1) There's something very fishy going on
I've seen it time and time again.
Affiliates who are first to jump on new traffic sources are the ones who end up making the lion's share of the profits.
It makes sense of course. Affiliates often need high volume traffic sources with low competition to make the numbers work.
When you're only working with a percentage of the revenue of the sale, you've got to be on the leading edge.
We've been testing a massive new traffic source, and it's not Facebook.
I bet you've heard of the free online dating site “Plenty of Fish”? It has even made a cameo in the latest Lady Gaga video clip.
However, most people don't know that they have been working on a really significant and powerful ad platform to tap into the 90 million visitors each month (or 2.1 billion page views).
That's a massive opportunity, especially when you see how powerful the targeting is.
What's even better, they don't have super strict rules on what you can and can't advertise. So you can send to squeeze pages without any sort of “Google Slap”.
This is a big opportunity for those willing to get in there and test this out.
I asked Mike to put together a quick start guide for you.
If you're in the market for low competition, low cost, highly targeted clicks, be sure to check it out.

2) Can a $9.95 ebook change your life?
I've been reading a lot lately.
Already this year I've read about 10 business books. Some of the highlights have been “Made to Stick”, “The Dip”, “Outliers”, “The Next Evolution of Marketing”, “Ready, Fire, Aim” and “Predictably Irrational”. I've been getting a lot out of them.
Last week I stumbled across a blog called “Far Beyond the Stars” by a guy called Everett Bogue.
On his blog, he discusses the journey of quitting his job in New York City, selling everything and freeing himself of the ball and chain that modern society had shackled him with.
Instead of failing like people said he would, he thrived, largely through embracing the virtues of being minimalist.
Minimalism is not a new thing, however, the way and the context that he talks about it in is amazing and it's not all about depriving yourself of things.
His eclectic philosophy ties together a lot of my own thoughts (and a lot of thoughts from business books I've been reading lately) into something that makes complete sense to me, even if it is counter-culture.
While I reckon he goes way beyond what I could, or would want to ever do as a family man, the core principles remain true.
Take a look at some of his blog posts here.
If you like some of what you read, you simply MUST pick-up his eBook, “The Art of Being Minimalist”.
I'm serious. I've sent copies to most of my friends.

Thought for today: If you want to catch a trout
