If you want to be successful as an affiliate marketer, you've got to read this ebook by Jeremy Palmer. I'm late on posting this but there's a little surprise from Jeremy Palmer this year. He pulled his ebook in October, I thought never to return. Then, a few months later he put it online and made it free.
In truly generous form Jeremy doesn't even require your email address plus he gives you his spreadsheet templates. I can't even tell that he's using affiliate links in the book. He also announced that he'll update his ebook in 2008. The principles of affiliate marketing he talks about work well for internet marketing in general. The reason I trust affiliate marketers is that if they don't convert, they don't make money. They usually put money up-front to test what works.
The top ranking keywords on my blog are still affiliate marketing related terms. I ran newspapergrl on this tool to find out. Thanks to Paul (here's his internet marketing blog) for the tip.
