Do you let your Affiliates Deep Link?

It’s nothing new and has been around since the dawn of the Internet but deep linking is ever more critical, and if you don’t let your marketing and affiliates partners deep link then you’ re likely missing the mark, and losing customers, according to a new Nielsen report. In 2004, about 40 percent of people visited a homepage and then drilled down to where they wanted to go and 60 percent used a deep link that took them directly to a page or destination inside a site. In 2008, said Dr Nielsen, only 25 percent of people travel via a homepage. The rest search and get Read More…

The Domain Game

A new book by David Kesmodel of the “Wall Street Journal” will delve into the business of domain investment (no I’ve not read it yet but it’s going to be on on my “must read list” once it’s published) .

The software is designer to handle 50 checks a day on “online mode” and can handle more Read More…

One of the longest ongoing debates in the affiliate industry is “how much can a person make”, and there are lots of sites made by people claiming to have made millions, presenting fake checks while they attempt to suck money and life blood from unfortunate web marketeers who are looking for ways to kick start their revenue. Ask any serious affiliate how much money they make and you’ll likely get one of two answers “Not Enough” and “Could be more”, no dollar figures.
