“Food For Thought”
Affiliate Marketing 101. I sure wish that had been on the course list when I was in school. I would have paid way more attention than I did in some of my classes. If you have read much of what I have been doing, you probably know that I spend a lot of time learning. I just wish I had learned this much in college. As a matter of fact, I wonder how many credit hours I would have earned by now, hmmm.
I have been really interested in learning about all the buzz surrounding affiliate marketing. If you read my post the other day, I tried to explain how it works. I was reminded about how prevalent it is this morning at church when I bought my “Script” cards for all my grocery shopping for the next couple of weeks.
I work hard to leverage my money. I use every coupon I can find for products I would buy anyway, and that is an awesome way to stretch your money. I look at it as free money of sorts. When I buy the Script cards, it does not put money back in my pocket, but the church earns a small percentage. At first glance, it seems to be a pittance, a few percent. When you look closer though, when you do the math of many people using those cards for money they are going to spend anyway, it really adds up. It is a form of affiliate marketing. I am beginning to get a better understanding, and it make so much more sense to me.
I love to tell others about bargains that I come across. I just found a great one the other day that is totally free, so I want to share it with you, and encourage you to share it with your friends and family. It is similar to Groupon and Living Social. They send you great coupons from local and national businesses and it is free. As a matter of fact, there could be a little something extra in it for you. They reward you for referrals and like I said, it is FREE. You can check that out for yourself and see if it something that would be beneficial to you It is called Moolala
I better run and get all the recipes finished and posted. Oh, by the way, there is still time to sign up for the big affiliate marketing conference online next weekend and then the second part is live in Atlanta in August. Both events are included in the incredible deal they are offering now. I have been working on the preview homework and have learned a ton.
Don’t forget to check back soon for all the recipes for the week. Let me know what you think, we can start doing reviews of all these recipes, I’d love to hear from you.
