Affiliate Marketing with Integrity (a Conversation with Pat Flynn)

One of the easiest and most lucrative ways to monetize your blog is through affiliate marketing. For example, you review a book and include an affiliate link to the appropriate product page on Amazon. If you readers click on the link and buy the book, Amazon pays you a commission.

This is how I got started back in 2008. I didn’t make much money initially, but it was enough to cover my blog hosting fees. Fast forward to today. Affiliate marketing is my single biggest source of income. That’s why I believe it should be part of every blogger’s monetization strategy.

In addition to Brendon—who is perhaps the most energetic and inspiring presenter I have ever heard—we heard from several surprise speakers.

No New Podcast for a Few Weeks

I will not be publishing a new podcast until October 2nd. I am working hard with my team to finish a couple of really exciting, but demanding projects. I am making the choice to invest my hours in these and skip the podcast for a few weeks.

Thanks for your support. I look forward to connecting with you soon. I will continue to publish my blog on Mondays and Fridays.
