About a year ago, Tricia and I decided to create a Slack team for affiliate marketers: Affiliate Slackers. This is a paid team, set-up with the first month free then $12.97 / month after (we decided to charge for access, to only have serious people included in the team). In the first 6 months we brought in a few hundred dollars after having spent $220 to build the site and automated subscription process. Here’s how it was built:
2-Factor (or Multi-Factor) Authentication (MFA) is a must for many applications. But if you’re sharing a login with someone, there isn’t an easy way to properly secure your account. We
have had this problem at FMTC, but I recently installed this solution:
Recently, all of the URLs typically listed under “Page Banner was Clicked From” in ShareASale’s Activity Details Report were blank. This was frustrating because we at the Wine Club Group use that data to determine which pages are converting.
Thankfully, the fix was very easy.
Full disclaimer: I’m FMTC’s CTO and product manager for FMTC’s Publisher Toolkit. I don’t pay for my access (but would if I didn’t get it for free).
FMTC aggregates, verifies, standardizes and adds meta data to coupons and deals from over 10,000 merchants and provides that data via API to enterprise customers. But FMTC’s Publisher Toolkit gives that same data to publishers and bloggers at a fraction of the price (starting at $7.99 / month).
My friend and fellow Scouter Buffalo Bob told me last year about WordCamp Buffalo and when it came around this year, he encouraged me to speak. WordCamp is “a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you.”
There are probably 100 different ways to get from JFK to ASE14, but I’m going to share with you a very easy (and affordable) one:
JFK -> AirTrain -> Jamaica Station -> E Subway -> 7th Ave
Time: 1hr 15min
Cost: about $21 round-trip
Affiliate Karaoke has always been a popular event for a group of Affiliate Summit attendees, but hasn’t happened as an official event the past few shows. While a few of us arranged our own get-together, it’s just not the same when a gambling-addicted Elvis impersonator named Eddie controls the stage because he makes the casino lots of money at the slot machines. So Nate, Tricia and I decided to do something about it.
