Make a Fortune Promoting Other People's Stuff Online: How Affiliate Marketing Can Make You Rich

One thing that makes this book different from her "Affiliate Program Handbook" is that in the digital title she does two things: it's more step by step, and she teaches you how she does her pay per click campaigns.

This book isn't so much a step by step guide as it is a blueprint. What Rosalind does is explain in great detail what affiliate marketing is, what you need to get started, and where to go to find good affiliate programs related to what you want to sell. In other words, you get an outline of the process that's involved, and the steps you need to take.

One thing I've learned over the last 7+ years that I've been in business is that most of those who are new to online business just want to jump in and start making money immediately. Usually they have some kind of bill they need to pay quickly, or they need extra money. The problem here is that although online business will get you started more quickly, it still takes a little time to start making money.

That's why Rosalind's system works so well. It helps you lay a strong foundation for affiliate business success by introducing you to the key principles and showing you how to get started. She will also introduce you to the basics of internet marketing, outline the most effective techniques, and show you how to start marketing your business once you've built your first website.

For those who are interested in getting started in affiliate marketing (it is the easiest business to start), or for those who need a good refresher course, start here. This is pretty straightforward stuff, and it will help you understand the basics pretty well.

Unlike a lot of internet marketing information out there, this is pretty hype free, and the information she offers is solid.

The 2009 National Book Award Winners

You can follow Jeff's account of the National Book Awards gala from press row in his running comments to his post earlier tonight, but here's a quick wrapup of the winners, which include, we're thrilled to say, our own choice for the Best Book of 2009, Let the Great World Spin, Colum McCann's tender ensemble novel of New York City at the moment of Philippe Petit's tightrope walk between the Twin Towers. The #nba09 Twitter thread was very long, and the news reports of the awards are rather short so far tonight, but Jeff will be back in the daylight hours with a lengthier first-hand account of the evening.

The winners:

* Fiction: Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann
* Nonfiction: The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt by T.J. Stiles
* Poetry: Transcendental Studies: A Trilogy by Keith Waldrop
* Young People's Literature: Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice by Phillip Hoose

Also, as previously announced, Gore Vidal was honored for his Distinguished Contribution to American Letters (and apparently stole the show with his riffs on FDR and the state of modern publishing) and Dave Eggers won the 2009 Literarian Award. And the results of the public voting for the 60th anniversary Best of the National Book Awards Fiction prize were revealed, with Flannery O'Connor's Complete Stories finishing ahead of five other finalists from the original field of all 77 previous NBA fiction winners.

CandyGirl Video: Sweet Satisfaction Jasmine Grey Special Edition

Sometimes a girl doesn't need to be over-the-top explicit - to be sexy. Sometimes a simple peek will be as sweet - as an entire view!

That's what makes these `Candy Girl' videos so satisfying. And even though I'm probably not the intended audience -- this episode is definitely my favorite.

Unlike later releases -- which focus on just one girl - this original issue offers a much wider variety of babes, situations, and types of sexual encounters to enjoy.

A lithe blonde - wearing a micro-bikini - pretends to be asleep in bed. Her tossing and turning provides us with an array of tantalizing views.

A buxom Britney Spears-style blonde relaxes on a sofa - while trying on different dental floss-sized bikinis, and sometimes hiking her t-shirt (to temptingly show us what's underneath).

A cute brunette stands, bends, sits, and walks up stairs - while letting the camera move in as closely (underneath her skirt) as it wants. Some of Candy Girl's nicest (and most original) work is their outdoor upskirt segments - where young women wear short billowy dresses (with string panties underneath) while traipsing or strolling in public - on a very windy day. (How smart is that?)

In a type of scene unique to this episode (but shouldn't be) - two young women practice kissing while clothed -- and later while almost nude and lying together on a bed. The camera lingers over every inch, and the audio nicely relays the smacking sounds of their gently parting lips.

For guys, this video will bring many (adolescent) fantasies vividly to life - using women who are obviously well past adolescence. For girls (who want to learn how to be sexy), it's sometimes fun - to see how the other-male-half lives. (It may not take as much as you'd think.) Enjoy.

Free - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

I never bought Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. I was just not that into it when I was already dug in deep with Halo 3 and couldn't care much for any other FPS shooter for a while after that. Eventually though the game lost its appeal and I started renting video games just about every weekend between school work and other activities.

I rented COD 4 and played through the campaign. I liked it a lot and thought that the graphics were rather impressive compared to what I had seen in COD 3. I never touched the multi-player because I basically figured it would be the same as any other shooter just with modern weapons (which I got to experience in 2006 with Rainbow Six: Vegas). I knew the game was good and I very much liked the franchise, so I ended up purchasing Call of Duty: World at War last November. I didn't find anything bad about this game at all because I love World War II games. I can switch from modern or past and it doesn't matter to me. I levelled up to 10th prestige 65 and edged off of that once this past summer was over with.

The hype eventually reached out to me and brought me in, so I bought the game earlier today and played straight through the campaign. I don't like how there isn't co-op. It would truly make this game much more enjoyable when you have an experience to share with your friends. It's like sharing and living in a whole other world and being active participants in these dangerous, death-defying missions beyond most of our capabilities we find ourselves thrust into doing.

I thought the campaign trailer was stunning and it was very gripping. There are many touches to realism and well, you'd just have to play it. The ending or cliffhanger was awesome. I'll probably pre-order Modern Warfare 3 right away.

The multi-player for me wasn't that big of a jump from Call of Duty: World at War. Like I said, it's basically everything changed but the basic structure of the play style is the same. Coming from playing a World War II game with those weapons, I'm not facing much difficulty holding my own in a modern setting. The transition is very easy, almost transparent. I guess that might depend though on your ability to adapt to new environments, so it might not be. It was though for me. I'm going to say though that from all the levels I've played they were really great and I'm looking forward to playing some more tomorrow.

Googled: The End of the World As We Know It

This book is all about Google from garage to cell phones, in chronological order, the good and the not-so good story. Perfect for a student bookworm dealing with websites, there are lessons to be learned by studying the trials, tribulations, and successes of this company. What I am into is creating successes for myself professionally. Whenever a book like this comes up in the Vine Program, I order it.

I haven't read this author's other books, but I have read studies like them. By reading books like these, and particularly books about big businesses like Google, Microsoft, or Apple, I get a bird's-eye-view of what makes failures and successes. This helps me very much in my current job dealing with customers, and management.

This book is particularly good because it starts at the beginning of Google's story, and ends now. And in this financial climate, the book takes an honest look at what could be around the bend.

I haven't read a book on Google before, so the first few chapters provided a useful history of the company and background of the founders. The author paints a picture of a somewhat arrogant persona in the engineers who believe in the art of the possible, who use a combination of their intellects and technology to pry open the covers of various industries and essentially rewire them completely. This impression is useful in conveying not only the unprecedented changes being fostered on the world by Google, but also leading in the major part of the book, assessing its impact on everybody else.

I'm a huge fan of open source, open standards, etc etc so I'll be the last one to sing the praises of Microsoft or Apple - but where we've bashed these companies to death with questions about their monopolistic ambitions, this book raises similar questions about Google. Yes, pretty much everything Google offers is free - at least for you - but 100% of the cost is being shouldered by advertisers. Is this fair? To what extent does the company have the right to kill traditional media, and is this really Google's fault at all? Is Google's approach an abuse of privacy and copyright laws or not?

The author delves into a range of different areas - some of which have been discussed in the media, and others are ambitious and thought provoking. I'd recommend this for anyone who has an interest in pop-tech or web 2.0 - while I don't necessarily agree with the authors conclusions, he raises some excellent questions.

May Referral Payment $3,697. 78 - My Biggest Payment From Amazon

I have been making some cool cash since I changed my method of promoting my affiliate programmes. For example here's a screenshot of the amount I made in May this year. This was a few months after I followed some of the tips in this book. I have 8 blogs so that should give you an idea of the amount of effort required to keep them relevant and fresh with content. I won't be discussing what product niche these blogs target for now as I'm currently trying to build and nurture it. But I will be prepared to discuss a few of them if anyone is interested.

I must stress that this currently works for me because of the number of Twitter followers I have. The methods and tips used assumes that you already have at least 1000 Twitter followers.That way your chances of click-throughs are greater.

I would also like to point out that depending on your campaign, your earning may vary compare to mine. But one thing you should not let get in the way is doubt. If you have doubts about how much you could make and the time to put into promoting your programmes, then this is definitely not for you. So, if you are serious about making money just like the rest of us, keep reading and follow the simple steps described below.

Finally, if anyone wants the modified copy of the Python script I use for promoting mine on Twitter and other social networking sites, please leave a comment in the comments area and I will get back to you.

Altec Lansing inMotion COMPACT iM310 Portable Speakers for iPod and MP3 Players

I like this dock and use it a lot. Friends have also commented that they are impressed with the sound from such a compact unit. One of the cool features is that it runs for a very long time on 3 AA batteries, which makes it perfect for taking along on a camping or beach trip, or just out in the backyard for BBQ music. On a camping trip I don't have to worry about it running out of charge.

Just pop in a set of fresh batteries if I need to. But I don't need to do that very often because it seems to play forever on 3 batteries.

When I'm at home I keep it in the kitchen plugged into AC power. I think it sounds darn good for it's size, and I'm fairly picky about that sort of thing. I would buy it again and would recommend it to friends.

perfect product for the price . sounds awesome works with ipod. batteries last longer than most rechargeables. runs on three double a batteries and plugs into the wall. easy to use. looks like it costs hundreds but was only fifty.
