Anyway, I've received my first payment thanks to Tony, an extremely friendly chap.
here's some examples of the Workcircle widget for those who haven't yet come across it. More
I was asked to run a time limited campaign on Compare Sat Nav for an insurance product tht offered a tie into sat nav systems (visit the site and you'll see who I'm talking about). After a few days, I've checked my stats and noticed something interesting. More
If you are a PPC expert, want some free publicity and can spare around an hour a day for 5 days, you might be able to help me.
I can't really explain too much at the moment else it will ruin what I'm trying to achieve. If you match the following criteria, and you want to help, contact me ASAP. More
I've spent all morning working on this and am rather pleased with the end result.
Check out the Compare Sat Nav page for the Navman F20 at http://www.comparesatnav.co.uk/gps/navman-f20.html and you'll see a live example of what I'm about to talk about. More
I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed a drop in sales but I have and I'm blaming the Summer. What with people jetting off to Benidorm or simply lounging out in that rare thing we call sun, there are less people flexing their credit cards.
I suppose that some of my sites are seasonal and Summer for me is a low point for these sites. More
I've logged into my Tradedoubler account and noticed a new program (that doesn't seem to be set up properly) called BT Web Clicks. Intrigued, I followed the links to here, BT's answer to all your PPC woes.
This really does raise some interesting questions. More
Just a heads up to this offer I'm pushing over at Compare Sat Nav. Thought it may interest a few others.
If you buy Tesco Car Insurance before mid September, they'll give you £100 off a TomTom sat nav system. More
This story (ChoicesUK have called in the administrators) has been picked up by all the major news outlets but thought it was worth blogging. Plus, whilst I was on the BBC's website, I've noticed a set of social bookmarking links at the bottom of the post! The Beeb's gone all Web 2.0! More
The idea for this article came to me last night whilst I was thinking about all the thing's I've got to do (very busy chap lately!)
Friends and family outside of affiliate marketing keep asking what exactly it is I do all day, "you know, apart from sitting around?!"
We can all roll off a definition of affiliate marketing (if you can't, what exactly is it that you do all day?!) but have you ever broken it down to gain a different perspective? More
Over the past few months, new affiliate networks have popped up.
Fraser has highlighted a Swedish network targeting the UK called Affiliator (apparently bigger than Tradedoubler though I suggest not - and I don't seem to be the only one.)
I popped over to Affiliator to see what clients they have. This is where my question comes from! More
If you live in Wales, you will be familiar with S4C - the Welsh version of Channel 4. Here in Wales, we don't get channel 4. What we get is a BBC channel (S4C) that shows some programmes from Channel 4 and other Welsh language programmes.
Matthew Willis has created a petition to ask for a choice of what to watch: channel 4 or S4C. Matthew doesn't ask for one or the other - his vision of Wales is for both to co-exist.
Please visit http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/WelshChannel4/ and add your voice if you are in agreement. More
After reading this A4U Thread about VAT and Google Adwords, I reclaimed a nice wad of cash. OK, maybe not that nice as it was only $25!
The problems came when I tried to cash a US Dollar cheque in the UK. More
As an outcast who doesn't use Wordpress to blog, I have lacked the abilities that most bloggers take for granted.
I've just added pinging and trackback abilities. More
You've probably noticed the red double underlined links that appear on this site and you'll have probably guessed that when you hover over them, they turn red. I have always wanted to test out whether they would work well in a product review so here's a bit about an affiliate marketing book currently for sale. More
When it comes to web applications, I tended to fall back on a portfolio of open source applications. For blogs, I would use Nucleus, for content management, Website Baker was my preferred weapon. The only problem with this is the Website Baker wasn't as flexible as I required it to be and Nucleus now appears to be a stagnant project.
Lately, I've been using a lot of hand coded solutions as these do exactly what I want. I don't need a spiffingly wonderful backwnd if it's just me using it. I don't need plugins and modules that I never use. More
Everything's been transferred now and should be back to normal. Not everything went smooth and the horrid 1&1 holding page was displayed for a while on most of my sites whilst the DNS changes propagated around the web.
Some sites suffered as a result of the move. More
