    Interesting. They gave us a demo recently, and their products are really interesting – especially for ecommerce. We’ll soon be adding PopularMedia’s “social notes” to our customer reviews site

    This is a great podcast. I love the whole thing about making your marketer look better…up their status…help them look good to who they are passing along the info to.

    I am in affiliate links, which are doing very well. I was referred to this book from a friend – it is not an affiliate link at all, I just want to share the resource –

    It really helped me pull together my affiliate program and make money in legit way, so I highly recommend it. Compiled by Michael David McGuire, a top online marketing expert.

    Anyway, thank you for a great post. Your blog is incredible. I will be reading. Thanks!
