A Hectic few weeks
It’s been a hectic few weeks and as such I have not updated the blog for a while – the idea was that I had a load of content in my head that I wanted to jot down on the way to the Bristol Affiliate event last Friday; a good idea that ended up being spoiled by flooding and a distinct lack of trains.
So what have the past few weeks entailed?
A lot of work€¦
Firstly I’ve taken on a new member of staff (this officially happened just before I went to Barbados) who has been doing a fantastic job so far.
I’ve started working on a few more affiliate programs (we now have seven programs either running or soon to be running)
I’ve managed to bag myself a shiny new black macbook and seeing as I’m running Linux (Ubuntu) at home this means I’m now living a windows free life. It also means I can work better on the go as I have MySQL, Apache and PHP all up and running locally.
More Affiliate Work…
Whilst I may have been finding it hard to find time to think, I have managed to find a little time not only to get the building blocks in place for a few new sites, but also to start to teach Lindsey (my wife) a little more about how affiliate marketing works and get her to start doing some content for a freebie site, motivating her to allowing her to spend all the profits at Lush.
I’m also happy to say that I’ve been invited by Matt to speak at the A4UEXPO in October – it’s building up to be a great event so it will be nice to see a few of you there.
It seems that more and more Affiliate Events are now being organised on Facebook – if you’ve not signed up yet I really would say it’s a good idea. The next one is on Thursday in Covent Garden so if you’re in town do pop along and say hello. Hopefully I’ll find some more time over the next few days to actually put up the posts that I’ve been meaning to do for the past month or two.
