So Finchie has a running tagline on his blog that says “If you are a newbie CPA affiliate marketer who doesn’t really understand what I’m chatting about but wants to, I have a “Guide to CPA Marketing” ebook coming out in December. Contact for details.”. The problem is since this first appeared on the blog last year, one would expect it to have come out Dec 2009. It’s now nearing the end of Feb 2010, and still no sign. Maybe he meant Dec 2010. Or even Dec 2011. Who knows.
In any case, experienced affiliate Jonathan Volk who bought a house last year, mainly off the back of his proceeds from Azoogle campaigns, has decided to expand his brand from merely the affiliate blogger game, to the affiliate product owner space with the release of his new affiliate marketing guide.
Will this make you a thuper, duper affiliate? Will you be buying your own house in June this year off of CPA commissions, following Jon’s recipe of 11 secret herbs and spices, wrapped in a sesame seed bun? Not likely, unless you include some elbow grease and long hours into the equation.
In any case, his guide gives you a couple of tips to get started, and he’ll be organizing a series of free webinars (the first will be a PPV webinar, I’m guessing by either AffPortal’s Corey Bornmann or PPV Playbook’s David Ford), but you’ll have to be on his list to find out.
There’s also a referral contest and the 2 marketers who send the most leads through their lists will win Apple iPads, plus another iPad will be given away in a random drawing. You need to be already on his list to join in the referral contest.
