This week on the Friday Podcast, I invited PotPieGirl to talking about generating traffic using free methods.
I’d seen her twitter exchanges with Miles Baker and found that she’s pretty proficient in building sites on Squidoo (the social networking site founded by marketer and author Seth Godin) and generate affiliate marketing income from her efforts.
During the course of our discussion, I found out:
How she got started in affiliate marketing
Her strategy for traffic generation and how she got involved in social media marketing
How she balances her time with a spouse and kids to take care of too
How 2007′s “Squidoo Slap” (where Google placed less prominence on Squidoo lenses) has affected her business
