When it rains, it pours. I got tagged twice today with this meme making the rounds by PlanetAndrea and CasThompson.
Like a game of ‘Pass the Message’ which you play in a big group, depending on who you check out, the meme is known as:
At first look, it seems like Shoemoney and DaveN are on to the right thing. Then again, it could mean that DaveN is good at following formats after being tagged by the Shoemeister.
So this freeform means you have the right to rename the meme (Master Rename Rights so to speak).
Instructions: (Especially for those I’m tagging)
From what I gather, you are supposed to:
- Disclose 5 personal things about yourself
- Tag another 5
victims friends to pass this labor of love to.

It’s 10 more days till Affiliate Summit West (ASW) and I’m stoked at the opportunity. (Incidentally, the event is sold out)
It’ll be my first trip to the US in about 4 years and I’m planning to hit Fry’s, Best Buy, get my fill of prime rib and margaritas in Vegas.
Here’s my to do list for ASW:
- Attend the great sessions planned
- Meet and greet the affiliate managers present, as not many have a point of presence in Asia.
- Finally put a face to many of the personalities whose blogs I’ve been reading, or emailing, or catching their web radio programs, or whose forums I’ve been participating on.
- Get a Shoemoney t-shirt (one of the new black one maybe?)
- Get some nice WickedFire merchandise at their booth
- Catch some great parties
This is one of the few times I’d be heading halfway around the world (I’ll be battening down the hatches in Asia to work on a couple of major projects once I get back).
So far, I look forward to the opportunity to meet and greet with Shoemoney, Jon F, Anik Singal, PlanetAndrea, Chris Hooley, Scott Jangro, Robyn Tippins, Shawn Collins, Missy Ward, the LunarPages blogging team (including Joe Whyte) and it looks like Pepperjam will have a good presence there too.
I might be approaching some of you to do interviews, so you are forwarned, and perhaps forearmed.
If you’re planning to interview any of the folks at ASW, here’s a couple of pointers (more…)
Here’s a roundup of insightful posts:
Shoemoney put out a tasty post and buzzed industry contacts with the hypothetical “Would you hire Matt Cutts? If you had to come up with a dollar figure to offer him what would it be? What would his job title and job description be?”
A number of informative and insightful responses from the likes of Kris Jones (CEO PepperJamSearch), Patrick Gavin (CEO Text Link Ads), Greg Hartnett (Best Of The Web), Christine Kim, Rand Fishkin (Owner SEOMOZ), Jason Calacanis (Former CEO Weblogs INC & AOL Exec), Neil Patel – CEO ACS Web Consulting, Danny Sullivan, Aaron Wall – SEOBook
Here’s the link: Would You Hire Matt Cutts?
Robyn Tippins looks at the backlash from the bloggers perspective from the proposed acquistion of Performancing’s assets by PayPerPost (as mentioned earlier PerPerPost Acquires Performancing Assets). The PPP and Performancing deal nixed? Good thing or bad thing?

Has Click Fraud been blown out of proportion? Jon F gives his perspective and gives his fix to the solution. The fact that he filed his post under “Industry Bullshit” will give an indication of his straight up, in your face perspective on the issue. (I’m looking forward to checking out his session together with Shoemoney at Affiliate Summit West)

Social Marketer Michelle MacPhearson is back. Having given birth to a beautiful son, Colum, expect more social traffic tips from Michelle this year. I learned quite a bit from her about social traffic generation last year and will be expecting more good things from her this year.

Every week, yet another journalist or online marketer predicts the Death of Blogging. Ironicially, sometimes these ‘predictions’ are made by bloggers.
Far from dying, there’s a resurgence in blogging, judging by the flow of private equity and growth of blog networks.
Just look at the nearly 1,200 submissions for the Round 5 submissions for the 9rules Blog Network or check the stats at the Blog Network List. Darren Rowse’s b5media blog network got a nice chunk of capital funding too.
2007 will see a further evolution of blogging as we know it.
Perhaps ‘blogging’ (a truncation of weblog) may evolve as a term to fully encompass what it represents.
Here’re 4 trends I see this year.
- Offline to Online Content Migration
Even without Amazon and Google’s efforts to digitize content for the Internet, a multitude of content publishers (more…)
I was checking out community members who’d visited my blog over at MyBlogLog and checked out fellow Singapore Leonard Chen’s blog, especially his entry: Here comes the Affiliate Blog list.
It looks like Scott Jango might be on to starting something viral with his post: Have You Got An Affiliate Marketing Blog?
As you’re expect, the big guns of Affiliate Marketing: Ros Gardner, Shoemoney, Linda Buquet, Shawn Collins, Kris Jones, are already on the list, though I’d expect it’s just a matter of time before the likes of Ewen Chia, PlanetAndrea and Jon F appear too.
It’s confirmed, I’ll be heading to Las Vegas in late January for Shawn Collins’ Affiliate Summit West 2007.
I’ll be heading to the US for this event which’ll be useful to bring my affiliate marketing skills to a new level.
Highlights for the event include topics such as:
- Marketing Your Affiliate Site – Outside of the Box
- How to Recruit Super Affiliates
- Optimizing with Your Merchant Partner
- The Current State of Online Lead Generation
- Anatomy of a Viral Video — Maximum ROI
- Search Affiliates: Partners or Parasites?
- Optimizing Landing Pages
- Next Generation Affiliate Recruitment – Why What You Know Doesn’t Work Anymore
- Panel: Lead Generation the New Kids On the Block
What I’m looking forward to though are three sessions: (more…)
