Shoemoney : Best Affiliate Marketing Blog of 2006

SMS Text

Affiliate marketing is nothing new, in fact, online affiliate marketing has been around for 10 years and was a part of the online marketing mix well before paid search hit the scene. But as paid search took off along with contextual advertising, affiliate marketing seemed to take back seat for a couple years.

Enter problems with click fraud into the paid search equation and what better way to prevent such damaging practices than to pay out a percentage of the sale price to the sites selling your product?

If anyone has led the rebirth of affiliate marketing and infiltrated the publishing and search communities as an advocate of the practice, that person is Jeremy Schoemaker – Shoemoney.

Shoemoney has taken affiliate marketing to the next level by publishing his real life experiences on his Shoemoney blog and his Webmasterradio.fm Show, Net Income. He’s become the unofficial talking head of affiliate marketing, arbitrage, and monetization among the search community and at the same time, developed a business around it.

    I agree 100%. I came across Jeremy’s site not too long ago. I am in the process of trying to build some following to a blog I feel very strongly about. His blog has been a great help with solid tips. I even joined his ad system and am in the process of using him as my affiliate conduit.
    Great Pick

    Affiliate marketing is growing like crazy! Especially with the economy the way it is right now. I've been seeing all kinds of scams on the internet just growing and growing. Its a ridiculous state of affairs. I read this scam about a guy that sells an online “web meeting” product about a job. The applicant pays $100 for a supposed “online interview” but there is no job at all and the guys out $100? It just take people to come up with that one original idea that works! Here's an idea I'm trying: http://floads.com
