Makers Gonna Make

Cribbed Content for March 6th

Posted by on Mar 6, 2009 in Rambles |

I haven’t had the chance to do very many of these during February… the month was filled with birthday celebrations, a vacation, and a lot of Wii in the evening since I’ve been strangely obsessed with Guitar Hero and Animal Crossing: City Folk.  But since I’ve been back from vacation I’ve seen some great stuff, so I want to share.

Forgive me, some of it will be a bit out of date.

  • Geno Prussakov put together a great list of affiliate marketing events in 2009.
  • California is looking into a tax for online sales.  Scott Jangro has written an open letter to the California outlining why it’s a bad idea.  I am going to take his advice and grab the letter to send myself as a resident of California.
  • Read the full California Assembly Bill 178 and contact your representatives to explain why this is a bad idea for affiliate marketers in California!
  • 20/20 contacted the Performance Marketing Alliance for some background on affiliate marketing for a series they’re doing on the proliferation of work-at-home schemes.  It’s good to see that they’re able to do some positive PR for the industry already… very promising since they’re off to a slow start.
  • I wrote another guest post for Marketing Pilgrim, this time on The Search Engine Known as Twitter.
  • If you’re at all interested in reading about my rambles about my Caribbean cruise vacation, check out my Posterous blog.
