Three Things I Learned from the Affiliate Marketing Boot Camp – Here’s Your Chance to Learn Too!

Did you miss the Hack Genealogy Affiliate Marketing Boot Camp on 21 November 2015? I had the privilege of being the moderator for two information-packed sessions  The Basics of Affiliate Marketing and Creative Affiliate Marketing Campaigns and Methods presented by my friend and colleague, Thomas MacEntee.  

We had a full house and there were so many excellent questions by the attendees. Thomas broke down this often difficult-to-grasp concept into an easy-to-follow format, defined the confusing terminology, and provided comprehensive syllabus materials for both sessions. You can now get all of this information in the Affiliate Marketing Boot Camp – To Go! package for a special price of $26.95. Click here to purchase now.

I personally took three full pages of notes during the sessions.  Here are my top three takeaways:

1. There is no “easy” button. There is a bit of a learning curve before you can be successful at this stuff. Different platforms, different accounts, different terms of service, etc. Thomas provided a thorough overview, and even though I have already dipped my toes in the pool, I now I need to do some homework myself to see how I can effectively work affiliate marketing into my business plan.

2. Plan. Plan. Plan. It is not too early to start planning out my campaigns for 2016. Thomas offered some fabulous suggestions and resources and I can’t wait to try them. While everyone else is shopping on Black Friday, I will be home planning my 2016 affiliate marketing strategy!

3. I CAN DO THIS!  Yes there is a learning curve, and I know I have to prepare the groundwork for my success. But..I know I can do this thanks to all of the great tips I learned in this boot camp.

Fearless Females Blog Post: March 26: Education

March 26 — What education did your mother receive? Your grandmothers? Great-grandmothers? Note any advanced degrees or special achievements.

[Note: Portions of this post originally ran during the Fearless Females series in March 2010]

[Note: due to unforeseen circumstances, this entry is being posted one day late].

My mother graduated from high school but did not go to college (her parents could not afford it). Mom was very smart and good at math. But she went to work after high school and after she married my father worked part time. I think she sometimes regretted not being able to go to college, and she worked very hard to make sure I was able to, and was so proud that I went to graduate school to earn my M.F.A. degree.

My grandmothers each had what was likely the equivalent of an 8th grade education, but by no means were they unintelligent women. They were at a disadvantage being immigrants and, but somehow they managed their households, raised their children, were able to hold down jobs speaking very little English.
