Affiliate Marketing: The Next Generation

General Add comments

It does seem that recently for me a blog post without some kind of excuse about why I’ve not been able to keep the content coming to you guys is a rarity.

My dog ate my affiliate website. Matt Cutts and his team of evil search engine genius’ kidnapped my mojo. It’s been too hot. etc etc etc.

However this time I’ve got an absolute cracker, a bona fide iron clad “I’ve just not been well enough” excuse. What is more I know that you’ll all understand exactly where I’m coming from!! I can sense you’re all on the edge of your seats here, so without further ado let me show you what has kept me from the loving bosom of my blog readers this time.

Introducing My Latest Affiliate Project…

Definately my most time consuming and exhausting project to date. Introducing baby affiliate, due for launch February 5th 2012!

Like a Lead Duck To Water

Without boring you with the gory details it’s probably fair to say I initially took to pregnancy like a lead duck to water. Lets just say I’ve not been this slim since my early 20’s and I hope never to repeat the extreme crash diet plan I’ve just been through 😉 It’s not been a walk in the park for Duncan either, he’s had to listen to me complaining these last few weeks and let me assure you I’m going to be writing next years Oxford English Dictionary definition of “Moaning”.

Getting My Affiliate Mojo Back on Track…

However, before you all get sick of the deafening sound of violins I’m happy to say I’m much better now and have most of my old mojo back again. In the last few weeks I’ve been able to think more clearly and have been having lots of Google Panda related fun (and some very early encouraging results from my efforts) so expect a post on that soon.

I’ve also been tinkering with social media and having some general Twitter fun so I have in mind a post about how affiliates can use Twitter and actually engage with potential customers and key influencers. And some of my very own tinpot theories about how Google might use data from Twitter as quality signals. Of course this will be very inexpert compared to what true social gurus could tell you, but I think a lot of affiliates find it hard to really work out how they should interact on that medium – so I hope to be able to give some basic help.

Oh, I’ve also got a bit to tell you about affiliate marketing in Australia and the lack of competition around affiliate content sites thereof.

So in short: Sorry I’ve been crap this year, insert excuse here, please let me off, I really do miss blogging and chatting with you all.

You Can Help Inspire Me…

Something else that’d help get me blogging again. What do you want to hear about right now? If you have things you’re interested in that aren’t being covered in other blogs please tell me in the comments below or via my Contact Form.

Hearing from y’all would really, really, help me build a bit of momentum again so please if you have anything at all in mind – tell me about it!!

I hope to be talking to you all a lot more often in the next half of the year :)

  15. Mansoor Siddique Says:

    Congratulations, though your life as you know it is about to change forever. Do you know if its a boy or girl yet?



  16. Tye Says:

    Cool – congrats Kirsty :)

  17. Kirsty Says:

    Thanks everyone, it’s a bit of an exhausting and confusing time right now!

    Mansoor – No too early to tell, I will be finding out though. Far too impatient to not do that.

    Andy H – oh haha, I KNEW someone would say something about my age!

  18. Mansoor Says:

    Kirsty you know that days of just going on holiday are gone right? I have to think of nursery, and holidays before making any arrangements!

    I am sure you will be getting lots of advice from lost of people but as a first time father (though my boy is almost 3 now) I was totally no prepared for the eating pooping machine that was there.

    Baby clothes sure get cutesy stuff, but everything by three off and be prepared to change him or her every few hours..

    But honestly speaking this will be your best project to date, and hey if you can survive Florida and panda whats this little one going to do :)
