I recently erased and reset my iPhone, so I could start with a clean install. My home screen was cluttered with unused apps, my battery was being drained from app background activity, and I received dozens of useless notifications every day.
I just finished a stroll down memory lane (archive.org). It was fun to see my old blogroll, MySpace profile, and other nostalgia.
I started this blog in late 2006, and have restarted it four times. I’ve never put a lot of effort into my personal blog because I’ve always prioritized my business sites. 12 years later, I’m giving JeremyPalmer.com another reboot.
I received an interesting email the other day from a company we linked to from one of our websites.
In short, the email was a request to remove links from our site to their site. We linked to this company on our own accord, with no prior solicitation, because we felt it would be useful to our site visitors, which is generally why people link to things on the Internet.
The most common question I get from affiliates is “What should I promote?” Unfortunately, most of the people asking this question don’t understand what it takes to create a successful affiliate campaign.
People want easy answers. I often hear things like “Just tell me what works”, or “What merchants do you make the most money with?” The problem with this thought process is that it’s not enough to understand what campaigns are profitable; you also need to understand why.
