October 2008

Disclosure: If I'm not making money through affiliate links on the post you're currently reading, it's an oversight on my part and will be corrected soon.

I'm so stoked. Just got my new AC/DC Black Ice CD and it rocks. It has all the famous riffs that AC/DC is famous for and Brian's voice is still awesome.

My three favorite tracks are Rock N Roll Train, Skies on Fire and Big Jack.

This is the first CD that AC/DC has put out since 2000 and it was definitely worth the wait.

I'm fired up to go see them in concert in the upcoming weeks and really looking forward to hearing them play their new songs live.

There's no mistaking the fact that I am a proud supporter of most charities that directly fund breast cancer research and treatments as well as provide education and mammograms to the public.

I can't be more thrilled to announce that Affiliate Summit will be supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation during the upcoming Affiliate Summit Conference in Las Vegas, this January.

Affiliate Summit will be donating 100 percent of the funds received from the following sponsorships:

Affiliate Summit Staff Shirt Sponsorship – $7,500 – SOLD

  • Your logo on the front of the Affiliate Summit staff's shirt for the duration of the conference.
  • buy.at logo

    Affiliate Triathalon – $100.00 per person entry fee.

  • Sign up to participate in a Triathalon designed for affiliate marketers by affiliate marketers to be held on Tuesday, January 13th at 4:30pm at the Rio. We assure you that fun will be had by all participants and onlookers.
  • 1st Prize: a 10’x10’ non-corner booth during Affiliate Summit 2009 East (a $5,195 value); 2nd Prize: a Platinum Pass to Affiliate Summit 2009 East (a $1,249 value); 3rd Prize: a Gold Pass to Affiliate Summit 2009 East (a $549 value).

    While I've been asked what type of events will be held during the Triathalon, I have been sworn to secrecy. Just know that the games will be equally “winnable” by both men and women and we wouldn't make you do anything that we wouldn't do ourselves.

    In addition, Shawn Collins and myself, on behalf of Affiliate Summit, will be matching up to $5,000 in donations to NBCF.

    Affiliate marketers can make donations online or by check and receive recognition on the Affiliate Summit site for their generous contributions by forwarding a copy of the receipt to realdeal at affiliatesummit dot com.

    Make a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation today.

    ShipToTroops.com now features even more online retailers that ship to APO/FPO addresses, while bargains bagged give boost to Operation Homefront.

    I have some great news to announce. ShipToTroops.com, a site that I own along with Shawn Collins, has partnered with FlamingoWorld.com to provide additional money-saving opportunities for web-savvy buyers that need to ship their purchases to APO/FPO addresses.

    A portion of each online purchase at ShipToTroops.com is donated to Operation Homefront – an organization which provides emergency assistance and morale to servicemen and women, to the families they leave behind, and to wounded warriors when they return home.

    Shawn and I launched this cause-focused site earlier this year as we recognized that painless giving, made easy and convenient, allows everyone to participate and make a tangible difference in the world.

    I'm looking forward to leveraging the relationships and negotiating power of FlamingoWorld.com, so that ShipToTroops.com can offer access to over 1,000 online retailers providing discounts to buyers looking for that special gift to send their loved ones stationed overseas.

    Connie Berg, the President of FlamingoWorld.com is excited to partner with ShipToTroops.com to help us raise money for Operation Homefront, a cause that we all believe in strongly.

    The timing of this partnership couldn’t be more appropriate given the need for buyers to purchase holiday gifts early due to overseas shipping schedules.

    Retailers available via ShipToTroops.com include the Apple Store, Barnes & Noble, Bass Pro, BlueFly.com Circuit City, Dell, Foot Locker, GNC, Macy’s, RitzCamera.com, ToysRUs and hundreds more.
