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.

Shawn Collins and I are speaking at Inbound Marketing Summit in Dallas today about employing affiliate marketing strategies to monetize blogs.

Below is the video from our presentation along with the slides.

If you have any questions about the presentation or if you have any other affiliate marketing questions that you'd like answered, please feel free to ask away on

This week, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Z. Kelly Queijo for Handshake 2.0 and Murray Newlands for his blog,, regarding my take on the state of the Affiliate Marketing Industry and new trends on the horizon.

I also gave some tips to affiliates just starting out and some advice to merchants with respect to certain things they do, that I just don't like.
