About the Book

Since the 90’s, affiliate marketers have had a love affair with cookies – not the chocolate chip, or oatmeal variety – but the pieces of code that ultimately tracks affiliates’ sales and commissions earned.

These affiliate marketers are a diverse group. Some work part-time and earn enough to subsidize their income while others have created extremely lucrative businesses.

Ultimately, success is defined by the affiliates themselves.

To that end, we’ve asked affiliate marketers from around the globe to share their recipe for success and favorite cookie (or other yummy dessert).

The result is a mouth-watering collection of recipes and thought-provoking insights learned on their road to success – an interesting read and a wonderful addition to your own kitchen.

Info for Affiliate Marketers

It's All About The Cookies is now available on Amazon.  Here is a direct link to the book for you to review and/or purchase.
