I’d like to wish a Merry Christmas to all of the affiliate marketers out there.
I was just looking at my old record, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”, by Band Aid – that “Feed the World” song from back in the 80s.
Note, I have it on record – not some newfangled CD or MP3. Old timer.
Anyhow, I was just remembering a little story from back then. I bought the 12 single of the song with the money I was making as a dishwasher at my local Friendly’s restaurant.
I actually got that job by forging my paperwork. I grew up in Maryland and we had to get a work permit from our high school that outlined the maximum hours we could work and such.
Nobody in the mall would hire kids under 16, so I doctored the thing up to get the much sought after dishwasher job.
I was pulling in $3.35 an hour for that job, and I was happy and proud to do it, despite the itchy uniform.
That experience reminds me of the affiliate attitude and approach: work hard, work long, innovate, and earn what you get.
So this Christmas, I’d like to honor all of the affiliates out there that have figured out their recipe of success, and the many others striving to succeed
I’m proud to be an affiliate and wish you all a Merry Christmas today.
Now get off your computer and go back to your family.
