Religion, sex and politics are the three topics that are supposed to be off-limits in business. However, I’ve seen increasing candor, for better or worse, on this trinity of topics among folks on the Interweb.
This past Christmas, I posted a review for the book, God is My CEO, and I was surprised by the number of people that touched base afterward to share their faith. Previously, I suppose they felt it was a taboo subject to commiserate on publicly.
Right around that time, I heard about a new group called Christian Affiliate Marketers. The group, formed by Wade Tonkin, is a networking community for, well, Christian Affiliate Marketers.
They hosted a successful and well-attended event on the first day of Affiliate Summit West in Las Vegas this past January, and it got me thinking about the role of faith, or a lack of it, in affiliate marketing.
So, Lisa Picarille and I invited Wade to join us on the March 28 episode of the Affiliate Thing show.
We’re also having Shmuel “Shmuly” Tennenhaus, recently nominated Most Eligible Hassidic Bachelor at Shmais.com and a former affiliate manager for Ice.com, on the show that day.
Mark your calendars and listen – feel free to call in, too, to express your comments of support or condemnation.
Maybe some of the non-believers in affiliate marketing would like to make their case.
It’s always fun to get this great, big, dysfunctional affiliate marketing family together for a good spirited debate.
