Fastlane Millionaire – BoM May 0

Fastlane Millionaire – BoM May

The Fastlane Millionaire is a self-help style book aimed at aspiring entrepreneurs. It does contain a lot of egotistical bull sh*t that you normally find in these style of books but there is also some gems of information. It is a bit like the 4 hour work week where if you can cut through the rubbish then what’s left is actually some solid advice. I would say if you have...

WhatsApp being used for spam

This is the first time I’ve seen spam on WhatsApp in the UK. I got two messages from different numbers advertising the same site. I’d imagine they are utilising free sims along with an android bot of some sort to register an account and then target known mobile numbers from a list.

The intelligent investor – April’s Book of the Month

The intelligent investor is to fund managers what cashvertising is to marketers. First published in the mid twentieth century it now comes with an updated commentary which is as good as the book itself. Graham inspired a host of famous investors including Warren Buffett and this book mirrors my own opinions about going against the trends of the stock markets. Always buy low when everyone else wants out and thinks...

The balance of an online marketers skillset 2

The balance of an online marketers skillset

Effective online marketing requires a balance of skills. A good campaign requires creativity, great design, effective programming and meticulous optimisation. Leonardo Da Vinci would have made a great affiliate. If he was around in today he’d find this easy because he had a great balance of artistic creativity and scientific inquisition. Good design is intertwined with art as engineering is with science. A successful online marketer, or team of marketers...

The 4 hour work week – March’s Book of the Month

The 4 hour work week – Timothy Ferris This was a tough one to include or not. I really can’t stand the guy or his writing style but a lot of what he says is good advice. I’ve read this and the 4 hour body and am taking a break before reading the 4 hour chef. I think if you read one of his books a year, that’s plenty 🙂...

Healthy body healthy mind – Fitness for the self-employed

I see a lot of fitness and health related post on affiliate marketing blogs, everything from how I got ripped abs in 3 weeks to why I gave up coffee for a month. These sound more like our landing page headlines than blog posts but there does seem to be a strong focus in the industry towards a healthy lifestyle. While I feel this is justified to an extent it...

The Innovators – February’s Book of the Month

The Innovators is a historical portrayal of the digital revolution. It starts at Ada Lovelace the daughter of Lord Byron who is credited with the first concept of a computer programme and goes all the way up to 2014. The book details the first computers including the one at Bletchley Park which is significant to me because it’s only half hours drive away. The birth of silicon valley and the...

Cashvertising – January’s Book of the Month 0

Cashvertising – January’s Book of the Month

Cashvertising is a classic and would be my first choice for anybody new to affiliate marketing. It was first published a hundred years ago or so by an old school print advertiser. It gives a great overview of the psychology behind marketing and copy writing. The book has become famous in internet marketing circles because to date noone has produced a better foundation for general marketing practice. It is a...

My Office 0

My Office

My office at home. Dell XPS14 Laptop, Dell UHD monitor, Madkatz strike7 gaming keyboard (never played a game on it in my life) and a Madkatz mouse. The Bakerlite phone in the background is a genuine one from the 1940’s. I’d love to rig this up to a bluetooth handset but don’t have the heart to take it apart.
