Hey Warriors,

I just signed up with affsphere and wanted to let you know about it. Affsphere is basically a FREE article directory that lets you place affiliate links in the body and resource box of the article. There are a few other ways to earn from affsphere.

If you want, you can view the post and video on my blog at;

    The ability to make money really only comes down to how much traffic they'll get. That is likely to be very little (to each individual artile and that's the only place you as an author can make money from of course).

    Then the only other benefit has to be the backlinks like anoy other article directory. But that too is a problem. Until a couple of years ago, your backlink from the same article on multiple directories counted. So the more directories you were on (even with the same article) the better.

    Bear in mind that your link text is the same on all directories and the engines take note of that much more than ever. So they no longer pay attention to the number of sites showing your article but rather to the quality/authority of those "sites". Therefore the value of the backlinks you might get from affsphere is virtually nil.

    That is until they reach the same level of authority as ezine articles, go articles, etc. And that can be a very long time and will only happen if the owners focus on that one line of work and nothing else.

    The multilevel nature of AffSphere will persuade many marketers to go to great lengths to build their downlines and therefore build a nice list for the owners of the site.

    Like all multilevel list building programs, this is great for the person at the top of the pyramid who gets his list built for him ... not so good for everyone who build the list for him (instead of building their own list).

    I have carefully examined such schemes and seen many. Many have good intentions but they all suffer form the above problems. And with most multilevel systems you get bombarded by emails from your upline, though perhaps not with affsphere (I don't know if they allow emailing your downline or not).

    Good luck

    If you grew up and went to public school in North America, you know that the school system here is far from perfect. Kids have all different experiences, but one common thread is that everybody learns how to be an employee and not a manager. School isn’t just designed to teach you math, science and English, there are also lessons contained in the actual structure of school itself. When you hear the bell and it directs you to class, you’re learning to follow directions in a very Pavlovian fashion. You know that you can’t get caught in the hallways during class time, so you respond to the bell in order to avoid punishment. When you go into the classroom and sit in your spot in the row of desks and you know you’re not permitted to talk to other students and that the teacher has control of the class, you’re learning that your place in society is to quietly submit to authority.

    Just a quick question for you internet marketing gurus, or for those of you who have a bit of experience in marketing your own businesses. Which social media platform drives the most traffic to your website? Im obviously going to invest a bit of time and money in advertising my business through each of the main platforms, facebook, twitter, instagram etc. I was just wondering, more out of interest than anything (because as I said, I intend to utilize each platform to its max for my business) which of these social media platforms is responsible for the highest amount of visitors to your website?

    I was reflecting on some of the things I have been working on over the past few months since I have been doing IM full time and I thought it's been a massive learning curve but I am making some progress. I've done a few little things that have helped keep me focused now that I don't have the physical motivation of a boss and a workplace surrounding me to crack the whip so to speak when I get a little lost and unmotivated during my work day.

    Hey guys - I have a question that I've been thinking about a fair amount and wanted to discuss with all of you. SEO is one of the main areas of focus for internet marketing - there are a lot of people building websites and competing for search engine traffic. There is so much information out there about search engine optimization and you can virtually get lost for days trying to figure out what the best way is to promote your website or the product that you're selling through search engine rankings.
