Shopping? Click It And Forget It!

Remember back a long time ago (about a week or so) when I presented a lesson on affiliate marketing and how to make money being an affiliate? Go ahead and take out your notes on All Things Pangie for a refresher. It’s probably in the folder called, “Non Existent.”

Since publishing that lesson, I’ve come to realize that there’s basically a Black Hole Of The Unknown about affiliate marketing. I did some research (see: I Googled “how many websites use affiliate marketing”) and found out there’s an unknown number of websites and blogs that use affiliate links as a way to make money. In my extremely un-scientific guesstimation, I’d say at least 90% of people who use the internet have no idea what affiliate links are and how they can help out the little people of the internet.

I am a Little Person Of The Internet (not of stature, but of small web traffic). Affiliate links help me. I make a few pennies off of those links you click when you go to a website and then buy something, and you probably don’t even know it.

It costs you nothing. Not one single penny.

Unless of course you’re an Economics professor and can calculate the cost-per-product of the percentage all of the goods sold by a store then measure that against the marketing budget of a company. But I would have to best that exactly zero Economics professors read my piddly blog.

Point being: If you’re going to shop at these stores anyway, why not make sure people like me get a little kickback?

Click It…And Forget It!

Affiliate links are basically the Ronco Rotisserie Oven of the internet.

When you know you’re going to shop at Amazon, click my link to go to, then forget it!

In the market for some new shoes or new clothes from Zappos? Click my link to go to, then forget it!

Want an American-made, dishwasher-safe, guaranteed-for-life, customized cup from Tervis? Click to Shop, then forget it!

Earn Big Pennies

When you click on one of these links to shop these stores, I can earn some pennies. It doesn’t cost you a thing.

And you’ll be forever knitted into the fabric of my heart.

I always try and click the occasional Google add or affiliate link. I think a lot of bloggers do, but its the readers without blogs that tend to miss that.

Google AdSense can die in a fire.

…I had a bad experience with them…
I should make it a whole post in itself.

You’re a Zappos affiliate! Awesome! I need shoes anyway. Two questions:
1 – If I use your affiliate link to buy shoes, do I have to clear my cookies so that your affiliate link works?
2 – Does your Zappos link work with Zappos VIP?

1 – I don’t think so.

2 – I have no idea.

Next time you go to buy something, click my Zappos banner, let me know, and I’ll let you know if it worked. YOU ROCK.

I tend not to leave a response, however after looking at a few of the comments on Shopping? Click It And Forget It! | A Whole Lot of Nothing • Your Favorite Blog.
I do have a few questions for you if it’s okay. Is it simply me or do a few of these responses look like they are left by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on other sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Would you post a list of all of all your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
