While I would normally announce something like this on Geek Dads Weekly, I just got the notification about it this morning and I want to give you guys as much time as possible to participate!

QAQN has one special Avengers Prize Pack to give to a lucky fan! Keep reading to learn how to enter – good luck! The contest runs from today, April 25th, to May 4th (Avengers movie release day!)


I was joined today by a five year veteran of affiliate marketing who has made a name for himself in the coffee niche. He’s also the founder and director of Zynali Marketing Solutions, specializing in social media. You may know him as @CoffeeNate; he is Nate Smith.


Affiliate Summit is producing a series of interviews with speakers at the upcoming conference in Austin. I spoke with Affiliate Summit Ambassador Mary Poiley for just over twelve minutes, mostly about my session, Step by Step: Podcasting for Business. We also talked a little about my overall involvement and history in the industry. It was a fun interview – hope to see you in Austin for Affiliate Summit Central 2012!


In which Daniel and Greg talk about Record Store Day 2012, how much better vinyl is than other formats (maybe), Game of Thrones, Affiliate Summits East and Central, and oh yeah, DANIEL SAW THE AVENGERS MOVIE!

If you’re a current listener, you know the kind of show we do. If you’re new around here, check out the show notes from a few recent episodes to get a feel for it. Get yourselves up to speed because we need you!

Help us rename the show! There’s $100 in it for you!

The sessions from Affiliate Summit East 2010 have just been posted to YouTube! This session was a first for me; it was my first session that had been planned and submitted ahead of time. We called it Podcasting 101 and we covered the basics of the craft. We talked about the challenges and how to build a solid show and monetize it. Fun!

Last week I created a silent auction (of a sort) to sell my unneeded Full pass to Affiliate Summit Central 2012. The event is sold out, and since I will be getting a Speaker pass (Step By Step: Podcasting for Business, Tuesday, May 15, at 9:30am is my session), I no longer needed the pass that I bought back in January. Read on to learn who won the auction and how much we donated!


In which Daniel, Drew and Greg talk about holidays, pointless movie sequels, affiliate marketing & OneLoad.com, and the recent discovery of a little-known site called eBay. You can buy stuff from them apparently.

Missy Ward, whom you probably know as a co-founder of Affiliate Summit, reached out to TubeMogul/OneLoad.com but was met with resistance to the suggestion that maybe affiliate marketing shouldn’t be included on such a list. Certainly there is nothing inherently scammy or misleading about affiliate marketing – respectable companies have been successfully recruiting affiliates to help advertise their products for the better part of 15 years.


In which Daniel, Drew and Greg consider 67 books for kids, the return of Game of Thrones, the Avengers and the lack of lottery winners among us.
