  • Between me and my child we’ve owned more mp2 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • I’m venturing into the world of Amazon affiliate marketing but I have heard you need many sites to make a living from it as you only receive 5% from each sale, which can go up slightly if you do well. I’m trying to narrow down my first niche for this sort of site but most ‘expensive’ products have high competition judging by adwords keyword tool so still trying to find one that I feel I can profit from. –

  • Amazon gets about 40% of it’s sales from their affiliate marketing program called “Amazon Associates” and third-party sellers who sell products on Amazon. Amazon Associates receive a commission for referring customers to products sold thru Amazon. By placing links from Amazon on their websites to the products sold on Amazon. Once the customers purchases the product from that affiliate link, then the Amazon Associates get paid a percentage of the sale. Starting with 4%, then after the first 7 referrals it bumps you up to 6%. As you can see, you can start making a good income if you have a good amount of traffic on your websites.:..^:
