Ask Lammo: Who is your business hero?
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

I know, I know.. two posts in as many weeks – I’m turning into a prolific blogger again (don’t worry, it won’t last!). Anyway, I had a question in the Ask Lammo postbag last time that I started to answer but realised that my answer was getting rather on the large side and so perhaps was worthy of being a standalone post. The... 

Ask Lammo – Where the hell have you been?
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

That’s the most frequently asked question in my postbag at the moment (Jason even blogged about it), and as I explained as a comment to that post, I just haven’t had the desire or inclination to think of anything to blog about – At least not with any authority. I’ve had a delve into the Ask Lammo postbag, and have managed to... 

Think Vis Thanks
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

Once again in no particular order… To everyone who’s been to Think Vis before, raved about it and persuaded me that a 650 mile road trip over the course of a weekend was going to be a great idea. You weren’t wrong! To Dom and the whole Think Vis team for putting on exactly what affiliates want from a conference: Parties you can actually... 

Dear Merchants, not EVERY affiliate is trying to rip you off
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

Here’s a new one for me – a rant on someone else’s behalf (although I have had this happen to me in the past hence why it’s got my back up) I spotted the following tweet from fellow affiliate Purple on Friday: Now, it’s perfectly acceptable for a merchant to ask an affiliate where they are being promoted (although IMO... 

Ask Lammo: No, I’m not a millionaire and no, I can’t fit your skirting boards
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

Time for another dip into the Ask Lammo postbag… Can you recommend the program affiliate site quick? No, I can’t. I don’t recommend ANY Affiliate Marketing program – You can’t learn AM from any handbooks or guides – it’s not something that has a step-by-step process. You need to dig in, get your hands dirty,... 

Merry Christmas Affiliate Land – you’re getting bugger all this year
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

Don’t think this is a Scrooge/Grinch type post – I love Christmas, I love opening presents and I love giving presents to others. Every year though, I start to receive gifts and cards through the post from various companies and individuals in Affiliate Land – Now don’t get me wrong.. it’s very nice to receive these gifts,...

The Esporta Affiliate Program is available on Affiliate Window and pays commissions of £2.50 for every valid lead.

The Esporta Group operates 55 health and leisure clubs in the UK and Ireland providing market-leading... 

Affiliate Networks: It’ll all end in tiers
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

A huge proportion of my working day is spent helping newbies out, answering questions about Affiliate Marketing in general, as well as SEO, web design, marketing, PPC, and all those other things that I used to know nothing about. I’ll be honest with you – sometimes it’s frustrating answering “what niche should I work in?”... 

Ask Lammo: Chickens, Eggs, Puppies and Slapping
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

Time for another dip into the Ask Lammo postbag.. have i lost my northern rock shares? Yup, I’m afraid so. All NR shares are now publicly owned. I did warn readers at the time that it wasn’t looking too rosy! What do you think the top xmas toy sold thru ECU will be? We recently released our “Top 12 Toys” unit, which automatically... 

Muppet of the week: Hotels.co.uk
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

Been a while since I handed out one of these awards. These guys are more than deserving though, having pissed me off as BOTH a customer and an Affiliate! First as a customer.. I booked a “twin” hotel room through them. Which on arrival at the hotel wasn’t a twin, but a single. If I wanted a room to sleep two people, I’d have... 

Ask Lammo
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

In a blatent rip off, erm.. I mean homage to Kirsty’s “Ask Kirsty” series, I thought I’d take the time to answer some of your questions here on Lammo. Well it sure beats thinking of things to blog about! Unlike Kirsty I won’t be offering in-depth analysis of your PPC campaigns, or valuable advice on the benefits of keyword... 

NHS Dentist v Private Dentist
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

A couple of years ago I posted a rant on here about the problem Er Indoors was having finding emergency NHS dentist treatment, a problem that eventually escalated to such an extent that she was taken into A&E and admitted into Hospital before anyone would attempt a wisdom tooth extraction. Now at the time I was registered at a private practice... 

a4uexpo thanks
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

In no particular order… To Matt and the Existem/a4uexpo team – For putting on another top notch a4uexpo. I know how stressful the few days are for you guys (especially around 9am on Day 1 when the printers died just as everyone arrived en mass expecting delegate badges.. not to mention the power cut!) To ExCel itself – The new venue... 

Where did I put the Pro Plus?
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

It’s that time of year again, when affiliates arm themselves with business cards, Pro Plus and Headache pillls, dragging themselves the length of the country to London’s ExCel centre for the annual a4uexpo. It’s going to be a very different experience for me this year, not only as I’ll be attending on my own for the first time... 

Introducing Link Builder – a UK Link Building service
Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/lammo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building.php on line 101

Have I ever told you how much I HATE Link Building? OK, Maybe just once or twice. But the fact remains that it’s one of the single biggest factors that can move your website from relative obscurity (anywhere from page two onwards of Google results) to the land of untold riches (a.k.a The top of Page One), and so I persevered with my link building...
