The sadness of email

The sadness of email

I wonder how people on the web who make a living selling their services to others do. Do you get up like me at 6 in the morning and start sorting through the 2,000 or 3,000 emails you received after submitting your site to a search engine software program? Or they made the mistake of putting their business email address in an article they just wrote and now they have 200 miles of spam to go through.

Yes, I have made this mistake a couple of times lately, I was tired and I forgot my golden rule every time I submit an article for publication or subscribe to a mailing list, use my alternate addresses. Well, it's not all bad news. Something funny happened to me the other day. I used my Hotmail address in an article and received a message saying that such and such wanted authorization for me to add them, so I did. The next thing I did was see these two obviously drunk women on video camera telling me that they wanted some of my products but they didn't have cash and that I would be willing to trade. I asked her what assets she had and then she pulled out her breasts and said this. I said you have a beautiful product line, but I have to get my wife to approve my purchases as we have a limited budget. Well, I won't go into details anyway, but let's just say I haven't laughed that much in years.

Anyway, I am getting off topic. I promised in a previous post that I would talk about my experiences in online trading. I just received my first paycheck from an affiliate that I signed up with almost two months ago and was pleasantly surprised that it usually takes a few months for them to be paying what I consider reasonable returns. I have included some details on some of the programs that I have joined since I was an online merchant. I think at last count I had tried about 700 different ones. I put a couple of my top artists on my main merchant site and a few that don't perform as well but are worth having for free exposure to a large audience.
