In 1994, Tobin launched a beta version of PC Flowers & Gifts on the Internet in cooperation with IBM, who owned half of Prodigy. By 1995 PC Flowers & Gifts had launched a commercial version of the website and had 2,600 affiliate marketing partners on the World Wide Web. Tobin applied for a patent on tracking and affiliate marketing on January 22, 1996, and was issued U.S. Patent number 6,141,666 on Oct 31, 2000. Tobin also received Japanese Patent number 4021941 on Oct 5, 2007, and U.S. Patent number 7,505,913 on Mar 17, 2009, for affiliate marketing and tracking. In July 1998 PC Flowers and Gifts merged with Fingerhut and Federated Department Stores.
I always add an HTML table of contents to posts to make sure they are long and structured. This has been a HUGE help for me (and my readers) and there are tons of benefits: better chance of getting “jump to links” in Google (see below), increased average time on page, decreased bounce rates, and it makes it easier for readers to navigate through your content.
When beginning your affiliate marketing career, you’ll want to cultivate an audience that has very specific interests. This allows you to tailor your affiliate campaigns to that niche, increasing the likelihood that you’ll convert. By establishing yourself as an expert in one area instead of promoting a large array of products, you’ll be able to market to the people most likely to buy the product.
Sometimes, individual entrepreneurs with great products are worth a look, although you should check them out first and do some research. Entrepreneurs or companies may run their own affiliate program and you can apply directly to them to promote their products and services. Finally, Amazon is always an option as you can be an affiliate for just about any type of physical product on their network.
The training centers on how to build a list, market the list, what affiliate offers to promote, and how to generate conversions. The real issue with the training is that some tactics are not recommended, the information isn’t really groundbreaking techniques, and there is no step by step guides so it can be hard to follow along with. Still, for beginners, there is some good information in the training materials.
According to the sales page this is a new take on affiliate marketing that will show you how to make huge commissions easily and without any experience. The problem is that this is basically a regurgitated version of some older programs that Michael created. For proper affiliate marketing you'd be far better off trying my top recommendation instead.
According to one report, total sales generated through affiliate networks in 2006 was ?2.16 billion in the UK alone.

Telephone tracking – unique telephone numbers are used per instance of a campaign. So media owner XYZ would have their own unique phone number for an offer and when this number is called any resulting "actions" are allocated to media owner XYZ. Often payouts are based on a length of call (commonly 90 seconds) – if a call goes over 90 seconds it is viewed that there is a genuine interest and a "lead" is paid for.
After that, Michael Cheney and Omar Martin offered me something they called a “Done-For-You Commissions Service,” which, according to them, was going to be a hassle-free money-making machine. But, it was also going to take $37 out of my pocket. So, I said, “No, thanks” again. Michael and Omar didn’t give up on me that easily. They offered me another thing they called a “Done-For-You Commissions Service Lite Version” for $27, which I also turned down because I couldn’t afford it.

Overall, Copy Paste Commissions is a good product with many great strategies. Even if it doesn’t contain copy paste templates, you still can copy the strategies outlined within the product and profit from them. I personally think it’s more than worth the investment. I got some great ideas from it which I’m going to integrate into my next promotions.
