I logged into IM Report Card today and noticed that the Affiliate Power Group (where I coach) is the top rated site of the week – woo hoo :-)

If you’ve not used IM Report Card before it’s a pretty cool site. They have over 3800 reviews of different internet marketing sites, products, services, business opportunities, people and so on.

Whenever you use an affiliate link in an email to your list, on your website, or in a blog post, it is best not to use the affiliate link in its raw form. For example, here is my affiliate link for Ebay:

http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=1&pub=5574658925&toolid=10001&campid=5335884210&customid=&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg
