honestly, when the analogy of practicing fishing in an emty pond was made. i sort of cracked up. any fishing analogy is the way to portray something to me thats for sure. i would like to say though. mfishy the way that you speak about your business reminds me much of myself in speaking of my business to people that don't knwo much about it. its sort of hard to completely understand how to learn to play guitar without actually putting your hands on one. or as many tutorials/books/forum threads you read/watch. there is no subsitute for putting your self on the road for the first time and driving. i've started several businesses and learned most all trades in the construction industry here in florida. and i only learned these things by going out on my own and #*$!ing up a couple times! or joining a crew of people doing it and taking note of there efficent work protocals. I am adding a affiliate program to one of my sites and i'm really wondering wht kinda of people are going to be attracted to it. in one sense i think hosting my own sort of brokage of ads or links gives me a better control on who gets approved to use them. But at the same time it doens't enable me to get the exposure that alot of the larger ad brokerage companies get. i really am excited to get into this . i've been in the horticultural industry in florida and it relates to real estate and lets just say its not going good. if any one has any experience in hosting there own affliate marketing program for there sites let me know!
