Shareasale Star Thingy Vs. MacGyver? No Contest!

As Shawn mentions, Shareasale is running a contest where they try to get their affiliates and merchants to submit videos explaining the purpose of their “ShareASale Star Thingys”. Those “thingys” are yellow spongey stars that they gave out at the last Affiliate Summit event. Great idea Brian and company.

So I had to participate in my own way. But this is NOT my entry, rather, an introduction to my entry.

Or view it at Youtube direct.

Here’s the SAS entry video.

Here’s Shawn’s video entry.

ZEfrank’s Last ‘The Show’ Today

I gotta tell you, I’m a bit weepy after watching his last show today. Why? Well, I’m a sucker for sappy music and slow-motion montages, plus, you know, ZE is THAT good. It sucks this run is over.

You can watch ZE’s first show one year ago here. My only solace is that I can be sure of meeting ZE in person and seeing him speak at the Affiliate Summit this summer in Miami. Bring it ZE, I know you will.

Thanks for the content and follow through, you have no idea how much what you have done has inspired me, on multiple levels.

Oh yeah, Happy St. Patrick’s day to everyone.

Want To Monetize Your Blog? Start Thinking About “Fun”

Recently I launched a little thing called Kukral’s Top Bananas. Anyone can buy the top banana spot for $10.00, and upload a graphic and get a link.

I can hear you now saying, “Jim, are you nuts? What is this top banana stuff?”. Look, it’s all about having some fun and testing new ideas and finding new and creative ways to monetize blogs and get publicity and all that cool stuff.

But mostly, it’s just about having some fun. If it was about money, I’d charge way more than $10 measly bucks to become the Kukral top banana of the moment.

Our first top banana is listed below, or can be seen here. Thanks for participating.

Small Business Ideas Forum – Small business people come to share their knowledge, find help and encourage one another. A friendly place to discuss small business marketing, finance, employees, books, taxes, tech, you name it.

Do you concentrate on “fun”? Have a look at ZEfrank’s home page. See all the fun? He built his brand on it, in fact, his very first step to stardom was a fun little thing that showed him dancing like a moron.

People love fun. That’s one of the primary reasons people come to the Internet.

When was the last time you thought about doing something fun? Maybe it’s time?

Have you experimented with fun? Go ahead, share some examples of what you might have done here in the comments. I’d love to hear about it.

Affiliate Marketing Friends Have Helped Raise Over $500 So Far

We’ve passed the $500 mark of donations raised for charity over at AffiliateMarketingFriends.com. I wanted to thank all of those who have participated so far. The page is starting to fill up and it looks great!

There’s still plenty of time to get in and get your spot. Some banner spots up top available as well, very cheap.

Update: I’ve decided that the money should go to an organization in my hometown that is doing some AMAZING things. This page should say it all. These are amazing people who have been through a parent’s worst nightmare, and now they use what they’ve learned to help others.

The Big Brown Box Project Is Coming

Awesome Dave and I have been secretly plotting out our next project, one that we hope will top the Awesome Million. It’s called BigBrownBox.com, and it’s almost ready to go live.

We have one problem. We can’t find a box.

We’re looking for a box about the size of dishwasher. So I went to Sears and asked for a box, but they said they immediately cut the boxes down, so no luck, and I’m not buying a dishwasher just to get the box. Then I went to the UPS store, and they don’t have a box that big. So I started driving behind strip malls on my way home from work looking for boxes.

Any ideas on where to look for a box of that size?
