Affiliate Marketing Splash is a real book, full of solid advice, and no hype. A book about how to make a living dealing with the realities of Affiliate Marketing, it's...... a book of two hats
This is about the realities of Affiliate Marketing through SEO.
- Learn how to get instant traffic with the "secret sauce"
- How to rank and bank with slightly shady site building
- and how to build a white hat authority site that will carry on earning for years
If you want a long term sustainable business then you need to know about both black hat and white hat techniques. Splash shows you exactly how to make sites that take advantage of errors in the search engine algorithms for fast cash.
And it then focuses on building Authority sites that are built in a more white hat style. If you want to stay ahead in this game then you need to build a varied portfolio, and this is what you will learn by reading this book.
Written by Zen Duck Dave, this is the result of 5 years in the Affiliate Marketing game, where all you need to know is revealed. From backlink strategies to the steps taken to build an affiliate site that will carry on earning for years, no need to pick a hat, just pick a strategy and put your heart and soul into it.
This is a book about the facts when it comes to building affiliate sites, and how to rank them in the search engines. No false promises, no outrageous claims, just the real deal. An honest look at the state of the SERPS, advanced techniques both black and white, and a kick up the bum for those that need it. If you want to work in your pj's and smoke your pipe while you dominate the SERPS then you need to know exactly how this game really works.
This is the truth about what ranks, how to do it, and how to create sites you would be proud to show your Mom, as well as ones that she would spank your bottie for, if she knew what you were doing.
About the Author
Dave, aka Zen Duck Dave, author of the blog zenduck.me, born (1973-still alive) has a passion for doing anything he can to avoid working for "The Man". To this end he dedicated himself to learning how to make money online.
It all came about when his Wife had to leave him for 3 months to earn money as they were so poor. A few years later and he had found the secret...earning commissions through affiliate links placed on the Interwebs super-highway.
He realized that as he was rather articulate he could write blogs and recommend products and earn a nice living in his underwear, and he often even fails to brush his hair for days on end (it's nice and curly though). Now he spends much of his time smoking his pipe and wearing comfy slippers while being fed grapes by semi-clad women (when the Wife is out shopping).
If you want to learn how to make a living online then you really should read his publications, they are brilliant.

Learn The Truth About Making Money With Affiliate Marketing
Zen Duck Dave's newest book details everything he has learned as a successful affiliate marketer. While it's really written for those with at least some background in the subject, I see no reason why a complete beginner couldn't find it useful with the caveat that a lot of research is going to be required to understand everything Dave is talking about. Think of it as an advanced study guide.
For those with some background, Dave shares with the reader his wealth of knowledge gained through a lot (and I mean A LOT) of highly successful, and some perhaps less than successful affiliate marketing campaigns. The bottom line is that he has learned through personal experience what works and what doesn't.
At the end of the book is perhaps one of the best resource lists you will ever find to help you with your own affiliate marketing work.
If you really want to know what it takes to win at affiliate marketing, then this book will let you know just what it takes.

No nonsense guide to affiliate site success!
By Amazon Customer
I've been following Dave's stuff for years and he's one of the few who actually practices what he preaches and makes money from actual online marketing rather than just talking about it and 'teaching' others as some other so-called gurus are guilty of (of course dave would never describe himself as a guru :p)
This book doesn't hold your hand right from the start of setting your site up etc but all of that information is widely and freely available. However this doesn't mean that it's not suitable for beginners - rather I would recommend that beginners read this book when they are just starting out. Some of it may go over the top of your head at first but it will all begin to fall into place quickly and you'll be glad you had this information when you started, rather than later!
The book is divided into two sections with white hat and black hat (although i would class it as more of a charcoal grey!) approaches. There is of course a lot of overlap between the two and some discussion about where you should concentrate your efforts.
The last couple of chapters were my favourite - one thing that Dave does really well is be motivational and inspiring and the end of the book is a no-nonsense kick in the bum to remind you that if you don't actually do the work, you will get nowhere.
Highly recommended to anyone wanting to make some money online, whatever your level of experience.

Amazing Read Dave knows his stuff!
I have been looking for a more advanced book on affiliate marketing and this is it. Very well written, honest and upfront really enjoyed it. Dave walks you through both black hat seo, white hat seo and everything in between his knowledge is real world. Just the resources section in this book is worth buying such great value so glad to find this book I highly recommend reading it right away if you are serious about affiliate marketing!
