Why do I have to sign an NDA and release?

Why do I have to sign an NDA and release to attend a NAMS workshop? Newcomers who walk into the Niche Affiliate Marketing System workshop are often surprised that they must sign a Non-Disclosure form (NDA) that includes a release to use your picture, testimonial and audio comments. The release part of the document isn't the part that scares people. It's the non-disclosure paragraph that gives people pause. "I also agree that I may be hearing …

What should you bring to NAMS?

Tomorrow, I start packing the stuff I have to bring to the Niche Affiliate Marketing System Workshop. I travel a bunch, so I'm pretty good at packing. I never check bags. Even when I fly cross country for a 12-day stay, I've got everything I need in my one little carry-on bag. But this time, I'm loading up a U-Haul trailer and lugging that bad boy the four-hour drive to Atlanta on Wednesday. Some of my items include: 100 AA Batteries - …

"I'm feeling overwhelmed…"

I received a note from one of the forum moderators yesterday telling me that there is a consistent theme brewing among the people joining the NAMS workshop for the first time: "I'm feeling overwhelmed already." That's the short version. The feeling is completely normal, but also unnecessary. The number one NAMS Workshop rule is: Don't Worry! And have fun! That's my job...and I do it really well. You should see my to-do list for the final 5 …

What’s your big goal?

What's your big goal? Yesterday, in the article about finding your niche, we talked about fun ways of combining your passion with your expertise. It was fun.

Are you a social marketer or a social butterfly?

Are you a social marketer or a social butterfly? Yesterday's blog post about Twubs was quite a hit. Twubs was so easy to set up that it appeared like I might be a really good social marketer. Truthfully, I'm not a great social marketer. I'm more the social butterfly type - you know, flitting from site-to-site with little focus and less of a plan. But, Jeff Herring and Maritza Parra? There's a couple of social marketing geniuses. Maritza came …

What the heck is a twub?

What the heck is a twub? Look to your right. Introducing twubs - ta-da! This is one of my favorite new twitter tools. Someone is finally organizing hashtags on twitter and doing something very powerful with them. And it's so simple. Twitter provides an RSS feed for any hashtag that you search. For example, here's the hashtag RSS feed for #NAMS. Pretty ugly, huh? But the smart folks at twubs have taken that feed and built a social site around …

Kathleen Gage-Business strategist to the spiritually aware

Get to know Kathleen Gage Business strategist to the spiritually aware I love the Niche Affiliate Marketing System for several reasons, but one of the main rewards is that I get to meet incredible people. Really, it's more than that. I get to spend quality time with them. For example, I've known Kathleen Gage less than a year now. I went to Willie Crawford's 50th birthday bash last year (young whipper-snapper that he is) because I wanted to …
