I totally understand your sentiments and wasn't being critical at all. Actually, I like your approach to prioritizing online and offline activities.
I understand your point, though I'm not sure how it relates to my last point. I was discussing the internet giving us the ability to connect directly with people, giving us the opportunity to make money directly, instead of going through institutions such as banks and ad agencies.
I have a google voice number as well, but my wife didn't like it and wanted a separate line for the house. Ooma works perfectly for that even though we had to buy the box up front. I think many companies are starting to realize that they can give away things for free if they have a great service. If people like their service, they'd be happy to pay to continue on or even donate some money to keep the service in operation.
This is a problem I haven't heard of before. You may want to check to make sure that you put your unique key number in your api link. That would be the first thing to check as from your description, I suspect that your clicks are not getting attributed correctly to you. While I did describe how you can send affiliate links from linkshare to twitter and I do use it with my niche twitter accounts, it really only generates a very small amount of income for me. Twitter really isn't the best way to try and sell affiliate products. It works much better for me to make money sending out adfly links as I get paid per click there. I would say that I get about 5 sales in 1000 from my affiliate links through twitter.
To make real money through affiliate marketing, you'll have much more success running a blog and actively writing about the product.
Thank you for your comment. I'm glad that you found this post useful. Have a great day!
If you want an actual hard copy of the book, you can find it on Amazon. The paperback version goes for 9.99 over there.
