Why Affiliate Marketing Is Freakin’ Sweet!

Imagine the scenario 10 or 20 years from now! I’m having a reflective moment and wondering what’s been the highlight of my affiliate marketing career (hopefully by then retired and looking after ducks and chickens)! Could it be the money? The success of Loquax and the many users we’ve helped win cool prizes? Or perhaps it might be working in an exciting industry with a bunch of lovely (well mostly lovely) people?

Nope, it’s none of them … it’s meeting Matt Le Tissier at A4UExpo! (*)

As a lifelong (and currently suffering in agony) Southampton supporter I’d like to thank Sky and Stream 20 for providing the VIP room at A4UExpo. I know some people thought it segregated the event, and under any other circumstance I’d agree – but Le Tiss is Le God so on this occasion I’ll make an exception!

I’ve never been into hero worship, but players like Le Tissier are rare. At times he basically was the main reason behind Saints staying up or going down. His talent was underused by England, but he stayed loyal to Southampton and his passion for the club still remains.

So having the chance to meet him was a bit special!

If a cat that has got the cream is happy, then I was happier than a cat who’d got the cream and decided they liked it so much they’d buy the company before partying with a bunch of sexy ladies who love cats and cream!

Matt Le Tiss

Ah yes, sometimes this affiliate marketing milarky can be, in the words of Peter Griffin, freakin’ sweet!

    Nice one! One of my favourites of all time.

    You could also argue that the “click to reveal” website owners we’ve been discussing so much lately could do far worse than apply the loyalty and ethics he showed by staying at Southampton and turning down the potential for much higher salaries throughout his career!

    Oooh the joys of Affiliate Marketing. Life is lot more interesting that SEO, CPA, CPC and ROI. Remember me… black guy… glasses… took picture with Kamara… any chance you could email it to me? Dreaming of my reflective moment 20 years from now!

    Hi Matthew… I emailed your pic over last friday.

    Have just sent it again though.

    If you don’t get it this time – let me know!

    I like the pic! Agree that Le Tiss was somebody truly amazing. What I liked most about him was he was so genuinely humble and down-to-earth at the event. So many of this footballers have their heads in the sky. Le Tissier was better than all these pre-Madonnas and, as commented above, his loyalty to the Saints distinguishes him from so many footballers (and dare I say it affiliate marketers) who just chase $$$$s.

    Indeed he is or rather was a great footballer and should have played more for England.

    Anyway, as a Saints fan are you visiting us Swans at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon?

    If you are then do you want to have a beer, discuss voucher code sites (as I run one) and then watch your team lose πŸ˜‰

    Only kidding – may the best team on the day win πŸ™‚

    Hi MOS – I’ll not be at The Liberty – unfortunately/fortunately I’ll be out of town for the day (I live in Swansea!) – sounds awful (but shows how far Saints have fallen) but I’d be happy with a point on Saturday. Swansea have had a good start!

    Sorry for hogging him Jason…

    Jason’s “Man Crush”? Who was that radio sports presenter that got sacked for calling Matt Le Tissier the perpertual “Lazy B**tard” on air? There was no doubting his skill & talent but perhaps was a little lethargic sometimes.

    It was great to meet Le Tiss in your company Jason – I enjoyed your child-like innocent reaction to being in the presence of a legend – which he was, a genuinely nice bloke who was easy to chat with too. Happy Days – Has Matt posted the pics of Me, You and Le Tiss anywhere?
