Amazon Associates: How Does It Work?

Affiliate links are nothing new, but perhaps (like many people), you’ve only heard the term – and never explored it for yourself. The concept is pretty simple: through the Amazon Associates program, users can use special links in their blog and social media content… And when someone clicks through and makes a qualifying purchase, that user receives a commission.

Ghostwriting is Good – Editing is Better

I am not a mindreader, but I am a ghostwriter. I don’t know all there is to know, but I do like collaborating with clients to present our combined wisdom. As much as I would like to know everything about everything, to understand an expert view on topics and industries the world over… That simply isn’t the case.
