Just writing today about snags and friction…. Obviously when
you are working online not everything will run perfectly smooth
all the time.That applies to life in general too.
Life can be especially frustrating for new or even veteran
marketers when tech such as computers, blogs, software, hardware
and the internet are involved. Tech and computers are like
They do what they want, when they want, and only when they are
friggin’ good and ready to!
Add it the human condition of wanting every thing right now and
easy, and the inclination to toss your computer out the window
when it doesn’t do what you want when you want, and you could be
in for a heck of a frustrating day when some piece of tech throws
you a curve ball.
I ran in to a bit of a snag the other day when I was working my
Now LifeStyle Business that many have faced or
will have to deal with as an affiliate, regardless of what they
In case any of you reading here are new to all of this, let me
give you a bit of a back story…
As an affiliate for most any program, you are given a set of what
is called “affiliate tools” that you have permission to use. They
will often be banners, email ad copy, text ad copy, and social
media blurbs and links to use.
A problem often times can be that the banner ads do not have one
particular size that you want or need.
Many affiliates get frustrated and give up using banners if they
don’t have the size they need. This is a BAD idea. THIS type of
thinking is what LOSES you money!
Here in this video I give you a quick work around to fix that
banner problem in particular. Just click the video below to
The banner creator I found
to fix my problem is called “Fuglybanners(dot)com”.
not included an affiliate link here because I am not looking
to pimp my affiliate links for every little thing I use and show
I am simply looking to show you how to fix a quick snag and to
This video also shows you that you can also use this program
to make completely custom banners so that you can use something
DIFFERENT and UNIQUE for your promotional banners so that you can
stand out from your fellow affiliates that are ALL using the same
affiliate tools as you are!
Think about it…. after a while, those banners and ad copy that
the company provided you will be posted by hundreds, possibly
thousands of other affiliates just like you.
What happens then is that anyone viewing them has already seen
them, or has seen the same old banners and goes “banner blind”.
So in order to keep people interested and clicking on your links,
you must STAND OUT.
A good way to do this is to be unique and have different promo
material out there in addition to, or instead of the same ol,
same ol stuff everyone else has.
Personally I use BOTH my company’s promo tools such as done for
you lead capture pages (because theirs flippin work even after
more than a year!) and I also use a set of my own unique lead
capture pages and banners.
Hitting them from all angles is just good marketing…
If you can not find what you need, don’t throw your hands up and
FIND a work around!
YouTube and Google are your BEST friends!
You have a world of info and how to videos at your finger tips!
Just do a search on how to fix the problem you have and go from

Have a great day my friend!
