Just wanted to through my hat into the ring here and say it is nice to be part of this growing community. I read several posts and it sounds like there are many experts here that can help in many areas. I am an Affiliate manager currently and started in 1995 in Online Marketing. In 1999 I hooked up with a major travel portal and helped to develop their affilaite program that, when i left 5 years later, had over 38,000 affiliates. I am now at a product oriented Company managing 5 major affiliate programs with another 3 coming online before the end of the year. So I am kept busy. Again, thanks for allowing this space for an introduction and I hope to contribute positively in many discussions regarding affiliate marketing.
