Payday Loan Blog - 29 Books Affiliate Marketers Need to Succeed

 Tuesday, 20 February 2007

JonK was going to do a post about some of the books on his desk a while back, but he is caught up in the middle of a couple projects and is going on a ski trip this weekend, so I thought I'd be nice to steal his idea help him out. The idea is, what do you read to help you become successful? Well, that list is exhaustive, for a few different reasons 1) a some of us here read a LOT and 2) I have a bad little habit of dropping books on people's desks and implying that reading that book will make them better at what they do.

To keep things relatively short and sweet, I decided to just take down the books from the desks of the three people blogging on the Affiliate Blog, versus trying to poll the entire office. In is interesting, to me at least, the types of material found. If what we read is the reason we're successful, then the aspiring affiliate marketer might want to develop competence in coding, graphic design/art theory, and a host of whatever miscellaneous marketing and random science / software topics that I find myself reading. Keep in mind, this is just what is on our desk, as of right now. If people want more, we can try and put together something that aggregates every design book we ever liked, every coding book we ever liked, every sales/marketing/leadership/management/how not to be abducted by hitchhiking aliens/etc book we ever liked.

Don't worry, I didn't use affiliate links, and yes my office is pretty messy.
