Busy Busy Ian, Taking a Break Soon

By Ian Fernando

So lately I have been super busy with certain things, that I haven't been able to catch up on running some new campaigns. But the internet makes me very busy and I think I am starting to have ADD. I start something half way through I want to start something else, there has to be a better way.

But I wanted to give you guys an update on the things I am up to. I have been working on several new projects and partnered up with a couple people as well. You may have noticed that I recently released a new site, TwitterBanking.com. The reason I did this was because I posted about a similar method a while ago and I was getting crazy emails about this method.

Twitter banking

So I decided to create a 20+ page ebook on it. For the past 3 days it has done crazy good! I was able to make money from twitter and create a social viral affect for this report. This was a quick fix to all those emails I was receiving.
Affiliate Tools via WordPress Coming Soon

I recently partnered up with a buddy I met at Affiliate Summit and we are coming up with tools to help affiliates via WordPress. Twitterbanking.com is on the WP CMS platform and it has done great for me. I am able to create a squeeze page and use the power of WordPress backed to help optimize my site even more.

With wordpress being a powerful asset to the online world, I am able to do quick testing with the WordPress backend for some affiliate stuff I am running so some set of new affiliate tools are on its way.

Huge Network Project

I also have been working on a huge network project which entails the members of some affiliate networks to help with it as well. I have demoed the new web service at Affiliate Summit and got great feedback from the networks. There were some road blocks ahead, like issues with API and programming issues, but that is what entrepreneurs go through we just drive around it.

AFFpinions.com New Design Coming Soon

AFFpinions.com has been growing strong and already received a PR 2! ...pats myself on back..

But with networks requests and user requests, I have put it through a new redesign and awaiting for some finalized plugins on the site. I am also currently looking for sponsors on the website, if you are interested please contact me. The site should is basically ready to go but want it all setup right with the plugins and necessary fixes.

Couple Video Interviews

If you have not seen already, I have been interviewed by Wes Mahler of TV202 or better know as tracking202.com. The interview consisted of me me and Ad Hustler discussing the benefits of affiliate partnerships. You can view the video here.

I was also interviewed by Share Results while at Affiliate Summit West, we discussed the industry and where our industry is going. You can view that interview here as well.

Working on an Offline Business

I got a call today, if I wanted to do this offline to online business model. In reality its bringing people from an offline world to online, which I think 90% of the world is? But this is geared toward companies and small business. I would talk about affiliate marketing, social marketing, and online marketing in general. I am still thinking about it but it can be a good thing to do maybe? Still trying to get a better understand of his business model.

This will be some sort of a classroom type, but since I always turn away consultation services. I do not think this maybe for me. Still up in the air about it.

Leaving for Vacation

This Friday, I will be leaving for vacation. I will be heading overseas to Morocco for a couple weeks. I need a break from the marketing side and enjoy life for a bit. I will be posting some images via my blog, so you can look out for that. But before I leave I have to make sure some things are in tact.

...and more to come for 2009!
