5 Best Podcasts and Video Blogs for Affiliate Marketing
I had a lot of freedom to listen to podcasts in the office because I was a bag designer and spent a lot of time drawing bags, researching bag trends and putting together presentations for our licensing partners.
Listening to entrepreneurial podcasts probably put the affiliate marketing bug in my ear that won’t crawl out!
If you are new to affiliate marketing or making money online, there are a few people you should be listening to regularly.
Here is a short list of podcasters and video bloggers you should listen to weekly:
Publishing a book is like anything else you do for the first time — tough at the beginning, easier as you gain mastery. Jeff sums it up as, “The sort of difficulty which brings freedom with it.”

And the objective of my podcast, The Tim Ferriss Show then became to allow people to be a fly on the wall for those conversations but also to dissect how they became and how they are the best at what they do. So it’s applying the 80-20 principle to their skillset whether they’re a chess prodigy like Josh Waitzkin who was the basis for Searching for Bobby Fischer, who was my second interview or say, Jason Silva, who is a filmmaker or a hedge fund manager or whatever it might.
When we compare ourselves to other people our work gets worse not better.
And yet it’s a totally human experience: “they have people buying, listening, reading, clicking their stuff, why don’t I have that?”
People often ask me if blogging is too ‘old’ to make money from if you are just starting out today, and has it been replaced by social media or podcasting, or youtube …etc.
My response to that question is to point out that the medium of blogging (and thus writing) is still incredibly effective, and it hasn’t been replaced by any of these new platforms. In fact all the new platforms ADD to the equation, giving you so many incredible options to build your audience.

This experience was what Autumn describes in her book as a “Nudge”. A “Nudge”, Autumn describes as something that won’t go away, something that you cannot ignore and burns deep inside of you and keeps you always thinking about it.
Last week I was in the Summit, New Jersey, area going to dinner with friends at a BYOB restaurant and needed to pick up a bottle of Pino Grigio.
I’ve been to this wine store near Summit before, but that was prior to me knowing who Gary Vaynerchuk is.
Now that I’m a huge fan, I felt like I was entering the inner sanctum.
It reminded me of being a kid and milling about in the hallway waiting for the moment when, as a family, we would walk between the heavy, oak doors that separated the parishioners from the required hush and humility of the sanctuary.
Ok, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the idea.
2 years ago, I had no idea who Gary Vaynerchuk when I first went to The Wine Library.
This time everything was different.
When you walk into The Wine Library it actually resembles a real library… dark wood, aisles of wine bottles for sale in bookshelf type merchandising… and of course Gary V. was on the tv.
This store is evidence of his hard work and commitment to his family’s business and growing his social media outreach via Youtube and marketing.
If you don’t know anything about Gary Vaynerchuk yet, I recommend getting to know him. Not only does he make incredible videos, he has a few books that have inspired countless thousands of people around the world. Check out Jab, Jab, Jab Right Hook – to learn how to apply Gary’s social media strategies that took his parents wine store from nominal to a multi-million dollar business in a few short years.
He’s brash, but he has some great advice about marketing yourself and positioning yourself for success.
