    Wink Calacanis gets an affiliate account at CJ
    Easily the funniest thing I have heard so far this week is that Jason Calacanis got his first affiliate account at CJ of course:

    As I said in the other (keynote) thread, he's a marketer- and real good one at that. I hear that buzzing sound, do you?

    Just a matter of time until he posts a picture of himself with a $100K CJ check

    No, didn't you hear?!? They don't do that in "the valley." I think he said he could buy a new closet in manhattan for that....

    So maybe we'll see pics on Mahalo of his new closet...courtesy of CJ.

    I am not going to waste my time using PS just to add to his hype. That is what he is hoping people do. The image in my head of him working his ass off just to get a $3.50 first sale commission is good enough. lol.

    I do agree he is good at marketing. Show up at a major industry conference...give a speech telling how others are nothing compared to you...possibly inspire some of them to leave the industry...less competition = better earning opportunity...open CJ account for use on Mahalo site.

    This guy wants us to talk about him. Good, bad, or ugly. He is the type that might go out and wreck his car just so he can get his name in the paper. When people talk, they "Google" also. Out of 100 visitors to the site, he might get 1 Mahalo fan. At this point, it is all about building traffic regardless of the means.

    He has a real "Come and help build the Utopia " mentality. Even Affiliate Summit has an opportunity to contribute toward building Mahalo. At only $5 though, I think it may sit there a while unless Shawn or Missy decides to write it. Does quality content come at a rate of $5/article? Doubtful, unless outsourced internationally where $5 equals more than a Big Mac and a Coke. Come...build my site...so you can NEVER leave...because it is perfect! Yeeehaw!!! Oh yeah, except for when you click on one of my affiliate banners... lol!!!

    And I quote from the first sentences of Mr. Calacanis' opening speech at Affiliate Summit, "Affiliate Marketing is bullshit...Thank you! hahahaha!"
    Said in jest, maybe.
    Coming back to haunt him? Priceless.

    I'm curious as to how he gets away with using the golden arches in his twitter background.

    Seems like something a "crappy affiliate" would do ;p

    Well, he's got to keep Malhallow going somehow.

    Before he starts affiliate marketing, I hope he gets around to entering my aff site that I submitted last week.

    Don't worry. He made it clear that he "ego searches" himself enough. He'll see it in his google alerts.

    It went out on Twitter so if he checks his notices he will see it.

    You nailed it. He told us he does ego searches and he likes being the bad boy that everyone talks about.

    What I want to know is how he can only pay his people a few dollars. After all, shouldn't they all be making $20 million?

    His company is spending it all on monitors: http://www.calacanis.com/2008/03/10/...-productivity/

    Have to say that I would love three monitors!

    "Does quality content come at a rate of $5/article?"

    Good deal for him, people making Adsense pages for $5 a pop. It's a one shot deal, just have to pay them once. Squidoo is a little different. They have people making Adsense pages but instead of paying them up front, they share some of the income and also let affiliates put in their own links. Both ways just getting people to creat content, make Adsense money. All it is. Because you know the internet doesn't have enough rewritten wikipedia, ehow pages etc out there.
