    AffiliateTrust.org Update...
    AffiliateTrust.org is online in it's fledgling state of development. WordPress was used as the basis to get the site online quickly. There's more configuration work to do on the forum where the campaign organizing will take place. It will be accessible shortly. Membership in most areas of the forum will be restricted to known or invited individuals and organizations and will be moderated. There will be a list of tasks where you can choose to volunteer as you wish.
    The initial thrust will be a marketing campaign geared toward merchants that informs of the hazards of signing parasiteware affiliates. From there we can branch into other projects, and the sky's the limit...

    Really looks sharp Ed. Let us know if you want some inbound links and what we can do to help. Nice theme too! Is that one you did yourself?

    Thanks John. I used a theme called AdsPress that I got at blogohblog.com. It's originally set up with AdSense ads in mind. I disabled those and changed pretty much all the color elements and background. It gave me a good basis to start from with not too much effort. I plan to eventually include sponsored ads in those AdSense locations to support the project. Needs a little more design tweaking but I figure it's presentable enough at this point.

    Hi Ed,

    Nice job on AffiliateTrust.org -

    I am in the process of composing emails to merchants discussing this issue and how my company will no longer be able to promote them while they participate with parasitic affiliates.

    We are starting out first with responses to offers from merchants as we received them. In January we will be more proactive and begin contacting all others.

    My question to you is: Can I include your site, AffiliateTrust.org, in our emails as another source of information for merchants to review?

    Thanks!

    ~ Denis

    Yes. The more the word gets out, the more impact we're likely to have.

    Thanks...

    AffiliateTrust.org is now functional to the point of being useful in developing a media blitz about parasite marketing. There's a lot more work to do on the site, but first things first!

    Thanks sC. There are a lot of tasks that require little in-depth knowledge such as CD copying/printing, address list compiling, labeling and mailing, testing, quality control, bringing the coffee...
