I've decided to close my ABestWeb forum and focus my resources in other areas. My Marketing Gorilla Blog has been around since 2005 and I'm seeing a huge lift in traffic from affiliates that want to learn more about how to promote the merchants we manage.
After a successful Affiliate Summit, I'm implementing some great ideas on how to recruit and educate affiliates and merchants without the financial investment in this forum. Watch for a new employee announcement on September 12!
I'm not quitting ABW. But as I explained to the iNet crew at ASE11, this is a rebuilding year for the forum. Maybe I'll revive it later on.
I've enjoyed running it for the last 2 years and I'm happy to have built great relationships with affiliates along the way.
