    Hey everybody, I have a strange problem. Not many people in my country know what affiliate marketing really is. When I say "I do affiliate marketing", there will be a few blank stares. I spend the next twenty minutes explaining what I really do for a living.

    A real pain

    Now I plan to get myself a visiting card (business card). What should my business card say?

    How about -

    Internet Marketing Specialist?
    Independent Internet Sales Executive?

    Any other suggestions?

    Whatever it is, it should be self-explanatory. I am tired of explaining what I do. I bet half of them think I am unemployed

    You can use:
    Internet Consultant
    Marketing Consultant
    Internet Marketing Consultant

    or to be more prouder:
    Business owner
    CEO
    Founder

    Note:
    You have that next 20 minutes to sell about what you do and thus may be they will have business/partnership with you....

    Regards,

    I call myself "publisher".

    There's usually a box for it on forms, it sounds boring enough that people don't ask questions, and it's true.

    Are you Crazy?

    What I say depends on who's asking. For the general public, it's Internet Advertising. It's not only impressive, it's accurate. An ad agency determines what to advertise, how to push it, and where to get the ads seen. So do I. Hence, I'm the Owner of an Advertising Agency. That's what I put on the tax forms, too.

    But if I'm going to BUY something, then I say "Sales" because when people around here hear the word "Internet" they still think of Porsches and millions, despite the dot-bomb crash. And letting someone who's trying to sell me something think of *that* rich stuff, causes the price of things to mysteriously go up... But if I say Sales they think of spikey income, which may or may not be high.

    Oh.. Taxes.. Tax people.. There are generally dumber than my friends. I bet I will have to spend more than 20 minutes explaining what I do to these people.

    Money Guru eh?

    I think I will settle for Internet Advertising &lt;something&gt;. I am not a "consultant".

    When I do decide on my title and get the card done, I will show it to ye all

    Tellthem that you HAVE FUN 24 x 7 and get paid in US Dollars!

    Most of my best sub-dealers are from overseas.

    DOLLAR DUDE...

    Yep.. Got it.. That's my title

    But USD is weakening against our local currency, probably because of war fears. And that's bad news for me.

    I always use website developer and Internet Advertising. Still, most people are clueless.

    It's more fun to jump on the trampoline than sit underneath it!

    I don't have anything printed on my card

    Just my name, the name of my co. , email ID, Website URL, and office Address.

    I don't have to tell others what I am doing unless they ask, If they do ask, I promote brands on the internet and help them with increasing their sales

    I'll say:
    "I own an online store for almost anything and open 24/7 a day. Here is my card and don't forget to shop on my online store if you need anything."

    Merchants: Do you realize that some of your affiliates are being paid commission on sales which you have paid for via PPC, offline advertising, and your targeted mailings?
