    Exclamation phillyBurbs.com & Andy Rodriguez Consulting join forces!
    Well gang, I'm thrilled that my first announcement as General Manager at phillyBurbs is not only a major one, but involves someone well-known by the ABW family.

    It gives me great pleasure to announce that Andy and his crew will be merging with Calkins Interactive Media - parent company of phillyBurbs.com - and moving his operations to our main office near the City of Brotherly Love. A few minor details have to be ironed out, but we're excited about the opportunities afforded by this ground-breaking move.

    I'm sure Andy will post more in his forum about this, but with Andy's crew on board, we know we'll be able to make affiliate marketing a cornerstone of our revenue picture and we're projecting that will be able to increase our revenue ten-fold in the first year along. That doesn't even take into consideration the fact that our other media properties aren't engaged in AM at any level. That's a lot of untapped potential!

    Of course, Calkins will be able to offer Andy's clients and unprecedented reach that combines the power of our five daily and two weekly newspapers, as well as our television stations and even our commercial printing wing (niche magazines based on EasyClickTravel or his new wine merchant?). To use my management speak, the synergies are rife with possibilities!

    So please join me in welcoming Andy Rodriguez Consulting to the Calkins family!

    So does this mean that Andy will, in a sense, be in competition with the other affiliates in his current programs?

    Only thing worthwhile at F*ckcompany is the occasional jewel getting outed as their greed driven ebiz plan heads towards a toilet flush. Gotta love seeing "HotBar" heading for the toilet and maybe getting removed from the internet scene.... http://hotbar.com/site/hotbar/about/about.htm

    Adding Andy, known to drive merchant programs to produce sales, would be an asset to any organization. Brings in some new ethical talent, loyal following, media background and some expansion opportunities if "Burbs" wants to manage niche' merchant programs down the road. Please Karl don't turn him into an Adwhore or a roadside billboard poster boy!

    Trust nailed it....

    While we love working with Karl, we can't leave the 3 'S's' behind - Sun, Sand and Surf

    We do have 2 new merchants that have been announced ready to fly and that's no April Fools !!

    Also, look for a Affiliate Marketing seminar geared to Merchant Education announced very soon....it will be in South Florida.....no joke.

    Dammit Philly, I'm usually immune to that sort of junk.

    But I *thought* something was fishy--even THE PHILLY BORG couldn't be strong enough to assimilate anyone who's been the owner of their own place!

    Well, if it almost got you, it must have been convincing!

    I'm surprised it took folks here that long to call our bluff, but it doesn't surprise me that Trusty jumped in first.

    Trusty, if you're interested in an official phillyBurbs.com shirt, PM an address and I'll send it out. Don't worry, it's short-sleeve, so you can wear it in warm weather!

    Sam Bay - thanks for taking the bait hook, line and sinker! I'm a little disappointed that there weren't more flames before Trusty blew our cover. Maybe everyone's too sleepy on Friday.

    Thought I ruined it when no one posted after I did Packy lol
    Then Sambay stepped up to the plate

    Karl, pretty subtle and creative.
    Believable yet a little out there.
    Nicely done, did you plan this before hand or was it a spur of the moment thing?

    Popdawg: Thanks! Andy & I discussed it a few days ago. I thought it was almost believable and figured the idea of an affiliate manager working for a company that uses affiliate marketing would make some people see red ... like Sam Bay!

    OK, OK you got me. I should have thought something was up when I read the original post then saw an icon of Ashton Couture run across my screen.
    Nice job
