    My Daughter's Question [100% Industry Related]
    No better place to post this than in the "ABestWeb Virtual Family" forum...

    My little princess was running around the house today repeating affiliate manygen [&-'fi-li-at 'ma-ni-jen], [&-'fi-li-at 'ma-ni-jen], [&-'fi-li-at 'ma-ni-jen]... And then came to me and asked: Daddy, what is [&-'fi-li-at 'ma-ni-jen]?

    I looked at her............. and didn't know how to explain it to a three-year old apart from saying that "this is what Daddy does".

    She is still waiting for a more comprehensive answer....

    That is great. lol My 4 year old calls the jacuzzi a cachuzzi. Kids just say the craziest things ever. Youshould pull out your video and get that on film so when shes 16 and you buy here a car you can say this is what daddy does did to buy you your car.

    This reminds me of when my daughter asked me what I do, and what a "Webmaster" was. Children this young can't comprehend alot of things, so it's important to make it as simple as possible so they can understand. For me, I explained my job as a Webmaster as someone who puts things on the internet and makes sure they run like it's suppose to. She understood and is happy to explain it to anyone else who asks, lol.

    For an affiliate manager, I would just say something like a person who helps other people make money on the internet. Although it's alot more than that, you want to keep it simple, otherwise she will be looking at you like you have two heads if you try to go into too much detail. Or she'll get bored and walk away after a minute or two of you trying to explain your title.

    I saw this on ABW but couldn't find it again.

    You get people you don't know to sell things they don't have to people they don't know.

    Or, you could tell her you're a professional daddy. After watching you talk about her and the pictures you have, you really are.
