AAA-Software E-zine #13
AAA-SOFTWARE E-ZINE #13, May 2000
----- Editor's note -----
Welcome to all our new readers. There have been a lot of
new subscriptions because http://www.theweirdsite.com
made it last Monday as: http://www.coolsiteoftheday.com
You know that I have 2 E-zines (Weird Side, and this one)
that sponsor each other... so that explains it :-)
Hey, I know some of you have a web site or an E-zine, so
here's a great tip that will save you lots of money when it
comes down to place an ad for your publication!
"How to get a discount when advertising?"
It's easy! First you have to join ClickBank. Cickbank is a
company that lets you accept credit card payments from
your web site. They send you a check when someone
purchases a product (this can be an ad, or an e-book)
from your site.
Click here to sign up first, and then come back:
Then you go searching for participating ezines who accept
advertising at the market place. There you will find all the
companies who have their payment system at Clickbank:
If you see an E-zine or another online service you're interested
in, use your own affiliate link to purchase, and you will get your
Clickbank commission; saving you lots of money! That's all!
Enjoy your software!
