Affiliate ABCs and Merchant ABCs were born out of a need expressed by affiliates, managers and merchants that I have talked to over the past several years. One affiliate manager that I had just finished a nice dinner with, while discussing all things affiliate related said to me “you need to write a book or something”. Well, I am not going to write a book, because as soon as it would be published it would be out of date 🙂
So instead, the idea of a podcast was born, and around the same time that Vinny O’Hare and I started talking about doing a podcast, Geekcast.fm put out a call for internet geeky kinds of podcasts. So there ya go. They are graciously hosting our podcasts and please do go check out the other great shows they have for you to listen to.
Affiliate ABCs – Hosts Deborah Carney and Vinny O’Hare
Affiliate ABCs to date has been kindof hit and miss, with a variety of topics, some with multiple episodes in “ABC” order and others just informational. We are going to start getting them “more organized” and include some “DEF” and “XYZ” podcasts as well – meaning more advanced information. We love having guests and have a variety of viewpoints that are included so you aren’t just listening to what one person has to say.
Merchant ABCs – Hosts Deborah Carney, Vinny O’Hare, Amy Ely,and Kim Salvino
Merchant ABCs podcasts and articles, are more organized right from the beginning. Not to say that something might not slip in out of order, because in Affiliate Marketing, everything is in flux. We have a variety of expert guests including affiliates Eric Nagel and James Martell. This site is a bit different because it will have paid training in addition to the free podcasts that will help merchants make decisions that will help them start their affiliate programs on the right foot and save them money in the long run.

BookGoodies.com – Hosts Deborah Carney and Karen Garcia
BookGoodies features interviews with authors, service providers for authors, and book bloggers about what they do and how. Since book publishing is in a huge transitional period we want to help people keep on top of changes and hear from people that are on the cutting edge or who have stood the test of time. Podcasts will be cross posted to Blogging ABCs and here at ABCsPlus, in addition to a few other sites. As with all our podcasts, we don’t want to keep this info to ourselves, but want to share it with those that can use it. It is also a place for authors to list their books and bloggers to list their blogs.
Music Marketing ABCs – Hosts Deborah Carney, Billy Kay
Indy musicians are not by nature necessarily good marketers, so experienced musician and marketer Billy Kay has teamed up with Deborah Carney to create a podcast and site that will help musicians get their music out there in social media and in a variety of other ways. We will also have a line up of guests that will share their experiences and successes (or failures so you don’t repeat them 🙂 ). This podcast is just getting underway so stop over to the site and drop us questions or offer to be a guest.
FeedFront Magazine has become a great venue for affiliate information that we have been contributing too also. Articles are reprinted here after they have appeared in print in FeedFront. Plus some of Deborah’s articles are included in the book created from the first year of FeedFront articles Internet Marketing From The Real Experts by The Gang of 88, Shawn Collins and Missy Ward
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to leave us comments or send us messages via twitter or email to let us know topics you would like covered or if you would like to be a guest. Our podcasts are more of a discussion format and not so much an interview format. You’ll see as the site and the series grow.
