Learning from Chef Gordon Ramsey – Focus on the basics first.

Coupon sites becoming increasingly important – #3 in series

Overall, I hope this series has shown that you can't outright dismiss the importance of this group of affiliates. They drive an incredibly amount of sales, many are incredibly responsive, professional and really good people. Many of them I consider close friends and leaders in this field.
