Off the Record - 19th March 2010

If you didn't know (where have you been?) the Cheltenham Festival is in full swing with the Gold Cup later today. Our reporter spent a few days at the festival and was happy to report on a few matters that came to his attention.

The Affiliate Marketing Hurdle begins later, we are pleased to announce the following odds:

  • Can't beat 'em, buy 'em - 6/1 (fav)
  • Bland Bidder - 15/2
  • Mal's Back - 14/1
  • Should I (Viva)Stay or Should I Go - 50/1
  • Antarctic Sunset - 500/1

Spotted: Rob(ert) Berrisford wearing a tweed suit at the festival on Wednesday, one that he "originally bought for a fancy dress party".

Flashback: A certain Commercial Director from another super affiliate company being kidnapped and bundled onto a train from Goodwood in the wrong direction, heading to London rather than Andover.

Affiliate Kidnap!

In Other News

It seems as though fame & power has finally gone to the head of New IAB Chairman Kevin Edwards. We have it from a trustworthy source that he has taken the liberty of hogging the Digital Window chocolates without care or concern of his other 'inferior' workmates.


Heard on the Grapevine, long time Cashback Site Employee Darren Loud is leaving GreasyPalm for pastures new. Not the most vocal man within the industry but a dedicated worker for what seems like at least 7 years?!

Also, a big shout out to LockerRoom Media, after they sent through some brownies for the affiliates4u team. We don't take bribes, but we'd like you to think we do ;)


Note to Self: Remember your Affiliate Programme can pay for itself, when bumping up prices if an affiliate link is used!
