5. In Closing
Hello and happy Thursday,
It’s hard to believe that the first quarter of 2009 is almost
over, isn’t it? But it is, as of March 1. And it’s going to be
very pivotal.

This email has been a little while in the making and you have my
apologies for the delay. Some of you may already know, but I’ve
been working on a couple different projects–the main one I
cannot speak about due to an NDA (non-disclosure agreement)–and
they’ve kept me incredibly busy.

The time I would normally spend updating and tweaking the WP
Affiliate Guide and my other web properties has been siphoned
off. So this past week, I came to a very difficult decision, one
I feel will benefit all of us in the long run.

But first…

2. Adding Affiliate Content

In the WP Affiliate Guide course, I discuss adding affiliate
content to the website and even offer up an example with
datafeeds and mention the Datafeed to RSS (DF2RSS) script.

While I was making a few updates to the DF2RSS script, it
occurred to me that I didn’t offer one for the DF2RSS
script. I figure now is as good a time as any to rectify that. :)

Currently the DF2RSS script retails for $49.95:
http://www.datafeedtorss.com/ — don’t purchase from that link if
you want the discount.

But I’m going to offer a time-limited discount for WPAG
customers. As of now, you can grab the script for only $29.95;
it’s the lowest price available and it will only be valid through
March 2.

For the discounted price, visit:

As I mentioned earlier, I made some changes to the script. Now,
you no longer need to upload your datafeed file via FTP (unless
you want to) and I’ve added an option to convert the datafeed
specifically for use with WordPress, no core file modifications
necessary. (There is a WP bug that causes errors when importing
certain valid RSS 2.0 feeds).

3. WPAG Updates

The WordPress Affiliate Guide has undergone an update. Since the
release of WordPress 2.7, many changes have been made to the
overall structure, layout, and functionality of the software. Old
and outdated information has been removed with new information
taking its place.

Also, the Simple Link Manager stand alone script and plugin have
been merged with the WP Affiliate Guide website and have been re-
branded. They are now the WPAG Link Manager script and plugin.
The plugin has already been updated to work with WP 2.7, so if
you haven’t already done so, log into your account and download
the most up-to-date version of the plugin.

Be aware, however, that this new version will work *only* with WP
2.7.x, so if you’re still running an older version of WP, keep a
back up copy of the plugin just in case.

The updated videos are currently in production and will be
brought online as of Monday March 2.

To get the updated materials, log into your account and download
it from under ‘Your Purchases’ in the admin area, and the updated
bonuses can be downloaded from the bonus area.

If you don’t remember your password, they are not kept on file,
so you will need to use the password recovery tool to have it
reset and emailed to you. Your username is your payment email
address and your email is the email address listed in your
profile (i.e. the one where you’re receiving this email).

4. A Whopping Big Decision

This decision is a bittersweet one, but I feel it’s in everyone’s
best interest. I’ve decided to put the WP Affiliate Guide website
and products up for sale.

I hope you don’t mind if I get a little personal for a moment.
Deciding to sell the WP Affiliate Guide was *very* difficult for
me. In the year that it’s been online, I’ve come to think of it
as a virtual family and now, in a sense, I’m having to say good-

Frankly, I’m going to miss you. I love WordPress, affiliate
marketing, and helping others, but this is a necessary step. My
time has been spread far too thin and I cannot give the WP
Affiliate Guide as much love and attention as I would like. (It’s
times like this that I wish I could clone myself.)

My goal with this sale is to hand the reigns over to someone who
will care about the WP Affiliate Guide family as much as I do and
who will take it to the next level.

For now, things may be a little quiet, but you don’t need to
worry. Once the sale is complete, you’ll receive another
announcement email with the details.

5. Finishing Up

Don’t forget, you can grab the DF2RSS script at the discounted
rate through this weekend:
http://www.wpaffiliateguide.com/visit/df2rss/ and you can log
into your account to download the updated WPAG materials.

Also, if you ever miss an issue of the WP Affiliate Guide
newsletter, you can read it online at the newsletter archives:
http://www.wpaffiliateguide.com/newsletters/. The current
newsletter is usually added a couple of days after being sent

Again, I want to thank you for allowing me to help you with
your WordPress and affiliate marketing journey. I sincerely
hope you put it all to good use and build a prosperous
affiliate empire.

Wishing you much success in all your endeavors.
