Recently I created a wordpress themes using jQuery.masonry. Masonry is a layout plugin for jQuery that make our layout very flexible between articles, and it could float horizontally and vertically. Basically, this plugin create a new #div when the site loading by generating automatically count width and height of each articles.

Masonry was created by a unique person that really love math. It is shown by his product masonry, he create new way to design a website. The name is David Desandro, from the name I guess he is an italian.

This time I won’t explain the detail of using this masonry inside you wordpress themes, but if you need the tutorial you could visit wplover.com. I think he already explained a lot and it’s easy to learnt. What I’m going to say right now is my experience using this plugin and here’s some information that you might need to have your attention.

  3. Using Image crop generator (like thimbthumb or else)

Affiliation business was first introduced by amazon.com by giving the marketing team to advertise its products. Since that time many emerging companies use this system. This is highly effective marketing techniques to increase sales because the company has thousands and even millions marketing team with minimal cost to spent because it does not paid their marketing team regularly. The company only provide incentives as a commission for their marketing team.

Here is an example that I’d like to give about the Hotel Affiliation. This is quite interesting to be discussed as they relate to business services. Usually, only Manufacturing companies typically provide this service, but if engaged in the service have a slightly different calculation. The Sales team received commission for their sales, if the business service can be done on a per leads. That means every time the customer utilizing the services of the company, the sales team will get a commission for its services already given. As an affiliate marketer, you could get more money from this model, it will produce exceptional passive income.

Suggestion for beginner Internet Marketer :

  1. Find a good and trustee Affiliate company that proven paid out their marketer by browsing forums that provide this information or googling with those keyword.
  2. Try to find pay per leads commission. Usually it pays more little than pay per sales but it’s continued payment. Every time customer bought those services you will earn commission from it.
  3. Start now and get ready to be a great internet marketer.
