If you’ve read my previous post, you’ll know that I’m now one of Alex Jeffreys’ students. As part of the practical work he’s set in his coaching program, he’s set a competition for his students: whoever gets the most traffic to their blog by early next month will get as a prize, a complete professional blog created fro them (including content, plugins, graphics, etc. and the blog will be the front end to a whole marketing business. Quite a prize and one worth fighting for!

One of the terms of competing is for students to document how they are driving traffic to their blogs. So that’s what this progress report will be …

For those not in the know, ePN stands for eBay Partner Network. While eBay used to run an affiliate program through Commission Junction and Pepperjam Network, in the last year or two, those were closed down and the only way to become an eBay affiliate was to open an account with the eBay Partner Network.
