    Heard an interesting piece of "inside gossip" today from a friend who works for confused . com (a UK price comparison website).

    They have a closed affiliate scheme - so they only take huge legit traffic sources. And there top affiliate is the well known UK site - Money saving expert . com

    Last year moneysavingexpert was paid £1,000,000 in affiliate commissions from confused . com alone.

    A lof of people in the UK will have heard of the guy who started the site - Martin Lewis, he a well known journalist now but he started the site in 03 for £100. The site runs a weekly email newsletter that is somewhat viral as it does contain some cracking deals in. If hes getting 1 mill from confused . com then he will be getting the same from the other 2-3 major comparison sites, on top of virtually every other major finance company and retailer. The site must be pulling in at least £5 million revenue a year and it only employs 25 people.

    Just thought i'd share this with BHW as I find it quite inspirational. Never give up! The internet is still in its infancy and there will be thousands of other success stories like this in our lifetimes, just let one of them be you :D
