    Really great post! One thing to consider when looking to maximise affiliate revenue is geo-targeting your affiliate links. Remember that if your book is being sold in more than one of the ten Country specific stores, you can join each separate affiliate program and geo-target your links so that you always send your traffic to their local store and via the correct affiliate program. This way not only are they more likely to purchase but you will always receive your commission on the sale.
