In this edition of the Affiliate Buzz, host James Martell, founder of The Internet School of Marketing, and his wife Arlene welcome special guest Tricia Wackerly, the Media Ringleader and Chief Influence Officer at She Is Media (http://sheismedia.com/), an affiliate network for women based in a scenic town just outside Denver, Colorado.
She is Media is a unique community designed to embrace women bloggers with authentic voices and influence. Women bloggers are so influential, and James praises his wife Arlene who he describes as a walking infomercial.
From Stay at Home Mom to She Is Media
Tricia had a marketing background before having children or staying home to raise them. So it was no surprise that when time came to rejoin the workforce, she returned to her roots and started her first media marketing company.
Listen to Tricia share with James and Arlene that she has always had a passion for small business, and how she used her natural abilities to make her company grow. Some of those things she feels helped include:
- her experience as a stay-at-home mom
- later experiences as a working mom
- collaborating with other female bloggers
- a natural ability to chat with other people
If You Like It, Talk About It, and Get Paid for Talking About It!
