The Performance Marketing industry is full of a lot of crap, and worse, a lot of crap that looks like it comes from experts. Too many bloggers out there are just bloggers, no experience in the industry and spend their entire time telling people how successful they are. Still there are more than a few bloggers that actually have been a success in the business and pass bits of information about the industry to their readers and we need to pay attention to them.

Linda Buquet’s blog has been around for a while and is always full of interesting information. Her style is very personable as if she’s your best friend, and you’ll sometimes picture her sitting next to you singing songs she’s made herself.
Geno is the owner of one of the top affiliate management companies and has done a great job in getting the word out about what he does. He’s been able to convince the world that he’s the foremost expert in affiliate management, and whether that is true or not, the very fact his name keeps coming up deserves enormous respect.

Shawn has been around as long as I have, and I’m not sure how he manages to actually do an updated blog with a plethora of information that is relevant while also running Affiliate Summit and a bunch of other things. He’s always been able to identify trends and because of that, you need to pay attention to him.
