But, don’t worry, you don’t have to “sell” for us. Rather, we will integrate a tracking link on select banners within your articles and in the sidebar of your articles so that we can track any “leads” your articles help generate. From there, it’s up to us to convert those leads to sales. And, if we do……you earn a commission!
Here are a couple of banners that we have created to promote our free and paid ebooks:

The goal of Support Marketing is to ultimately help others by directing them to your articles on SportsNetworker.com where they can find the answers to their questions.
