Author Information

Anthony Borelli made the move from corporate employee to self-employed affiliate marketer in late 2004. He joined several companies' affiliate programs and immediately began paying for and placing ads on their behalf with Google and other well-traveled search engines. In only his first full year of business (2005), he made over a million dollars on Google as a search marketer and affiliate advertiser, and repeated this performance in 2006. Borelli has acquired vast experience in composing ads, evaluating results, and maximizing profits, and is eager to lead other entrepreneurs to the same kind of success.

Greg Holden is the author of more than thirty books on computers and the Internet. Virtually all of his books provide both entrepreneurs and small businesses, respectively, with the knowledge and tools they need to expand their operations to include the Internet. Some recent titles that Holden has been a part of include eBay PowerUser's Bible and Starting an Online Business for Dummies, both published by Wiley.
