I have talked about Randy Smith before on my blog; he is one of the genuine internet marketers out there who really wants to help people be successful too.
His blog, Randy's Ramblings (http://randolfsmith.com) is a mix of personal and business and is always entertaining, contains helpful business ideas and links to freebies to help beginners as well as those further along.
Of the many very useful freebies, the one that wins hands down for me is the IMA Link Cloaker as it has been a great time-saver for me.
After setting it up on it's own domain, I now have all my affiliate link details and cloaked links in one place instead of having to scramble through all the various blogs and sales pages where I first set them up.
Before I used the IMA link cloaker, I tried keeping a spreadsheet detailing where everything was, but some weren't recorded, some were on the list but were no longer correct & there were quite a number of duplicate cloaked domains for the same destination.
Apart from keeping track, the best management feature of the IMA link cloaker is the ability to verify the link with one click form inside the software – so much faster than having to copy and paste the cloaked link into a browser tab to check for errors or to make sure a link is not out-dated.
This might not be a useful tool for you, but it's well worth checking out Randy's blog for any of his other useful freebies if you have any interest at all in choosing internet marketing to earn a bit of extra income; you'll learn a lot and also meet some really good people in the randolfsmith.com community.
