Another milestone: Issue No. 600 of GPWA Times
We're very pleased to announce that you are reading the 600th issue of the GPWA Times e-mail newsletter! The first issue was sent in November 2006, and today nearly 12,000 people receive it each week. When we originally began publishing the newsletter, our goal was to provide the affiliate marketing community with quality news reporting and to foster the growth of a stronger, more connected GPWA community. And when I look back at the GPWA then versus now I can say with pride, on behalf of all of us, "We've come a long way, baby!" Thank you for your continued support.
