FREE TRADE PUBLICATIONS AND DOWNLOADS

If you are business professional, field expert or industry specialist and want to get free trade magazines, white papers, downloads and podcasts, check out NetLine Corporation and TradePub.com. [Hat tip to Anita Campbell of Small Business Trends.] Here is an excerpt from Anita Campbell's post, Monetize Your Website or Blog by Offering Trade Magazines:

Why I use TradePub

I’ve had a TradePub storefront for several years now. I don’t participate in many affiliate programs (even though I get 3 or 4 requests a week to do so). But this program I have found valuable and worth sticking with for almost 4 years. Here’s why:

* Your visitors get valuable B2B magazines without having to pay a dime (they will appreciate that!).
* You earn a little money every time one of your readers gets a new magazine subscription, white paper, etc. It helps subsidize the many hours you put into your blog or website. (SmallBizTrends.com, 07/13/08.)


Anita Campbell points out an interesting aspect of using this service, you could get a better picture on what your readers are interested in by checking out the online control center at RevResponse.com. By looking at the visitors' different requests for material, I will get a list of the popular items and with this information it would help it me to come up with topics to write on my blog.

Here are some examples of publications that I think look interesting to explore further:
