Wigwam Resort is located on the Southeast side of Lake of the Woods, which just happens to be arguably the best freshwater fishery in the world. Wigwam has been in business since 1921, our customer service and northern Minnesota hospitality are second to none, and with that rich tradition, this decision comes with ease. Whether you fish or not, you still will make the commission. We are offering 10% commission on each guest you send our way. (Example: Our most common package sold is the 3 Night 2 Day without meals, which is $325.00 per person. You would earn $32.50 on just one person...send a group of 10 and that's $325.00...you can't go wrong)

We started this concept out by offering the group organizers this deal and it has really taken off. Getting paid while you fish, what could be better than that? The answer is, not much! This is why we would like to open it to anyone that would like to participate. Chances are you know someone who loves to fish, or you know someone who knows someone who loves to fish. Whatever the case may be, the Wigwam Resort can be your place for a little extra fun or cash, however you choose to use it.

Please contact me "Jean-Paul Tessier" at (800) 448-9260 or e-mail me at jp@wigwamresortlow.com. I look forward to hearing from you and just remember to keep those lines tight!

Were thinking about bringing the Zero Degree Ice Tackle guys up this year. We havent been up there for a couple of years now. I seen you on a ice show last year with the great late Tony Dean. I also noticed you had our Zero Degree Ice Tackle Glow N Go on your dash of your Sno-Bear?

I reccomend anyone to your establishment. Great hospitality and great accommodations!

By the way, Wigwam... when searching google for Minnesota fisherman, your blog on our site is popping up #2, after the MFP home page. Congrats on that. People don't seem to realize that more content equals more exposure. Hopefully you'll get some biz out of this, eh?

The commission deal sounds a bit like affiliate marketing, the way a guy explained it to me. According to him, you can get relatively cheap software that allows you to create and distribute ad banners to anyone who wants to advertise your site, and it tracks which websites the customers come from so you can compensate them accordingly. Then you just go to every fishing site you can find and ask them to carry your banner.

I doubt the usual referral commission is 10%, but it would probably make you very popular among fishing website owners if they could just carry your banner or link to you and get that much.

OTOH, according to Wiki there seems to be a case working its way through the courts in which a company was found to be doing business in another state, and subject to that state's taxes, if they had affiliates in that state. That could be expensive. I suppose you could just use Minnesota website affiliates until the Supremes make a determination.

If my damn G5 Imac was working, I could put a commercial for your resort on the end of my Thief Steals Sucker youtube video. Last time I checked (before I had to go back to this Stone Age G3) it was getting about 50,000 views a year. Footage of your resort in color would look great after the black-and-white video fishing action, like Dorothy coming into the land of Oz.

I'm sure there's people here that know a lot more about affiliate marketing than I do. From what little I know, I don't see why every business online wouldn't use some form of it. Do the ad banners interfere with SEO?

I don't think ad banners in SEO matter much, to a point, though Google places import on outgoing links. If an affiliate program is based upon garnering incoming and outgoing links to influence the SERPs, then you are going to have problems. Any type of paid link scheme that is in place for purely SEO purposes is bad. Also, any links going to bad neighborhoods is bad. What is a bad neighborhood? Typically directories or sites that do nothing but exchange links in order to spread more juice, though there may be other types of bad neighborhhods, too... Only google could tell you that.

Strictly from an SEO point of view, natural links are by far the best and safest way to go. What are natural links? Links that are created from people who find your information useful and wish to share it with others. Next best are links that are shared between Webmasters who believe the reciprocal links would benefit the users of both sites. This would mean that the sites would need to be in a related business, field, or whatever. A fishing site exchanging links with a porn site - BAD. A fishing site exchanging links with a resort (for the benefit of the resort and the benefit of the users of the fishing site) - good.
