    there are quite a few plugins to help with the ad placement;

    personal opinion:
    make the front page shorter;
    turn your three to five top posts into pages, to list them in the menu;
    show categories and tags in the sidebar;
    make clear you have something to sell;
    maybe add a product link to the sidebar (if you can avoid the sales letter you are linking to).

    Thanks for your helpful tips!Shortening the front page is sure a great idea! will do!
    I have shown categories on the sidebar already.
    My aim of my blog besides giving useful content was to recommend the ebook by pre-selling and avoiding the direct sales pitch as per the advise of many super affliates.
    I am not sure i can add the product directly- being an affliate i would have to send leads to the merchant's sales page and not link directly to the product- unless i am missing a crucial trick here?
    Every little helps...please keep some more opinions coming thank you!
