It’s All About The Cookies!

Philanthropist extraordinaire Missy Ward has announced her latest project to help fellow marketers and share some yummy recipes in her new book, It’s All About The Cookies.  As of today, Missy is now accepting folks to submit their recipes!  Not only will this be a great book, but it’s ultimately for a great cause.  100% of the net profits will be donated to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, which has raised more than $380 million since 2003 to help fight this horrible disease.

This unique book may look like a cookbook, smell like a cookbook, and you’ll be able to make yummy delicious treats like from a cookbook… but here’s the catch.  It’s REALLY a marketing book.  When you submit your recipe you must also submit a marketing insight to share with other marketers.  So not only are you going to get some great recipes (I’m very partial to the one I submitted), but you’re going to get some marketing schooling.

From their website:

Since the 90’s, affiliate marketers have had a love affair with cookies – not the chocolate chip, or oatmeal variety – but the pieces of code that ultimately tracks affiliates’ sales and commissions earned.

These affiliate marketers are a diverse group. Some work part-time and earn enough to subsidize their income while others have created extremely lucrative businesses.

For the uninitiated, Missy Ward is Co-Founder of Affiliate Summit, Co-Publisher/Co-Editor in Chief of FeedFront Magazine, VP of Operations for, Founder of Affiliate Marketers Give Back, and all around amazing woman I’m happy to know.  Also involved in this great project are Mary Poiley, founder of; and Jen Goode, Doodler in Charge of

If you’ve got an awesome recipe, and some keen marketing advice or knowledge to share, please submit a recipe!

Jen’s Breakfast Sausage Gravy

Jen Says: We like the Jimmy Dean brand of sausage and prefer Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits.  If the gravy ends up too thick, add more milk.
