Exploring eBay for Affiliate Marketing

After a very rewarding and successful experience using the Amazon Associates program. I decided that I should start an additional revenue stream. I've been using Google Adsense and Amazon exclusively for my affiliate marketing projects, but I'd like to add eBay into the mix.
How To Start Real Ebusinesses: Using Multiple Streams Of Income (Volume 1)

Many affiliate marketers have been earning a revenue from eBay, and I feel as though I've been missing my slice of the pie by not joining in on the fun. So today, I submitted an application to join the program. It was a relatively straight forward process, and I couldn't help but notice how easy they made it to join all of their international affiliate programs at once. With Amazon, you have to create a separate account for each international zone.

I'm curious as to how I might include eBay into my existing affiliate retail operations. I'm trying to increase my chances of earning, and also increase my revenue per month. I've been checking out some eBay marketing books that will hopefully help me to get the most out of the program, one of the books: How To Start Real Ebusinesses: Using Multiple Streams Of Income (Volume 1) .

Before anything, I'm going to have to be approved for the program. I submitted my website E-commerce For Everyone as my main website to use with the program. Hopefully, there isn't any issue with me using the eBay program on many different websites. Currently I'm operating over 60 different, affiliate retail websites, and if I keep doing what I'm doing (setting up a new one each week), then I feel 2010 will be a great year for me.

I'll follow up to this post if I get approved, and hopefully document the steps I'm taking on my road to success. I've been posting on my amazon associate blog over at WordPress, but since Blogger has integrated Amazon Associates, I might start to switch it up a little. I'll have to make it a point to post more in my Information Technology blog.
