Today, I’m going to list a few software affiliate programs you should consider. Software products can be a great enhancement to a business-advice site (think about tools such as office productivity or virus protection), a young adult site (gaming, college prep) or a technology site that reviews the latest, greatest software tools.

25 social media sites you need to check out today

If you don’t know about social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, My Space, and Google Plus, you’ve probably been living under a rock … or possibly an uncharted tropical island … for the past five years. While My Space has fizzled, Facebook is currently vying with Google to be the web’s most highly trafficked site. Twitter is growing in users exponentially. And Google Plus, launched a few short weeks ago, is quickly challenging Facebook’s dominance in social networking. If you do know about these sites, you already know about the power they have to build a fanbase, or as Seth … Continue reading

Five essential features of affiliate web hosting

Web hosting is an important, but often-overlooked component of affiliate marketing websites. When you’re running an affiliate marketing business, you often have too many details to pay attention to.

In addition, you’ll also need to pay close attention to the web hosting of your site.

How to get the most out of the Gravity Forms plugin for WordPress

If you’re running your affiliate website on WordPress, you’re going to need a plugin to create a form. A good form will help you capture visitor emails for your autoresponder list, collect customer feedback, and if you’re selling your own product – process orders through PayPal. Over the past few years, I’ve built more than 200 WordPress websites, using a variety of custom form code and plugins. (I don’t recommend custom coding a form, only because you can use a plugin to achieve what you need in half the time.) There are good free plugins available, such as Fast Secure … Continue reading

Today I’m going to talk about Scribe SEO, a terrific plugin for WordPress. If you’ve been reading this blog, you know I’m an advocate of using WordPress for affiliate marketing websites. It’s free, it’s simple to set up, and it makes it easy for the search engines to find and spider your content. But one thing WordPress doesn’t do, at least out of the box, is optimize your content for the search engines. Without proper search engine optimization (SEO), you can have the best content in the world and no visitors to your site. Why is that? Essentially there are … Continue reading

WordPress web hosting for affiliate marketers

When new affiliates are building their first WordPress website, web hosting is one of the key features they neglect. Many inexperienced affiliates will often simply opt for a free hosting plan, which provides minimal, if any, support. Or worse, they pay too much for a substandard hosting package from their domain name registrar. In some cases, everything works out fine. But lately I’ve heard from affiliates who have had mysterious issues with the WordPress websites, issues that were not the fault of the site owner, but the fault of the host. And in most of these situations, the offending host … Continue reading
