An Important Question to help find the Perfect Promotions

Forget the website. Forget the marketing. Forget the community building and networking. All of these items rely on one crucial element: the right offer.

There are plenty of up-and-comers trying to replicate their success. The market is flooded. So when you begin promoting offers that have been done to death you have to sit and ponder whether you’ll find real success in affiliate marketing. What you need to start doing is asking … Continue reading

Three Traits you need to Change as an Affiliate Marketer

When you make that transition from being an employee or traditional business owner into the world of affiliate marketing you bring along a lot of baggage. An employee has been trained to follow specific rules for their position. They aren’t allowed to think outside the box and solve problems their way, usually. Established business owners, too, get into a mindset of “if it’s not broke then don’t fix it”. Most of them have developed traits that set limiters on their ability to grow, in business. They may not see it immediately but it would become very apparent if and when … Continue reading

Resource Pages. Do you have one?

A resource page is like handing the toolbox over to your community. These pages are a roundup of tools that have received your highest recommendation, praise, and usage. They are extremely effective because it allows new-comer’s and existing community members a glimpse into what you use to embrace the subject of your website. It becomes a starting, reference point that is collected in one location (versus scattered deep within the archives of your site). Including a resource page not only allows you to avoid repeatedly answering inquiries from readers about recommendations but it gives you an easy vehicle for affiliated … Continue reading

Fizzles and Duds: Reinvigorating Content that didn’t Receive Attention

I don’t know about you but I absolutely hate when I put a lot of work into a piece of content, that I’m very passionate about, only to have it fizzle and dud. It’s the type of content you pour everything into yet, at the end of the day, it’s overshadowed by something you (or others) quickly slapped together. Part of the problem is Google’s love for fresh content which has seemed to allow people to jumble up the dates to game the search rankings. This puts already ranking content higher up due to the algorithm change which is kind … Continue reading

Have you ever wondered why most newspapers keep their articles in columns without having huge blocks of texts much like books?   Maybe there’s a reason why? Well, I can tell you: It’s because it allows people to easily read the text without them being overloaded.   If you think about it, we’re transitioning into a society which predominantly reads text messages that are rarely longer than 140 characters. It doesn’t mean that all media is going to shift into this short-form but it’s something to remember when writing your blog posts.   Here’s a few reasons why it may … Continue reading
