Guaranteed Top SE Ranks
Of all the ways to make money on the Internet, none is quite as easy as affiliate marketing. In fact, it’s double easy – easy to get started and far too easy to fail. That’s because the biggest trick to making money with affiliate marketing is building an audience. After all, no one will be clicking on your affiliate links if no one is reading your blogs, right? That’s why some of the most savvy – and most profitable – affiliate marketers turn to a blogging service for help. Here are three things blogging services understand that every affiliate marketer should know.
Consistency Is the Key to Building Readership
The number one key to building a good blog is consistent posting. This is true for both human and SEO purposes. Your audience (or your prospective audience) will check back to your blog if you post regularly. It doesn’t matter if you post daily, though most studies have shown that twice-weekly posting seems to be optimal. It does matter that you post consistently so your readers know when to expect new material from you. As far as SEO goes – the search engines give you points if your website is consistently updated. It tells them that the information you’re offering is up to date and, presumably, more reliable than posts that have been there for a year. If you’re schedule doesn’t allow for regular posting, a blogging service can pick up the slack with twice-weekly posts to your blogs, usually for very reasonable fees.
Niche Blogs Do Best in Affiliate Marketing
People turn to niche bloggers because they offer meaningful, useful knowledge. If that knowledge is delivered with personality, casual readers build loyalty and trust in the blogger – and that trust is vital to getting clicks on your affiliate links. Does that mean you have to be an expert in every affiliate product you recommend or link from your blog? Of course not! It does mean, though, that you need a working knowledge of the subject so that you can write credibly about it. Writers who work through blogging services like ours build expertise in their subjects. We’ll deliver well-researched, timely posts that provide the kind of information that will draw more readers to your blog.
Writing Soft Sells Is an Art that Few Can Master
Readers aren’t looking for hard sells when they hit your blog posts. They’re looking for information about knitting or cleaning or green products or healthy cooking – or whatever your blog subject is. If you fill your posts with nothing but sales pitches, you’ll have a hard time holding onto your audience. Professional blogging services employ writers who are expert at the soft sell – providing enough information about your affiliate product to make your readers want to click through to product website to learn more.
