Affiliate Marketing – Blogging Or Not to Blog?
If you are wondering whether you should add a blog to your affiliate arsenal or not, let me help you to take the decision.
If you are not blogging, I recommend you start today. And I will even go further and say that you should have more than one blog. In fact, if you are an intermediate marketer and you already have several sites in various markets, try to add a blog for each site.
Why should you do this?
Because search engines love blogs, and you will get more traffic like that. As I always say, more traffic means more money when you are doing affiliate marketing.
This is the reason why you don’t want to leave traffic for your competition. Get as much traffic as you can, from all the sources available.
Let’s face it, most of the Internet and affiliate marketers will start a new site and get excited about it. They will start to add new pages every single day for one or two weeks, and after a while, they will get bored or maybe start a new site. This is a big mistake. Why? Because having an authority site is a must have in your market. You want to have a site full of interesting of content, a site that people will recommend to others on discussion board and forum. In other words, a site that goes viral.
And let me tell you. It’s extremely difficult to do that with a site because it takes time to add content on a HTML website. On the other hands, with word-press blog for example, you can add content really fast. And Google, Yahoo and MSN will drive a lot of traffic on your ways as a result.
Today, there are a lot of blog templates, free or paid that are really professional. You can even add podcasting, audio and video. It is easier to create a five hundreds page that become an authority in your niche.
