Affiliate Market Blogging
In this article I will go though step by step over a common method where affiliate marketing is used in blogging to make a profit.
Step 1: Pick Your Niche/Topic
Pick the topic of what your website will be about. It should be something that you are familiar with and are interested in writing about. Keep in mind that certain topics can be more profitable than others. Also some fields can be more difficult to profit in due to a high rate of competition. For example, if chose to have a blog about credit cards, that is a very competitive field compared to something like “having a home garden.”
Step 2: Set up a Blog
If you do not have an online blog, go to www.Blogger.com and sign up for their blogging services. (Everything I mention in this article in 100% free to sign up.)It is also important that you find a name for your blog that is either catchy or direct and informative about what your site is about.
Step 3: Writing Content for Your Blog
Most people fail when it comes to writing content. All it requires is consistent work and focus yet so many people give up here. You’re going to need to spend between 20 to 30 minutes per day posting new content to your blog.
(Yes, this takes a little bit of time out of your day, but it’s worth it when it comes to making money.)
If you can consistently focus on your blog, posting at least one keyword-optimized article every day, the search engines will notice your site, bringing your site traffic, then you will be able to use that traffic to make money online by advertising, using Google AdSense, or as an affiliate marketer. I’ll talk about these later in this article.
Step 4: Getting Traffic to Your Site
Once you have several articles in your blog, it’s time to start getting your site noticed by the world. You can start by building high-quality backlinks.
1.) Go to Yahoo Answers, find some open questions related to your blog and a well thought out answer answer. Use information from your website as a source for the information. Make sure your answers are well written, not just stolen from your website.
2.) Find a blog related to your site, and post a thoughtful comment and provide a back link to your site.
3.) Create a Squidoo Lens. This is an easy way to create a strong back link in just 5 minutes. Squidoo allows you to put ads, amazon products, or ebay auctions on the article you post on their site, and this site can help you make extra money depending how often you post.
4.) You can also post content from your site to article directories. This will be easy once you have some content that you wrote because you can copy and paste the exact same article to the directories. The directories are highly ranked in google, and if you provide a back link, chances are high that someone will visit your site. Every article I write I post on Associated Content which pays you $1.50-$2.00 per 1000 views. They also offer upfront payments which can be up to $15 if you submit a high quality article. So if you have the content already written…why not sign up?
Step 5: Make Money Online By Using AdSense and Affiliate Marketing
It is super easy to put Google AdSense in Blogger. I am sure you have done it already. Be patient, overtime, the clicks will increase and you will start earning more money.
A may to make a heftier profit is by using affiliate programs. Basically, you are putting companies products on your site, and if one of your visitors buys a product, you will receive anywhere from 5%-75% commission. One of the top affiliate programs is Clickbank. Clickbank is one of the best performing affiliate programs, and it is very very easy to use. You can choose any of thousands of products and include them in your website. The payouts are usually around 50%, and any affiliate would recommend Clickbank for new users.
If you follow this step-by-step guide to affiliate marketing, you will make money online. You cannot fail if you are consistent. You can repeat the process as many times as you want but I recommend making one website and make give it your best. Making money online with Affiliate Marketing may be a little overwhelming at times, but just use this guide as a resource and you will survive.
