Affiliate Tip - Build A Blog
A blog is a great way to add content to a site quickly. You can
use a blog as an add-on to your regular website, or use it by itself.
Either way, a blog allows you to share content, like reviews, articles,
or short musings on a particular topic with your readers.
To create a blog, you will need some sort of blogging software
as well as a hosting account. You have several options when it comes
to both. The blogging software is usually free, and you have a choice
of free hosting, or paid hosting it on your own domain.
The two big players when it comes to blogging software are blogger
and wordpress. The main difference between the two is that the blogger
hosts its software on its own server, and wordpress, is free software
that you install on your hosting account. Once wordpress is installed,
it is just as easy to use as blogger’s software.
Wile a wordpress blog is always hosted on your own account, you
can host your blog free on blogger, or you can host it on your own
hosting account and under your own domain.
Once you blog is set up, you will be able to start posting content.
Using a blog is very similar to using email or a message board.
You enter a title for your post and then type in your message.
While you can’t use regular search engine optimization strategies,
you can use your main keyword for the topic you are writing about
in your title as well as in the beginning of your message or post.
This will help search engine determine what your blog and this particular
post are about.

which means you will get actively searching visitors to your blog
rather quickly as well. Blogs make another great tool in any affiliate
marketers toolbox, since you can very easy and very quickly add
To monetize your blog, you can work product recommendations into
your post, for example, if you are an affiliate for an ebook on
how to get your baby to sleep through the night, you could write
a review about the ebook and post it on your blog, or you could
write a short article about how new parents can cope with the lack
of good night sleep until baby sleeps through the night and then
mention the ebook as a resource at the end of your article.
Add links to some of your favorite affiliate products to the side
bar of your blog, so they appear no matter what particular post
the visitor is reading.
You can also add pay per click ads like Google Adsense either on
the sidebar or in the individual blog posts. Here’s a tip
if you are using google adsense in the body of your post. Make sure
your posts are not too short and you stick to one particular topic
per post. This will allow google to display ads that are related
to your post topics and will hopefully be of interest to your readers
and make them click.
