Of all the websites I've ever built for my business, I've found blogs to be the most effective way to build a website. It's not just an effective way to build a website, but it's also a way to make money and distribute your content.
Blogs work not just for product owners but affiliates too. If you want to use a blog to make money online, there are several things you can to do.
First, a blog is a way for you to create a content rich website for your business. Once you set everything up, you don't have to deal with the website building aspect at all. All you have to do is write and add content to your site. This allows you to focus on what's most important: creating quality content to attract visitors to your website.
A blog will also allow you to build a relationship with your readers by creating a simple way for them to communicate with you. You can write blog posts and allow your readers to voice their opinions. This will help you determine what content you need to write, as well as find out what your readers' concerns and issues are.
You may also want to consider writing about your products or services. This allows you to offer your readers additional value by sharing more information with your readers than they would normally get from just reading your sales letter.
Other content options you have are: articles, product reviews (others' products), news from your industry, free reports and software, and any other tools you may find to give your readers. These content types are also a great way for an affiliate to build a blog, especially if you are writing product reviews for others' products.
Readers love reviews because reviews tell them more about a product than what's included in the sales letter. It's like having insider information, and by offering honest reviews of products you will make your readers more loyal by sharing this information with them.
As well as being a great way to distribute content, blogs are also a great public relations tool. Your blog allows you to build your brand, as well as build your reputation online. Even as an affiiate marketer you can build your brand and reputation. Just write quality content. Provide top notch reviews and demonstrate your expertise. Eventually you can expand on this content and create your own products too.
Blogging is a great way to make money by writing content that presells. It's also a great way to communicate with your readers.
