No Blog Stands Alone: Why You Need Affiliates - Get More Traffic!
(Page 2 of 4 )
Blogs are made just for the Internet because they offer everything the Internet is about: fresh, frequently-updated content that's chock-full of keywords. Your content is what you use to get all your traffic, so make sure yours is interesting, easy to read and easily accessible. Even short, casual blog posts can be keyword-focused to drive more traffic to your Web pages.
There are lots of ways you can improve your blog, embellishments you can add and interesting, engaging content you might create. But suppose you're already using videos, pictures, internal links and plenty of interactive additions? What if all your content is already very strong SEO-wise, but your blog still isn't as popular as you might like?
What you may not realize is that no blog stands alone, and you need friends in the blogosphere. Need to get more traffic? You might need to establish some affiliates.
Advertising with Affiliates
Affiliate marketing is by no means a new concept on the World Wide Web. Through affiliate agreements, Web sites form marketing partnerships with each other. You've no doubt seen similar cross-promotions in all forms of advertising -- two companies team up to tout themselves and each other, which improves the revenue of both.
Affiliate marketing works in much the same way as any other type of cross-promotion. Are there blogs out there that you like, which offer content that somehow complements or even contrasts with yours? You might want to consider advertising with them, as your blog affiliates.
Here's how it works: you have a blog that you'd like to promote. Blog 459 also wants to promote themselves, and you're somewhat friendly with that site. Here's what you do: you agree to link to Blog 459 on your blog, and Blog 459 agrees to link to your blog on their site. Your traffic visits them; their traffic visits you. That's pretty much all there is to this particular marketing technique. See how simple affiliate marketing can be?
So...how can you use it to your advantage?
