No Blog Stands Alone: Why You Need Affiliates - Choosing a Blog Affiliate: Things to Remember
(Page 4 of 4 )
It's very important to know who your competition is when you're a blogger. What other bloggers share your audience? This is something you must consider carefully, especially if you're serious about affiliate marketing.
Some bloggers may go the opposite route, but in many cases it's a good idea to form an alliance with your competition if you can. You're already sharing the same traffic...why not really share the same traffic?
In blogging, it's always important to know exactly who your audience is so you can better tailor and target your posts for them. Include comments, online feedback forms, polls and other extras that will help you identify your audience. You have to know who you're writing to if you want to continue to appeal to them on a regular basis, right?
Know which blogs target the same audience, and bring them on board as affiliates when possible. There's a lot of Internet traffic out there, so don't be afraid to spread the hits with a few affiliate agreements.
Affiliate Marketing and Blogging
Affiliate marketing in blogging can be a whole different animal when compared to other types of online affiliate agreements. You may link to your affiliates within the content of regular blog posts, for example, or link to them as a reference for your readers.
No matter how you do it, always be sure to hold up your end of the deal in affiliate marketing. As long as your blogging buddies are keeping up their links to you, be sure to link back to them until the affiliation is terminated.
