Affiliate Marketing Success Using Blogs

Because of curiosity and my love of all things Internet related, more than three years ago I attended a bloggers’ get together. When asked if I had a blog, my answer was that “I do so much writing already, why would I ever need or enjoy creating a blog?” Since that memorable evening I read a few blogs, but still felt no desire to have one of my own. And then, it happened! I was bombarded by glowing reports of the importance of and marketing payoffs of having a blog.

A few years ago the difference between these two Internet platforms was greater than it is today, yet what made them different then, does the same now.

The free marketing methods may seem like the hardest, but they’re also the absolute best. It’s going to take a decent amount of real work to get a good amount of traffic online. It will take some time, but in the end it always pays off.

On the other hand, I say this with a sheepish smile, since blogs are free, I set up another blog in Google for my family and friends where I simply post pictures of the family and news about them. This I have no need to be picked up by web search engines, and just pass out the URL to my kids and close friends. Which is another way to use weight training.

At any rate, I decided to check them out. The fact that a number of blog publishers allow you to build and post your comments for free, certainly didn’t hurt either.

Websites are more expensive to create and maintain than blogs. Unless you are skilled with using HTML code, understand CSS scripts and how to use FTP, you will no doubt have to hire a webmaster to take care of these things for you. This of course costs money. Any future changes will also incur additional costs which could make owning a website less attractive for many.

In order to earn more cash using your blogs, it is advisable that you recommend particular products or services to others. You can make money by your blogs through creation of links. You will be amazed by how your blogs can generate income within a short duration.
