So you want to get involved with affiliate marketing? If so, you are definitely moving towards a big money maker if you can get on track. When it comes down to it, there is no limit as to how much money you can make through affiliate marketing. The great thing about this is that you never have to stock an item, but you can sell pretty much anything you want. Once you have an established website or blog you should be able to add affiliate programs to increase your monthly income.
For those of you who want to learn about affiliate marketing, take the time to visit Associateprograms.com. In my opinion there is no better resource for information on this industry. Not only do you have access to top notch information, but it does not stop there. Associateprograms.com also offers an affiliate programs directory which makes it easy for you to find items to market.
Additionally, the affiliate marketing forum is a great place to not only ask questions, but to also read about past successes and failures of others. This is an active forum with more than 15,000 registered users. At the time of writing this there are 65 users online. This is not a huge number, but it is safe to say that somebody will be able to answer your questions within a reasonable amount of time.
Allan Gardyne is the CEO and founder of Associateprograms.com. He has been earning a full-time income from affiliate marketing for almost 10 years, and it is safe to say that he is still going strong. As you probably know by now, I strongly believe in learning from those who have had success in the past. And if you are interested in affiliate marketing, there are not too many people out there who have had the success of Allan Gardyne, and are still willing to help others.
With a lot of money to be made through affiliate marketing, you should look into adding this income stream to your website or blog. If you are still a bit unsure about getting started, consider taking the time to read Associateprograms.com. You will find everything you need to get started!
As I have said before, my technical skills are not the greatest. I have no idea how to design a blog, let alone deal with complexities such as coding. When it comes down to it, I am a writer and that is pretty much what I do. For everything technical, I have to farm out the work to one of my contractors; which is not a huge deal, I suppose. But with that being said, it does cost money, and waiting for them to do the work is not always the easiest thing to do.
Leo over at the Idiot Affiliate recently gave me a plug entitled, â€œLearn Freelance Writing and Blogging with Chris Blogging.â€ I was quite happy to see this as I am always interested in spreading my knowledge, and of course, learning from others in the process. But in the last paragraph of his post, I read something that really caught my eye.
â€œOn a side note, I encourage Chris to pick up that technical torch and run with it for awhile.Â It isnâ€™t as hard as you think it is!â€
This got me thinking; maybe he is right? All this time I have been concentrating on writing, but never taking the time to learn the technical side of blogging.
So my question is, how can I learn about design, coding, and all that other good stuff? Again, since I have no idea what this is all about, I really donâ€™t know where to start.
Any suggestions would be great. After all, if I am going to continue to grow this blog, doing some design work and adding new features is a must.
Let me know how you developed your technical skills. Hopefully this is something that I can work on in the near future!
Since starting this blog, I have made one post per day, everyday. While this may not sound like a lot, it is a goal that I take very seriously. I strive to make sure that readers have something new to think about everyday of the week; even Saturday and Sunday. After about 60 days of doing this, I think that I am finally ready to step up to two posts per day. There are several reasons that I am considering this.
First off, I have received a lot of positive response from readers, and many of them are asking for more posts. Since I like to keep everybody happy, I would love to increase my daily output. I feel that I have the time to do this, and even if something came up, I could always take a step back to one post per day while getting back on track.
Additionally, I have a backlog of topics that I really want to write about. Writing is what I do, and having so many great topics staring me in the face makes me anxious. To me, coming up with new topics has never been a problem, and it seems that I add a few new ones to my list everyday. If I am ever going to get through them all, increasing my output is essential.
Finally, I am hoping that adding more content will help with traffic; both from returning visitors and search engines. If this happens, I can then move forward with some of the other goals that I have for this blog.
I am not totally sure if I am going to make the move to two posts per day, but it is on my mind. By later this week I will definitely have a decision!
