Affiliate Marketing, Blogging and Adding Meat to Bones
Every morning that I awake the internet is one of the things that I give God thanks for. Never has it been so easy to start your own business and you can even market it for free with the right techniques.
Anyone from my farmer Grandmother to the beggar on the street can have their own online business. The easiest way to start one’s own internet business is to sign up as an affiliate and sell a company’s services or wares for a commission. Commissions can ranged from a measly 5% (Old Navy) to a generous 75% (Mysurveysjob.com).
The best way to get started is to head on over to Blogger.com and build a weblog . Now, don’t back away just yet, this is the easy part. You don’t have to know any technical hogwash to create your own weblog ; there are pre designed templates for you to choose from. Just pick one which suits your taste and in no time you are ready to start adding some meat to the bones of your weblog via content.
If you are not into writing, there are thousands of articles sites that you can get free reprint information. Say you want to be an affiliate in the lucrative poker industry, Ezinearticles.com, Isnare.com and many others have hundreds of poker articles for your perusal. All you need to do is follow the strict reprint rules and soon your weblog ’s collar bones will begin to come out of that hole.
Now that you are beginning to get familiar with your niche you will be researching and learning more and more. Then you may begin to compose your knowledge and share it with others in the form of articles.
As your weblog ’s jawbones stop protruding with the nourishment of content, you may feel to start networking with others. Forums are great to meet others with a similar interest and to get solutions to your problems and to help others solve theirs.
To make your weblog have those swinging hips you need to feed it with a list. What kind of list? A list of email prospects that is supplied with valuable information on a regular basis via email. You can subtly send them directly to your affiliate links or boldly direct them to your weblog with your affiliate links strategically placed to ensure maximum exposure and click through.
Your commissions should be reinvested into PPC ads and ezine advertising especially Solo ads. The urge to get your own domain name and hosting may start to grow and this is strongly urged. But if you choose to remain on Blogger like me then no problem; it’s not what you have but what you do with it that counts.
Now for the burning question? How soon will your weblog go from skin and bones to having those swinging hips? A few months to a year would be a good time frame. If you add just two posts a day to your weblog in six months time you would have hundreds of pages with traffic generating keywords intact. Still don’t want to wait that long? Look at this way. Even Popeye knows that Olive could not be bouncy like Oprah in two months time. So why would you expect your affiliate business to accomplish that goal?

Blogging - AdSense for Beginners
Those of you who have been reading my site JoelComm.com (and that’s all of you, right?) will know that my mom has just started blogging. I’m so proud of her. You can see her weblog at www.travelswithsheila.com, and most importantly you can see how she’s optimized her ads.
That’s a great case study for anyone wondering where to put their ads on their weblog . They’re beautifully optimized and they’re already bringing in money.
Now, my mom has never been much of a tech-head. She’s only now thinking of buying a laptop. But what’s impressed me is how fast she got up and earning with a weblog .
I think that sometimes those of us who have been building sites and uploading content for years forget how frightening dealing with servers and finding domains can be for newbies.
Blogging is the ultimate solution. You can have your own weblog in minutes and plugging in the ads is an absolute breeze. Heck, Blogger practically throw the ads at you.
The only possible concern with blogs is how you can get the maximum income from them. Once you’ve got the ads blended and positioned, all that’s left to do is play with is content. You’ve really got two choices here. You can either keep writing about the things that interest you and hope that those topics are interesting enough to interest lots of other people. Or you can focus your writing on products to bring up targeted ads with expensive keywords.
I think that the best strategy is to do both at the same time.
The reason that people read blogs is that they feel they have a relationship with the person behind the page. They like them. They trust them. And they’re interested in what they have to say. Create a weblog that’s focused solely on bringing up high-earning ads, and you’ll get those ads. But you won’t have anyone to click on them.
Create a weblog that interests you — and others — and use it to mention topics that are going to bring up good ads and you’ll get the best of both worlds. Again, my mom’s weblog is a great example of this. When she writes about her travels, she creates some great stories that are really fun to read. But she also might mention the equipment she uses when she’s hiking down a mountain or skiing down a slope. That provides good information for her readers and good ads that pay for her weblog .

Blogging Software - If you are eager to create a blog there are many kinds of blogging software to get you going easily and quickly. One of most popular is Blogger.com.

This could be compared to the days when many companies offered free hosting so you could set up your own web site.
Rss Resources - As you search around this article site looking for articles to add to your web site, consider this: there are probably 10 people like yourself doing the same exact thing.

Unique Content - This is an expression that you will very often see on the internet but what does it really mean and why is content so important? Content is very important because that is what the search engines are constantly looking for when scanning the net and it is just not any kind of content they are looking for either.
Updated Content - Some webmasters try to use articles from free content directories to get visitors to their site and make some money. This is mostly important for those who have just begun working as an affiliate for several companies and do not yet have any funding, yet need to build small niche web sites to get visitors to their site so that they can begin making revenue.
Adding Fresh Content - As you start getting more media-savvy, you'll find yourself coming up with more and more information and ideas to help the public. Not all of these ideas will strike the fancy of your media contacts, but don't let them go to waste--become a media person yourself by publishing an e-zine.

Dynamic Website Content - If you are like most internet surfers, you will spend much of your time hanging around web sites with dynamic web site content, or content that is updated constantly or personalized to your preferences. The age of static, archival web sites is long gone, in in its place is a dynamic and powerful internet driven by PHP, ASP, CGI, and Java.
