How to write articles to boost sales 2

If you’ve been checking out this series of articles, you’ve seen how important it is for any serious affiliate marketer to have good web content. Good content can mean the difference between someone clicking onto your site and clicking away a moment later and someone staying for a while and then clicking through to buy the affiliate marketing product or service you’re trying to sell. But what if you just aren’t a very good writer? What if your mind is programmed for business, not English. Don’t worry, there are options for you.

• Search the public domain. There are millions of articles that are currently in the public domain that you can use on your web site free of charge. A simple web search can bring up hundreds of these kinds of articles. And the best part is you can edit them, change them, alter them or do whatever you want to them so that they sound exactly like you want them to. You don’t have to worry about paying any authors or stepping on any toes. This is an excellent way to go if you don’t want to write content yourself.

• You can pay companies to write content for you, and in most cases, it’s cheaper than you think, having in mind what the affiliate marketing payment are. When you consider how important good web content is, paying someone a few dollars to write exactly what you need isn’t such a bad idea. Of course, some companies charge more than others and it always pays to shop around, but don’t shut yourself off to the idea of paying for content. Sometimes you have to spend money to make money and this is one of those cases if you don’t want to write your own web content.

• Maybe the best choice of the three is to simply read and learn. Spend a week or two clicking around on the Internet and reading the web content on other affiliate websites. Take as much of that content in and then try to write in a similar style about the product you’re trying to sell. You don’t instantly become the best writer in the world this way, but studies have shown that the more you read, the better writer you’ll be. Experience pays and the more you know about how to write in this style, the easier it will be.

Having solid web content can’t be overstated. You will never have a truly successful affiliate marketing website unless you have good content for your affiliate marketing sites. If you can’t write it yourself, you do have other options, but the best thing you can do is to learn how to write in this style. It will be an investment that will pay off time and time again.

Daily Life Of The Affiliate Marketer

affiliate marketer dollarsThe affiliate marketer remembered that there are questions to answer from the visitors. This has to be done quickly. Nothing can turn off a customer than an unanswered email. To prove that the affiliate is working effectively and efficiently, inquiries would have to be paid more attention on. Nobody wants to be ignored and customers are not always the most patient of all people. Quick answer that should appear professional yet friendly too.

In the process of doing all the necessities, the marketer is logged on to a chat room where he or she interacts with other affiliates and those under that same program. This is where they can discuss things on how to best promote their products. There are things to be learned and it is a continuous process. Sharing tips and advices is a good way of showing support. There may be others out there wanting to join and may be enticed by the discussion that is going on. There is no harm in assuming what opportunities ahead.

The newsletters and ezines were updated days ago, so it is time for the affiliate marketer to see if there are some new things happening in the market. This will be written about in the marketer’s publication to be distributed to the old and new customers.

These same publications are also an important tool in keeping up to date with the newly introduced products. The marketer has put up a sale and promotion that customers may want to know about. Besides, they have to keep up with the deadline of these sales written in the publications.

It is that time to show some appreciation to those who have helped the marketer in the promotions and sale increase. Nothing like mentioning the persons, their sites and the process they have done that made everything worked.

Of course, this will be published in the newsletters. Among the more important information that have been written already.

successful affiliate marketerThe marketer still has time to write out recommendations to those who want credible sources for the products being promoted. There is also time to post some comments on how to be a successful affiliate marketer on a site where there are lots of wannabees.

Two objectives done at the same time. The marketer gets to promote the product as well as the program they are in. Who knows, someone may be inclined to join. Time flies. Missed lunch but is quite contented with the tasks done. Bed time….

Ok, so this may not be all done in a day. But then, this gives you an idea of how an affiliate marketer, a dedicated one that is, spends the affiliate marketing day.

Is that success looming in the distance or what?

Being in the affiliate marketing business is not that hard now with the internet at your disposable. It is much easier now compared to the days when people have to make use of the telephones and other mediums of information just to get the latest updates on the way their program is coming along. So with technology at hand, and assuming that the affiliate is working from home, a day in his or her life would sound something like this…

Upon waking up and after having breakfast, the computer is turned on to check out new developments in the network. As far as the marketer is concerned there might be new things to update and statistics to keep track on.

The site design has to be revised. The marketer knows that a well-designed site can increase sign ups from visitors. It can also help in the affiliate’s conversion rates. That done, it is time to submit the affiliate program to directories that lists affiliate programs. These directories are means to attract people in joining your affiliate program. A sure way of promoting the affiliate program.

Time to track down the sales you are getting from your affiliates fairly and accurately. There are phone orders and mails to track down. See if they are new clients checking the products out. Noting down the contact information that might be a viable source in the future.

There are lots of resources to sort out. Ads, banners, button ads and sample recommendations to give out because the marketer knows that this is one way of ensuring more sales. Best to stay visible and accessible too.

How to raise you PR fast!!!

Every single affiliate marketer want to raise the PR (page rank) of their sites and this is not something “NEW”. Here are some opinions of how you can achieve that goal, they are all based on the experience that most of these marketers:

On Question Like: “what should i do to raise the PR and make more keywords top?”

1. You need a lot of websites linking to you basically…and the higher PR of the pages linking to you and the more relevant they are the better!

2. I would suggest you focus more on your rankings in SERP. Optimize onpage (titles, headers, meta, keywords, etc.) and the do offpage though quality link building (using your keywords as anchor texts). Some ways to build links:

Directory submissions
Forum sigs
Blogs commenting
Article marketing
Social bookmarking
Link baiting

If you really want to build PR, search for “dofollow” blogs and participate relevantly and always be on-topic. Also building links to higher PR sites similar to your niche would also help.

3. It isn’t about the PR. It is about how well you optimize it..

4. The only way you can raise your PR fast is to do a bunch of stuff before Google publishes new PR data. You’d have to do it close enough that it feels fast, but not too close Google doesn’t crawl your new links in time.

5. submit your site to list of directories.

6. Choose quality link partners, minimize reciprocal linking and prioritize One-way links and also Create new, unique & fresh content

7. You get better PR by having a good quality site. Content is the most imporant, next is back links.

8. Page rank has little impact on your actual rankings. It could be possible that there are some SEO errors which might be suppressing your SEO rankings.Make sure you do not have any duplicate content on your website, and add quality back links towards your website.

9. Seriously, I vote that the next person who says “get more backlinks” without explaining the types of backlinks worth getting should end up with their genitals stuck in their ears.


It’s really simple, as Paul pointed out. Good sites generate the kind of links (actual traffic generating links) that webmasters want. These aren’t the low-budget chumpstain throw-a-few-banner-ads-and-little-else sites or the copy-everyone-else’s-article-site article sites or any of the other low-grade get-rich-quick-if-rich-equals-about-47-cents-over-a-year sites out there. These are sites that are useful, and original, and actually have something to offer.

Like Paul’s site. Take a hard look at it. He has stuff on there that no one else has…why? Because he actually took the time to write it himself. The only tiein to backlinks is that he gets backlinks from real people (including myself) who recognize and appreciate the time and effort he has put into writing quality content that benefits the end user. Those links in turn send him traffic…as in actual users (you know, the same ones most SEOs end up forgetting about because they’re so obsessed with rankings). Those users turn around and tell their friends. And so on and so on.

That’s the answer. Build something that others feel is worth sharing with others.

10. How to get your pr higher is like playing English snooker…easy to start playing with…impossible to master. Also don’t forget that your site may have billions of backlinks, but if the majority of them have nofollow tag (you can be sure that will happen, specially backlinks from high pr sites) its really a hopeless quest. For me Pr is just an illusion to make google even more rich…

11. PR is not a solution for increasing your SERP.

12. normally I submit to the directories and comment some blog.

13. I personally think PR is totally about smoke and mirrors, think about it. Google is probably one of the most secretive orgs in the world when it comes to anything remotely SEO. So why then do they provide a nice tool in google toolbar to show their score of a website? I think its purely to take peoples eyes off google’s real algorithms. Google does a fine job of creating mass dilusions

One side comment, not truly on topic but worth mentioning, stay clear of buying links, google is getting hotter and hotter on it. And if you are selling marketing space, links, banner spots or similar, make **** sure you put NOFOLLOW attribute on the page or links themselves or google WILL penalise your page or site.

14. create a sitemap in webdirectory

15. I support statements about qulaity content – there are lots of examples were a low PR site outranks high pr site on some of the keyword based on its knowledge (size and quality of the content) on particular keyword.

At the same time I can give a few examples where the positions in Google are purely built on link and anchor text from inbound links.

Biggest dependency is the competition – the weaker the competing sites the easier it is to get to the top.

Straight to the topic – fastest way to drive pr is increase traffic to the site. The more traffic the higher the pr

16. My websites have over 300 pages of high quality video tutorials, the ranking were dropped from PR5 to PR4, PR3…… finally to PR0 about 6 months ago. When my websites have only about 30 pages, the ranking was PR5 about two years ago. The more contents I added, the lowest PR will result.

I think PR has no any relationship with content. Even websites with only a few pages with normal contents have PR3 or PR4. Why my websites with 300 pages with different contents will be penalized to PR0?

17. on page SEO and a couple of links does wonders for SERP ranking

18. Backlinks are the key. But also use anchor text in the backlinks.

For example…


The word ‘Google’ is the anchor text, substitute that for keywords that you think others might use to bring your site up in the results.

19. Okay since PR is really an issue for the OP, you could also try participating in dofollow forums, blogs, or submitting to directories, etc. Their value is very low but they sum up. Overtime those pages you participate in or submitted to might have higher PR in the future.

You can also look for expired domains with PR and buy it.

20. Hi
Now PR is a favorite topic of mine

The ways to get good PR are
Great unique, frequently updated content. This is really the way to go

Page popularity ie backlinks Must be domne with some care

I think the content of your page is of paramount importance. There are websites that are not affected by the Google updates and I think this is due to the great webpage content

With regards to building backlinks, sticking to things like article submission and commenting in related blogs [pay attention to the titles of the posts you are commenting on are good practice

How To Best Select An Affiliate Program

Affiliate ProgramsInternet Affiliate Marketing products and services through the Internet is unquestionably easier and more rewarding compared to traditional marketing methods. With the millions of people worldwide getting online each day, there’s an enormous possibility for a merchant to sell his products and generate huge income.

However, merchandisers are not the only ones who can benefit from online marketing. A booming industry nowadays, provides great opportunity as well to individuals as affiliate marketers. In affiliate marketing, an affiliate marketer doesn’t need to have his own products and services to sell. All he needs to do is to refer people to the merchant’s business site for them to buy the products and thereby, earn a commission.

The key to an affiliate marketer’s success is to choose a good affiliate program and to employ excellent marketing techniques in promoting or selling the products to consumers. Why good and not the best affiliate program? There is no “best affiliate marketing program,” as one program might make one affiliate marketer a millionaire and the other a frustrated marketer. In other words, it can be a success to one and a failure to another. But there certainly is a good affiliate marketing program to start with. How to make it best would now depend on you.

But before you think how you are going to make it best and financially rewarding, first think about how you are going to land on a good affiliate program with the thousands of affiliate marketing opportunities abounding in the Internet today. Try to look into the following tips and suggestions on how to best select the affiliate program that’s right for you.

Information, that’s you need in order to make the right choice. It is helpful when you have already focused your search to a specific interest, which may be the theme of your website (if you already have one). In this way, you would be able to direct yourself towards a program that really matches your needs, wants and resources. It would be easier for you to eliminate options that are not suited to your own criteria for a good affiliate marketing program. You can join affiliate forums and learn some tips and get suggestions from experienced affiliate marketers. However, be wise enough to weigh their ideas before you buy them.

Affiliate ProgramFor example some of the well know affiliate programs that make huge income for their affiliates are advertised here in the blog (look the side bar). The Listed programs are proven to work and pay on time.

The Internet Affiliate marketing program networks are good places to look for choices. Here, merchants and affiliate marketers like you meet. The merchants advertise their affiliate programs to interested affiliates who sign up in the network for free. Third party affiliate program networks are helpful since they provide you with access to a large number of advertisers (merchandisers) simultaneously. You can easily track and compare their sales records, performances, benefits, products and services.

So now you have choices, the next question is which among those options is the right one. Here are some things to consider in deciding which to take and which to reject. First is the quality of the products and services. As an affiliate marketer your goal is not only to make visitors of your site click the link to the business site; but more importantly, to promote the product so they would buy it. If the customers are not convinced upon going to the business site, then you don’t earn. Make sure the products you are endorsing are worthwhile or in the business context, saleable. Ask yourself: if I were the customer, would I buy it? Would I recommend it to my family or good friend? If you can’t convince yourself or your family and friends to buy it, take a look at your next option.

Another is the affiliate program or the merchandiser’s history. Look into their previous and present sales data, their proven and tested affiliate marketing systems and their partners’ experiences with them. Although, success of the program really depends on you, this one is still very important. The sales records don’t only show how good the affiliates are, but they speak about the products’ reliability, market availability and the company or the merchandisers’ reputation as well. Moreover, look into and carefully study the company’s compensation plan. Your purpose for joining the program is to earn, so make sure you’ll be paid for all your efforts fairly.
