Hello, today I’m going to talk about how to share an article and earn money with affiliate marketing!
Affiliate marketing is when someone clicks on a link, goes to a webpage and buys something. Because they went through your link you get paid.
Article marketing used to be very big 10 years ago when I got started, nowadays there are many other avenues of getting traffic, but articles and blogs can still be a great weapon.
Plus, what is so great about articles is you can re-use your articles to make videos, podcasts, Ebooks, posts and many other things.
The first thing I do with an article is pick the keyword to go after. I go after not very competitive keywords that get a lot of traffic, this is most of the battle.
I use the free tool Google Keyword Planner to find how much traffic a keyword gets. To see the competition I put the keyword in quotes and type it into Google. Ideally I go after terms that have less than 1,000 competing pages that use those exact words. I like to keep things very simple.
You want that keyword in your title, first sentence, last sentence and in your tags.
Let’s talk about where to submit your article. A great place is with Linkedin articles and this is because so many people use Linkedin. A few tips, it helps if you can upload a picture, plus if you created a YouTube video you can upload that as well.
Breaking up your text, really is a must when writing. Lastly, use the quotes button to make important points very big to draw your reader back into your writing, because most people skim articles.
Oh, and make sure you use as many tags as you can because people can find your article based on your tags in Linkedin. You can use a free tool called display purposes.
The next place is Medium.com. I love Medium and have gotten a lot of traffic with that site. Oh, and before I forget make with all your articles and videos to include your link to get someone to an optin page where you can capture their email address at the end.
The third place I recommend is Quora. Now, Quora is a popular question and answer website that allows allows you to submit an article. This article is searchable in their search engine, which is why it can be a great idea.
One tip and I just learned this is to use topics. There are 3 dots at the bottom of your blog post and here you can type it different topics that can help your article get found.
Those 3 are good sites you can get traffic from. I’m starting to experiment with a few others. One I like is sites.google.
The reason I love it is because it’s owned by Google and I’ve read only that Google favors it for it’s search engine.
When it comes to SEO domain trust is a factor, plus how long people stay on your article and why you want to put the keyword in the title, tags, first sentence and last sentence.
