Why is this the case? That even after decades, no matter the medium, content is still the crux of good marketing?

It’s What Builds Loyalty

Businesses aren’t built on first-time visitors. Companies like the Wall Street Journal don’t make most of their money from people picking up their papers for the first time.

They make money from people who’ve read their content and then decided it was good enough that they either want to purchase again or subscribe to a subscription. If the business had to get a new customer every time in order to get paid, they’d all have gone under by now. Continue reading “Why Content Is Still King!”

How can you make affiliate marketing work for you? And is it possible to have a successful affiliate marketing strategy to make the effort worth your while? You bet. So here are a few tips to keep in mind. These will help you on your way to achieving success in affiliate marketing.

1. Identify the Market Demand:

Demand for products does not indicate ‘trendy.’ Learn what ‘Green’ products are to help know the difference.

When it comes to online affiliate marketing, it would be in your best interest to offer a range of products and/or services to clients. Most stores don’t get rich by only selling one thing to people, so why should it be any different in the online world? That said, start with one. Focus on that product until you are successful. Then begin to add to your portfolio.
