Blogging is big business, successful blogs have lots of visitors and can make money just by promoting other peoples products.
A blog is a very inexpensive way of establishing an online presence, the value of this approach is that you own the blog and the domain name and customise it to be completely individual to your business.
However you can do this even more cheaply by using one of the many available free blogs such as Blogger from Google. The idea is to use the blog to review a product and then drive traffic to the blog to sell the product via your affiliate link.
Blogger is easy to set up and customise and easy to use here is an example of one of my own review blogs.
Decide what type of product you want to promote and look for a suitable product on Clickbank, PayDot Com or a similar site and promote the product via your affiliate link which means that if a visitor to your review blog makes a purchase through your link you get paid.
You will need to write a series of review articles about the product or the problem that you can post on the blog and then write a series of article to post on article sites to drive traffic back to your review blog. The way it works is that you write an article about the problem the product you are promoting solves; look at other articles on the same or similar subjects on the article websites to get an idea of the style of writing and the content.
The traffic is driven by a clickable link in the resource box of the article that links to your review blog or the product via your affiliate link. Here is an example of one of my articles look in particular at the resource box and follow the links to see what I mean.
The more traffic you can generate the more sales you will make. The disadvantage of this system is that results are not instant and it takes a while for the blog to be indexed by the search engine spiders. You will also have to provide new content on the website on a regular basis about twice a week. This is a lot of writing but if you use PLR (Private Label Rights) articles as the skeleton of your articles or blog posts it will cut down the writing time to a fraction of the time to write from scratch.
You can pick up PLR article very easily; probably the best way to does this is to do an Internet search or sign up to a free giveaway event and look for PLR articles or products. I will post a list of giveaways below here in the meantime have a look and see if you can find some PLR content for a free review blog. More soon Rob….
