I just had an excellent experience…
I joined the Wealthy Affiliate 30 day challenge. The idea was that the affiliate manager, Marcus, would provide personal coaching and training to a small group of WA affiliates. He would provide daily assignments that we would be expected to complete within a couple of hours a day.
So, I applied and got accepted to the program. As it turned out, I had already done some of the work that needs to be done at the beginning like getting a domain name and setting up a blog. The Wealthy Affiliate already provides thousands of hours worth of training so it was easy to get set up on my own. However, for those that needed the focused training, Marcus directed us to specific videos and training on the site.
It took me about half an hour to get my website set up with the tools provided by Wealthy Affiliate.
The next few lessons were designed to get us oriented to how to think about keywords, articles and blogs in order to get sales. I had never thought of the relationship between what I write on the blog vs. what I write about in my articles.
The idea that really hit home with me was that we need to choose keywords that we can get top rankings in, in Google then relate them with the articles and blog.
The blog is where we “close the sale” so we get paid. The purpose of articles is to provide so much value up front that the reader feels they would get even more in the blog / website.
When the article reader gets to the website, we are supposed to provide more of the “good stuff” that they liked in the article along side a temptation to check out more information on our affiliate product.
In the past, I would write good articles and good blog posts, but I would not link them like a ‘step 1’, ‘step 2’ process. It’s like building... [Read Full Post]
