Hey reader, is your blog “thin” in information?
Is the purpose of your blog to educate your readers, or just to get sales?
Do you yourself really appreciate visiting a blog that only shoves product promotion your way?
When you finally do get a post to do well in the rankings, do you act like a little kid screaming “notice my stuff, buy my stuff. Or by this one here, or maybe this one ..” and the only people who read your site are doing it so you will visit their site…and buy their stuff???
Because, if you are doing that, if all of your posts are nothing but order pages, then you may be
An affiliate marketing site
How’s that working for you? Well, actually, if you have a bunch of followers into “shiny gadget syndrome”, then it may actually work quite well for you…or not.
Because, if none of those other people with shiny gadgets of their own are interested in buying your shiny gadget, then you probably aren’t making much money.
Tell the truth, affiliate: are you really happy? When you sell something as “the latest cool thing” that really isn’t “all that”, don’t you secretly lose respect for your
sucker customer…and yourself?
There really is a better way to sell on your blog. But selling on your blog is not the same as selling something in a store.
Let me explain
People don’t visit your blog to buy something. They read it to
a. Read interesting stories
b. Meet interesting people and then
C. To connect with you.
I’m not saying you can’t offer your product, and I’m not even saying you can’t mention something you sell in each and every post.
But the majority of what you write should inform, engage, and delight your reader….not show off your shiny new gadget.
A lot of very good affiliate marketers don’t really understand how to promote their product on a blog, lack writing skills, or don’t think they’ll be able to come up with enough material to write.
But there really IS a secret (a word I don’t use alot of, because it’s been used so much), there is absolutely a productive system to being creative, fresh, and providing continuity to your blogging experience.
