Blogs and RSS Feeds are Great for Affiliate Marketing
by: Craig Desorcy
Work ethic is an ingrained characteristic that pushes the hardworking people of todays society to overextend themselves in order to achieve success. Now let me tell you a little secret...working hard isnt always the key to success. In fact, the key to success is working smart. No, Im not suggesting that we get lazy, but hey who wouldnt want to enjoy success with just a little bit less sweat?
So whats the catch? Absolutely none! Working smart simply means using the right materials for the job. Even fairy tales have that truth incorporated into them. Remember The Three Little Pigs? They all worked hard to build their houses (though one worked harder than the others), but remember that only the house of brick was a success. It was the material that made the difference, not the amount of sweat.
Were not talking about fairy tales now, were talking about financial success and freedom - the big bucks. Were talking about the real world - the computer age. What is the material that will bring success to your virtual house? ...RSS feeds and blogs.
Jim and Tim were brothers, twins in fact. Tim was the hard-working fellow, while Jim seemed to be the one with the all the luck. Now, both Tim and Jim set out to become affiliate marketers about the same time. Tim set out with his normal diligent, all consuming style, and began posting links everywhere he surfed. Daily, he set goals, and crossed them off with a satisfied smile. Deep inside, he knew that he would come out on top of his lazy brother this time!
Jim on the other hand, began posting short daily blogs and incorporating quick and easy RSS feeds into his work. At the end of the month, when all sales were accounted for...you guessed it, Jim was the winner. He easily topped his hard-working twins income by $5000, and with only a fraction of the effort involved.
Fair? Of course not, but blogs and RSS feeds are exceptional advantages to affiliate marketers who crave higher web traffic. Yahoo! search engines love blogs, and the best thing about them is that they save you money while making money. Blogs will get you listed in Yahoo! directories without paying the inclusion fees. What a great deal!
There are many of these little bonuses that come with blogging and using RSS feeds. Use your time wisely. Instead of spending hours typing at your keyboard to create the perfectly worded newsletter that will most likely be gobbled up by spam filters, spend a few minutes to jot down a few thoughts in a blog and post the latest updates. Watch an increase in the results, and join the rest of us workaholics who are scratching our heads in wonder!
