  3. Hi,

    Congrats on your earnings, sure paid promotion is important to reach more targeted customers. Not all the times, one can get a sale, but using right techniques can definitely land you up in a sale.

    Choosing the relevant product to the niche is one important thing and banging it on a buzzing environment is another important thing.

    It gets easier to sell a product which people might know about. One needs to have multiple things in place for an affiliate’s attempt to succeed.

  4. Hi Shamsudeen ,

    If you explain about affiliates products through your content, then it will be quite advantages for you. Because here user will get chance to know more about it. This is an excellent way by which you can promote your affiliate products.

    Your tips regarding content marketing seems to be a useful tutorials for the newbies like me.


  5. Glad to hear, Shamsudeen , that you’ve made $205 through affiliate marketing. Perhaps, concerning to Affiliate Marketing, I’d say that choosing an appropriate network is really, really essential as because for instance if you’re adding ads banner (aff.) of a seo tool and your site is based on a health niche then your visitors/audiences will not likely be converting as you’re promoting a totally out-based category product.

    Perhaps, thanks for the share 🙂

    I’ve kingged it too.

  6. Hey Shamsudeen,

    What a nice post. I can tell how enthusiastic you were when you wrote this post. Especially for the fact that you made $205 from writing content.

    I like the fact that you kept it simple to do. I’ve been on a couple of other blogs that talk about the same subject, and they overwhelm you with good content, but it’s overwhelming. I can tell that most of the visitors develop paralysis of analysis since they have so many options to choose from in order to carry out the value that was given.

    Thanks for sharing and I hope you’re having a great week!

    And again, it feels so good to know that you planned out some strategy and the result went your way – as expected.

    Thank you Sherman.

  8. Figuring out what visitors to your blog would be most interested in purchasing can be tricky. There are many people that only come to your blog seeking free information while others are willing to spend money for different products.

    Sometimes having a short survey on a website can help you get a better gauge as to what people would be willing to spend money on. That will help you to market products better on a blog.

    That, and putting up links to various products. Which products people click on the most are the types of products you should do more blog posts on.

  10. Hi Shamsudeen,
    I liked this article because it shows how important content marketing can be.

    Being able to write articles that interest the reader, identify with him and eventually lead him to your sales “buy” button are very important.

    You have proved that you can do this successfully, something that a lot of people cannot do.

    The great thing is that once you have achieved success once, you know what the formula is and you can repeat it to increase your income!

    Best Regards
