By May 14, 2009 Bloggership

Today the popularity for a product is so important. If you own a product but you don’t have anyone to promote your product, you wont get a penny from it. Then exist this affiliate system. This is a kind of advertising but it is a lot more cheaper compare to advertising in advertising network.

This system is much more interesting as it is actually mainstream income for most of the bloggers. Some bloggers does not only hope on their adsense income so they will start to do some review on a products that might create interest to other people. This affiliate programs actually create interest to lots of the readers. Readers might think that this is a normal product review by the writers.

As a writers, the way you talk about the products is something that will determine whether your readers will get interested with it or not. So you actually need a little basic knowledge of it and describe it to the fullest. But be sure don’t talk a lot of crap inside. Or else people will think you are a crappy writer.

Then, after reviewing the products remember to put the product links which is usually the affiliate links at the end of the article. You can also put it at the beginning or repeat it few times to get more clicks. But remember too much links in an article will make your SEO not so good. Keep it at 10 links.

The links also should be change to other links that redirect it to the page. The simplest method to do this is by using web service such as tinyurl to convert the link. You can also do some simple code to do this but I’ll explain on this later on my next article.

Next, when you are registering for an affiliate programs, you have to know that there is 2 types of affiliate;

  1. Affiliate with lifetime income – which you will get income when people register on the people below you.
  2. Affiliate with temporaty income – this income will ends if no one ever click on your affiliate. Plus even there is people register with the people below you, you still did not earn anything.

The best is for sure Affiliate with lifetime income. But the disadvantage of this is its value is usually much more cheaper compared to temporary income. So you will only success whenyou have a lot underman. By the way you can actually choose both of it. The choice is in your hand and for me, i rather talk about anything as long as it helps.

Once you started your affiliate with other website, you gotta get more and more active when talking of a new products. The more you talk, the more you earn. But still, there is a lot of people out there is doing the same thing. So keep on working on it even you don’t earn a penny.

Also remember, if you make a review on an affiliate just make sure it is your own word. That will make it more unique and more catchy to Search Engine Spider. Hope with this article you could learn a bit about affiliate. In the future there is lots more article I will publish so keep up to date with me.
