See my other articles on how to write effective articles and where to post them.
2) Write consistently Some people will briefly post a few articles and then throw in towel. What a waste. Not only do they lose benefits of viral effect all good articles enjoy on net (of getting posted and reposted all over place.) but they will also end up wasting a lot of their valuable time. Time is a very valuable resource, imagine spending so much of it on something and not then you abandon it and end up not having learned anything?
The other thing is that for traffic to rise and continue doing so, you will have to be very consistent with your posting.
3) Use keywords to increase traffic Ignore keywords at your own peril. Keywords are currency of online content. You will only enjoy 5% of effect or even less, if you do not pay attention to keywords.
Look for keywords that are rising in popularity but do not have too much competition yet. That way you will have a fighting chance of pulling in traffic from search engines, which is most effective affiliate marketing method so far. This can easily be done using search engines and testing various keywords to see what results you get.
The effectiveness of search engines is reason why many successful affiliates buy pay-per-click ads as core of their affiliate marketing strategy. However since you are doing your affiliate marketing with articles, you will need to work a lot harder to place your keyword-rich articles in as many web sites as possible. Done properly it can be just as effective.
For example 10 keyword-rich articles placed in 50 different sites and viewed by an average of just two people per day on average will give you 1000 hits per day. If 20 per cent of these people make it to your affiliate site every day that is 200 serious visitors a day. Enough to make most affiliate programs work well for you.
Please do not take these figures too seriously. It also depends on a lot many other factors which we will discuss in future articles.
