"But I'm just an affiliate. I haven't got time.
I shouldn't have to write articles. I can get all good content I want from my affiliate programs."
That's usually true, but more often than not your visitors are after unique content. Writing your own articles can often be most powerful marketing weapon you use.
Believe it or not, your visitors actually want to read what you have to say at your site, not what other people have to say. They are looking for independent content that perhaps supports or refutes something they read on another site.
Besides, they may have already read all articles written by other people you feature at your site elsewhere on internet.
While it is perfectly reasonable and beneficial to feature "other peoples articles" at your site, you should also feature your own.
Here are 4 reasons why you should write some of your own articles:
1. It is unique content that distinguishes you from about 90% of all other affiliates. That's percentage of affiliates not writing articles!
2. People need content. For their web site or for their newsletter people are always in constant need for new, fresh content. This means articles that you write can be featured on other people's web sites and in other people's newsletters.
