Super Simple Coffee Affiliate Site Example

Sometimes simple is good. Oftentimes simple things are the most enjoyable things, the things we love. Affiliate sites don’t always have to be super complex deep sites. Sometimes you just like stuff and you simply share with other people that like it.

Coffee is simple. I like coffee. You might like coffee. It’s a niche that I’ve mentioned a few times here on the blog and one that I’ve often considered creating a site for. Still considering it, might make a nice summer project.

I came across this interesting one page affiliate site (for sale on Flippa) and I really just loved the simplicity of it and the fact that the tagline is right up front about being expensive stuff that you don’t really need. [Read more…]

How Long Should Your Blog Content Be?

An often debated topic in the SEO world, a confusing sea of ever-changing answers for bloggers and content creators. How long does a piece of content on your website need to be to be successful?

There are a few problems with this and similar questions regarding content and length.

Every niche and audience is different.

What works for Audience A might not work for Audience B. Let’s think about BuzzFeed and HubSpot as an example. BuzzFeed content is short and funny, that works for them. HubSpot content is longer and more informative. That works for them. In each case they know the audience they’re serving and create content specifically for those people.

Many people are recommending that you not publish anything under 1,000 words on your blog these days. “Google wants long form content,” they say. I’m not going to argue about what Google does or doesn’t want, but I am going to suggest that you not plan your content around only that recommendation. Google changes their standards frequently and they don’t always tell us what they are. Write your content for the people you reach, not for Google. If the people like it, chances are Google will eventually like it too. [Read more…]

Answer the Questions, Even When You Think People Already Know the Answers

There’s no such thing as a question that is too basic or an answer that is too simple.

Just because you know how to do a thing doesn’t mean everyone in your niche or audience knows how to do that thing. There are different levels of expertise and knowledge in everything, some people are just starting out and others have been doing a thing for years.

Not sure what questions you should be answering?

Sometimes it’s hard to see the questions when you’re so far into something that it has become second nature. For example, I would have never thought to answer the question of how to thread a needle without a needle threader for my cross stitching audience, because it’s just something I do without thinking about it. Or how to put an H2 tag on a subtitle on a blog post, I just type it in while I’m writing. [Read more…]

You’re Allowed to Change Your Mind About Recommendations

Often times you hear people in the affiliate marketing world say things like “promote it or don’t promote it,” and “support it or don’t support i,” like you have to be all-in on every single thing that you promote. Sometimes people feel like once they start promoting something they have to promote that program or item fully until it’s over, done, retired, and gone.

You’re allowed to change your mind or your position, you’re allowed to disagree with things along the way, and you don’t have to continue promoting something forever and ever, you’re not trapped in some legal agreement and you’re usually not obligated to the program (usually, unless you’ve signed some long term contract to promote something, which seems an unlikely scenario as an affiliate.)
