Getting into the habit of keeping your webpage fresh can only improve your affiliate marketing and website ‘stickiness’. Writing quality content is one of the most important elements in good search engine optimization. It provides relevant and valuable information to your audience and can be news, company information, guest blogging, social media, technology or just announcements of your latest product and shopping recommendations.
Another tip is to make sure your operation runs smoothly. Do some research on the best CMS systems available. A CMS is a content management system that allows you to make frequent updates and keep all the content of your site in one single accessible database. A good CMS can make the uploading of content such as text and images very easy and user-friendly. The best thing is that you won’t be dependent on technical expertise. With the advancement of technological developments you can get access to open source CMS systems that no longer cost an arm or a leg.
I can recommend a great product such as Joomla – a leading open source software – if you haven’t already tried it. You can easily build a website, even a community portal, forums and a fully integrated shopping cart solution.
Another idea for good content is to review various products that you are marketing and ask your circle of friends to write personal recommendations. This offers customers real reviews from people who have actually tried and tested the products.
If you are considering expanding into new markets, it’s important to factor in the translation of your site or landing page to really make the most of the opportunity. Make sure you also create a localized landing page and you link it up to a comprehensive web analytics program so you can assess what works and what doesn’t – without this you could be missing out on vital business angles!
