Have you ever spent countless hours writing your next online article or blog post, only to get a few likes and not one single comment or share? What a bummer! We totally understand your challenge because we’ve all been there. However, with a few easy (yet effective!) steps, you’ll be well on your way to increasing engagement, writing captivating content, and receiving the feedback you need to get better with each post.
1. Create numbered or bulleted lists to make online reading painless and easier to scan. Since the look is different from the typical paragraph style texts, it gives readers the visual break they need to move along the page. When presenting multiple points, it’s a great way to help people find the information they’re looking for quickly.
2. Feature one idea per paragraph and make it brief to keep readers focused on the value without spending too much time trying to find it. Let’s be honest, most people are bus... read more
If you’re a content creator you know that it’s a noisy world out there and that you need to spend at least an equal amount of time promoting your content and getting it out there as you do creating it.
No matter how amazing your content is, it won’t get the attention it deserves if you don’t invest time and energy in letting people (as many of them as possible) know it exists.
There are literally dozens of ways you can promote your content online, but here I’ll focus on just one and show you how you can leverage different tactics to get the most out of it. I’m talking about outreach – a proven, highly effective way to get more traffic and more engagement for your content.
You could be reaching out to influencers, relevant blogs, business partners, potential or existing customers – anyone who has the power to give your content that extra push by exposing it to new audiences.
If your content is good and offers real value, outreach will not only amplify it... read more
A lot of affiliate marketers think that the bulk of their work comes right in the beginning – and that, as long as they find a great product, it will “sell itself.” If only that were true – we’d all be living on tropical islands, while our products sold like hotcakes!
While product selection is a crucial part of affiliate marketing, what you do after you select your product will ultimately determine whether you succeed or fail. If your work doesn’t include a great content writing strategy, you’re doomed to fail.
But what kind of content do you need? And, where does it need to go?
If you want to succeed in affiliate marketing, you need content in these 5 areas:
1. SEO Articles
Remember, the products that you’re selling are the same products that thousands of other affiliates are selling. Plus, you’ve got millions of other people who are selling similar, competing products.
You have to make yourself stand out, and the right SEO articles can help you do just th... read more

1. Improve your page loading speed
A few factors contribute to your page's loading speed. Google will penalize you for slow loading speed, which damages your ranking.
It can also negatively affect how users interact with your website. Consequently, those negative interactions will harm your ranking as well.
2. Produce high-quality content
How often does your website get updated? In the case of a website that hasn't been updated since it was built, you probably don't have a high SEO ranking right now.
It's crucial you keep visitors returning to your website if you want to drive more traffic and increase its popularity. You need quality, fresh, and relevant content for your website.
The so-called dwell time is another factor that impacts your SEO ranking. This is measured by the amount of time people spend on your website per visit. You will increase dwell time and keep visitors on your page longer if your site has fresh, exciting, or newsworthy material.
A long dwell time is often associated w... read more
