Ok, I am no scientist by any stretch of the imagination, but after thinking it over yesterday, trying to wrap my head around it, I have decided to offer up an opportunity for everyone..of course, this means you!
Although I am a “newbie” to the blogging world, I have been around internet marketing for over 4 years.
Now, I am not sure if this has been done, or not, or, if it is even taboo in the make money with blogging world.
I guess I am going to find out…:)
First, this basically all started when I went to Ana Hoffman’s Blog, TrafficGenerationCafe.com, which is a great resource of information for…you guessed it..traffic generation. ( Really, what a great title!) Stop by there, you will find that Ana is a very caring, considerate and informed person that I find myself looking up to with what she has to offer. Good sound advice, well written articles and, very important..she loves to engage her readers.
Now, she had written a post on lousy internet marketing products, which you never really see anyone do that, list certain products that do not work and calling out the people that market that crap, taking everyones money.
Which also relates to my earlier post of online marketing scams.
I will tell you this, there was a lot of great feedback and suggestions to add to her list. I mean, she got a ton of comments, from all kinds of great bloggers as to what programs they had personally bought and paid for with their own money, eventually finding they were not what they were portrayed to be.
How often are you gonna find that kind of information? If you have been around internet marketing at all, never!
Ok, now stay with me, because this lead to me finding and reading a post written by Brankica, at Live-Your-Love.com on Human Spammers and how these low life’s work, basically wreaking havoc on all good bloggers and the lies they tell to get a link on our sites.
Let me say, that post generated a TON of responses from all kinds of top online bloggers. Believe me, they were more than happy to speak their mind and,
let’s just say, that particular spammer in question is probably very sorry he came across Brankica’s wrath…:)
To continue, (ok, I’m getting there!) I have also been introduced to another wonderful blogger named Lisa Drubec at The Friendly Blogger.com She is sooo cool, helpful, with an engaging personality and very knowledgeable in SEO, traffic and link building. (See, it’s all about specializing in your niche) Lisa has shown her willingness to help others (and me!) time and time again.
Now, I know you are thinking, “what in the world do these three have in common and what is the point?”
Here it comes….
We all need seo website blog traffic and we do that by deep links with other blogs, right? The easiest way to do that is find blogs in our particular niche, read and learn from the articles on site optimization, traffic generation tips and so on, then leave a comment of true value, something that coincides with the context of what they are writing about.
Do that wrong and you could be marked as a spammer yourself and you don’t want that to happen!
So finally, here we go…
I am proposing that we share what these and other good bloggers are making their money on, the affiliate marketing and online business programs that they themselves are involved in that will make money at home.
First, I think everyone will jump on this and realize what is important here. Everybody gets a chance to put their affiliate link, or permalink in the comments on this post. Not only will their name and blog url be there (linking!), but because I also use “CommentLuv”, their last post will also be visible, bringing good quality organic traffic to them…:)
Secondly, I believe that they will be honest, because basically their reputation is on the line here. If they suggest some kind of BS that really doesn’t make any money, well, I don’t imagine that will happen. Bloggers have too way much to lose.
Finally, we all win, especially you my friends, because we finally find out what the real, money making programs are without having to waste time, spending hard earned money on crap.
I want stuff we would let our Mom’s and Dads and family in on that they would be proud of and will make money on!
So, here goes. Give me your best stuff. Leave your comments, include a very short description of what is truly making you money. Share this with other bloggers on their sites, because we are giving good value, probably creating good down-lines, seo linking (VIRALLY) and traffic to our blogs and the most important thing?
Being honest with our readers and followers that CRAVE this knowledge!
This could be a total bust, but I am willing to go out on a limb and put myself out there.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
