Increase your affiliate income by leveraging your writing

There is a lot of advice around for anyone engaged in affiliate
marketing, but much of it is un-focused and lacks integration.

We are told that we need original, focused, keyword-rich content
for our website if it is to attract search engine "crawlers" and
targeted visitors.

We are encouraged to update our affiliate marketing blog
daily because search engines love regularly updated, keyword-rich

We are advised to create a regular (at least weekly), personalised
ezine for our mailing list and to include articles about affiliate

We are admonished to send regular messages to our often-forgotten
downlines in affiliate programs and traffic exchanges.

We are told that writing original articles and submitting them to
article directories is a desirable form of viral marketing for
affiliate marketers.

We are urged to post to the forum of our affiliate program as
well as other forums associated with affiliate marketing.

Who has the time to do all these affiliate marketing activities?
Where are you going to find the time as a part-time affiliate

One possible solution is to leverage your writing - make one
piece of writing serve multiple purposes.

So you have just created a post for your forum. Why not adapt
that post for your blog posting or create an article from the
post? You have written an article for your ezine, why not submit
it to article directories and/or send it to your affiliate
program downline?

Even if your posting to the forum is not adequate for an article,
you might use the title or core concept for an article. You
could add the title to your "article ideas" repository -
a spreadsheet, Notepad, word document or your mobile phone

Recently, I created an article for submission to article
directories. I then added this article to my “emarketing
articles” blog (to gain subscribers to my ezine), included it
in my weekly ezine, sent an abbreviated version to my downlines
in my affiliate programs and traffic programs and extracted some
content for inclusion in a forum posting and a posting to my
“affiliate programs” blog.

If you start thinking in terms of leveraging your writing, you
will be surprised by what you can achieve from just one original
piece of writing.
