Become A Blogging Super-Affiliate!

Joe Ratliff invited me to do an interview earlier this week on affiliate marketing, and specifically on promoting affiliate programs using a blog. He has posted the MP3 recording of this call publicly, and you can listen online or download the file here (no charge):

How to Monetize Your Blog With Affiliate Programs

This is a quick & fun 30-minute interview, so you can easily listen in while you're working. We talked about how to successfully promote affiliate programs on blogs, and also how to monetize blogs in general. I shared my #1 tip for getting higher click-through's and conversion rates, as well as...

  • How much time you should invest in your blog before you begin seeing consistent results.
  • The reason that being "objective" is SO important, and how to pull it off successfully.
  • Why being negative is not always a negative.
  • What causes your readers to be skeptical of you and how to avoid it.

I also shared 3 of my best - tried & true - Blog Marketing strategies...

  • How to get readers (and search engine spiders!) to return to your blog more often - as often as daily.
  • The 2 things you should include in every post title.
  • The ONE thing you must conclude every blog post with.

Towards the end you'll learn my simple little exercise to backtrack and monetize archived blog posts at the end of every month. And you'll hear one example of how to write one blog post to target two entirely different markets - successfully!

Again, you can download the MP3 or listen to the interview online. You'll find it free on Joseph Ratliff's blog. Enjoy!

  1. Jacquelyn says:

    Oh I am interested in hearing this but I was wondering if it would be in a formatted script later?

  2. Do you mean a PDF file, so that you can read it instead of listen in? That could be arranged...

  3. Strategies for online network marketing says:

    A good list of ideas for anyone. Yes, just like Jacquelyn I will also like a PDF format. It will be nice to have one.

    Thanks for sharing...

  4. Jacquelyn says:

    Yes exactly... πŸ™‚ sometimes its just easier to read than listen....

  5. Lynn,

    Wonderful interview! I enjoyed it and appreciated your insight.

    You always do a great job in audio (you're a natural) and it would be nice to hear you more often.

    Suggestion: How about adding some audio tips and advice on Cliknewz?

    You wouldn't have to do podcasts and major audio productions - just some short blurbs every now and then as you expound on something with your chipper self.

    My best,

    πŸ˜‰ Robert

  6. Nell Taliercio says:

    Oh Lynn, this call is devine. I've gotten so much out of it and really enjoy your interviewing style.

  7. joyangel123 says:

    This very good information. A PDF file os also a very good idea. Some people to reading. Your ideas are right on the money.


  8. Glad you all enjoyed it - I had great fun doing it!

    I'll definitely take your suggestions into consideration - both creating a PDF download to go with this interview, and also adding more audio to ClickNewz.

    And Robert - I do offer a free weekly Webinar where I interact live with my readers, so try to join us one Tuesday if you can!

  9. Free Webinars? Where have I been?

    Are they available to download in MP3 format?

    EVERY night is the rowdy monkey-show with my two young boys! I'd never be able to enjoy one live.

    Thanks πŸ˜‰ Robert

  10. As always, very usable information presented in a professional yet easy to understand way.

    It gave me the kick in the pants I needed to start blogging much more often.


  11. The webinars are held at Noon EST on Tuesdays, so if you're free during the day then join us.

    I do archive the MP3's for Elite Members at the SSWT Forum, though the last 2 have not been uploaded yet - I'm working out some technical difficulties. They should be up this week though (fingers crossed) πŸ˜‰

  12. Internet Marketing Tips says:

    Very nice interview. I was just pondering my future with my blog today, and thanks to you, it is back to the grind.

    It got me fired up again!!

  13. Sandy Naidu says:

    Enjoyed the interview Lynn...As always you have inspired me and have given me a lot to work on.


  14. Thank you - I'm really glad you guys enjoyed this one! I'm working on the PDF file, so stay tuned for that - and of course I'm open to suggestions for future topics.

  15. Joseph Ratliff says:

    Well Lynn...

    Looks like you are a star again! πŸ™‚

    It was such a pleasure to do the interview with you, and thank you for the link. ClickNewz is on my blogroll.

    Joseph Ratliff

    P.S. I am thinking we may have to do this again. πŸ™‚

  16. Definitely, Joseph πŸ˜‰ Thank you for putting this together and coming up with such a fun topic. I look forward to the next one!

  17. Thanks for making the interview available. I have listened to it twice and still thinking of listening more.

    The tips and insights you provided in the interview really ring a bell. The myths and pitfalls you shared are all very true!

    Hope there are more of such interviews as I am from another part of the world and may not be able to join the webinar happening at a weird hour at this part of the world!


  18. I'll keep that in mind, Josiah. And if anyone has a topic and would like to host the interview (I'll handle the technicals), just let me know. I'll certainly consider any requests.

  19. Maury Watkins says:

    Hi Lynn, I signed up for your elite membership about 2 weeks ago. Where and how do I login.


  20. I just sent you an email πŸ˜‰

  21. Maury Watkins says:

    Hi Lynn,
    Regarding your e-mail and my elite membership, when I click link and try to register I receive an error message saying I am verified member. My name is Morris(Maury) Watkins, Whittier, Ca and the final 4 digits of my cr card are 9925. Please let me know what's wrong.

  22. If you have your registration confirmation, where you originally registered, forward that to me by email - that will have your username on it. In the meantime, I am going to run a search on the database using your email address and see if that turns up your account. Thanks!

  23. Dearest Lynn,

    Please help me to confirm the time in Singapore. What time would it be here if it's noon EST U.S.? Thanks a million.


  24. This interview was done last week, and can be downloaded here. πŸ™‚

  25. I tried to download the audio and/or the pdf to read later. None of it worked. Instead, I was sent to an ad for a course. Can you get in touch with me? I'd like to hear this and also exchange blog links for our blogrolls.
