This is a guest post by Donny Gamble. who writes a blog about creating wealth by combining Internet marketing with network marketing. On it, Donny explains why Internet marketers should have an MLM business.
Article marketing is a very effective way of bringing in sales and many affiliate marketers are already taking advantage of the method. Article marketers submit their articles and reviews to the following places:
1. Article directories
2. Blogs – their own and other related ones
Both are good options, but since this is more or less a blog about blogging, I’d like to give some tips to those of you writing articles on your blog.

If you’ve been following me for some time now, you know that I’m a big fan of membership sites and continuity programs as an online business model. Not only do they offer lucrative income streams, but they’re relatively easy to set up and get started. All you really need is passion for a topic, expert knowledge (either you or a partner), and some technical and marketing know-how. It’s not easy to make money of course (despite what the “gurus” like to say), but the profit potential is huge once things click into place.

I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of WordPress (version 2.8 just came out, by the way) – a blogging content management system that’s extremely simple and flexible, yet very powerful. In fact, I use it here on Winning the Web and on most of my other content sites. One of the biggest benefits of WordPress is that it offers a theme system that allows you to change the look and and feel of your site with a single click. How awesome is that?

One of the most frequently asked questions I get here on Winning the Web is “what WordPress plugin are you using to do X?”. I’ve been pretty generous in responding to emails and giving away my plugins, but unfortunately it does tend to take up a lot of my time. So rather than constantly answer your plugin questions, I thought it would be much more efficient and helpful for you all if I created a comprehensive list here. I’ll update it regularly so you get the latest scoop on the best plugins I’m using.

Every blogger knows that an RSS feed is essential to the success of a blog. RSS enables readers to stay connected and conveniently view content through other channels like feed readers, email, and mobile phones. It’s one of the key features that allows blogs to easily distribute frequently updated content and amass huge followings. In fact, # of RSS subscriptions has become the measuring stick of success for blogs (e.g. it’s weighted heavily in the rankings for IM Top Blogs). As a blogger, you definitely want to maximize your RSS subscriber count to increase exposure and accumulate a loyal following of readers.

Yesterday I received an email that every blogger dreads… an unsubscription notice.
I know I know, it’s just one subscriber out of many, and they could be leaving for any number of reasons. I shouldn’t take it personally, right? After all, trying to please everyone on a site is a never-ending cycle – like a dog chasing its own tail.

Whew, I’ve been extremely busy the past couple of weeks which explains my short absence here on the blog. Between SEO client work, some personal soul searching, and buying my first condo in Chicago, I haven’t had much time for anything else – including writing the Internet marketing articles that you enjoy so much here on Winning the Web.
However, my recent busy schedule did get me thinking about optimal posting frequencies on blogs. I’ve pretty much tried everything, from multiple postings per day to weekly posts, and my experiences of each have allowed me to find a happy medium. So what’s the best frequency that will yield your blog with maximum results?

As a blogger, the first thing you may ask when deciding to make money on your blog via affiliate marketing is, “what do I promote?” You may start with related products, services, and offers but forget about the goldmine right under your nose. Your WordPress blog theme!
Every blog has a theme or design and whether you like it or not, you’re promoting the one on your site right now regardless of what niche you’re in. So why not cash in on it? The WordPress blog theme market is huge right now and there’s a ton of money to be made – especially because everyone and their moms now have blogs.

A couple months ago, Stephane Grenier sent me a book that he put together called Blog Blazers. In it, Stephane interviews 40 top bloggers who “share their secrets to creating a high-profile, high-traffic, high-profit blog.” Some of the most prominent bloggers featured include Aaron Wall, Seth Godin, Yaro Starak, Neil Patel, and J.D. Roth among others.
It’s actually a pretty good book on blogging. If you need some inspiration, I recommend you pick it up for a quick read. However, there is actually one gaping hole in the book. I’m not in it.
