Magazines traditionally made money by selling ad space to advertisers and selling subscriptions to their readers.
But these days who needs to pay for a magazine subscription when there is SO much information available online to digest?
It’s why we walk around with one of these in our hands as if we can’t live without it.
And it is killing the print magazine business. (But that’s good news for us!)
They’ve gotten into affiliate marketing.
I’ve noticed this for quite some time. Even the smaller, local news websites in my area have been adding affiliate links to their articles.
Now, a part of me sees that and says “Wow, we affiliates are in trouble if all the big guys are going to get into affiliate marketing.”
But there’s another part of me that says “We affiliates know a few things that can help us grab onto this strategy and make some good money!”
(That second me is the one I listen to most because she’s always served me pretty well.)
What my research uncovered is that the every day affiliate marketer can build a solid, high-quality, online magazine quickly because we have several things going for us.
– 1 –
We know that focusing narrowly on a niche can help us get killer rankings more quickly than building a website about a broad set of topics.
– 2 –
WordPress has some amazing, free, magazine-site themes available.
– 3 –
High quality images are the glue that keep a reader’s attention. Fortunately, a wealth of FREE magazine-quality images now sitting on one website are just waiting for us to use them in our website posts.
