As an affiliate marketer you have to be constantly finding an edge over your competitors or at the very least follow their lead as long as it is legal. Finding quality affiliate marketing tools is also a must. Blogging and using Twitter are two tools you should have in your marketing arsenal especially since both platforms are absolutely free. Combining these two blogging and micro-blogging platforms can help you bring a huge wave of traffic to your marketing campaigns.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is a blog publishing system written in PHP. All date is stored in MySQL database. WordPress is the official successor of b2/cafelog, developed by Michel Valdrighi. The name WordPress was suggested by Christine Selleck, a friend of lead developer Matt Mullenweg.
What is Twitter?
Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send updates (otherwise known as tweets) which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.
What makes these two blogging platforms so powerful is the ability to get your word out to as many people as possible much faster than you could have ever imagined. In some cases if done right can help you rank high by the search engines as well.
Imagine if you can use both WordPress and Twitter simultaneously to create a viral marketing wave of traffic.
Is it possible?
If you do your research you will find some excellent Twitter plugins that you can upload to your WordPress blog, but as an affiliate marketer your goal at all times should be to find the best affiliate marketing tools that will help you create an ongoing and long term income if you want to succeed in this business.
Along with the power of these marketing tools you need 4 important components to ensure success:
- Quality content
- Targeted traffic and a lot of it
- A list of subscribers
- Converting as many of your subscribers to customers
