How To Write Content For Your Affiliate Site
NEED CONTENT for an Amazon Affiliate website? That’s exactly what I want to talk about today.
My name is Doug Cunnington and I’m the founder of Niche Site Project where I talk about Internet marketing, amazon affiliate sites, and project management.
So, back in 2013 I started my niche site after I came across the Smart Passive Income blog and podcast by Pat Flynn.
I got super inspired, and signed up for bluehost and created my site.
Now when I first started thinking about content, I knew I had a couple keywords that I wanted to throw in there. But I was thinking – how am I gonna do this?!
I didn’t understand the niche, or the topic. I had no idea how to get started.
So let’s go ahead and get into HOW to write content.
First of all, if you are trying to ‘copy’ any text – it’s probably not a good idea.
Another common question I get is about ‘content spinners’, where you take content that already exists and put a different spin on it. However – this is not something I recommend, any shortcuts you try to take are usually not a good idea.
When I first sat down I had a little bit of a difficult time…
I tend to have a perfectionist attitude, which is great except when you are writing content.
And because I kept going back and forth with the content – it took me about 8 HOURS to write a simple piece of content.
Not efficient at all.
Another tip. At some point you WILL write a product review – it’s just something that comes with the territory.
One of my biggest tips is to write other reviews, check out forums, Facebook groups, Quora, Instagram, etc.
Lastly, my BIGGEST tip is go out and find the necessary information on your niche.
Research the products, and find the information to put into your content to curate and put them together.
