A simple content marketing strategy can really help you get more traffic, gain more exposure, build your brand, and ultimately build a passive and residual income online.
That is your ultimate goal, right?
You want to build an income stream online!
There are multiple ways to make money online, but one of the most effective ways to do it, for the long-term, is with affiliate marketing and blogging.
Running your own blog online, will help you with traffic, exposure and branding, for a long time.
Affiliate marketing will save you a lot of money, time and effort – because you do not need to create your own products, in order to earn money online.
Do you see the tremendous power of this combination here?
Alright, now let’s jump right into Content Marketing.
The concept I talk about today is very simple.
Content marketing is a simple internet marketing strategy that will help you get traffic to your websites online, for free.
Unless, you decide to Outsource – in that case, you will need a good budget to work with.
Let me put the concept of content marketing in simple words …..
You create Unique, Valuable, High Quality Content, and Publish it online – VERY Consistently.
Publish your content on many websites online as possible, and link back to your main money blog.
That is it!
Here is an image to help you capture this concept a lot better:
Now, the content can be in many forms; articles, videos, pdf files, infographics, and even audios.
Any type of content works!
As long as it is UNIQUE and of HIGH QUALITY.
You need to really get what I am saying here ….
I’m stressing this boldly, because I often see people sharing very crappy, low quality content online, and they expect big results!!
Do not become one of these people, please!
In order for you to succeed with content marketing, you have to deliver high quality content for the people in your niche.
There is just no other way around it. So stop looking for shortcuts!
Yeah, you! … stop being lazy, and stop trying to avoid the necessary work!
If you want content marketing to work for you, very effectively, to help you build up the traffic flow of your blog, brand your blog, and help you take it to success ….
…. YOU have to work!
And if you do not want to do such consistent work, you are welcome to pay someone else to do the work for you.
But, you will need a good budget to work with here.
Do you have a good amount of money to pay people to create high quality content for you, every week?
Chances are, most newbies online will not have much money to invest in outsourcing.
And even if they do have some money for outsourcing, they will need to learn the right way to outsource, and what to outsource, so they do not waste any money.
There is a right and wrong way to outsource, as with everything else. So, if you plan on outsourcing, I highly recommend you to learn exactly how to do it, and how it all works. Before you jump on it.
Don’t spend money, just because!
Okay – here is another thing you must know, when doing content marketing.
Do not publish an Article on more than one website online!
You do not want Duplicated Content linking back to your blog. Plus, duplicated content will not do good in the search engines. and because of this – it will not get much or any traffic.
Make sure that you only publish FRESH, Unique, High Quality Content Online.
And if you think this would be too much work for you – then you can Outsource. And if you don’t have much money to outsource, then it will come down to HOW BAD DO YOU WANT TO SUCCEED ONLINE!?
If you think building a solid income stream online, through blogging, is going to be a piece of cake, especially at the beginning, you are only setting yourself up for frustration.
Building a successful blog online, from scratch, is going to take a lot of work, effort, time and dedication.
Of course, the hard work will only be at the beginning.
Once the traffic flow sky rockets, and you are generating targeted leads, and a few sales, every single day – things will get easier and easier.
I gotta keep it real with you!
So you know exactly what you are getting yourself into, when you make the decision to build an income stream through blogging.

You know, I used to think that publishing content on my blog, every single day, was the key to build a successful blog …….
…. I was dead wrong!
It only made me burn out, because I was writing a lot and getting very little results online.
So, I turned it around!!
I started to blog on other websites online, and only published content on my blog once or twice a week.
Now, this is a more effective approach!
