When you need to make your blog pay off for you, you need to be part of some affiliate networks like Commissions Junction, where you can grab hundreds of products to sell and make commissions.

Your blog can become a home for these products, and you can make it look just like a regular ecommerce site, without you having to manage the shipping and delivery of the products, all you do is collect the commissions each month!

Well, it used to be a real pain to set something like this up.

You’d have to research the products, then get the code for each one, and then publish a post for each one.

Now we have the Commission Junction plugin!

Check it out for yourself, while the price is so low!

You may have heard about my giveaway that I did in March called March Madness Gifts:

http://marchmadnessgifts.com/

It was very successful, and many of my JV partners went on to do one of their own. We were using a very cool WordPress Plugin to help us with the
giveaway, it is called WPVenture and for a limited time it is being offered as a Warrior Special Offer (WSO) for a fraction of the regular price.

Check it out, before the price goes up any more. Also, on the same note, if you want to make your squeeze pages even more impressive to your subscribers, you might want to consider using this Facebook Optin App to make it simple to opt in to your list.

Finally, if you are having trouble making any sales from your list after you have worked so hard getting it built, you might want to read Steve Lorenzo’s
hard hitting ebook: Sexy EMail Secrets…

Watch the video on the page, it has nothing to do with email marketing, but it really drives home a good lesson about words.

Comment spam is the fastest growing issue for bloggers. It seems like the minute your blog is live, the comments come pouring in, people ranting and raving about how well written your blog post was, even though it is still the Hello World post that comes with WordPress!

Your comments must show that you have read the post you have commented on. If you show up, leave a generic comment and never come back, you are just like the rest of the spammers out there.

  1. Take the time to read the post. Comment on the content. Be real and use your real name for the comment. If you use your keywords, chances are you will be marked as spam.
  2. Be controversial! If you disagree with what you have just read, go with it. Tell them why you disagree, bloggers (most of the real ones) want some controversy to get others involved. My friends Ross Goldberg and Rick Butts once had a comment war where each of them held an opposing viewpoint that polarized the readers to choose one side or the other, and comments came from both sides in droves! This ended up helping both Ross and Rick since the commenting continued on each of their blogs long after the original post.
  3. Help the author. Offer suggested resources for readers to get more information (not your affiliate link or your own blog) that shows your knowledge of the subject. Often, the author may not have known about the resource and will be glad to hear about it.

Obviously, you can find other ways to comment that will be appreciated by the moderator of the blog you are targeting. By all means experiment and let us know your results. The more people comment on my blog, the more I will continue to look for reasons to write.

Facebook And WordPress

Want your Facebook Fan Pages to be an extension of your blog? How about requiring people to be members of your Fan Page before they can read your blog? I am going to be interviewing George Curtis and Evan Mugford on a special edition of “Blogging With Micheal” on Blog Talk Radio. Join us for an hour of high quality content on why and how you should be using Facebook with your blogging. You can listen via the web, or you can dial [(646) 478-0874] in at 1PM Eastern on Wednesday May 18, 2011. You can also listen to the recording from this page as well:

Hiring your first outsource worker is scary.

You are hiring someone you have not met and entrusting them to do something that you need done, but you really do not have the time to verify whether they have done the job or not, yet you have to pay them. This can become a nightmare, so you decide it is much better to just do the work yourself and you continue to be overworked.

But my friend Rachel Rofe has found a way to get tasks done without consuming her life with the problems associated with outsourcing. Without spending hundreds of dollars.
