Subconsciously what attracts you?
Do you ever assume something is going to be successful before you actually test and find out?
For me I started with SEO AD and my biggest takeaway was my ability to test different markets quickly.
I can’t harp on this enough. Niches are vast and deep, but when you are attempting to reach a market there is the product itself that needs to be a winner but also, which markets resonate with which products?
There’s always that need to be able to measure what you are testing and how the market reacts. Although Wealthy Affiliate positions themselves well by offering solid fundamentals, there is another level to reach, there is a more strategic way to approach creating quality content.
How to Prepare
Going into blogging and content creation knowing that quality is the ultimate goal is helpful, there is a way to increase your odds of hitting your target though. There is an assumption starting off that you will find a profitable pocket to cater to immediately. This just isn’t true, the best way is to test and retest in order to find the most receptive pocket of the niche you’ve chosen.
If I’m blogging about politics with the ultimate goal of selling a subscription to a particular newsletter/special report, I need to be sure that the undertones of my posts all lean toward a specific political affiliation that aligns with the reader and ultimately the product I seek to earn a commission off of.
Let’s assume that I am blogging and don’t have a firm understanding of whether building a liberal or conservative following would be best to sell a certain newsletter/special report. If I flip a coin and just start writing without being sure if my randomly chosen pocket will indeed buy, I may have wasted time and energy building a solid authority blog. The alternative is building a Test Site and seeing which of the different types of keywords, blog posts, offers are getting the most traffic and indexing well. This isn’t spoken about much in Wealthy Affiliate early on, but it’s the bread and butter of SEO Affiliate Domination.
I think using WA’s sound principles for authority blogging along with SEO AD’s clever strategies around discovering audiences, you can really combine the skill sets to take your effectiveness to a new level.
