Here are the 4 Steps You Should Take Now:
1. Establish a Professional-looking Blog
If you want to make your blog an authority in your niche, you need a professional design. These can be done with free themes.
A Professional looking blog is considered more authoritative. If you don’t believe it, change your blog design into a cheap and ugly design and watch your conversions go to crap.
2. Post High Quality Content Regularly
For now just start with 5 posts with your last post including a link to an affiliate product.
Of course, you can’t build an authority blog without posting high quality content regularly. Remember, it’s by updating your content regularly that will make your blog an authority. Once you have your 5 posts and your "affiliate" post done feel free to tell us in the forum and ask for some feedback! You will be amazed at how much we can help as long as you ask.
Original and unique content is what will make your blog authoritative, and will give you a chance to get free traffic from google. If you copy content and post it on your site Google will know and you will NEVER get rankings. It has to be 100% original content!
3. Build Strong Branding For Your Blog
Strong branding will affect your success in promoting your affiliate product. For an authority blog, branding is important because it is what will make the blog authoritative.
In fact, branding is important in any business. Take for instance, when you hear about Google, what will come in your mind? Search engine. When you hear about Facebook, what will come in your mind? Social network.
If you can brand your blog so that people can associate your blog with your niche every time they hear about your blog, you’ve successfully made your blog an authority. And it will be easy to promote affiliate product on your blog.
4. Write a Review if You Have Used The Product
You started your blog to help people who are searching for a solution to their problem. Now write about a product and give them information on how this product can solve their problem.
