My first affiliate article

5 replies
Hello all,

This is my first post and as much as I've tried to prep myself, i know that I am still going to sound like a newbie, because I am one. I have dedicated quite some time now to reading many books and researching SEO, advertising, passive income sources, affiliate marketing, etc, etc.

Today I created my first article with Hubpages.

It took me about a half hour to create and is monetized by a link for amazon, and a link for an e-course called Jamorama.

I would love to receive some advice, constructive criticism, and any tips you're willing to share.

Top 10 Reasons to Play Guitar

Thank you!

    Hey Shaun,

    Congrats on your first post here. As a fellow guitar player I thought your Hub page was really good. I would change your last paragraph. You want to promote the product. You don't want your reader to have any doubts about the product. I wouldn't say "pretty legit" and "hearing good things about it". You want the reader to feel you back this course 100%. It might be a good idea to even purchase it. Good luck Shaun.

    Thanks Chris,

    I appreciate you taking the time to review it. I was afraid to push the sale, and tried to aim for a more passive approach, but I bet you're right. I will adjust that paragraph

      Very nice!

      One thing you could add is how you don't have to leave your house to learn guitar. "Let the teacher come to you on your own time. For a great ecourse on the web and to get those chicks chasing you next week, go now to check out Jamorama" or something. lol

      If you can swing it, go make a video of you playing some diddy on the Guitar with some chicks at your feet and then add it to the hub. :p
