I'm going to use a Wordpress site because I know how to use it...
I was reading somewhere that a good way to generate a lot of traffic to your site is to create 20 or so static pages with quality content with good SEO for the selected keywords and try to rank on the first page in google for each of the pages as well as the home page.
How is this different to creating 20 different blog posts with SEO done in the same way?
I was thinking perhaps making 20 static pages on my blog as well as the blog on the home page - although this would obviously require a lot more writing for me to do.
The main aim of my current marketing venture is for people to opt in to my list in return for a 33 page eBook for free that I probably could easily sell for a decent amount. I'm then going to implement an email strategy to promote MYSELF and then recommend affiliate products which I hope will have a good conversion rate. This is just me testing ideas and seeing what works and what doesn't. Because this will be my primary way of getting income from affiliate and CPA offers, i'm only promoting affiliate products via a few banners on the website and perhaps the odd product review or something in a blog post. With this email marketing plan do you think it would be better to run a blog or a static website, or perhaps both?
And finally, i'm wondering what are the pro's and con's for each - static sites and blogs? Just so I know for future ventures, has anyone tried both - is there any point combining the two etc? I'd love to hear some opinions on this.
