Night time is usually my time to just let my brain run wild. It needs this time because it's hard for me to constantly focus :p
So I'm sitting here on the couch, thinking to myself, and I thought about affiliate marketing and list building.
For all of you affiliate marketers out there utilizing your list, which would be your choice?
1) An affiliate blog leading to sales, whether it be a review blog, or an authority blog. Use your imagination.
2) A squeeze page leading to an email capture.
EDIT: I'm not sure if the niche would matter or not in this situation, but if the niche affects your decision. Let me know!
The reason I ask this is because I know that a list is important. But I've never had a "stand alone" list. Meaning, I've always utilized both a blog and a list.
So what I'm trying to get out of this is, those of you who have been on both sides of the grass, is it better to generate traffic to a blog and make sales? Or generate traffic to an email list, capture emails, and direct link them to affiliate sales pages?
I've always used the two in conjunction, and haven't thought about which is more effective on it's own up until now. Let me hear your thoughts!
