It's just that it takes some time to figure out what's converting and what's not. So first things first. Affiliate Programs & Affiliate Networks: What's What, And What's Not? Affiliate programs are also called associate programs and it's a deal between an advertiser and a publisher. For instance, if I've a created a software and is promoting and selling it via my blog then I can also generate additional income by inviting my blog readers to promote it in exchange for a commission. So let's say, if you referred a buyer for my newly created software product then I offer you a 50% commission (or 50% of the additional income that I have generated because of you). So if you refer more people to me then you make more income. That's why affiliate marketing is also known as performance marketing. And it's a win-win, right? Now if I have the resources then I can run an affiliate program by myself --- within my own blog or website --- and then it called an in-house affiliate program. But if I don't have the resources or don't want to manage it myself then I can sign up as an advertiser on an affiliate network.

Freelance Writing Tips: Everything (Almost) You Need To Know

Freelance Writing Tips There are not enough freelance writers. Seriously. Whenever I come up with a freelance writing based topic, I  mention that it's extremely competitive. If there's a writing gig on a freelance writing marketplace such as (formerly,, or elsewhere then there will be a ton of applicants --- even if it's just a micro-project. Today I have a perspective that contradicts the statement "freelance writing is extremely competitive". Over the past many months I have successfully failed to hire an affordable writer for this very blog --- no, It's not that I am going to make my blog multi-authored ---  I just happen to want to write and publish blog posts in a consistent way. You might already have noticed that neither do I write regularly nor do I focus on a single topic. I only write about things that I find interesting at that point of time. Therefore I don't have any plans to hire an army of content writers to publish 100s of blog posts a month --- like the Mashables and BuzzFeeds of the world are doing. I was just looking for someone --- preferably a contributor or an editor --- who could help me finish a blog post much faster. Because now I take several days to finish an in-depth or lengthy blog post (like this one). So I thought I could outsource the "writing" process and focus only on research and editing by myself --- to save a lot of my time and effort. And you know what happened? It never worked --- at least for me!

If you have been following my freelance topics then you probably know that I'm not a freelance writer myself --- but I wish I were one. However, as you can see I can write for myself but definitely not the way someone wants me to. And yet, I got a ton of writing opportunities in the past --- by way of guest blogging, SEO writing, web content, etc. and I was forced to deny all of it. :(

So what's the point?

Simple! You don't have to be a native English speaker or a best selling author to make money writing.

If you can write, then money can be made. Absolutely!

But no, that doesn't really mean that you can become a six-figure writer in few months/years just because you know how to write few sentences. It doesn't work that way at all!

The real questions are... Can you write quality content? Can you write content that meets the criteria or guidelines set by your client? Can you write error free (both grammatically and technically) content? If your answer is 'Yes' to all the above questions then you can become a successful freelance writer. Guaranteed!
