An excellent article on the benefits of self publishing and writing your own content as opposed to always using free content and articles
"But I'm just an affiliate. I haven't got time.
I shouldn't have to write articles. I can get all the good content I want from my affiliate programs."
That's usually true, but more often than not your visitors are after unique content. Writing your own articles can often be the most powerful marketing weapon you use.
Believe it or not, your visitors actually want to read what you have to say at your site, not what other people have to say. They are looking for independent content that perhaps supports or refutes something they read on another site.
Besides, they may have already read all the articles written by other people you feature at your site elsewhere on the internet.
While it is perfectly reasonable and beneficial to feature "other peoples articles" at your site, you should also feature your own.
Here are 4 reasons why you should write some of your own articles:
However, when you feature your own content, you immediately 'stand out' and people are more inclined to trust you. If people trust you, then they are more inclined to buy from you.
For an affiliate, good content makes a site. Don't just use other people's content. Start featuring your own articles. If you keep adding your own new articles on a regular basis then people come back to your site again and again.
