Wrapping Up

So is that it? That's the end of the top 10 list?

Nope. It doesn't have to be!

You can definitely make money on top 10 lists alone, even if you don't sell anything at all. However, there are more opportunities to make money from this template.

The first, and most obvious one, is affiliate links for each item in the list. If you're doing a Top 10 Products list, add an affiliate link for each item.

True, you shouldn't overload your pages with gobs of affiliate links, but if you have 1500-2000 words of content, 10 affiliate links isn't crazy. Plus, you don't have to load every single list with affiliate links if you think it's too much! Just do one or two of your higest-trafficked lists.

Alternatively, you can combine the Review Template and List Template, by choosing a "Top Pick" from the list. What's the best item on the list? Link to the product with an affiliate link!

You can also internally link to other relevant posts on your website.

Even if you don't have any products to link to, there are other ways your webiste can benefit. Instead of letting the visitor just close the page, ask them to do something!

  • view another relevant list
  • view a related review page
  • sign up for an email list
  • buy an affiliate product
  • share the post on social media
  • leave a comment

Your website will benefit from this type of engagement, even if it's not directly related to money. Clicks, shares, likes, subscribes - they all help grow your blog and your brand.

Hi Nathaniell

Thank you for the great training. Just curious, are you still creating your articles on the WA platform or directly in WordPress? If you are using the WA platform, which parts do you create in WA before you publish and edit in WordPress.

For instance - Do you upload your images while in WA or directly in WordPress? Do you create your table of contents in WA or directly in WordPress?

Thanks again,

Wow Nathaniell, anotherr fantastic, informative training segment. I've been reading this on my mobile so have found some parts difficult to see. It's so important that I'm going to go over it again on my PC lsterm The only question I have is that when I do best of searches they always come it at less then 10 , is this an issue . Jim

Nathaniel, I love these outlines and found through them I may be using my H2 Tag too early in my post as well as my table of contents. Thanks for an amazing tutorial.
