Like I said on page 1 of this training, 70% of the WA blogs I create I write like I do my website content. Not only do I do this so that it will rank well in Google but also because I will link to it from within my own website. Now I realize that this technique is more suited for those with Boot Camp websites, but everyone can also do this. Here's how.

Let us say you write a WA blog about how great Wealthy Affiliate is and why it is the best opportunity for anyone to learn how to create their own affiliate marketing website from scratch and earn money. Well in essence you are engaging in the marketing tactics of those in Boot Camp without having to do the Boot Camp lessons.

Because your WA blog will be indexed into Google for the whole world to see, your promotion of WA could land you a referral. You could also write a blog on your website about Wealthy Affiliate and how the entire experience has enabled you to have your very own website. Then you could link to your WA blog from a text link on your website blog.

On Sunday October 2, 2016 I wrote a WA blog called Wealthy Affiliate is Free for Almost Everyone, see above image. I did this for two reasons. ONE: To inform members that not all countries around the world can join WA for free. Seven countries are exempt. TWO: The main reason I wrote that blog was so I could link to it from within my website content.

I was promoting Wealthy Affiliate and mentioned the 7 countries that were exempt from free membership. As a text link, see above image, I linked to this newly created WA blog. This gave me a way to get people reading my website content to get into Wealthy Affiliate and get presented with the Join popup.

I have been sharing my blog posts and training as well, but have been slacking a little bit, when it comes to writing content here on WA. I am going to make sure I will speed it up again. Quick question: Does the same go for training we right, or do we have to use our affiliate link there? Blessings!

The same goes for training as well.

Just remember that a non-WA member cannot click through to the next page of a multi-page training tutorial like this one unless they are a member. But this could be advantageous. ;-)

That name 'boomer' is well deserved.....in a great way. Thank you for this refresher (for me, anyway); I sometimes lose sight of just how important blogging here can be.

Blogging here at WA is important and powerful if done correctly. Blogging just for the sake of writing something is not going to be effective at getting any referrals.

A non-member is not going to be reading a WA blog about inspiration or motivation or even my Sunday humor blogs and want to join WA.

But if the blog is touting the benefits of WA and/or providing information on ways to make money from home using the services at WA, than that would be a far better approach.

Thanks for the info. I wanted to do this by taking my WA blog article and posting a synopsis on my website linking back to my WA blog. Then I wanted to share my website article/link on social media, but I'm concerned that if they click on the link in social media and it takes them to my website and then my website doesn't have the full article and they have to click again to the WA blog so that I get credit for a referral that they're not going to click through. I didn't want to put just a link on social media to the WA blog and then they miss out on info I have on my website. I'm doing good to get one article written, let alone two and have just been trying to get more bang for my buck. Any suggestions on how to accomplish this without having to write two separate articles?

There is always going to be that chance that someone will not click through, but one is better than none in my opinion.

Depending on how you word your post and your blog, if you make your website post compelling enough that the reader would want to click the link to the WA blog, then perhaps that would increase the chance of a click through.

It all comes down to experimenting, especially when it comes to using social media for sharing.

Hmmm. I never really thought of the profile blogs here being a good resource to prompt more clicks. Thanks for sharing!
