Are you interested in starting your own affiliate marketing business from home? Let me show you how it is done. It does not have to be complicated at all. You can implement this really simple system and you should be up and running in no time.

The first step that you need to do is to choose a product to promote. Head over to ClickBank's marketplace and have a look at the wide variety of products that are available. Now choose just one product to promote. That way, you can focus all your marketing efforts on just one project, and you will get your first sale quicker too! Anyway do

Using responses on Quora tackles common objections anyone has to blogging, "I don't know what to blog about" and "I don't have enough to say." All you'll need to do is ask a question and wait for responses to come in. You'll be able to turn the responses into talking points for your next blog post, or like in my example post you can quote Quora users directly.

The steps described here can work on any question and answer site, but Quora is unique in its user base and its ability for you to reach an expert directly.

In the following example, I asked an SEO related quest

Asking The Question

Begin by asking a question. Make sure it's clear, grammatically correct and specific.

You'll also need to make sure that your question is unique. Otherwise you'll get no responses, get redirected to a similar question, have the question removed or moved to a different thread.

Make sure the question is categorized correctly. This way followers of certain topics will be able to see it in their Quora feed.

Once you publish your question, you'll have an opportunity to invite Quorans to provide answers. At this point, you'll need to sort through suggested users and invite only the ones that fit this criteria:

- Have many responses in the category your question resides in

- Good response rate

- Cost - are they free to ask or will it cost you credits

Most of the time I'll quickly scroll through the suggested list and only invite a handful of Quorans based on my criteria above. A better way to seek help from experts is to actually invite them on a one by one basis.

If you know who the experts are, look them up by name:

If you can't find experts, head over to the categories that your question is listed in and look up active users, especially those who have many upvotes.

For my sample question, I went into the SEO, PPC and Copywriting categories. I was able to identify experts within each category and invited all of them to answer my question. My invites went out to a total of 50 people. Just two days later, I received 10 responses. Take a look: How to Identify Keywords with Purchase Intent

What To Do With The Responses

Besides learning from the experts, share what you've learned with your networks or post the question and answers to your blog via the 'Share' link.

Another way to use responses is to inform and help you craft your next epic blog post. This is crowdsourced content that you can use in your own writing. Take a look at my previous blog post on how I used Quora answers to create a full blog post.

Show Respect And Give Credit

Before you start posting your questions and soliciting answers, you need to follow some rules. Remember, respondents are providing you with free content - so respect the time and effort someone is giving to help you. As mentioned earlier, use the answers to help inform your blog post content. Don't claim them as your own. Give credit or link to the original source. Use the answers to craft a compelling story.

When many people think of SEO, their minds automatically go to the actual practice of optimizing for search. Things like AdWords campaigns, blogging, crafting meta d

escriptions and more are some of the most common SEO tactics. However, before you jump straight into this implementation mode, it's important to step back and consider your overall strategy first.

Strategies VS. Tactics

When making any plan, there is a distinct difference between a strategy and a tactic. A strategy is your overall guiding principle while a tactic is the specific action that supports that principle or goal. Simply put, a strategy tells you what you want to achieve and a tactic gets you there.

(To see actionable examples of competitive SEO strategies, click here)

Every strategy likely has multiple supporting tactics. An example could be the SEO strategy to increase sales of a particular new product. Some tactics to help make that happen could include running an AdWords campaign to boost visibility, posting blogs related to the topic and creating a powerful landing page for the item complete with a killer meta description, page title and other on-page SEO features.

Balancing Investment And Payoff

At its heart and soul, SEO is a long-term proposition. Looking at it any other way will only find you sorely disappointed in your results. That said, not all SEO tactics are created equal. Some can be quite affordable and offer virtually immediate results. Resist the temptation to rely solely on such tactics and instead opt for a good mix of SEO activities.

An ideal SEO campaign will include a blend activities designed to yield results at different times in different ways. This multi-prong approach is the most holistic and natural way to approach your SEO. An example campaign might look something like this:

Level of Investment

AdWords Campaign
Quick visibility

Fast search impact, especially for niche terms

Evergreen Content
Long lifespan
Compounding, long-term

With a continual emphasis on a mixture of SEO tactics, your business will be well-poised to take advantage of more search engine ranking factors.

A Living Process

SEO is not something you do once and are done with. You must continue to "do" SEO all of the time. That includes reviewing your strategy and adjusting your tactics as appropriate-and not just in light of new Google algorithm updates. News or changes specific to your industry can affect your SEO strategy. The other important factor you must always consider is your own set of analytics.

Because some SEO tactics will yield result data faster than others, you must make decisions based upon this information appropriately. Sometimes you need to let things play out for a bit before reacting. Other times, immediate action is called for.

If you think of SEO visually, you should have an image of a circle in your mind. At the top can be your initial strategy and along the path are individual tactics. As you move around the circle clockwise, you will come to your analytics and review phase and then back to your strategy. This is what good SEO is and should be-a continual, closed-loop process with an eye on today, tomorrow and beyond all at the same time.
