It seems that a huge segment of the online content industry that had been previously vilified by “respectable” online “journalists” (use of quotation marks intentional and appropriate) is also finally being seen as another savior of online content.

Some are even trying to call it “commerce journalism.”

It’s actually called affiliate marketing. And it’s been around online at least since Amazon launched its Associates Program in the 1990s, but never given proper credit as a “respectable” monetization avenue.

Until now.

Introducing the New Synthesis: Get Way More From WordPress

If you’re an online publisher or content marketer using WordPress, understanding the value of great hosting is a must. In my 15 years of online publishing, I’ve found that it can make all the difference.

Page load speeds impact your visitor experience and your search engine rankings. And security is critical when it comes to malware, brute force login attacks, and a rash of other security emergencies that come with WordPress being the most popular CMS on the Internet.

At the same time, I hear people saying they’ll get better hosting once they start having a bit more success. Better to save money at first, right?

Logical … except you have to be prepared for success before it happens. If that big link, retweet, or Facebook share happens and your site goes down, you’re in a worse position than when you were totally obscure.

How to Push “Send” and Grow Your Business

Twitter. Google+. Facebook. Tumblr. Pinterest.

These (and many others) have become the darlings of social media. The press loves to rave about their features, droning endlessly on about upgrades, acquisitions, VC rounds, and user numbers.

Though you can gain a lot of good market information and make valuable connections from participating in social networking sites, don’t expect to sell much. The dismal conversion rates for social media pitches make sense — people are there to socialize, not buy.

When you run a real business, you need to get back to the old-school tool that even the social networks rely on when they actually need to do business …

Email.

But how do you build an email list in a world that’s tweet, like, and pin crazy?

There was a time — not too long ago — when you could solve your sales problems by simply throwing money at television, print, and radio ads.

And that approach can still work … if you’ve got a lot of time and a lot of money.

Your potential customers could not care less about how “creative” your ads are … but if you regularly give them the useful, interesting, and relevant content they’re already looking for online, you (and your business) can win.

So, how do you give your prospects what they want?

Fact: Email is still (by far) the most profitable online sales channel.

That means an essential aspect of your audience is the segment that trusts you with their primary email address. So, it seems fair to say that enticing your prospective customers and clients onto an email list is crucial.

Once you start building that list, you always want more. It’s like crack, really.

Email subscriber count crack, to be exact.
