Surely, your blog is a presentation of knowledge, sharing of ideas and is a source of entertainment. So, it’s without out a doubt that your theme should suite your interest whether you are a business owner, personal blogger or affiliate. What does it really mean to choose a theme that suites your interests? Well, let’s break it down.
As a business owner who blogs about your products and services, you want to be professional. However, you still want to have good presentation and style. When you choose a theme, your them can have a few key elements. One element is responsiveness. What does that mean? Well your theme needs to be viewable on all devices may they be phones tablets, or a computer. The second element is that your blog theme should complement your website. For example, I have the My Sunny Ads and Ad board blogs in this network. Each of my blogs has headers that roughly match their perspective sites. Even though the theme of my blogs doesn’t look like my advertising sites, they still have a similarity in header design. The third element is professional appearance. There are themes that are great for business and magazine type blogs. The last element which is very important is customization capabilities. A theme should be user friendly and flexible to your needs. For a responsive customizable blog Corporate Blue and Asteroid themes are a good fit.
What about a person who has a personal blog? A few things can be considered when choosing a theme. First, what are you blogging about? Do you like fan fiction and Original Fiction? Are you in a band, are you interested in entertainment gossip or fashion? You can choose a theme that will best represent your personality and interests. The Asteroid theme is good for bringing out the artsy side of you. Plus the asteroid theme is customizable. If you don’t want your site to look like the main site, the Nevertheless theme is good and simple and will allow you to put a background image on the site.
Affiliate marketing is a very good way to earn extra income and build an email list. However, when you blog about your favorite programs, your blog can reflect the program you are affiliated with. Much like the business bloggers, you can choose a theme for your blog that simple, flexible, and most importantly, responsive. That allows your blog to load faster, and be more reader friendly to the average visitor. Plus, you can be creative with the design. Add a header and color scheme that reflects the program and you can choose a theme that allows customization for that.
As an affiliate you definitely want to promote your favorite Program or opportunity. You want to share good points about that opportunity that can help earn an extra income. Plus, these websites will gain website traffic. But, how can you present it and what can you post here at Blogs at YBC? Take a look at a few suggestions below.
You can introduce the affiliate program, product, or service to your audience. Give your audience a preview of how that service can benefit them. Give them a few points to think about when considering the service or program. The questions many people think about are “How can I earn income with this product?”, “is this program user friendly?”, “can I build a list with this product?”. These are only a few questions internet marketers ask when considering an opportunity. Plus, they want to know if it is good ethics to use the product.
Highlight the Pros and Cons
The right hand may be healthy and clean but the left hand needs to be examined. What does that mean? Every program, product, or service has a good bad and ugly feature. Before a marketer joins a service or even buy a product, the good and bad is always examined. The customer needs to know that the product they buy will benefit their bottom line. Plus, they need to know how they can earn as an affiliate of the product.
These are just a few suggestions on blogging at Blogs at YBC as an affiliate. Highlighting certain aspects of a site you are affiliated with can get the reader to consider the offer.
