Shareist Insider #7: Live from Affiliate Summit

Hi.

This week I'm in Las Vegas at Affiliate Summit West, 2013. There's a very strong theme this Summit of how to succeed for the long term as a blogger, publisher, and affiliate marketer.

I attended sessions titled "Is Bigger Always Better?" focusing on how smaller publishers can succeed and "Affiliate Strategies in a Post-Penguin World", illustrating that there's definitely a theme of helping smaller publishers rise up to be more successful.

The message: It all comes down to adding value, building a brand, and building a business for the long term by creating great content, and lots of it. See the recaps of the sessions I attended here: Affiliate Summit West 2013.

A perfect example of a small publisher who has seen some incredible success with amazing content is HarvardHomemaker.com. This blogger, Christy, got started just a few months ago, and she's already seen nearly a million visitors to her blog running on Shareist. Christy is a mom-blogger, and is very popular with the Pinterest crowd. One post got re-pinned over 330,000 times!

I've written up list of 7 points that I attribute to her success. Here's how she did it:

Read that for some inspiration, and most importantly, check out the HarvardHomemaker.com site.

Best,
Scott
