Ever wonder how to increase exposure for your affiliate marketing site? If so this great RSS feed affiliate tip to maximize your traffic!

Most savvy marketers know that setting up an easy to follow RSS feed on your site can help get repeat visitors by allowing your reader to easily follow and keep up with your posts.

But, many people look over the benefits of using an RSS feed to source trending articles, topics, and blogs. Here are a few tips to make sure your personal RSS feed is helping your affiliate site.

RSS Feed Affiliate Tip #1

Follow others in your niche.

We all know the saying: keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Uncover the not-so-secret techniques your competitors are trying to stay ahead of the game.

Following other bloggers related to your topic allows you to keep up to date with the latest tips and techniques your competitors are employing. Most people occasionally do a Google survey of their competing sites, but occasional research is no match for consistent real-time updates.

RSS Feed Affiliate Tip #2

Get active in the community to establish authority.

As related blogs continually develop new content, you should work hard to consistently become a presence on their site. I’m not talking about comment-spamming, but participating actively in the discussions resulting from their posts.

Providing value on third party sites allows you to establish your authority more quickly than you can on your own. Using RSS lets you access the content more quickly, so you can get in front of the audience easily, and subtly poach the readers and direct them to your own affiliate site.

RSS Feed Affiliate Tip #3

Use trending topics to generate your next post.

A constant stream of updates lets you find patterns in article content in ways you wouldn’t otherwise think of.  Not only that, you can use the emerging comments and discussions to generate your own article ideas and quickly put out a trending topic while its still hot. This lets you respond relevantly with a link to your site and increases the chances your article will be shared within the community.
