As social media experts, readers of Collective Thoughts understand that social media marketing starts with building content that’s going to matter to a particular social group. That’s the bread and butter of organic marketing. Anything that gets in the way of organic marketing, in my view, lowers the ceiling on the potential value of a website.
I think that the biggest mistake that new affiliate marketers make when building an online business is sacrificing usefulness for the immediacy of the almighty dollar. Now I’m not denying that you can build a successful affiliate site this way. But I am suggesting that if from the beginning all of your decisions are made for immediate revenue, you will most likely be setting a low ceiling for your website.
