Everyone recommends that you post your business to directories so that you and your new passive income affiliate marketing blog can get noticed on this extremely wide internet space, but jeez, it is a lot of work. I feel like lately we are just ranting and grumbling but hey judge us not, yet. Now we have written a list of directories, where we want to list our business, yes an affiliate marketer is a business, but look at the hoops and hooplas that you have to jump through to get listed on business.com

You have to submit an article. A long clever article which meets the rules and numerous regulations listed below… We just lifted straight from their website… Below…

We ask that you follow a few simple rules to ensure that your article is of the highest quality:  

  • It must include a minimum of 1,200 words.
  • It’s recommended that you include a bulleted list of three or four of the key talking points at the very top of the article.  
  • It must convey an authoritative, unique perspective and include actionable advice for small business professionals.
  • It must be 100% original content, meaning it has never been, nor ever will be, published anywhere else.
  • All content must be based on your own experiences and supplemented by research and/or third-party information, where appropriate. 
  • Ensure that your content is actionable by answering the “why” and the “how.” Ask yourself, “What would I Google on this topic to land on this article?” Then make sure you answer that query.
  • After reading your article, a viewer should not need to seek additional resources to answer their questions.
  • Make sure you provide readers with instruction. Without further research, a reader should be able to take the steps or advice detailed in your article and implement it immediately.
