I published a review of APC Back-UPS Pro more than 3 years back on my tech blog. I had linked to Amazon.com using my affiliate link and forgot about it.
Someone stumbled upon that page recently, clicked on the Amazon affiliate link and made the purchase. I earned a $4.96 commission from that.
The commission is 4% of the sale price – $123.95. It’s not big money, but small surprises don’t hurt I did not publish that article to make money!
The power of online content is evident from such events. Every article that you put out on the world wide web is an asset and will give you returns for a long time.
Content remains to be king when it comes to digital marketing and will remain so forever. Blogging is here to stay. It will not die in spite of social media, online video and other content channels.
