    If you intend to focus on affiliate marketing, do you really need a blog?

    If yes, how would you start with a new blog and grow it fast in 2019?

    If the content is unique to the world of internet, yes why not!!!

    That's a very solid point but I have a question about that.

    How can you be really unique? After all, you can only research from other sources and write your stuff, right?

    @Ron C , technique like Data mining will not generate Google algorithm interest.

    But unique content yes!!

    To be unique you don't need to do research. Simply open a notepad and start typing with a content from your heart and mind.

    Blogs are great. Even if you don't have a blog, you might still need a landing page if you're trying to sell a product.
    Without a blog, your only options are driving traffic from social media pages/accounts, like FaceBook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, etc.
    Usually, you won't just advertise your affiliate link as it is against the rules on most affiliate programs. That's why you'll send the traffic to your landing page where you have a description (article) with the affiliate link.

    So, what you are saying is, landing page is all I need? Blog can be done though?

    Yeah, true indeed. I mean, a website is always required but I was talking from the business feasibility POV.

    A blog is feasible every other time, whether its in 2019 or 2020. A blog is very important for affiliate marketing since you can create posts related to your preferred niche and creatively share on social media. That way, you stand a chance of getting more converting traffic than if you don't have a blog

    I think as long as Google is around then a blog is a good idea. I've read some of the posts above and they both showcase how having a blog can help you drive your traffic from different sources back to one centerpiece. You can use your blog to send your social media outlets there, you can use your blog to rank in Google with SEO and you can use your blog as another way to tie together all the offers you're pushing into one common place-your blog

    To date, there are more than 500 million blogs out of 1.7 billion websites in the world. Their authors account for over 2 million blog posts daily.

    Do you like those odds?

    That was not my point. Google will still be there and it can still be dominated by large business organizations with deep pockets. The question is, is it worth it for average affiliate marketers like us?

    That's the very reason why I asked this question. How do you promote?

    A. Market segmentation
    Find a profitable point of interest to create any SEO traffic would be one way.​
    B. Advertising segmentation
    Find a market interested in your content; or, curate content for that market.
    In other words, find the markets that you will stand out in -- easier said than done but possible.
    Otherwise, you will be like a leaf in a forest of trees ...

    Yeah! Creating content really helps you! It might not be easy to be successful with your blogs. But there is a chance to work out as long as you write unique content and update your blogs regularly.

    It always helps if you're REALLY knowledgable about your niche. I think that's really the only way you can provide unique content.

    You will need to build a following on facebook, instagram. After all bloggers are now called influencers, so blogs are still relevant in 2019
