For those who don't know about her, Missy Ward is an affiliate marketing authority, a thought leader and one of the founders of the Affiliate Summit conference. I was pleasantly surprised by Missy Ward's blog post about whether to build audience first or monetize right away
[missyward.com]. Maybe I shouldn't have been because what she advises makes a lot of sense! I always felt that building links first then monetizing makes sense because you'll get more links that way. But check out what Missy Ward advises and let me know what you think.
Bloggers always ask me my opinion on whether they build their audience first and then monetize their blog, or monetize from the start. Build Your Blog's Audience First or Monetize From The Start

Please read the blog post
[missyward.com] first, I assure you it's very good and worth reading. Then I'm interested in hearing your thoughts.
