Syndication is a really broad area which is relatively easy to jump into. It is far more than just putting an RSS feed or two on your site and then letting it be. It is far more than that. For instance one way to syndicate your articles is by submitting them to different article directories and then there will be other websites that look at these directories and may pick up your article and then reproduce the content with a link back to your website. Understand if the article is good enough that one submission to many different directories could mean that your affiliate marketing article could end up on hundreds if not thousands of different websites.
Another good way to syndicate your articles is to consider social bookmarking. You can promote your website and articles publicly by using social bookmarking pages. You use this in order to get people to like or love your site and in return other web surfers are going to see this and then follow the link to your site where your articles are located.
When you start syndicating your articles it is important that you consider carefully the competition that you have. It is impossible to get away without having some sort of competition out there. There are literally millions of sites out there that have topics that have some website that covers it. You should do a search about your topic and then review all the top ranked sites that cover the topic that is similar to yours. You can then in turn use this information to formulate your own plan of attack in which you make yours as different as you can from your competition.
You will also need to commit yourself to making a long term syndication plan in order to be successful. So sit down and take a real hard look at how much time you want to put into it. Don't overestimate the effort you want to put into it because you may end up not being able to keep up with the commitment. It's better that you estimate less and then if you have time to do more then do so.
Make a list of all the ways in which you feel you can take advantage of when it comes promoting and syndicating your articles. Go over everything on the list and start to refine it and go only with the methods or ways that are closest to what you want to accomplish.
You will need to do your homework well in order to sift through all the different kinds of syndication methods that are out there at your disposal. Make sure that your review as many different ones as you can and only choose the ones that you feel you can commit yourself to and that will be the ones that will be suit your needs.
