So.Most people think when they hear or read the word “Affiliate” they think it only refers to products or programs to sell online or offline. You might also be thinking that’s the only thing we do here at PAC. Well, we encompass much more than this.
The definition of “Affiliate” is, says Webster’s Dictionary:
” To closely connect (something or yourself) with or to something (such as a program or organization) as a member or partner”
We “Affiliate” ourselves with many things – clubs, organizations, causes, missions, lifestyle and in so many more areas. And it’s true, PAC does promote Member Affiliate Products.
However, what we affiliate ourselves with more are bloggers, new and seasoned, helping them, even you, be successful with their blogging experience on the internet.
We do this by providing an “EFFORT” based membership where members participate in various activities that teach blogging etiquette , website design, blog content and creation, writing skills, and more, while providing support along the way.
Our PAC Expert Authors are affiliated with different interests as their articles will show. This is the wealth of PAC, our writers, their experiences, their perceptions, and the willingness to share it with you and our readers. We now pay our writers – which is very exciting …
This is what PAC is all about: YOU!
How did PAC begin?
“It would be nice if friends bought from each other instead of going right to the affiliate company …” Monna Ellithorpe said. And with that simple thought PAC was created 4 years ago now.
PAC is an extension of the Power Blogging and Affiliate Community (PBAC) on Facebook created by Lesly Federici about 5 years ago. PAC became an extension of the Facebook group providing a community blog where members could expand their blogging knowledge, expertise, and learn new skills using the internet through a community environment.
PAC is an “Effort” based community – meaning, through the activities we offer we “teach” members through the results they experience. What members learn …

This service offers member support and reciprocity by creating an opportunity to buy from our members first before buying from unknown affiliate promoters.
The culture radiating in the PAC Community is effort based, reciprocal, and supportive. When it comes to blogging, we are a dynamic group of people who generate traffic to each other’s blog , creating engagement by liking, sharing, and commenting on their content.

People often buy from or refer products to those they know, like, and trust. Being a member of the PAC community, and getting to know the quality of our membership through the Community Blog provides instant results of making new friends, increased online exposure, and traffic to member blogs.

1.PAC Expert Authors
PAC offers the opportunity for bloggers, new and seasoned to write for the Community PAC Blog.

PAC promotes author content on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms to increase their online exposure.
We also have a program “PAC Authors Pay Pool”where authors earn financial rewards. Apply here
2. Blog Commenting and Syndication
Part of the PAC System is to network with other bloggers, comment on their blog posts, and syndicate their content. This very action increases “ENGAGEMENT” on their blogs which increases search engine ranking and organic traffic.
We have a weekly blog share where members submit a blog post in our Facebook community and members visit and syndicate their blogs. We also have a “Daily Blog Share” another Facebook group where members and others (this is an open group) may post their blog posts.

PAC Contests aim to increase your visibility on the Internet! We celebrate and highlight the efforts of our members who help to build our community and the PAC Blog.
4. Member Recognition
PAC values its members. Membership is the “juice” that keeps PAC thriving. Through monthly “Author’s Night” where people can meet our authors, Highlighting and Spotlighting our members on the PAC blog, and randomly appreciating a PAC member weekly are ways to say thank you, give back to our members, and to increase their exposure on the internet by promoting their opportunities. We also have “PAC Member Profiles” which are similar to Online “Business Cards”.
