Article Marketing: Dress Up Your Own Site

November 12, 2009

Article directories are a great way to submit high quality articles, have webmasters pick them up, and for you to reap great back links to your site. Still, all directories have restrictions and these restrictions can limit the number of quality links you put within the body of your article or strip them out entirely. If you run your own site, these rules have no bearing on how you manage your site. The following are some strategies I have employed that not only have given my site a Google page rank of 6, but have helped me to maximize my articles’ exposure on the internet.

Lots of links. My articles have a similar resource box to those found on article directories, but I don’t stop there. Within the body of an article, I frequently add additional links, sometimes lots of links to other sites. They don’t have to be to sites I run, but to other high quality sites. If I am writing an article about Ford cars, you better believe it that I have links to pages for the Ford Mustang, to the Explorer, and any other vehicles I mention. Google seems to like these types of pages as some of my articles are getting ranked high too. One article already pulled down a page rank of 4!

Add pictures. A picture speaks a thousand words… A picture can help your article look more professional. I also will use a company logo, if I have express permission. With some of my links and pictures I will hyperlink them to other pages on my site or to other sites altogether.

Welcome the robots. I mentioned in another article that Googlebot is my friend. Do everything possible to keep your site crisp, clean, and clear and toss out anything that looks spammy. Most of my articles also have the requisite AdSense ads on them in part for me to make income, but also to tell me if the ads served up are related to the article I wrote. Almost without exception they are, but you need to check back to verify.

So, why go through all this trouble? Hopefully, to bring in additional business for yourself. Most of the work that I get is  directly from my site, which I only set up on May 31, 2005! Not a bad track record, don’t you agree? If I can do it, you can do it too! What are you waiting for? Get started today.

Instant Reports in 48 hour

October 23, 2009

qualityCreate a High Quality Info Product in Less Than 2 Days

Here’s my secret formula for banging out information products in an instant.

In the Beginning…

Not too long ago I decided I’d quit trying to game the system with tricks and fancy “one-off” marketing that only worked until technology changed. Besides, none of that stuff made me money.

question-markSo I sat down and said: “What’s the number 1 skill that would make me money… no matter what the economy does… no matter what happens to me personally… no matter how technology changes… no matter what!”

The answer to that is simple:

Creating high quality, valuable content!

High quality content is the best way to market yourself. You only have to look as far as the latest, most successful product launches to see they all share one thing in common… they used good, high quality content to get the market place in a frenzy.

High quality content is essential for product creation. If someone buys your product, and it changes their life…
Then You’ll Have A Customer For Life!

All great info products require one skill… good writing.

How to Become a World-Class Info Publisher

Writing sucks!
It’s hard, confusing and just takes a long time. At least, that’s what I thought. Actually, writing is easy once you have a system that…

  • eliminates writer’s block
  • prevents procrastination
  • organizes your information into easily digestible chunks
  • forces you to write without having to pause to think…

Really, those are the only things that prevent you from being a world-class info publisher. If you removed these stumbling blocks, then the content will practically create itself.

How To Get Raving Testimonials From Your Freshly Created Info Products

presentationWhy do 95% of people who buy information products never act on them?

Are people just lazy? Stupid? Afraid to try something new? All of the above?

I believe that’s part of it. But here’s what I contend – the reason why most people don’t act on information is mainly because of one reason:

Most information publishers simply do not know how to present their information in a way that makes it easy to act on.

In other words it’s your duty to create a product so easy for someone to act on it, they’d feel like an idiot if they didn’t.

However, it’s hard enough for most people to even create a product… much less do it in a way that optimizes the learning process for their readers. Well, my technique for shortcutting product creation not only makes it easier for you to create high quality products at will.

It forces you to present your information in a way that guarantees the maximum amounts of readers will take action on it… and get great results!

When I first created this system, I used it to invade and dominate tiny niches. In a panic attack subniche, here’s how it was done:

The first week of each month I have my list fill out a survey where they ask me their two most pressing questions.

The second week I create a report focused around the most common question my list asked me in the survey. Then I sold that report to my list. I marketed that product until the end of the month.

Then each month I repeated the process and created a new product.

Talk about easy money.

I’ve also used these techniques to:

  1. Create free reports that include affiliate links. I then submit these reports to “JV Giveaways”, sites like Butterfly reports (where others market my reports for me) and other sites where people get my free reports and end up buying something through one of my affiliate links.
  2. Create reports that build my list for me — you can’t describe the feeling of entering into a new niche Monday morning, creating a “free report” by Monday afternoon and tossing up a squeeze page Monday night using that free report to begin building your list immediately. I do it all the time.
  3. Create PLR Products – I then license the master rights to these products to other marketers. It’s a good way for anyone to make quick money if they’re in a pinch.
  4. Create my own products that I sell from anywhere between $17-$97

lack-of-actionThe Single Biggest Mistake Which Keeps Internet Marketers Poor

I recently got back from a huge 4 day internet marketing seminar in Austin, Texas. What I found there where two groups of people – those making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year on the internet, and those who weren’t making anything.

There were very few people in between.

It’s a real eye opener to witness first hand the difference in behavior from those who make a ton of money online, and those who don’t. Without a doubt, there is one huge difference between success and failure. I’d like to share this behavior trait with you so you can make a ton of money with your own online business.

The first day of the seminar I sat next to a very nice, older couple that were struggling online. The problem wasn’t information. I’d later find out that they had bought a ton of courses and products on how to make money on the Internet. In fact, some of those products ran in the thousands of dollars.

Yet, for all the products they had purchased, they still hadn’t done the simple basic things. For example, they hadn’t created any of their products. They hadn’t built a highly targeted list that they could market to. They didn’t have a website which had been updated within the last two months. Nothing.

Their problem is that they never took any real action. The single biggest mistake that keeps internet marketers poor is lack of action.

On my plane ride home, I was reflecting on this with a very successful distract manager for a retail grocery chain. I was explaining to him that in internet marketing, you have a million choices. There are tons of excellent business models you can follow to make money. But which one should you choose?

There are a ton of different ways to create your own products. Which products should you create, and how should you go about doing it? Which markets and niches should you target? Should your headline be in blue or red, and what font should it be in? What about price point?

What I came to discover was that the couple next to me was so overwhelmed with choices that they couldn’t make any. A lot of people fear making decisions, because there is a great chance they might make the wrong decision.

Don’t fall victim to this mentally. Just act. No matter what the decision is, I only give myself 60 seconds to ponder it before I take action. If, after 60 seconds, I’m still not sure, I’ll flip a coin. Because here’s the huge secret I’ve found – It’s easier to correct a wrong decision than to make the right decision the first time around.

All the people who are cranking serious money on the internet take action quickly and on a consistent basis. You need to do that as well.

I’ve systematized a process for taking action and creating a product you can sell for money in under two hours. To learn about it, go to http://www.24hourreport.com

7-Minute Articles : Write Articles in 7 Minutes or Less

October 13, 2009

writing-an-articleHow to Write an Article in 7 Minutes or Less – Article Writing Guide for Internet Marketers

Article Marketing is the cheapest and easiest way to get traffic to your website or online business. However writing good articles can be tedious at times. Some people take hours to get one measly article done. I would like to share with you my formula for writing articles in 7 minutes or less.


The Secret for Writing Articles Quickly!

Here’s how it works.

  1. Open 3 research sites – this could vary depending on your chosen niche market.
  2. Skim the article to find 3 main points.
  3. Outline each main point with two “sub points.”
  4. Create an opening paragraph.
  5. Use the three main points you gathered and write two to three sentences about each of the main points.
  6. Create a conclusion. Simply summarize the main points you mentioned in the body.
  7. Proof read your article, and then submit it to the appropriate directory.

To make it simpler I have created templates for writing an opening paragraph, article body and conclusion. These templates allow you to write without every having to pause to think… and they’re also designed so each article remains 100% unique, and of the highest quality.

This method has nothing to do with plagiarism! If I were asking you to copy and paste lines from other people’s articles my title would have been “How to Grab Articles and Make Them Your Own in Less Than a Minute”.

Click HERE for more information on How to Write an Article In 7 minutes. For the sceptics I’ll even show you, in real time, right in front of your eyes how to do it.

articlesHow to Turn 1 Article Into 8!

Internet marketers and ghostwriters often find themselves writing several articles around the same keyword or topic every single day. Boring!

Save yourself the trouble of brainstorming ways to present the same topic over and over again. Here’s the secret to turning 1 article into 8!

Present the information in different, entirely unique ways.

Seems simple but you have no idea how much time, effort and MONEY this simple technique could save you.

There are 8 different presentation styles:

1. Straightforward Style
2. FAQ Style
3. Quiz Style
4. Step by Step Style
5. Checklist Style
6. Mistakes Style
7. Story Style
8. Profession Style

By combining my 7 minute article writing formula with each of these presentation styles…

You could…

Instantly Turn 1 Article Into 8… Almost Effortlessly!

You know what this means, right? You only have to do the research one time!

This would cut your article writing time down from an hour to under 15 minutes.

How to Get Rid of Writer’s Block and Write Articles Effortlessly

waystomakemoneywebsiteOne time I wrote for six hours straight… and enjoyed almost every minute of the process.

How’s that possible?

It’s all about what you focus on and what feelings you anchor to writing. By using special “neuro linguistic programming” technology, I was able to instantly be able to put myself into a writing frenzy… no matter what!

I guess you could even call it “brainwashing”. But I’d say you already brainwash yourself to feel a certain way about writing articles. Why not manipulate it so writing articles always brings you pleasure?

Now you can.

It works like this. Before changing negative associations toward writing, you first clear your mind of them. Now you have a “clean slate”.

The next step is to associate massive pleasure with article writing. You can use some simple questions and perform exercises to do that. This by itself will automatically make you a more productive and a better writer.

The final trick is to “Time Fold” so 1 hour feels like ten minutes.

The Secret to Writing Hundreds of Irresistible Article Headlines

With internet marketing and article writing you don’t need to reinvent the wheel. There are tons of resources out there that you could use, reuse and abuse!

When writing articles for article directories you need to have an excellent headline to get noticed. In fact the most important part of your article is your article title. Have a boring title and you have wasted an entirely good article because chances are, nobody would even bother reading your article.

Now, instead of getting a nosebleed just coming up with a good article headline let me share with you a technique I use to get excellent headlines.
Here’s my secret to writing article headlines that get clicks…

Digg.

Say what?

I use Digg.com to flush out article titles.

Here are headlines I found in under 2 minutes using Digg.com in a specific way:

“Sex Cuts Public Speaking Stress”
“Soccer Player Yellow Carded For Farting”
“5 Movie Fighting Styles Too Awesome to Actually Exist”
“Miracle diet pill with teeny-tiny side effect”
“3 out of 4 women now prefer a plasma tv to a diamond…”
I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but the most important part of your article is your headline.

80% of people will use ONLY your headline to determine if they’re going to read your article. That’s 4 out of 5 people. Imagine how much impact a few words can make.

So here’s how you make your article titles irresistible. You get ideas by going through articles on Digg.com, and then “knocking them off” by slightly changing them and applying them to your topic.

Here’s an example:
5 Facts About Woodstock The Hippies Don’t Want You to Know

If you are in the internet marketing niche we can knock off this article title to:

5 Facts About Internet Marketing The Gurus Don’t Want You To Know

Or we could be more specific:

5 Facts About Article Marketing Jason Fladlien Doesn’t Want You To Know

I was able to write an intriguing title just by looking at the first page of Digg. Excellent title but of course you know it’s not true – I would gladly share my article marketing secrets with you.

Here’s an analogy I often use: it’s easier to find a crowd and stand in front of

them than to try to attract a crowd to come to you. With article writing, it’s better to find headlines for articles that are already grabbing people by the eyeballs than to come up with headlines off the top of your head.
