Article Marketing is a Digital Cash Cow

November 11, 2009

One of the newest ways to draw traffic to a website is by an internet marketing technique known as Article Marketing. There are three things that assist a website in being successful, popularity, navigation, and content. Navigation is in the hands of the Webmaster. Whereas popularity and content is the responsibility of the website owner. Article marketing helpsthese last to two to excel. The internet is controlled by search engines and they are information junkies. And like anyjunkie they are forever in pursuit of a new fix. Knowing how to take an article and distribute it to your advantageis a present day necessity. Because when a search engine gets high on some content it rewards its owner by promoting awebsites ranking which generates the ever welcome organic (free) traffic. And traffic is the life supporting blood ofinternet prosperity.

Article marketing needs obviously articles to operate. Unlike articles one might find in newsstands and magazines internet content has specific requirements to have any real value. Since search engines locate information requests from internet users by using a system utilizing keywords internet articles must incorporate keywords into the body of written content. Understanding how to create articles with the proper amount of keyword density is not accidental. If one has not taken the time to research this needed article marketing requirement they should seriously consider hiring professional writers to accumulate needed content. Placing articles void of this keyword density necessity on their websites or to Article directory’s do so in vain.

One key components of article marketing is the submitting of content to Article Directories. There are hundreds if not thousands of these type of directories on the internet. These directories act as a source for website owners to find fresh content for their own websites or newsletter. The more directories one submits there articles to the more exposure a website gets. Search engines favor large sites when indexing. By having an article in directories the search engines will visit your website more frequently. And if the content pleases the expectations of the search engines it will improve where you rank with other websites promoting the same services or products.

When submitting to Article Directory’s each article is usually allowed to include an author’s resource box. This resource box is another important area to understand to make article marketing meaningful. The resource box allows the reader to know who wrote the article and how to find them if so desired. Because of copy write laws it must be included anywhere the article is placed on the internet. In this resource box an anchor texted URL is placed in it which not only makes it easy for the reader to click to your site but when placed on another website creates a back link. As the article is used more and more on the internet these back links start to increase the popularity of a website. At least thats how the search engines will register these numerous locations. When submitting articles to directories be sure to use different formats.

Experiment to see which type of format is generating clicks. Good article marketing requires intelligent labor. To run a successful article marketing campaign one must be consistent and quality conscious. When you first start a campaign consider submitting at least one article a day. This will quickly increase back links. After the first month you can slow down a bit but never stop. Article marketing succeeds because of its creating a viral effect. It behaves like the well known pyramid game. An article once it spreads starts to create back links in an ongoing exponential fashion.

However, the more it appears the less value it has with the search engines. Nevertheless even though its value for improving search engine ranking diminishes it still grows in value for generating traffic. Another thing to be sure to do is proof read the articles before submitting them. Good article marketing needs good grammar too. The better your article appears the more credibility it will get. And the more credible the more readers will trust the source.

Article marketing can be very time consuming because you will want to spread your articles to as many article directories as possible this will suck up a lot of time. This dilemma can be resolved a couple of ways. One way is to engage the services of businesses that specialize in doing this for you. This will save you time but many of these services ,the better ones, can be pricey. Another way is to purchase software that is designed to submit articles. Normally they have hundreds of directories catalogued in there application. Many directories have automated receiving plug-ins that will automatically except submissions. However, many don’t allow automatic submission from software devices. So mix it up. Submit your articles to the major directories personally then use the software to contact the rest.

Regardless of how you decide to run your article marketing efforts be sure you do it. Article marketing is a time proven benefit to engage in if you wish to increase traffic to a website. And we all know another word for traffic is Money. The more traffic your article marketing generates is the more money you’ll be stuffing in your virtual pockets.

It Shouldn’t Be This Easy to Make Money Online – But It Is!

make-money-onlineInternet marketing rule number 1 – don’t make making money online hard. I’ve done some consulting over the years and coached internet marketers, and I’ve found one thing – they love to complicate their business.

By the time they come my way, they has this fangled, convoluted business model that makes me vomit just thinking about it.

No, that won’t work. We need simple, simple models built on simple, simple systems. Here’s my business model that I use for all my stuff.

First, I start with lead generation. I have a system for getting leads to my website. I focus on the “big 3”. At all times, I have three different ways to get traffic to my website. I do it through articles (like this one), joint ventures with people who have lists, and with pay per click advertisement. I spend a part of my day getting traffic to my site.

Second, I take that traffic and build an email list with it. This is the formula I use every time. Traffic comes to my page. I offer them something of value for free – either a report, a video or whatever. To get it, they have to sign up for my list. Every day I’m checking my sign up rates and tweaking things to make improvements to get more people signing up for my list.

Third, I send them messages every few days that do three things – give them more value, help to build a tighter relationship between them and me, and to promote my products. I have two products – a cheap product and an expensive product.

I market my cheap product on the front end to make some upfront money. Those who buy my front end product then go through another email series where I try to sell them my more expensive product.

The final module of my business is to create and offer additional products to my list, based on their feedback.

It’s not complicated, because it doesn’t have to be. A long time ago I realized that when I was cashing my checks at the bank, nobody was giving me extra money for doing things the hard way.

Now, do you think I have systems for each of these steps, so I can do them as efficiently as possible, as quickly as possible and to get the best results as possible? You bet your hat I do.

So here’s what you need to do to succeed online. First, develop a very simple plan. Heck, use the same plan I use. Second, systematize every process within that plan, so you can do it without even having to really think about it.

One of the best ways to get targeted traffic to your site for free is with article marketing.

I’ve perfected an article writing system that has literally changed people’s lives and has cut their article writing time down from 1 hour per article to 7 minutes. To learn this article writing secret, go to http://www.7minutearticle.com

How To Create Information Products Effortlessly – And Not Feel Guilty About It

info-productIt’s really not that hard to create a really good information production that you can sell for $47 or more a pop. In fact, it’s really simple, if you systematize it.

Here’s how I do it – I first look for the ten main points related to the topic I’m writing about. What I want to do is answer the ten most pressing concerns or solve the ten most pressing problems that my target audience faces.

So, each of those ten problems becomes a chapter. Then I have an introduction chapter and a conclusion chapter, for a total of twelve chapters.

After that, I begin to outline each chapter. I keep it simple, because I use the same outline technique for each chapter. First I start with telling them why they should learn the information that I am going to present to them in this chapter. I tell them how learning this information can empower them in certain ways. I also show how it can help enhance the relationships they have with others.

Finally, I tell them why learning this information can boost their self esteem and give them a feeling of accomplishment if they follow through with it and make positive changes because of it. That’s usually good for the first page.

After that, the next part of my outline is presenting the information. I first start with the major concept for that chapter. I tell them what the exact intent I am aiming for by giving this information. Then I give them principles to back up my main concept – in other words, I explain to them why it works before I tell them how it work.

Then I simply give them a step by step process for getting the results. This is “what” they need to know in order to get the results they desire.

After I give them a step by step action sequence, I go back through it and highlight potential sticking points. I then offer remedies for those sticking points so they don’t get caught up and have trouble following through.

After I do that, I then tell them what they can expect to achieve in the real world once they master the concept I have presented in the real world. I try to give them a case study of someone who has already achieved those results, so they can know what to expect.

Finally, I show them where they can apply the information in the chapter to, and where they should avoid it. Then, I close out the chapter and move on to the next one, where I repeat the process.

By following this simple outline, I can crank out products at will in a very quick time. But the good news is that my outline forces me to create high quality products!

However, the best products in the world won’t sell if you don’t get targeted traffic to your website.

One of the best ways to get targeted traffic to your site for free is with article marketing.

Internet Marketing for Lazy People – Product Creation Secrets

make-moneyIt’s so easy to create information products that you can sell for $7, $27 or even $97 that it’s laughable. Everyone should create their product, and I don’t know why so many people who do internet marketing don’t have one.

I actually have a “product idea generator” checklist I use to create products on demand. When I use this checklist in combination with a very specific outline I’ve developed, I’m knocking out products in as little as one day – or in some cases a few hours.

One of my favorite products to create is a “Done For You” product. These can include website templates, squeeze pages designed to get people to sign up for your lists, or so on. The idea here is to create something that is a push button solution.

How easy is this? Hire a few freelancers to do some graphic design and web design for you, get an article writer to create some content for cheap, and then in a week you have a complete product you can package and sell.

Too much work? Okay, how about this. On my book shelf I have a whole bunch of “self help” books. If I wanted to enter the self-help market, here’s what I’d do. First, I’d pick a sub niche, so there wouldn’t be much competition.

Then I’d find every author on amazon who has a book written related to that topic. Then, I’d just get their contact information and call them up on the phone. I’d present them with my business plan on how I’d like to do some teleseminars with them, and then give them a portion of the sales.

Get nine experts together, and now you don’t just have a teleseminar – you have a full fledged course. Hire a transcriptionist, and convert the calls into an ebook. Or better yet, have someone make power point videos out of the calls, so now you have a “video course”.

Then, when you sell them this the course, when they are checking out offer them a two month free subscription to your membership site. That’s another instant product you’ve created. The great thing about doing this is that you don’t even have to have any content in your membership site yet. Just get them to sign up, and then afterwards, create the content. If they stay around for two months, then start billing them.

If you’ve built up an email list, offer a private, 30 minute consultation for $50. Instant service. Then, get permission to record the call, bundle a bunch of the calls up together, and sell that as a product. Instant product.

I have a list of 27 product idea generators that I always look at when I decide I want to create a product. You should develop your own list as well. Just look around and see what the big boys are doing, and take notes of the different types of products they are offering.

One of the best ways to get targeted traffic to your site for free is with article marketing.

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
