Chris Rempel's Conduit Method is a very effective marketing idea (I have implemented it myself and I have done wonders with it). But so is article marketing and after a debate I orchestrated in another thread, I came up with a wonderful integration insight.
The Conduit Method is mainly about intercepting a potential buyer when they look for a product's name or product review in the search engines via SEO.
Artile Marketing is mainly about sending direct traffic to a landing page (among other things), also via SEO if you keyword optimized your articles.
So let's integrate both. Allow me to elaborate.
Work your article marketing campaign as usual and design a high converting landing page, whatever has been working out for you in that area (Reviews, Stories, Information etc...) However, we do have to take into account that there is a bounce rate and it will never be zero.
So in those landing pages make some sort of comments pointing the reader who will bounce to look OUTSIDE your landing page.
Anyway, this is where the Conduit Method kicks in, the visitor will go to Google, do the search term and the first 3 search results will be YOUR sites, they can be a hubpage, squidoo, website, whatever. Point is, the bounced visitor will go to yet another of YOUR affiliate landing pages and most likely click through the affiliate link there. If they don't, they will probably go for the second search result or third, which are also YOURS.
This might take a lot of hard work, time and backlinks if you are in a competitive niche or competitive product promotion, but it could be remarkably easy if you are not. Either way it would pay off.
You would not only be making sales from your article marketing campaign landing page(s), but you would also dominate the bouncers or as I like to call them, undecided potential buyers.
I'm in the process of testing this right now. What do you guys think?
Chris, I would love to hear your insights on this.
Best of luck,
