It takes a lot to do well with article marketing, its hard to write something that is both informative while also a sales pitch as well. I tried it with CB with minimal success, then again, I wasn't too keen on targeting my keywords.

But it could be a fluke, I got one sale, and then nothing for a long while.
in any case they pay after one reach 5 sales, good luck.

Hi Justice44

I chose a product from CB in the fitness niche - put together a single webpage with a related article as content, and banners promoting the product. Then I wrote 2 articles with my links included and submitted them to Ezine - within 24 hours I had made a sale. This was pretty much it.

Hi Nauqetta30 - thankyou!

I purchased Dean Shainin's

"The Underground Secret EzineArticle Manifesto - WSO"

which really taught me alot on how to write effective articles. I only joined the forum around 1 month ago and i had already been writing articles but not been successful in earning money via affiliate marketing with them.

Once I read the above WSO - it really opened my eyes and has helped me improve my articles heaps.

I also searched for alot of other good info on the forum - all great stuff.‏

Keep at it - you will get there. The more articles you write the better you will be at writing them

Yes you are so right! I have so far written another 10 articles so we will see what that brings! I''l tell you one thing though, making 1 sale from my articles has really given me the incentive to keep writing - thats how I whipped out another 10 so quick!

thanks for your comments!

Congratulations, I'm just starting this as well, I want to build a website with articles and submit to directories, but I'm thinking it is better for me to build a lot of content on my website first and then start to drive traffic through article directories.

I've been successful with PPC and this is how I earn my income mainly, but would like to try out articles now and combine it with social bookmarking and rss submitting.

Hi Dally137 -I've tried quite a few ways promoting products but most cost money, and article marketing is free. It's also something i love to do - so writing is very easy for me - having said that I am still learning how to put together a well written article that will bring me sales because I still consider my self to be a newbie too..

I have found though that the best strategies (for me anyway) if you want to use article marketing is to write about things you are really passionate about and already have some knowledge on. So find a few products, research them, and workout what ones you think you would like to promote and just start writing.

I tend to procrastinate alot and get side tracked with emails, and other things - so another strategy is to stop thinking, and reading and just get out there and do it. Focus on one method you want to use to promote your products with and get really good at it - so if you want to try article marketing then write as many articles as you can. The m ore you write the better they will become.

Hey don't forget - I have only made one sale so far with this article marketing thing so I am definatley no expert! There are heaps and heaps of other great people in this forum who have been at this for ever and ever and will provide you with loads of good info for you to use.

Good luck

There is nothing more motivating than making that first sale.

You finally realize that people really can make money online. Now you just have to exponentialize (not sure if that's a word or not) that and you're on your way.

Congratulations and good luck.

Yes, reading emails, forum posting (only when excessive), looking up stats., all these will erode your earnings if you allow them to interfere with the business of making money. A while back, I posted a thread titled "what are you doing today to make money" or something like that which makes this point. You should ask yourself each and every day this question: "What can I do to make money today?"

In making more than $10 per article, you are obviously very highly skilled. Considering that your first language isn't English, this is an awesome achievement. Congrats to that.

I think you should definitely consider leveraging your success and getting hundreds of articles produced each day by writers and hiring people to work your systems, which are obviously effective.

I think a ton of people here would love to know how you make so much....it would be very valuable to a lot of people starting you.

All the best

This what I'd like to do. Articles and affiliate programs is good, my PPC campaign works well, but you have to provide value and make it worth staying on your site. I generally use reviews and recommendations as well as general history and updates about the industry etc...

Now I will start using articles and social bookmarking to drive traffic to those sites as well and I think it should add value to what I'm already doing

The best way I think to look at article marketing is not just to place links in a resource box, submit to directories and get people to buy from your link.. rather a long term approach is more profitable.

So for example assuming your product is wordpress themes, and you want people to buy from you as well as find you easily, you would build your website with your gallery etc... and then begin using articles to answer questions that people ask about themes, wordpress and all related topics (you get the topics through basic research).

Keep updating this site on a consistent basis with valuable content, and in time Google will begin to update your website more often.

You should then piggy back on directories, hubpages, squidoo and similar to build the traffic back to your website. Encourage subscriptions and community interaction on your website and in time you'll build your loyal fan base... just to maintain quality, you may even invest in higher quality writers, or better still even approach some writers and ask them if they'd bee interested in supplying you with a few unique articles that you could post on your blog and these articles should be exclusive to your website.

This is a good way to build content for those categories you don't plan to write on but are related, and you'd be surprised at how many will be willing to become contributors if you reference their work and site, or you may have some complimentary products you can share with them or you may just trade articles with each other.

For this to work well, only maintain one or two writers for one category, you don't want to become a directory of articles and you want your writers to enjoy the partnership too. As well, establish the style so you don't end up with just any content.

This is just one approach, .. overall, your goal with articles should be to build a trusted brand name as best you can.. even if it is not your own product, and you should understand that this also takes some time to build, but in the end it pays of.

Default Re: I just Made My First $20 from Article Marketing!

Wow. I can't believe it's been just over a week since I last saw this thread, and how it has grown!

Firstly, I would like to congratulate you Liz - your first sale does feel good.

Now, let me tell you what I did last week. I was reading through this thread with interest. Bigjock (Barry) had some very interesting points that intrigued me - a LOT. A thousand dollars a day??? REALLY??? Half that would be lovely!

I've been article (or BUM) marketing for quite a while now, and yes it works, but it most definitely doesn't work as well for most as one would like to think. I can teach you how to build yourself a website and make your first sale in less than 30 days (my last client did it in 10 days). That's just great. However...she only made $20 in that time too. At the time I was really excited for her, but now I know more...

I had a bit if a private chat with Barry and asked him some questions about what he was talking about and after reading his answers I asked him to mentor me.

We agreed on a price and he officially became my mentor. Woo hoo!

What has happened since last Tuesday has simply astounded me.

Being an article marketer, I knew I could write well enough to convince someone to click on my link and buy a product from me. I'm writing anyway, so why not write and get more money than I do now from it??? It just seemed like the logical way to go!

I followed his instructions, created my Elance (and others) account with absolutely no credibility whatsoever (in fact, I still have none because I am waiting for my feedback scores to go in!) and followed Barry's instructions to the letter. His instructions are really simple and step by step, telling you exactly what to do and when. Even my mother would be able to follow it!

I then started bidding for jobs, whilst following the strategies he taught me. They are so simple, but yet hardly anyone follows these strategies so while you think you have a lot of competition, you really don't.

Within a DAY I had my first client. On day 2, I had a couple more...

I now have 8 clients and another has contacted me about the possibility of creating a joint business venture which could turn out to be quite lucrative. I also had another come back to me yesterday apologising because she didn't pick me and she regretted it. She was also asking if I could write for her in the future!

I'm not at $1000 a day yet, but I will be and I now know that it can be done.

I have made more money in the last week than I made after several months of article marketing starting off and it is all because of what Barry has taught me - AND I'm only in week 2 of a 12 month course!! This is so unbelievable.

All of my clients have been lovely and have suggested they will use me for future work (which brings back what Baz said earlier about Elance being only a small drop in the ocean - he's right).

Oh, and I work full time and am a mother of two (one is two years old, so still high maintenance!).

Yesterday I was starting to feel completely overwhelmed because of the amount of work that was coming my way - I have had to push work out to two weeks away!

Barry assures me that what I learn in month 2 will take most of the heat off. I believe him.

I plan to concentrate on this full time from the end of next month and you will all be told when that happens!

Barry offered to coach Liz free of charge. Me personally, well I could not justify being taught this stuff for nothing - it is THAT good.

So Liz, you have been handed a truly amazing gift. It is your choice as to whether to accept it or not and I won't lie - it's been a lot of hard work, however I knew that this first month was going to be hard and that it will improve.

I suppose it all comes down to what you want, how much and how quickly you want it!

Hi everyone

I thought I'd pop in and offer a quick update on how I'm going with Barry's coaching.

Today I booked in another job that now brings my total work booked in two weeks and one day to almost $550 USD.

Before I started with Barry I had some success with article (bum) marketing but it was a lot of work for not much reward. I have never been trained as a writer and I didn't get A's in English at school all those years ago either. I am proof that if you can use a spell checker and you can read to make sure your writing reads well, then you can do this.

I am married with two children and I work full time, so there really is no excuse for not being able to do this.

Yep, I've only reached $550 but I have only just started and am now charging a lot more for my work (up to and over four times more) than I was two weeks ago.

The only way is up from here...

Well done. You can only increase it from there.

I'm currently running one campaign with 100% article marketing and am averaging $100 a day with it - all profit. It took about 25 days to get to that and earnings are increasing everyday. I was seeing sales from day 1 and it's just built up from there. Considering I've only submitted around 25 articles in that time, I see no reason why I can't get this particular campaign to $300/day.

So have faith and keep doing what works

Michelle.

Its important to note that this is the end of the first 2 week buying cycle at a rate of pay that is roughly 1/4th of the real target rate of pay. You're rate of pay has risen 300% in 2 weeks...as expected.

By no means have you seen all the work you will see from your activity in the first 2 weeks. More money will come in over time and now that you're established, and you will win more work at the new rate.

For example, if you repeated your activity from the last 2 weeks at your current rate of pay, you'd be looking at @$2000 in 2 weeks.

By then end of this month, you will be earning a minimum of $200 per day....bang on track. My suspicion is that you will surprise on the upside.

This foundation to your business is nothing more than you deserve...you've worked hard.

If you didn't have a full time job, I think the post you would have written would have stunned almost everyone on the forum.

Still...theres always next month.

All the best

Barry

Rebecca...thats fantastic and a great return on your articles.

I think OP and dozens of other struggling bum marketers would benefit hugely from a step by step breakdown of how you achieve these results.

You seem to be doing something that many have yet to master after long periods of trying.

So....any chance of you spilling the beans to help OP out?

All the best

Barry

Hey Barry

It all comes down to the niche/product, your resource box and your keywords. I've hit on some great keywords that have brought in 1000 views in 3 days. So far one particular such article has been on Google front page for a week so Im currently building links to keep it there.

Once you see trends of which articles are doing well (in ezinearticles Reports section) you can duplicate that effort by writing more articles on those keywords, and doing some social bookmarking etc to build some links to succesful articles.

This was really an experiment for me and I may be "lucky" that the offer I chose is converting so well, so I will be attempting this on other offers - after I see success there I might report back

Hi Guys

Just a quick update for anyone who might be interested.

Thanks to Barry, I have resigned from my job and finish up Friday!!!

This was not even on my radar just over a month ago and now even one of my friends has come on board and is doing well too.

Another FB friend of mine started last week and he is truly amazed at how successful he has been. His exact words were: "I dont think I have ever seen this level of success in a system before and yes it is a lot of work but I think the joy comes from actual results as you go."

It just goes to show, with the right strategy and coaching from someone who obviously knows what he's talking about, you can achieve your dreams! Woohoo!

I'm not going to say it's been easy - I've never been busier - but it's extremely rewarding. Seeing results from Day 1 kind of gives that feeling!

Ok, I'm off to go plan my new and wonderful life! :-)

Hi John

I've actually had to pull back my workload because of my job, and I had to take a week off the other week to catch up! On the Friday I had made around $100 USD by lunch time with a lot more work to do, so not too shabby! Also, I have a few repeat clients now, so this will bring in ongoing work for me. There is a LOT more work out there than I realised.

Because I've had to reduce my workload, I'm well behind where I would be if I was full time at this, hence my decision to quit. I've spent the last week getting rid of my backlog, but will ramp things up next week in preparation for the week after when I'm FREE!

So in the last month, I've brought in close to $1000 USD. I've been working full time, I have two young children and of course I'm doing this as well, so it's not a bad part time income either!

I won't lie and say it's been easy though. It's been a LOT of hard work, but I suppose nobody minds putting in hard work if they're going to see results! If you decide to go ahead with it, be prepared for a few late nights! It gets easier from month two though, as I have just found out!

What's also great is that you're not paying for the entire course up front and can pull out at any time, although I can't wait to get each module, so will be sticking with it to the end!

Congrats Liz! I remember that feeling. I almost like how Click Bank does not send email notices of sales. The surprise is such a rewarding feeling. Keep up the good work and be sure to track your sales.

Congrats.
The first online income is usually the most important for it tells you that your efforts prior to that was not in vain and the first income also counsels you that to make more money online, you have to do more of what you had been doing.

Have you written more articles?

Welcome to my world.

I am aiming for $1000 a day, although once I get there I'll want to increase it even further.

Will definitely post progress.

I just wanted to thank Barry for posting his insightful thoughts on Bum marketing.

I have just started getting into affiliate marketing, and I see a lot of people pushing snake oil.

Of course I may get labeled as negative or cynical, but I felt your post was a real breath of fresh air. I know the amount of time I've spent researching, tweaking PPC campaigns, writing articles, reading forum posts try to decipher the correct way to go about this.

I also have some trepidation about the recent Squidoo announcement, that they will be putting lenses under more scrutiny in order to combat spammy lenses.

Maybe it's just me, I'm having a hard time making my lens not sound like a sell job.

I also agree, I'm sure there are people were making very big money in affiliate marketing, I just don't think it's in Bum Marketing either.


Again, thank you for your posts, I know your intent wasn't to be malicious towards the OP, you are simply being honest and sometimes we need to see more of that instead of candy coated "best wishes".

Good point but article marketing is one of the best and easiest ways to get your feet wet. Somewhere you have to start and starting with creating a product is not really an option because it requires a lot of experience. Article marketing is a good way to test stuff out and to see what works.

Wow, there are so many people sharing their success stories on the warrior's forum. It really is great to see! Some people worry about too many people coming into the market, but the funny thing about money is that money grows where money flows.

Congratulations!

I've always found article marketing to be the most satisfying out of all Internet Marketing methods. The traffic doesn't come pouring in like it does with PPC at first....BUT, if you get enough articles out there you will see a steady stream of traffic for months and years to come.

So great job! Now, build up your article empire....Your wallet will thank you!

Well done Stay-At-Home-Mum- it's a huge learning curve. You have put the time in learning the whole IM process and when you make that first sale it makes you realise that it is possible to make money at this!

It will give you confidence to make the next $20- and the next and so on.
