347,504 - All With Free Traffic - Directed to CPA offer

61 replies
Hey Warriors,

I have been getting lots of PMs and emails regarding article marketing.

Instead of replying to each question, I want to post it here so that everybody would learn from it.


The bad thing is


Lots of marketers don’t believe that Article marketing works.


The truth is


If you know how to do it the right way, article marketing is highly effective.

I am not going to bore you with theories about the power of article marketing. So, let me give you the real proof that article marketing to CPA really works.

Check the following article from EzineArticles.


http://ezinearticles.com/?****-Berry---How-I-Lost-30-Pounds-in-Under-30-Days-Using-The-****-Berry&id=1998407

This article has been viewed
347,504 times.

Just imagine. Isn’t amazing to get such numbers from a single article?


Let’s estimate how much the author has approximately netted form one article


Let’s take the worst case scenarios


If the article has 10% CTR and the offer converts at 1% (This is the worst case scenario). Also remember, the article is directed to **** berry offer which pays about $33.


The revenue generated would approximately be
more that $10,000, form one strategically placed article.

What if you have 10, 20 or 100 of such kind of articles? Just imagine.

So, warriors …


If you don’t believe that article marketing works, the above article is a
living Proof.

Hope that it makes everything clear.


So, if you are not exploiting the power of article marketing, I highly recommend that you think of it.


Finally …


I also want to hear the power of articles from other warriors.

Thanks.

Mike

        Agreed. Why don't you mention the backlinking strategy as it's not as simply as just submitting the article and hoping for the best?

        For a moment, lets just assume that the views are real and the conversion stats are what we estimated.

        There was likely a backlink and seo strategy combined with the article to get it to where its at, but I think the point is to show that articles can make you money. I dont think Mike is saying its as easy as writing a quick article and plopping it up on ezines and voila, you get 10k in your bank.

        So of course it will require a lot of work to get an article to do well, just like its a lot of backend work to get a video to go viral (most times).

        And most of the time, backlinking strategies are not difficult to replicate, so I think the post was just to show that with the right work put into an article, the article marketing strategy works.


        ...


        For example sake, lets say you spend every day for a single month promoting one article. You can get a ton of SEO and high quality backlinks if you put a months work into the one article. After 1 month of hardcore work, you come up with the article mentioned above with the reasonable stats we listed.

        Do this for 12 articles and get 12 times the result, and thats a 6 figure income you earned in one year.

        Sure some of your articles wont be targeting good keywords or just simply not convert, so maybe you spend 3 weeks per article and get almost twice as many done. 3 weeks is still a lot of backlinking!


        The point is instead of pointing out the possible flaws in the article, I think the OP just wanted to make a general point that article marketing work...which is does!

            Touche my friend!

            The idea here is that there is potential within the article marketing space BUT it will require substantial work just like most strategies. I have never been a hardcore article marketer myself, but many people are!!

        I can't see why would anybody use tools to generate such crazy number of views .

        I know lots of marketers who use tools to generate fake views . But , they usually do it in the first 90 days.

        Hey ukcarl,

        One thing you need to understand is that ...

        If I have researched enough that a single article can bring me such amount of traffic , there is no way I can't build 8089 back links .

        If you don't have to it yourself , you can outsource it . I am sure it will not cost you more than $200 to outsource the link building .

        Imagine how much your ROI would be .

        Hope my point is clear.

        Mike

          There is one reason you might do it. It keeps you listed in the EZA "most viewed" list, which increases your exposure every time someone searches on EZA, or visits any article on EZA including those nasty little search bots.

          Take a look at any article, scroll down past the article, and you will see the list of "Most Recent", "More Related", and "Most Viewed" articles from the categories.

          I'm definitely not saying this is what has been done, but it is one reason people do artificially inflate their view numbers by using software, or paying people to do it.

          It is unlikely Hilary did this, simply because it is not prevalent in her other articles.

          I do want to point out something in this article which you should all take VERY SERIOUS NOTE on. Often we are told to write in a second or third person view for articles, take a close look at this article.

          It is all about "I", this person's experience. It has more power for that simple fact than most of the **** Berry articles on EZA. It is a "real" account of a user, not someone spewing out "you" should do this, or "you" will get this result. An important distinction which makes it readable, and enjoyable.

          Also, take a close look at the formatting. Short paragraphs separated with well defined BOLD subtitles scattered through the article.

          In my humble opinion, it deserves the views it has received because it is not a garbage article like the majority of **** berry articles.

          Quality does help your views, your syndication, your rankings, and your conversion rates.

            I rather think the purpose of this is to get more linkjuice. If I understand correctly when your artilce is listed in the 'Most Viewed' section you get internal links from Ezine itself pointing to it, which in turn re-enforces the backlink from your article to your site. That makes spending a few bucks to get a thousand views well worth it.

    Article marketing can definitely work - but I don't think most people do it properly.

    Just submitting an article to a directory and letting it sit isn't going to get you anywhere unless your keyword is such low competition that it will rank on the article directory's back alone.

    Personally I use the article directories as backlink fodder. Get all of that traffic back to your main page - a niche blog of some sort. Build some links to your articles, which will in turn build higher quality links to your main page.

    I used to work with article marketing befire I get started with CPA and it does work. I consider the paid traffic sources much more powerful, but it's definetely possible to make money with articles if you use the right approach.

    What I used to do is create articles focusing on keywords that I could rank for (my keyword tools were the free ones and Keyword Elite 2.0) and then submit them to article directories with links for my squeeze ages. The only purpose of my squeeze pages was to capture leads, so no reviews or presells, just a gift and an opt-in box. Of course, I also generated backlinks, but just simple link wheels with Blogspot, hub pages, squidoo lenses, and other article directories, not very complex. Actually, the backlinks are not a problem if you have a good spinner like magic article rewriter.

    I have never reached numbers like what Mike showed us with just one article, but got some articles ranking on the first page of Google and made some decent money from them.

      That's how I roll and pretty much do the same thing except I use some tools for massive backlinking instead of blasting articles to different directories. It's all good and it works

    If this person would have put the article on his own site and spent the same amount of time backlinking to it he'd be making a LOT more money.

    So much more it's pretty ridiculous.

    Not to mention that he would also have a site he could add more articles to that would get indexed quickly due to all the backlinking he did to the first article (provided he set up a good internal linking structure).

    So he'd be making even more money every time he published a new article.

    Article marketing works, but since buying a domain and hosting it with a cheap hosting plan take almost no effort, it really doesn't seem worth it.

    Building up the backlinks and traffic to your own sites, not EZA is a far better strategy in my opinion.

    Article marketing is great when you're first starting out though or just for diversifying.

      Lisa,
      You can blast the crap out of articles and web 2.0 properties with links without getting de-indexed or sandboxed if you are using tools to do so, then have those properties pointing to your money site, this gives you a layer of protection.

      Thats a good point Lisa. Doing all that backlinking and SEO strategy on a site you control is a great long term strategy.

      Good stuff

    I think we can all agree that there is great potential.

    Sure we can always argue that there are more efficient ways of making the same amount of money, but then again, we can say that about every single strategy there is out there, cant we?

    I think the other big take out of this is that if you do the work, the results will come. You need to go one step beyond what everybody else is doing. Some people would have submitted the same article and maybe get 5 backlinks and then cry that article marketing is all bogus and doesnt work.

    You'ev got to work just a bit harder than your competitor...same as any business

    Most of guys are submitting article and not doing anything after that. If we make backlinks to that article with targeted keyword, we will get a ton of traffic. As a trick, we can use profile backlinks and ping all them. That's my method

      Second that one. Article Marketing does rule (hey, but I'm biased!).

      It all comes down to how & why you do it...

      I have single articles that has received 250 000+ articles (hint: not on ezinearticles) and keeps on getting read by thousands of REAL people every month.

      ...and believe me. I'm no marketing genious. If I can do it; Anyone can! lol

            Just stop and think about it for a moment.

            What does EZA offer you? They offer you a physical location to put your articles which is filled with alternative offers flashing in front of all of your readers eyes. Adsense ads, other articles, etc...

            If your article is on your blog, an alternative (potentially paid for) directory with no ads, or on other sites which are not distracting your reader you have a higher potential of getting the click where you want it to go.

            EZA and all the other directories can play an important role, but are not the only game in town. As a matter of fact, they are the game with the most exits going the wrong direction.

                You can blast the crap out of articles and web 2.0 properties with links without getting de-indexed or sandboxed if you are using tools to do so, then have those properties pointing to your money site, this gives you a layer of protection.

                Hi, I agree that you can blast the 2.0's and directories for sure.
                But I believe (maybe I am mistaken) Lisa's point is that when you build your own web property the cumulative overall effect is much greater in the long run and in my opinion so is the income.

                I like to put up an article and use a classified ad submitter I have to blast out over 2,000 ads and use a auto commenter to do over 3,000 of those and watch the article jump. I like to use the article to filter the crappy link juice as was said too.

                But, I am always building MY web properties not the directories or ?

      Hey Bravo ,

      I definitely agree this socialbot is nice tool.

      I also want to point out that it is not always that the link prodcuced by this tool is anough . Some time , you need to build more links based on the level of competition .

      Hope it helps .

    Article marketing works just fine. What I do is write an article about a hot topic and use the keywords/phrases that get some nice traffic. After I submit the article to numerous top directories I create 2 new versions of that article and in the resource box I send them to the original article. I even do that with videos. He can get some great backlinks from other bloggers posting your content on their blog.

    Lol... article marketing is such a waste of time. I've been an affiliate for a long time, I know about affiliate traffic, I run affiliate networks, I know where the traffic is - and it's not from articles. Sorry, I guess I'm a blunt guy.

      Are you talking about paid methods like CPC, CPV, CPM? Or a free "lazy" method that does not require writing?

      I disagree to some extent .

      I believe paid traffic methods like PPC , Media Buys, PPV, Facebook, etc are very powerful and effective and can make you lots of money within short period of time .

      And , if done properly free traffic methods are effective too , but not like paid methods .

    Ive submitted 3 articles with a poll, the last couple of days but ive made nothing at all.

    I submitted them to GoArticles and few other sites such as selectivearticles.com, articlebiz.com, Bharet Bhasha, A1 articles, ArticleClic, Article-live, Article ink. Something isn't right, either the re-direct link to the offer isn't working or i haven't choose the right keywords.

    Has anyone tried doing this method with Article submission software? You can get articles submitted to about 80 article sites on auto pilot.

    I found a free program Article submission helper but it didn't work well at all. It just came up with loads of errors when trying to submit the articles such as incorrect login/password, page not found, etc...

    Article marketing works great but to be frank why I avoid is because its boring, but of course you can outsource. Also one point I guess everybody is missing is the quality of article has to be good enough for visitor to click on your link.

      If you don't have time to do it your self, I advice that you outsource it.

    Hi,

    I tested Article Marketing namely eZine, GoArticles, Buzzle, ArticlesBase, Squidoo and Hubpages.

    The number of readers were not that high but it resulted in something better. My keyword was ranked number 2 on page 1 of Google after a few days. Then my keywords controlled 6 out of 10 spots in page 1 of Google.

    That brought the traffic in.

      Dominating the first 6 spots of the search engine results page is really wonderful .

      If the keywords your pages are optimized are highly targeted or what are called the money keywords, I am sure you are going to get very good results .
