Article Marketing Rocks - Follow my very own story that makes me more than $200+ daily on autopilot!

Hi Warriors,

Today I want to give you some tips that will be usufull for newbies and advanced article
marketers.

p.s - I just want to say that English is not my first language but I will try my best.

Let's start.

Since 2008 I have tried to figure out how article marketing works and how to become a 5 figures
per month earner. Really this was my goal but I never follow it. Back at October Last year I build a
blog and manage it to get it to $100/day mark within only 3 weeks. But then I sold that website
and I forgot article marketing once again.

-- - - - Until August this year, when I was at vacation for 3 days with my GF and we had conversation with her
about how are we gona live together - like normal people ( I am talking anywhere between $1-3k month ) - This is what I
called normal people in my country - most of them will call them rich.

Anyway after we got back from that 3 day vacation we decided we will do a reasearch and put 2-3 review sites that will
promote other people products. And here is What we have done under 3 days.


We spent around $200 To get 2 super looking review websites and 15 Articles in Total - Unique content + I payed $10 per article.
Some of you will say: Why Did you spent over $10 per article when you can get your articles for less than $3 each - well the answer is
I want to make money so I have to spent money and get quality content.


After we got my review websites up, we got our writer and asked her to write us other batch of 100 articles that we will promote or review sites with them.
We payed a tottal of $800 for that but we got other batch of 10 articles as a bonus and posted them in my review sites.
So each of our review site now has - 2 product reviews + a total of 8 related articles to my niche.

After two months time working on my new sites - We manage to get both of them on the front page of google. The first one is also ranking in the 1st position and the second on is 5th position in google for the main
keyword.

* Niche one has over 6 000 000 competition
* Niche two has over 2 500 000 competition

Since that was happend around the middle of September the 1st website was bringing me over $120+ daily commision. We had few days with over $300 in sales just by one of this sites. The 2nd website
hit google front page and position 1st in the end of September I thing it was 27th. That website makes me anywhere between $50-70 daily.

So here is what I did.

1. We posted each of my promotional articles to over 25 directories. So thats a total of over 2500+ backlinks if all of them was accepting my articles (Well to be honest I got my articles accepted
in 23 article directories )

2. We spent nearly 7 days - 14 hours on PC each day - creating videos with my articles. When I hit the 100 videos done ( Thanks to my GF for helping me on that one ) - I start to submit each of my
video to the TOP 10 video websites. That toke me only 2 days. ( Thanks again for the help of my GF ) And that brings me more than 1000 backlinks to my site.

3. We bookmark every promotional article to the TOP 15 bookmarketing websites and we also bookmarked our inner pages of our review website.

4. We submit our articles to the TOP 5 search engines and we also submitted our review sites and their inner pages.

5. We done RSS feeds submittion.

6. We submit our review websites to over 2000+ directories. This was difficult but it toke us no more than 5 days I gues and we also done other work in that time.

7. This was the last but not the easiest part of our promotion. We build some Blog commenting links to over 100+ PR5 websites. This was diffucult if you ask me.


So all of the above we done it manually - We did't use any softwares or any automation tools ( this is just my opinion - I don't like softwares because I cannot track everything the way I wanted to ).

It toke us 17 days in total to complete all the tasks.

What I learned was - ARTICLE MARKETING ROCKS if you follow your goal and be motivated you will success.

Till today those two websites are making us enough money.

Site one makes us - $150+ daily now
Site two makes us - $80+ daily now

Lets hear your success with article marketing and to the ones who are newbies and thining of stating jus follow yor goal and stay motivated.

Thanks
Ivan Georgiev

    Your plan sounds good. I don't like the website directory technique though, I did it and found it to not be that good for me. The Rss, the article marketing and the commenting on high pr blogs is a great step though. I have found if I do simple blog commenting to high pr sites that's enough to get me ranking well for a mid level niche.

    Is the article you put on your blog the same article you sent out to those 25 article directories?

    Or do you have 2 articles, one for your blog and one that you syndicate out to the article directories with a link back to your blog article?

    Thanks!

      Hi Daniel,

      All of the content on the review sites are unique. I never posted any of them to article directories.

    I also bookmarked this post. And congrats on your wonderful success!
    May I ask a few questions- where did you find your writer? I had a hard time finding a good writer with affordable rate.
    And how did you do keyword research? Was each of your article targeting a long tail keyword?

    Sorry for many questions How did you make your videos? I normally use Animoto to create my videos, just wonder if you use another option.

    Thanks a lot for your great information!

      Hi Jenny,

      I got my writer last year, I don't really remember where I find her lol.
      As for the Keyword research - most of the articles was targeting the main keyword of the niche and very few long tail keywords.

      As for the videos we did that our selfs with my GF. We done it with WMM. We did't want to spent more for services like tubemogul.



      hope that will helps

      Thanks

    Your story would be more inspirational if we had some idea of what you were selling. Not specifically, of course, but whether you are selling a physical product -- drop shipped? amazon aff? boxed and shipped yourself? -- or a downloadable product, or are you getting income from adsense or CPA?
    I've found that search rankings can be manipulated a bit, but what to do with the customers who show up is the main problem.

    That's impressive Ivan, sounds your like your significant other played a big part in that success, guess you're going to have to put a "ring" on it?

    Great results, you had a serious plan of attack and you followed it, very inspiring for those of us who feel disheartened or frustrated, it can happen you just have to be prepared to put the work in.

    Keep us updated, I have a feeling those figures will only grow with time.

      Ivan-

      Thanks for sharing your insights into how well article marketing has been to the success of your business. This should serve as 'confirmation' that article marketing does play an important role in promoting a website!

      Regarding step #3, where you indicated you bookmarked every promotional article, as well as your inner pages to the TOP 15 bookmarketing websites...my question is this:

      Did you use the same login details for each bookmarketing website or did you have 15 unique logins, one for each? If you used 15 unique logins, did you base your 'user-name' based on the keyword for each unique article?


      Again, congrats to your success and may it continue to grow everyday!


      Howie

      PS: I believed you mentioned "WMM" to post to the top video sharing sites...what is "WMM" if I may ask?...or were you merely referring to "Windows Movie Maker" to just make the vids?

      - What RSS submission software are you folks using? I had been using RSS Announcer, but it suddenly quit working. I'm looking for something better and more powerful...

      Great work Ivan! Goes to show that with a little investment and the right approach, it doesn't take much to start seeing results!

      would like some advice on the best way of going about social bookmarking sites. Do you suggest unique logins/user names for each site, or just sticking w/one generic one across the board?


      Thanks,

        Thanks,


        Ray
        Well we use a total of 5 unique usernames for all our submissions. But I don't see any problem if you are using just 1.

          Thanks for the response Ivan! I had heard conflicting stories regarding one account over many bookmarking sites...I'll use my one lone account on a few of the bigger sites to get an idea as to the speed of getting a site to page 1 of Google and if needed, will expand and try multiple accounts such as yourself.


          To your continued success!

    Today I want to give you some tips that will be usufull for newbies and advanced article
    marketers.

    p.s - I just want to say that English is not my first language but I will try my best.

    Let's start.

    Since 2008 I have tried to figure out how article marketing works and how to become a 5 figures
    per month earner. Really this was my goal but I never follow it. Back at October Last year I build a
    blog and manage it to get it to $100/day mark within only 3 weeks. But then I sold that website
    and I forgot article marketing once again.

    -- - - - Until August this year, when I was at vacation for 3 days with my GF and we had conversation with her
    about how are we gona live together - like normal people ( I am talking anywhere between $1-3k month ) - This is what I
    called normal people in my country - most of them will call them rich.

    Anyway after we got back from that 3 day vacation we decided we will do a reasearch and put 2-3 review sites that will
    promote other people products. And here is What we have done under 3 days.


    We spent around $200 To get 2 super looking review websites and 15 Articles in Total - Unique content + I payed $10 per article.
    Some of you will say: Why Did you spent over $10 per article when you can get your articles for less than $3 each - well the answer is
    I want to make money so I have to spent money and get quality content.


    After we got my review websites up, we got our writer and asked her to write us other batch of 100 articles that we will promote or review sites with them.
    We payed a tottal of $800 for that but we got other batch of 10 articles as a bonus and posted them in my review sites.
    So each of our review site now has - 2 product reviews + a total of 8 related articles to my niche.

    After two months time working on my new sites - We manage to get both of them on the front page of google. The first one is also ranking in the 1st position and the second on is 5th position in google for the main
    keyword.

    * Niche one has over 6 000 000 competition
    * Niche two has over 2 500 000 competition

    Since that was happend around the middle of September the 1st website was bringing me over $120+ daily commision. We had few days with over $300 in sales just by one of this sites. The 2nd website
    hit google front page and position 1st in the end of September I thing it was 27th. That website makes me anywhere between $50-70 daily.

    So here is what I did.

    1. We posted each of my promotional articles to over 25 directories. So thats a total of over 2500+ backlinks if all of them was accepting my articles (Well to be honest I got my articles accepted
    in 23 article directories )

    2. We spent nearly 7 days - 14 hours on PC each day - creating videos with my articles. When I hit the 100 videos done ( Thanks to my GF for helping me on that one ) - I start to submit each of my
    video to the TOP 10 video websites. That toke me only 2 days. ( Thanks again for the help of my GF ) And that brings me more than 1000 backlinks to my site.

    3. We bookmark every promotional article to the TOP 15 bookmarketing websites and we also bookmarked our inner pages of our review website.

    4. We submit our articles to the TOP 5 search engines and we also submitted our review sites and their inner pages.

    5. We done RSS feeds submittion.

    6. We submit our review websites to over 2000+ directories. This was difficult but it toke us no more than 5 days I gues and we also done other work in that time.

    7. This was the last but not the easiest part of our promotion. We build some Blog commenting links to over 100+ PR5 websites. This was diffucult if you ask me.


    So all of the above we done it manually - We did't use any softwares or any automation tools ( this is just my opinion - I don't like softwares because I cannot track everything the way I wanted to ).

    It toke us 17 days in total to complete all the tasks.

    What I learned was - ARTICLE MARKETING ROCKS if you follow your goal and be motivated you will success.

    Till today those two websites are making us enough money.

    Site one makes us - $150+ daily now
    Site two makes us - $80+ daily now

    Lets hear your success with article marketing and to the ones who are newbies and thining of stating jus follow yor goal and stay motivated.

    Thanks

      Marketers look for competition in quotes because the phrase in quotes is your real competition - the sites that are actually optimized for that particular phrase.

      I did PM you with a question about the compitition in quotes, and the point is we wana know the actual compitition in your keywords

      cuz as a marketer the normal search results is useless, with quotes is really what metters,

      You 'hit the nail on the head here'. People very very rarely search using quotes. But the 'guru's' always recommend this as the way of gauging 'true' competition for that holy grail...'the long tail keyword phrase' or whatever.

      Absolutely correct! It's that word FOCUS again. If more people would stop skipping around from one thing to another they'd see success much more quickly.

      Well done Ivan. Only thing I'd add is that you should perhaps use some of the money you are now earning and start outsourcing more of the work, then just ramp it all up to the next level.

      Congrats.

      1. Where can one find those 2000+ directories?
      2. In your last point (point 7) Do you mean to say that you located 100+ PR sites related to your niche or general ones and just placed a comment with a link back to your landing page?

      Thanks in advance for clarifying these points for me.

        6 millions and 2.5 millions competition? Are you kidding me? This is in contrast to all what I have read about choosing a profitable keyword. This really shows that you know what you are doing. Your massive action overrides the high competition in a relatively short period. Middle of September - October 11th when this thread was started. This is unbelievable.
        Congratulations Ivan. What a motivational post.
