    You can review products and insert your affiliate links.
    You can do tutorial articles and link to useful products.
    You can write articles and sell them.
    If you have traffic to your articles you can sell ads.

    There are still many uses of articles :-)

    I've been killing it through articles for more than 20 years. In my experience, marketing using articles is the most effective and scalable promotion method of all time. This is not going to change in 2020.

    My method is to produce relevant and engaging articles to bring targeted prospects to my niche websites. I then distribute these articles to online/offline publications which already are being read by my prospects.

    For example, for any given commercially viable niche, there may be thousands or perhaps even hundreds of thousands of suitable publications for distribution. Editors and bloggers are hungry for quality content for their reading audiences.

    There are alot of ways to use articles to get traffic and in turn make money for your website. You can:

    - Repurpose them into Youtube videos
    - Repurpose them into podcasts
    - Use them to build up your blog and website content for SEO
    - Distribute them to webmasters for syndication
    - Become a freelancer
    - Sell them as PLR material
    - Combine them into PDF's and upload them onto document sites
    - Use them as guest blogging content

    These are just some of the few uses for them.

  • My guess has always been that it was super-saturated by now, especially if you're relying on SEO or organic traffic. But judging from the replies above, some people are making it work - I'm intrigued.

      The potential for SEO or organic traffic is comparatively insignificant in scope relative to what intentional content marketing can do.

      For example, I distribute my articles regularly to nearly 90,000 online/offline publication partners for dozens of my marketing niches.

      Back in prehistoric days (before the internet), this was called "article syndication", although it has been extensively maligned here on the forum mostly by the "SEO" crowd far from its original model.

      Writers would submit articles to newspaper and magazine editors for publication. Usually a byline was given for contact information. But "branding" or name recognition is the real attention currency in competitive arenas.

      This 100+ year-old model is still working today (offline and online), perhaps better now than ever before. No "saturation" is in sight.

    You first have to figure out what problems people have. For example they have a dog that is not behaving well.

    After you find out about your audience's problem, you write a problem solving article about it. Something like "5 tips to teach your dog how to behave".

    Try to write an high quality article about that topic and in the end you can recommend a product with more helpfule tips or a way how the promoted product can help them even better and faster than what you wrote in your article.

    The trick is to help them out, but not giving away all the ways how to fix their problems.

    This is a great way to monetize your articles.

    I hope that was helpful for you to understand how you can make money with articles

    Article marketing is alive and kicking. The dash for the gold-rush in the works.

    Part of the success is repurposing content with some editorial review and you're golden.

  • Gotta remembah always how the etymyool origin of ARTICLE goes way back to Latin types bendin' ovah all articulate bcs essential gymnastic talents.

    Here be flexibility allied to knuckle -- punch gonna change stuffs.

    Course, now we got more sophistication regardin' our partickulah artickulah flexin'

    Bcs we seen how all kindsa articulation works sweetest for all kindsa purpose.

    So prolly we got a whole kinda slidin' scale of information value gowin' on here, startin' with trooly objective nooz ... advertorials mixin' up qualified formality with juicy offahs ... to Trojan Horse incendiaries pumped kinda more deep state to the slumberin' dead.

    Info got all kindsa outlets ... all kindsa forms ... for all kindsa reasons.

    But I love so how the orignl Latin invites us to look in on the intrinsic BENDINESS of evrythin' we see an' evrythin' we subsequently show or tell.

    I would want always to value the powah we got as agents of the transmissible in a Cosmos fulla goobers maxin' on fist but lackin' all flex.

    I jus' here to play my 'small connectin' part'.

    Eithah you switch your AVAILABLE JUICY on ... or you shut it down, n'er 'e'er to reach light of day.

    Lightin' fuses is for blowin' stuff togethah.

    Over eight years ago I had no income.

    When I left my highly successful job as an ex-pat executive & began my online business startup, I purposely didn't start with a complex business plan.

    I focused on the simplicity & the practicality of landing to my first client because
    I knew that I would only get a sense of real income once I tested my business idea in the marketplace, not on paper for me to see if someone will pay me.

    My initial approach was based on putting together what I know (my experience) and match it with what people's needs. And when I got my first client, that's when I concentrate on writing articles that are only related to my target market.

    Decide On The Primary Topics You Want To Cover.

    Here are some best tips in deciding the topic you want to cover:
    • Your audience should never be everyone. Be as specific as possible.
    • Define your audience pain points
    • Define the product benefits your audience can get
    • The outcome your audience can get if they consume your content

    Categorize all of your content topics based on your selected keyword phrase. Not only you better measure which topics are working best for you, but this will also help when you want to repackage your content in the future.

    I hope this helps.

    There are tons of ways and topics you can write and discuss. Anything that you like can be okay and you could also try to read work of others and try to get ideas from it but not to the point you are plagiarizing their work.

    I think the best way for you is to write anything that you want, a niche so to speak. Then make a website and just keep on writing daily or every 2 to 3 days. Use SEO tools to make your way up the ranks.

    You can do everything on your spare time and after more than 6 months or a year and you still keep doing it without hesitation, then your website would grow. Every good result comes out from hard work and perseverance so just keep on writing or if you are too lazy and you have all the money the just hire them to write articles or content for you. Lol.
