The #1 secret to articles,forums, and blogs that 90% of your competition doesn't use!

16 replies
Let me sum up these strategies first in the ideal setting as most people approach it:

Article Marketing - write 100 articles a day about your topic, submit them everywhere with a submit button

Forum marketing - join 3-10 forums and post 10-50 times a day, make your signature amazing

Blog commenting - find 10 blogs in your niche and comment on every post

The problem is that quality and quantity are limited by time, but aren't equal. So say I have one hour; I can write 12 readable articles or 6 good articles, or 3 great articles, or one amazing article. The key is balance... 6 is probably best.

Most people error on the side of quantity over quality, and wonder why their CTR sucks or why some forum banned them. I'm not saying quality always wins; you need to target different keywords and expand.

Just remember: It shouldn't be perfect; you can always improve everything and there's a law of diminishing returns. Everything you do should be good/great; that will bring in more visitors than the guy next you writing 300 spun articles.

By the way, this rule in null and void when it comes to list building. Your goal is to make them want to hear everything you say... That is how emails get opened and sales are made.

Think loyalty is dead? How many of you read a thread just because of who posted it? (Such as Zeus66, Scott Ames, admin, etc.) Give nothing but quality and you'll get quality back.

  • Yes, the problem of Internet is that a lot of content is created during 5 minutes, really good articles are in past. Marketing makes middle ages market from traditionally intellectual Internet.

        If you outsource certainly. If you do it yourself, absolutely not. As to the idea that good content is somehow a thing of the past; I bet your conversions are lower than mine. No matter how many tools are created for automation; PEOPLE are still who read your content and ultimately buy your product. So, if you churn out 55 spun articles from one piece of PLR simply because 'that's how they do it now'; you're missing out tremendously. Just my $.02

          I find the parallels between the IM Outsourcing Services sector and the larger economy fascinating. After the financial crash, "Down-Market Retailing" became the new mantra. The thinking was that "since everybody's broke, we have to go cheap. We have to out-Walmart Walmart." Panic sets in, and businesses are cutting off their left nuts trying to underbid the competition.

          The same thing happened with many online freelancers here, on Elance, GAF, Odesk, etc. But these dynamics are cyclical; I think we may be seeing a slow return to quality, as well as the willingness to pay for it. I certainly hope so~ (I've managed to keep both my testes, but it was a close shave ).

          Whether writing for yourself or a client, excellence will ALWAYS command attention. If you've got the goods, take your time and do it right.

    Welcome to my bandwagon!

    Okay, I haven't preached quality that much here, but in my products and newsletter you can bet I do.

    Nice post.

    Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

    It just bugs me because I've literally read ebooks that said 'just write 10 articles a day, they don't even have to be good, just write them'. This is a business; you think that doctors or lawyers 'do 10 cases a day, but they don't have to be good'?

      I think IM'ers have the same problem as doctors and lawyers do, when to automate and when not to.

      Basically, where human interaction is required, be human, be quality. Otherwise automate and outsource the crap out of it.

      For example, you don't want the doctor to rush you through a 2 minute exam just so they can get to the next patient. Likewise, you don't want them to spend 30 minutes laboriously writing out notes, filing insurance and doing other stuff that could be automated/outsourced while you cool your heels reading 2 year old magazines in their waiting room.

    I think doctors do in socialistic healthcare do more cases at lower quality, but that's another story.

    I'm new and haven't started article marketing out of being torn on what quality to write for. Just with how I am, I want to treat it like a serious research paper and spend hours grabbing information just for a short article and that is not worth the time put into it. On the other hand, I have a really hard time just putting together dribble. I have plr papers and just can't bring myself to doing a quick rewrite and tossing them out there.

    Agree 100% Sean. People just rush for quantity sake. I think of the numbers this way. If I write just 2 great articles a day, change each to a video and do an audio of each article and submit, in just a year you would have 730 articles, 730 videos and 730 audios out there! That's if you only submit each to one directory or video site!!!

    Like you say only quality will get people coming back for more!

    Couldn't you just write 1 amazing article, then using a human controlled spinner, spin that article into 100 amazing articles?

    Hi guys

    im mentoring a guy at the moment who came to me complaining that his blog wasnt making him any money. I took a 5 minute look at it and its just a blog full of re-used articles that are added automatically.

    Its a case of time verses money all the way!

    kind regards

    I have one observation on forum postings. It does not work on increasing trafic or pagerank as it used to in past.
