ARTICLE MARKETING REALLY ROCKS - A LONG TERM AND RELIABLE ONLINE INCOME METHOD !!!

by vbm08 Banned 36 replies
Hi Fellow Warriors, This is Vishal here from India.

I am working online since last 1 year. I have started my online venture with just like others by searching for countless hours for THE NEXT BIG THING that will change the life we dreamed about. Only thing happens is that NEXT BIG THING never came. And for the first 6-7 months, I was just searching for the tricks or short term methods that will make me money quickly.

And after the lot of frustrations and repeated failed attempts on making money online ; on one of my lucky day I bumped on Travis Sago's Bum Marketing Method. I will not say that it has totally changed my life. But at least it has provided me the most reliable long term solution to the online earning and online survival.

There are 3 people here in this forum I would like to really thanks and they are Travis Sago,Dean Shainin and Steven Wagenheim. These are truly masters of Article Marketing. And I am still learning from their online teaching material. I slowly starts to like BMM as from last 3-4 months my online daily income has grown from $0 to $20.

I am really looking forward to make the best of BMM and I will need all the support from the well knowledgeable fellow warriors here. THANKS.

    Hi Vishal,

    Article marketing DOES rock - I agree 100%!

    Now, add a few blogs in different niches, write some product reviews, and send you article readers to them - easy money!

    Like you, I learned the bum marketing method from Travis. From there, seems like everything has kind of come together and I have a much better grasp of what to do in order to be successful.

    Good luck to you - looks like you've gotten off to a good start!

      Congratz Vishal! Remember to focus on quality, and keywords - They're what I found really affected the success I was having.

      A little side note though - Typing in all capitals appears like your shouting, might want to watch out for that in the future

      Keep taking action and your dreams will follow.

    Reality check......


    That's great but $20 a day after 4 months is not a long term reliable income.


    It's nice that you're making something - but don't confuse sharing your success with thinking it's a good idea to tell others it should be their business model. For some people that model will never get them what they need.

      Whoa, just because it wouldn't pay for your coffee doesn't mean the gentlemen is unsuccessful. Don't try to compare other people's success based on your own.

      Am my missing something here ?? Do you two already have an ongoing dialogue ??

      If not then I say enough with the elitist remarks. I don't care how much you make or how big you are here at the Warrior Forum. I know you have some great knowledge and info. as I have read your posts.

      But dang dude ,you make some sharp remarks and you might need to learn to tone things down a little bit. Its great that you get to travel around the World and do this and that with your financial independence. More power to you.

      But I don't care how powerful or rich or smart you are. In the end ,people will only remember you on how you carried yourself and the respect you showed towards others .

      And honestly to me that was just some snobby and disrespectful remarks.

        Yes you are.

        I never said anything about his success not being valuable or worthy of comment - I think it's fantastic!!!!!!!!!

        I absolutely love to see people getting started. It's the hardest part.

        So, if you read something other than that into my intention about his success - you did miss something.

      I'm sure in India, even with the weak dollar, $20 a day helps a lot. It's all relative Andy. Besides, it's pretty obvious that Vishal is enthusiastic that something is working for him and that he wanted to share that with the forum. I also didn't see him write anything to the effect that he was going to stop his efforts, so his income should continue to grow. I understand what you were trying to do, but honestly your "reality check" was misplaced.

      Vishal, keep it going bro!

      Andrew, I couldn't agree more.

        $20 bucks a day is $600 bucks per month. Most american families would be thrilled to have an extra 600 bucks per month coming in. For many, that would make their mortgage payment,and if that were the case, maybe we wouldn't be in such a financial mess as we are in today.

      Hey Vishal,

      I have been marketing online for a number of years and never really got into article marketing until this last month. I'm ashamed to admit that I have not done it more.

      This month I have submitted 13 articles and I can already see a substantial increase in my optin's.

      As far as a long-term business model, seeing how I've only really been at it for a months I cannot say.'

      But, I can say this, any type of traffic generation that converts is a long-term business model.

      I just never choose to do article marketing. I used other methods. I already started outsourcing article creation and am planning on doing a lot more of it.

      I'll still be writing my own material, but I will have the vast majority of the articles I plan on submitting outsourced.

    Thanks everyone for sharing your valuable thoughts here. I am not saying that this is my biggest achievement. But I have just started and really looking to expand my online empire. I thought that sharing my own story will boost the confidence of newbie marketers who are still struggling to make money online.

    And THANKS to Andy Henry for sharp but to the point comments.

    Also my great thanks to Discrat and Shanon for inputting their own views.

      $20.00 a day in reoccuring revenue ROCKS!!! I don't care if it took you 4 months or 4 years. You've cracked the code dude! You're gaining experience, you're learning, you're having fun and you're creating a continuing stream of revenue that will keep increasing as you gain more experience. The next $20.00 a day will come much quicker and before you know it you'll be up to $100.00 a day.

    I have also seen some results from article marketing. The one thing though is it's not the fastest method of getting traffic but it is good solid traffic and the article will be out there forever so at least you do the work once and it could potentially pay off forever.

      Vishal, thanks for the kind words.

      I've been reading some of the responses and had to really do some soul
      searching before giving my response to them.

      Without taking any sides, one thing I have learned from my time here and my
      time online in general is that you can't measure other people's success in
      terms of your own.

      This works on both ends of the scale.

      On the one hand, those who are not making as much as me, I don't feel it's
      my place to impose my beliefs on them that they need to do better if they
      want to consider themselves successful. I would hope that they, personally,
      would want to do better. But if not, that is their choice. It isn't for me to
      decide what they should do.

      On the other hand, I have had more than a few people here tell me that
      my income is nothing to be so proud of, that there are people here who
      spend more a month on outsourcing than I make in a month.

      Well, I am proud of it. But, having said that, I shouldn't impose my beliefs
      that my level is all you need to reach or should reach. Each person should
      strive for whatever they want. To that end, I have to be able to see where
      my business model is limiting and make that knowledge known to others so
      that they understand that doing things MY way will probably only lead
      them so far. I feel I owe my customers THAT much.

      To this end, I have stopped being both judgmental and opinionated about
      my personal business beliefs. It took me a long time to get to the place
      I am in now.

      So Vishal, I will leave you with these words. Take them for what they mean
      to you.

      Don't let others make you feel that you're not doing well. Sometimes just
      that feeling of accomplishment is enough to give you the boost to want to
      do better. By the same token, if you want to improve, don't let others
      hold you back by telling you that you can't unless you do this or do that.
      You will find your own way to do things. In time, when you're ready, you'll
      find the methods that will take you to the next level and you'll be ready
      to take them on.

      Hope this helps.

        Thank You Vishal,

        I'm very Grateful for your Thankfulness.

        First I must say Congratulations for not giving up. Many people give up within their first 90 days online.

        Just to give you a little perspective, for about the first 18 months online I was in a total survival mode struggling to pay my bills. I was also fortunate to find Travis Sago's eCourse as well. At that point I was already into article writing and article marketing so it was a perfect fit for me to expound upon many of the methods.

        One thing I hope you are doing is making money from every single piece of article you write. There are dozens of ways to make money on the back end of creating your own quality content including but not limited to creating your own reports and eBooks, etc.

        And I'm sure you've already realized it but I'd make sure you build some sort of list if not already started. Not telling you what to do just wishing I got the message about building lists and sticking to it when I first started.

        I can only imagine where you will be with your efforts within the next 6 months.

        Cheers,
        Dean

          I have a theory for calculating income from articles based on the different people I know who've used this strategy.

          If your primary submission is to ezinearticles and

          # Each of your articles is reasonable quality
          # The articles lead people into making some kind of product purchase...immediately or at least at the site you send them to.


          Then you'll average around $1 to $1.50 a week income for each article you submit...more or less directly.

          The real money is in creating an email list from the articles and in monetizing the traffic in other ways but I think that is a good guideline that may be helpful to people trying to make a living this way.


          So if you want to make $600-$900 a week write and submit 600 good quality articles leading to a product online.

          At 2 articles a dy that would take you around a year (very acheivable).

          At 3 articles a day that would take you 200 days or a little over 7 months.

          At 6 articles a day it would take you 100 days or a little over 3 months.

          Very acheivable.

          A well thought out strategy combined with intelligent list building and site design would result in much better figures than these.

          Also if you though through submitting your content in other ways you might multiply your results too.

          But it is pretty neat to think that you can start out with no money down and do this to create a substantial income.

          Kindest regards,
          Andrew Cavanagh

            Andrew, I just did some calculations and son of a gun, you're right on
            the money.

            I have about 1200 articles at EZA, so that should be about $1200 a week
            times 52 weeks, comes out to $62,400. Last year out of my $122,000 plus,
            I made about $67,000 from my articles. So your figure is right in the
            ball park.

            I have no idea how you figure $1 to $1.50 per week per article, but good
            going. I'm impressed.

            Lets see...

            I once wrote about 10 articles leading to a landing page with an optin that promoted a certain membership site. I got paid $100 upfront and $60 recurring each month.

            I have made about $300 in 3 months from those 10 articles. Which comes out to about $25 a week. So that $2.50 a week per article using an autoresponder.

            So yea, building a list definitely provides you with greater profits.

    Even if you outsource...

Actually I just don't really like to write. But like your headline "a long term and reliable online income method", I will continue to write.. hope you all do the same. =)

      Yes it's a shame that all these strategies take some real work.

      It would be so much better if you could just do nothing and someone would send you a check.

    Congrats to you! Isn't it wonderful when the results start to show? Sure let's you relax just a bit when you know you are doing something that IS working!

    About the $1 per week comment...

    It's funny, because I have readers email me so often and ask...

    "How many articles do I need?"

    My answer is always.. "If I told you that each article you write will bring in $1 a week - how many articles DO you need?"

    For some reason that really inspires them and they become an article writing machine!

    Great thread....

    Keep up the good work, Vishal!

      Jennifer is right on. If you sat at your computer and motivated yourself with the thought: "This article could make me $1 a week for the foreseeable future," you'd write, and write some more!
      I've just topped fifty articles, and learned a lot about the right way doing it, so I'm going for more after this post.

    I truly agree too.

    Article Marketing has never failed me so far...

    In fact some of the 200-300 words one can really give me good sales compare to using PPC sometimes.

    The internet is a information highway...so definitely using articles marketing is the way to good income online..

    Provided we do it the "right way".....I supppse..
