I Am Making An Average Of One Sale Per Article

40 replies
INTRODUCTION

After writing 13 articles in 4 days[from 16th-19th,Sept.2010] in a niche
I knew nothing about,I logged in to my Clickbank account and saw $280.This was on 6th Oct.2010,after about 17 days of writing and submitting those articles.

From the above experience,I came to realise that for every article I wrote,
I made an average of $20.I don't know,maybe because both of the products I was promoting is selling at $49 each,and I was paid 50% referral a sale,that is about $20 or so.What I am trying to say is that for every article I wrote,I made one sale or thereabout.Or maybe I could make more? .I don't know.



HOW TO MAKE MONEY WITH AFFILIATE MARKETING

The first point point I would always like to emphasize when it comes to
making money online:

*CHANGE YOUR MENTALITY**

There is so much money on the internet more than you can ever imagine.And people like you and I are pocketing those "sweet cash" every seconds of the day.

Many persons have come to the bad habit of hurting themselves,by becoming their number one enemy.Simply because they have had some online failures,they tell themselves they cannot longer do it.How wrong!

Just know that there is always light at the end of the tunnel.I tell you,those failures you have had might just be the only experiences that you need to succeed.

**BE FOCUSED.And you will definitely get there.

***One Important Point:One problem I see with most people,especially newbies[maybe,you are one of them] is that they have concluded that article marketing don't work.They feel that article marketing never work,they fail to write and submit not even a single article a day.I was once like that but I had to change my mindset when I tested and started seeing the difference and the huge result that article writing brings for my affiliate marketing business.The medicine is this:just do it,never mind whether it would work or not,because it would always work,as long as you do it right.Ok?.That is that.



Why AFFILIATE MARKETING?

There are many benefits I would have loved to list about Affiliate Marketing,butin order not to bore you with many unnecessary talks,I want to say this:Affiliate is one of the easiest way to make money online,if you know how.And I will show just how to do that.Period.



THINGS THAT MATTER IN PROMOTING A PRODUCT?

The secret behind a successful affiliate marketing campaign is finding and
promoting a product that is in demand,I mean a product that fills a ''need'';a product that many people are in need of.Remember nothing sells faster than what is already selling.Before I promote a product,these are some of the qualities I look out for.Please note that these qualities are just my ''personal opinions'',nothing more.And I feel they can be of help to you as well,since I have never regretted using them.They are:

-1- I made sure the product's sales page is well-written and convincing.As far as I am concern nothing substitutes this.I have this feeling that if a sales letter impresses me,then it would impress one or two persons like me.

-2- I don't like promoting low-priced products.So I make sure any product I am promoting pays me at least $20 or more for every sales I make.

-3- This is optional.But it has come to prove useful for me recently.It is the issue of bonus[es].I found it an advantage to promote a product that gives unique and targeted bonus[es] on the sales page.Everybody wants free stuff in one way or the other.So promoting a product with an extra bonus is sure an incentive for more sales,trust me.

Like I said earlier,these qualities are simply my personal opinion.And they have proved to be useful and has never failed to that effect.

Ok,I want to show you how to find high-in-demand products that has more or less those qualities that I listed above.Are you ready?.Good.




HOW TO FIND BEST SELLING PRODUCTS TO PROMOTE.....

Before now,anytime I want to find a product to promote,I used to go ClickBank.com,But I can't remember when last I visited ClickBank.com to find a product to promote.I will tell you why.
ClickBank has a ''marketplace search engine'' known as CBEngine.com.CBEngine is the hub for ClickBank's special activities.It is a place where you can search for quality and fast-selling products on the ClickBank Networks,and also get to know about new inventories and things happenning in the ClickBank community.

Now,let me show you how to find a high-rated products on CBEngine.Take the followingsimple steps:

o Go over to CBEngine.com.When you get to the site,check out at the bottom right-hand corner of the site,and you will find the search box.This is what you need.Lets assume you want to do a search on a product on ''romance and dating''.this is what you do.Go over to the search box,and make the following changes:

o After that,when you click on ''search'',the result you got is what I also got.



DESIGN A SIMPLE BLOG

Now that you have gotten a product to promote,the next thing to do is to design a simple blog around that niche or product.

Putting up a blog is an easy thing to do.There are many free manuals all around the net that teaches and coaches effectivey on how to put up a fine and quality blog.

Meanwhile,check out sites like Free-ebooks.net,Free-ebooks,net,etc,and you will find many of them.


ARTICLE WRITING:Is It Necessary?....

Now lets assume that your blog is ready,the next and the most important thing you need is traffic,traffic,traffic and nothing but traffic.The truth is that without traffic,no visitors.Without visitors,no sales.It is the plain truth.And you must not take this likely,if you are really serious about making money with affiliate marketing.Are you with me?.Good.

The best method - both in the short and in the long term - to drive continuous traffic to your blog is through Article Writing,itherwise known as Article Marketing[AM].The most important part of AM is that it is simply free;free advertising given on a platter of gold.I love this method very much that it has turned out to be my major traffic generating strategy,for now.This is because it has never failed me.

Another thing I love about Article Writing[AW] is that as long as my articles remained on the internet,it will always continue to drive traffic to my blog even for years to come.And I will continue to make sales over and over again,non-stop.



HOW I CALCULATE MY ARTICLE[s] WRITING,AND SUBSEQUENT SALES FORECAST

To tell you the truth,I put not less than 4 to 6 hours of work daily putting
up articles.And I write an average of 4 articles a day,averagelly.On a very busy day,I can come up with about 5-6 articles in a day[I do this myself simply because I enjoy writing].The fact is that it might sound demanding but I am really ''so good'' enjoying myself.This is because the fantastic results I am getting is greatly overshadowing my input and work.

This is how I estimate my sales result:As for now,for every article I write I make an average of 1 sales[this is just a simple average figure,as most times I have also observed more than 10-20 sales coming from just a single article,it depends on demand and niche].That is that.Like I said,if I make one[1] from one[1] article,it therefore implies that if I write 4 articles today,I am going to expect about 4 sales from those articles between now and the next 30 days.Depending on the product I am
promoting,most of the products I promote pays me an average of $20 per sale.This means I am making 4 sales X $20 = $80.This means an average of $80-120 per day.And mind you,I make more than that daily!.I have made up to $400 in a day.

Please Note:I am not saying all these things to boast and brag my "success".No.Far from it!.I am only saying all these things just to show you how lucrative AM is.

Please also bear in mind that you don't just write and submit articles,and expect to start seeing results in a few days time.No.Real and long term affililiate marketing campaign doesn't work that way.Before you start seeing results,you must be consistent.If it is 2 or 3 articles you are to able to write daily,you must make sure you write that 2 or 3 articles[even if it is just 1 article daily]consistently for the next 30 days or so,non-stop.There is no magic in it.In Article Marketing,you don't just spray
and pray.You must work,and what you put in is what you get.But one sweet thing about Article Marketing is that:IT WORKS! As long as you are ready and willing to put in the right kind of work,the results you will get will always amaze you,trust me.It is a pure fact,and I am enjoying it.Try it and see things for yourself.



EASY AND TRICKS WAYS TO WRITE A GOOD,QUALITY ARTICLE[s]

There are many ways to write articles, but I will give you the two easiest and fastest methods. What you need to do is just to "understand it", "apply it" and "do it" over and over again. It is that simple.

-1- The use of free eBooks: Places like
[a].web-source.net/free_ebooks.htm,
[b].free-ebooks.net,
[c].free-ebooks.biz,
[d].Etc,etc,etc


These are places where you can easily find any ebook on almost any niche you want. Go over to those sites, search for the ebooks you want, read and re-read them, and you come up with as many articles as you want. If you are diligent enough, it would only take you a few hours to do this. I have done this before many times and I am still doing it.

-2- Go to top Ezine Directories like,
[a].EzineArticles.com,
[b].GoArticles.com,;
[c].Etc,etc,etc,

Do a Google and you will find many of other Article Directories.Look out
for the search box. Now assuming, you want to write an article on "car finance". Type the word "car finance" into the search box and you are done. Take 2 or 3 articles that are related and you can write one article of your own from those 2 or 3 articles. Do this as much as you can. With this, you can come up with about 2-3 articles within the next 3-4 hours.



WHERE TO SUBMIT YOUR ARTICLES?....

Once you have your articles in hand,it is then time to submit them to Ezine Directories.Ezine Directories are places where millions of people visit everyday searching for quality articles to read on any particular niche of their choice,be it on health,childcare,politics,money,car finance,loan,etc.And not only that when you write a quality article[s],people will ''chase'' your articles[some might even come to love your articles if it is always good],you also have a very big opportunity to have your articles come up on Google.Now imagine a niche where you have 10,000 people searching on a niche and your article happens to
be among the first ten that comes up whenever someone search for that particular niche on Google,you will easily drive thousands of people to your blog without paying Google a dime.

There are so many Ezine Directories but the best of them are:

-EzineArticles.com,
-GoArticles.com,
-ArticleDashBoard.com,
-Suite101.com,
-Phantomwriters.com,
-ArticlesBase.com,
-Etc,etc,etc


One important point I want you to note here is this:Before you submit your articles to any EzineDirectories,whatsoever,the first place you need to submit your articles is EzineArticles.com.Once your article[s] is approved by EzineArticle.com[this normally takes 3 to 7 days],go ahead and submit to other Ezine Directories.That way you will have more backlinks to you blog,and a better probability of having your articles
appearing on Google or other Search Engines and Ezine Directories.



In CONCLUSION

I hope with tips and points that I have shared with you so far,will be helpful anduseful.The fact is that if you end up making $1000 between now and the next 30 days,what difference would that make to your financial life?.Great,if you ask me.Start small,but THINK BIG.Just Do It.

To our success,
Az Ozegbe.

    As an article marketer, you should know that a good title is one of the most important things when you write an article :p

      I have to disagree slightly. While I agree that using good keywords is important, you can have the best keywords possible in your niche, but if your content is garbage, you will get garbage results. To determine your keywords, just use common sense. What words would you type into your search engine when looking for something in your niche? Use the same words within your heading and article, and it will be effective.

      Many people think of keyword research as being the holy grail, and then neglect the importance of good writing. Without good copy, the best keyword research in the world will get little to no positive results. As in everything, provide value first.

      That's my take on it, anyway.

          Yes, I do. If you are familiar with your own niche, you certainly should know the keywords that most people would enter to find information on that niche.

          If you are working within a niche about which you know nothing, then, yes, I would suggest using a good keyword tool.

          If you are selling PVC pipe (simple example), most people would search for PVC, though a handful might search for poly vinyl chloride. Again, common sense can be a very useful, easy to use tool.

    Did you miss the key part between 'make the following changes:' and 'o After that'?

    And if you are article marketing, why do you not put a space after a period? At least Ezine articles won't accept that sort of stuff. Some of the others probably will.

    Do you get someone to proof read or edit them for you? Or do you just submit to the second class directories?

    I've considered changing my forum user name to 'baffled,' so it's not unusual for me.

    That is some very good information but the one thing that it is missing and most people will soon realize it, is Marketing Research or Keyword Research. Without it you are pissing in the wind. Because how do you know what people or talking about or even typing in the search engine to find your product and not to meant chine the fact of which keyword phrase is a Sale for your product.

    I'm assuming your money making articles are passed through a more rigorous editing process than your well thought out forum thread?

    No offence, but your grammar is poor. In all the experience I've had, grammar is a fundamental part of producing articles that get read and subsequently acted on.

    This is great info and it works. It's not 1 article = 1 sale for the majority of people. But the bottom line is this I have figured out.

    - find a high demand niche
    - do keyword research
    - write at least 3 articles per day
    - drive the article directory traffic to a squeeze page to build your list

    Now do this for say 30-60 days and im sure your list will be the size of 300-1000.

    Now market them a good converting offer or even create your own peoducts. I think it's a fool proof plan just takes work and time thats all.

      Sound advice. The trick is not to be disheartened if you dont see "instant" results. Just keep working and the traffic/sales will come.

    Wow!!! Good results.

    I agree with you, the key to results in article marketing is consistency. There are days when I seem to write tons of articles and no sales, but then there are days I don't write much and I make lots of sales.

    This is because all articles submitted over time will bring in cash in the long run, if you are promoting the right product and creating the right content and doing the right kind of keyword research.

    Great Post! Keep on keeping on. As an article writer myself, I just write and write. Find the buying keywords, find what people are typing into the search engines, and give them the goods. Sooner or later, with the content and help you are giving out, people will start talking, postings, and recommending your stuff.

    Just a couple of questions.

    The better article directories like original content, so after you've waited 3 - 7 days for ezinearticles.com to accept your article (how many do you submit a day???) you then submit your articles to a few other sites.

    Do you change these articles at all?

    Do you spin these articles a little (or a lot) for each directory you are submitting to?

    You did make article writing sound an easy and effective, not to mention free, way of getting traffic. It can be, but in your post you did gloss over the fine details.

    Such as each article directory having its own terms and conditions, which it is a very good idea to always read.
    They won't admit duplicate articles, or even articles that have the occasional word changed to make it sound different.

    Writing 13 articles in 4 days is a tremendous effort, and I applaud it. It seems it then took another 13 days to submit those articles. Did you continue writing some more articles during those 13 days?

    I'm not trying to be picky, just honestly curious as to how it was done.

    I don't want to refute your claims because it is you who made it. But probability wise, I find it improbably for me to write that many articles that sell on a niche you don't know anything about. Maybe I missed something, but the process you are writing here will take months for a newbie to learn, longer to master. To make it short, please let me see a sample of your article so I can make corrections to mine to sell as well as you. I have been conferred the Expert writer status by Ezine and yet I am not making any sale.

    Your help would be highly appreciated. But it should be on the point of view of a newbie.

    Dang, $20 per article on average. Whoa. I do agree that is definitely not average results there... but at the same time it proves that if your find good offers, provide decent/good info, this style of article marketing still works.

    And with people saying your post here has grammar mistakes or whatever... to me, that shows that you're out there doing it, making it happen ... and sales are coming in regardless. I do believe good content should be a priority, but getting out there and just doing it to get started is more important (at least at first).

    Sounds like you're doing awesome. Keep on chuggin'!

    When you join eZine Articles sign up for their tutorials and newsletters etc. They will send you really easy to follow writer tips. Also, download their Editorial Guidelines for Submitting To EzineArticles.com pdf and print it out and use it as you write your articles.

    Also, just Google "how to write articles" or some such search and you're sure to find lots of free info.

    ...and here on the Warrior Forum check out Jason Flaudlien he has some excellent writing products at really excellent prices that may be something you want to invest in.

    Also, start hanging out and reading the threads in the Copywriting part of the Warrior Forum. You'll learn a lot about writing there too.
