    I have a question I'm hoping some folks can help me with...It involves article marketing.

    Now, I know there is not one sure fire answer to this question but any input would be helpful.

    I want to start propmoting CPA offers (I've been accepted into 6 networks) via article marketing. Does anyone have a suggestion on a niche/product I can start with that has a decent payout? I can write 30-50 articles per day and get them accepted by EZA within 48-hours. I plan on using the anchor text to link directly to the offer.

    Writing is my best skill and I want to put it to good use. My goal is to reach the magical "$100/day" level. With any luck, and enough good articles, I will be able to achieve this sooner rather than later.....

    Thanks for the thoughts!
    At a minimum you are going to need a domain name because you can't link an EZA article directly to an affiliate offer.

    Respectfully,

      The previous poster is right. First you need your own domain, then you need a high converting landing page.

    Yes they both are right. Start with a domain name and if you do not have a lot of experience with building a website, then you may want to learn how to use a word press blog to set up your website. Then, you need to test, test, and test on which offers will convert well for you and which landing page works best.

    Well, I would maybe... slow down for EZA... you want your best quality there.
    For the other directories... crank them out.

    But you might be better off as follows.

    Per article:

    1. Main and best copy to EZA.
    2. Then run the article through quality spinning software and submit it to private article / blog networks. Make sure the spins are 50% or better unique and human readable-- not garbage. Takes about an 30 minutes to one hour per article.
    3. Also submit to public article directories.
    4. Backlink your EZA articles like crazy so they get some page rank and get indexed well.
    5. Look into making a "video" version of each article and submitting it thru TubeMogul...

    Writing 30-40 articles is pointless if they don't get seen by anyone.

    One article. Well linked to and well-distributed. Then the next article, etc...

    Just my 2 cents.

    That's great that you can write that many articles a day. I myself am a big fan of article marketing.

    In terms of niches, I don't think it really matters, I've been successful in multiple niches, ultimately whatever niche you can find with low competition should work well. When you do find a good niche, you'll want to milk it for what its worth and then move on once you think you've got the niche secure.

    Hi warriors,

    I have a question regarding article marketing.
    If we have a new article to submit and lets say
    we submit to EZA. Can we still submit that same
    article to other article directories, use it for blogs
    and for other purposes? Or do we have to re-write
    the article for each and every place that we submit to?

    That sure sounds like a good plan!

    As somebosy else has said, you'll need a domain name so you can forward it to your offer.

    As far as niche goes, it's up to you. It depends what type of offer you want to promote - email submits, zip submits, trial offers or full sales.

    Personally, I would be careful linking the exact same content back to EZA articles. For ranking purposes because you can get many different articles on the same front page of google for the same keyword I would at least rewrite the title. I have done this before and been able to get 3 or 4 positions on the front page of google for a keyword from different directories, which is much more powerful than just getting one position from an EZA.

      Hey... just to answer your first question...

      A great converting, good paying CPA & regular affiliate niche to get into (especially this time of year) is Electronic Cigarettes.

      Well, depending on if you feel comfortable promoting them or not.

      Although they are not intended to be a "stop smoking" device ... they can help someone transition towards kicking the habit or at least avoid most of the chemicals. That seems cool and all, but they still contain nicotene.

      That's the one thing that stops me from promoting. I just don't quite feel right about promoting something that still contains nicotene, so I don't.

      ... but at the same time, it may be a better option for someone trying to kick the habit and you really could help someone that wants to transition.

      Anyway, I thought I'd just throw that niche idea out there for you.

        I agree with this and I would add any detox or weight loss programs into the mix as everybody uses that as a new years resolution this time of year.....lol....even I have thought about it after all the food I ate over the holidays.

        You could just redirect and submit like mad if you are only in it to make money for a few months and you want to write every day for the rest of your life. However, if you buy a cheap domain name and you build it with your articles along with submitting articles you will be building for the long run. Trust me I built a site about 5 years ago that I wrote about 150 articles for and put all on the site along with submitting them. I have not touched it since and it still makes me over $500 a month and that is just one site.

          Add in debt relief solutions into that mix also. Starting right about now and for the next 2-3 months weight loss, debt relief and other evergreen niches hit their peak due to the new year resolutions made by millions.

          Good time to have products/websites related to those niches.

      That's a good point...at best you would only be able to get 2 articles from EZA on the same page of the rankiings. So, once you have your 2 EZA articles on the first page start occupying space with articles on other directories in order to completely take over the first page.

    If you are planning on using articles for CPA offers, don't waste your time trying to target keywords and performing SEO tasks as CPA offers get paused and canceled all the time, nor should you be concerned about providing high quality articles either since the objective is to get people to click your link to your landing page.

    Here is what you do;

    Set up a review page style landing page with a good review on it with affiliate links to the offer page.

    outsource your article writing to somebody in the for hire section. they needn't be more than 400 words, and they should be very basic in styling, acknowledging the readers problem then presenting a solution to it, no need to go into any great detail. You will probably need to outsource to more than one person since the aim is to have at least 1 article in the recently submitted category every hour on the dot, so 24 articles per day.

    Sign up to a premium account at EZA so you can schedule the release timing of your articles.

    Then lather rinse repeat.

    I say go where the money is and start with either the Health, Wealth, or Self Improvement niches!

    Here's what you do:

    1. Take your 30-50 articles and among them pick out your top 5 or the ones you know most about that will help your target audience to start out with.

    2. Then start with one and find the keyword with the lowest competition that relates to your article topic. Go on Google’s Free Keyword External Tool and search for keywords that are relevant to your topic and have a search volume of over “3,000″. Then search for your keyword in quotes (” “) on Google; I always search for competition 30,000 or less because then you have a much higher chance of showing up on the first page of Google.

    3. Put that keyword in your TITLE and in your first paragraph. Also, try to place your keywords, 3 to 4 more times in the article, but remember to follow the “Keyword Density” Rule.

    4. Write the article. Write an article with a solution. Make sure your article delivers on your title’s promise.
    5.Write a killer resource box. Really sell your offer. Remember the MAIN point of your article is to get a reader to click your link to go to your site.

    6. Submit 1-2 articles a day to your own blog or website FIRST. Then, once you've published it on your blog submit it to Ezinearticles, GoArticles and Articlesbase.

    7. Be Consistent and Keep Going! Continue publishing 1-2 "quality" articles a day and submitting them to the top article directories (meaning low competition, highly searched keywords and that provides a solution).

    Hope this helps.

    If you're still confused, just shoot me a pm.

    To be honest, I'd pick 5 first page submits, then 5 decent offers, buy 10 related domain names, 301 redirect them to the offer pages, then write 5 articles per day, for each website/offer, submit them to EZA and move onto the next day, for maybe a week, so that would be 25 article links to each site, I'd then build some links to each article page, purely to get it indexed and noticed by the search engines.

    Just go with a numbers game to get the ball rolling, once you've found something which is selling and your happy with, dominate that niche, write loads more articles for that offer, promote your articles well, build more links to the article pages etc. Then once you've dominated that niche, move onto the next.

    As many have said you will require a domain name and website that redirect to your offer.

    So far as niche/product is concerned you can literally write on anything, but as already mentioned you must do your homework, research keywords and find a niche that has low competition. Having said that, you can look at highly competitive niches and dig down a few levels and target long tail keywords with less competition. i.e. 'breast cancer' is highly competitive, but 'inflammatory breast cancer' gets thousands of searches with low competition.

    It's great that you can write so many articles in a day. I can only manage about half that!

    Good luck.
