Article Marketing

What is article marketing? Article marketing is that you write an article, insert some links into it, and then distribute it to other’s websites. Those links can be affiliate links, or backlinks pointing to you own websites. I have heard that some affiliates made more than $100,000 per year without having their own websites, what they did was inserting affiliate links in their articles and published them somewhere. But now many websites do not allow you to put affiliate links in the articles, so I only insert links pointing to my own websites. There are two usages of these backlinks: The first one is that the readers of your article many click on the link and go to your website, so you have more visitors to your websites, and potentially more sales. The second one is that your websites get more backlinks, which help your websites rank high in search engines.

The first step for article marketing is to write articles about a topic, assuming you already find the product related to this topic. If you are very familiar with this topic, you can write the article by yourself very easily. But if you are not very familiar with this topic, you may try to find some other ways to do this work. You can search on Google, or go to some websites like EzineArticles.com, Hubpages.com, search articles on this topic, read them, and then have some ideas to write your own article. But if you are not a good writer, you may think about hiring one guy on elance.com (or a similar site) to write articles for you. Another good way to write article is using a tool call “Instant Article Wizard“, which can search the internet and automatically generate an article for you in the topic you provide, and then help you re-word it to avoid duplicate content. It is a very excellent tool. The service fee is US$77 per year, and I think it is worthy this amount of money.

After you have your article, you can spin it into many versions, so for each article you submit, it will be unique content and avoid duplicate content. I use a tool called “Magic Article Rewriter” to spin article, it is pretty powerful. You need to spin more than 50% of the sentences or phrase to make each version unique.

Then you can start to submit the article to many different article directories. There are there types of directories you can target on:

1. Article directories like EzineArticles.com, Hubpages.com. They have many visitors, which may actually read your articles and click the links to visit your websites. You need to make sure the articles have really good quality, so the visitors are really interested in your articles, and click the link within it. Then you have a good chance to pre-sell your websites. You may even write separate articles for these sites.

2. There are many general article directories. You can submit the spun articles to thousands of this kind of directories. Also there are many tools which can help you automatically distribute articles to these types of networks. So you can submit articles very efficiently. The tool I used is called “Article Marketing Robot“, which is also very helpful. Your may not expect many visitors from these websites, but since you get many backlinks pointing to you own websites, it can help your websites rank high in search engines.

3. Submit your article to Article Marketing Automation (AMA) networks. You need to joint AMA first, and then write the spinnable articles in the AMA’s format, then submit them to AMA. AMA can help you submit the articles to blogs in AMA’s network. There are many blog owners joined AMA in order to get free articles, so you may have may blogs to submit articles to. According to my own experience, AMA will submit each article to 1-3 blogs each day, and finally submit each article to about 50-300 blogs, depending on how many blogs are related to this topic. The procedure is totally automatic after you submit your article to this network.
