So let’s get started…
1. Article Marketing – This is my favorite and very effective. There are hundreds of article directories online that allow you to post articles for free. So how do you make money with articles? Like this…say you want to promote a Clickbank product that teaches how to cure a golf slice.
First you go to Google and do a search using quotes for a keyword phrase like such: “how to cure golf slice”. You want to use a phrase that shows search results less then 5000. This will allow your article to rank on Google’s first page for that phrase.
Next become a member at various article directory sites and write an article using your keyword phrase in the title. Also make sure to use your keyword several times throughout the article.
Last there is a section called an “Author Box” or “Resource Box” where you can write a couple of catchy call to action sentences with your affiliate link to your product. Now people will see your title on Google when searching for your keyword and read your article clicking on your link to get additional information and hopefully purchase your product. Bam…you just got paid!
