There are many people who view article marketing negatively as they find that it is too much work and there is not much money to be made from it. But the reality is that there is a huge amount of money to be made from article marketing and many have it and there are proven strategies and methods to monetize and profit from it. Let us look into these 5 proven and effective methods to make money with article marketing.
Here are the 5 steps to make real money with article marketing
1. Marketing Digital Products
There are millions of people who search the internet every day to look for solutions to solve many problems and the solutions that they are looking for are on How-To solve the problem of concern. The solutions to these problems predominately are solved with information. These are information-based solutions to the problem. You can promote such information-based solutions (digital products) by recommending them in your article resource box. You can promote physical products too however it requires you to do a product review in order for you to convince your reader to buy it. On the plus side digital products tend to give you a higher commission cut compared to a physical product.
2. Affiliate Marketing
One of the easiest starts for an aspiring article marketer would be Affiliate Marketing. The product is already available with your affiliate merchant and all you need to do is to write articles on the product and promote it in your resource box on your site. If you are publishing your article at any of the top articles directories, you must bear in mind that they do not allow you to do a direct link to your affiliate link. You would need a domain site and use it to redirect visitors to your affiliate link. You can also do a product review which would also be great for you as you can place your affiliate link on it.
3. Building A Subscribers List
Writing articles is also a very effective way to build your own subscribers list. You can include a free video or report on your opt-in page and with this, you can collect the visitor’s information and build them into your subscriber's list. On the back-end, you can promote your affiliate products or your own products to them. Vary the content of your article and emails to your subscribers with a mix of product promotion and emails of value content.
4. SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
Articles are a great tool for branding and getting traffic so you will need to bear in mind to maximize their strengths. You can use your articles to gain backlinks and gain a better positioning on the SEO. You need to also visit other popular blogs and leave comments of value. It is a collaborative effort and you need to put in the effort required. You would need time for this method as it will not be yielding anything much initially. But if you continue with the effort regularly you would be able to see a real rise in visitor traffic to your site in around 6 to 8 months. You need to be a bit patient with this strategy for it to be realized at its fullest potential.
5. Create Your Own Product
You can use the articles that you have written and compile them into a mini-report. The articles have to be topic/niche centric and if you find that the amount of articles you have is large enough, you can compile it into an e-book. The portfolio of articles that you have written is exactly what you need to create a digital product. If for example that you have written 10 articles on weight loss, you can compile them into a mini-report in a PDF format and sell it as an entry-level product or give it as a free gift to build your subscribers list. It provides you with an endless flow of possibilities.
I hope that these 5 methods that I have shared with you would motivate you to start writing and to see how you can actually make real money online and make a name for yourself by being an expert in your topic/niche. I wish you the best. Cheers!
