Does Article Marketing Really Work?
There has been a lot of confusion lately about article marketing. The questions I’m hearing include:
- Does article marketing still work?
- Should I use a “spinner” to create articles?
- Why was my article not accepted by the big article directories?
- How can I write a great article?
- Where can I find someone who will write articles for me for a reasonable fee?
There have been more questions than these but these are the top five I’m hearing.
Today I want to address the #1 question I get about article marketing … “Does article marketing still work?”
ARTICLE MARKETING WORKS BETTER THAN EVER …
WHEN DONE RIGHT!
I KNOW it works because I’ve been doing article marketing for over 10 years now. In fact, I was doing article marketing BEFORE there were article directories! You may know that I started as a member of the DOE. What did I do when I first started as a member?
Did it work? Less than 18 months later I bought the company!
It worked then, it works now and you CAN do this. Even if you don’t want to write articles!
To prove to you that article marketing works NOW I took a screen shot of a search for one of my recent articles. When I say recent, I mean that I published this article for the first time ever on January 13, 2010. Today is March 4, 2010 so it’s been about six weeks.
You can see the article, and it’s published date (near the bottom of the article) by clicking here. It will open in a new window for you.
Before you take a close look I want to point out these facts.
- I wrote this article using the EXACT formula I teach Directory of Ezines members and members of my private Article Marketing Live site.
- I wrote this article in less than 2 hours, using the formula mentioned above.
- It took my article distribution person less than 1 hour to submit this article.
- She did NOT use software to submit the article. All of my articles are hand submitted.
Now take a close look and you will see there are over three thousand hits on this article title.
SUPER IMPORTANT: Please notice that I searched for the article title AND my name WITH QUOTES. When you do that in Google you are telling them to only return results that match the EXACT PHRASES. So the only pages returned have the article title AND my name on the page. This is the most restrictive search possible, which means these are real results. Searching for the title only created over 70,000 hits but that was a false positive. To know what is really going on you have to search the right way.
Bottom line, my article is being published on over 3500 web pages in less than 2 months!
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN AND WHAT CAN IT MEAN FOR YOU?
I believe it means two things.
FIRST: It means this … article marketing works! Period. Do it right and it works. Use junk articles and it will never work no matter how hard you try.
SECOND: You have to learn how to do article marketing the right way and get started today. Why? Because article marketing works and it is FREE to do!
If you do not know how to do this I will teach you how!
