How 7 Articles Made Me $4,800...
Copyright 2005 Anik Singal

It's a strategy that the top marketers have been using for
years and years now - they even tell us to do it, but most
of us are just too lazy! Well, I crawled out of bed and
decided to test the strategy and was absolutely blown away!

Over the course of two months, I wrote a total of 7
articles that I published in a few places (I'll show you
where in a minute). Then, I got sick as a dog and was in
and out of the hospital.

Guess what? During the time I was sick and not working, my
articles went to work for me - it was amazing. In just a
few weeks I sold about 20 memberships to
AffiliateClassroom.com, and am still selling till this very
moment.

Over the course of a year those 20 memberships are going to
earn me about $4,800 in profits. Can you believe that? Here
is exactly what I did...

I wrote an article of around 500-700 words on any topic
related to internet marketing ranging from "How to use solo
ads" to "How to get approved for Google Adsense." Now,
you're asking, well how do I write articles?

=============================
How to Write Killer Articles
=============================

1. Headline - The most important to get someone to even
read the
article.
2. Introduction - To hook the reader
3. Body
4. Closing
5. Resource Box - The second most important to generate
traffic

~~~~~~~~~
Headline
~~~~~~~~~
Focus the most on the headline, introduction and the
resource box. Your headline needs to be catchy and needs to
make a promise - the person should know exactly what they
will get after reading your article.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Introduction
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Once they're reading your article - you need to hook them
to read the whole thing, that's the only way they will read
your resource box.

Resource Box
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is where you tell them something about yourself and
then make an offer to get them excited enough to click a
link and visit your website. For the best response, send
them to a page where you can offer a fr-ee course.


============================
Why Should You Use Articles
============================

I'm going to cut through the chase and get to the point,
you use articles for various reasons - they do more for you
than you can imagine - here are just a few:

1. TRAFFIC
2. SALES
3. Brand yourself
4. Brand your website
5. Fre-e incoming links to your site
6. Become known as an expert...

Bottom line, NOTHING bad can ever come of writing articles
- only good. That basically means that you have no excuse
to not write articles to promote yourself.


============================
Where To Post Your Articles
============================
There are many places that you can start promoting your
articles, here are a few:

1. Submit them to ezine publishers
2. Submit them to article directories
3. Submit them to websites

Now, all of this can be very time-consuming unless you
develop a system to help you. I use 3 different automated
systems to help me: A service called SubmitYourArticle.com,
a software called Ezine Announcer and I also submit
directly to ezines who accept articles.

If you want to learn exactly where to get these resources
and how I use them, please visit
http://www.AffiliateClassroom.com - we did an entire case
study on this topic in February, 2005.

The bottom line is that you want your article to get out as
much as possible. However, once it's out, you never need to
worry about it again! It will continue to promote for you
for years to come without you ever having to manage it.


==============================
Final Strategy You Should Use
==============================
I really recommend directing your resource box traffic
directly to an opt-in page. Start building your list with
this strategy and you can profit for a long time to come.
Think of the infinite profit potential if you build a list!


=============
Final Note
=============
Do not expect this strategy to pay off in a day, a week or
even a month. If you really want to use this strategy then
be ready to be at it for months. Put in some work now and
you will profit from it for years to come.
