Article Marketing – 5 Tips for a Massive Income

Did you know you can make a massive income online, just by writing articles? “Article marketing”, which is basically writing articles which act as advertising, is popular online. If you can write articles, you’re golden.

So let’s look at five tips which will help you to turn your skill at writing articles into cash.

1. Write articles to promote affiliate products

One of the easiest ways to make money with your articles is to use them to promote affiliate products. When you’re promoting such products, you make a commission from every sale which was made via your link.

When you’re writing to make an affiliate sale, don’t write a “sales” article – you’re not trying to sell directly from the article. Write an informative article, or a review.

The amount of money you make writing articles for affiliate products depends on the number of (good) articles you can write each day.

2. Offer an article writing service

We all see thousands of advertisements a day. They’re everywhere we look. We’re force-fed advertising online, on TV, and on radio. This makes us deaf and blind to advertising.

However, articles cut through the noise. Articles are useful, so we’re not blind to them: this makes article marketing a perfect solution for clever marketers to advertise their wares.

Since articles do work well, many marketers are looking for people to write articles for them.

If you offer an article writing service, you will soon have more buyers than you can handle.

All you need to set up your service is a small Web site. Promote your site using… you guessed it, article marketing.

3. Create an article writing schedule

This is all well and good – you can make money writing articles. However, you need to be able to get the articles written in a timely manner. This means scheduling your article writing, and getting them written.

The more you write, the more income you can make, so schedule your article writing each day.

4. Turn your articles into reports and ebooks

Once you get into the swing of article writing, your articles will mount up. You’ve got hundreds (and over time, thousands) of articles on your hard drive. Don’t let them languish there. Use them.

A tip: if you write articles for others and get paid, the copyright passes to them, because your articles are “work done for hire”. You can’t repurpose those article – don’t reuse them, because you no longer have the right to do that.

However, you can certainly repurpose any articles you’ve written for yourself: you retain the copyright, and you can turn your articles into reports and ebooks to either give away, use as a promotion, or to sell.

5. Create a membership site from your articles

Enthusiasts love getting fresh, timely information on their passion. So once you’ve written a batch of articles on a topic which has eager readers, consider creating a membership site for them. As you write new articles on the topic, post them to the membership site.

What topics make good membership sites? Just about any topic which has magazines which service those enthusiasts. Consider topics like knitting, golf, home maintenance and repair, beauty tips – the possibilities are endless.

So there you have five tips which will help you to make a great income from article marketing. Start writing today.

4. Remember “Who are you?” and write the all-important About page

Trust counts on the Web. If you’ve been asked to write copy for a client, go to his Web site, and check the About page. If the client doesn’t have one, write one for him.

Here’s an excellent example of a About page,

Write Articles – How to Write More Articles and Write Fast

Write articles and write fast

Whatever your business, articles are a great promotional tool online. Many businesses use article marketing to attract new clients, and to maintain their relationships with current clients.

Many huge companies are using “native advertising” to overcome banner blindness. Articles are seen as editorial content, rather than advertising.

As you use article marketing, you’ll become aware that the more articles you write, the more powerful a promotional tool article marketing is – you get more clients and more sales.

So it’s important that you become skilled at writing articles, because of the boost article marketing gives your business.

Here are three tips which will help you to write more articles, and to write them faster.

1. Decide what you want your articles to promote

Before you start writing, decide what you want your article to promote. Do you want to promote a product or a service? A business? An affiliate product?

Whatever you’re promotional objective is, write the article to attract the readers who will be interested in what you’re promoting.

2. Write three to four points you’ll make in an article – this is your outline

Next, write down three to four points you want to make in the article. This is your outline. The outline will help you to stick to the point, and to write your article quickly.

Your mini-outline will also ensure that you don’t disappoint your readers: an article which fulfills the promise of the headline generates good will. If you fail to deliver, you disappoint readers, and lose sales.

After you’ve written your points, write a working headline. This headline may change later, once you’ve written your article.

3. Write articles in pairs

I often write three to four articles in one session. This is because it’s just as easy to write several articles as it is to write one, once you begin and get into an “article writing” mind state.

The ability to write several articles at once comes with practice. Start by aiming to write two articles at once. Depending on how much time you have to write, you may not complete the articles in once session. However, writing articles in batches will ensure that you write more.

So there you have three tips which will help you to produce a constant stream of articles to improve your business.

If you find writing easy, you can write for money…

Did you know that most business people struggle with their writing? It’s true. If you enjoy writing and find it easy, you can write for money, for business. In short, you can become a copywriter.

Copywriting is writing for business: promotional writing. Copywriters write material like advertisements and compared to most writers, they’re VERY highly paid.

The explosion of the influence of the Web means that copywriters are flooded with offers of work. Even new copywriters find it easy to get copywriting gigs and to build their copywriting services business.
