When I first got started in network marketing, I was really intrigued by thought of being able to write an article, submit it to an article directory, and sit back and watch the leads and sales roll in. Boy was I wrong! It took me while to realize that it was going to take a much larger effort on my part to produce the results I was looking for.
So, Is article marketing dead………
Originally I was told to just write and post everyday and that eventually I would build a presence that would garner some results. I know this had worked in the past for some folks, but I wasn’t being told the whole process. There were some HUGE steps that were being left out by people who weren’t even article marketing. These “teachers” were getting their massive results from Google before the slap halted our industry leaders relying on PPC solely for their lead flow. Not that I was mislead, the article marketing strategy was just evolving.
Flash forward a year and I was still struggling, maybe getting like two leads a month from my article marketing efforts. I stumbled on a webinar training that completely hit it out of the park for me. It laid out the step-by-step process that I was missing!
I learned all about link-building, article spinning, submission software, what was okay to do, what wasn’t. Questions I didn’t even know to ask were being answered one by one and I was literally brought to tears! Needless to say, it was a real eye-opener for me.
You see there are secrets and tricks, there is special software to make it easier, there are ways to turn one article into 10,000! You just need to be ready to accept this information and run with it. The results are not immediate, article marketing is a long-term strategy that requires massive action.
You’ll see what I’m talking about when you see what I saw. 8)
Maybe I wasn’t ready to receive this information for all of those months, maybe the people I was listening to didn’t want to give away their secrets, maybe they didn’t know either and were just passing on what they were told, I just don’t know.
What I do know now though, has put me on a path of true freedom and it’s rooted in what I learned that night about article marketing and myself.
So to answer the question, “Is article marketing dead?” I think not, it’s alive and well and still producing incredible results for all who choose to listen, learn, and apply.
