Who else is thinking about using article marketing for their traffic generation strategy? Are you sick and tired of paying for PPC ads, learning new “underground” techniques and trolling after every new “guru” tactic of the week to finally earn what you’re TRULY worth online? If you said YES….the simple truth is that article marketing is probably the BEST, easiest and most elegant way to generate boatloads of backsides to ANy site, service or offer, you choose…and often, make it happen in a hurry. (and for NO cost other than your time)
With this in mind, and as someone who has written thousands of articles that have generated multiple millions of readers in just a few short years, let’s look at one of the MOST common questions I hear.
How MANY articles do you need to write to make a full time living online?
Want to know the answer? It depends on the niche. And on YOU. And on whatever other traffic generation strategies you are using. And how strong and sophisticated your sequence, sales process or marketing methodology really is.
How so? Well…..take heed of a quick example…
In THIS niche, (“article marketing”) you have to write LOTS of articles to get lots of subscribers. Ironically…it’s one of the hardest niches there is, because there is LOTS of supply (articles like this one) and very little demand (people who are genuinely searching for article marketing help!)
What you are reading RIGHT now will probably struggle to get 100 readers. If I was making my living in THIS niche alone….I’d have to write 10 of these a day to really build a business. (if I was relying on this one approach alone)
But….there are OTHER niches that we’ve submitted articles in today, that will get TENS of thousands of readers over the next month, with many thousands of new subscribers, readers and a lot of affiliate sales to boot. Why? They are “sexier” markets, which have HUGE (and universal) appeal, and getting 10, 20 or even 50 thousand people to read a single submission in some of these markets is NOT uncommon.
The bottom line?
You will NEVER get rich writing one or two articles a day…..period. Quantity, is often as important as quality! I’d rather see a new marketer work HARDER, and create and submit more content CONTINUOULSY, than slave over that one perfect piece a day for sure! (because for better or for worse, when it comes to niche market domination, MORE is almost ALWAYS better than less)
