Affiliate Marketing With Articles – 4 Tips On Being Effective

Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to start an online business. It’s free to get started and if you take the time to learn a few simple skills you can make a lot of money pretty quickly and easily. Your main job as an affiliate marketer is to drive as much targeted visitors (customers) to your site. One of the very best ways to do that is to use affiliate marketing with articles.

The basic idea of article marketing is that you will find a list of 5 to 10 good keywords for your niche. A ‘good’ keyword is a keyword phrase that has at least 1,500 searches a month but less than 20,000 competition. Once you have your keywords you can write several articles per keyword phrase. Make sure your article provides some beneficial information for your reader.

When you submit it to the article directories you can provide a resource box;

This is where you can promote your website. You can provide a direct link here so that when people read your article they can click on the link in the resource box and be taken to your website.

While you can’t do any blatant selling in your main article, you can use the resource box to do your selling for you. Each article directory has it’s own rules, just follow those rules and you’ll get published.

Affiliate marketing with articles method is so effective for several reasons:

1: It’s free. You can write an article and submit it for free. It won’t cost you a cent. You can even use a free keyword tool online. You can submit as many articles as you want to.

2: You will establish yourself as an expert in your field. Don’t let this freak you out. Some people, especially those who are just starting out, can get intimidated by this. But just remember, you don’t have to know everything to be an expert, you just have to know more than most of your readers.

3: If you write a good article and target the right keywords you can have your article show up online for months, or even years. So, it will take more than one article, but you can write a few articles and have them stay online and drive traffic for a long time to come.

4: Submit multiple articles to several article directories. Don’t submit all the exact same versions. Instead submit several versions of each article. As long as they are mostly different ( I understand that if you are using the same keyword there will be a lot of similarities).

There are a lot of great resources available online that can help you build your business. Many of them are free and most of them are easy to use. affiliate marketing with articles is one of the best methods of driving traffic to your website.

  1. I used to do a lot of article marketing, and you really have to submit a lot of articles in order to get enough traffic to your website. In fact, articles that I submitted years ago are still bringing me traffic each month.

    However, I find nowadays I prefer spending my time writing the content for my own website, as in the long run, I get far more visitors in this way than the article directories bring me.

    One also has to be careful which article directories to use, as some were dropped by Google a while ago, so there is only a small bunch left that are still getting results with their articles.

      Hello Michel. Thank you for the comment on my article.  

      All the sites listed below offer DoFollow backlinks. All the websites have high domain authority, page authority, and PageRank itself and will help you to improve the domain authority and PageRank of your website too. Therefore you will get a ton of targeted traffic from submitting your article to these article directories.

  2. Hi and thanks for sharing this. It would never occur to me to write an article with anything near 20,000 competition. for articles on my own site, I spend a lot of time trying to find keywords with a competition rating of less than 20 or even 10 even if the monthly traffic is only around 20. This has to be one of the biggest differences between writing for your own site and writing for an established articles directory site. I noticed that you already responded to another comment with a long list of article directory sites. I wonder whether there are any that you particularly recommend. Are many of these niche-specific or are most general. This is an interesting topic and one that I really need to learn more about. Best regards, Andy

      G’day Andy. Thank you for your comment. I recommend submitting your article to all the directory sites that have a category for your niche. I advise you to use the same article you have written and give it a spin, change a few words for each directory to make it unique for the search engines.

      I’m ecstatic that I have helped you Andy and I hope my articles can help others.

      All the best to you and your online business.

      Cheers mate 👍😀

      Jason Brody.
