How to use Article marketing to have Internet marketing success

Many Internet marketers spend thousands and thousands of dollars per year on outrageously expensive advertising. Many marketers forget the power of Article marketing.

Article marketing is one of the best ways to drive customers to your website for no cost at all. What better way to make sales on a slim to none budget? Article marketing is definitely your answer.

You can submit your articles to hundreds of directories for free! This creates a bunch of traffic in Google, especially if you do your keyword research correctly.

The key to successfully being an expert article marketer is to do proper keyword search and to insert the keywords in each article.

Once you have done your keyword research, you need to write a 100% unique and compelling article that keeps your readers entertained long enough to make it to the resource box. The resource box is your money making section!

This is where you are going to insert 1 anchor text link and 1 link going back to your website. This is how customers are exposed to your website from each article you write. Many people fail at article marketing due to not having a compelling resource box and choosing the wrong keywords for the product they are trying to sell.

Many article marketers also make the mistake of inserting keywords that are too competive, i.e those searched too many times a day. These keywords should be avoided as much as possible.

It is hard getting potential customers to your product, especially if you are using saturated keywords. Look for keywords which are searched between 30-700 times a day when doing your keyword research.

Some marketers have problems using Article marketing because:

- They don't have the writing skills.
- They don't have the time and the energy to create their own articles, and
- They can't afford to hire a ghost writer to write their articles and blog posts for them.

So what's the best alternative to writing your own articles? PLR content. PLR stands for Private Label Rights which allows you to use content from articles, blog posts, e-books, and the like written by someone else and turn it into unique versions of your own.

You will be given the right to rewrite the content in any way you'd like it to be and claiming it as your own by inserting your own name as the author.

I hope this article has helped you in realizing the value of Article marketing and I wish you the best of luck!

Remember, never give up. Internet marketing is a tough business, but with the right marketing tools you should have easy success.

In any Internet marketing business, the best and most efficient way of getting customers to buy from you is through the content posted in your sales page or website. Customers won't be able to see tangible products or actual books online, so the best way is to give your customers an idea of what you are trying to sell is by writing about it.

Choosing Work From Home Careers

Self employment is on the rise and it can seem that every one is looking for some form of it. Mothers would like to stay home with their families without sacrificing income and retirees are looking for ways to supplement their declining government funded income. Earning money at home can require a good amount of determination but the flexibility of working for yourself and doing something that is enjoyable can be the best pay off.


Generally people don’t know where to start when considering work from home careers and often assume that starting a business is the only way. While self employment is starting a form of business for tax purposes, creating a something like a store online or a physical location is not the only way to work. There are many forms of work that can be done and all that is needed is a bit of creative thinking. For example, many people have left the outside work force with some specialized skills which can be very useful in becoming a consultant.


Looking to hobbies or knowledgeable areas is usually the best place to start. Other forms of work can be selling items online, designing websites or graphics, answering phone calls, reading and responding to emails, freelance photography, home decorating and organization. The possibilities are quite endless as there is always a need for a new product or service as well as the many companies that fill positions by hiring people to work at home.


There are many ways to go about finding work from home careers and what is left is personal preference for the area chosen. Doing what is fun and comfortable is key to having a successful amount of income here and most likely one reason for leaving or not returning to an outside job position.
