    A landing page is what you need most likely. Although I haven't tried it out myself, I've seen some people make awesome landing pages that actually do an extremely good job upselling the product. The conversions were higher than just directly linking to affiliate sites.

    Yes, exactly that is is the point of a landing page - that is why you need to do a good job upselling whatever you're promoting. Copyrighting in itself is a different science.

    In the first place, why are you using article directories as a traffic source? Why don't you try SEO, or if you have some cash to burn PPC.

    purchase a cheap .info domain name and forward with masking using your affiliate URL.

    Create your landing page.

    Use the landing page URl in your resource box

    People click your resource box, they go to your landing page, and if your shit is good they will click your affiliate link.

    Repeat

    URL shortening doesn't work. If the resulting URL end in "?hop=affnick" it'll be deemed as a direct affiliate link. One way to combat this is to check out this: hxxp://blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/clickbank/386614-article-marketing-how-avoid-being-rejected-clickbank-affiliate-links.html

    The above works well. There are two ways to do it.
    Using a forwarding CGI script or just a basic html script on an index.html page.

    I think that articlebase is one of the best site to submit your article, I rank it at no#2 after the ezinearticles.

    Submit an article for reading not for marketing with correct grammar and paragraph brakes.
    Do not submit inappopriate content.

    Stay focus in Article marketing before moving on to PPC. Why ? PPC is not free :D you got to keep testing it for which campaign that has the best ROI and also what keywords....what landing pages...You might as well stay focus on Article Marketing first then after stable, move on to other marketing platform...Like Youtube or Facebook creating a fanpage...

    Articlesbase actually does a good job. I submit articles with SEO optimized in low competition and it ranks in the first page.

    In the past I got my articles rejected too due to affiliate links. All you need to do is just contact them and 'complain' there are tons of AB articles that use direct affiliate links (myself included) and 100% of the time the article is accepted again.

    Not sure, but I reckon its one dimwitted editor who has problems in life and thus goes the extra mile to reject articles that doesn't fancy him.

    That said, creating your own landing page with good content + cta definitely helps.

    Good luck.

    As much I know you are allowed to make anchore in your artilce; but the independance is guided by the rule of your article directory. Before doing this just have a look on the rules. May be some wan tyou to be more matured in that directory like forums.
