    Buy a cheap domain name and redirect it to your offer. This will allow to pass a lot of the article directory filters. If you don't want to do that set up a free squidoo lens or webs*com mini site for free and choose a good keyword to center them around, 1500-5000 searches per month with low competition should do great. This enables you to work on a top spot for a high volume keyword while you bring traffic in from all your other free methods.

    You want to focus on very long tailed keywords to write your articles about. Even if you only get 1-2 hops,clicks, impressions, or whatever per article, it adds up once you keep churning them out. Keyword research is the biggest factor of a bum marketing campaign.

    Assuming that you follow Travis Sago's method which is semi outdated in effectiveness, it will work for you with a few tweaks.

    Just make sure you get #1 rankings for your long tail keywords by bookmarking,pinging, and backlinking your articles and web 2.0 properties.

    I had my first successes using bum marketing, and it is a timeless method if you put in the work.

    It can still work but your time would be better spent building up your own site instead. So whatever keyword you were going to target with your bum marketing, just buy a domain with that keyword in it and post the article on your site. Then SEO the site instead of some article directory.
