    Hey guys!
    Just wanted to let you know. Finally after months of trying it seems that I've found something really good!

    My method: ezinearticles!

    I've looked for good clickbank products. found one and searched for longterm keywords with a low competition.
    Now I have written 5 articles. 3 Of them are already published and after only two days of beeing online I made 2 sales! This is a commission of around $30!

    I really didn't put much effort in it. Just set up a domain, redirected it to my affiliate link. And in the articles I've put my domain url. That's it! .. I don't even have a landingpage.

    So guys. This is no rocket science! Just try it and you'll do great!
    DO something and don't just read!
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 14

    Are you actually writing the articles yourself or just spinning other articles?

    ezinearticles is extremely good in SEO. It's no wonder if you make sale from ezine. Keep it up, If you scale it up, you'll get better income soon.

    Well I want to start bum marketing myself... but seems that I always come up with excuses to not to. I know it's easy and does not require any investments, but I literally can't push myself to start doing it.

    But what regards to topic, congrats mate. 2 sales within 3 articles, sounds amazing...

    The key is to do more of the same, keep working hard :)

    There is no substitute for HARD WORK as the benefits that accrue online or offline, will impact as more input more revenue :cool:

    Exactly, results only happen once you DO WORK (as my hommie big black would say).


    You need to actually do stuff, and you probably won't make money right away. But you'd be surprised how with your new gained experience from your failure, how you can take something currently set up not making you shit and turn it extremely profitable. The experience from any failure regardless of if you succeed or not will allow you to reapply it for the use of other projects.

    Think of it this way...
    If you never tried and failed you will never know how to succeed.

    Congratz! What was the search volume and competition of the keywords? And what kind of articles did you write (gener info, product review, etc)?

    He's not gonna give the niche and his keywords away. I'm asking what I'm asking because I'm not sure what kind of keywords I should target myself.

    doesn't ezinearticles scan submissions for content that goes to afflinks? that's a huge nono on yahoo answers and associated content so one would think the same applies at ezine. If they do allow it, well i guess i need to start writing over there instead of elsewhere! :)

    eza doesn't allow affiliate links, you can link to your landing page/squid lens, and then to your affiliate link, but no direct linking....i believe

    The OP said he links to his website and then redirects the traffic to the affiliate page. Does ezine view this as the same thing as linking straight to the affiliate page?

    Here's #9 from their TOS

    You declare that you will not send in any articles with direct affiliate links in them. We reject articles with direct affiliate links. It is ok, however, forward/redirect to an affiliate link from the top-level of a domain name you own. For example, it is permissible to forward to an affiliate link from:

    http://your-company-name.com/

    ...but it would not be permissable to forward to an affiliate link from:

    http://your-company-name.com/page.html
    http://your-company-name.com/subdirectory/
    http://your-company-name.com/subdirectory/page.html

    This is one of our many article quality standards.

    Wow what a huge response. Htank you very much guys!
    To answer a few questions:

    - YES you have to work hard. I mean.. I've written so many articles before, I've spun so many articles before, I've tried to make dollars without a domain but with a free domain like 6x.to because I just didn't want to invest anything...
    And guys I always failed because the most hard work in my opinion is picking the good, converting product. I've promoted 3 products, have written many articles on them ( 4 articles per day on each product means 12 articles daily ) But after a week when the articles were online I didn't got sales with them. Finally a few days ago I've found the new product.. Wrote 5 articles about it and that's all!


    - I use only longtail keywords. Means every keyword which I use is at least 3 words long. I've read in an ebook that a good keyword would be one which has under 10.000 competitors when you look for the phrase match.
    Anyway.. Every of my keywords has under 1000 competitors when I search it in a phrase match.

    - and yes ezine articles hates affiliate links. But they allow you to redirect your affiliate link from a real domain which you own.

    - As I already said I've tried to spin the articles and submit them to ezine.. but guys.. save the time and don't even try it.. It may work with other articledirectories.. but will never work with ezine!

    - Till today both articles were 64 times viewed.


    A tip for everyone who wants to earn with ezine:
    Don't write your own articles if you aren't creative.. I search always for my niche related articles in ezine and just rewrite the articles I found.. For me it's much easier...

    Some Advice:

    A Common newbies mistake is when they make their first sale or start seeing some earnings. They get all excited and lose focus..

    KEEP TRACK OF VISITORS: Install Google Analytics on your website to see exactly where traffic is coming from and to see exactly which keywords people are using to find your website.

    KEEP TRACK OF YOUR ARTICLES: Don't just let em go and just let em sit. Ezines has a nice display center for all of your articles to view the click thru ratio to views.

    SIGNATURES: While it sounds like your signatures are doing just fine, try using different signatures and once again viewing your article's stats to see which one is more effective. You would be surprised what the smallest change can bring.

    So just because you started earning, you're not in the clear yet. My very first sale online, I did a few back flips and wanted to drop kick a baby i was so excited, but I just let it sit and didn't see anything for 2 weeks. No one told me how to keep track of visitors or wtf any of that stuff even was.. I was just thinking "YAY MONEY!!".

    yes man! this is exactly what I'm doing now!
    trying to write different signatures and looking for the keywords which the visitors use. ezinearticles has got a really good option for that actually!

    THanks man!
