    Ezinearticle works well, you just have to keep the articles coming, and use good keywords in your backlinks.

    Ezinearticles is the way to go. Here's a good formula to article market on Ezinearticles.....

    Use long-tail keyword phrase in your articles 2-3 times throughout your article and keep your article short (300-350 words). Also, don't use long paragraphs - Make sure that they're only 2-3 lines long.

    You can find good long-tail keywords by doing a search in google....Enter your phrase
    with quotes surrounding it and if you see 50,000 search results or less, you got a winner!
    20,000 or less is ideal! It takes practice but soon you'll find there are tons of phrases you can find.

    Be sure to have a compelling resource box at the end of your article that will motivate your readers to click on your link!

    Good Luck!

    Well, since you've got a landing page, PPC, hands down is going to be the fastest most cost effective solution. Yet given your niche, I can understand why you might find it tough to go PPC.

    If you haven't already, I would still do a small targeted campaign to see which keywords convert. It will same you a lot of wasted time and effort when it comes to article marketing.

    To go ahead with the article marketing:

    1. I would come up with 10-20 solid articles and post those to ezine articles
    2. Take each one of those original articles and mash them up to create another 5 derivative articles from each, those I would post to the other article directories.
    3. Next, I'd make a wordpress blog in a folder/subdomain on the same location as your landing page i.e. "yoursite/blog" Using the Write Again plugin (available from one of the guys on this forum) you can pump those articles into the blog with some feeds related to your keyword. This will help boost the ranking of your landing page in the rankings.
    4. Ping and promote the blog
    5. Create an e-mail feed from the wordpress blog and post it to a blogger blog
    6. Make a You Tube video or two showing the survey sites you are promoting and link those to the landing page
    7. At this point, its probably been a while since you've looked at your articles, so grab them again, give them some edits and post the edited versions as a series of Squidoo lenses.
    8. Finally, gather all this content you've generated, turn it into some sort of downloadable pdf and distribute on torrent sites and as an opt-in download from your wordpress blog (might as well start building a list at this point)

    Remember, with article marketing 90% of it comes from how compelling you can make the headline. It's the great, shocking headlines that get the clicks and the downloads. In the body texts, give away your one best piece of information and people will find the landing page link irresistible.

    Needless to say, it's a lot of effort to build bum campaigns. Outsource where you can, and remember it takes time to fully see the benefits of article marketing. You'll get results, but they will only be a good as your landing page converts so make sure you've got a winner before you invest the effort.

    I generally submit 5 articles to ezines first. Once they are accepted, I submit the same 5 (with different titles) to 9 more article websites with the resource box going to my original article at ezines and my landing page.

    I will also submit the same 5 articles on my blog and 9 more hosted blogs (wordpress, blogger etc) again with different titles.

    I will make a squidoo page to compliment the articles.

    I will them social bookmark everything (I know some social bookmarking sites don't accept ezines but every little helps!)

    I generally pick slightly different keywords for each article, ensuring competition is low.

    Hey guys.
    I'm also trying to make money with ezinearticles.
    I have already one account with 5 articles live and 150 articles views (is that actually good?)

    I have created 3 more ezinearticle accounts. and submitted to every account 7 articles. Now I'm wating to get all the articles approved.

    one thing I'm not sure about whether it is good or not: I've spinned many articles and submitted them to ezinearticles. They are at least 50% unique. most of them are 57% unique. Is that enough for ezine?

    so is that the right way to go? Should I keep on submitting spinned articles?
    btw: I'm promoting only one clickbank product in all of my ezine accounts. Will that be successfull? (I mean at least one sale through all these articles; the gravity of this product is very high. above 350)
