    My marketing company works with 150 college interns here in the states on a semesterly basis.

    I have been in affiliate marketing for a while but I am very new to article writing. I believe I can leverage my interns to come up with timely quality articles. But I dont know much about the industry.

    Can someone shed some light? What should I do next?

    Any help will be rewarded in the form of free articles.

    HELP ME HELP YOU! ;)

    Build 10 high quality article directories and add 30 articles to each of them every day. Start by targeting long tail keywords that are easy to rank with minimal backlinks and after few months you will be making nice income.

    I agree with scripteen, or rather build 5 , later you can flip them for a very good price. Or just sell the service?

    First, a big thank you for replying back. Im sorry in advance if I sound like a complete idiot. Here goes...

    1. What is an article directory? Is it like an article bank with 30 article deposits focused around one long tail keyword?
    2. What is a long tail keyword? Is it a set of words used together to denote the difference between a surfing user and a buying user?
    3. I can see that backlinks are links pointing in to my site. Without the backlinks, wouldnt it take long for traffic to start coming in?
    4. When you say nice income in a few months, can you please be more specific? I know a lot depends on quality and the work I put in, but it would still help to know a ball park.
    5. To write 300 articles a day will cost me between $1000-$1500 per day. I do not have the bandwidth financially to keep that going for too long. In 30 days, I would have 10,000 articles. How much money can I expect to make through the approach you suggested in month 2?
    6. Why can't I just start getting keyword requests from people who do this for a living and start selling them the articles at $1-$2 profit per article?

    Thank you so very very much in advance for any of those questions you might answer. I will go out of my way to repay the favor. Thanks again.

    Luka. Thank you for replying.

    By flip them do you mean sell them to a buyer for x amount/article? How much would I expect to make for say 2000 quality articles focused around long tail keywords? 10,000 aricles?

    And by sell the service do you mean get keyword requests from people and 24 hours later send them their 500 word quality articles with their keywords worked in very naturally at about a $1 or $2 profit per article?

    Thank you once again. As soon as I can, I will repay the kindness.

    i say build 2 or 3 quality authority article directories. i agree with the above posters when they say write keyword optimized articles and start ranking for easy long tail keywords. this seems like the best and most profitable option for you OP. make money from adsense, cpa, and cpm. 300 articles a day should quickly give you a nice decent income.

    Hey Chip. I checked out Flippa. Did not know that existed. Thank you.

    Alright. I can create several article directories. Keyword research i looked up and that seems doable as well.

    SEO optimized articles might be a little tricky. Is software available to do that? Or is as basic as including the long tail keywords multiple times in each article.

    Backlinking: Now this is where I start to lose the plot. How do I efficiently do this? What software should I use?

    Last question: Say I build an article directory and add 30 articles a day to it. I do moderately well with the keyword research, optimization and backlinking. How much will I be able to flip that directory site for in say 2 months? What about 6 months?

    Thank you in advance for any questions you might answer.

    Thanks for the advice Empire. I'll ask you the same question I asked Chip.


    Say I build an article directory and add 30 articles a day to it. I do moderately well with the keyword research, optimization and backlinking. How much will I be able to flip that directory site for in say 2 months? What about 6 months?

    How much money will I make through adsense, cpa and cpm at the end of month 1? month 2?

    I know there are a lot of variables here. But it would be great to get some idea here.

    Thanks again.

    Jay,

    Why not reduce your risk by simply offering a service to sell articles. If they are truly well done, you can sell them for $5 to $10 (depending on size and quality). That would equate to $1500 to $3000 per day if fully booked. Do that for a few months while you learn the in's and out's of becoming an online publisher.

    Also, I would suggest NOT doing an article directory but do an 'authority site' on a specific topic like health or diet or cars or insurance or whatever topic you enjoy. Then take some of the best content and instead of selling it, build a large website that fully encompasses a big topic.

    Then do another one, then another one. Income potential is an unknown but easily hundreds per day if done right.

    p.s. Here is a very good resource to start reading to get you going.

    There are many approaches that you can follow when it comes to having lots of content.


    In such case a better scenario will be to run article writing service to generate income from day 1 and in the same time build some niche blogs that you can use as content destination when your team is not fully booked. you are still making money every day while building another income source which is these niche blogs who will become authority in their niches due to daily rich content.

    you can monetize these blogs by adsense or affiliate programs or just sell them. there are many buyers who will buy a niche blog with too much unique content even if it has no income.

    Jay, 300 articles a day is huge!

    Here's what I would do if I had these kind of resources.

    1. pick an industry that you know your writers can write good content about, preferably something that you enjoy and care about also so that you don't loose interest in a month or two.

    2. do some keyword research into your industry using the google keyword tool to start, if you are more advanced you can use wordtracker and market samurai also. Identify keywords with high search volume. With this sort of content power you need not worry if there is too much competition, even millions of competing sites can be outranked with this much original quality content and some black hat link building.

    3. go to godaddy domain auctions and buy a couple aged domain names with high page rank, preferably with titles relevant to your industry. Buy as many domain names as you want to have sites. I would go with 3-5

    4. build wordpress sites on these domain names, add all the fancy link building and seo plugins that you can find here. There are lots of threads on this here.

    5. give your article writers basic seo instructions such as keyword density, title keywords, tags, image names, blah blah etc. Send them basic wordpress tutorials so that they will post all the content for you.

    6. set up social media around your market, add facebook features to your blog such as fb comments, like buttons, logins etc. Syndicate all blogs with a twitter account also.

    7. let this whole thing run for about a month, don't link out from these sites unless it's to each other.

    8. once you've got some content and are starting to pick up momentum, begin your link building, I would simply drip xrumer and scrapebox links into these sites.

    9. three months from now you will be getting decent traffic, keep evaluating your targeted keywords and adjusting and adapting as necessary.

    10. figure out a way to monetize all this, your own products would be best, if you don't have any or don't have time to make them then choose some relevant affiliate products from clickbank or what not. Worst comes to worst you can slap on some adsense.

    From here on out it's just a numbers game, the more traffic you get, the more money you make. Your traffic depends on quality and consistency of your articles and quality and consistency of your link building.

    With these resources and this model there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't be able to do really well if not take over almost any market on line.

    Best of luck and feel free to ask any other questions.

    Failing all that, you could sell them.

    What word count and niche are they in? If they're cheap enough and in and around the right niche myself and others would buy them.

    Jean.

    This option I like because I can manage to pull it off immediately. Please correct me if I'm wrong. What I'll need to do is

    Step 1. Tell the interns about the basic SEO concepts as Rush 7 says in his post "such as keyword density, title keywords, tags, image names, blah blah etc."
    Step 2. Go around Black Hat forums and try and find buyers.
    Step 3. Receive key words from buyers and the size limit.
    Step 4. Ask the interns to research the keywords and using SEO techniques that they have picked up write articles.
    Step 5. Send the articles in to the buyers within say a 24 or 48 hour period.
    Step 6. Collect the money and repeat the process.

    Am I right?

    If I am, then this could be one option I could pursue. Calling it OPTION A

    Thank you for the help Jean. Please correct me if I've overlooked something. Sorry I had to edit out your Quote. The site refuses to let me post because of certain keywords.

    Scripteen.

    As of now this does seem like the best available option. It is quick to implement and relatively easy to scale up.

    What is the best way to create a constant stream of buyers? I'm guessing a lot of my traffic would also come from repeat customers who were satisfied the first time round. Is that correct?

    Thank you once again.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.
    Home Page:
    To find buyers, you would pretty much just post threads in various forums that you have a team of article writers and offer articles at X price.

    Be sure to red the forum rules of the places you are posting so there is no conflict with their TOS.

    Also, make sure that you have discounted rates for people like me who buy articles in bulk.

    Sound like you have a good group behind you... good luck.

    First I need to say how I am quite literally blown away with the help I am getting. As soon as I am in a position to do so, I will repay the favors in kind.

    For your suggestion Rush,

    Step 1. Pick niches/industries that the interns will be good at. Since they encompass a lot of majors, this should be relatively easy.

    Step 2. Finding the right keywords. Exactly like you suggested start with Google and get more aggressive from there. That comment about competition really helps.
    Step 3. Black Hat Link building. How would I go about doing this?

    Step 4. Pick domain names that already exsited to help with rankings. Brilliant! It might be the norm, but I would never have thought of it myself. If and when the directory starts getting closer to being an authority, does it make sense to invest some money and buy more expensive auctions for your best authority sites?

    Step 5: Once I have the keywords and the website and the SEO work in place, get the articles written.

    Step 6. Social Networks. I am confused how this would help. Can you please elaborate a little?

    Step 7. Why would I not link out for a month? Actually why would I link out in the first place? I am sorry if I am asking some basic questions. But I did not have to worry about any of this for my email marketing campaigns.

    Step 8. Link building once momentum picks up. Xrumer is in Russian. But I'll figure that out. ScrapeBox I can barely understand any of the lingo. But I'll spend more time on that and then get back to you'll.

    Step 9: Find good products. E-books my own or clickbank's work the best. Worst case scenario Adsense or other Affiliate programs. Right?

    Step 10: Tweek things around to make the system more efficient. Better keyword search and better link building. Once again, I need to figure out what link building is all about.


    Seems like this is the second option. Calling this OPTION B. Its a lot more complicated with a very high learning curve, but from what I gather its the path I will need to take if I want to squeeze the maximum juice out of my resources. Scaling up will need to go through this second option correct?

    Thank you Rush for the time you put in to helping me out.

    I'll get back to you once I am a little more structured. Sorry I had to edit out your Quote. The site refuses to let me post because of certain keywords.

    I have a few questions from the buyer's perspective.

    1. Are you'll more interested in bulk articles on a particular niche or tailor made articles around a keyword and word count?
    2. How much can I expect to make for both options?
    3. For the tailor made option, what kind of turn around time from making the request to receiving your article is considered the norm?
    4. If I do everything correct and do manage to pull off 300 articles a day, 9,000 articles a month, how many can I realistically expect to find buyers for in a month?

    Thank you in advance.
