    Hello boys and girls.
    I just wanted to share something with you all. It is the story of how a 400 word article (Press Release) is bringing me money every month.

    Well...that's about all there is to the story... :)

    Few more details.
    I have to pay every month to host the PRs with the PR distribution service.
    I did and do write my own PRs.
    I do buy backlinks on Fiverr.

    ETA: 1 Week after publishing it started to make money. Slowly but surely the amount started to grow and grow...and finally this month it made $570.

    Ask questions for more details - but know that i wont give you the URL or the product i'm promoting.

    Here is a sweet treat for your eyes (and mine)

    PS. This is a result of 1 PR.

    Who said a week? I've built about 5k backlinks over 1 month time.

    Usual bookmarks, senuke monty (or something like that) and a few EDU/Wikis

    Congrats on your success! Are you using pre-sale LP's?.. or users go to product page straight from the article?
    Thanks.

    Nice stuff, mate
    Quick question...are you promoting your own product, or someone else's as an affiliate?
    Can you detail the format of the PR? Not details that would reveal your niche, just something like these examples:

    a) Headline, followed by intro text, followed by loads of (useful/useless) info, followed by small promotional message and link

    OR

    b) Headline, followed by review, followed by promotion

    OR

    c) Headline, promotion, nothing else...

    also, do you write your PR in a similar fashion to the way you would write articles (loads of useful content), or keep it short and sweet (mainly extolling virtues of the product and promoting it)?

    Answers to those questions would be much appreciated, and I "think" they're general enough for your niche and method to remain private, but feel free to just ignore my post if you feel otherwise.

    about 5k - senuke full monty, bookmarks, wikis and EDU

    Here is the format of my PR.
    Main KW in Title + benefits/side-effects/other facts - followed by a strong verb like: revealed, explained, exposed - by my website.

    Then i go into
    Introduction + a few facts in favour of the product
    And from here i just go to the offer's page and rewrite the info in my own words and format. I keep it as official as possible (less hype - more facts). I am letting them decide that if it helps others than it will help them too. I dont push to the sales page.

    Then a short 2-3 sentences long resume with link to offer.

    That's about it.

    And i promote as affiliate.

    Seems like a good move as I assume you are paying 50 bucks p/m. Make most of it :)
