Introduction to Article Writing for Affiliates

Internet marketer Travis Sago calls it "bum marketing". Whatever you decide to call it, writing articles to promote affiliate programs is one of the most effective ways to promote affiliate programs. In fact, it's one of the best ways to promote any product or service.

There are several reasons article writing is superior to other methods of promotion:

  1. You don't have to know anyone to create an effective promotion.
  2. You don't have to know search engine optimization, although learning how to research keywords helps.
  3. Article writing is more viral than most other methods of promotion. Write a good article on your topic, and it will promote the product for you for years.
  4. It is an easy marketing technique to automate. Write an article a day or a couple of articles a week, submit them, and Article Marketer's automated submission takes care of the rest.
  5. You are building value into your product. By providing helpful information to your potential customers, you influence their buying decisions. They are more likely to buy from you than someone who just posted an ad.
  6. You don't need a website. Although it is easier to market affiliate programs with one, you can improvise. You can easily create a free blog or Squidoo lens to promote your affiliate products.
  7. You don't have to be a writer or a copywriter to write great articles. Writing great articles is about sharing information with your reader in a conversational manner.

Anyone can write an article. Knowing something about your topic certainly helps. For those who don't know how to write an article, this course will teach you.

In the next lesson, you'll learn how to choose an appropriate topic for your article.
