Making money with articles includes using article directories. Article Directories are websites that house free articles.

 

The articles are usually put there as a promotion method by whomever owns the copyright. Each article has the owners byline so you know who wrote it or who owns it.

 

Making Money With Article Directories

 

Article directories are great places to put your articles so they’ll make you money. This method allows  people who are interested in your product or service to see it. You’ll be viewed as an expert, and they’ll visit your website. If you can’t write or don’t have any knowledge on the subject you are promoting—for example, an affiliate site—you can always hire a writer.

 

Quality money-making articles written by someone else can be expensive up front, but they’ll pay for themselves either through affiliate sales or selling your own services.

 

Say you’re an accountant working from home. You write an article and place it in article directories. People who are looking for that subject will read your article, see that you have knowledge and skill that is needed to do a job for them, and visit your website or contact you via e-mail. Your article just gained you a new client who may use your services regularly, but will definitely give you a nice profit at least once.

 

Since you have posted in a free article directory, others who have affiliate websites about accounting will use your article for their website. Since they must attach your byline (resource box) to it, you’ll have even more exposure for every website that re-posts your article and you’ll benefit from the traffic they get to their website.

 

Many Article Directories

 

There are numerous article directories. Using article directories to make money online is a great way to get your products or services seen. Placing a copy of your articles in some of the top directories will eventually help to bring more traffic and customers to your website, which will lead to new customers and more profit.

Internet Marketing for Fun and Profit

Why are you in the Internet Marketing niche?

 

People get in to this for various reasons, but I would have to say that the biggest reason is to make money. Whether to try to make this a full time gig, or make just enough to make a car payment, money is a huge motivating factor.

 

Unfortunately though, people get the wrong idea about just how “easy” it is to actually make any money doing this. In fact, some 93% of the people who actually consider themselves internet marketers don’t make a red cent.

 

Part of the issue is they are sold a bill of goods. They are told over and over how easy it is to do, that they can make money in their sleep, etc. What they’re NOT told is how much work is actually involved to GET to that point.

 

Then there are those who simply don’t want to make the effort. They buy product after product, open it up and see that work is involved, then stop right then and there. Then they wonder why they are not having the success they feel they deserve.

 

At the end of the day, it comes down to focus and desire. The true desire to succeed, then the power of focus to study and put into action what they learn.

 

It also helps a lot to laser focus on one or two particular things at a time. For example, focus on becoming a killer copy writer, or perhaps article marketing, or creating and selling products. In the internet marketing world, there are so many of these sub-niches that it can be hard to focus on just one or two.
