Affiliate Marketing Articles Are More Effective Than SEO And Even PPC Ads – Part 2
Probably the largest advantage articles have is that they stay on the web forever. Literally. The problem with PPC ads is that they stop the minute you stop paying. Articles on the other hand will deliver highly qualified leads to you for years. In fact I have developed a technique where I get my articles to generate lots of traffic immediately and then also long term as they get re-posted all over the net and also as the links pointing to many of them cause them to make it to the top of Google rankings.
Let us do a simple calculation. Let us say that each article generates an average of 20 unique visitors a day. That means that a mere 100 articles will generate 2,000 unique visitors to your affiliate web page every day. And these are highly targeted leads who have already been pre-sold your offer meaning that the conversion rate will tend to be very high. My figures here may sound like a little on the high side for those who have tried article marketing in the past and failed. But I hasten to add that the secret is in writing captivating articles which will get re-posted quickly to give you some very healthy growing growing traffic.
The other advantage that article marketing has that makes it win over PPC ads is the viral nature of well written useful articles that offer genuine help. That means you write a single article but within a short time you find that you have thousands of different sources who have re-posted your article complete with the link to your pages.
Sometimes articles get emailed and forwarded around. I have to admit that in building the traffic to one of my blogs from zero to 1.5 million hits, articles that I had written that were forwarded around played a big role in boosting my traffic and hits quickly.
To be totally honest with you, there is no virus I know of that spreads as quickly as a good useful article that is relevant to the immediate situation. And what is more a fast-spreading article virus has no known cure. The result is massive traffic to your site of highly qualified leads who can quickly put some cash into your pocket.
