Article Marketing – Why Article Marketing and List Building Go Hand in Hand
Article marketing is one of the most incredible free methods of advertising online. In my opinion, there is just nothing else online that comes close to the power of article marketing, for free, available to just about anyone online, and can be put into a structured implementation that you can use everyday.
One of my greatest regrets (and I have over 600 articles in print now) is that I have not written more articles. My income is directly tied to the number of articles I write, and unfortunately I have had days when I didn’t feel like writing, and I wish that I had written, whether I felt like it or not.
Now what about list building? List building can be incredibly lucrative, if it is done correctly. Obviously, the list has to be set up correctly, and it has to be a list of people who are willing to buy from you, and who trust you.
And that is one of the things I really like about article marketing. When someone comes to my list immediately after having read one of my articles, they already have a feel for who I am.
They already have some kind of trust in me – which is exactly what I need to make money with my list. So by using articles to generate the traffic that builds my list, I am creating a huge list of subscribers who already know me, and like me. They respect me. They like the free gifts I send to them.
