The Key to Article Marketing: Do It Again, and Again, and Again
It finally struck me that it might make a little bit of sense to post something up here for those article marketers out there. Since article marketing is growing by the day, and since my inbox has about gazillion people all wanting to know the secret to article marketing, I figured what better place to put it than right here on my blog.
Oh, the secret, you want to know it right now? Ok, well here it goes. Consistency. Consistency, consistency, consistency. That's it.
Toss all the other rules of thumb out the door, if you are consistent in creating and submitting freshly written articles, then nobody can stop you, not even page-rank-1043-adobe.com type sites. How is that possible you might be wondering? Let me break it down for you this way...
Most sites start out as little diamonds in the rough, surrounded by so much rough the site's owner doesn't even believe it's a diamond. Yet little by little, fresh article by fresh article, they become more and more relevant in the search engines for the keyword terms they contain.
Want to get ranked for the keyword phrase Texas Oil Tycoon? I bet if you did 75 articles on the term alone, titled each one with that phrase in it, and submitted them all to ezinearticles.com within 6 months you'd hold the number one spot, whether you owned a lick of oil or not.
The point is, be patient, be consistent, be blind to the lack of results when they don't come, and be expecting of the leaps and bounds when they do. I know that's how I felt when I noticed this blog right here jumped 18 spots in Google's natural results for my namesake, not bad for an occasion post about football here, and an occasional post about life there. Not bad at all.
