Does Article Marketing Still Work?

I have been seeing many people on the web lately asking if article marketing still works.  I would have to say that it would depend on the results that you are looking for and the purpose.

Here is what I mean.  If you are article marketing strictly to gain traffic to your website or blog, it will take you a lot of time and a considerable amount of articles in order to get a decent amount of traffic to your site.

If you are using this method as a backlinking strategy, you can gain a lot of good backlinks from high page rank (PR) sites.  This will help your site rank in the major search engines where you can get a lot of good organic traffic.

The best thing that you can do when article marketing is to be consistent because the steady feed of work will grow your site over time, making it a permanent fixture on the net.

When all of this is done, you will definitely see the financial reward in the end.  If you want this site to be a long-term sustainable business, than slow and steady wins the race…

Is Internet Marketing Right For You?

Are you trying to make a career in Internet marketing?  Are you having success or failure?  Most of the time people fail because of several reasons that I am going to touch on in this blog post.

One of the worst things that you can do when you are trying to learn to market online is to listen to too many different marketers.  This is where paralysis sets in.  You have so much information coming at you that you don’t know what to do and instead of picking one and working on it you do nothing.

Another thing is not focusing on one aspect of Internet marketing.  When you first get started you need to figure out what area of online marketing that you like and drill into it.  Most people just sway with whichever way the wind blows and that is just not going to get it done.  It’s best to pick a specialty just like a doctor, lawyer or any other professional.  There are tons of different ways to make money online.  You have to pick the way that best speaks to you for your best chance at success.

The last thing that I am going to talk about in this post is never seeing a project through to the end.  This is very common because we are too busy these days and have too many things to distract us.  No wonder A.D.D. is seemingly on the rise!

Success in anything is never guaranteed but you can greatly increase your chances for success in Internet marketing if you take note of the reasons that I have outlined here.

Is Internet marketing right for you?  Questions, comments or just a statement, they are all welcome in the comment box so leave one…

Secret Traffic Sources

Remember the other day when I talked about my Canadian friend Christian Weselak of PPC Ninja?  You know, the guy that got banned from Google Adwords about 5 months ago…

Well guess what?  He has five traffic sources that are very secret that are easier, better and even more lucrative than Adwords.

The ones that he uses, though secret, are very similar to Google.  It’s shocking that he has been able to get up to the $50,000 per month figure using these rare traffic sources.


You can take a look at the video right here:

Secret Traffic Source

Christian is different than most of the Gurus out there because he actually does this stuff as his primary way of making money online.

As I mentioned before he has been doing affiliate marketing for six years and has made millions and recently won a Super Affiliate Contest with one of the CPA networks.  They flew him out to beautiful Costa Rica along with an exclusive group of other winners.

That’s him talking in the video right here:


Not even the experts are talking about the stuff that he is teaching.  This information has not been released, not even to the Guru community and even the big affiliates are not happy about the info that he is sharing.

If you’d like a lead on secret traffic sources, go and take a look at the video now because he is pulling it down in about 48 hours.


By now you are probably thinking that the methods are probably Facebook, MySpace, PPV or something like that but it’s not.  It is about traffic sources, CPA networks and how he was able to make over $500,000 in only five short months and even won that free trip to Costa Rica in the Super Affiliate contest.

I have to say that this is one of the very best traffic videos that I have seen and I couldn’t keep it to myself.

YouTube Branding – Are you a brand?

There has been a lot of talk going around about video marketing and YouTube branding.  How do you know when to brand your company or when to brand yourself as the face of the company?

This is only complicated if you think about it too hard.  In today’s online marketing world your brand is just about everything.  It must be recognizable and unique.  But most of all it must be liked and trusted.

Most large fortune 500 companies brand the company and rightfully so.  They really can’t afford to make everyone connect with a person that might be replaced.  That’s why some use a cool or funny character for people to bond with.  The character can’t leave or be replaced unless that’s what the company chooses to do.

With the insurgence of the Internet and video marketing, smaller companies have discovered that with the popularity of social media people prefer the more personal approach.  That is why more and more companies are beginning to see the light and put a face or real person for people to connect with.  It goes a long way towards trust and being liked.

Even some of the large companies have begun following suit, just look at the Sprint commercials headed up by their CEO.  Social media has changed the game for the foreseeable future.

But now with the huge popularity of video and video sites like YouTube, anyone can brand themselves and create a large following around the world.  The Internet has truly erased boarders.

So if you are a medium, small or even an individual person just starting out, the playing field has been leveled because you can now use YouTube branding and literally create an empire from absolutely nothing.

Are you a YouTube vlogger or celebrity?  Let yourself be known by leaving a comment.  I’d love to hear what you have to say.

Alternative Traffic Sources – Google’s Not The Only Game In Town.

I was speaking with a friend of mine the other day about alternative traffic sources.  You might have heard of him.  His name is Christian Weselak of PPC Ninja (CPA Traffic Dojo coming soon) and he was one of the many people that lost his account with Google Adwords back in 2009.

For most of the people that this happened to this was a real business killer!  It literally sent people away kicking and screaming because huge incomes were lost overnight.  People already knew that Google really doesn’t like CPA all that well but no one expected the arbitrary shutdown of an estimated 15,000 accounts.

But did this hurt Christian?  Nope!  He did what I talked about in an earlier post and that’s to diversify your traffic sources.  It didn’t hurt his business at all because he uses alternative traffic sources (some known and some secret).

In fact after six years online he still makes $4,000 to $5,000 per day online with his methods and alternative traffic sources.  So do yourself a favor and don’t rely on just one source for your traffic.

Do you have some secret traffic source gems?  If you like, you can leave some in the comments to help out my readers.
