Article Marketing for Profit – Make More Money by Educating Your Prospects

Article marketing is definitely the ultimate internet marketing tool. When done correctly, it can definitely give you everything that you’re looking for in order to make enormous sales and profits in the online arena. From improved page ranking to more traffic to more sales leads, to amazing revenue! You just need to ensure that your article marketing campaign has all the right elements and you can expect great results in as little time as possible.

Below are some of the things that you can do to ensure the effectiveness of your campaign:

  1. Educate first before you advertise. Some article marketers are too excited to talk about their products and services that they don’t realize that their articles sound like annoying sales pitches. Don’t be one of them. You see online users are not very pleased when instead of information, they get self-serving texts and info about what is being sold. You’ll get the kind of reaction and response that you want from your readers if you focus on educating them first. Know the exact information that they’re looking for and give it to them. It’s your best shot to earn their respect. When that happens, you will not have any problem getting these people to visit your website. As you know, this is the first step in convincing them to buy from you.
  2. Write more articles. Generate more traffic for your website by writing as many articles as possible. Although this can be tiring and time-consuming, it’s the best thing that you can do in reaching out to as many people as possible. Just ensure that you do not sacrifice the quality of each of your articles along the way. Remember, your articles are no good, no matter how many they are, if they’re not impressive.
  3. Create a need for your products. You can do this without inserting blatant ads on your articles. What you can do is talk about the problems that can be solved using what you offer. For example, you can talk about hair loss in details. Then, mention the product that you offer in your resource box and present it as the most effective solution. Doing this will help you make your offerings look more valuable to the eyes of your prospects.
  4. Ensure the effectiveness of your article marketing campaign. Make time to gauge the effectiveness of each of your articles. You would want to make sure that they’re getting enough attention in the online arena. Identify those that are usually left unread and figure out how you can improve them. Then, identify the article marketing sites where most of your traffic is coming from. These are the sites that you should prioritize the next time you distribute articles in the World Wide Web so you can avoid wasting time on those sites that are not really helping you in realizing your internet marketing goals.

Online MLM Marketing = Online MLM Education

Five Principles of MLM Success from Ana Gabriel Mann

Don’t hit on people.

Do not close people.

Be realistic. Do not make pie-in-the-sky claims.

Do not pitch-answer questions instead.

Education is Power!

These are five principles of growing an MLM business from one of my very successful upline MLM sponsors, Ana Gabriel Mann. I couldn’t agree with her principles more, especially when I apply it to the niche of online MLM marketing. Of course, these principles apply to every method of MLM marketing, but because online MLM marketing is just starting to mature, these principles crucial.

Online MLM Marketing is About Education
Ana’s background is in education. She has two master’s degrees and has been a university professor, so it’s not surprising that her principles of MLM success are basically about education. Having been witness to the kind of three-way calls Ana does with prospects, I can say that she definitely sticks to these educational principles. She never hits on a prospect. She teaches, and only to people who ask to learn.

How do these principles apply to marketing an MLM business online? Exactly the same way. If you look at the people who are successful at building a truly passive income stream from an online MLM business, you will see that they are educators. They teach. They answer questions. They offer prospects a realistic picture of what “working the business” looks like.

Each of these principles are so important for success in online MLM marketing that I’m going to dedicate an to each of them. This article is dedicated to the first principle, “Don’t hit on people.”

Don’t Hit on People to Build Your MLM Business
Here’s what Ana says about hitting on people:

“I don’t believe in the ‘hitters club’ but rather find that ordinary people are the glue of real networks. It’s the little guy who needs $500 to $2000 extra a month that [the] company is built on.”

In a physical setting, “hitting” on people usually means you talk about your business to anyone standing within three feet of you — the “three foot rule.” In an online setting, hitting on people means building online relationships with people only so you can tell them about your business. If you join a forum and all you do is post business opportunity ads, then you are hitting on people. To be a useful member of an online forum, you need to answer other people’s questions, pose thoughtful questions of your own, take surveys, and offer up juicy tidbits of useful information that other people can really use. Do you see the difference?

The successful online MLM marketers educate first. These people write educational articles. They post educational blogs. They answer questions in online forums. They offer educational webinars. They write and give away ebooks. They give always and first.

By doing the same, you demonstrate your MLM expertise through your online presence. Once you have done so, people will be attracted to click on your blog or website links. That’s how you avoid hitting on people online. This is not a baseball game, and you do not need a bat to build your business. You do need knowledge nuggets, words of wisdom, and a unique personality to build your MLM business online. You jive?
