Article "BUM" Marketing and ClickBank – A Documented Journey

A marketing newbie wrote…

 After doing a tonne of research on article marketing (or “bum marketing”), I’ve decided to put this method to use by promoting as many ClickBank products as possible. I have a goal of reaching a sustained $100-$150/day. It’s pretty ambitious I know, but a recent eBook told me that after working hard for 4 weeks straight “and you are not seeing $150 or more a day I will eat my Russian fur hat”. So let’s actually put that to the test!
As I have a tendency to give up on things that don’t quickly produce results, I’ve decided to keep you updated with my progress as a sort of inspiration. At least the proof will be there on whether bum marketing really does work or not.

Great job Liam.
Keeping a diary and sharing it with your peers is an excellent way to stay motivated. I recommend Liam keep at it.
It paid off.
Liam made his first sale after 9 days using “bum marketing”, which I’ll explain…
Bum Marketing is where you put in a bit of effort in the beginning and get paid automatically after you build some momentum without any additional work.
Affiliates who use this strategy focus on Search Engine Optimisation (free search traffic) sent to article directories. Over time, they start ranking for related searches and get traffic to their articles. Potential customers read them, and then click a small link in the signature of the article to buy.
If you’d like to try the method, you’re going to need to produce a large number of articles that use common search phrases around the product on offer.
The method is simple, but tedious in the beginning.
Rewards, however, are incredible.
There are two problems, however, that Liam faced.
#1. Articles only got traffic for the first 5 days after approval.
#2. No Article received more than 100 views.
So what’s the solution?
Keep in mind that a 700 word article on a topic you already know will take at least 20 minutes to produce.
Approval and Ranking in search engines takes TIME.
And an article is only visible on the Article Directory’s home page for a brief window of time, after which fresh article will replace it.
Don’t be daunted by the large number of competing affiliates who promote the same offer in the same directory.
The trick is to produce MORE articles and dominate every long-tail keyword searched for by people who may buy the Clickbank product.
It’s not difficult, just a long tedious process.
At the YaghiLabs Internet Business Academy, we show our students a very simple way to get produced FOR THEM TENS of unique and related articles DAILY.
You won’t even have to lift a finger. You’ll just fill a simple form with your requirements, due date, and someone else will do all the hard work.
You only pay from revenue, never up-front.
What about the second problem?
If your article only receives 100 views and only for the first 5 days, you’re hardly going to be “bum” marketing,, are you?
The solution is simple.
In Module 7, I share a technique on “traffic focus” which creates gigantic momentum placing your articles and videos on the FRONT PAGE of directories for months on end.
We’ve used this technique to the point that we literally dominated the front page of a popular directory with as many as 10 articles for MONTHS.
They eventually had to manually remove our articles from the front page, to give someone else a chance.
It’s simple…
We held a $2,000 Mastermind where we shared the exact technique and every student article produced that day hit the front page and remained there for weeks.
