The Value of Article Submission

Free Internet Secrets That Will Instantly Drive Up Your Traffic and Sales
By Christopher Kyalo

The following 3 secrets revolutionized my life. For years
I had tried everything I knew with no success. It didn’t
matter that offline I was a very successful marketing
expert, online success remained elusive. The moment I
discovered these three secrets things changed dramatically
for me.

So why am I revealing them to you?

Good question. The facts are that lots of people are
already using them and making lots of cash and keeping
quiet about it. The thing about the net is that you can’t
keep a secret for very long. Besides I have plenty to gain
if you remember me as the person who was most responsible
for changing your online fortunes. It means I’ll be able
to sell you lots of stuff in future. The PR spin doctors
will tell you that I am trying to position myself in a
certain way in the minds of the public. For profitable
reasons of course.

So here are the 3 secrets.

1) Well written articles People on the net are always
ignoring this one. Boring plain articles will do nothing
for you. But well written, useful articles with valuable
information that solves problems will do everything for
you. Many times I’ve posted an article at one site and
then done a google search a few weeks later to realize it
has already been re-posted in dozens of other sites. One
sales enquiry I received today via email had a url link to
the site where the nice man had seen my article. I’d never
heard of it before and yet 1192 persons have already
viewed it.

2) It’s a numbers game When I first started using
articles, I didn’t think of the numbers involved. And a
lot of people who may have posted one or two articles and
forgotten all about it may be making exactly the same
mistake I made. I wrote one article and sat back waiting
for a response. I still got it (after about 3 weeks) but I
soon got wiser.

You must have heard all those statistics about what kind
of traffic a web site needs to be successful. All sorts of
crazy numbers have been thrown around ranging from 500 to
over 2,500 hits PER DAY. Now how does a site get numbers
like those without spending the national deficit on

With articles it’s no problem. Here is the math.

Supposing your article is viewed just twice every day at a
certain web site. If you post the same article to only 20
similar sites, you’ll have 40 hits per day. You need only
20 articles to get 800 hits per day.

And don’t forget my point number one. If your article is
half useful, they’ll be a viral effect. In a few short
weeks, one listing can yield dozens of other postings. If
you add 12 to the math above you get 9,600 hits PER DAY.

The lesson here is that you have to keep on producing new
articles and posting them all the time. I recommend a
minimum of 3 new articles every month.

3) Ebay about me page When you add this secret to secret
number one and two, you’ll break the bank – guaranteed.

Ebay has well over 1.5 billion page views per month. There
are well over 40,000 people who sign up for Ebay every day
- Sunday included.

Of course there’s serious money to be made from the
auctions or by selling something with a fixed price. But
you can profit on Ebay even if you are not selling
anything. You can use the About me page to put in all
sorts of information including a link to your web site.
Just by learning how to do this, you can dramatically
increase traffic to your web site or even to your posted
articles. This highly targeted traffic is bound to yield
sales for you, whatever it is you are selling.

I found Brian McGregor’s ebook, “The Ebay Formula,”
extremely useful in helping me understand how to use Ebay
to drive my traffic and profits. You can get the ebook by
emailing me at the email address in the resource box.

In conclusion I would like to assure you that with these 3
secrets, you can make lots of money online, even if you do
not have a web site. I’ll let you into a fourth secret. I
don’t have a web site myself. Too much work and expense to
maintain. But I make money without one. But that is the
subject of another article. And besides, imagine what you
can do, you who has a web site.
