Article Marketing Tip...Unless You Want To Make Money
There's one lesson I want you, an article marketer, to
Take everything you've read, studied, watched or listened to
about article marketing with a grain of salt.
In article marketing, different niches need different
approaches for it to be profitable for you. If it were as simple as "copy n' paste", everyone would be doing

REPORT" device to drive leads, but what if your niche could care less about a free report and
want to buy the solution to their problem -- now?

for you to speak to them in their language. When you accomplish this, you can dominate it with a series of
well placed articles that get massive amounts of traffic, sales, and attention.
