How To Get MASSIVE, Free Exposure For Your Website, Ezine or Affiliate Program

NO exposure = NO sales

It doesn't matter if you're promoting a product, ezine, e-book, affiliate program (or whatever); without constant're doomed from the start.

So, what's your approach to getting the word out -- search engines. . .FFA links. . .sit and wait?

I have a better idea. How about getting your name in front of hundreds of thousands of people each month for free?

There's one catch. It requires 30 minutes of your time.

I'm not talking about submitting to search engines, posting online ads, or using free for all sites.

The technique I'm referring to is 100 times more effective and doesn't cost you a cent.

So what's the secret?

Writing articles.

The concept is simple. First, you write an article about a topic that you feel comfortable with. Then, you blast the article out to other ezines and request that they publish it.

A ton of ezine publishers are always on the lookout for fresh and interesting content. The best part is, some of these ezines have upwards of 50,000 subscribers.

You could easily spend a hundred bucks or more on a one-time ezine ad. Or, write an article, and get your "ad" published for free.

Are you beginning to see the picture?

Just imagine getting your article picked up by 8 or 10 large ezines. You're name, product, ezine, or affiliate program is instantly broadcasted to hundreds of thousands of readers.

Over time, you'll hit millions of readers.

What's the key to making this work?

Well, first of all, it helps if your article is interesting and directly relates to your target market.

For example, if you sell an e-book about gardening, it would be a great start to target ezines on the same topic.

What topics would interest your target audience?

"How to Get a Gorgeous Garden in Only 1 Week"
"Are You Killing Your Garden By Using The Wrong Soil?"
"7 Easy Steps to a More Lush And Vibrant Garden"

Subscribe to a few ezines about gardening. Read some articles and analyze the format and flow of each article.

What makes each article interesting or a total bore?
What keeps you reading through until the very end?

"But I can't write!"

Nonsense. If you made it to Grade 9, you can write. And here's an important tip -- be yourself. Inject some of your personality.

Your readers will appreciate a little "color" in your writing. You don't have a personality? Well, then invent one!

"But where do I start?"

The easy part is, you're already connected to the most powerful and robust research tool in the world -- the Internet.

Simply hit the search engines on your chosen topic (i.e. gardening) and you'll instantly get hundreds of ideas.

The goal is not to plagiarize here, but gather facts, inspiration and stimuli from a variety of sources.

"Okay, so how is my article going to sell my product, e-book, ezine, or affiliate program?"

Once you've finished writing, editing, and revising your article, it's time to create your reference box or signature file.

The reference box or sig file refers to what appears at the end of your article or e-mail. You'll see a good example at the end of this article ;)

Your reference box is really a mini sales message. You'll notice that my reference box includes all the necessary components of a solid reference box. Don't forget to include your name, website URL or e-mail, and something for free. Get that reader to respond NOW!

Where can you promote your articles?

This is the easy part. Once you've written your article, 80% of the hard work has been done.

Start by submitting your article to the top article directories. Altogether, these directories receive millions of hits each month. Here are a few to get you started: Next, visit various online Ezine Directories and locate a few ezines in your target market. Contact each ezine editor (by sending them a PERSONALIZED e-mail) and request that they run your article.

It's as simple as that.

Now, go on and get writing!
