When you consider the idea of developing content for your website what is the first thing that you think about?
What you can learn about writing for the internet?
Is it different than writing for a magazine?
Is it different than writing for a comic book?
The answer is yes and yes but it may not be for the reasons you think…
Writing for the web and beyond.
It used to be that publishing an article was something only done at a local newspaper, where you might see a story about a snow storm or a sports game, however, things have changed, the topics that writers have to write about are endless.
Do you write articles for a living?
Writing and blogging, blogging and writing, research, writing more, reading more, does this sound like you?
Writing articles, commonly called article marketing, has long been touted, as some kind of magic bullet, for marketing ideas and products.
However, how effective it may or may not be is debatable in fact just last week I came across a series that advertised the secret to article marketing, the fact is that article marketing is as article marketing does, make sense?
This is the topic, and how it relates to operating and publishing content on your own website.
The general idea for article marketing is to write keyword specific articles, which attracts readers (hopefully interested in buying something)
Which you conveniently have supplied links to affiliate products which you would receive a commission if you manage to attract enough people interested in buying and most importantly interested in buying right then, because most affiliate programs have moved to this time limit thing which sort of reduces the amount of commissions you can get.
So, the question remains, is Article Marketing profitable?
The answer is yes, it is profitable, but it remains unclear to whom receives the most profit, the writer, the affiliate or the platform where the article is published.
The answer may be a little of both, so lets examine the profit potential here.
- The Product owner is setup to be win the most here because they have the product.
- The publisher gets the traffic and perhaps some advertising money plus they usually get a little on the back end.
- The writer is last in this examination, and usually puts in a lot of work to produce the article.
So all in all just who is setup to be the most profitable?
In a nut shell, the product owner, is the one that wins here in this scenario, however, not everyone is cut out to be a product owner, and more importantly not every one is able to create a product.
Product creators are people who can think creatively and consistently product both content and products that are in demand and are in essense, are the movers and shakers of the internet Marketing universe.
Consider, starting at the bottom and making your way to the top, that way you know the business from the bottom to the top and back again.
