Article marketing is one of the easiest ways to start making money online. You can work from home, set your own hours, and start with very little or even no money. Once you know the basic concept, you can start writing articles and earning money in no time.
The concept behind article marketing is that you write an article about a problem people have or a product that you know they want or need. Let’s take barbecue grills as an example. You write an article about a particular brand of barbecue grill, perhaps one that you own and like. Describe the benefits of that grill and why it is good. Basically, you are writing an ad.
Now here’s the good part. Before writing your article, you have made an agreement with a company that sells the product you are recommending. The agreement states that if your article convinces a reader to buy the product, the company will pay you a commission. It is easy. You advertise, someone buys, they pay you.
You see, at the bottom of your article is a link to the product. When a reader clicks on your link, the company knows it and gives you credit for the sale. And the best part is that you can get paid to write about just about anything you can think of, from aquariums to barbecue grills to nutritional supplements to water purifiers. The list is endless.
So why doesn’t everyone do this? While the concept is simple, there is more to learn than can fit into a single article like this.
