Update From Jeff
Greetings everyone, welcome to all of you, it's great to
speak with you again.
How many of you are "occassional" fitness freaks?
I don't mean "real" fitness buffs. I mean those of you,
like me, who decide - after 3-months of abusing our
bodies with too much food, too much caffeine and too little
sleep - this is it! I'm going to go out and run a marathon.
This time, it's my wife's fault!
She had to go and join an organized running group and I
couldn't have her running circles around me could I?
Well - let's just spare you the gory details, suffice it to
say, I have reverted back to the lung capacity of a 90-year
What's great about it though is that, after a few weeks of
excruciating pain, I'm finally realizing the positives of
more adrenaline, more energy and more focus - so watch out
How about you?
Are you going to shake off the winter blues and whip (okay
maybe creep would be a better word) back into shape?
It really can work wonders for your body and mind. At
least if you're with me on this then I won't be alone!
So what do we have for you today?
How about some practical tips on how to get tons of free
publicity by writing your own articles.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I found one of my more
recent articles (you can see them here:
in front of over 1 Million subscribers thanks to many
great ezine publishers who picked it up.
I would have had to pay thousands of dollars for this kind
of publicity - when all it took was 30-minutes to write

One more thing.
Here's an URGENT reminder that the limited time special on
a FANTABULOUS new interview package I've put together for

Imagine holding a copy of your own book, or eBook in

long have you dreamed of completing your own book? If
it's any more than a few weeks, then that's TOO LONG.

This issue I wanted to pull one of the more common questions
that gets asked on discussion forums out and provide a quick
response based on direct experience.
Here's the question...
What are the most effective marketing techniques to get
traffic to my new site?
Well - here's the top 5, taken right from my own weblogs!
1. Joint ventures are the quickest, most effective method
of quick traffic and generating orders from your website
2. Writing articles - as long as they are on hot topics,
based on experience and give people something they want
badly - these can bring you in thousands of highly
targeted visitors and sales.
3. Search engines. This one will take more time. Continue
to develop solid content such as articles, newsletters,
and relevant links and you will rise to the first or second
page of search engines where you will begin to see some
4. PPC - or Pay-Per-Click such as Google Adwords or
Overture.com. Bid on a large number of highly focused
and relevant keywords and you will make money using
this approach. Don't go too broad though - or you will
lose your shirt.
5. Ezine ads. Not as effective as they once were, but
still a good way to bring in allot of targeted traffic
in a short period of time. This can also be a good
way of getting additional newsletter signups and super
affiliates - if you target the right ezines.
That's it for now.
Please - someone submit a profile or question for next
issue - I am getting tired of hearing myself write!!
How You Can Make Writing Free Articles Pay Off!
Copyright 2003 - Jeff Smith
Everywhere you look, you're being told to write articles to
get free publicity for your online business.
Does it really work?
What do you write about?
How do you submit your articles? More important,
how do you get them published?
Using articles as a marketing method does work.
You can convert more sales, generate significant
traffic, increase your search engine ranking and
"brand" yourself an expert just by writing one
or two articles every month.
I recently wrote an article called "
How To Make
Pay Per Click Advertising Payoff"
So far, this article has been included in over 25
publications, exposed to over 1 Million subscribers,
and has been responsible for significant sales - all
for just 30-minutes of work.
I'm not a professional writer, not an "expert" on
search engines, and I did absolutely NO research for
So how did I write it and why was it so successful?
Here are some of the reasons...
1. The article topic is in high-demand. Not only is
internet marketing a hot topic, but Pay-Per-Click
search engines are still a mystery to most people.
More importantly, online marketers stand to lose
significant money if they don't have "insider" tips
on maximizing their return on investment. Try and
write to a) save people money, b) make people money,
c) motivate people, or d) entertain people. These
are all strong motivators and ezine publishers know it.
2. Base your content on personal experience. Here's
a simple, yet highly effective formula for writing
powerful, high-impact articles that publishers are
looking for. Take action, try something and write about
why it worked, or didn't work. There are thousands of
articles submitted everyday, but only a select few
are based on personal experience, and that's what the
major publishers are looking for.
3. Start your article with a strong benefit statement
and then give your readers steps to realize that benefit.
You know what your readers want, tell them what you've
learned, through personal experience, to help them get
4. Give your article a "Hypnotic" title. Using a play on
words, the goal I had in mind writing the title was
to reverse the conception that you can sink allot of
money into PPC into making PPC pay YOU instead.
5. Make sure you get word out about your article.
Generate your own highly targeted ezine publishers list
from a service like this one...
You should also submit to some of the better known
article directories. They do work, my latest article
was picked up by an ezine with over 500,000 subscribers
off of these directories.
Some of the best directories I've found are...
6. Have a signature box that sings! I've seen so many
people spend hours writing an article, and then 2-minutes
writing their signature following the article. It should
be the other way around. Your signature is what will
get people back to your website, the main reason for you
writing the article in the first place.
Finally, make sure you track progress of your articles.
Key your resource box links using your own affiliate
tracking program or ad tracking program to make sure you
know what's working and what's not.
Get ready, Get Set, Now Go! Start making money from
writing articles today.

Joe Vitale - "3 Magical Methods To Finding Hot Infoproducts To Sell"
Special Interview Excerpt
I recently conducted an interview with Joe Vitale and
was SO IMPRESSED by the INCREDIBLE information that came
out of his mouth.
He literally is an unlimited fountain of knowledge when
it comes to how to make money selling infoproducts online.
Joe held nothing back in our discussion - and here he
shares with you 3 incredible techniques he's used to create
at least 1 best-selling product online - helping him
create his own infoproduct EMPIRE.
If you like this few minutes of information - there is
over 60-minutes more of these incredible insights available
This is not the same interview I've done with Joe - but
another, even MORE FASCINATING interview he conducted on
his entire Hypnotic Marketing Method for internet
It's one of the best interviews I've heard him give -
that's why I spent a TRUCKLOAD of money to get the rights
and be able to bring this information to you.
If you missed the last few powerful interview segments
with Yanik Silver, Marc Goldman, and Willie Crawford
then you can find them in our new online newsletter
archive available at:
Now, for this week's interview excerpt!
One of the most asked questions I get from people
looking to get into the infoproduct business in a BIG
way is...how can I find a product to sell. Allot of
people either don't have an idea on products to sell or
have MANY ideas and their not quite sure which one to
go with. It's kind of "the deer in the headlights"
phenomenon - they just don't know where to start out.
Can you perhaps share with us some of the ways you use to
create and evaluate your infoproduct ideas - feel free to
use examples as you do.
Joe Vitale [Answer]
Well, first of all I believe, no I know, there are products
everywhere. If someone wants to find a product to sell they
are all over - but the REAL key is to find a product that
you LOVE to sell.
That goes back to an earlier product I sold called ThoughtLine
- I loved that product, it showed in my sales letters.
Enthusiasm is one of the keys to selling anything.
So you want to find a product that you believe in that will
make it easier to sell.
As for products - they are all over the place. Affiliate
programs are a...I want to say a dime a dozen, that may not
be the case, but several of my ebooks are through Clickbank,
and they have an affiliate program - so if it's one of my
eBooks that you are in love with you can join the affiliate
program and sell it.
Most of my other eBooks are with AESOP marketing, Mark
Joyner's company out of Las Angeles - Hypnotic Writing,
Advanced Hypnotic Writing, Hypnotic Selling tools - all
of those kind of books are through him and he has an
affiliate program. So just within a few seconds, I've
mentioned a few avenues you can use to find products to
Then there is always the Out of Print market. I'm a giant
book collector, I love finding gems from the last century
or even earlier, that are still valid today.
I did, in fact, find an old metaphysical book - I think I
may have the only copy in existence because nobody else
seems to have it. It's called Attaining Your Desires.
I did a copyright search on it by paying the copyright
office in Washington DC to see if anyone owned the copyright
or did it go into the public domain. When I found out
it had gone into the public domain, I arranged to bring
it out as an eBook.
And so - I ended up with a product I didn't have to write,
didn't have to pay anyone for and I believe - because of
the sales letter I wrote, when I sent it to my email
newsletter list I think I made $2,000 overnight from a
book that I didn't write.
So there's all kind of things you can do to - and still
go in the direction of writing your own material - which
I want you to do. And I think EVERYBODY - everybody
listening has some sort of skill, interest, hobby,
experience, education that they can turn into an
It may be so obvious to them that they may not even know
what it is. But usually if I talk to someone for a few
minutes and what they say is their passtime is raising
horses, and if they feed the horse a particular grain it
moves faster, well lights would be going off in my eyes
and above my head and saying there's a money-making
eBook there - or an information product that you can sell
to other people who raise horses.
So that's just a wild example that just came spontaneously,
but everyone listening needs to look in the mirror or talk
to somebody else about what they do, probing for what do
you know, what do you do, what's your education, what's
your experience that you might turn into a How To product
that somebody else could use, because NOT EVERYBODY KNOWS
WHAT YOU KNOW.
