Bum Marketing Pays Off!

Postby tess47 » Fri Aug 08, 2008 12:45 pm

Here is my own success story:

I had been marketing online for a little over one year WITHOUT ONE SALE. Am I hardheaded? Yes. Did I know you can make money on the internet? Yes. That's why I never gave up.

One day, I accidentally came across the bum marketing method. I read through it, and thought to myself "sounds pretty easy". Well, within one week of beginning that method I made my first money online. Within 2 months, I had made $1,000.00! I was ecstatic, to say the least.

I don't do as much of it now as I did then. But along the way, I learned more about marketing simply for DOING bum marketing that I can now say I make good money on a regular basis - all thanks to bum marketing!

I suggest to any of you who haven't had any luck yet - try the bum marketing method. IT WORKS

Bum marketing? Is that where you give homeless people a sandwich if they wear a sandwich board advertising your website? :)

I'm kidding!

In all seriousness, congratulations on your success with this strategy. I hope you'll share more of the secrets of your success.

Here is a little information on how I started. I decided what niche I wanted to use (weight loss, HIGHLY competitive), then went looking for some long tail keywords with relatively low competition (10,000 or under when searched for on Google in "quotes").

I set up a free blog with Blogger, started posting short posts about weight loss, put a couple of products on and started writing 4 to 5 articles per day using my long tail keywords. That's basically it! Make sure your article is compelling and make your readers want to click on your link.

Good luck!

Hey congratulations!

I'm also a believer in bum marketing though I haven't had as much success as you have. I do have a dozen or so articles in ezinearticles at number one position, but I think I have to work on my landing page a bit, maybe making it sound more real. Well congratz again! all you have to do know is keep scaling it for bigger profit!

The Bum Marketing method is one of the options I am looking at to expand my business. It is great to hear that it works for someone other than the (Gurus :evil: ) that promote it.
