Also, when you publish your articles to article directories, you agree to allow others to publish that article to their Website, Blog or Ezine. Ezines provide the opportunity to get your article seen by thousands of people in literally seconds. If a big Ezine owner is interested enough in your article to publish it to his or her Ezine, that could result in thousands of site views, which means a bunch of money for you.
The problem with the ‘Bum Marketing Method’ is that although it is a great guide on an effective technique, it does not go into detail how to effectively run an article marketing campaign.
