I had the pleasure to talk with James about article marketing in one of our conversations and his take on it. He taught me that 99% approach article marketing the wrong way. He said “they follow what all the forum junkies talk about.”
James went a big step ahead of that crowd and created his own product called Artemis Pro. It is an article submission software which gives an instant 1,875% boost to your article marketing efforts. The interesting part of that is it does not work with the popular e-zine article sites or the like. It works with real unique publishers that are highly interested in your articles. And this software works with a so called internal and an external publisher list.
Artemis Pro comes with a built-in list of legitimate publishers. The goal, however, is to build your own huge external list of tens of thousands of publishers. We can do that on our own by going to Google and searching for publishers and compiling them to a list, we can outsource that task (certainly the smarter way), or we can purchase an external list of someone who performed that task already.
James recommends a CD with a unique external list of 1,000 publishers from one of his companions right now on his blog in an 24 hour special; it cost a mere $30 instead of $100! I highly recommend you get that CD too as it will save you a bunch of time and money, and boost your article marketing efforts even more.
