What is the Best Marketing Method?
After four years on the Internet, I read constantly where "search engine placement"
is the key to success and I am here to tell you this is baloney. Yes, it is a
necessary ingredient but not something you should hyper-ventilate over.
To be an effective marketing person on this Information Highway, you must put up road
signs all over it. Search Engines are just a small part of what you should be doing.
My site is 103,692 out of the top 300,000 websites according to this site:
This service is provided by 7Search and I want to add, I have never paid them or
anybody else for any type of advertising or submission services ever in my
four years. So why my site would be listed with them who knows. But it does show me

1. Publishing Permission Statement
This is usually at the top of your article and is similar in wording to:
This article may be freely published in your newsletter, on your website,
or in your free eBook, so long as you keep my byline and resource box intact with a
clickable link back to my site.
By putting this statement in, you will not have to play email tag with all the
different ezine editors. It saves you both time if this simple statement is included.
2. Article Title with your name as Author
Make it attention grabbing and short if you can. Not only because you want ezine
owners to read it when you email your article to lists on Yahoogroups or Topica but
a great title helps when you add your article to portal sites like:
