    The problem is not doing good keyword research. Bum Marketing is about finding a good niche that wants to buy, and finding good quality keywords with little competition.

    Do 10 minutes worth of research, and you'll be in a lot better shape.

    Let's say for instance I want to promote an firm abs guide.
    http://xxxxx.davidfit.hop.clickbank.net/

    So, I hop over to wordtracker, and look for a good ab keyword that fits that criteria. And I almost instantly find one or actually a bunch.

    For example I have:
    Free ab workout gets 105 searches a day and only has 5,840 competing pages.
    Free Ab workout routine gets 52 searches a day and only has 2,900 competing pages.
    How about exercise ball ab workout 45 searches a day and only 799 pages.

    So, you write your article with that as your keywords in your title, and also mentioned a few times in your article.

    So one article might be Free Ab Workout Routine For Beginners. Then you might have a paragraph heading like Free Ab Workout Routine Options, etc.

    And like someone else mentioned in this thread previously you have to spend as much time in your bio box as you did your article. I might put together a website with an opt-in list that offers a few ab workout videos(hint they don't have to be yours, they can be hosted on Youtube). And you pitch your product to them continually. Make your bio box reference the free ab workout videos you offer, and you'll get a good click through rate.

    The point is, what is your point in your article? Are you just writing it for fun? Or are you writing it for traffic. If you don't know the exact numbers above, number of searches versus competing pages then your article is pointless unless you're just doing it for backlinks. Which is NOT bum marketing.

    Shoot for longtail, high traffic, low competition keywords. I recommend 30-40 searches a day, and less than 5,000 competing pages and ezine articles/squidoo/hubpages should launch you right to the first page.

    That's how you get consistent traffic.

    For the record probably those keywords above aren't great because of the word "free" which precludes many buyers. But you can give an awful lot of free stuff away and then build up to the sale.

    Baumann93 on this phython thread had indicated that pony had poor sale becaus of poor niche. She/he also expressed her/hus doubt that ponynugget may be marketing that free movie downloads. I was astounded by the comment. Reason I have been marketing this for quite sometime since somebody advised me that it converts. and it did covert for me well. One sale for every 2500 hops!!!???.And I the affiliate fool is still carrying that burden.please have mercy on me suggest some niche to convert well . You know i have a regular hop of 350 per day. and no sale for days together. My site is about movie reviews and what the hell on this world can i market ??

    Either he is really busy or the journey wasn't that great... he stopped updating his blog.

    Residual (recurring) affiliate programs are the best! You can actually quit your job with them! :)

    I guess it was a good story and I assume this thread has finished now. But well done to him, he gave it a go.

    I still believe that you should focus only on quality.
