Step Six: Produce and Distribute Content
Now that you have uploaded your viral product to your website for your prospects to download, the question is…
How do people find your website in the first place?
The best way is through article or content marketing strategy.
What is content marketing?
Article marketing consists in submitting articles or content to many article directories.
Now, how can this generate traffic for your website?
- Article directories are well placed in SERPs so your link could potentially be exposed to the millions of visitors of the article directories.
· Article directories have high PR so an inbound link to your website would boost the site’s own PR.
- If your article is of excellent quality, chances are good that it will be picked up by
eZine editors and other webmasters
- There are numerous article directories online so submitting to a hundred of them would mean a hundred inbound links to your website.
- Articles cost zero to little but can go a long way.
How does one go about article writing for inclusion in content directories?
1. Pick a topic relevant to the subject of your website
2. Research on your chosen topic
3. Write the article.
If you can’t write articles yourself, you could hire a freelancer from:

The usual rates are between $5 and $75 per article. Don’t choose price over quality. You get what you pay for.
4. Include a resource box: This box at the end of your article contains an introduction of yourself and your business, and a link.
Cloaking your affiliate link is important because:
- people generally don’t like clicking on affiliate links
- some unscrupulous people can redirect your links elsewhere and steal your affiliate commissions.
5. Submit content to article directories: Now submit your article to the article directories you can find online.
Then watch the traffic flow in.
