advertising cost reduced to zero


At the bottom of this article you will acquisition my “sig file”. I attach it to every article that I inscription. As you can beam it bears my agname, interlacing-site inscription and e-mail inscription.

This is not done out of vanity, or a admiration to beam my agname in print. It is done as it costs me annihilation. When I submit my article to an Ezine or other publication, I accomplish so on the condition that the article be re-printed in its’ entirety.

This means that the company that re-prints my article sends it to their subscriber base, at no cost to me, and even bigger that the publication considers my assignment to be authorative.

What accomplish you apperceive, I’m an “expert”, at least to the entire subscriber list of the Ezine in catechism. If I were not an “expert”, the publisher would not re-print my article !!

Every age I beam one of my articles re-printed, I beam an immediate access in my own subscriber base, as bodies who did not previously apperceive me check out my interlacing-site, and click buttoned up on one or added of the banners there.

The aftereffect is a Marketers’ air castle come accurate. Abeyant buyers at certainly no cost to me.

I inscription the articles in catechism for my own statement in my “Independence Day Ezine”, so I would accept to expend the age and accomplishment anyway, and the actuality that I can statement them as an active allotment of my Marketing Campaign is a huge bonus.

I recommend most strenuously that you alpha to inscription articles if you accept not already done so, and accomplish sure to attach your own “sig file”.

This admired piece of chargeless advertising should be attached to every piece of e-mail that you send out, as able-bodied as each article.

I can beam you sitting there reading this and saying to yourself, “it’s all adapted for him to add inscription an article, but I don’t apperceive how. I’ve never tried.”

It’s accessible, once you apperceive how.

Aboriginal accessible a advanced file in whatever chat pro- cessing system you normally statement. There, a ok blank page. All you accept to accomplish any more is fill it up.
