Are you writing articles and blog posts to help drive your business,  get backlinks, and get on the front page of google?

Have you been frustrated with your results?

Would you like to change those results and start actually recruiting some folks from your traffic?

Many people today in network marketing are writing articles and posting blogs posts. They are adding content to their blog daily and are focused on getting traffic to their blog or from article directories. With the recent panda changes in google, article directories do not carry the clout they once did, but they are still important to the end results of recruiting. So are blog directories as well as blogging itself.

There are many mlm recruiting tips that we can teach on Article marketing, but I call it something different and have for years.

I have written over 1,200 articles online. I know a little but about this. Because of what I have seen and experienced, I call it “Article Recruiting.” Article Recruiting is much more powerful and focused on the end results- sponsoring someone.

There are many different elements of Article Recruiting, but there are 3 tips that I believe will help you enlarge and enhance you home business recruiting results in writing articles and posts. I believe that article marketing is important, but Article Recruiting is even more so if you are going to be writing articles.

Here are 3 powerful Article Recruiting Tips that will help your recruiting through marketing your articles.

1. Don’t just Keyword your article- KEY QUESTION your article.

The most searched terms on google, bing, and yahoo, are QUESTIONS. They are searched 4 to 5 times more often then any other type of search term. And most people so not use this simple tactic in their articles. I have used it for years and have stayed on the front page of google for years with articles.

Start your article off with 2 questions and even ask a question in the title. This will go far in helping you to get a better ranking on the search engines and other search directories. Notice I did it on this article. hello.

I took some time off for the last 2 years, but 6 month ago started writing again, and we get on the front page of google within 24 hours of writing an article. Yes, we are blessed to have an authority website, but it is the ARO that I am constantly focused on.


This is something that we came up with in 2006 and have been teaching our Private Clients this little mlm recruiting tip. We want you to optimize your articles for SEO but also ARO. And if you do both, you will CRUSH IT out of the park.

2. At the end of your article or post- give something away free- TWICE in a ROW.

If you are going to give something away that is free, then add another ebook or another video. Why?

You will get a much better click through and download ratio. We have tested it and have found that when we did that, we get almost 300% more click throughs then if we just offer one. And you just upped your potential of recruiting someone by 300%.

Give away TWO gifts- not one.

Set yourself apart. Don’t ne like everyone else. Brand yourself as a more giving brand and more caring brand. Give twice- IN A ROW. That part is important. They MUST be in a row. Then you will see a better CTR on your article.

3. Include a video (link or embedded)  at the end of your article or post asking the reader for help.

This one Article Recruiting tactic has proven to be amazing. The Private Clients we coach put a 30 second video at the end of some of their posts, and all they are saying, “Could you help me? I am looking for someone in your city…”

This has proven to be amazing in results. There has been a recruiting explosion in many instances, as a video at the end asking for help is not part of the norm in Article Marketing. But it is in Article Recruiting. Try it. You will find that it will increase your recruiting dramatically over time and even help the links and reads on your articles.

Article Recruiting is something that I believe will help a lot of people, and these tips will as well. Practice some Article Recruiting and see if your mlm recruiting does  not explode in your mlm home business recruiting.

Home business and

Article Marketing go hand in hand. The two are made for each other. One is a vehicle and the other helps drive the engine.

Article marketing I have been doing for nearly 10 years. It has been an amazing way to meet people as well as get a message out.

And of course, to train as well as educate the folks on some pretty cool things. Ahem.

Now I am going to get up on my soap box.

Recently I have been observing some articles that are…well…let’s just say are less than quality content. Ezine articles got smart. Chris Knight over at decided to go to 500 words per articles because a lot of articles were disguised advertisements for a lot of affiliate marketing, MLM, as well as internet marketing scams.

It is all over the place. Low quality articles that are deceptive at best.

I just shake my head when it comes to social media articles and what I call  the teaching and practice of “Deception Marketing.”

It is a total lack of ethics and integrity.

I am amazed by a lot of the social networking articles on the article marketing resources. Many neophytes in network marketing and social media try to come across as network marketing “experts” and social media “experts.” And when a little research is done-you find that many of the authors have not even been in the business 5 years- or even 3. They simply are doing what they have been taught to do and doing it over and over.

And they pitch and sell-pitch and sell- and pitch and sell.

Nothing wrong with that I guess.

Or is that really what articles are supposed to do?

And another thing I have found is that many of their articles contain little or no training or any useful  information that will help people in their issues with life.

Now I have a REAL issue with that.

If you are honestly going to write an article as an “expert” – then give them expert advice, training, or something of VALUE.

COME ON folks!

Tough to do-if you have not done it. I have done it a lot-and done it in a big way. The training articles of Deception Marketing also contain mostly the same old warmed over stuff- the same ideas, tactics, and the same verbiage that has been out in the article directories for years. I call it “Recycled Mold.”  The info is so old, it contains marketing mold.

What happened to the USP? Or even being unique and SETTING YOURSELF APART?

Or even branding yourself as something different?

Well, maybe I am wrong- but I believe there are 5 Elements that a Network Marketing Social Media article should contain on any article resource directory in Article Marketing:

1) Unique training and information-NOT just useless selling.

Many people are looking for SOLUTIONS-not to be sold something. I have a lot of emails that people are asking why that all the trainings in these directories are a bait ands switch? They promise training but end up getting pitched on the newest deal or “opportunity.”

Been there as well as I have taken the time to look up other topics in article directories and found that good old Deception Marketing. And again- having a resource box with an offer is GREAT and that is how you do it. But let’s just not pitch in the article itself. It gives all of the authors in MLM /Social Media a black eye and bad rap.

GIVE some training / information as that is expected in an article is it not? That is what “experts” do- if there is really such a thing. GIVE something UNIQUE that will HELP people- and solve a problem for them. You will be taking your articles up to a whole new level. Get rid of the same ol same ol and THINK like an expert- write like an expert- and get creative like an expert would. That is the minimum we all should do.

2) A SOLUTION that has PROVEN to WORK.

THAT is imperative. If you are going to get in the article network marketing and social media marketing zone- make your article SOLUTION focused– not selling focused. That is what a Social Media and MLM “expert” does.

People are seeking answers to problems. They are looking for how to’s-not “here -buy this.” Create a solution for people- a REAL solution-not something that is disguised as one to sell something. Build your credibility, not your gullibility.

3) A Presentation- not a Pitch.

Articles are an information source- and a training haven. Professional authors understand that you want to create a BOND and RELATIONSHIP with the person reading your article. They will stay with you and read your blog and other articles. THAT is money in the bank. They will become raving fans of yours- instead of resentful foes that feel cheated by your article.

If you PITCH someone in your article- you have developed a short term relationship. If you PRESENT a solution or an answer- you are well on your way to developing a long term relationship-the secret to successful article marketing.

4) Your Article must contain IMPACT.

Impact is the key to a great article. Your article must create a “Wow” impact- and show them you are a TRUE expert-not someone pretending to be. The social media “gurus” teach personal branding. We have for years as well. But it takes 3 things to be branded as an Expert:




Impact is a fruit of “been there-done that” and the social proof that you are truly an expert. Impact is a fruit of having the KNOWLEDGE that experts that can Impact people in a powerful way. And Impact is taking a “TINY” focus- “Their Interests Not Yours.” Their interest in your article for the most part, is learning and solving. Make sure that your article has that within it- and you will have the impact to move people to want to know more about you.

5) Your Article MUST Contain ENOUGH Content AND – Content that is Valuable and Worth Reading.

I see a lot of “articles” of 75-100-words that only there for one reason it seems–to point to the resource box. THAT is what I call an “Article Pitch” or “Pretend Article.” It is PURE Deception Marketing. They use an article to “pitch” their offer and dilute all of the other articles in the directory.

There used to be a commercial asking “Where’s the BEEF?” Well- Where’s the Content? And many of the article directories today have gone to a minimum of 600 words to insure there IS content that is worth reading.

Now yes, there are really good articles in these directories from some really great writers. It is not all “fake it and write it.” There are great newer authors as well as older ones–that are VALUE focused– not Volume focused.

One is focused on giving Value to the reader- and the other to sell Volume for themselves. One is short term and the other is long term.

Guess which one is the most successful at building business? Yep- the Value focused article that delivers.

I have been blessed to write the last 8 years over 1000 on line published articles on over 300 directories-so I know a little bit about this. Let’s quit pretending to be authors and start giving TRUE Value first- THEN build a connection with the reader about what you have to offer.


Connect with the reader with TRUE Solution Based Value. Direct them to your offer through your resource box. Build a relationship with them then, through a blog,conference calls, or newsletter.

Folks, as we say from my home state of Texas: This ain’t rocket science. It is simply understanding the process.

You will have so much more success in your Social Network Marketing efforts if you are HONEST and INTEGRITABLE about your writing and delivering content via article marketing. If you oppose Deception Marketing like I do, great. if you practice it then do not be surprised if you stay frustrated with your MLM Network Marketing Home Business.
