How to Become A Bum Marketing Genius

If you don’t know what Bum Marketing is, you must have been hiding under a rock. It’s basically a new name for article marketing, except that instead of including a link back to your own website, bum marketers put in a link to an affiliate sales page.

There are some skills involved – the main one is finding a product that you can write a good ‘pre-sell’ article about. I’m giving away a great report about Bum Marketing which explains how to find the right product, how to research the best keywords to use and how to quickly write articles and submit them to article directories.

You don’t have to be a great writer, the skills are useful for marketing any kind of site, and the technique is completely free. What are you waiting for?

  1. I guess I was living under a rock. Sounds like a great way to market when your a bum.

  2. Derrick says:

    Well, it does work for those of us who aren’t bums – the name came from the fact that it’s free (you don’t even need a website), and even a bum could do it.

  3. Shaun says:

    Whats the main difference between this and normal marketing? I mean, to make a website successful, you need fresh, good well written content, and then you market it that content? How is this different?

  4. Derrick says:

    Shaun,
    There’s no real difference, except that you can start without a website, and at zero cost. You submit articles for free to the most popular article directories, with resource boxes which point to affiliate offers.

    Having your own website lets you send visitors to a landing page instead of directly to the affiliate page, so you can collect email addresses.

    The principles involved in writing articles for Bum Marketing and for promoting your own website are identical.

    Now I’m starting to wonder if the article link to the website sales push page is just an extra unnecessary step! I’m definitely going to have to give this a shot on my next round of article submissions…

  6. Hi derrick, thanks for your intro to the bum marketing. I have try to promote my product, it’s about iphone through article directories but I never get approval from the owner. But I don’t know what I’m doing wrong? Can you show some approval tips to consider before I submit my article? Please help…

  7. I haven’t done bum marketing for a long time but in my short stint with it, I’ve had great results. Like anything else, i believe you need to keep at it for long lasting results.

    P.S Ezinearticles is the best directory to submit to.

  8. Agree that ezinearticles is the best. I haven’t downloaded your free report yet but looking forward to checking it out.

    Hey Derrick,

    After reading your post, I am thinking that I’ve been living under the rock. I do write on the topic “Live Customer Support and sales support” to marketing our services and products, I guess your idea about bum marketing will be much useful for my company as well.

    Thank you for educating us.

  10. Fred says:

    I always wondered about this, I just feared sites would axe the article if they didn’t see a plain link in your credentials box.

  11. Tender says:

    I’ve just read report about Bum marketing. It’s really useful information. Thanks for your blog, Derrick

  12. Johnnie from Free Auto Insurance Quotes says:

    Even though i didn’t know exactly what bum marketing was, i kinda figured it would be some type of free marketing technique. Bum marketing (to me atleast) is very time consuming. But i guess depending on what directories you submit your article to, it can be worth it.

  13. Jones says:

    well if the marketing is so good how do you stay a bum? lol

  14. Dave from Moving Guide says:

    Well, it is a nice approach, as it takes much less work. but then you lose some of the potential the readers traffic has.

    I will try both I guess as it’s hard to say if it’s a good thing that the traffic doesn’t have to go through another website or do the traffic really convert better on my own site.

  15. James from women fashion dresses says:

    One of the things is to find a product to market.
    writing good ‘pre-sell’ is a skill, and not always easy. I like the fact that I can market other people products.

  16. EzineArticles is the best!

  17. Actually, writing a article to make money from just one product with an affilate link in direct to the merchant beats setting up a website. If you can establish a network of good places to submit articles to and even indexed by search engine quickly, could be a very easy and lucrative way to make money. Ummmm

  18. ken from cheap website hosting says:

    People do make money with bum marketing. I would make own website for it and then use the links to that in articles. Now your bum marketing and getting links to your website not some page someone else owns. I see some people just use link to affiliate site and they could do better with own websites.

  19. Andy from Resveratrol says:

    Great idea. I’ve always known about using articles for affiliate sales but just never had the discipline to crank them out like I should and having the direct link in them is a great idea I’ve never thought of. I guess if you do enough of them and use the right keywords this can be viable!

  20. Aaron from homecoming dress says:

    I think that bum marketing is an excellent solution for those who do not really want to create your site ad there is a lot of methods of promoting products through shareware and download sites. Am I right?

  21. I guess I was living under a rock. I mean I heard about Bum Marketing but never questioned myself what exactly is. :)
