Content is king - Bill Gates said and coined the term back in the 90´s already. In my humble view, this is so true.
The answer to your question Luis is of course what content and how you wanna promote it as their interrelated. For example need an ebook or articles or video content or an autoresponder content? Need content for electrical submarine robots or dog training?
You see, we need a lil bit help on your side to help you.

Good luck though.

what you can do is go a websites like odesk.com or elance.com and hire someone to do it for you.

like inmy case, i needed to rewrite my articles twice for article submission, i hired someone from guru.com (preferred site if you're looking for writers). I paid him (paying) him $2/rewrite.

you can find cheap (but reasonable quality) in such places..

If you're short in cash, you can always do it your self by going to the top articles directories and get some ideas for your content there...

As for marketing and promotion... there's tons more information here at affilorama, just look around and you'll find them.. :) that's what i've been doing.

I agree. Outsourcing is the answer if you don't want to do it yourself. Mark posted a blog post a couple of months ago about Elance Outsourcing. You may want to check it out.

You can also look into odesk. It's an outsourcing network similar to elance.

Hi Louis,

A great way to get free content for your site / eBook / newsletter is to go go google and search for 'your keyword' + plr (public label rights). So for example if you wanted information on asthma, you would doa search for plr asthma.

PLR is free material that you can use as your own, without having to pay for it or get the author's permission.

You can also check for articles on your subject at article sites and use bits and pieces from the various articles you see to make your own. The other articles provide the content, and you just edit them together - just make sure you don't copy and paste everything!

I usually promote products that I have a huge interest in. So my newsletters, blogs and eBooks are easy for me to write because I know a lot about the subject.

If you're willing to invest a little money to get your content, as mentioned above, the best way is to outsource. There are several websites such as odesk.com, elance.com or globolstaff.com which would offer you candidates for as low as a little over $2/ hour.

If you're just starting, you may want to search around websites which have generally the same idea as your own. Check and filter the content, and rewrite it to make it your own.

The easiest way to get a content for your site is to write it yourself. Try to read, research and visit other sites to get ideas, inspiration and to gather information BUT be sure not to plagiarize. You could also try using PLR and outsourcing. If you have a budget you could hire someone to write the content for you

I found a rich source of high quality content, for free - UK government websites. I get data and information that I can use for a whole website on those sites. They give away whole spreadsheets of data - free to use.

They actually license the information under the "Open Government License" which allows you "exploit the Information commercially" http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/ ... t-licence/

Use it as a basis for writing / spinning your own articles.

Thank you for sharing that essexboyracer! :)

You can get content for your website through research. Find blogs, forums and other websites related to your niche and check out the articles on those. Subscribe to blogs and websites related to yours so that you are up to date with what is current in your niche and you can then write about those too.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

thought I would update this thread with another resource, http://data.gov.uk/data, provides loads of data from UK government areas.

I just saw another example of someone using this information to make money today which gives users the ability to buy for £1 detailed report on a specific accident, so long as it occurred between 2005 and 2010.

Yan can try googling for: "your niche" + blog/forum/ezines

Those are some places where you can find someone who updates content of your niche in a blog, a whole platform of people discussing your niche, or a directory of people who writes articles in your niche.


Btw, that's a really great resource you've provided there essexboyracer!

AutoBlogIt.com makes the claim that your blog "could run 100% on auto-pilot, building up unique, niche-relevant, human-reviewed, high quality content automatically, with nothing required from you other than to monitor it from time to time." This is a free program.

Any thoughts?

Hi Linda,

I checked AutoBlogIt.com and what there is some truth in their claim. Basically, what they would do is publish articles on your blog with links back to the author's website. You get content on your site, the writer gets a link back to theirs.

I've yet to find a feedback or review of their service though. I'm interested to see a blog using this service too.

Have a good day!

To get help in adding markup to a file, you can use content assist in a structured text editor. Content assist helps you insert or finish a tag or function or finish a line of code in a structured text editor.
Content assist also enables you to select and insert templates in structured text editors. The placement of the cursor in the source file provides the context for the content assist to offer suggestions for completion.

You could find someone who has used the product or service you are promoting, and ask them for an interview.

The interview could be over the phone or even email.

Thousands of people re-hash content from the web, and even if you do it well, it's not going to result in a "legacy" site that truly offers value to the visitor. By adding interviews, personal accounts, your own photos, and other custom stuff, your'e creating something that people can't get anywhere else.

It doesn't have to be hard- just a couple of questions to an expert- leverage the skill and knowledge of others!, and for free at that.

Yes, I agree that promoting is quite tough especially if you only have a little idea on how to do it. So as what the others said, those methods could be the way which may help you get what you want. Though it seems to be so easy and hassle-free, you may also have the right strategies in order to know which path you should take.

Don't use PLR on your website... you will kill your rankings because a lot of other people will use the same articles too.

The reason why google is rolling out google authorship and it will be big in 2013 is google hates PLR so if you want to be on page 100(if you are lucky) keep using PLR

PLRs aren't all that bad. For one thing, you can get info from them and add that to an article you're writing. You can also re-write them and make them part of your newsletter series.

Still, between PLRs and having someone write original articles for me, I'd go for the latter of course.

My two cents. Have a good day!
