When you read the article titled “Budget Marketing For Start-Ups for Brands Journal,” by Greg W. Smith, you get the impression that it’s all about the tips and tricks of a consultant who is now an active member of the company he used to work for. In fact, it sounds as if he was hired specifically because he had that knowledge. He tells you what to say and how to write your budget proposal in an easy-going way that will appeal to just about anyone. I won’t waste my time with his “how to write a budget proposal” information, but I will tell you how I learned some of the tricks that he mentions.
The Sponsored Post is one of the three things that you must have to become a member of Brands Journal. It’s like a triathlon. First, you must finish the triathlon in the swimming pool; second, you must do enough swimming to get back to the starting line; third, you must complete all of the courses in the order given. There is no skipping between events.
This is where the magic happens, and Greg Smith delivers on his promise. There is no limit to the number of articles you can submit to the sponsored post area. You can submit three or four articles within one month. If you have more than a few articles already to get ready, you can divide up the workload between those. The key is that you submit at least one new sponsored post each day.
The Sponsored Post will not directly contain all of your articles. Some will be helpful to your readers, and others will be informative. There is no editorial interference. Your sponsors are clearly defined within the rules, and the Brands journal will approve or disapprove of your sponsored posts.
Smith makes a good point about this. When you are doing a project as important as this one, you need to be very careful how you use your time and resources. He quotes an old adage: “I do things only once. So start today.” I completely agree with him on this one. The sooner you start, the sooner you will finish.
Smith does say that he cannot promise you results overnight. He acknowledges that it takes time and dedication, but he says that with the help of Brandsjournal you can achieve your goal much faster. It is definitely true. When I started marketing in 2020, I was bombarded with information, coaching and resources.
The only downside was that there was so much to sort through. I would write one article, find the right Web site for it, write another, then think about uploading it and placing it in the right category. Then I would have to go back and add links. I had to organize my information so that I could find what I needed quickly. It took several months before everything lined up properly.
Now, I am able to go to the sponsored post area and click on links whenever I need to. I am able to track each and every click. I am able to know which articles are performing the best and which ones aren’t performing as well. All this has made me a lot more efficient and, in turn, has increased my sales and profit. It has also increased my client base. Brandsjournal really works!
The next thing I changed was the way I structure my articles. Before, I wrote an article, went to Google’s AdWords section, selected keywords that were related to my product and posted my article there. For whatever reason, people didn’t click on the links and that meant that I wasn’t making any money. It was just costing me money.
So what I did? Instead of writing an article and posting it to AdWords I created a sponsored post. This is a sponsored link in the body of the article that has a Google adsense box at the bottom of it. If anyone clicks on it, I get paid by Google.
It is very easy and it works. You will be amazed at how well it works and you will wonder why you never tried it before. Brandsjournal changed my life and the lives of hundreds of other people. I sincerely hope that you will use it to work wonders in your business life.
