7 Ways to Create More Traffic & Profits with Your Article Resource Box

Article Marketing is a great way to pull in the traffic and profits, when you have a strategically crafted Resource Box. Most people mess this up, and that is why I am offering 7 tips in this article on how to get more traffic and profit from your Article Resource Box.

Before I get started, for the beginners out there, the Resource Box is the section at the end of every article where you are encouraged to invite your reader to learn more from you by clicking on links back to your websites and blogs.

Just to make sure you understand the power of this, just one of these carefully crafted is responsible for almost half of the members in my list community.

7 Tips for a More Powerful Resource Box

1) It’s not about you – The biggest mistake I see people make is believing the Resource Box is all about them.


It’s all about your reader and prospect, and what is in it for them. This is the mindset that you must adopt and keep when you craft this part of your article.

2) Anti-hype – Avoid any hype. This is the quickest way to turn away high quality prospects. Giving the impression that you think they have to get this now or they will never be successful is a great way to get rejected.

3) Invitational language – While this is a call to action, you want to use “invitational language” For example, “And now I’d like to invite you to claim your Free Instant Access to…” beats the heck out of “watch this video before we decide to take it down.” Yeah, right.

4) The trade – Click here to learn about “the trade” and the other 3 tips.

  • Hi Jeff,

    A great reminder that the resource box is about the Reader (not the writer). It’s easy to forget this. I’m working on an article now and will be sure that my resource box provides value to the Reader.
