July 27, 2013 - Article marketing is not yet dead, but after running this website for more than a decade, I simply did not want to do it anymore.
Early in 2012, I took down all payment pages on this website, except for a couple of product pages.
If you are still interested in finding someone to ghost write articles for you, I set up a new service in July 2013 to answer that need.
I no longer participate in assigning work, editing the final output, or getting involved in actual communications between you and the writer. Instead, I have set up a Freelance Writers Marketplace, where you can shop and find writers who are ready to serve your needs. My only role in the process is to collect the payment and hold that money until you are satisfied with the work that has been completed on your behalf. At the end of the process, I will send payment to the writer on a job well done. If anything goes wrong, I will process all refunds promptly.
If you are looking for articles that you can reprint on your website or in your newsletter, this website still has more than 7,000 articles available to the public, most of which were submitted by my clients from 2001-2012. For the most part, these are articles that still offer high value to readers. Since I was charging an average rate of $27 per article distributed, people were more inclined to send me their best-quality articles for syndication.
All articles put into the article directory after 2012 are articles that were created to promote my personal websites.
I still use this service to promote my own articles, but I no longer syndicate articles written by third-parties, until further notice.
