In this edition of the Affiliate Buzz, hosts James and Arlene Martell discuss what to do when you have leftover PAD articles sitting on your hard drive. PAD stands for Professional Article Distribution, and it’s a strategy that strategy that James and Arlene use to create quality backlinks for both themselves and their clients.

But before James and Arlene reveal the solution for those leftover PAD articles, they announce the recent launch of The School of Internet Marketing’s affiliate program. The program is headed by affiliate channel management company SmarterChaos, and offers recurring monthly commission for every sign up.

The Effect a Podcast Can Have On Your Business
Although things like anchor-text rules change over time, backlinks are still important for getting search rankings. PAD articles offer the best opportunity for backlinks. James explains that when getting started, some take to internet marketing like ducks to water while others struggle to keep afloat.
Even established professionals with high-quality articles sometimes have trouble getting them distributed throughout the internet. One recent example happened on the morning of the podcast when a panicked client called Arlene. He needed some holiday-themed articles distributed before the holiday lest they become stale and irrelevant.
Despite much hard work, he still had nearly a dozen to distribute. Arlene pitched in and got the job done. If you find yourself in need of her expertise, here are the steps to take:
- First contact Arlene by phone or email (found on the Help Desk at The School of Internet Marketing website)
- Be prepared to show high-quality articles that are 600 – 700 words each
- Arlene then gives you an estimate of how long it will take to distribute these articles
As James says, it is a real shame when there are a bunch of beautifully written PAD articles that go undistributed. Tune in to this episode of Affiliate Buzz now to hear more information about the different ways that James and Arlene can help your affiliate marketing program today!
