Article Announcer Description

Article Announcer is a software program and training package created by Jason Potash, a well-known Internet marketer. Jason has produced many software programs and tools for Internet marketers over the years. Article Announcer in particular was created to help marketers automate the article submission process and get the most out of their article marketing.

Article Announcer Detailed Overview

The Article Announce package consists of two components. The first is the training program with 5 CDs and two manuals. The second is the actual software itself and the user guide. I’ll go through the training program first before going into the specific details of the software program.

The audio CDs are recordings of Jason Potash and John Reese going over article writing strategies, writing rules to follow, and promotion tactics. I found most of the information basic, but I can see how it can be helpful for beginners. I got a few creative ideas from the audios but nothing too groundbreaking. One thing that really grabbed me was when John said that content is like lottery tickets. The more you have, the better chance you have at winning (in this case ranking in the search engines).

One of the CDs contains video tutorials done in Camtasia. Jason walks you through the whole article writing and promotion process. He teaches you how to conduct research on the best topics to write about, how to write them properly for the best search engine results, protect your articles from ripped off, how to get the most profits from your articles, and the best article resources.

I feel like I’m one of those people who do not need any help when it comes to writing articles. Most of the time, the topic shows itself and the optimization process is simple enough. What helped me the most were the little tweaks Jason shared and the article resources that were previously unknown to me. I could definitely see myself relying on these resources in the future.

The manuals you’ll find is the cheat sheet, swipe file and resource guide. The main manual goes through the article writing process like keyword research, content ideas, creating great titles, bylines and quality content. It also explores the outsourcing process. The swipe file is a small booklet with handy ways to start, end and structure your articles. This can be very helpful when you have a bad case of writer’s block. Finally, the resource guide is a handy list of directories, sites where you can get ideas, additional tools and outsourcing sites.

Now let’s explore the software. The purpose of this software program is to help automate the article submission process. The program was really easy to install and use. It comes preloaded with a list of article directories and you can manually add more to the list. You will have to set up your personal info and register for each directory you want to submit to. The software then remembers this data and automatically fills forms (like the RoboForm software) as you go through each directory.

You have to remember this is not a one-click solution. You’ll have to go through each database one by one. The program just helps to speed up the whole process. I think this is actually a good thing as many directories are aware of the software tools that automate the submission process and ban your IP or find a way to block the program.

So far, Jason has provided multiple updates to the software program since releasing it to the market. I’m glad he is fully backing this program. Many publishers tend to release a program and run away into hiding after a successful launch or very seldom update their program.

What kind of results did I see with the software? Using the software program to submit articles, I was able to build additional backlinks to my website. I build over 20 additional backlinks over the course of 2 weeks and improved my rank for a couple of low competition keywords. One of the benefits of using the software is the ability to get more exposure to your site from article directories and from distribution but sadly I didn’t set up tracking to measure clicks but will do so in the future.

Article Announcer Reputation

Overall, this is a great package for content publishing and promotion. I only have a few complaints about the Article Announcer package. One is that some of the article directories are outdated and do not work. This is limited to only a few articles, so it’s not that big of a deal. Second, the package is incredibly expensive at $379. However, an argument can be made that you make your investment back in terms of the time you save. Jason offers a 3-month money back guarantee if you’re not satisfied, so you’ll get your $379 if you don’t see the value.

I can’t recommend this course for just anyone as most people who plan to use this package will be article marketers or doing a link building campaign for SEO. But because the package includes a full A-Z tutorial about content creation and article promotion, it will get everyone up to speed in no time.

Saved me a lot of time and efforts

I am into the article submission business for quite some time and I decided to buy Article Announcer as it seemed like a good way to save some time. I found the product about two months ago and because it was receiving a lot of positive feedback and considering the price which didn't seem to high for me, I made the purchase. I am writing articles for several different sites and thanks to that tool I was able to shorten the process of submitting them which has made me even more efficient. The product definitely delivers and it does what it is supposed to do very well. In my opinion the price is well worth it and you won't regret paying it if you are a serious writer. The process of setting up the program is straight forward and it took me just around five minutes. You just can't go wrong with it. The software provided me with some great features which were very helpful. The keyword density for example did a very good job for me and it helped me optimize my articles. I also liked a lot the word count tool since I have to write around 400-500 words usually and the tool saved me some time. I would recommend Article Announcer to both newbies and advanced users in the field of article writing since with it you will save yourself a lot of time and efforts. Great buy in my opinion.

Worth the investment

As I'm submitting quite a few articles to AC, ezinearticles and such, I was always looking for a tool that would help me to save time. One day I stumbled across Article Announcer and decided to give it a try, although the price is quite high. But for this price you'll get tons of helpful training materials, step by step videos and lots more. The software for article submitting is really easy to setup and use. You have access to useful features like word count, keyword density, article formatting etc. I have to say that the sales website isn't very inviting to buy the product, so maybe it helps when I tell you that the product itself is way better than the sales website. If you are a writer or if you aim to do this full time you should consider investing the money for this product because it helps a lot.

Great product to promote your site using article writing

This product is made basically to help you submit all of your articles to any article directory you want without the hassle of doing it manually, so you don't have to fill the forms in every site directory site. It will save you hours and hours of your time. It is very expensive, but you will get your investment back in few weeks because of all the traffic you will drive to your website using this product.

The product also covers all you need about writing articles and how to promote them easily, you get several audio cds and 1 user guide when you purchase the product. You can pay for it using PayPal and it will be shipped to your home in a few days. If you are using articles to get traffic to your websites or blogs, I recommend you this product.
