Top Sales Articles

EzineArticles expert author Jonathan Farrington has been building an interesting project over at Essentially he reviews the top sales articles submitted to sites like ours and others, determines which ones are the best as judged by a panel of experts and they announce a winner every Monday.

Initially my gut thought was that he was going to show the top 10 of all time sales articles, but that would be pretty tough as there are tens of thousands of top sales articles by all kinds of experts in different niches. Essentially he had created a human filtered/reviewed portal designed to identify top experts in the sales niche.

I did like how Jonathan created an in-depth article about how he created his Top10SalesArticles site: How We Conceived And Delivered “The Top 10 Sales Articles” (even though this type of article is encouraged only if you can write such a piece that is more about the lessons learned in the process rather than a pure sales pitch).

Wow, what a great website. Just a minute ago, I was closing my eyes and thinking and I bet that Jonathan Farrington’s website would be a great place to put articles for someone who wanted to focus and home in on their IDEAL CUSTOMER. In fact I bet there are 1,000s of sites out there, with specific market niches so you can home in on you EXACT IDEAL CUSTOMER. Right?

And I bet most of us will be able to find these ideal websites to target our ideal customers with our customized articles to target them? Is that your thought too? Should all article authors now migrate to custom sites that fit our ideal customers better? I mean I agree that the idea has merit now that you mention it.

Thank you Lance :-)

It is still very much a work in progress but we are achieving our objectives not least of which, is a “win-win” for everyone concerned:

Authors are gaining greater exposure for their work: The article communities are gaining extra visitors, because we only publish extracts with a link back to the originating site: Advertisers and sponsors have a captive audience of visitors who are nearly all involved in sales and marketing:

The panel of sales experts are enhancing their reputations and gaining additional “followers”

Oh, and we are having a lot of fun……

So, FIP – Fun, Interesting and Profitable!!
