An Internet Network Marketing Coach Altered My E-zine Article And I'm Not Happy About That

 

Bookmark and Share

This article is about an internet network marketing coach who altered an ezine article in an attempt to improve his blogs rankings with the search engines. You will learn what the ramifications are when you break the copyright laws and why writing your own content is always a safe bet. There is one internet network marketing coach who could be very close to having his business tarnished.

What you are about to read happened to me. Learn how to protect your copyright rights and take action when they have been compromised. Today you have an opportunity to be heard and share your opinions.

Yesterday afternoon, as I was doing my own network marketing, I decided to check my traffic stats coming into my blog. You see, I love stats and I love tracking. These are two key puzzle pieces that I always use in all of my marketing.

 

Well there it was, my article, “Is Your MLM Upline Causing You More Harm Than Good”. Article writing for www.ezinearticles.com is one of my favorite marketing strategies and generally my articles are listed highly in the search results for its specific keyword. I happen to be pretty good with keywords and have a trick to getting high rankings. You can too but it'll cost you $299.00/year.

 

Anyway my article was listed 3 times on page 1. That's correct, this internet network marketing coach had his article listed 3 times. #1, #3, and #6. How could that be? Well you probably know that other webmasters can copy ( I hate using that word) your code from article directories and post the articles on your site or blog. However, you are not permitted to alter the article, you must include the entire article, and you can not change the resource box information.

 

The first listing was my article 'as is' direct from ezinearticles. The 2nd listing was from another internet network marketing coach done right all intact. The third listing was the culprit. This guy took the first paragraph of the article and posted it. That's all just the first paragraph which, as you know, is the tease. Address a pain or a concern and draw the reader into wanting to read more. Well I clicked on that link, paragraph, anyplace that I could to find in the entire article. No way Jose'.

 

As a matter of fact, I checked out other articles and they were all the same. Just 1 paragraph. If I had been surfing looking at blogs and came across this one I wouldn't be hanging around long. It was that bad. But I was there because this internet network marketing coach hijacked my hard work and I was not happy about it.

 

So I copied ( oops that word again) this guys web address and went to whois.domaintools.com and pasted it in the search box. Bingo! Name, address, phone number, IP address, host name, you get the picture.

 

Now I have a decision to make. Do I write an e-mail to this internet network marketing coach and ask him to remove the article, you see I believe the whole article was there it was just hidden. This way the search engine spiders would still pick up on the keywords and pass on a high ranking. Or do I leave it alone and let him continue to be a dishonest internet network marketing coach.

 

I am asking for your opinion. Below is an e-mail that I have composed. My plan was to send him an attachment of the whois.domaintools results page and then have him read the article. After reading this add a comment to this page.

 


 

Dear Internet Network Marketing Coach,

 

 

I suppose you are wondering why I am sending you this e-mail and the enclosed attachment. Well it goes like this and I am calmed down a bit at the moment. Internet marketers work hard to make a living. Don't you agree?

 

Some of us more than others, right? Those of us who know how to write keyword focused articles, address a pain, a need, a want, a concern, and a solution generally find their material ranked highly in the search engines. Its a shame when another internet network marketing coach feels compelled to not give credit where credit is due.

 

You see article directories allow for webmasters to use articles for their websites or blogs as long as they don't alter the material including the all important resource box. Articles are the give. Give away free information that is of value to a target audience. The take is the resource box.

 

Shall I get to the point? “Is Your MLM Upline Causing You More Harm Than Good”. Yes that is my material and I am pleased to know that you found my article to be of such value as to post it on your blog. You know; I have to laugh because (company name withheld) is a training program for internet marketers. A good internet network marketing coach is a minority these days and they are being seeked out more today than ever before. I should know because I am a trainer and coach myself. The humor, of course, is for someone who promotes network marketing training and coaching you don't practice what you preach.

 

How can you coach a client on article marketing and keyword usage when you don't practice it yourself? I can see from your blog that this is a regular pattern. Think about this for a minute. Your target market is network marketers who are struggling with lead generation and are in need of a solution. Do you believe that your blog presells your training opportunity and has your visitors in a ready to join mindset?

 

The front page of your blog has no white space to speak of making it difficult to read. The text is simply the first line of the first and only paragraph of articles that you have posted. Each line being a text link that you have altered the link color to make it appear as not being a link. Your blog lacks value, information, and doesn't address the pain, concern, want, need, and solution mentioned earlier.

 

Your Alexa ranking though is quite good for a blog that lacks all of the above which got me to do a little more research. In order for a blog to be found the natural way meaning good content, keywords, etc. it helps to have in coming links. You have 2 inbound links both from www.backpage.com, which I now know is a classified site similar to craigslist.org.

 

What this tells me is just what I suspected. You are searching Google and Yahoo using a search term related to your business and finding articles from the directories that are ranked highly. Then, you are taking that article and posting it on your blog but you are hiding the content and resource box from your readers. Why would an internet network marketing coach do such a thing? Have you ever heard the term “content is king”? Sure the search engine spiders will see the article content and your blog will rank well, but what about your visitors?

 

What you are doing is an interesting marketing technique if you don't want to produce your own original content but you are going about it all wrong. Take a look at the search term that you used to find “Is Your MLM Upline Causing You More Harm Than Good”. Remember that is my material. Page 1 on Google first listing: my original article from www.ezinearticles.com, third listing: my complete article on another webmasters blog also a training opportunity blog. The difference being the article is complete resource box and all, sixth listing: your blog with my partial article and resource box hidden.

 

What are your fears? Afraid of losing a prospect? In actuality by leaving the article intact you are letting your visitors know that they have options and it isn't all about you. There is no guarantee they will read the entire article; although I hope the article captured their attention. You are providing value which in many cases will keep your visitors around longer. So; what if they look at a different opportunity? Remember they are searching for a solution and if you don't provide value they probably won't do business with you.

 

I've been asking myself why am I helping you. After all you are a professional internet network marketing coach and trainer. The only answer I have is because this is what I do. I find solutions for network marketers. Its second nature. Look at the bright side; you just receive free expert advice.

 

Now back to your problem. You hijacked my hard work for your own benefit and I'm still ticked off about that. Read the terms of service. Pay special attention to section 1 a-e, section 7, and don't miss section 8.

 

So here is the solution:

 

Remove my partial article from your blog immediately or post the entire article resource box and all for all to see.

 

If you refuse I will be forced to contact ezinearticles.com. You see they will give you a 48 hour notice of your privilege to reprint rights being revoked. You'll then have 24 hours to remove ( are you ready for this) all articles received from www.ezinearticles.com. If you can't be found your web hosting company will be contacting you to service notice.

 

I see from whois.domaintools.com/ that your web hosting company is GoDaddy.com. Good choice; I use them myself and am quite satisfied with their service.

 

Finally, if you still refuse to cooperate legal action is an option. Read Copyright Law of the United States of America and Related Laws Contained in Title 17 of the United States Code.

 

It seems to me that the first solution is the best. Oh yea, an apology and promise never to do this again would be nice but not expected. If I were you I'd hope and pray that I'm not friends with the other hard working authors whose articles you have hijacked.

 

Yours Truly,

 

p.s. You know the old school methods of prospecting i.e. cold calling, circle of influence. 3 foot rule, pull tabs, and fliers is less effective than it once was. It's no wonder so many people perceive network marketing in a negative way. The need for an internet network marketing coach is at an all time high. Perhaps you need to go back to school. I don't hate you; I'm disappointed in you, but I don't hate you. I'm here to help you solve a problem and you've got a BIG problem. Here's another freebie for you go back to school today right now your network marketing business will change forever.

 


 

 

There it is. What would you do? Do I send the letter and rock his world? My personal feeling is yes. Why? Because he needs to be responsible for his actions and he needs to learn how to be an internet network marketing coach. This new model of network marketing is really still in its infancy stage. We need to build a solid foundation by being honest and trustworthy for the future of this industry. We need to be learning good habits right now for the benefit of all trainers and coaches today and for tomorrow.

 

Or do I just forget it and let him continue to hijack other hard working authors work. I have intentionally not mentioned his coaching opportunity out of respect for the good coaches who are involved with this opportunity. Some of whom I have become friends with through the social networks. What I will tell you is that its one of the more popular coaching and training sites.

 

Your comments are welcome. What are we going to do with this internet network marketing coach?

Hey James,

I'm right there with you. (trying to do the same things you are to help others learn attraction marketing)...

I say send it to him.

Just knowing that he has been snagged may stop his abuse of other people's work.
Then again, he may feel that what he is doing is ok, which is totally not ok.
What you are doing is RIGHT. Protecting your content. Throw the book at him. What you are asking by having him display the entire article is very fair and gives him a chance to redeem himself.
Hope it all works out for you...this could happen to any of us!

Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

Keep attracting!

Hey James,
My initial reaction to this would be to blast this guys name out on every social media outlet to expose him for the fraud that he is. In our profession we have to rely in large part on self policing in order to keep unsavory practices in check. Exposing this guy will not only protect your work but it will also serve as an example for future would-be forgers to think twice before they go knocking off someone's material.
But that's reactionary and should probably be saved as a final option if the gentleman doesn't comply with your requests.
I think your letter is fair and level headed and is a good first step into finding a resolution to this problem. If the offender doesn't comply with your wishes then further more sever measures can be taken.
It's an unfortunate problem because the few bad apples really can ruin the whole barrel. I think it's incumbent upon us to educate ourselves and each other on these types of situations so that we can better avoid them. You've done so here with your post and I thank you for it.

Cheers!

I think you've handled it extremely well. You're using the power of social media to turn a negative into a positive by educating others about the incident and sharing how you've managed to start dealing with it.

I Digg it! Great article here!

Mike Klingler

May 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMike Klingler

Several Points:
1) Unless you make your entire living online, why bother to put all this effort into a small "crime" that will eventually disappear...
2) If dishonest practices are what people use to promote themselves online - won't they eventually be "caught" by their clients, or won't their "lack of expertise" show through...
3) Online Articles are great, but I think most people turn to video these days, as video is much easier to comprehend, faster to absorb, and more entertaining - people tend to see a movie rather than read a book / but perhaps I am wrong - some "experts" I delve into their works too; still I think articles & written blogs will pale in comparison to "authors" that make stunning video media...

All in all - without "leverage" in a business system we (small businesses) are all running the risk of taking a business and turning our dream into a 12 hour per day job - that's not freedom.

May 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBrian Morgan

I am impressed with the way you have turned this incident into a platform to bring the issue to the awareness of the internet marketing population, and have provided all the possible solutions that can be applied, whatever your own personal inclinations may be.

I found you thanks to Mike Klingler`s Tweet, and I believe that spreading the word is the best way to attract the audience that has to deal with problems of this kind.

Thanks for the comprehensive article!

I have had this happen to me and I sent the email. A day later my author box and links were included, as well as the whole article, and we were cool! So I say send the email and wait 24-48 hours for a response.

May 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLynda Lippin

Thanks for helping preserve and promote social media networking.

This is a salutary lesson for everyone. He must be quivering in his shoes.

It has also been an education reading your article and I guess in some ways it's an honour that he copied your superb work.

May 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJudith Atkinson

Dear James,
It is disturbing when we are all trying to learn new skills to find success online. Part of our success is to be seen as honest and trustworthy. From your report the act seems quite deliberate and has intent to deceive.

I think you are being fair but I suspect he needs a harsh lesson. So send it and pursue it.
Partners in success, I digg it

This type of deception is what gives the industry a negative reputation. James I believe that you are being fair in bringing this to his attention, perhaps this will also warn others who choose to take the easy way out.

May 25, 2009 | Unregistered Commentermarco brown

James,

Great job in educating us all about this type of underhanded behavior.

As a former journalist, I take copyright and attribution of one's work seriously. And I think marketers should too.

I'd recommend sending that marketing coach your letter. There is no integrity in what he or she did. And, they should be called on it.

After reading your post, I'll be diligent in tracking the results and re-publications of my article marketing efforts.

Wishing You the Best,
Ben

Hi James,
I agree with your initial feeling that you should send off the email. It is well thought out and expresses exactly this person's transgressions. It is neither angry nor venomous and it serves you in a couple of ways. By acknowleding, you let them know that you know what they are up to, and secondly, you are educating them and the internet community that this will not go unoticed. Bravo, you have presented yourself as a true PROFESSIONAL!

May 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterEmilio Marotta

Your article has added a valuable lesson to my web content learning. I'm with you on this, James.

May 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJeffSD

Dear James,

This has been a good lesson to learn for all of us who read it. Thank you for all this info we may otherwise not have received, had you just gone ahead and contacted ezines...
Definately send it. This person needs to know this "lazy" way out needs to stop!

May 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRachael O'Sullivan

I, too, appreciate the value and education you have provided in this post. Well done! Your letter is well thought out and I believe you did a great job in toning down the anger I'm sure you were feeling when you first sat down to write.

How many times did you have to rewrite? LOL - sometimes I have to go over my response to this type of situation 3 or 4 times before I wind up with something constructive and not merely reactive.

Even though this person probably is aware what they did was wrong, there is a slight chance they didn't realize they were breaking the rules. I'd add one sentence to that effect, which explains why you would be willing to give so much help on how they can improve overall.

I'll look forward to hearing how this all worked out!

May 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara Silva

James,

Bravo! You have presented yourself as a true Professional in the industry! I think you should "rock" his world. And yes exposing people who obviously know that they are doing this is a must. I would love to be a fly on his wall when he reads your email....

May 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKathy

Hi James.
Thanks for a great article. You handled the incident very well and gave the offender every opportunity to redeem him/her self.
It is also a nice bit of marketing for getting more traffic and attracting attention to your stuff.
Great job.

Hey James,

I say send it to him!! I am just getting started in this field and I would hate the idea that someone would just come along and steal my work and think it O.K.

If he doesn't have the skill to write his own material, then all he will be teaching his 'recruits' is to do the same thing. Let's put a stop to this now before it really gets out of hand!
Integrity is what allows us to do what we do. If we allow that to be taken, what do we have left?

P.S. I love your response!! Even while scolding this thief you still followed the formula and provided a solution at the end! I LOVE IT!! Sign of a true professional.

May 27, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWilliam A. Ricks

I can tell you're an internet marketer by your letter. My comment is:

It's way too long. I didn't get through 1/2 of it but did notice you don't get to the "meat" until the end. You're not trying to sell the infringer or initiate a dialog or form a relationship, you're informing them of the infringement and the possible consequences. Get to the point. Less than 100 words, "you are using my content illegally, please cease and desist or I will bring legal force to bear against you". Thank you.

May 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMike

Hi James,

Well done. You are truly a great coach and value provider. Also, thank you for the information on how to track someone down. This has happened to me as well but I didn't know how to find the person and wasn't sure how to address the problem. Thank you so much for sharing this. I do hope that this person will see the error in their ways and redeem themselves.

I would like to thank everyone for their comments on this article. You all are true professionals. I am honored and humbled by your kind words.

I did finally send the letter and here is the response:

James,

I think this letter is rather funny, though I appreciate you taking the time to write it.

In addition, thank you for the great advice. You seem like you have it going on when it comes to this topic.

I built that site months ago and to be quite honest, I don't even use it anymore.

I am not currently recruiting for any company and really do not have any future plans to do so either.

I do apologize if you feel violated in any way. I deleted the article. Good luck with your business, thank you again for taking the time to contact me.

June 10, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJames Rouse

Dear James,

You have a wonderfully eloquent way of expressing yourself on paper, er, I mean, typing your thoughts on a computer website. That was one of the most diplomatic and tactful ways of handling that situation. You are a "true professional".

I look forward to reading "your" articles.

Best regards,
