Most business owners are overwhelmed with the day to day running of their businesses that they dont have time to put into business promotion. I encourage you to take time and write a quick article now because even one article can give you many lasting benefits in the future.
The article can be short, just pick a topic you are an expert in and write. You'll see that you'll quickly be able to fill a page or two. Now edit it. Edit some more. That's it you are done.
Here are five ways this article will help you:
1. Establish yourself as an expert
2. You can use this article in your brochures etc that you give to clients with "originally published on website name", giving you more credense.
3. Be seen by many new people. The readers on the site you write for will now know who you are (if you are memorable enough).
4. Get qualified leads driven to your site via links on your article(s).
5. Increase your "page rank". There have been books written on search engine optimization, but here's basically what it means: Google (the most popular search engine) displays search results combining the keywords searched for and the sites reputation (page rank). So a higher page rank gets you listed higher which gets you free clicks more often. So writing for sites with a high page rank can get you more free search engine visitors.
