Writing articles is one of the best and most effective ways
of promoting your business because it does three things:
*Brands you as an expert. *Makes your marketing efforts
viral. *Gives you content to attract potential buyers.
There are several things you can do to make sure that your
articles get read.
1. Write an article potential buyers will find interesting.
Even if you know your topic very well, it pays to do
research. Find out what changes are occuring in your field
and include that material in your articles. No one wants to
read something that is outdated or inaccurate. Readers will
find your material far more interesting if you tell them
something they don't already know, and you present it from
your own unique perspective.
2. Submit your article to the right places. Article
directories are a great place to submit articles because
they are high traffic sites. Many offer a wide variety of
categories so you can submit just about any kind of
article. It will also increase your ranking in the search
engines because you are linked to high traffic sites.
There are also other options for submitting your articles.
You can use lists that accept articles, as well as submit
to sites that accept articles on your topic.
The way to find sites that accept articles on your topic is
to do a search in the search engines. Search on your topic
plus the key words "article submission". Then when you find
sites in your topic, read the guidelines carefully. You
want your article to have a higher chance of getting
accepted. The way to do this is to follow the guidelines.
Here are several places you can submit your articles:
3. Write regularly. Most sites, and especially lists, will
only accept article submissions on a weekly basis, so to
write more often than that, is a waste of time. However,
when you submit your articles on a regular basis, it
establishes a relationship with the reader. The reader will
begin to trust you, giving you credibility.
Credibility is one of the hardest things to establish
online. By writing articles that readers will read, you are
building a relationship with readers. Building a
relationship with the reader will get them to trust you.
Once they trust you, they will buy from you.
Write articles on a regular basis and you can establish a
reputation for credibility online. Write about things that
people want to read about, and you will be well on your way.
