  2. 2. 1 EFFECTIVE ARTICLE MARKETING TIPS TO UTILIZE. It's important to write great content for your website, but it's also important to market that content. Writers have to be willing to work to attract readers to their articles. Before you begin your article marketing venture, it is important for you to understand exactly what article marketing is. In simple terms Article marketing is a process where you write articles with links back to your website or to an affiliate site so that you can get traffic to your site more easily. You do not have to be an amazing writer in order to be a great article marketer. A lot of marketers are scared of writing and will not even attempt to get their foot through the door. Never be worried too much about your writing talent. This is something you can easily work on and improve over time, all you have to do is get started. With this article, you'll find a selection of tips that will help you get on your way to write and effectively market your articles. http://www.eblogsystem.com
  3. 3. 2 HERE ARE A FEW TIPS ON EFFECTIVE ARTICLE MARKETING. IDENTIFY YOUR TARGET MARKET (THE DEMAND). Even though article marketing is dealing with content, it's still a business that works through the basic principles of supply and demand. This means you're going to need to identify the demand in the market and then formulate your writing to address that need and to act as the supply. Investigate the topics you want to cover thoroughly. By doing research before writing, you can ensure that your articles are current and information packed. Your articles will then be useful to your readers and many will start to view you as an expert in your niche, which will make conversions easier. CREATE AN ACCOUNT ON AN ARTICLE DIRECTORY WEBSITE. When creating your accounts, Article directories should never charge for a sign-up. If they do, it is not a reputable company, and you should not use it. Only using the sites that are free is an intelligent and efficient way to be noticed. Sites
  4. 4. 3 that charge generally don't get as much attention. Some of the sites you might consider using are Ezine-articles, Article-snatch, go-articles, squidoo, article-base and so many. All you have to do is search the web for a list of article directories and choose the ones you prefer. HAVE A DESIRE TO BE HELPFUL. Your readers should find your articles useful. Your legitimate desire to help your customers is more important than the quality of your text. Visitors will know if you are just trying to sell them something and not help them out. CREATE GREAT CONTENT. The content you write forms the core of your article marketing effort. Your articles have considerable value. If you run across your articles posted without your consent and without links to your website, rectify the situation. Some people go for seize and desist but try to use a reasonable approach with content thieves. If you convince them to use a properly-attributed and linked version of your article, you can turn your loss into a benefit.
  5. 5. 4 ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR EXPERT SOURCES. When writing an article within your niche, it isn't enough to say that you know something. Be sure to back up your knowledge with solid references. Locate all of your references and copy and paste the quotes and information you want into a single reference document. Make sure you include crediting information (name and location of reference material). Use this document as a handy source to write your articles. KEEP IT SHORT AND SWEET. Your content should not be full of rambling sentences, or you may lose the attention of the person you need most- your reader! While telling stories are a great way to get your reader involved and comfortable, you shouldn't alienate them by forcing them to read a biography. Get to the point! DON’T BE AFRAID TO OUTSOURCE. While it's certainly possible to create your own marketing articles to promote your business, you'll enjoy better results if you use the services of an expert. Keep in mind though, that writing
  6. 6. 5 requires a certain amount of talent. Sure you might be able to spell and use punctuation but there is an art to writing that goes beyond mechanics. It might even come to your attention that you just saw alliteration. However, if you are lacking a creative way with words your content will sound bland. There's more to writing than what you read in books. So if you can afford it hire someone to create your content, go for it. BE CONSISTENT AND HAVE QUANTITY. One of the keys to article marketing is quantity. Quality is very important too, but if you publish one article a week you will not get the results you want. Effective article marketing requires a large volume of well-written articles to keep your information available. Over time, your hard work will pay off, don't let yourself get discouraged if it’s a little slow. It will take at least 6 months for your work to start bringing in noticeable results.
  7. 7. 6 PUBLISH AN EBOOK USING YOUR ARTICLES. Once you've written many articles over time, you have certainly developed a large portfolio all across the Net. Take the best articles you have written and publish an eBook that can be marketed to promote your service or product. If you have a good eBook, it will be shared which will result in additional business for your company. SET UP TRENDING NEWS ALERTS. Always try to stay as relevant as possible in your article marketing campaign by creating a set of email alerts for any breaking news. If you can be among the first to get out in front of a breaking product or trend, your readership will stay tuned in and appreciate your site as a source of legitimate and useful information. JOIN MARKETING FORUMS. Another great article marketing tip is to know where to look if you're interested in getting new and unique articles. Forums can be a great place to look because there are usually very knowledgeable people that frequent them.
  8. 8. 7 You can approach these members and see if they'll write articles for you or providing with some valuable input for your research. One place I really like is warrior forum, but you can search the web for the ones that apply to you. PROMOTE YOUR ARTICLES TO YOUR READERS. Promoting your articles is something that must not be forgotten after you spent all that time and energy writing them! Market them in a newsletter to your customers and take advantage of tweeting about the articles too (do not forget the link to the article!) You may want to link your article to your blogging website from time to time. A great place that will help you with this is SocialAdr, it great for getting your content bookmarked, tweets and likes and helps with google rankings. USE SPECIFIC, CONCRETE WORDS IN YOUR TITLE. Your article's title should concisely describe what the reader can expect to learn from the article. An example of a bad title might be "Working at home," while a much better title for the same article might be "How to Make Money
  9. 9. 8 in Your Spare Time Writing Article Marketing Tips on Amazon Mechanical Turk." A good title also helps in getting recognized in the search engines. The longer the keyword string you choose to write your article on, the more specific and focused your article needs to be. For example, the reader who finds your article by searching for "article marketing tips" will be looking for much more particular advice than the one who searches for "marketing tips." Bear this specificity in mind when you write. CREATE BACKLINKS AND BOOKMARKS. Online article marketing poses far more challenges than article marketing in print or traditional media channels. Focus on your article content and look for ways to build its link equity, by creating backlinks and more backlinks, in addition to indexing and bookmarking all your links. This takes patience and diligence, but you will ultimately be rewarded by a gradually increasing search engine and site relevance for your content. If you don’t have a lot of time to spare you can use sites like SocialMonkee to create backlinks
  10. 10. 9 and post them for you and Backlink indexer for indexing your backlinks. http://www.eblogsystem.com USE SHORT AND LONG SENTENCES IN YOUR ARTICLES. One important technical aspect to effective article marketing is to use sentences of varying lengths when you write. Short sentences are the most effective, but repeated short sentences are stultifying. Long sentences can explain more complex ideas. They are more likely to confuse and slow readers down, though. The ideal article uses a healthy dose of both kinds. SET YOUR GOALS AND OBJECTIVES. While producing good content is the core of any effective article marketing campaign, never dive into article-writing without having a clear business plan in place. You should take the time to set goals and formulate your strategies long before you start writing your first article. This
