Getting Started With Article Marketing

A few tips on marketing your business with articles

One of the quickest free ways to drive visitors to your web pages is through article marketing. And the biggest reasons most affiliate marketers use and recommend writing articles is that they rank so well in the search engines. With good keyword research and their use within your article it is very possible to have your page ranked very high in search engines of it's on accord.

Article Directories.

There are many article directories that are willing and ready to accept your articles by following a few guidelines. Article directories rank very well in the search engines which will give your article an added boost. The point of this is to drive visitors to your web pages so having an article with high page rank in a search engine can greatly increase those much needed visitors.

Each directory you submit your article to will have different guidelines according to the length or word count of the article and where any links to your web pages are placed. Some allow links anchored directly in the article which is best, while others allow links only in the bio box submitted with the article. A bio box is a short description of yourself with contact info and links to your pages. You want to try to take advantage of all areas where you can link back to your pages.

Your article is not a sales page.

Some of this may sound a little intimidating at first but is actually a fairly easy process. Just realize that an article is not a sales page. Your article is an info page meant to give suggestions or general knowledge to the reader. If you given good information then they may want to look a little closer in what you have to offer. That's when the reader will notice your links within the article or perhaps a call to action in the bio box. Check your links carefully to ensure they are working properly after your article has been approved for submission.

Article structure.

Your article should also be precise and to the point. You only have a short time to catch the readers attention so make sure you have written something long enough to get your point across but too long your reader will loose interest and head elsewhere.

Short paragraphs will help hold your readers attention better. Most may not read your article word for word but briefly scan down the page. Having the shorter paragraphs will likely hold the readers attention longer and get more of the information you intended to convey with your writings. Using the words "you" will help hold the readers attention also.

Article marketing should be a big part of your marketing campaign and will payoff with increased traffic to your websites and hopefully convert into sales. With good research and providing good information to your readers all your article marketing efforts will pay off sooner than you may realize.
