Why Article Marketing? 5 Practical Reasons For Affiliate Marketing

Want to create a second income that could possibly lead you to financial freedom and independence? To be able to spend time with your family while earning an income to support them? The Internet has created this opportunity for every day people to realize the dreams of those thought to be reserved for the privileged. That opportunity lies in the world of affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is simply offering a product for a company, people buy it from you and you get a cut for the sale. Using the Internet, you receive what they refer to as an “affiliate link” from companies you agree to promote. These links will drive the traffic from your site to the appropriate companies where these customers can purchase the products directly from the manufacturer or retailer. Because these affiliate links are unique to you, it's tracked and you receive a percentage or flat rate, depending on the company for the sale.

You can create a web site or start a blog for a platform to begin your Internet marketing endeavor by offering banners or links on your site. I recommend a website simply because it gives you a lot of freedom in creating and marketing. There are many ways of promoting a website and in my opinion, one of the best is article marketing.

How can article marketing help your site?

Drive traffic to your sight

The primary reason in writing an article related to a site you have developed is to drive the visiting traffic to your site. You can use article marketing to get your point out there, and with proper keyword research and Internet marketing tactics, sell from your site.

Creates backlinks to your website

Article marketing can also create backlinks to your site. Backlinks are links that directly connect to your website through a link to go to your site. When search engines are looking for the best match in a search, a site with backlinks will rank higher than a site without any. The search engines see it as a form of merit for the site itself. And ranking higher in the searches better your chances for a sale.

Opportunity to share useful information

The opportunity to share useful information can easily be overlooked in in our preoccupation to earn money on line. I believe everyone has a tremendous amount of experiences to share and many times, that information can help someone in the long run. As long as you write earnestly and candidly, your article will create the chance for credibility to develop.

Create your own credibility

Once you create credibility, you can have customers come again and again, looking to you as the expert dealing in your niche of choice. A niche is the area of expertise you are sharing, so the more forthcoming of your expertise, the more credibility you can develop. Having credibility will also help you when you begin to network with other article writers, allowing an open and honest business relationship to develop.

It's free

Article marketing is absolutely free, raising the question, why isn't everyone doing it? Quite honestly, people are impatient and want an immediate response for their efforts. It could take months before you see a response, sometimes requiring a high number of articles, but remember, it's free! It does take effort and may not be for everyone, but at a cost of nothing, try it. Maybe you will find that you simply enjoy it.

Article marketing can be an excellent opportunity for someone just getting their feet wet in affiliate marketing and learn without financial risk or mistakes. Learning the art of article marketing can even make your site profitable without a dime. Learn as you earn and share what you know!
