How To.... Use Articles To Promote Your Business

Feb 29, 2008
More and more people are using the internet to promote their business for free! They are using Article Marketing. If you want to start promoting with Article Marketing, then here are some tips on how you can do it!

First of all, you need a business - whether it is a product or service. Then you need an article. You can write it yourself or you can pay someone to do it. There are professional article writers all over the internet; you just need to find them. Alternatively, you can find a freelance website where you can pay someone to write your article. The latter generally works out slightly cheaper.

When thinking of writing your article, (or getting it written for you), you should keep some things in mind. First and more important is SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

A major SEO tip in article writing is to do the follow: think of a keyword, for example, if you have a business of freelance writers, you could try something like "work from home." The more this sentence is added to your article (or articles), the higher it will come up in a search engine when it is typed in the search engine by the reader.

You can use certain programs and websites to check the keyword density of an article. You can also come across sites and again, programs, that will check the "Page Ranking" of your site - the better the rank, the more people come across it, basically.

Once you have your finished article, you should think about where you want to publish it. There are thousands of article directories where you can submit your piece of work.

Or, alternatively, you could a find a relevant website to your article and ask to submit it there. Either way, with a little research, you will find a site (or multiple ites) that will prove to be beneficial for you.

Make sure to add links on the author's bio and if possible, in the article itself. The whole point is that the readers will get to know you and your expertise, and will want to read more or check out information about you. If you will not put a link to your site, all the article writing and submission effort will have very little effect.

The next thing you should do is learn how to repurpose your article, so that you can use it again and again, and submit it to many different directories. This way, you don't have to spend the time or the money having new articles written, you can "tweak" it and therefore use it again.

Submitting your article to the right place is essential for boosting traffic to your site and therefore finding new potential clients. If you spend a little bit of time researching the best sites and directories, you will find that Article Marketing isn't as difficult as it would first initially sound. So, good luck, happy submitting and I hope that this has been helpful to you!
