Who's Reading Your Articles Anyways?

Mar 14, 2008
It has long been accepted that article writing is one of the best tools used in online businesses. In fact, since the advent of printing technology, writing has been a primary component of advertising.

For this reason, most online businesses contend that the trend of online success nowadays greatly depends on the articles. No wonder why the adage ěContent is Kingî has long been accepted in the virtual industry today.

On the other hand, generating your own line of readers is not that easy. This is because there are so many websites and online business that are striving to succeed in the same level of marketing strategy like the one you are using.

Hence, what happens next is a clear competitive industry where everybody is trying to create their own area of market wherein they can entice their potential customers to patronize their product through article marketing.

Then again, the fact remains the same. There are still some online businesses that fail in their ventures. That even if they use and write articles in order to promote their website, their products, and services, they are still having a hard time of making it to the top.

What most of these people do not know is the fact that article marketing is not purely based and dependent on the articles itself. It is also important to know and assure yourself that your article is being read. Also, it is extremely important that you know who your readers are.

The problem with most online businesses is that they keep on producing articles, posting them to other websites, ezines, and article distribution sites, but the fact that they have selected the wrong place is already enough to generate negative results to their business.

In article marketing, it is not enough that you have written and submitted your articles to distribution sites. It is also important to know who your readers are. In this way, you will know that those who will read your articles will have the tendency to respond to your resource boxî and will eventually patronize your products or services.

So, where does this put you now? Do you have to change your articles or your topics? Or do you have to focus on a specific and targeted distribution sites or ezines that have a targeted niche market? They fail to realize that focusing on a niche market will definitely generate more positive results than merely posting your articles to different sites and ezines.

Focusing on a niche market will enable you to promote your website to a group of people who have the common interest that is associated to your line of business.

For instance, your business is all about golf equipments. You write articles about some golf tips and on how to choose golf equipments. Then, you have decided to post your article to one of the sites that is general.

What happens next is that your article may be read, no doubt about that, but with people who are not basically interested with golf. They may be enticed or motivated but the fact that it is not their primary purpose why they have visited that particular site, chances are, you cannot generate profit or even traffic from them.

Thus, it is important to generate articles that are focused on your niche. Think of it as a fish that you want to catch by using a bait. Once you have hooked them up, it would be easier to generate income from them.

So, if you really want to know who your readers are, try to find your niche. You can do this by conducting different researches, surveys, interviews, etc. In this way, you will be able to generate applicable information that you can use in construction informative articles.

Boiled down, it is extremely important to identify first your readers before you continue on generating more articles.

If you will not exert some effort in finding who your readers are, their likes, their demographic profile, or anything about them that will be very useful on your part, then, you will never be successful in the business.

What's worse, you can never see the efficiency of article marketing. Its concept and principle will never work best for you.

Moreover, keep in mind that if you want to communicate with somebody, you have to use the words he has in his head. In this way, you will be able to get him on the hook.

Hence, in order to succeed in your business and at the same benefit from article marketing, it is important to know who your readers are before you try to use the other marketing tools.
