Article Marketing Strategies That Propel The Author And Website To The Top

Apr 1, 2008
Article Marketing has in recent years taken the Internet fraternity by storm. This is because it is considered the smartest and cheapest way of promoting your online business irrespective of where you live. There are enormous benefits in writing and publishing articles but are you marketing your articles in the best possible manner to reap the rewards of article marketing?

A well written article displaying your expertise needs to get the maximum publicity it deserves. This exposure can bring you the author and your website tremendous benefits. You get recognized as an authority in your field of expertise and your website increases in link popularity, improves in search engine ranking and gets more targeted traffic. To achieve these rewards in article marketing, you have to adopt these strategies.

1. The best way of getting your article read by a great number of people is to get your article distributed by a recognized article distributor who will distribute your articles for a fee. Your articles will be distributed by them to various article directories, article announcement sites and ezines which are bound to be read by thousands of webmasters and others interested in the theme of your article. Good, quality, authoritative articles are bound to be picked up and published by webmasters in their websites and ezines which in turn will create a viral effect thus bringing you an enormous amount of targeted traffic.

2. Article Distributors do not distribute your articles to all the leading article directories for various reasons. You can find out the directories that have been missed out and identify them by searching for them in Google or the other search engines. You should pick out the best of these by studying the Page Rank and the Alexa Rank of these directories and submit your articles to these personally.

3. Another important strategy you have to adopt to succeed in your article marketing is to first identify the top most websites with the same theme as that of your website. Visit the sites that have a high PR and a good Alexa Rank and check whether they accept articles. Many webmasters accept good authoritative articles to provide their website visitors a great experience. Submit your articles to these sites where they have provision to accept article submissions. Once you are accepted by them as an expert in your field, you should have no difficulty in being a regular contributor to these quality websites. You will thus be assured of a regular stream of targeted traffic for a long time.

4. There are some very popular websites that accept article submission by e-mail only, possibly to eliminate spam. You should also identify these websites and submit your articles to them by e-mail. Some of these are high traffic sites and it will certainly be worth your effort.

5. If you possess the ability to write good articles related to the theme of your website, you should publish them in your website. Good content is what your visitors will be interested in and if you provide them with it, then you will have succeeded in enticing them to be regular visitors to your website.

Conclusion:

As an author, to succeed in article marketing, you should endeavor to market your articles in every possible way. Every little effort counts especially in the early stages. These smart strategies will help you to be recognized as an expert in the Internet world and propel your website to the top.
