Why Use Articles In Marketing Your Online Business?

Apr 7, 2008
Well written Articles are now used to generate more traffic for a particular online business, this is called Article marketing.

The articles posted do not necessarily provide direct information about the products or services that the business is offering but should contain helpful information related to the company's line of business.

If the site sells children's toys, you can write about how toys affect the development of children. But how do this article help generate traffic to your site? Below are the different reasons why informative articles provide the extra edge to online businesses that implements this method.

1.Well written articles trigger readers' interests. If you have an article with valuable content, many people will read it and even spread it. Therefore, you will be able to reach more people and this thing becomes viral in nature. Reaching more people means generating more traffic to your site.

2.You can advertise your site for free by submitting your informative article to article directories, here are some of the high ranking sites:

Ezine Articles
Idea Marketers
iSnare
Go Articles
Article City

Make sure that you have embedded links that will direct the reader to your site. You can also promote your site through the reference box that is usually allowed with the articles. It should contain details about you, your business and what your site has to offer. Have your business URL or website included so that the readers can easily access it if ever they are interested. Think about the savings you have made in terms of paying for PPC campaign or Pay per Click advertising expenses.

3.It increases your link popularity. This is another factor considered by search engines in ranking results. Informative articles can directly help your site achieve the level of link popularity needed for your site to gain higher ranking in the search engine's list. Each time a site posts or shares your article (provided it has a link on it); the site becomes your link partner. The more link partner you gain the more "votes" you will have which makes your site more valuable and will be considered top rank.

Well written articles also generate good image for your site. If you have a good reputation, people will trust your products and business as a whole. This will encourage more readers and potential customers to visit your site which can mean good business conversion for you.
