Article Marketing: Tips To Succeed With Article Marketing

Aug 17, 2007
While there are many ways to generate targeted website traffic, article marketing is probably my favorite. That said there are a number of things to consider if you are to find huge success through your article marketing efforts.

(a) Your articles have to be loved by the Article Directory Editors or they won't be accepted. This probably seems obvious but many article writers don't consider the needs of the Editors when writing.

Remember, the bulk of article directories allow authors to submit articles without cost and because of that, they choose which articles to accept and which to reject. Take some time to familiarize yourself with each directories terms; you'll be glad you did.

(b) Your articles have to be loved by the Search Engines in order for your articles to be found. Articles which are "keyword-rich" will be found much more often than those that are not.

It's also important to make sure you're writing articles around keyword phrases which are being searched upon. Doing keyword research before writing an article will greatly improve the overall effectiveness.

(c) Your articles have to be loved by the audience you are targeting, (i.e. your readers). Providing useful, enjoyable content will increase your readership and the number of publishers that will make your articles available on their sites.

If your articles meet the criteria, above, your articles will be accepted, found, read, enjoyed and most importantly... Will bring Targeted Website Traffic to the site(s) you list in your Resource Box.

Here are five more tips to improve the effectiveness of every article you write:

1. Make sure you're submitting original content. Nothing will upset an article directory editor faster than if you submit some private label rights article already found on thousands of sites.

2. Write your articles in the preferred formats. Editors like informative articles that share your expertise.

Articles that include tips, strategies, how-to's, case-studies, reviews, opinions and commentaries are well-received.

3. Write articles that give valuable benefit to your readers. Articles which are considered "hypey," i.e. articles which are considered excessive self-promotion, a sales letter or even a press release won't be accepted so don't waste your time.

4. You must use decent English. It doesn't have to be Shakespeare but be sure to use proper grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc.

5. Articles must not contain information the editors deem illegal, immoral or which promote hate or violence.

In summary, if you're writing articles that are loved by Article Directory Editors, Search Engines and your Targeted Audience, you'll find a whole lot of success with your Article Marketing efforts.

In addition to the directories, your articles will be picked-up by publishers of blogs, websites and ezines. This will greatly increase your "reach" and will bring you a flood of one-way backlinks as well.
