If You Are Looking For An Affordable Internet Marketing Technique Consider Article Marketing

Oct 15, 2007
If you put a particular keyword into your favorite search engine you will see millions of search results for a particular keyword. When you type in a keyword in the search boxes of any of the major search engines,you will be shown indexed websites which contain articles with those keywords. If you have been unaware before now, this is what leads targeted traffic to websites with keyword-rich articles. Yeah, the Holy Grail, the Goose that layed the Golden Egg, the "secret" of successful internet marketers is articles.

There is a saying online that content is king. I believe that as well with one caveat, "unique content". The reason writing articles is one of the most utilized Internet marketing methods is because the results are almost immediate and they are measurable. People who are online are looking for information for the most part and the typical internet surfer just can not get enough information on the subject they are interested in. Supplying information for these individuals through informative articles is a surefire way to bring targeted visitors to your web site.

Here is an overview of some of the benefits that writing articles and submitting them to article directories can give your Internet business.

1. Article marketing is free - unless you are outsourcing and using ghostwriters.

Does this sound too good to be true? It's not. Okay, you do have to pay for your Internet Service Provider, but that is an expense you already had anyway. Other than that, all you need is your own thoughts, your computer, and your fingers tapping the keyboard. If you have those, there is nothing that will stop you from typing words that will allow you to put great articles on your website.

2. Article Marketing is one of the best ways to guarantee your website will be noticed in a short period of time.

The secret that successful internet marketers use is submitting articles to the article directories that get the most web traffic. If you do the same you will find that in no time your web site will be crawled by the SE spiders and indexed. That is if you don't forget including your resource box or byline with the proper anchor text. Anchor text by the way is the keyword or keywords you want to be found for with your url hyperlinked.

3. Article marketing helps you to obtain back links automatically.

When you submit your articles to the article directories, surely, other websites will make use of your article too(if it is well written). With the copyright terms of your articles, the URL of your website will still be in tact and will subsequently direct more targeted traffic to your website.

4. Article marketing helps you improve your reputation.

As an Internet marketer, if you do nothing but display your products on your website, you will not have a very high conversion rate. Conversion is when your traffic converts to sales. You have to show the person visiting that you are knowledgeable on your field. And what better way to demonstrate that than by writing articles that show that you are knowledgable in the field.
