Precisely How Easy Is Article Marketing?

By James Richards

Although it could be difficult to credit, as a Net marketer, there are still some people out there, trying to earn income online, that have never heard of article marketing. And again, as an internet marketer, you know just how much carefully targeted traffic they're missing.

Hence for these poor, lost souls, a bit of education. Article marketing is simply the writing of countless articles that will interest our possible clients. We write them, then submit them to various article directories in the hope that Google and other search sites will pick them up and deliver them in their search results.

We attempt to make the articles as important as we can. We add "keywords" to them so that the search sites will see them as authoritative and informative and place them high up in the results when a person searches for our keyword.

In these articles, we also place our internet site link and a good, convincing "call to action." We tell the reader how we are able to help them solve their problem, and then offer a link and tell them to click. It's all very simple.

All of this, so far, is what we call the straightforward part. I mean, honestly, just about anybody can write one or two interesting articles on their material.

No, the hard part comes when you have to draft hundreds of articles on that same subject matter. After just a few articles, thinking of more interesting things to point out and new techniques of announcing it.

It is at about that point that many article marketers will turn to a software program called an "article spinner." This is a tiny programme which will take one article and rewrite it, or "spin" it if you will into countless versions.

If you do some web research about article spinners, you'll get conflicting viewpoints. But don't permit yourself to be swayed. You must decide whether or not you wish to try it, test out a couple of programs, and form your own view.

After you've written your articles, it is time to submit them. This is, again, something that can be done manually , or electronically. There are applications that will submit your articles to loads of article directory websites. This again, is something that you'll need to test out and choose for yourself if it's for you.

Honestly, there are only a couple of article directory websites that really matter. Nonetheless submitting your article to lots of directories will get you some link love from search websites.

Not to sway you in any way, but only for info purposes. It's the opinion of this writer that more articles submitted to the key directories is better than less articles submitted to masses of directories. Your experience could lead you to agree or disagree.

Although each marketer has to test and experience to choose what does it for him, the majority of marketers normally use a mixture of not only all article marketing techniques, but all the other methodologies as well.
