Article Marketng: Increase Your Online Sales

Article Marketing is Key

It’s true what they say, articles do effectively bring you traffic to your site. And the cost is virtually free! It just takes some of your time to write the articles for your particular market niche. Utilizing your keywords will be very important. The Author’s Resource Box is another area that is of importance because it allows you to briefly talk about you and your company, but also a link back to your site. This ‘back link’ is the KEY in getting more visitors to your site, which should equate to more sales and online business success.

So if you have been putting it off ….. don’t! Start today, write an article and submit it to the article directories. Then watch the tracking on your website. If you continuely write and submit articles with your link back to your site, you should even see your ranking increase too. So article writing is still a win, win.

AND …. if you just don’t have the time or really don’t like to write, then consider outsourcing it to either a virtual assistant or you could also check Elance.com or Scriptlance.com, post a project for someone to write articles for you. Whatever way you go – Just Do It!

  1. Thanks for reminding me about the merits of article marketing. I just happen to read your article at a moment of indecision. I have been procrastinating about writing articles and now at the point of starting I become uncertain about starting. I like your ending: Just Do It! Thanks for the advice. I’m off to do it….
    Love your blog…

    • Thanks you Keleta. You know I fought and fought for a long time to try to ‘get around’ writing articles. I actually started out by having others (through Scriptlance.com) write for me. But then I noticed they were just using ‘robot’ software and no personal touch. I think the personal touch of how we communicate is also important. Thanks so much for taking the time to offer your comments!

    • Thank you Starr – and coming from you, that truly means a lot. I believe in article marketing as I see results almost instantly I will get traffic to my site. I appreciate you taking the time to comment.

  3. Would you mind touching base on how you find witers to outsource with? Some of the credentials you look for in them?

    • Hi Collette, If you want to outsource your article writing then I suggest using either ELance.com or ScriptLance.com. I have used both.

      When placing a ‘project’ be sure you are very clear what your project requires and what you expect. Being very detailed with your project will weed out some writers. For example: You can say you want someone that is good with english, sentence structure and can provide sample of current writing.

      When you go to the outsourcing sites – there are good FAQ’s you can read and also look at other project descriptions for ideas.

      When reviewing the offers you receive, there will be a profile for that company or person. Reading all their informationis key. You can also send them a PM (private msg) requesting additional information or examples of their work.

      I hope this gives you enough to start your search for a wrtier — and I think this might be something I should write about!! 🙂

  4. Good tips. Will have to work that back into our strategy!

  5. Awesome post about article marketing.
