If you are anything like me, when I started marketing on the internet I tried everything I could to make successful sales without writing an article. I heard over and over again about article writing and how it improves your ranking, but because I was not into writing anything past 10 or 15 words, I just couldn’t imagine writing a whole article!
Here are 5 Easy to Understand Steps to Article Writing:
Step One: The key is, DON’T PANIC! Take some time and search online for articles in your niche. Read a few articles to get an idea of the flow and structure. Once I did this, I felt more confident that I could do this.
Step Two: Write down every idea that comes to mind about your particular market niche, product, service that you are promoting. Think about 5 Top Keys, 3 Simple Steps, How To, and so on. From there you can either start writing about that particular idea. BUT….. I have something else that you might like even better – skip and go to Step Four.
Step Three: Go to any article directory on the web. If you have never been to an article directory, it is generally a site of articles about every subject you can imagine. Now type in one of your ‘ideas’ that you wrote down into the sites search box. You will be amazed at all the articles that are being written about ‘your’ idea!
Step Four: Take one of those articles and just re-write it! Yup, it’s that simple. But of course, never, ever copy another authors work. This exercise is purely to give you an idea and also structure for your article that you will write. Use catchy titles and be sure to always use your keywords that best fit your market niche.
Step Five: Start submitting your articles to online article directories. Be sure to complete the ‘Resource Box’. This area is very important. It allows you to give a brief description of you, your company AND to include your link back to your site or blog. This is the secret of getting those very important ‘backlinks’ and is the secret to improving your visitor count to your site, which in turn should equate to more sales.
That is it. I hope this gives you more motivation to start writing those articles. Try writing an article at least 2 or 3 per week. Oh, of course, after you are done writing, start submitting your articles to all the article directories. Then watch your tracking stats on your website to see how effective your hard work has helped!
