Article Marketing-3 Simple Steps

Updated on August 14, 2009

Article Marketing-Take Your Time

Article marketing is definitely one of the most powerful ways to drive traffic to any website and a great way to generate leads.  The thing is if your article marketing is not done properly you are just wasting your time.

You shouldnt let this scare you though because with practice you can have your article marketing doing just as well as the gurus.  Simply put if you take your time to do things properly you too will become an article marketing genius.

In this hub I will give you a few strategies that you can begin following to help you move article marketing into your affiliate business.

Article Marketing-Get People To Open

In article marketing you want to get people opening your articles.  To do this you need to work on getting people to see your articles by learning to get them into the search engines where you will get the best quality traffic from.

By taking the time to make your articles better than anyone eles you will quickly see the traffic rising on your articles.  You will see people clicking through to get all the information they can.

The big key in article marketing is to give as much information away without giving away the information that counts.  They can get the important information by clicking on your links.  People clicking on links equals dollars in your pockets.

Article Marketing-Keep People Reading

In your article marketing you want to make sure people keep reading what you are writing.  By doing this you are ensuring article views which in turn will ensure better conversion rates in whatever you may be promoting.

To do this you want to keep your articles as interesting as possible.  As well as interesting don't be scared to mix a little humor into your article marketing.

You want to give them just enough information to want them looking for more.  by doing this you are ensuring they will continue to read to get the info they are looking for.  this also ensures they will keep reading and eventually get to the resource box where they are likely to click thru.

Article Marketing-Converting

Most of your article marketing is done to get people clicking through at the resource box.  Clicking through is the ultimate reason you write the articles.

In order to do this you need to have people convinced when they are reading the resource box.  You want them to be confident and trusting when it comes time to look at your links.  This trust is built mainly by displaying your skills and your name.

Another thing that some people say helps is to offer free giveaways or bonuses.  that is okay as long as what you are giving away has some value.  Many people are giving away garbage and that can quickly have people doubting your integrity.

Article Marketing-Keep The Confidence

Just remember your article marketing will greatly benefit your online career as long as you take the time to do things right.  its a matter of giving your readers enough information to keep them curious.

The ultimate resource is what they will find once they click through to your website.  So make sure no matter what you are offering it is of great quality.  if they have clicked through you need to keep them wanting because if you let them down there is a good chance they will be gone forever.

      Brilliant! One way I like to think of is writing the articles as a 'mini sales letter'. The idea is to make the reader want to keep reading to the end... And then click through to read more :)
