Are You Using Article Marketing?

You hear people talking about article marketing a lot.  To some people it sounds almost intimidating but it really shouldn't.  Article marketing can gain you a lot of targeted traffic to your sites.  There are people getting a lot of sales by using this method.
What makes article marketing so great is that it is free advertising.  Often you can get paid for your articles! Completely free to join, you gain more traffic and you can get paid for your articles.  Search engines love article directories and will give quality articles a good ranking.  When you write an article, you can add a link back to your site in the author's resource box.  There are also companies that allow you to write your article and link back to your site.
When you write an article, do not be too spammy.  Produce quality articles and you can link back to your site.  Do not just write a quick article just for the sake of adding your link.  You want people to be interested in what you have to say and you want people to be interested enough that they will click on your link to find out more information about your site.  If it is too spammy or thrown together quick just for the sake of adding your link, it probably won't be a quality article.
Here are a couple of examples of my articles (now I have written articles about various topics but these are a couple of the business related ones.)  You may want to consider joining the site, it is free and you can earn a little extra income from your articles.

  1. Hi Dawn,
    I have usee article marketing for years. Too many people don't realise that it is very effective marketing that can be free if you write your own articles and it will build over time as more and more people link to it.
    It has been around for a long time but article marketing is still a very useful tool for any home business. So thank you for reminding those of us that haven't used it in a while and opeing the eyes of those that haven't used it yet :-)
