What's the quickest, easiest way to get exposure for your business all across the web AND turn yourself into an expert, in one fell swoop? The answer is Article Marketing. And if you haven't heard of it, or tried it yet, you're missing one of the most effective and inexpensive marketing strategies available on the net.
If you can write, or find someone to write for you or edit your work, you can use Article Marketing to dramatically increase your exposure on the web. And you'll immediately start generating all kinds of links to your web site, which will drive qualified traffic to you 24/7.
And the best part is, you can write about ANYTHING. What do you know a lot about? What is your area of expertise? What topic would your prospects love to learn more about? What have you already written about for your web site or newsletter?
Try this exercise to generate 3 articles to start with:
(1) Identify 3 topics you know a lot about
(2) Come up with 5 tips for each topic
You've just outlined three articles you can use to jumpstart your article marketing efforts!
Once you have written these articles there are many places you can post them for free. These are sites visited by web site and newsletter publishers looking for content.
They pick up your articles and include them in their newsletter or on their web site. They include your information and web site address with the article, so everyone knows you wrote it and where they can get more information like the article they just finished reading.
If you are currently writing articles to post on your web site, or to publish in your newsletter or ezine, you can re-use these articles to easily get started with article marketing and get your name out all across the web.
Suddenly you become an expert because your articles and advice start showing up all over the place. Search on "10stepmarketing" or "Debbie LaChusa" and you'll see what I mean. I've accomplished this in a matter of weeks, with an initial posting of only seven articles. I've continued to post articles and you can bet I'll keep on doing it.
You may even get feedback from readers like I have. Here's one I got that totally made my day:
"Just finished reading your article. ITS GREAT! I'll be implementing all of your ideas ASAP."
How awesome is that?! It tells me my articles are getting out there, I am getting the word out about my business and I'm helping more small business owners to be successful.
And just think, it could be doing be doing the same for you. Getting your business name out there, positioning you as an expert in your field, and sharing your knowledge and expertise with your potential clients.
