You Can Make Money With Article Marketing, Too!

These days it seems as if almost everyone is trying to get published. The competition is fierce. But fortunately there is also a magazine or journal for almost every subject, whether on the internet or in traditional print. These tips will help you explore the publications available and match your interests with one of them. They will also guide you through the process of submitting your articles to an editor.

Include a blog as part of your internet marketing strategy. Writing blog articles gives you the opportunity to write useful information about your business that people may want to link to on their own website. Advice or tips are great things to put in a blog. A well written article educates potential clients about your product or service and drives them to your main website.

Do not write a blog post and then walk away. Sometimes the conversations that can happen in the comments of a post can earn you more money than your main content. Readers are much more likely to return to a site where they can converse with the content provider. You will build trust and return visitors.

Use title tags correctly in every article. It’s important that keywords are included in this that have something to do with your site’s content. It also should describe your page so that it is distinct from title tags used for other sites.

Make sure you do proper research for all of your articles. You want to be known as the guy who has great information, not as the guy who is spouting lies and false facts. Nothing can kill your reputation faster than being branded as a liar or a lazy writer.

Good article marketers know how to strike a balance between article quality and speed of article release. Readers, website visitors, and customers all have short memories. It is vital to give them a regular stream of fresh content to maintain their interest and keep them aware of the products and services being marketed.

Employ an RSS feed in your article marketing strategy. RSS is a way to automate content distribution. An RSS feed delivers your content (i.e. articles) to subscribers as soon as you post it. RSS is an ethical opt-in system that does not constitute spam, because users have subscribe explicitly and remain capable of opting out at any time.

Follow a simple and consistent format. For every article you write, separate your paragraphs, use bullet points, and make sure your editing is correct. Readers lose patience with writers when they lump everything into a difficult to follow mass. Pull important points out so people can see them to entice your audience to keep reading.

Enrich your article with other links. Your article may hold a wealth of information, but if you find related topics that your target audience may enjoy, link to them! Readers love when they can trust a writer to help them find more information on a topic, even if it wasn’t written by the author themselves.

Including pictures or images with your article is a great way to attract more attention. Readers love to have a visual accompaniment to the text they are reading. Be sure that the image you are using is one that you have permission to use, however, and host your images on your own account instead of hotlinking.

We hope these tips have made your path to publication clearer. There is a lot to learn about the publishing industry. But the reward of seeing your article in print is worth the effort. If these tips help you find the right publication and achieve success as a writer, they will have done their job.
