When considering what options are best for my client’s marketing plans, a blog is almost always an integral part of it. After an article has been posted and promoted, we are then free to repurpose that post in other ways. One of the most affordable ways to repurpose them is to post them to free article sites. There are hundreds of sites to choose from. Depending upon how much time you are able to devote to this type of Internet Marketing, we usually suggest 5-10 high ranking sites.
From Overture, a keyword suggestion tool, you will see the millions of searches done to certain keywords. This is a great resource to find keywords that best suit your products and services and connect with your ideal client’s challenges and problems. When these keywords are typed on search boxes of search engines, indexed websites containing articles with those particular keywords will be displayed. And this is what leads traffic to websites with keyword-rich articles. Yes, the magic word is articles.
Content is king. You can say that again. That is why writing articles can be one of the most utilized Internet marketing methods today. Internet surfers just can't get enough of information on various fields and topics. Providing information through these articles is a surefire way to drive hot traffic to your web site, increase your rankings with the search engines and give you new prospects.
Why is this so? Here are the benefits that writing articles can give your Internet business.
1. It's absolutely free.
Too good to be true? Not. Okay, you have to pay for your Internet Service Provider. That's it. All you need is your thoughts, your computer, and your hands. If you have those, nothing will stop you from typing words that will make you complete that article for your website. On which aspect of that process did you really shell out any cent? Maybe later when your electric bills come.
2. Your website will be noticed in a short period of time.
Submit that article of yours to article directories that get the most web traffic and in no time your web site will be crawled. That is if you don't forget including your resource box or byline.
3. Obtain back links automatically.
When you submit your articles to directories, surely, other websites will make use of your article too. With the copyright terms of your articles, the URL of your website will still be intact and will subsequently direct more traffic to your website.
4. Improve your reputation.
As an Internet marketer, if you plainly display your products on your website, you will not gain much conversion rate. Conversion is when your traffic converts to sales. You have to show that you are knowledgeable on your field. And what better way to show that than by writing articles that will allow you some bragging rights, right?
Just let your creative juices flow and jot down or key in those ideas quickly to jumpstart your article writing momentum. With the benefits listed above, a writer's block is the last problem you will ever be able to surmount.
