8 Facts on Promoting your Business with Articles


Business owners have the greatest potential for writing successful articles.

Most people usually start a business because they have a particular interest in certain products or services.  Business owners usually have already gained much knowledge in their particular market. They can optimize their potential by setting aside time to research and study their area of interest to become even more knowledgeable in their market.  One good resourceful book can help ignite the enthusiasm to gain more and more knowledge.  Business owners can use this knowledge to write informational articles and will easily obtain their title as "expertise" once they do so.

Articles highly target your potential customers. Writing articles is actually something that anyone can easily do even if they have never really considered themselves as a "talented" writer.  A little effort to compile some valuable information, can produce great results in targeting your potential customers.  If you write articles related to your business industry, the visitors you receive from your articles will usually be highly targeted, eager and ready to see what else you have to offer. With your articles, you have already established yourself as a means of  a "professional" in your visitor's mind. For this reason you can create open-minded potential customers ready to seek what you have to offer them.


How To Make Money Writing Easy, 350-500 Word Web Articles

If You Can Type, You Can Start Making Money Writing Simple 350-500 Word Web Articles. You Don't Need Experience. In Fact, Most Who Start Don't Have Any. I'll Tell You Everything You Need To Get Started Immediately. I Do It Every Day & So Can You!


Resourceful information should be included about the author.  Marketing with your articles work best when you give them away to be redistributed and used for webmasters seeking content for their sites, blogs, etc. When your articles are submitted to free article directories and groups for distribution, a resource box or area below your article is always included.  You may give your name, a small piece of information about you and your business (make it short and state directly what you do), and your URL to your website.  Having your article  hosted on numerous other sites and blogs is a great way to gain many "incoming" links to your site. The URL that you provided is also a great tool to generate traffic to your site.
You only have one small chance to catch the eye and interest of the reader.  Time should be well spent on creating a interesting title and introduction paragraph for new articles.

The world is full of information...newspapers, magazines, commercials, flyers, mail, bill boards, emails, banners and text ads on websites.  All competing to catch our eye.  We have learned to quickly tune out what does not interest us and proceed on.  Do not try to use a title that you believe will catch "everybody's" interest.   It just cannot be done anyway.  Target only your potential customers and what information they are looking for.

If you are targeting people who are fascinated with their hair, they want great hair...forget the clothes...forget the makeup....it's the hair!  You've got the answer! You provide hair care products.  Don't write in general about "beauty tips" trying to catch every woman's eye.  Write to those hair fanatics.  Provide specific articles targeting those hair fans.  "100 Ways to Poof your Hair".  (And...um...of course you've got the product they're looking for to make this happen.  Include the exact link in your author's resource area.)

The length of your article does not have to be long.  Some people feel they must practically write a book to complete an article. Four to six paragraphs can complete a well-written article.  Instead of trying to cover a whole topic about "Work-at-Home Moms" try narrowing your articles into more specific pieces, for example, "How Work-at-home Moms Manage their Time", and perhaps next, "Three Simple Ways Work-at-Home Moms Relieve Stress".  Creating one huge article that covers a broad subject can take a lot of time and effort and may end up losing the interest of your reader.  Distributing smaller articles targeted on a specific subject will allow you to write and distribute more articles and will target the interest of your reader much easier.

Articles can bring you large amounts of traffic when distributed frequently.  "Frequently" is stressed when speaking of generating large amounts of traffic through article marketing.  Generally, one article will not do this wondrous deed.  For this reason, writing numerous, narrow-targeted articles and distributing them with frequency will create the results you want. On the other side, don't overdo it.  Creating articles like you are some vending machine and popping out one article after another, may cause you to lose focus on quality.  Quality takes more time and effort, but produces much better results and greater chances of having your articles sought after and read.

Articles are successful when they are not advertisements.  Use your articles to give your reader valuable content and information that will have them coming back to you for more.  Don't try to be sly and sneak in a couple of ads here and there.  People sense right away what is intended to be an ad.  Some may continue to read on, but others won't. Save your ads for appropriate places on your site and not in your articles.  Take time to check your spelling and grammar.  If this is an area that you lack in, then find a family member or friend who can help you proofread and determine what sentences may need improvement.
Use small fragments of time to write your articles.

Discover What Good Writing Is All About

Writing is a form of preserved talk, talk that has been pinned down on paper so the words can be heard again. The basic principles of good writing, apart, from grammatical correctness, might be presented as follows:

1) written sentences should sound like natural speech;

2) the words we use must be exact, fresh, full of strength and vitality. Picture making words are better than vague, general words;

3) fresh point of view will give flavor to the style;

4) humor will lighten it.

Though, it is true that written sentences should sound like natural speech, they fully present an image of the natural speech. The reasons for this are fairly obvious: natural speech is a great deal more than words; it is also tone of voice, facial expression, gestures, and even the speaker’s appearance.

The whole point of writing is to create something better than we really talk – something more interesting, more thoughtful, and more effective in every way, for “effectiveness is what matters, and if an expres…

Article Submissions - Pointing You in the Right Direction

All of you who have been thinking of publishing articles probably seem to be noticing a lot more ads showing up when you search Google for article submission sites. So what does this all mean for you?

Well it leaves you the choice of where you wish to submit your article to. Lately new software is out that can let people get an article directory up and running in just a couple of hours and it seems every little fish wants a piece of the action.

So how do you choose the correct article directory for your article submission?

Here are a few tips to get you in the right direction:

Design - You probably are asking yourself why the design of the article directory has anything to do with how good this directory is for you. Well it is, it shows how serious the owners of the site are taking it - the more professional and maintained it looks the longer the site will be online and the more popularity it will gain.

RSS Feeds - Make sure the article directory you are submitting your article to h…

Marketing for Writers When Writing Just Isn't Enough

Many writers write for the experience.

Others dream of having a number one best seller. Both are wonderful reasons for writing. What many fail to realize is that these two do not have to be mutually exclusive. With a little research, you can enjoy writing incredible stories and see to it that they generate a profit.

The first thing that is needed is a business like attitude toward the process. From day one you must:

1) Know your niche.
Research which books are popular in your genre. Go to bookstores and start reading popular authors in your field. Also pick up writing magazines and see what publishers are looking for today.

2) Know your audience. If you are writing for children, for example, know the developmental stage that a child reading your book needs to be and cater to them.

Ex. A five year old would not be a good candidate for a chapter book.

You can also talk to your future readers and find out what really sparks their interest.

Ex. If you are a sci-fi writer, you can go into…

How A Sense Of Wonder Makes Life Richer

It always amazes me when I meet someone who has a disdain for expansion of knowledge.

The other day, over lunch, I was arguing with a girl about a principle of abundance. I illustrated this principle with anecdotes about historically famous millionaires who had applied this principle successfully.

Her response: “I can't use this information. It doesn't come from my experience.”

Since her idea of reality was only what fell into her immediate experience she was discounting the possibility of knowing anything outside it. Yet, unless she was willing to acknowledge the possibility of something outside her immediate circle of influence, how could she invite the actuality of the experience. Unless one has a hypothesis, experimentation is not an option.

Here is another example. During a certain period of time, a friend of mine and I, while working and living in similar circumstances, developed a completely different view of reality. During this time, I read books on super-string theo…

Learn To Trust That Gut-Feeling

It just might save your life
Think of the many times throughout your life when you experienced a strange feeling that turned out to be an early warning of danger.

Use your early-warning radar.

Did you take heed of that warning and avoid the impending danger, or did you ignore your built-in early warning radar and walk right into harm's-way?

The funny feeling in the pit of your stomach or the feeling of the hairs on the back of your neck standing on end are ways of your body telling you that something is very wrong.

Any veteran police officer or soldier who's seen combat and lived to tell about it will explain that part of their survival was due to trusting their "gut-feeling" that they were in danger.

Here's how it works:
There is nothing magical about this sixth-sense. It's simply your body's first reaction to adrenaline entering your blood stream.

As your digestive system is being shut down to allow more blood to flow to your muscles, you get a queasy …

7 Blocks To Creative Thinking And How To Solve Them

Each of us has the power to be creative. It's part of our natural make-up as human beings. The trouble is that, too often, we block our natural creativity and so make errors in thinking and give ourselves more problems than we should. Here are 7 ways to open up your natural creativity and keep the channels unblocked.

1. Don't Make Assumptions. When we assume, we often make an "ass" out of "u" and "me". Assumptions are examples of lazy thinking. We simply don't wait to get all the information we need to come to the right conclusions. There is the story of the customer at the bank who after cashing a cheque and turning to leave, returns and says: "Excuse me, I think you made a mistake." The cashier responds, "I'm sorry but there's nothing I can do. You should have counted it. Once you walk away we are no longer responsible." Whereupon the customer replies: "Well, okay. Thanks for the extra $20."
