I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that the main reason you joined TrafficSwarm was to get traffic. Traffic, after all, is the lifeblood of any business.
Of course, you’ve got to be adding value somewhere along the line — either by your product, or being an affiliate for a product, or by creating good content that advertisers will want to pay for — but you need traffic in order to have a business.
Without traffic, you’ve got nothing, no matter how good your product or content is. And so I’d guess that no matter how much traffic you’ve got, you’d like more. And you’d like it for free.
Well that’s what article marketing is all about.
So let me explain a bit about what article marketing is, and how you can get started quickly.
There are lots of web-based businesses that need good, solid content for their website, and many of them have owners who don’t like to create that content. Imagine, for a moment, that some guy named Sam is the owner of a blog on diabetes. Sam might hate to write, but Sam might love his topic, his business, and the money he earns from his blog.
And then let’s say there’s you — I’ll call you Chris — an expert in diabetes — and you love to write. You also want to get lots of traffic to your own diabetic weight loss website. There are tons of people just like you, who like to write, and love free traffic. So you, and all those people like you, write articles on the topics you know about.
When you write your articles, you put your name, a short description about yourself, and a link to your own website. Then, you upload them to a kind of website called an “article directory.”
Article Directories are in the business of displaying your articles so that publishers can search for them, find them, and copy them for their own use. And that’s what publishers will do — maybe lots of them, if your article has a great title and is well written.
And the result is that your article will be published all over the web on lots of other websites. Each of those links will be from a website about your same topic, from a page that is all about your topic. And I gotta tell you that Google LOVES links like these.
Oh, and don’t forget: you’ll also get a link from the Article Directory — some of which are very highly ranked on Google. That’s good, too! In fact, that’s great! (and almost guaranteed, too.)
In the coming weeks, we’ll be focusing more on Article Marketing. You’ll learn about:
* How to write titles that get your article published.
* How to write articles that people will actually read
* Writing formulas that make writing easy
* How to write articles in 15 minutes or less
* How to write your Bio Box so people follow your links
…and much more.
