Getting The Most From Your Article Marketing Efforts
What’s your plan when it comes to article marketing? Do you have a mentor or someone you can contact to show you how to market your business using article marketing? If not, then maybe today’s lesson will be of much use for you. I want to show you some article marketing basics that you need to know to have success with your overall internet marketing campaign.
Many online business owners get discouraged when they see that their article marketing efforts aren’t beneficial when it comes to getting more new sales. They give quickly due to lack of results, and they sit with the notion that article marketing simply doesn’t work. In fact, they leave with the notion that nothing works… expect for advertising - and they don’t have the money for it, so they just abandon the field altogether.
These people eventually make their way to a site like Ebay and try to make a living of there. But due to the increased competition and inexperience of how to get more traffic to their Ebay listings… they give up on Ebay too and then slowly return to the world of a 9 to 5 day job… something that they hate the most.
If you’ve tried article marketing before and it hasn’t worked for you, then you should keep trying. The bottom line is that you need alot of articles to have success with article marketing. I’m not talking about a couple hundred articles…. I’m talking about a couple thousand. This is just the nature of the beast.
You will find people on the article directories who have over 2,000 articles written. These people understand the game and are on top of it when they need to get more sales and profits with article marketing. They must have been getting results more and more each day as their article traffic started to rise and rise…. otherwise they would have quit doing article marketing and focused on something different.
Don’t be fooled. You won’t make tons of money with article marketing when you first start out. And anyone who tells you this needs to be ignored with great vigor. Focus on getting your content written and uploaded to your website and also create new content for the article directories, and you will be on the path to success.
Also when writing your articles, make sure you have a good resource box. This is the area where you get to plug your website information so that people can visit your site and learn more about you or get them to buy something. For starters, make your resource box sound normal.
Start it off with something like, “About The Author”. Then go and introduce yourself and tell your readers why they should listen to you and why they should click through to your website. If the article they read from you was good, they will want to learn more information.
I currently use “About The Author”, and it’s been going well pretty much for me. Just be wary about making your resource box sound like a sales pitch. This is not the area where you should be pitching your product or service. Lead them to a page where they can get more free information from you, and mention this in your resource box.
These article marketing tips are things that you need to do to have success with your online business. Get started on using these techniques, because you never know when they will come in handy for you. I promise you won’t regret it.
Good luck with using article marketing in your business today.
