Why Not Publish Your Articles Directly into Ezines!?!?

by 3 comments
I am wondering how many people attempt to publish their articles directly into Ezines.

Speaking as a relative novice here who has only a handful of articles in directories, I am wondering if this is not a better way to go.

It is my goal to become an expert in the field of Ezine Marketing. I know this will take time. But I'm guessing that it is important to be good at one particular thing at first. I still have a long way to go.

Anyone with experience?

Drawbacks of Submitting your quality material to directories like Ezine Articles.

* People take your content and leave out the resource box.
* Your article doesn't stick around on the top of search engines for long.
* It's hard to find a targeted audience.
* ____________________ (any others?)

In my limited research so far, I am beginning to think that it would be much better to get your articles published directly into Ezines.

Potential Benefits of Directly offering Articles to Publishers of Ezines

* You can choose the ezine.
* Easier to target your audience
* You can check that it was published.
* You can do it for free in most cases.
* You can make sure your resource box is included.
* Often you can still get organic traffic if the ezine is indexed on the publishers site.

I am seeing these threads like "I wrote 150 articles in one hour" (slight exaggeration) and a heck of a lot of stuff about article marketing, spinning. It kind of goes against the grain a little.

I've just printed off a list of over 100 ezines with contact details of publishers who accept articles and I've decided to make this my "All Consuming Marketing Approach" until further notice.

Like some advice I got from a wise warrior "Make Relationships". So I am going to call them directly and ask what kind of articles they may need and see if I can slowly develop some rapport with the publishers. What do you think???

I would be interested in promoting other high quality IM products using this approach once I have established that it works (PM me if you are interested in sharing your product (I'm not looking for a free copy BTW as I have too much stuff to read as it is!!)

    sub to ezine would be great. the only thing is that after the publication, it is out of circulation.

    maybe 1st sub it to ezines, and to dir's after publication. that way you recycle it, 'cause it will stick around the dir's. and the more numbers you build in dir's, the more people will notice YOU.

    i am currently actually searching for related ezines in my niche....

      I can take a look at the directory that I have access to to see if there are any ezines that might match your offer. Just let me know.

    Why not do both? Submit to directories and specific ezines.

    Regarding your points, how would an article in an ezine rank in the search engines? And couldn't someone steal your article from an ezine just as they could from the web?

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    Hopefully someone can enlighten me on something that I'm confused about it. So when it comes to CPM, from an advertisers point-of-view, they pay for every 1,000 impressions of their ad. Now their ad is viewed on multiple sites. So let's say it's viewed 100 times on Site A, 200 times on site B, 300 times on site C, and 400 times on site D. Once that happens, the advertiser pays. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how that works? From the perspective of a publisher is where I'm more confused. So if I'm displaying CPM ads on my site, am I paid everytime the ad is viewed on my site or does the ad have to be displayed 1,000 times on my site before I get paid?

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    In this online age, being a copywriter is fast becoming a viable means of earning an income, sometimes even from the comfort of your own home. It is one of the few industries today where further education (usually a tertiary qualification, such as a degree in journalism or marketing) is not the be all and end all of being hired as a copywriter, although it can be handy. More importantly however, is being a capable and creative writer; one who can demonstrate ability and the right attitude to prospective employers. Below are a few basic but helpful tips for any burgeoning copywriters out there.

    Anyone who's read any of my recent posts will know that my focus on the moment is optimising my site and doing all I can to improve my ranking with the search engines. It's something I, mistakenly, didn't put as a priority when I first started and now I'm feeling the effects of that. But we live and learn and I'm happy to say I'm learning pretty darn quickly at the moment! Anyway I've got someone writing a series of blogs for me which are going to help with having regularly updated content, and I've been doing a bit of research on how to boost the ranking if they're just uploaded to my regular Wordpress site. I feel like I've wasted quite a lot of crucial time with this so I'm going hell for leather on it now.
