Please help with articles?

Hey warriors,

I have been looking within this site for tips on articles, and have found a few useful bits and pieces but still have some questions (and apologies for probably asking newbie silly questions lol). Could any of you recommend any useful threads or be able to give some info yourself?

Ok, so I'm promoting a site, so thinking that first I should start writing articles for the site itself. Everyone keeps talking about keywords in your articles, do you need to spring for adwords here? Or just do your research to see popular and low competition keywords and sprinkle liberally throughout article, ensuring it is also in title, description etc?

Next steps? After starting some articles on the site, then you start submitting to other directories to create backlinks. Also could create a blog. Any further tips?

Sorry for asking but have been looking through the site for the past several days and though I haven't found exactly what I have been looking for, at least with this site you know you're always going to find something useful!

    You don't need to pay for adwords. Just use free keyword suggestion tool at Free keyword suggestion tool for SEO, Adwords & blogging to get keyword ideas. In your article, make your title include the keyword, and have the keyword also repeat in the body, especially in the first paragraph.

    The best place to submit your articles to EzineArticles Submission - Submit Your Best Quality Original Articles For Massive Exposure, Ezine Publishers Get 25 Free Article Reprints.

    In your article, drive people to your mailing list signup form, so you build your list. That's the part that most people mess up - they promote sales letters or affiliate links. The only thing you need to promote is your mailing list signup page... and THEN you promote your sales letters and affiliate links to your mailing list subscribers.

    To help you write articles, I have a streamlined system called "30 Minute Article Writing System" that shows how anybody can churn out an article in EXACTLY 30 minutes. See How To Write Articles In 30 Minutes

    Good luck!

  • Thanks Melanie, your info is helpful. Would like to point out that this is a little different to the marketing I usually do as it is an offline business that is being promoted. Therefore, the sign up page thing will not particularly work, the usual marketing formula needs to be tweaked slightly. Will still be creating a mailing list with a vip member area with special offer opt in, sending newsletters with latest news, promotions, helpful tips etc, but this will be on the front page of the site and this is not what I'm looking to promote directly with the articles. Instead, will be writing articles on keywords for particular areas that this business is looking for more activity in, for example- this business is a hairdressing business and thus one area is hair extensions- in the news there has been some fuss over damage caused by extensions and I have found evidence from experts that the main cause of this is not being maintained by a salon and not being properly cared for. There's a few articles right there to be put on the site and then duplicated (though changed slightly for unique content) on other sites, create video on youtube etc. Do you see what I mean? I'm looking to create backlinks and to make the site list better for certain keywords at this stage, although anything further or helpful I'm definitely interested in.

    Even for offline business like a hair salon, it would make sense to capture visitor's e-mails. Offer a free report along the lines of "Latest Hairstyle Trends" or "How To Duplicate The Hairstyles Of Movie Stars" in exchange for e-mail address. Make it PROMINENT on every page of the site - otherwise most visitors will be lost and never come back. Once the e-mails are captured, the hair salon can be e-mailing the hair tips and COUPONS to the people to encourage them to get their hair cut at this salon.
