I have been doing article marketing for about 6 years now and I have had great success. During this time I have ran across a few reasons why I believe so many people fail when it comes to article marketing and I wanted to share them here on the forum. So here we go.
Reason #1 - Your Title Sucks
Your title is your first impression. And as the saying goes, you NEVER get a second chance to make a first impression. Stop focusing so much on keywords and try to focus on grabbing the readers attention and literally making them click on your article.
For example. A bad title would be - "How To Lose Weight Fast" - Its very common and it won't stand out in the crowd.
On the other hand, A good title would be - "How To Lose Weight Fast - 3 Never Before Revealed Secrets About Fast Weight Loss"
This title will grab peoples attention because they think they are about to learn some secret that no one else knows about.
Here's a little piece of advice. Long titles work really well.
Reason #2 - The Content Of Your Article Is Pure Junk
When you write an article, make sure it provides value to the reader. Give them tips and information that they can use right away. When you do that you build credibility and trust all at the same time. This will cause people to want more information from you and they will click through and join your list or do whatever else you ask them to do.
Reason #3 - Your Not Writing Enough Articles
You won't believe how many people I hear say, "I wrote 5 articles and I haven't made not one sale". Listen, article marketing is a numbers game. The more quality content you have out there floating around the internet, the more traffic you will get.
And the more traffic you get the more money you will be able to eventually make.
And there you have it. 3 Reasons Article Marketing Isn't Working For You.
Hope this helps,
Wishing you a very prosperous 2011
