    well...first go to ezinearticles.com, make an account and submit a article that resumes what your business is about...try to not tell everything so you can make the ppl ho read it wanna go to the website for more info...around 500 words will be good. also use keywords in title and content, try to find your main keyword and use it once in title and 3-4 times in the content of the article....hope i helped

    Hi Michele,

    Focus on the beginning and ending of each article the most:

    1. Write compelling titles for your articles (that gets people to open your articles and read them). A good formula to use is "3 Ways to...." or "5 Tips for..." That kind of thing.

    2. The biggest mistake I see all the time is giving it all away in the article. Instead, think of your article as a teaser. Give people solid information, of course, but leave the ultimate answer (conclusion, solution) on your website. Then be sure to use the closing of your article as a call to action. Tell readers to click your link to get the final piece of the puzzle (or something along those lines).

    If you do both of these things, you will get a lot more article views (readers) and lots of visitors to your site (the real purpose of writing articles, right?).

    Before you begin an article writing campaign, though, I would advise you to make sure your site converts well. There's nothing more frustrating than getting a flow of visitors who do nothing once they get to your site. Shore up your on-site content before you start drawing visitors to it. Seems like common sense, but so many people do it the other way around. Good luck!

    John
