Pen Names?

by Texas Belle 6 replies
Do we need to have pen names for Ezine Article Marketing? If so, why is that? I noticed many WF users have used pen names.

On other hand, do you give out your real name on websites? I guess I am afraid some crazed stalkers will be able to look up our names and address.

    It really depends on your business model as well as your own preferences. I use well over a dozen pen names for different niches. Stalkers? It's par for the course....especially if your stuff is really good. You're going to get stalkers. No 2 ways about it.

    This is entirely up to you.

    I have my pen names in different niches. =)

    I have friends with different pen names in different niches too. One even has a female pen name so he can reach the lady golfer niche.

    Cheers,
    John

        I use pen names in different niches too.

        It makes it easy to track results as well if all your articles from one niche are under a single name. Plus, I don't think my own name is very interesting :p

          Hi

          I use pen names as well.

          You don't need multi-accounts on ezine articles.

          When you log in go to Profile Manager and on the drop down menu choose 'Edit author names'. You'll get all the info you need there.

          Just click on 'Add an alternate author name' and follow instructions.

          Best wishes

          Mary

    When I first got into this I was the same as you. I didn't want to reveal my real name or have photo's of myself or anything.

    But I learned that it's not that big of a deal.

    But still it is entirely up to you, what ever you feel comfortable with.
