|Reaping The Amazing Benefits Of Writing E-Zine Articles
Marketing on a budget is tough. This is a universal truth that all small
business owners face. The most effective small business frugal marketing
strategy available is writing and submitting articles to web sites, e-
zines, magazines and newsletters. Listed below are some of the amazing
benefits you can gain by using this technique.
1) Article creation and submission is a totally free marketing method!
The only cost is a few hours of your time to write an article and offer
it for publication.
2) Well written articles position the author as an expert while
increasing credibility and educating readers about their business,
services and products. Many internet gurus started their careers by
writing and publishing articles on the internet.
3) Article authors are granted a by-line with each article that will
allow readers to click through to a web site where they can be converted
to e-zine subscribers for paying customers.
4) A good article can be used over and over again when customized for
different audiences thereby reducing the need for you to write new
articles as often.
5) Many publications will archive your article on their web site giving
you a lasting method of promotion.
6) Writing and submitting articles will help you obtain incoming links to
your web site. These are not "link farm" quality links - these are the
highest quality links available and they affect your search engine
7) Your article can be published on your web site, optimized for search
engines and submitted accordingly in order to increase your search engine
The more articles you write and publish on your web site the longer
your visitors will stay and explore your site.
9) You can use your published articles to reach potential affiliates or
joint venture partners who will, in turn, promote your business for you.
10) In addition to promoting your business, services and products you can
write articles to promote your favorite affiliate program to supplement
Even if you have little writing talent you can hire a ghostwriter to
create an effective, informative article using your byline and then you
can use that article to bring in more visitors to your web site, more
subscribers to your newsletter and more paying customers to your business.
The key is understanding that a well-written, entertaining and
informational article is worth more than a paid advertisement in any
publication. As your marketing budget grows you can add emphasis to your
article by purchasing a small e-zine ad in the publication for the same
date your article will be published.
Writing and submitting articles is a free promotion tool, but it does
take time. It will take several hours to submit an article to every
available submission site and it can take six to eight weeks for
publication. However, once your article is published it will create a
long lasting stream of targeted visitors to your site that no other
promotion method can accomplish. With each subsequent submission the
process will be faster and easier.
