Default How To Submit Articles

I have several articles I have written that I have received some good feedback on. I have been searching several industries to manually submit my article one at a time to each site - is that the way to do it? I've seen people here refer to software that submits your article to hundreds of sites. any negative effects of doing that?

so - find online publications in niche industries and submit one at a time, or blast it out with software?

I have a feeling this is one of those quality vs. quantity things...

For content and articles, its definitely a quality versus quantity thing.

It is much more effective looking for your niche markets, since viewership of these articles by the right target will mean there is a higher possibility of attracting business.

You can't go wrong with quality articles that offers something to its readers.

I do not care for the blast software. Sites change too often for them to stay correct for long plus the email lists are harvested. I've ended up on several of those lists and had all these people sending me their articles to publish and I don't even have a newsletter or an article submission site!

It is absolutely quality vs. quantity.

I'm with Karon. I've never used blast software.

I submit my articles through ezinearticles.com They offer a great free service!

Yes, ezinearticles.com is one of thousands of article databases a person can use. That's a site I submit to also.

Instead of going with e-zines, why not get that article published first in a recognized publication...especially if you're looking at establising yourself as an expert?

I think both are great ideas and not mutually exclusive. I've already created an ezinearticles.com account and submitted some articles. Thanks for the great tips, guys!

Yes, it is one of those quality vs. quantity things, so you definitely want to stay away from article blasting software. Speaking of quality, here are a few more quality article directories that you can submit your articles to:

ideamarketers.com

searchwarp.com

goarticles.com

buzzle.com

I submit to all of the above, as well as my own article directory with excellent results.

I regularly use ideamarketers and ezinearticles. Has anybody tried isnare.com? They charge $2 to submit an article to most article syndication sites, and I think it may be worth the time savings. I've seen some people, particularly in the SEO community that use it.
