Default Online Article Marketing Brings Customers To You

Why you should market with your articles.

"Online article marketing is a much more unique approach. Begin by choosing any subject that has something to do with what your company does or sells, and write a short article about it. Better yet, create an informational article that will appeal to people who are in your target market."

Default RE: Online article marketing brings customers to you

Linda,
Can this be done in both blog form and/or ezine article writing? I have a blog set up and running. I post my blog thoughts specifically related to the product sold in my primary business. I've been leery about ezine article writing because I do not feel comfortable enough publishing articles related directly to online marketing. Could ezine article publishing be a way for me to also articulate my thoughts regarding the product in my business, (it relates directly to personal development, that which I am very comfortable with)? I know that ezine article writing is a good way to promote your business, provided that the subject matter itself is well-written.
Thank you for your thoughts!

Linda,
Thank you! I clicked on the link in your reply and read the article. It provided all of the info. that I was seeking. I'm definitely going to try it. A highly successful member in my primary business endorses online article publishing as a way to promote your business and find good leads within your niche!
Thanks again!

Hi Jeff, I consider article marketing to be somewhat similar to blogging, although they are a bit different obviously. I recommend article marketing primarily for those that don't have the ability to write frequently/consistently. Outside of that an article distributed on the 'net is typically going to reach different distribution versus a blog - but based on my experiences the audiences are similar/crossover.

Jeff,

I really like article writing. For one thing, it means you write only when you have the time...

For another thing, if you do a good article, I've found that your piece may get picked up by other high trust sites. I know I'm a little unusual perhaps in this because I can lay out my writing credentials and business credentials in the article bio... but I've had articles picked up my CPA web sites, business magazines and so on. Bottomline: Sometimes, maybe regularly, you get some really nice links.

I would say that the trick is to write good articles...
