Have you ever thought how a simple article has
gigantic capability to boost your marketing effort? For certain, this fact is constantly ignored by most marketers, assuming articles are nothing except as tool to highlight specific content for public
viewing and better be left for public to judge. Not more than that. However, if you spend your time, judging from another point of view, you will soon realize that an article represent your form of business,
in a preliminary way.
An article contains uncounted valuable information either on general topics that we read daily in our local newspapers, but not to forget some articles are directed to specific
readers. What I am saying is articles which contain specific information related to health, fitness, properties, religious etc. These forms of topic basically have their own readers that share the same
interest, wishing to expand their knowledge further pertaining particular issues. These are called your targeted clients – in form of global clients.
You as an individual, tend to psychologically
write articles related to your interest. A farmer won't argue among themselves on issues related to medical instruments and/or a mechanic won't be interested to read on how to sell a digital products.
Articles written by you natively will have direct correlation with your business nature and more precisely, what contains in your web sites. The same concept applies to those readers. Whoever reads your
articles are those who interested to know more about the topic highlighted by you. Fortunately, most of these readers will become your qualified targeted visitors who will register for your newsletter, and
more importantly, buying your products.
So, how can a piece of article able to help you market your business further? Generally, you won't produce articles just to be part of your web contents or
even worst, part of your portfolio. However, you tend to disseminate it to as many readers as possible. The fastest and most effective method of reaching these potential readers is by submitting your
articles to directories! Since most directories don't impose a single dime on you, your articles can form your content as virtual brochure. And, what does it means? Free advertising, of course! By publishing
your articles, these are the great benefit you, as webmaster will achieve in return:
- Getting more qualified visitors.
- Better exposure towards your web site.
- Increase search engines popularity.
- Increase your reputation not only as an author, but also as webmaster.
Do you know that your qualified visitors tend to visit your web sites after they
have partially and/or fully read your articles? This is due to the nature of human themselves, more influenced by words rather than pictures. Present your most valuable information in the way they want it.
Sooner or later, they are one of your regular customers.
So, you provide the readers with the most useful, fascinated contents but how they are going to visit your web sites? Include your web address
at the bottom of your articles to enable them finding your web site shall they wish to learn more on your products or services. By not inserting your web address is the biggest mistake made by any author.
"Oh, I heard this fact somewhere but it's all rubbish!" Well, not really. To prove this fact, you may have a sit and take a piece of paper. Start writing an article pertaining something unique,
valuable and precious related to your business. Include your web address as well and you shall watch how it helps you. You will be surprise that not only you are getting more visitors but the search engines

page of your article. The URL will eventually produced 'one way links' to your web site – one of the most crucial factor of getting your link popular among search engines, especially Google. By globally
