Article Marketing – Some Tips To Get You Started
If you are just starting out with article marketing, it might seem a little overwhelming. Please, don’t let it intimidate you. Article marketing is pretty much enjoyable and can be very profitable. The trick is to keep it simple, and as long as you do that, you’ll find success come easily.
Below I have written a few tips that will get you started quickly and efficiently.
One of the most important things you would want to do first is choose niche that you would like to write about. You will also need to make sure whatever niche you choose it is well targeted otherwise you won’t get many viewers looking at your article…
The next thing you will want to do is carry out some keyword research for your article. Keywords are very important in your writing because it is what helps viewers finding your articles. You will want to spend as much time as possible on this because you will want to make sure that the keywords you use are well targeted but not over competitive. Google keyword tool is a very good place to start. I find it to be the best tool to use for keyword research.
The next thing you will want to focus on is your title. Some authors forget how important the title of their articles is. Whatever title you choose, you will want to make sure it sticks like a magnet and keyword rich. You must also make sure that the title corresponds with the body of your article.
You will also want to make sure you use keywords in all of your headings. Where ever possible use keywords but don’t ever do it.
It is also important to keep the contents of your article simple. You don’t know who your readers are and if your article is too technical and unreadable the readers you are trying to attract will just bypass your article and move on to someone else.
The most important thing about writing an article is giving the readers what they want. They don’t want to spend time reading about you and how you are doing in your business, they want to know about the product you are writing about and what it can do for them.
If your article paragraphs are too long break them up into sub headings. Long paragraphs make your article look untidy and unreadable. Again use keywords rich subheadings.
Another important aspect you will want to take on board before you start writing your article, is how many words you are going to write. Ezine Articles recommend between 400 and 500 words. You really don’t want to go much above that because some readers are easily put off by large articles.
Well, I hope the above information helps. Please take each bit of information into consideration and built it into your strategy. The more you know, the better your articles will be, and the easier time you’ll have creating and selling them!
