Writing articles as a method to brand your business is just one step in attracting potential prospects to your site. Marketing your articles is equally important as writing. Content is king but you also need to promote it to generate traffic. Here are 4 easy tips to market your articles that will generate traffic to your blog or site and it’s free.
#1 Submit your articles to EzineArticles or any other top ranked directories. Start with one directory first then submit to additional directories.
These article directories are visited by thousands and millions of visitors per day. Imagine the number of people that are searching and finding your article.
Be sure to keep your topic relevant for your target market. And aim for quality content. The more relevant your content is the more likely someone will want to find out more about your business.
#2 Submit your articles to social networks such as your Facebook profile, page, Twitter, LinkedIn, Ning, and so forth. There are many online places to submit your articles.
Most of it can be done automatically for you by installing an RSS feed for your blog. For Twitter, you can install a Twitterfeed that automatically feeds your blog to Twitter.
Another benefit to Twitter is that it shows up in real-time search on Google. Which means people that are in our social network will see your Twitter updates.
This is a great opportunity for your brand to be visible online. And the more visible you are the more opportunities for others to find and connect with you.
Building your direct sales business online is all about making that initial point of contact. Article writing and marketing your articles online is an effective strategy to get in front of a large audience.
#3 Find blogs in your direct sales business and participate actively on those blogs by leaving valuable comments. Spend the extra few minutes and add to the post.
Do more than leaving a “great post” comment. You want your comments to be helpful and curious enough for others to visit your blog.
If you’re new to blogging and article writing, set aside at least 30 minutes each day to commenting and syndicating other blogs. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll see traffic coming back to your site. It’s a win-win strategy!
#4 Installed Google Analytics on your blog, if you haven’t. It’s a free service that allows you to track your marketing efforts.
You want to know where the traffic is coming from, what’s working and what’s not, so you can tweak and modify your marketing strategies.
