So, let me ask you a simple question, “Are you using article marketing to build your brand or presence online?” Don’t feel bad if you aren’t. Truth be told, using article marketing sites is one of the most underrated online marketing strategies out there right now.
Not sure why…
You can use this strategy to covertly promote products and services (very soft selling tactics, never actually promoting a company or its services upfront) using article directories online.
You see, most of these directories receive a very high-level of website traffic and are considered the authority by major search engines, so the articles rank like “Gang-busters” in search engines and generate a boatload of free traffic which equates to profits and more sales for you.
What you’ll need to do is start submitting your articles to multiple article directories. That’s right, “They won’t submit themselves,” you’ll need to take action if you’re serious about making money online and building your brand using this vehicle.
Just be careful with submitting duplicate content.
Search engines don’t play that.
I say this because most search engines filter duplicate content to prevent the exact same articles from showing up in its searches. But not to worry, you can avoid this issue by modifying articles slightly to keep the content different and increase your chances of snatching up high rankings.
Now, don’t get me wrong, you won’t be able to go “Hog-wild” promoting your company overtly on these type of sites, you’ll still be able to build the credibility and visibility for your company (most article sites have author bio sections that allow you to link to the main site).
Check this out, whenever your content is authored and it’s good stuff, the source can start to become an authority. That’s right, note the word authority in the awesome word authority!
This will also allow you to go to work on some analytics. This is the time to sneak a few keywords or phrases into your article to optimize it to help your readers find you online quicker using the very keywords that you used.
Pretty cool, right?
In fact, if you build your content around the keywords and phrases your target market is searching for, they’ll find your site, and your articles. This will also grow awareness and for you, hopefully some good old conversions.
