    Hi,

    I'm working on local businesses and trying to write articles.

    The problem I see is that local businesses expect me to write about their own company (history, achievements, services... etc.).

    e.g. "XYZinc was founded in 1947. Our services include: blah blah blah"

    What article directories accept that type of content? (promotional content)

    How do you write for you local businesses? so other article directories accept the content, without falling into poor quality information.

    Your tips are very much appreciated.

    :)

    It sounds to me that they need a press release.

    Hire someone from Fiverr to do it :)

    Write unique content about their niche for article directories. Save that company information stuff for their own website.

    If you really want to look good at what you do than write articles that promote their expertise. Every business solves a problem or offers a service that delivers benefits. Write about those things and they continue hiring your services.
