    Hey everyone,

    Here's a few article marketing tips that I've already
    shared with my lists and though I'd give everyone
    a hand that's still struggling to make their articles work
    for them.

    If you ask me, I would have never believed two
    years ago that some tiny simply articles would
    help me drive my online business through the
    roof top even though I don't have an English degree
    or anything of that sort.

    If you haven't implemented article marketing
    into your campaigns yet, you're seriously leaving
    some money on the table, believe me!

    Some fellows use to write a few articles, get nothing
    in return and unfortunately give up. Article marketing isn't
    rocket science you just need to know a few things
    and only then start scaling up the process.

    It's a number's game folks ! The more you write the
    more sales and leads you'll generate

    Here are the most powerful article marketing tips that
    you must apply to all the articles that you publish online.

    1. Quality information. Let's be honest, most articles
    that you come across are junk and the sad truth is that
    they will not convert into a sale, they're simply useless.
    People are looking for quality information to solve their
    problems. Do not "SELL" in your articles but "PRESELL".
    Give your readers "some" information in the article, send
    them to your landing page and let the vendor do the
    selling part.

    2. Keep your articles short and simple so that they're easy
    to read. Writing for the web is different than writing
    for off-line publications. Keep your writing brief and write in
    short paragraphs. Never get too technical in your articles, that
    might make your readers get bored quickly.

    Be concise. Get personal with your readers and
    only give them the information they want. Firstly You have to
    do your keyword research first to get to know your market
    better.

    3. Catchy titles. There's no secret behind it, here's an example of
    a catchy title --

    Amazing Tips to Get Your Ex Back Fast - Proven Methods to Get Your Lover Back Into Your Arms Guaranteed (Within 3 Days)

    Always use words such as guaranteed, proven, amazing, unique etc..

    4. Never put all eggs in one basket. You'll have to distribute
    your articles to more than one article directory. I always
    submit mine to roughly 12 article directories. Submitting
    your articles to 12 articles directories only means more traffic,
    sales or leads.

    Don't worry about duplicate content, that's just
    a myth. Most of my duplicate articles are constantly sending
    traffic and generating sales

    Here's my killer list:

    http://www.ezinearticles.com/
    http://www.articlesbase.com/
    http://www.goarticles.com/
    http://www.selfgrowth.com/
    http://www.hubpages.com/
    http://www.buzzle.com/
    http://www.prlog.com/
    http://www.articledashboard.com/

    http://www.searchwarp.com/
    http://www.isnare.com/
    http://www.a1articles.com/
    http://www.articlecube.com/

    5. Always publish your articles on your web site -- (That's extra traffic).

    6. Always use RSS Feeds To Syndicate Your Articles to all interested parties. Find a list of the top RSS directories and submit your feed every time you publish new articles.

    7. Creating an ebook. If your articles are good enough, use them to create and ebook and give it away to your readers on your blog or use it as a freebie on your squeeze pages.

    Happy writing -- go for it !

    Thanks a lot. I too have given up on article marketing after writing a few articles, I thought it was useless. Now I am going to start to start a article marketing campaign.

    Great posting!
    Or traffic. I've always looked at article marketing like politics, "garbage in and garbage out", meaning if you publish crappy articles you will get crappy results.

    Forget the backlink value of article marketing, that's just a bonus, the real value of articles is in reaching 3 groups of people with your actual article, and impressing them so that they'll either follow your call-to-action for more or spread your article out to new audiences for you.

    The first group are organic traffic that finds your published article via search. It's easy to target low and mid-level keywords with a published article on a lot of article directories which can hit the top of the SERPs quickly, so these are easy pickin' if you impress the readers who find your article.

    The second group are lone site or blog owners who don't have the time to create enough original quality content for their visitors so they look to article directories for filler pieces of good quality. These are the people who will republish articles with resource box links intact because they're happy to have the quality content to use. You won't get them to put your article on their site if it isn't good quality, but if you do get picked up by these people they tend to have small but established sites with loyal followings and that's a great way to reach targeted new eyes.

    And the third group are newsletter/ezine publishers. These are the people article directories were made for to get free content for use in their mailings as fillers and it's awesome when you get an article included in someone's newsletter/ezine mailing because it's free access to someone else's highly targeted and cultivated list.

    And once you find site owners or list mailers who use 1 of your articles, you can always approach them directly to offer additional and unique articles for their site or newsletter.

    This is what I do with article marketing all the time and it's gold for me. Not every article will get picked up by a quality site or newsletter owner, I'm guessing about 1 out of every 4 or 5 of mine do, but the thing is it's still worth it when I see the traffic and conversions rates from the ones that do.

    But the thing is, I know for sure that no crappy article will get picked up, so if you're writing those "7 minute articles" or writing based on some WSO article template you're setting your articles up to fail.

    I write mine as if I'm writing for a magazine, but keep it short enough for the web. Don't just give information about a product, tell a story about a person who used the product. Include anecdotes and some flowery language so it looks like a professional writer took the time to do some research and tell a good story that's both informational and entertaining.

    That's what works for me with article marketing, hope it's useful to others.

    I never posted my articles to more than 1 place, but now you're telling me dup content is a myth? Been hearing both sides of the argument, and I really don't know which to believe.

    What I know (at least from my experience) is that Ezine CAN detect dup content, so if I do put it elsewhere, I'll get it up on Ezine 1st before sending it to other article directories.

    prosumer, I don't think dup content is a myth so much as something that really doesn't affect article marketing.

    Basically, my understanding and experience is that when it comes to dup content, what the SE's really don't want are multiple pages on the same site (domain) consisting of basically identical content.

    A quick example could be that you could create a page on your site titled "Serving Tips" and then create another page titled "Tennis Serving Tips" and technically use the same content for both pages, yet be targeting different keyword terms.

    It gets more complex than that, but I think that's the general idea with dup content, the SE's want a lot of uniqueness on every page of a single site or domain.

    When it comes to article marketing, there's no worries with dup content because sure the SE's aren't going to index every instance of your published article, especially if you publish it on a thousand sites, but they won't penalize you or your article either and will index it from EZA or some other higher authority directory.

    The only way you could/should have an issue with dup content in terms of article marketing is if you also publish your articles on your own site. I strongly advise against doing that. Keep your own site pages 100% unique.

    and make sure that the backlinks are do-follow links , while some article directory provides nofollow links only.

    That's it. That's pretty much how it works. Apart from quality article you'll need to do a deep keyword research and write more than one article per keyword.

    TIP. Building links to your articles is vital if you're looking for long term (targeted) traffic from the search engines.

    The last paragraph is NOT true and misleading. That's why most people don't understand what the true meaning of "duplicate content" is. Ezinearticles just releases a plugin for WordPress so that you can submit your articles already published on your website to be published again on EZA. There's also a Q&A on EZA on the plugin and "duplicate content". An editor from EZA wrote that you absolutely can publish your own articles anywhere you want. That's not considered duplicate content at all. If you have the same articles on your website in different pages, that's considered duplicate content. As a matter of fact, the more people/places (re)publish your articles, the better. That'll make your site an authoritative one!

    Go to Ezinearticles and go to blog, and search for the Q&A on the Ezinearticle WordPress Plugin and the Q&A on duplicate content.

    This is a great post. Thanks for sharing. some questions for you.

    1. Do you only use the above article directories posting the same content without spinning? Do you use any article submitter to blast to more article sites? Why?

    2. How do you use anchor texts or the 2-3 links allowed in those article directories? Take Ezinearticles for example, how do you use the Resource box? If you use the anchor text /links pointing back to the same article on your site, will that turn readers away?

    3. Why do you need "submit your feed every time you publish new articles"? I thought you only need to submit the RSS Feed once. You do need to submit to social bookmarking sites every time you publish new articles. Please clarify.

    4. "Keep articles short" - how short? 300 words? 400? 500? One SEO "guru" said that minimum 500-word per article, but he could be wrong.
    How many article have you posted before you see the sales coming in?

    5. Do you know any good article writers out there proving article writing services with good quality and competitive pricing?

    Thanks for the sharing again.

    hyc2010, the "editors" at eZA want more content to fill their site and display ads with, keep that in mind when reading anything they post or say. Their goal is NOT to help others but to get more content for their own pages and ad displays, and they know an article published on their site as well as on some lesser known blog is going to show up in the SERPs from their site first because of eZA's authority, so it doesn't hurt them to tell bloggers and site owners that it's okay to publish your article on your own blog and with eZA.

    But my point is valid, if you do publish the same article on your little known blog and at eZA, guess who will get the better SERPs with the article? It won't be your little blog...so it's pointless to publish articles on article sites and your own site, you're better off keeping the content on your own site 100% unique.

    If other sources of traffic are being utilized then it's perfectly fine to use the same articles already submitted in directories. Why do double the work? And just because EZA might get a better ranking doesn't mean the blog itself isn't getting search engine traffic either.

    If your blog or site is able to rank well for a keyword term, then why would you want to send traffic from that same term to an article directory's advertising filled pages instead of focusing on moving your own page to the #1 spot?

    I guess my perspective is simply that there's enough competition online already without competing with myself for the same traffic to the benefit of article directories.

    But hey, if you're happy at spot #8 while also doing the work to hand the #1 or #2 spot traffic over to eZA or someone else, I won't argue with your methods...that's just not the path I would take.

    I guess I just don't see it as "competing with yourself." If you have 2 spots in rankings, one from an article directory and one from your site, that's going to equal more traffic than if you only had one spot. If a site is ranking well for a KW, then you can work on getting it's rankings up, but this takes time. So until that happens, why not just ride along with EZA's top spot for the time being?
