A Few Words About Article Marketing

Ever question how to get a virtual flood of FREE traffic to your websites? Yeah, me too! Then I discovered article marketing, and have never paid a solitary cent for website traffic since! Let me give you more details…

What is Article Marketing?

Article Marketing is the fine art of writing and distributing articles in an attempt to make people to click on the link to your website, blog, or affiliate page at the finish of your article.

So How Do You Write Wonderful Money Making Articles?

The first rule for writing profit making articles is to give value to the reader! If you do not do this then nothing else you do matters, and article marketing will deliver zero results for you. Some of the greatest value oriented articles that I have ran across explain a topic, answer a question, or explain a drawback for the reader. Regardless of your article format though, you want to make sure that you stand out by providing Magnificent information.

The number two rule for writing articles is to never promote anything in the body of the article. This really goes with rule number one, but I thought I would make it it’s own rule to really drive home the point. Folks do not desire to be “sold” anything when reading an article. The goal of the article is to educate. You do the advertising on your site once they click through at the end of your article. Anyway, if you do try to promote anything in the body of the article most directories will decline to publish the article anyhow.

In addition to following the two rules of article marketing mentioned earlier, the following steps will make your article much more readable and enjoyable for the reader.

  • Break up your text – NeverĀ  have a paragraph that is longer than 5 sentences. Especially at the beginning of the article. For the most part people are lazy and will see lengthy paragraphs as a lot of effort. Do not snicker, I’m serious. If you break up your paragraphs into smaller paragraphs it will help in getting folks to read the article.


  • Create Number & Bulleted Lists – Always, have at least one numbered or bulleted list in your article on something that is valuable. Treat this article as an instance of this. Notice how I am breaking up my text and giving the chief points as bullets? Very useful idea whether your writing an article or blog post.


  • Have Various Sub-Headings – This again accomplishes two things. To begin with, it makes the article give the impression of being more readable. Second, if somebody is reading your article to discover one precise piece of information sub-headings will help them find this information faster. The reader will appreciate this and then might click through to your site for extra information.

Follow the two rules listed earlier and design your article well and you will be in front of 99% of marketers out there. Let’s urge you over the top though, and give you an crazy advantage. What I am about to share with you is one of my top tricks…….

How To Arrange Your Authors Bio Box

When writing your “Author’s Bio Box” or “Signature”, include a signature that looks to be a natural addition of the article itself. Here is what I mean:

Instead of writing an author’s signature like this (a lot do in this way):
