Benefits Of Article Marketing

In the real world, advertising is synonymous with more expenses for the business enterprise. TV spots, print ads, promotional campaignsÖ companies will have to spend just to get their business message to as many people as possible. Thankfully, online ventures are not beholden to such a rule. The World Wide Web provides so many channels wherein marketing campaigns can be launched without having to type in your credit card details. Amazing, isnít it?

This is the reason why Internet marketing has blossomed to what it is today. It is very accessible to many people, as steep financial investments are more of the exceptions rather than the general rule. Indeed, there are many avenues on the Internet that would allow a business with an online presence to advertise its offerings.

One of these amazing avenues, and quite possibly, the most cost-efficient and powerful of them all, is article marketing.

By its very label alone, you would immediately get the idea that it has something to do with writing articles. This is correct. You see, by writing articles about the subject matter relevant to our business, and by distributing the same to the many channels in the World Wide Web, we will be able to reach so many people and each of them would regard us as experts in the field.

Still confused as to how article marketing works? Here is a step-by-step guide that would teach you the ins and outs of this fantastic marketing strategy:

Write a premium, highly informative 300 to 1,200 word article about the subject of your business. If your business, for example, is concerned with dog care, you could write an article about proper dog grooming.

Include a resource box at the end of your article. Your resource box is a concise summary of who you are, what youíre about, and could also have a link to your website.

Submit your article to the many article directories that can be found on the web.

Every time a person gets to read your article as displayed in the article directories, the link to your website would be exposed and there is a higher likelihood of gaining more unique visitors for your web pages. These article directories are seen by millions of people each and every day, as they are easily indexed by the search engines.

The philosophy behind article marketing is a tactic popularly referred to as back linking. Since getting indexed in the search engines is quite a difficult chore, and often, the results would take months before they could bear fruit, a lot of Internet marketers have resorted to back links to get a piece of the search engine pie.

Back links are links to your website which you manage to display in other sites that have a high Page Rank (PR) in the search engines. Itís almost tantamount to piggybacking your way to instant online prominence.

There are so many benefits that can be derived from article marketing. Do consider the following:

If you could write your own article, itís a free marketing vehicle.

If you canít write your own article, or if you simply donít have the time to prepare a piece, you could always hire a ghostwriter to write one for you. The going rate for a standard 500 word article is 3 to 10 dollars.

Including your link in the resource box would make it visible to the many people who would get to read your article. This could potentially equate to an equal amount of new traffic for your site.

There is always a chance that your article would get picked up by an electronic newsletter, called an eZine, and this would expose your link to new audiences which could also result in new traffic for your web pages.

There is also a chance that your article would get picked up by a printed publication, and the readership of the same would get to know the products or services which your business offers.

By writing a highly informative piece, youíll be able to brand yourself as an expert in the field in the eyes of your readers. Theyíll get to trust you with their needs, whenever they would arise. This is pre-selling at its finest!

With all that is going for article marketing, there should be no questions as to why it is heralded as one of the most potent marketing strategies today. Try it out and elevate your advertising campaign to the next level, all without spending a single cent at that.
