Niche Marketing: The Power Of Articles
If you haven't considered the power of articles as part of your niche marketing strategy, then you should.
Articles are a great way to drive targeted traffic to your web site, no matter what your niche market may be.
When you provide good information that people want and can use, your reputation and credibility will increase exponentially, making your site visitors more likely to buy your products and services or those you recommend to them.
We've all heard the mantra "Content Is King". Based on that premise there is nothing more versatile than using keyword rich articles to :
* Boost your search engine ranking
* Increase your daily visitor count
* Provide viral marketing opportunities
* Attract unlimited prospective customers
* Build a trusting relationship with your customers and subscribers
* Establish yourself as an expert in your niche market
Here's some of the things you can do with the articles you write :
* Post keyword rich articles and content on your web-site for better search engine placement.
* Compile a number of them into an ebook related to your niche and sell it.
* Use them in the form of "special reports" and "manuals" with your product and affiliate links embedded in them, which you can offer as free gifts for your visitors, subscribers and customers and bonuses for your products and services.
* Create multi-part email training courses to build that all important mailing list.
* Set up your own Ezine and use them for content to establish your bona fides with your subscribers and customers.
* Allow your visitors to use them, with your "resource box" attached, in their free ebooks which they can then distribute to their visitors, subscribers and customers.
* Submit them to "content hungry" web sites and newsletter publishers, with your "resource box" attached, to generate more visitors to your web site from their lists.
* Submit them to Article Directories, which rank highly on the search engines to provide inbound links to your niche web site.
* Monetise them on your web site with keyword-related, context ads. like Google Adsense, Affiliate Power Ads. or TrafficShowcase.
* Contact offline print publications and offer them your articles - some of them pay for this sort of copy so you could make some extra income and establish yourself in a new niche as a freelance writer.
I think you'll agree that there aren't many forms of promotion with this level of versatility. And the great thing about the strategy is - it's free! All it takes is time.
With the cost of paid advertising spiralling ever upwards, can you ignore the power and versatility of using articles as a major part of your niche marketing strategy?

Finding Time To Write

Articles That Sizzle - Top Ten Topics
There's one key rule that every writer should understand before sitting down to write an article and that's "know your audience".
SEO Article Writing 101
SEO writing is very different from content writing, article writing, story writing and news writing. When I first realized my innate talent for writing stuff and putting thoughts into words, I was still reading Mills and Boons, and it was during this time that my romance storybooks were confiscated by my classroom teacher because I was reading in class.

Reprint Articles Hijacked by Text Link Ads - Great for Authors!
We all know that online publishers earn revenue from our free reprint articles. They place pay-per-click ads on the web page that contains the article, and the advertiser pays them whenever someone clicks on the ad. Most use programs like Google AdSense which automatically identify the subject of the article and deliver an ad related to that subject.

Resource Box Rules: Winning Tactics
Lets face it people use articles to send traffic to their websites. But if their resource box is lousy and not worded right they will get minimal, if any traffic. Thats a fact. "So," you ask, "what kind of resource box do I need?" You need a resource box that is attention grabbing, heart stopping, world jolting.... Okay, so maybe thats a wee bit of an exaggeration! What you really need is a resource box that is short and snappy that asks or tells your prospective customer to take action. You shouldn't make your resource box (also called an Author's Bio, About The Author, etc...) very long. You don't want to bore your reader with all the details of your writing career. Sorry to sound so harsh but on the internet people want to be entertained and enlightened. They will only read what interests them. If your article is informative and page scrolling (as opposed to page turning) then you will get a lot of people to read it, but if you lose them at the start or halfway through your resource box, you won't be able to convert them into traffic or buyers. Why?? Simply because they will never reach any link you provide them with, they will close the page and go on to read a different article. You can't afford to let this happen! So here's what you do about it. You keep your resource box at a maximum of 5 lines long. You tell them to visit your site for more information on that subject or to opt in for their free newsletter or report. You give them an action to take. Because as surely as you aren't specific about what it is that you want them to do next, they definitely won't do what you want them to. So unless your resource box grabs them with the same intensity as your article you can kiss those prospective buyers goodbye! Another common mistake made by newbie writers is to not make their website link an active one. This can happen when you just type www.mysite.com, instead of putting http://www.mysite.com, or whatever the full address is. In most cases people are not going to bother to take the time to copy and paste an inactive link to visit your site. So again make sure as much as you can that your link is working. It's true that some article databases don't provide this feature, but the majority of the article databases do. Try going to the article site you posted your article on, as a browser instead of logging into your writer's account. Find your article and test the link in your resource box to see if it works. In conclusion I guess the best way to show you what I mean is to give an example. So be sure to read my resource box below ;-)
