If you are serious about your business you absolutely must consider doing article marketing. Here's why.

Article Marketing is serious business. I mean,Guest Posting if you are serious about your business, you absolutely need to do it. Heres why:

You are just getting yourself online. You have a new site that you paid good money to have built. Your web designer did a great job. You are ready for the world to come to your doorstep what? Nothing happened?

You have people visiting your website, but they dont stay and they certainly dont buy. Why? Could it be that they dont know or trust you?

Writing articles is a guaranteed solution to both of these problems.

Heres the deal: You need to get in front of the people who are looking for you. This is the heart of marketing. You also need to gain some popularity on the internet if you want your website to rank well with the search engines. And you need the people in your target market to think you are smart and worthwhile.

Yep, marketing through articles can do all of that and more. But youd better know: Its not hard, but it is a bit tricky. With a bit of guidance you can become an Article Writing Master in no time!

Here are 7 things you have got to do when writing your articles:

1. Build your articles around keywords that your prospects use to look for you.

2. Use your keywords in the right places and in the right amounts. Too many uses of the same keyword phrase will get you penalized by the search engines.

3. Make it interesting. If you find it boring to write, your prospect will find it boring to read.

4. Not to long, not too short, just right. Dont keep them too long. Be interesting and useful but dont drone on and on and on

5. Make sure your resource box does what its supposed to do. If you write an article about golf and your resource box talks about your site on fitness training, you will not get the response you are looking for.

6. Give your reader an incentive to seek you out. Offer a free special report, mini-course or some other freebie for clicking to your website from your resource box.

7. Leave them wanting more! If you solve the problem in the article your reader will have no need to learn more. Hence, they wont click on the link that leads to your website.

Article marketing has an art to it, there is no doubt. But it can be mastered quickly and easily. Article marketing done routinely, over time will get you in front of people you would never have reached otherwise.
