Blogging A-Z - A for Article Marketing


If you are looking to find new readers and increase traffic to your blog, you should try article marketing.  I know a lot of people claim article marketing is dead, but I have great results with it. What is Article Marketing?

Article marketing is when you write an article and then submit it to various article directories on the Internet.

Article directories are depository for publishers to find free articles for use on their websites, blogs, newsletter, e-zines, etc.  The catch is that they have to use the article as is and they must include the author bio and links.  Once you submit your article to directories, publishers find it and publish it on their sites while linking to you.  Not only do you get the link back to your blog, but hopefully traffic from it too.

I have been using article marketing as my primary method of marketing for Christian Mom PLR.  While my numbers don"t double or triple, I do see a study rise in traffic and sales.

Article marketing can also be used to brand yourself as an expert on a topic.  The more you write and publish on a certain topic, the more people will see you as an expert.

Here are a few article directories I'm familiar with:

There are tons of them out there. A quick Google search for Article Directories and the first resource mentioned is a site that lists the top 50 article directory sites. (If you choose to use any of them, be sure to check them out first and make sure you follow their rules.)

Have you ever tired article marketing?  If not, what"s stopping you?
