Are You Using An Article Marketing Strategy Or Just Writing For The Sake of Writing
Many people writing articles today, thinking they are article marketing, don’t realize they’re really just writing articles and are missing out on the income they could be gaining by learning a good article marketing strategy.
Check Wikipedia.org on Article marketing because they say that article marketing is a form of Advertising. True article marketing efforts will involve marketing strategies.
Learn Article Marketing Strategies That Work
The first thing a knowledgeable article marketer does is research his/her marketing/niche/sub-niche so they use relevant keywords when writing articles. Teresa Griffith’s article points out the importance of having an article marketing strategy.
A good article marketer knows how valuable proper research is. They realize they need to know each niche they plan to market to which takes researching. One of my strategies is to stick with markets and niches I have on my interest or hobby list.
The reason I stay within niches I know and love is because I know the niches. I also know a lot of the terminology in my niches. The fact I love the niches I work helps me to stay focused and to go much longer writing articles than those who don’t love their niche.
Know Your Niche And Know Your Competition
Now knowing your niche is great but you if your goal is to make money from others in the niche you need to know what your competition is doing. To know this you need to check out, very closely, the top ten and maybe even the top twenty to see what they are doing that you can do as well.
Use The Right Tools For The Job
You can buy software like Keyword Elite 2 like I did or you can use Google’s Free Keyword Tool both give you great keywords. The reason I bought KE2 was because it also shows me the top ten sites for each keyword I want. On the other hand with the Google Free Keyword Tool you will find the keywords but you will have to manually checkout each of the top sites. I always recommend you research, at the least, the top ten sites for each and every keyword you look at because it is your best chance at beating them at their own game.
Once you learn what they do you do the same but just take it one step further and you’ll start gaining on them and eventually passing them. The goal for successful article marketers is to find keywords they can gain #1 positioning for in the top search engines.
Using The Best Spinner To Create More Articles
I don’t write just write a single article for each keyword, I also use The Best Spinner to rewrite those articles so I can publish them on other blogs I own as well as to the top article directories.
Now the key to winning articles using The Best Spinner is to NEVER use the auto rewrite feature. It does take a little longer to get the job done when you pick each word replacement manually but because I have access to the TBS synonyms database I just need to point and click the word and phrase replacements that work and stay relevant.
The resulting articles are ready for the search engines to feed on but most importantly your article feeds your visitors as well and they are the ones you want staying on your page, all the way to the click that makes you money.
Articles that are spun using auto features usually read like a robot wrote them which may be fine for article directories and might get you some traffic but they are not right for your site content as you will have visitors leaving seconds after they start reading.
