How is it that some people seem to have all the article marketing success, while others can’t seem to get any visitors? Is there a secret formula?
Actually, there is! If you can follow these simple steps, article marketing success is just around the corner…
First of all, you have to find a keyword that you feel you can rank for. Head on over to the “Google External Keyword tool” (just Google it, it will pop up first). Experiment with different keywords related to your niche until you can find one that has little competition and a decent amount of monthly searches.
The key here is not to search for the “Holy Grail” of keywords… you’ll drive yourself nuts! Write a lot of articles for a lot of different keywords, and a few of them will be homeruns. I like to use keywords that only get a few hundred or thousand searches a month, because they’re easier to rank for.
Then, once you have your keyword, write a 300-350 word article. Any more, and you lose the attention of your reader.
Use your keyword about 4-5 times. As an example, I use the keyword “article marketing success” for this article, so you can see how to go about writing a relevant, keyword-rich article!
Then, be sure to include your resource box, with one of the links being your keyword. You can send the traffic straight to your capture page, or over to a blog!
Remember to write good, solid content. A lot of the traffic you can get will be from other authors re-posting your content on their blogs, and they won’t do that unless they like what you write.
Then, post your article in a few strategic places that get a lot of traffic. The number one source for you should be ezinearticles.com. It is far and away the most complete and highest rated article directory on the internet.
You can also do a quick Google search and find several other good article directories that you can post on. The more places you post, the more traffic you’ll get (obviously).
Now you can achieve all the article marketing success you want!
