Article Internet Marketing Strategy

Using an article internet marketing strategy is a time-tested method of generating traffic to websites. It's been used since the early days of the internet and it's still just as effective.

Once you submit articles, a successful marketing campaign will bring you a flood of valuable links and a steady stream of visitors for years to come. Once these articles are out in the open they continue to work for a long time (note to legal: Can I say "forever?").

How does article marketing work?

Put simply, you write original articles for other websites in exchange for a link back to your own site. You should use articles that are different than the ones already posted to your own website because you don't want to be hit with Google's duplication penalty.

The more unique, high-quality articles you can share the better. You'll get more backlinks and traffic, and you'll build your reputation as an expert in your niche. It is very possible that other websites may start seeking you out for your opinion or for interviews. Are you ready for stardom?

How do I start my article marketing campaign?

First, write some articles of around 300 to 600 words. Don't write ads in disguise. Offer genuinely useful information and tips. Don't have time to write, you can find and hire writers at sites like elance.com.

You wouldn't want to publish someone else's garbage on your site, so don't expect them to publish your leftovers. Write articles specifically for your article internet marketing. You should also do the same keyword research you would do for your own website. Also spend some time proofreading for typos and grammatical errors.

You have the articles. Now what?

The next step is to find places to submit articles. Building personal relationships with other webmasters in your niche can be great, but it's very time intensive.

Luckily for you and I, there are many article directories which let you to post your articles for free. Other websites can then publish your articles on their own sites.

There are literally thousands of such sites to choose from, but here is a short list of some of the most popular article directories:

Save hours and hours of time by using a distribution service like iSnare, which will distribute your article to many different directories for a small fee. I found them while researching this page and joined up after checking out the Warrior forum, a forum for internet marketers. They had great things to say about them and their prices range from around $2 per submission down to around $1.00 per article if you prepay $50. If you think you want to start working on your article internet marketing strategy, you should check these guys out. Of course, these terms and prices are subject to change at any moment.

Important tip - Your author bio is extremely important to the success of your article internet marketing strategy. You really need to spend some time creating the perfect message that tells readers who you are, but more importantly, why they should visit your web site if they want to know more.

You should keep it short and punchy, but always include the following:

1. Your name

2. Your url as http://yourdomain.com (this ensures your link will be clickable.

3. A short teaser that entices readers to visit your site. It is a good idea to offer a free report or something else of value to get them to click on your link.

You are now on your way to implementing your article internet marketing strategy. Good luck!
