Article Marketing Tips and Tricks

The majority of people today think that article marketing worked great a few years ago before Google improved its algorithm. And while the effectiveness has somewhat diminished, there are still ways to get great results if you get creative and can have unique content.


There are many ways to market using articles and while not all methods are good for all sites, and some can do more harm then good. One thing to remember and keep in mind for relatively new sites is that you need to write two different articles if you intend to publish them on your site as well as third party sites. Google won’t necessarily understand you were the original author, especially if your site doesn’t have much trust because it’s new.

The first and one of the most controversial methods is to write an article and then submit it to as many article directories sites as possible across the net. Although this is a very good way to get some low quality anchor text rich links for cheap, it’s not recommended for sites that are less than a year old or have less than a one thousand high quality links

The most popular method amongst marketers on a budget is to submit manually to the top 5 or 10 article directories. Search Google for the term to find out which are most trusted, don’t rely on somebody else’s recommendations. This is a good method for relatively new sites as you won’t build links too quickly and the links you do get will, on average, be more trusted.

When you submit an article to a directory you are normally giving other site owners permission to re-publish the article on their website, as long as the bio (and link) remains in place. The better your article is, the more likely it will be picked up by a good quality site. Remember, it’s also very likely to be listed on a few scraper or MFA sites as well.

One of my favorite methods is to contact site owners and offer to write an article for their website and offer payment for them to publish it. This works pretty good if your client has an affiliate program because the site can earn commission from people who read it and click on your link.

Hopefully your affiliate links are search engine friendly because if not it wont help in terms of link building. Remember that most webmasters are crying out for unique and well-written content so if you are offering to write free of charge they will normally be very happy and won’t charge you anything in return.

For one of my clients we contacted a good number of websites and wrote an eBook guide article related to their niche. Each site published the article free of charge and included an affiliate link at the bottom. As an extension of this, we created copies of the articles branded with the name of each site and a shortened affiliate link for them to use in offline promotion. Some businesses didn’t really do much promotion, but certain ones handed out the ebooks with other orders and generated good commissions.

One of the key ways to get your content on as many other sites as possible is to make it accessible by explaining on your site that you write articles free of charge. List some examples in your archives of some articles for mass distribution so people can easily add them to their sites.

Another major key issue is promotion. If you write a great article and it’s published on a third party website, don’t just sit back, start promoting. Submit it to Digg and Netscape with a cool title,. Then submit it to Stumble upont, add it to your Squidoo or Work.com pages, Basically, always try to promote your content, even if it’s not on your website.
