Article writing and submission creates some of the most targeted, qualified leads on the internet. Sure, they are hard work, and sure, they take time, but I would rather take the time and get good leads, than pay good money for bad leads.
Why do you write and publish articles? If you are like me, you are writing them because you know they generate traffic. But they only generate traffic if the reader clicks on your link. Because the traffic to your article is not what is important, what is important is how many people click on your link.
But one thing that is important when you are writing articles for traffic generation is that you keep that in mind – you have to know your purpose and then write to your purpose.
So how do you do it?
1) You must write on a topic that is relevant both to your reader and to the demographic of the web site to which you are generating clicks. You see, one of the mistakes in article writing is when you write a great article that stimulates clicks, but when the reader gets to the web site, it has nothing to do with the topic of the article. The article should be for the purpose of getting qualified traffic to YOUR web site and generating interest in what is at that web site.
2) Keep your articles simple – a long, windy article that never really gets to the point is not going to create clicks – people have to feel that they have received value from you in the article, if they are going to click through to learn more.
3) Become an expert at writing bio: I don’t just use my name and my accomplishments – nobody cares about my accomplishments, all they care about is that I can help them. Offer them something free – then tell them to click here to download it.
