Article Writing for Article Submission
Article writing is generally an easy task, and a lot has been written on how to write an article. But what about submitting your article? To gain maximum impact from your articles, you really need to get good at submitting them to the various online article directories.
Here is how to do it:
To submit your article to multiple article directories, go online and search the term “article directories" to find current lists of directories. Once you find the list, you can begin signing up with each one. Nearly all the article directories require you to have an author account, so you will have to manually create an account with each directory. Most of them will require a confirmation email, so what I find easiest to do when I am signing up to many new directories at a time is to do it assembly line style. I will fill out their online forms, one at a time. Then, once I have done that, I will check my email and there will be a confirmation email from each one. I will click through each of the links in the confirmation emails. Next, I will go back to each directory and submit my article. This is really the easiest way to automate the process of article submission. I do not recommend using automatic submitters – I have tried that before and have not had much success in terms of results.
After a few days, I will begin to notice traffic from my articles. The traffic tends to come in spurts, as the biggest traffic you will receive will be after an ezine or online newsletter publishes one of your articles in their newsletter, mailing, or web site. But the direct traffic from the directories is also impressive.
Article marketing is not something you can do just once and see results, typically, and certainly not in any kind of long-term nature. Just like any other form of traffic generation you do, you need to consistently get new visitors to your pages everyday. With article marketing, that means writing an article and sending it out to article directories every day. It is time-consuming, but it produces some of the best qualified leads, and at a low cost-only your time. If you are just getting started, this is one of the best ways to utilize your time. You simply need to write articles and submit articles on a daily basis, to have the best results.
