Asking the right questions often reveal hidden thoughts and can make a lot of differences. A few years ago, a radical change happened to my business when I finally asked myself about where was the lowest hanging fruit that I could reach at the moment. I was like all over the place and when I found the focus, things change by leaps and bounds.
In article marketing, the revealing moments happened to me a few times too. Each of them brought my article writing and marketing strategy a bit further. My standpoint changes and I get better results since then.
1. A mix of quality and quantity
Perfection won't get you anywhere in article marketing. Although quality is certainly important, you should also focus on producing articles regularly.
My favorite is to get across one good idea, give the first draft a few minutes of additional attention like checking the spelling and grammatical mistakes, structure and flow of the words, and then submit it. I stopped tweaking everything and focus on the next article after that.
2. When shorter are articles better
Long articles with a lot of content may seem more professional and of higher quality because the person who wrote it may know much about what they're writing about. The length of choice in many industry publications range from 1500-3000 words.
However, 300-600 words are enough for article syndication through directories. People want information and they want it quickly. If you can get across one idea in that short passage, they will appreciate it.
3. The goal you want to reach
Knowing what you want to achieve is one thing that can help a lot in tracking results. If you don't know what you're going to get, how could you know how to go there?
Asking this question is critical so you can work a plan backward to reach results you want.
