If you want to create an internet business that is not only profitable now but creates a long term income stream you need to provide valuable content.
A big part of that valuable content will be articles, both on your site, on other people's sites, and on article directories like EzineArticles.com.
When you create valuable content in the form of articles you will:
1. Generate traffic via free organic search
The more articles you write the more chances you have to get rankings and generate free traffic from search engines.
2. Generate quality one way links from other web sites
By writing quality articles, you will get other sites to either link to the article on your site or place the article on their site with a link back to your site. This will create links that will improve your search engine rankings, as well as get you direct traffic from those links.
3. Build An Optin List
Writing quality articles will encourage interested readers to optin to your list for more information like what they found in your articles.
4. Repeat Visitors
A lot of people talk about unique visitors to a web site. Obviously, unique visitors are important.
However, once you get a good level of unique visitors then repeat visitors becomes a good measure of how effective your web site content (your articles) is as far as engaging your readers, getting them to optin, and eventually purchase something from you.
Quality articles will encourage repeat visitors.
5. Joint Venture Opportunities
By writing quality articles, you will get your name out there in your niche, which can possibly lead to joint venture possibilities with others in your niche. I've experienced this myself.
By creating quality articles , resulting in the five things above, you will ultimately be able to increase the profits of your internet business.
