Article marketing is one of the most powerful and effective means of advertising and of generating income available to businesses and individuals – and the best part of it is that it’s completely free. It relies more on a barter system than on buying airtime or ad space. You give something – free helpful information -and you get something – links to your website and the increased traffic that comes from it.

The more articles you write, the more likely you are to get people to come to your website. But knowing that quantity often leads to success can make it difficult to think of something to write in the first place. Consider this, though: there are two reasons to write articles for article marketing. One is to offer help and expertise; it’s in your head, and you can share it with others. The other is to advertise your business or skills.

Article marketing

Therefore, your business or skills are the place to begin. Here are some ways to start with article writing.

* What do you do? Consider beginning by explaining what you do. Are you a political blogger, an accountant, or an interior designer? Do you sell makeup, luxury pet accessories, or herbal supplements? Explain the business as though your audience had never heard of such a thing before – not to dumb it down, but to cover the basics.

* How did you get into it? This is material for “How to become a _____” article. If you find this business interesting, someone else might also find it interesting, and they are likely to go to your site to learn more about your business.

* Why would someone need your goods or services? If you offer accounting services, you can write an article about why someone would need an accountant, or how to know when it’s time to call an accountant. You can do that with any goods or services, because of course, you know why someone needs you.

* How many different things do you offer? Every single item, opinion, or service can provide its own article. If you are an interior designer, you might do color analysis, carpentry, and window hangings, and there you have three articles.

Remember, article marketing is about marketing yourself, and you have a lot to offer.
