How Does Article Marketing Work
By ShaChena Gibbs
It is an actual fact that Article Marketing works for a large number of major brands in wide variety of niches. This has been repeatedly proven. However, those who have not ever attempted article marketing tend to think that it is harder or more time consuming than it actually is.
Starts by writing an article. This can be done by yourself or you can hire a ghost writer. The cost of ghost written articles is usually about $10.00 for a 300 to 500 word article. It is important that the article be informative and related to your niche. The article should not sound like a sales letter.
At the end of the article, you include your ‘resource box.’ A resource box is simply information about the author, and it usually includes a link to the author’s related website, a link to subscribe to a newsletter or give-away, and possibly even an email address to contact the author. If your article is ghost written, you are still the author. You can even include a thumbnail professional photo in most cases.
Underneath the resource box, you type a statement giving others the right to reprint the article for free, as long as they don’t change it and keep your resource box attached. This allows others to help make your article viral.
Once the article is written, you should distribute it to as many article directories as you can find. It helps to also send the article to ezine publishers within your niche for consideration. You can find lists of ezines in the various ezine directories that are available on the Internet.
Submitting the articles yourself is a time consuming task. If you can hire someone else to do that work, you will have more time overall to concentrate your efforts on other marketing tasks, including producing more articles.
