Do you remember 5 years ago when article marketing was the best way to get traffic to a site/offer? Most people who are new to internet marketing don’t remember the good days of article marketing; however, I remember it quite well.
After talking with a few people this past weekend I started to realize that almost all of them didn’t think article marketing traffic still converted. This got me to think, “Does it convert”?
“Yes”, article marketing still converts and converts well, but only if it is done right. Where most people fail at article marketing is they are not placing their articles on sites that get read much, they are not writing about a related topic, and they don’t bother linking to their site with an appropriate link. This is why I want to talk to you about article marketing and how you can get more out of it.
Just know that article marketing is something that many people are still doing and because of that you should know that it still works. The only way to get article marketing traffic to convert is to make sure you stay on top of it and are constantly publishing new articles on article directories, guest blogs, and Web 2.0 sites. Trust me on this one, article marketing traffic will convert much better than you can imagine as long as you write high quality content.
Tips on Getting More Article Marketing Traffic
Write Multiple Articles Per Day – I know that it is more work, but writing multiple articles per day is the only way to get a lot of traffic to your website/offer. A lot of people try to write a bunch of articles to try and get article marketing traffic, but sometimes their article is not exactly what the readers want to see. It is because of this that the multiple articles per day strategy is somewhat like throwing mud at a wall, you hope some of it sticks and the rest falls off in preparation for more later on.
Come Up With Intriguing Headlines – The only reason people click on article titles is because they are interested in what they might be about. For example, why did you click on this article? Did you want to know more about article marketing traffic and whether or not it still converted? Probably, and that is why you need to come up with intriguing headlines as well. Trust me on this one, intriguing headlines will make a difference between getting the article read and it just sitting there doing nothing for you.
Don’t Write Junk Posts – Writing a bunch of posts that nobody wants to read is just going to be a waste of your time, so don’t do it. The problem with writing posts that nobody is going to read is that it won’t do anything for you and many bloggers/article directories won’t even accept them.
Get Articles On Popular Blogs – Do you have a website about blogging? If so, then you need to get your article on Problogger.net. Do you have an article about running an online business? If so, then you need to get your article on Smartpassiveincome.com. The idea behind both of these is to get your articles on very popular blogs so that you can try to convert some of their readers into your own. Do you get where I am going with this?
Article marketing traffic still converts very well, but only if you follow the tips above. What most people don’t realize is that an article here and there will slowly increase the amount of traffic to your website, but multiple articles each day will quickly increase your traffic. So, are you ready to try article marketing the right way?
