Years ago until not all that long ago, many things with online marketing were pretty easy to kill and make money. All kinds of forces and pressures contributed to changes, and Google was actually responsible for changing the face of article marketing.
Adaptation is all that is necessary to combat these changes so no worries. Aggressive marketing – this is what will allow us to compensate. In the face of these changes, through our perseverance, we are able to succeed in greater ways than ever before.
Whatever you write should be geared toward what your audience wants to hear. Your audience will probably appreciate throwing a little humor into the topics that you choose. Humor is a great way to break into any audience with any topic. Just make sure it is done in an appropriate manner. You do not want to overdo it and become annoying because you could be mistaken for not taking the subject seriously. Inappropriate humor is probably something you should also avoid, unless the niche itself requires this angle. Humor takes a little bit of time to get used to. Just be patient with yourself and try your best to add humor to the next thing that you write.
After the content is published on your website or blog, you need to get it indexed by the search engines doing a couple of things. The reason you want to do this is so that the search engines know that this particular content only comes from your site. One of the best places to get your content noticed is by placing a bookmark on Digg. Another thing to do is ping your new article to get noticed. If you are using a WordPress blog for your website you will not have to manually ping your page or post because WP does it for you.
Submitting your article to the top article directories is next. Don’t submit it to thousands of article directories. Once this is done, wait and see what happens. Your article, for it to be syndicated, will not just magically appear all over the web. Find syndication sites where your article could show up and be aggressive about it. Once you find them, then you go after them and get their attention and make them aware of your content. Proactive marketing is what it is all about, especially when it comes to syndicating articles. Unless you have a partner to turn to, you need to do all of this on your own. Regardless of the situation, do your best to get the content noticed wherever you can.
To be a better writer, look at what other good writers are doing, and copy their efforts. Some of them are selling what they have to offer, secret strategies that are supposed to work wonders.
You have to practice which means writing, and you have to be willing to fail many times, get feedback and criticism, and then hit it again. In all of this can come very quickly, especially if you learn things that help you along the way.
