Want to get more writing jobs than you can handle? Here you go – start article marketing; you’ll be turning buyers away.
If you’re not familiar with article marketing, here’s a short definition. It’s writing articles, and then syndicating (distributing) them on the Web, as a comparatively inexpensive form of advertising.
Most writers don’t have huge advertising budgets, so by writing “free” articles, you’re saving thousands of dollars each year. As your articles draw traffic to your Web site, buyers commission you to write for them.
Let’s look at how much money you save. I just checked “copywriting” on a keyword statistics Web site. The keyword “copywriting” is costing the top advertisers $180 a day (in late September, 2008), which is $900 over a five day week.
Obviously the advertisers are making enough money to cover the ad spend. However, once they stop advertising, they stop making sales.
The benefit of article marketing over other forms of advertising is that once written, your articles stay online forever. They keep sending you traffic, and therefore buyers of your writing services, at no cost to you.
Get Started Article Marketing and Get Writing Jobs
Let’s look at you get started article marketing.
Your first step is to create a Web site. You’ll post some of your articles to your site, and will syndicate others. Your site doesn’t need to take time to create – you can create a Blogger blog in minutes.
Big tip: the articles you write for your site and for syndication aren’t sales tools; they’re information. You sell your services via a “bio” or “resource box” at the end of the article.
Once you’ve created your site, it’s time to start writing articles.
If you’re wondering what you should write about, the answer is: think about the buyers of your writing services. What information will attract them to read your articles?
Need ideas? Here are some examples:
If I wanted more copywriting clients I’d write articles on topics like copywriting, branding and marketing;
If you wanted to get clients for your resume writing service, you’d write articles about job hunting and resumes;
If you wanted to get clients for your blogging services, you’d write articles on topics like business blogging, marketing, and CRM (Customer Relationship Management);
If you wanted to get clients for your article marketing services (yes, once you know how article marketing works, you can sell services in this area), you’d write articles on topics like article marketing, Web site promotion, and traffic generation.
All the articles you syndicate would include your resource box, so as the articles were published across the Web, each article would send traffic to your site. As your traffic increased, the numbers of buyers of your writing services would increase.
Before too long, you’d be in the happy position of picking and choosing your clients. You could raise your rates, knowing a steady supply of writing jobs was flowing to you.
I love article marketing. Try it. Before too long, you’ll be singing the praises of this process too.
