If you’re an ezine subscriber, or read one of my many writing blogs, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of article marketing.
Essentially article marketing is advertising. You write short articles, providing information in return for advertising your products or services at the end of the article. Unlike other forms of advertising, your articles keep working for you for years, for free.
I’m still making sales from articles I wrote six and seven years ago. This is amazing to me, because there’s simply no other form of advertising which keeps working for you for years.
Occasionally (and very stupidly) I’ve stopped article marketing, dipping my toes into other forms of advertising. I’ve always regretted it, because with other advertising, once you stop paying, the advertising stops.
My favorite article marketing directory is Ezine Articles, and they’ve just launched a new benefit for their writers.
Building Your Fan Base reports:
“HUGE NEW FEATURE RELEASED: Your EzineArticles readership fans can now subscribe via email to receive alerts whenever you have a new article published.”
This means that if you read one of my articles on Ezine Articles, and decide that you enjoy it, you can subscribe to receive an alert letting you know about new articles.
What’s stopping you using article marketing for YOUR freelance writing business?
Big Tip – remember that you can offer an article marketing service to your clients
Many Internet marketers use article marketing, hiring writers to both write the articles and post them to venues like Ezine Articles.
Offer this service – it’s needed, and you’ll find many buyers. One ezine subscriber wrote that article marketing forms a huge part of her freelance writing business. She has ten clients, each of whom she charges $1000 a month for writing and submitting articles. Do the math. 🙂
Write more – become a pro writer
Yes, you can write more and become an expert writer – even if you’re a world-class procrastinator.
Did you know that when you write more, your writing improves? Many of my writing students experience this. They find that when they write more, writing is easier for them – they’re not dominated by their inner editor.
My new writing class, “Write More And Make More Money From Your Writing: Develop A Fast, Fun Productive Writing Process” is based on lessons I developed for my private coaching students to help them to write more, improve their writing, and make more money writing.
If you’re struggling with your writing, the class will help. The techniques you’ll learn in class with help you write fiction, nonfiction, and copy for business.
Discover how you can write more, improve your writing, and sell more of your writing to higher-paying markets.
