Online business owners are quickly realizing that setting up a new website and generating targeted traffic to their website can be a major headache. It’s a well known fact that without targeted traffic to your website, no online business can survive. With the high cost of generating targeted traffic via PPC advertising, and paying for the high cost of hiring a SEO expert, this may not always produce the best cost effective results.
Dwayne Garrett of TheArticleBoard.com has created a article directory software solution to help solve the problem of getting cost effective targeted traffic. The Article Board is a web based software platform that connects authors and publishers online to come together to write, submit and publish their web content. Web content seekers can easily search the article directory for quality articles to reprint and publish on their websites, or include in their online newsletters for free. This process known by expert marketers, is a known as “Article Marketing”. It not only helps website owners to get targeted traffic, but highly qualified traffic, not to mention, its free!
By submitting articles to TheArticleBoard.com, authors share information about their respective fields. At the bottom of each article, in what is called the resource box, the author is allowed to write a few sentences about his/her website and to place an active link back to his/her site. Readers of the article who click over to the author’s site form highly targeted traffic.
Dwayne said. “That by submitting articles to article directories, the authors build credibility and help fortify their standing as an expert.” He added, “This will help to create valuable back links to the authors website and will result in added targeted exposure”. He went on to say that, “Authors who submit their articles will receive an increase in targeted traffic to their websites because the articles will be picked up by online publishers seeking articles for their particular niche websites and newsletters”.
Here are some valuable tips that will help you to get the most out of using an online article directory for generating targeted traffic to your websites:
1: Make sure you include your web site link in the resource box of the article as this will prompt the reader to click for more information. This is your MOST important selling tool so make sure you include it on your article submissions.
2: Spelling. Check the spelling 3 times. There is absolutely nothing worse than an article with spelling mistakes. You lose all credibility instantly. That is why I recommend checking spelling 3 times. First, use a spell checker on your computer. Second, scan the article yourself on your computer. Third, print out the article and check again yourself.
3: For many article resource sites they have written rules for how to submit articles. If you do not follow the rules, it is likely that your article will not be submitted. Make sure you read the rules (if any) and follow them.
4: Title. Make sure the title of your article is the ONLY thing in the subject header of your email if submitting articles by email. When I look for articles to include in my own ezine, I scan the titles. If the subject heading says “New Article for Posting” or something like that, then I will not even bother reading the article. No matter how good it is!
5: Only submit your article(s) once. A quick way to get into trouble with many article resource site owners is to submit the same article(s) a number of times. It’s just not worth it.
There are many things to consider when ubmitting articles to article resource sites. Follow these 5 tips and you should not have any problems.
