Well the short answer is yes, but there are some very specific things to have in place before implementing this strategy.
Why is article marketing effective?
Because article marketing is a good strategy for new marketers to start with because it’s pretty easy to write and post an article. In most cases it should only take a couple hours for the whole process. Then you have a piece of content out there working for you 24/7 bringing in visitors and sales to your websites.
At least that’s how it’s supposed to work right?
But simply writing and posting an article for your business or opportunity isn’t going to get you very far. Not with all of the competition out there.
So I’ve put together a quick step by step process that anyone can implement that will not only produce visitors to your websites but leads and sales eventually as well.
Step #1 Write your article and include a link to your offer
Step#2 Post your article on a blog or website that you own
Step#3 Promote your article on social media like Facebook and Twitter
Step#4 Syndicate your article through article marketing directories like GoArticles.com and Articlesbase.com
Step#5 Lather, Rinse, and Repeat!!!
Now, it takes time to set up profiles and blogs, I know this, trust me, it took me months to even figure that this was what I was supposed to do. But once it’s set up, it doesn’t have to be done again. Then you can write 10 articles a day if you wanted. It doesn’t matter, it’s your business.
The one critical mistake I made in the beginning, is that I wasn’t consistent. I spent too much time on minor details, I wanted everything to be perfect, I thought that I couldn’t write well, and the result was a lot of inaction on my part.
So do yourself a huge favor and commit. Commit to posting a new article everyday. I’m doing it and I know you can too. The best part is you can learn this stuff as you go along.
So is article marketing effective? I say yes….
It’s an amazing strategy, but failing to stay consistent with these steps will change your yes to a big fat no.
