Promote Your Business For Free
by Louanne Baelde
Write articles to promote your business and website. This way you will create great content and gain a fabulous reputation as an expert in your field. Ezine publishers are always looking for new material. And let’s not forget the fact that it will be free advertising. You will see your article gain exposure all over the world with the blinking of an eye.
Make sure to include a resource box and or with your link at the bottom of your article. You can even write a short sentence explaining the right to reprint your copy or article as long as the resource box remains at the end of the article. Now it’s time to begin our short lesson.
Writing your first article is always hardest the first time around, but once you get started there will be no stopping you.
The first thing you should do is to try to think of different ideas to market your products or business. If you do have a marketing business, you may want to think of different techniques to attract new customers.
As you think of the idea, quickly jot it down. That way you won’t forget it. Once you have quite a few, select which one you want to use first, and write about it.
Be sure to choose a title that will capture the reader’s attention.
Now you can start to generate your article. There are two different formats for you to use. First, is the Outline Method. With this way of writing, you jot down all the important things that you want to mention in your article. Then you simply discuss in more detail, the aspects that you created and throw in useful information. You could even include links to helpful resources.
Next is the Lecture Method. This method is fabulous. Think for just a little of what you want to write about. Now pretend that you’re talking to someone about your topic. Just let it flow naturally, as though they are sitting right next to you. Type while you’re talking out loud if this is helpful for you. Carry on a full conversation with yourself. I find this the easiest method. Whisper the conversation as you type.
Develop your own style that works best for you. Have fun; play with your words a little. Relax and enjoy your conversation. You’ll be surprised at how quickly your words will flow. And voilà! There it will be!
Don’t be afraid to give your article character. If you’re a funny person, throw in a bit of humor. Readers like that.
Subscribe to ezines or article groups. Read other articles to get an idea of what other authors are writing. Don’t copy their style though. Let your own personality shine.
Once you’re finished your article, read and review your work a few times over again. If you can, put it aside until the next day. You’ll be amazed at how much difference this can make. Do a spell-check and there you go.
Make whatever changes or corrections that are necessary. Now submit your article to as many ezines or article directories as you can. Even as soon as a few days to a few weeks after you submit your article, you will realize that it is spreading like wild fire. Just do a search on Google or Yahoo with your article name or your author name and have fun browsing through all the various links.
The first article is always a little challenging, but once you take that first baby step, the others will be a snap.
This article is free to publish, but it may not be edited in any way and resource link must remain.
