Success in article marketing involves syndication – this is something that every experienced article marketer will tell you. Google policy changes have had a major impact on article directories and what can be done with them. Article directories, fortunately, play a very small role in regard to true article marketing. So it is best to just think in terms of how you can get your articles syndicated. You should always keep in mind that promoting your website and business is your primary goal. So your goal, if you really want to succeed, has to do with keeping content on your site updated and fresh. Then you can look at syndicating it as widely as possible.
Tell a Story
Storytelling is something that you would assume most marketers would use, but in truth, it is quite underutilized. Stories are such a useful tool with marketing, yet most marketers have little knowledge of this concept. Storytelling is most appropriate when you are pre-selling something that you are marketing. As always, don’t focus too much on any one particular marketing strategy. The story that you write should never resemble sales copy. If it does, the strategy will not work very well at all. To effectively use stories as a marketing strategy, you must also add your pre-selling and marketing into the story itself.
Write to Express, Not Impress
Never try to impress everyone when you write your content. This simply is not going to happen. As long as you are able to write in a compelling manner, this is the direction you should go in. This type of expression is not something that your natural writing voice may allow you to convey. Many people will not be able to express themselves in this way. Each person is going to be different. It really depends what you are writing and it is your choice on how you do it. But remember that people, in general, relate to the same emotions they feel about so many things. Important considerations to make include the subject matter, the audience you are talking to and also your ability to express yourself in what you write.
In this discussion about related niches, you can write some articles that are more geared to those related niches but they still are mainly about your primary niche.
Tackle Related Topics
When discussing related topics, you need to walk a fine line. It’s fun to do. I’ve seen it done before. But you must always use caution. Expanding into related topics is something that you have to try. There are limitless traffic potentials when doing this type of writing. Think about rinse and repeat because you will do the same things with these related niches that you do with your regular one, and that is very powerful.
This process is very simple! Although there are many IM products on the market, few actually cover this very simple strategy. If you’re like most people, you’ll have most of your troubles writing the content opposed to actually submitting the content to get it noticed. People that put in the effort can do both the marketing and the writing themselves. Producing great content is not that hard, nor do you have to be born with the genetics to do so.
