Article Writing for Internet Success

I am in a bit of a rush right now but I just wanted to tell you that writing articles is a very important thing to do in the world of internet. When you get to the point of having something you want to sell (we'll cover that another time), one of the best ways to promote it is to write articles about it. You can submit these articles to the many different article sites.

How does this help you sell? Well, you make sure to integrate into your signature at the bottom of the article the url (web site address) of the site you want potential customers to come to. Thus, your article helped you "pre-sell" the customer and helped you achieve credibility in the customer's eyes and when the customer clicks your link he/she may be more ready to buy.

Another thing - Search engines love to see new content on your web site. So, constantly adding new articles is a great way to get FREE traffic to your site. Sure, you can buy articles or even software that generates articles, but you still have to do some writing.

There are oodles and oodles of ebooks and information on the web about article writing.
One thing is for sure, in order to make it on the internet, you have to be willing to write.

I agree about how important article writing is, Dena. Of course there is no "one way" to make money online, but I'm a writer so I'm just a little biased on this one ;-)

I do a bit of marketing coaching, and I tell people that whether or not they have a website, they HAVE to write articles.

My favorite thing about them is that once they're written and submitted to article directories, they're "out there" for keeps. It's the advertising that...just keeps on advertising, growing and spreading.

With all the stuff we have to do over and over and over...those "set and forget" things are priceless!

I still bump into articles I wrote years ago on websites I'm visiting for the first time, it's way cool.
