Article Marketing – Low Cost, Effective Advertising for your Business

In any business, promotion costs money. Unfortunately, there are few businesses which can survive without advertising, so promotion is essential. Did you know that there’s a simple, low cost, highly effective advertising venue almost any business can use?

It’s article marketing.

Article marketing involves posting short articles, of around 500 words, to article directories around the Web. In return for the information you provide in the article, you can promote your business at the bottom of the article, in a paragraph or two called the “resource box” or “bio.”

Aside from the cost (free advertising) there are are three additional boosts article marketing gives you:

1. Articles provide backlinks – powerful links back to your Web site

Articles provide backlinks when posted to article directories, and they reach customers you could reach in no other way.

These backlinks also boost your rankings in the search engines, giving you organic traffic which directs prospects to your Web site for years.

2. Articles showcase your expertise

Credibility counts on the Web. The more you can showcase your expertise, the more your credibility builds.

Your prospective customers need to know that they can trust you before they will buy from you; article marketing builds that trust.

3. Articles when added to your Web site increase your site’s visibility in the search engines

In addition to posting your articles on the article directories, post articles on your own site. This increases the size of your site, and since each site page offers another way for prospects to find you, articles are a great way to build visibility.
