When we start our online business, we are all looking for a way to generate more leads because that’s exactly how we make money and generate passive income! But we keep having the same question, do we need paid advertisement to really succeed or can we have good result for free? We are all having hard time driving traffic to our links and promoting our business online. But how will you feel if you could just sit back and let someone else do it for you? Well it’s possible, and it’s completely FREE…This method works like a charm, more than some “paid traffic” we are getting out there anyway. And the best part is, it doesn’t cost you a penny! That’s exactly what article submissions is all about.
How Does It Work?
Submitting an article to an article directory is a very good way of driving traffic for your links, whether you’re starting your online business or just trying to boost the traffic to your site. All you have to do is write an article that would be useful to your prospects, and put a resource box at the end of the article with a link to your website or blog. The resource box will contain a small statement about yourself with the link back to your website for them to find out more information. Then, submit your article to as much article directories as you can, and that’s all. Other people take over from this there.
What’s The Next Step?
After you post your articles to directories, depending how good or useful it’s, your article gets posted on other people’s site. A lot of other website owners check these article directories for articles they can use as content for their website or newsletter. But when they use your article, they agree to not change the article and to leave YOUR resource box on it. That’s how they advertise your website for you while no action is required from your side anymore
You may be thinking now, this all sounds great but I’m not that great at writing. Well you don’t have to be! You’re not trying to sell a novel here. All you need to do is writing something that you think would be useful for someone else to know. So as long as your content is helpful I’m sure there will be plenty of people who WANT to read it. And the more you write, the better your writing is going to get. So you don’t have to sit around and keep procrastinating because you don’t feel you can write good enough. Start writing an you’ll surely get better! You can also hire some people online to write good copy for you.
How Is This Better Than Some Paid Advertising Method?
Well, I would say this is good and work better than some paid traffic for several reasons. First of all it is FREE. Second, it’s viral. Take a look at this scenario. If you post an article on a couple article directories and only 5 people decide to use it in their newsletter. Each of these people has 1,000 people on their list. This advertises your site to 5,000 people. Now imagine if 100 people used your article or if they had 20,000 people each on their list. This becomes really powerful! And the third important reason is, it establishes you as an expert in that field. People will trust you more and will be more willing to buy from you or follow your advice if you’ve already given them useful information. Forth, after you’ve written a lot of article you can compile them into your own eBook and give it away as free bonus on your capture page or sell it. Some paid advertising can’t give you this kind of result. So stop wasting more money and more time, and start writing or posting your articles Now!
