    Does Article Marketing Really Generate Traffic?

    (Page 1 of 3 )

    As we’ve all come to realize, the Internet is vast -- perhaps beyond our comprehension. If you have a website, your best chance at monetizing it is through the use of targeted traffic. There’s no telling the wide array of information people are seeking online every day, but if your website features detailed, informative articles about a specific topic, you have a good chance at making a steady online income. This type of specified content is called article marketing, and aside from bringing targeted traffic to your website, it also distinguishes you as knowledgeable in your field.

    History of Article Marketing

    Believe it or not, article marketing has been around a very long time -- well before the invention of the Internet. It has been used by professionals for almost as long as mass print has been available to the masses. Article marketing has most commonly been used in paper-print by business owners as a way of obtaining free press space. After all, how many of us have opened up a magazine or local newspaper in the years past only to find an article that we are reading is actually an advertisement? Surely a countless number.

    Not too long ago, a local business would provide useful content to a newspaper, usually a small, local one, free of charge. In return, the newspaper would print the business's contact information with the article. At the time, newspapers and other traditional media were -- and to a certain degree still are -- expected to present content on limited budgets. This arrangement was generally considered advantageous for all parties involved. Many newspapers, especially large ones, may now consider this type of agreement unethical, but magazines are still known to participate in these types of arrangements.

    The Internet has definitely changed the way that businesses are marketed. Today, for example, an accounting firm is now able to market itself by writing an online article entitled "The Top 10 Ways to Avoid Getting Audited." The firm can post the article on their website or utilize accounting-related websites to post the article several weeks prior to tax season. Similarly, the same can be done via a different type of technology. A roofing company can offer radio stations a concise advertisement pertaining to how to avoid ice damage to your roof shortly before the winter season.

    Being successful at article marketing is no different from being successful at any other type of business; it requires a marketing strategy. A successful website will have a flow of visitors that are searching for the exact information, product, or service provided by that website. If you have a site, it’s your job to provide that content and make sure it’s readily available to all interested parties.

    Like all things in life, there is a right way and...not so much a “wrong” way, but an unsuccessful way to implement your article marketing strategy. This article covers the essential things you need to consider when you market your articles across the Internet. Let’s get started.
