Welcome to this article about Make Your Article Marketing Niche Your Biggest Pain .

I know that sounds odd, but hear me out on this one. It is key to your success.

One of the critical steps to creating an income in article marketing is selecting your niche. This probably doesn’t come as news to you, but the niche you choose can make you lose. Lose time and money.

Niche selection is truly the cornerstone of every other step that follows in developing an article marketing strategy that actually rewards you with a commission check, month after month. Once you have an idea about what niche to write about you can pursue an affiliate program that offers a solution.

How to Pick Your Niche

No doubt you’ve heard experts tell you to write about something you love. That way you’ll remain motivated enough to stick to your game plan without firing up the latest program designed to make you rich. While writing about something you love makes sense on the surface, this may not be a good magnet for prospective readers (aka buyers.)

If you haven’t heard the starving crowd story you need to hear it. It was part of a lesson presented by a legendary marketer named Gary Halbert. Gary is no longer with us, but his brilliance lives on in the lessons he shared with his students and followers (his list.) The Starving Crowd Story

Imagine that you are a hot dog vendor and you are setting up a new hot dog stand right next to another established stand selling exactly the same products. If you could have just one advantage, from the freshest meat and hot dog rolls, to the most attractive waitresses, to the most colorful lighting, what would you choose?

Gary’s answer?

The only thing he would want to guarantee his success would be a starving crowd.

Now in “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” best selling author Robert T. Kiyosaki tweaked this a bit and his recommendation is that you don’t just stop after you find a starving crowd. You find the crowd that’s addicted. He looks for a group of people who are so addicted to what it is that they want, all you have to do is throw your advertising bait into the water and they’ll go into a feeding frenzy to buy it from you. Here’s your Three Steps to Picking Your Niche for Article Marketing

1. Go online and find your own starving crowd.
2. Find out what they are already buying.
3. Sell them more of the same products or services.

That’s all there is to it. You simply find a need and fill it. It doesn’t matter that lots of others are filling the same need. You don’t have to come up with something totally new. Market something that’s selling! You can invent something new later.

That’s where I finally caught the wave with my own article marketing effort. I admit, I started out with something I love, cats. Now don’t groan if you are a dog lover or aren’t into pets, you can win at the article marketing game too.

What I did was find something about my cats that was very problematic. Then I found products to make that problem go away-for good. That’s what I mean by starting an article marketing campaign around something you hate. Find something that resolves a problem or a pain that bothered you or someone you love.

Start your efforts making money online with article marketing even before you jump into blogging. Write about something that really aggravates you. I know it sounds crazy, but people love to spend money online or offline fixing problems or making pains go away.

You are in good company if you have ever considered using article marketing to promote your business. Article marketing has become a very popular way to get sites noticed on search engines.

Article Marketing is a good way to optimize the potential of your business or website for building your credibility, generating traffic, and creating one way backlinks to your site. Backlinks are very important for the search engine ranking success of your business.

Content is king when it comes to writing articles. Fresh and relevant content is the key by which sites gain targeted readers and improve their search engine ranking.

It is for this reason that web masters and business owners try their best to maximize the effect and benefit they can get from the content on their websites. One of the most effective ways of getting the most out of your content is to submit it to article directories.

When you submit your articles to article directories, there is a bigger chance that your articles will be used by popular websites. This will surely improve your link popularity. This will also make your business more visible to more people.

Unique Article Wizard is an article submitter service I use to submit my articles. I tried submitting articles myself to directories, but I realized rather quickly that I was spending way too much time. Also, my articles were not unique. A unique article is one that is different from any other article.

Every article the Wizard sends out is unique. This is very important because search engines penalize duplicate content. It also means that you can display articles on your site without worrying about duplicate content.

Unique Article Wizard currently submits to well over 3,000 directories and hundreds of niche blogs. Articles are submitted only for the categories that your site supports so you don’t have to worry about off-target content.

Most other article submitter services that I looked at submitted duplicate content, limited how many domains or author’s names I could use and submitted to only a limited number of articles directories.

Writing articles that pique the attention of readers that have an interest in your service or product will reward you with a steady stream of buying customers to your site.

Unique Article Wizard is truly the most effective tool on the internet when it comes to creating genuine backlinks to your site, increasing your credibility, and rocketing your site to the top of the search engines. I now have a steady stream of traffic and you can too!

Article marketing is one of the best forms of free advertising on or offline that is available for bringing new visitors to our websites.

Why is that you ask?

Writing articles can lead to increased visitors to your website. The main reasons you’re writing an article is for people to read and learn about your topic and you. After writing an article you want it published of course. Getting it publshed is how you’re going to drive traffic to your site.

If you know your target market then the hardest part of the work has been done for you – that of assembling a list several thousand individuals to read your article.

You’ll want to submit it to ezine publishers, article directories and create a webpage on your site to display it and to submit to the search engines.

There are several things to consider if you decide to write and submit articles to ezines. The format for writing the article itself, finding ezines to submit it to and figuring out the right way to submit it to publishers so that it gets an above average chance of being used by the publisher.

Writing is hard work. At least for me that is. I tend to generally keep up with how the internet is evolving and develop an article from changes that I see going on.

Writing articles for ezines takes on a basic format that you should become familiar with.

If you haven’t already subscribed to several good, quality ezines do so immediately. You want to review the articles in them so you can get a basic idea of the layout of an article that publishers expect when you submit an article to them.

You’ll notice it has:

– A Title
– The Authors Name
– The Body or Content of the Article
– An Authors Resource Box
– Sentences are under 65 characters per line

Those are the five main components of articles that are typically submitted to ezine publishers. Your best bet is not to vary from it in your initial writing efforts.

Let’s take a look at each one of those components.

** The Title **

Often times you may not even come up with a good attention grabbing title until after you have finished your article. If you have a general idea of what your article is going to cover it may be helpful later on if you jot down
some ideas right away.

**The Authors Name **

Hey you should be able to come up with this on your own. Include yours just under the title of your article.

** The Body or Content **

By far the most important aspect of your article. The best articles address some kind of problem or concern that readers may be experiencing and are looking for help, guidance or a solution for. If you have identified a bonafide problem take the time to do the research to find a solution for it.

The solution could be in the form of a unique solution you yourself have found, an existing one that few people know about or you could provide several solutions from which the reader can choose the one best suited to their needs.

Some good articles also address concerns of people in certain areas of their life or business for which there is no clear cut solution. If you can present the facts, known or obscure data that will keep a reader informed on the subject or help them come to a conclusion on their own, it will work just as well.

Within the article it is always a nice affect if you can provide some online resources or links that a reader can use to help solve their own problem or gather information from which they can draw their own conclusions.

Keep in mind that you are not writing your article(s) for the fun of it. At least I hope you’ve given some thought to what you want to accomplish using this method. Your main purpose is to get a few if not several hundred of those readers to visit your website so that you can present them with your own offers for subscribing to your ezine, joining your affiliate program, membership site or buying one of your products.

Your efforts should be in presenting a good quality article to the publisher. Take your time writing about the subject you’ve chosen. Clearly the best method of writing on the
internet is a personal, one-to-one approach to writing, write as though you’re talking to a friend or relative you know very well.

** Authors Resource Box **

This is your byline. This allows everyone who reads your article to learn more about you and your business. You’ll include it at the end of your article and it should contain a short description of your site, product or service you offer, along with your url.

It’s the second most important section of your article. Here you can put between 4 to 6 lines of text. This is the only acceptable format for advertising yourself, your website, ezine, product, etc. Describe it in as great a detail as you can get into these few lines.

Publishers will exercise their own judgment and may shorten it to meet the standard criteria they have set for all submitted articles.

Here are some more Quick Tips to remember about writing your article:

– Keep your sentences and paragraphs short
– Use action words throughout your article
– Use examples from your own experience
– Write as though you’re talking to one person
– Personalize your message
– Use plenty of white space
– Use small understandable words
– Use subheadings
– Don’t hyphenate words at the end of sentences

Just one good article on a subject that is relevant to your target market and the target market of the ezine that you’re trying to get it published in, will produce some great publicity for you. Invite publishers of ezines with similar interests as yours to publish the article.

You really don’t want to slant it towards one of your products, an affiliate program or have your own links plastered throughout your article. Just about all publishers I know will recognize that kind of writing as a cheap effort to advertise a product at their expense.

Think about it – if a publisher wanted to see a product, etc promoted in his ezine he would put one of his own in it – not some stranger he has never met. Don’t try to disguise an advertisement for one of your products as an article. Most publishers will see right through this scheme.

The length of your article should probably be between 400 to 1000 words. Any less than 400 doesn’t give enough depth to a subject. Any more than 1000 can be too long for some ezine publishers who try to keep the content of there ezine to a maximum size for purposes of distribution and reader attention.

OK, so you’ve got your article written and it’s a gem and you know everyone will want to read it. Two things you now need to focus on – finding publishers and getting publishers to look at it.

The easiest place to start looking for publishers is in your own email program. Have you subscribed to any ezines? If so how many? If not – why not? If you haven’t
subscribed to a lot of them then you need to “go forth and subscribe” to as many as you can. The reason you want to do this is to build a database of ezines that are similar to your target market and at the same time become familiar with the ezines format.

You can also do a search on google or any of the other major search engines to look for ezines and article directories that your article would be appropriate for.

Here are a few article directories to get you started:

http://www.goarticles.com

http://www.ezinearticles.com

http://www.articlecity.com

http://www.article-emporium.com

Well how do you get your article accepted in ezines?

Guess what? As long as you’re in the writing mood, you’re going to have to write a short email to each publisher and ask them to publish it. Or you can invest in member only sites or software that will automate this process for you.

I’m including a sample email template for you to look at. My experience is that you modify the text and personalize any template to your own style and writing. Using a template as is from a resource like this soon becomes recognizeable and automatically deleted by most publishers who receive it. Use your imagination when you draft your own letter.

Sample E-Mail Letter To A Publisher

Does your company has it’s own website? If not, then it should have been there yesterday! Customers are extremely technically savvy nowadays and most prefer to find vendors online. If you do not have a company website then you are leaving a big share of your profits on the table.

Website Promotion is the next obvious step to tell everyone that you have an online presence. When people are searching the Internet, they should be able to see your website and visit to learn about your products and services.

More on Website Promotion:

When people are searching online to find the products or services they are interested in, most will visit their favorite search engines like Google or Yahoo and type their keywords (or search terms). The search engine then lists various websites that match the search term. Getting your website in that list is primarily considered as website promotion although there are many other methods. Essentially, it is a way to attract more traffic or visitors to your website.

Search Engine Optimization is often the first thing any website owner will do in order to promote his/her website. It is the also the most difficult and time consuming task because a ton of research needs to be done to find out the exact keywords that your target audience uses to find your website in the search engines.

Things To Avoid

No matter what other people say, stuffing your website with a number of keywords spells disaster. The search engines are smart and use sophisticated algorithms to figure our whether they keywords your website contains are relevant and match the content on your web page before presenting it their visitors. If the search engines find a website spamming, they will be permanently taken out of their database and never shown to visitors again.

Putting all your keywords on each page of your website will most likely get your website out of the search engine databases. It is recommended to have 2 or 3 keywords per web page with a density (repetition) of about 2% throughout the content. Built separate pages of each keyword or key phrase and link them all together using a sitemap for optimal results.

A key point to remember is having unique or specific keywords. For example, if you are marketing credit cards, there are thousands of other websites with the same keyword. A little research can help you find specific keywords such as ‘credit card alabama’ or ‘how to get a credit card’ or ‘credit card reviews’ to get optimum search engine rankings.

Though SEO or search engine optimization is the most common way to website promotion, it is highly advice to add other methods to attract more targeted visitors to your website. This include banners, pay per click, video marketing, article publishing and so on. By combining various website promotion methods, you can achieve top rankings in the search engines too.

Though it appears formidable at first, it is fairly easy to promote your website. The more you promote the more reach you will have. More people can find you online and visit your website. A percentage of those visitors will likely end up buying your products or services. So, it is obvious that you cannot afford to skip website promotion.

Article marketing is considered as one of the best content-based marketing solutions in the internet today. It is commonly used by marketers to distribute information to their potential clients to build rapport and establish their expertise on their chosen niche.

If the article submission site allows the opportunity for additional links beyond your resource box, take the time to double check that each link works. Broken links or links not properly HTML coded will delay the submission of the article.

Don’t use article spinning software. There are so many article marketers who are using spinning software because they would like to easily augment the number of their articles. While these tools can help you boost the number of your copies, they cannot guarantee the quality.

In no time flat you can establish yourself as an expert on any subject that you happen to be knowledgeable on. Because article directories are voracious carnivores for quality content, they are always looking for fresh NEW content to add to their databases for their readers, webmasters, newsletter, and e-Zine publishers.

Articles should be of a great interest so as to get the readers down to the resource box or lead the webmasters to reprint the article as it is on their sites. The first element is to catch the eye of a reader and confer a high degree of controversy.

Make sure you can add these when you submit your articles, these are what the search engines will look for the most when caching your article page on the articles directory website. The website should professionally display all this information, again this is a tell tale sign for a serious article directory or not.

Improve your conversion rate. To easily convince online users to open your articles, make sure that you use attention grabbing and interesting titles that can communicate the gist of your content.

Also, create keyword-rich articles. However, make sure that it makes sense when you re-read the keyword rich article you have written. Don’t put in the keyword for the sake of placing them in the articles and end up making the article looks bad. Article Marketing is free and it provides free publicity for your sites, especially if it’s a new site.

Can you make money in article marketing without outsourcing your work? Yes you can but it will take time and you will have to be very much disciplined about how many articles you write per day and understand that you are not going to generate the traffic that it takes to make big money.

We can not deny that articles are the food of the search engines. Of course, I am talking about unique articles here and not duplicate content. Unless your website has only a one, two or three pages only, and then you will be needing lots and lots of directory submission and other promotional works to do.

Stay on top of the game by writing about new ideas. Avoid writing the same topics over and over again as this can annoy your readers. Get fresh ideas by subscribing to the RSS feeds of relevant websites, or by visiting forums and article submission sites.

Your website will gain traffic from article submissions in a few ways. The most simple way of getting traffic is from the reader, who clicks on your link at the end of the article to go back to your promoted website.

Optimize your articles. The success of your article marketing effort largely depends on how easy it would be for online users to find your articles online. Convince search engines to index your articles by sprinkling just the right amount of keywords on your content.

You need to research your competitor’s work and the content they offer. This will help you in differentiating you from them and help in offering the information, which their work lacks. This includes lack of verification, proof reading, cover letters, and bio box.

Undoubtedly, article marketing is the best resource available for driving qualified and targeted traffic direct to your website. Besides sharing your knowledge and establishing your expertise in your field, you can implement article submission as a key step in your marketing strategy to increase your sales and profits.

Article Marketing is a great tool to use when it comes to adding traffic to your site. If you are not familiar with what it is, Article Marketing is simply writing articles and submitting them to article reprint directories on the web.

You’re probably aware that fresh content is important to getting search engine traffic to your website or blog. A lot of webmasters and bloggers frequent these article directory websites, looking for new articles for their own sites.

When you submit an article to a directory, you are allowing other website owners and bloggers permission to add your article to their site – for free. However, they need to include an ‘about the author’ box at the end of the article.

This resource box is basically an “about the author” section where you can include information about your website, as well as links back to it.

When the webmaster uses your article on their site, they need to include that information and the links which will be in front of everyone who sees the article on their site. If you write a good article, it can end up on hundreds of websites with thousands of people reading it. Naturally, many of them will click the link to your website for more information.

Finding article directories isn’t difficult – all you really need to do is a Google search for “article directory”. Some of the results will focus on specific markets, such as health or home & garden, while many will accept articles on almost any topic.

Coming up with ideas for article topics is really not hard. Just take the topic of your website and think of a question your visitors would have, then write an article answering it. For example, if you have a gardening website, you could write about how to care for your indoor plants or when to start planting seeds.

If you’re not a natural writer, don’t let it bother you. There are plenty of places you can hire writers that will “ghostwrite” your articles for you. The cost will vary, depending on the quality of the writer, but you’ll generally pay between $7 and $15 for a 500 word article. If you really want to be hands-off, you can even outsource the submission of the articles and just sit back and watch the visitors arrive on your website!
