Free Articles to Promote Your Website
A great way to get some traffic to your site is to write interesting articles and distribute them for free to other websites – of course you should include your web address in the article! The vast majority of Internet users, some 99%, use the Internet for getting information, so this is a great way to reach people.
You don’t even need to contact individual sites to offer your articles, as there are a couple of dedicated sites that deal in free articles. You have to submit your articles and wait for them to be approved before they are available for other web developers and owners to use. Have a look at:
How to do it
Here are my tips for writing articles for free distribution:-
-Write about subjects that will appeal to large numbers of people
-Write to suit your target market
-Write about subjects with year-round appeal that don’t date quickly
-Try to create intrigue about your own website to get people to click through
-Use strong headlines to capture attention
-Keep your copy succinct and to the point
-Establish yourself as an expert in your field
-Avoid advertising in your article – people will see through this
-Provide solutions for problems
-Provide useful information that people can use
What to do
Your article should be between 500 and 750 words in
length, with your details at the end – maybe a short author bio with a link to your website.
It takes time but could be well worth it for the exposure your site will get. People who use
your articles are obliged by the rules to keep in your copyright notices and include your web address. They should also reproduce your article as it is and leave it unedited.
If you are lucky and write good quality articles, you might find that sites with high traffic will use your work and visitors may well subsequently click through to your site.
The best way to produce good articles is to write about subjects you know as this will give you a
head start and a feel for the salient points about a given
subject. If you stick to a theme, you will also be working toward developing
yourself as an expert and this is always a route to making money on the Internet.
Free content for your website
As well as subtly promoting your products and services, it can also be a great way to get hold of some free content for your website – have a look at
