Turning Words Into Traffic

A large portion of your business relies on your ability to deliver
quality information to your visitors. Trashy websites built entirely
of low-response sales letters are all too common. Your visitors and
mailing list subscribers rely on you for something more...
Build a lasting relationship by offering quality information while
keeping them informed of products that will improve their business and
not just deflate their bank account! One WAY-under used technique to
increase traffic AND deliver informative content is to write articles.
It doesn't matter what business you're in, someone is interested in
the services you provide. Posting articles to your website is a good
idea because it adds content for the search engines, and when your
visitors publish your articles to their ezine or on their site with
your resource box attached, it's a free advertisement for you!
A BIG part of my business comes from articles I publish to other
ezines and newsletters. So you can imagine my surprise when I found
out how much traffic I was missing out on by not using these methods.
This is a great way to bring in some extra traffic but, you can take
this concept further still by publishing your articles to the internet
through ezine directories and groups such as, Yahoo or Topica Groups.
Try running a Google search on 'ezine directories', then visiting the
first 20 sites and bookmarking their article submission page for fast
submissions in the future.
Be sure to make the subject line 'eye-catching' or you'll end up in
the recycle bin without even being read! Submit EACH article page to
the major search engines, target niche keywords using a database
service, Wordtracker offers a free trial, although you'll have access
to more keywords by using their paid version.
These are just a few examples of the benefits of producing quality
articles, getting published in the right places can bring targeted
traffic for days, weeks, and even months to come. So... Get writing!
