Does Article Marketing Still Work?
It wasn’t too long ago when article marketing was the biggest and best way to get your site noticed on the Internet. You could drive hordes of traffic to your site in very little time and start making sales immediately. As with everything, times have changed on the Internet and article marketing has taken on a new life of its own.
Gone are the days when you could simply throw an article together, send it into Ezinearticles or Go Articles and then expect to see traffic. There are still ways to make a lot of money and effectively market your site using article marketing, but it’s not by tossing together a quick word salad and then sending it off to the directories.
This is a part of article marketing that has worked remarkably in the past, continues to work just as well now and will definitely continue to be effective in the future. This is human controlled marketing where you write an over-the-top article that people pick up from a directory to use. There are major authority Internet sites that are always looking for great articles that they can use on their sites, in their newsletters etc.
When your article gets picked up the resource box must stay intact. This means that thousands of people will see your article and then hopefully click on your link if you have written a compelling article. Humans decide whether they can use your article or not to distribute to their sometimes massive mailing lists and you get to piggyback on this list. It’s a great way to do business and no, it’s not going to be going anywhere soon.
This is not a trend that Google is going to pick up on and then hammer in its next update. This involves business between a real webmaster and a person that has written a striking article. This is a long-lasting building model that you can use over and over again to help develop your website.
If you can’t write this type of article it is worth the money to hire a writer that is capable of handling this type of quality content. You’ll have to pay good money to get an article that is worth syndication but it will be money very well spent.
Instead of hiring a writer to spit out horrible and useless content that you can add to directories where it will probably never be seen or used, take the money you were going to invest in 10 articles and put it into one that is worth syndication. This is the only way to go about article marketing these days.
