Article marketingArticle writing and distributing them is one of the most effective and low cost ways to drive lots of targeted traffic to your website, whether you are just starting out with your online business or you are a seasoned professional. The writing of articles and submitting them to the article directories will drive free traffic to your site when people click on the link in your resource box. Article marketing is also a great way to improve search engine rankings as you will have plenty of incoming links to your website.

So let’s have a look at a  few tips for easy article writing to help you get started. 

Compile A Top Ten List

Compiling a top ten list is an easy way to get started with an article.  Firstly find a topic related to your business and jot down ten reasons why someone should purchase your product or offer advice on a topic that is related to your website. Here are some examples: top ten ways to work from home, top ten reasons to write articles or top ten reasons to lose weight. Then once you have your list of ten items write a short paragraph about each and explaining the reason in a little more detail.

Then add an introductory paragraph that pulls the reader into your article. An introduction to the top ten reasons to write articles could mention how hard it is to get free search engine traffic until you start writing articles. Next you need to close your article either by summing up on what you just told them in your top ten lists or encouraging them to act on what you just told them about.

You have done it – congratulations – you have just written an article. You can easily shorten this to a top 5 list and just write a little more about each of your points.

Recording Your Article

A lot of people prefer recording themselves while they are talking about a particular topic and then transcribing and editing it into an article. This may be a great option for you if you find it easier talking about a particular topic than writing about it. You can pick up a cheap tape recorder or use an MP3 player as most come with a record option now.

Choose a topic and just start talking about it as if you were explaining it to a friend. Once you begin talking the ideas will start to flow. Then listen to your tape and jot down and arrange the major points you made in order. Finally, add an introduction and a closing summary and you have another article.

Make Use Of A Ghost Writer

If you just do not have the time or are having a hard time writing articles you can still benefit from article marketing by hiring a ghostwriter. They will write unique articles for you that become your intellectual property. This means you can post them as your own work on your website, blog, as well as submit them to the article directories. Elance is a site where you can find a ghost writer plus there are also some freelance writers with their own websites out there and you can usually buy articles anywhere from $5 – $65.

Have Someone Else Turn Your Outline Into An Article

If you don’t want to do all the writing yourself, another option is for you to write a basic outline of the article and the point you want to bring across. Then jot down any ideas you have for the article and ask a friend or hire someone to flesh it out for you into an article. Since the content of the article was your original idea, you may be more comfortable with passing these articles off as your own as someone else just put it into an article format for you.

If you use the above tips for easy article writing there is no reason for you not to get started with article marketing one way or the other. The important thing is to get a few articles out there and you will see your search engine rankings and traffic increase.  I am sure you will be so impressed by the results you can get just from a handful of articles that you will be writing articles and submitting them on a regular basis to build your online business.
