When it comes to learning how to market yourself on the internet, things seem to come and go. First it was link farms, then it was forums. Article writing as a marketing method has been a round a long time and it is one that never seems to go away. In fact article marketing is one of the strongest methods of promoting yourself and your business on the internet.
The fact that it is a simple method of self advertising is one thing. But is also draws those that are interested in your articles to your website and introduces them to you and your business. The more you write and place articles out for distribution on article directories, the more exposure you are potentially going to get.
When someone picks up your article from a directory, uses of your article can be for print in newsletters, publications, on other websites and blogs as content and more. All of those articles contain your link to you and your business. This allows more exposure where you would not have been seen before.
Using article marketing in your direct sales and work at home business is a great tool for you too. People want to know how to use the product you sell. They want to learn more about the things that you know. Start slowly and develop your craft. You may find that you enjoy it and I know you will enjoy more dedicated traffic to your website or blog.
