This article is intended to show a relatively inexperienced article marketer how to get the biggest bang for their buck from their article writing efforts. If you have prior experience in this field you may still find this article more beneficial than you imagine.
The initial objective is to write and submit 12 articles to article directories. If you are already a published online author, keep reading. If you are new to article marketing you can do this as you go. There is no reason to have 12 published articles before you get started.
Step 1: Article Exposure x 3
You are the author of each and every article you pen. You therefore have the complete and total discretion to submit your articles to as many article directories as you wish provided you do not violate a directory’s terms and conditions. These are the top five based on traffic according to Alexa.com.
I recommend Ezine Articles, Buzzle, and Isnare.com. Why these three directories in particular? Isnare isn’t even in the top five. There is a method to my madness. Read on.
Submit your articles to all three directories as you write them. It takes a lot less time to post an article you have already written then it does to write another one from scratch. For just a little more effort you will have established three times the presence on the internet.
Each of these article directories has their own little quirks. Their review times vary. But if you’re serious about making money online you’ll muddle your way through with a little effort.
Step 2: The Power of The Button. Putting Your Articles on Steroids.
Just what is The Button? And why does it have so much power? I’m about to tell you.
The button is a Book Mark & Share web browser plug-in available at Onlywire.com. Once your articles start to go live, this button is invaluable.
steroids for sale the home page you will find a prompt box that reads; Set Up Your Book marking Sites. It will take you to the book marking set up page. Join each of the sites on the page. Skip any book marking site that don’t appear appropriate to your advertising needs (high tech and medical sites). If you are already a member of a particular site, simply fill in your user name and password. The initial setup is a bit tedious. But it is well worth the effort.
After you’ve finished, go back to Home and click on For Your Web Browser. You will be instructed on how to add the Onlywire button to your favorite web browser. You now have the ability to bookmark your articles to the following sites with the push of a button;
Ask, Bibsonomy, Blinklist, Blue Dot, BookmarkSync, Connotea, del.icio.us, Digg, Diigo, Facebook, Furl, Google Bookmarks, Jumptags, Mixx, MySpace, My Web Yahoo, Propeller, Reddit, Simpy, Spurl, Stumbleupon, Technorati, and Twitter.
Book marking articles is labor intensive and time consuming. Once the process is automated, it can be done in a matter of seconds.
A couple of these sites need be finalized to complete the submission process, but this can be done quickly right from the Onlywire home page. There a few that I have not been able to successfully book mark using Onlywire. The most notable is Facebook.
