Your articles should make your readers want to take some sort of action. Readers would love to solve their problem in a few, simple steps, but they are savvy enough to know that they are probably not going to find all their answers that easily. It is important to know ahead of time, what the main objective of your article will be. Apply this to your article in such a way that readers are led into a sales funnel with promises of a solution. In order to sell your articles, buyers need to be able to find them. Placing articles on the most popular directories is a good way to do this. This will give your articles a good shot of being listed in the search engine results. If you choose to share content, see how the person with whom you are sharing intends you use your content. Also, make sure your contract allows you to retain certain rights as the original author. Some webpages make you sign your articles, you need to know this before you sign a contract. You should use “no follow” links if you want users to leave comments on your page. When users leave comments that are spam, web crawlers can be alerted that such links should not be followed. This will prevent you from linking to spam sites that can and may negatively affect the reputation of your own site.
With article marketing it is important to submit your articles to both article directories and blogging networks. Blogging has increased in popularity recently. If you can start in a high trafficked site, you will see an increase in traffic to your website. Be sure and include your bio and link back with each article so readers can visit your website.

You need to find the right solutions so that they can solve a specific problem. This shows that you can help your customers before they’re invited to your website in order to sell them an item. This shows you care about them.
