Article Marketing: Revised

SubmitYourArticle.com started 10+ years ago as the world’s first automated article distribution service and made a huge impact on online marketing worldwide.

Article marketing became an industry in its own right, millions of articles were submitted worldwide, article directories burgeoned everywhere, and numerous competing article distribution services sprung up and borrowed our model.

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts through our own editorial controls, spam content also proliferated. This gradually decreased the effectiveness of article marketing over the years and forced Google into numerous algorithm updates such as Panda and Penguin.

Of course, written content is more important than ever …

But you have to use it in the most effective way to meet the changing online environment.

So how should you now approach creating content, for the purposes of growing traffic, building your online visibility, and putting your business in front of people you want to attract?

This post examines a revised approach to article marketing that I’d strongly recommend.

SubmitYourArticle.com Purges Low Quality Article Directories … And Puts You In Control

Go back two or three years, and all anyone seemed interested in was quantity.

Get your articles on to as many article directories as possible. Get as many links out there as possible. Don’t worry about the quality.

Talking of quality, who cares about the quality of the content you’re sending out? It’s all about the links, links, links …

Now only the ill-informed still pursue those goals …

So what’s changed?

Auto-Registration For Article Directories Now Available

We’ve just introduced a facility to allow you to auto-register with the top tier article directories in our network.

Previously, members had to manually register with each article directory, which obviously took time and was a fairly tedious chore. It also had to be repeated whenever you wanted to add a new pen name.

In contrast, you now need to simply tick the article directories you want to register for, enter the email address you want to register with, and we’ll then auto-register you.

You’ll see progress on the screen, and once finished we’ll let you know if there’s anything further you need to do before we’re able to submit, such as verify your email address.

Of course, you can also register manually if you’d prefer, or if you already have account(s) with any of the top article directories listed, you can simply enter your existing login details on the screen.

Common Article Marketing Mistakes: Mistake #1 Not Doing Keyword Research (It’s An Easy Fix!)

Recently I was telling you about the 17 most common article marketing mistakes, and the very first one we listed was the mistake of not doing any keyword research before starting to submit articles.

For those who are totally new to article marketing, let’s start at the beginning:

17 Common Article Marketing Mistakes (And How To Avoid Them)

Because we are all human, it’s inevitable that every person who does article marketing will screw up every once in a while. In coming up with this list of common article marketing mistakes, for a good many of them I simply thought back on my own innocent blunders as I was getting started. Because I read so many articles each day, I also get a daily reminder of the kinds of things that trip up a lot of people.

When I see people making these mistakes, I empathize. I’ve been there too!

There are two major perks to making mistakes–if you learn from them you get better at what you do, and you can also pass on your hard won knowledge to others so that they don’t have to walk the crooked path that you stumbled down. That is what I’m hoping to do with this next series of posts– I want you to learn from my mistakes and from the mistakes of many before you.

Article Writing Tips: How To Write An Article That Solves A Small Problem (And Makes A Big Difference!)

Your first order of business when writing an article is to select a topic. All of the articles that you write will be related to the topic of your website. For example, if you’re an accountant, then the general topic of your website is “accounting” and all of your articles will be about some aspect of accounting. If your website is a collection of chocolate recipes, then all of your articles will be about chocolate in some way. You get the idea…

But how can you figure out a specific topic to cover in your article?

There are tons of things you could write about, so how do you choose?

New To Writing Articles? 8 Steps For Writing Your First Free Reprint Article (It’s A No-Brainer!)

I once heard a wise person say that you can accomplish any challenge, as long as you break it down into small enough steps.

That advice made sense to me and gave me new hope for accomplishing some things that I had been putting off (and dreading) doing. So often we’re faced with doing things that we’re not used to doing, and we never begin because we feel so overwhelmed from the onset. I know it’s that way for some of you who are just starting to write articles for article marketing.

You may have never written an article before in your life. Perhaps the last time you wrote anything more formal than an email was when you were in school. Today I’m hoping to break down the challenge of writing your first article into small steps.

Each step builds on the others before it, and by doing each one of these very small steps you will end up with a finished piece of content that you can submit as a free reprint article.

Is Your Article Topic New To You? How To Write About An Unfamiliar Topic (4 Tips!)

Here was a question I received from a reader:

What about some advice for someone like me who has just landed a marketing job where she doesn’t know much about the product?  I’ve been used to writing articles on finance. Now I’m with a company that sells photography equipment, but chiefly digital memory. I’m not a photographer, and there’s a limit to what you can say about digital memory. So far I’ve been limited to committing the cardinal sins of pushing products and bringing up the company. I want to sign up for SubmitYourArticle.com, but with so little to write about so far, I’m stuck. Hayulp!

I’m so glad that you asked me this. So often we imagine that people who are writing free reprint articles know their topics inside and out, but there is also a good number of people who have the challenge of writing on topics that they’re totally unfamiliar with. Today I’ll give some tips for writing articles on hard or unfamiliar topics:

Creating Memorable Articles: 5 More Tips For Writing Stand-Out Content (Reader Feedback!)

A couple weeks ago, many of you were gracious enough to respond to my request for your feedback on what you think makes a great article. I think it’s so helpful to change our perspective from the usual one of the writer and to step back now and again to remember what it feels like to be a reader.

Are we creating articles that we would be attracted to if we were searching for information on our topic? It’s a question that makes you say, “Hmm…” and start to see the content you produce from a different point of view.

I picked out 10 major points from the feedback that you provided about what you think makes a great article, and last time we covered the first 5 points. As a recap, the first 5 tips we covered last time were:

1 – The Article Should Provide Practical, Useful Information That Will Improve The Life Of The Reader In Some Way.

2 – The Article Is Not Too Long And Is Easy To Read.

3 – The Writing Reveals The Personality Or Feelings Of The Writer (Depending On The Topic).

4 – The Article Should Provide Explicit And Strong Instructions On How The Teaching In The Article Can Be Applied To The Reader’s Life.

5 – The Article Needs To Have A Catchy Title That Clearly Pertains To An Area Of Interest Of The Reader.

Now, let’s take a look at the rest of the tips that YOU came up with (which I heartily agree with!):
