Article Marketing Shotgun Style
Author: Grant Gerver
It might serve me better if I wrote articles about just one major topic, theme or niche. But, there's no way I can be corralled. I have to write
about things that inspire me to risk boring you to tears. And, that includes a wide and varied amount of subjects. I'm a "shotgunner" all the
Article marketing is huge these days for online business promotion. You write about your specialties, and when you've had enough
articles approved by whichever service you're using, you can attain "expert" status. It's a goal I've been able to achieve relatively easily
because, as you'll soon see if you take this route in marketing your business, it's highly addictive. And, the more you do it, the better you
become at expressing yourself. Well I hope that's been the case for me.
The good news is that no service I use costs a cent. They use your stuff to advertise and that's how they make their money. You get
"paid" by being able to include your business, website, or whatever, in links at the bottom of your articles in what is commonly referred to
as a "resource box." Essentially, it's the "About the Author" section. If you've got the time and the will to do it, the exposure you can gain
for yourself and your promotional target can be great. The search engines are always looking for new content. And, I've noticed that when
I submit an article and it's approved, it hits the search engines very rapidly.
You do not have to be an expert in any field or subject area to write articles. Just write about what you know. Or, if a news item resonates
with you, do some research and write it in your own words. I can be "worked up" to write yet one more article very easily. I just let ideas
come to me. I really don't have to search for them. I'll be laying in bed, ready to jump up and get busy when a good idea will strike.
Believe me, the more you do this, the easier it becomes. I always prefer shooting straight from the hip without having to do much
research. But, any way you go about it
