Does Article Marketing Still Work?

I have been seeing many people on the web lately asking if article marketing still works.  I would have to say that it would depend on the results that you are looking for and the purpose.

Here is what I mean.  If you are article marketing strictly to gain traffic to your website or blog, it will take you a lot of time and a considerable amount of articles in order to get a decent amount of traffic to your site.

If you are using this method as a backlinking strategy, you can gain a lot of good backlinks from high page rank (PR) sites.  This will help your site rank in the major search engines where you can get a lot of good organic traffic.

The best thing that you can do when article marketing is to be consistent because the steady feed of work will grow your site over time, making it a permanent fixture on the net.

When all of this is done, you will definitely see the financial reward in the end.  If you want this site to be a long-term sustainable business, than slow and steady wins the race…

Your Article Marketing Plan

If you decide that you want to get started in Internet Marketing and you don’t want to break the bank with paid methods like PPC, than you need an article marketing plan.

You can utilize article marketing as a free strategy so that you can test the waters safely.  But don’t fall into the trap that most people fall into where they believe that they will see success quickly and when they don’t they give up.

With articles you must give it time and be consistent with submitting on a regular basis.  This method will increase your website traffic gradually and by a large amount if you work at it.

What you need is a plan.  Sit down and write it out.  I know that you probably believe that you don’t need to do this but trust me, you do!  Something mysterious happens when you write things down.  Things have a much better chance to come to life when placed in print.  I believe that it forces the subconscious to realize that you mean business and when it believes, anything is possible.

Your plan doesn’t have to be like homework.  It just needs to be a course of action.  You see, it’s the action that causes creation.  Make an outline of how many articles that you want to write per month.  Then break that down into days and then into how many articles you can write in an hour.

Then figure out how many articles that you can submit to the various article directories.  If you decide to create a lot of articles, submit a different article to each directory and target different anchor text keywords in each article.

Before you know it you will be getting a steady stream of traffic to your website and making sales of your own product or of an affiliate product.

Do you have questions about your article marketing plan?  If so, be sure to leave a comment and I’ll be sure to help you out as best as I can.
