Why do Article Marketing
Article marketing can be very rewarding if you can either write really good articles or write them fast. It's better is you write good ones, but if you keep writing them you will improve. So, if you're discouraged about how bad your articles are doing, no views or click through's etc. don't lose all hope, in time they do get better.
Article marketing can also be very profitable, however, we once again need to consider how good the article is written. Do you have a compelling title? What about the resource box, does it make a person hungry for your offer or product?
Another issue is search engine optimization. Is your article keyword rich? If not, in no time it will get lost in the abyss of cyberspace.
When you write your article you need to keep all of these things in mind. You just can't space out and write whatever you want and expect it to bring in money, traffic, fame and fortune. It needs to be well thought out or it's worthless.
You also need to think in terms of mass production. I see people all the time who think they can write 10 articles and get rich! Do you know you may have to write thousands of articles to be successful at article marketing? It's true.
If you don't believe me go to the Warrior Forum and check out Steven Wagenheim's posts. He is a article marketing guru that makes a six figure income, but he's written literally thousands of articles and climbing.
It's a hard pill to swallow because article marketing can be hard work and nobody likes that. It's also very time consuming, unless you outsource it then you don't know if you'll get a well written article or if they'll take off with your money and get nothing.
The good news is that article marketing is worth it if you continue to improve your writing skills or find a great ghost writer.
I love article marketing. Yes, I've had my share of dud articles that's for sure, but I've also had good ones. Some of them I thought were going to be duds did well and vice versa. You have to test the market and in the process you get tested yourself. Then somewhere along the line you become a proficient article marketer.
I'm not there yet, but I plan to be. The more you write the better you write just like anything else. I'm saying this because people give up too easy and become article marketer statistics. Don't give up and you will be a successful article marketer.
