Ten Top Tips For Good Article Writing For Promotion Of Your Business

Writing and distributing articles on the internet is one of the best ways to gain exposure for your business and gain new clients.

Even those that have never written an article before can do it. Keep in mind it doesn't have to be a novel. Most articles are between 400 and 1000 words.

10 Tips for good article writing:

Tip #1 ? Don't make your article a blatant advertisement for your services or product; keep it informative and helpful to your prospective readers and they will seek you out for more!

Tip #2 --Make it a "how to" or advise on a particular subject known well to you. You want to be the expert on this subject. For example, articles I write are normally on starting a business or book marketing. Then I send them to my website at http://www.publicity-VA.com to get additional information.

Tip #3 - Use your keyword phrases sprinkled throughout the article, here's a free keyword tool NicheBOT.com

Tip #4 - Proof read your article when complete, then proof read again, and then get someone else to proof it.

Tip #5 - Make sure when adding website address links that you use http://www.yoursite.com, not just www.yoursite.com. It's important for search engine recognition to have the http:// in front of it.

Tip #6 - Be sure to include at the bottom of your article an "Author Resource Block", which should include the following

Name
Company
Website
Email
Brief Blurb

Tip #7 -- Add at the bottom of the article that it is free to reprint and distribute as long as the author resource block stays in tack

Tip #8 -- Do a search on article submission websites to submit to. Here's a great list to get you started Article Submission Websites

Tip # 9 -- Try to submit your article to sites that have a 4 and up page rank and that use live links

Tip #10 -- Post your articles on your website

Now?.one article will be some what beneficial to promoting your online presense, but I suggest that you make article writing and submission an ongoing part of your marketing efforts, whether you write them yourself or hire an experienced copywriter to do it for you. You will be well on your way to gaining more online attention, targeted website traffic and positioning yourself as an expert in your chosen topic of knowledge.
