5 Great Article Marketing Tips

Does your business need more visitors? If you said "Yes" to that question; then you might want to consider writing and distributing articles. I'm about to share with you a few article marketing tips that I have learned over the years.

The most important part of any article is the title; you must have an eye-catching title that will grab the readers attention and make them want to read the article. There are thousands of articles online and not all of them get read! In order to make sure your article gets read you need to have a title that will entice readers into wanting to find out more.

Another great tip when writing an article is to simply keep it simple. In other words try not to impress readers by using such big words that they would need to find a dictionarty just to read and understand what you are trying to tell them. By keeping it simple and using everyday words your article will be easier to read. The readers need to feel as if the words flow as they read the article.

Make sure your article is informative and not just a bunch of fluff that makes no sense. Readers are searching for information on the subject they are interested in and want to find out more about the topic they are looking for. By keeping your article informative and to the point your article will be read instead of just passed over.

Check your facts while researching material to include in your article. Don't just go by what someone wrote on "Wikipedia."
I usually go to 6 or 7 sites to learn more about the topic I am writing about. Writers are Readers who like to learn more about their subject.

Once you have finished writing your article you should set it aside and re-read it later. Come back to the article with a fresh mind and then read it and edit it if you need to. Always double check your articles before you send them off to be published.

Now let's recap what we have learned in this article:

1) Catchy Title
2) Keep it Simple
3) Informative
4) Check your Facts
5) Edit it
