Article writing can be and is very tedious at times. Yet the rewards that come with a successful article writing campaign is unlimited. The benefits will be an increase in your website traffic, increase sales and a profound sense of accomplishments.
So how do you go about writing articles? To learn more about article writing, please read on. Every so often I am asked how many articles each week an article marketer should be engaged in writing. This could be because the asker is a beginner to article marketing, and views the task with a heavy heart. It`s a fact, article marketing does work, but unless you love to write, well.you hate to write them. That much would be considered obvious.
So, why the question? Clearly it is so the person asking the question will know exactly when to stop. Write no more and no less than is necessary to achieve successful results with the laborious efforts of article marketing, right? To write articles every day, especially if you are not used to it, or don't like to do it, would be the equivalent to dragging your lead bottom to the gym to work out. It can be a drudgery, whose very effort will drag every ounce of energy from the depths of your soul. Well, that's fine, but like working out, you know article marketing is good for you. It's certainly good for your business. In fact, to some, it is considered the lifeblood of one's business.
So, what do you do to get yourself motivated into following through with your article marketing strategy? The best thing to do, in keeping with the workout analogy, is to start small, build up that resistance to it, then gradually increase your output to a level that you are comfortable with. That threshold of tolerance could be different from person to person. Only you can find out what your article marketing threshold of output tolerance is.
Maybe one or two articles every week is all you can put up with. Fine. Run with that, but get familiar with all the steps in the process as you do, from idea brainstorming, through researching the topics, then tackle things one sentence at a time.
Step by step, speed up, until you are where you like yourself to be. That place will be where you are happy with the results of your article marketing efforts. The next phase of your tolerance build-up is getting involved in the article marketing submission process.
This means submitting your articles online to the top directories. It is important to take your time and get it right the first time because each article directory has its own terms and conditions for authors. Take the time to read through and familiarize yourself with each of the directories you will be targeting in your article marketing efforts.
Submit to them one at a time, making sure you do things right. Couple this process with increasing your article output, and combined these two activities will increase your results in your article marketing strategy. After a couple of weeks to a month at the most, you will find yourself pleased that you took the time to suffer through the effort. The bad news is that you will never be able to stop writing articles. Not if you want your article marketing to be worthwhile and produce the results you want in the form of targeted and converting traffic to your site or blog. But the more articles you write, the greater these results will be, and the easier article marketing, and in particular the writing side of it, will be.
Seeing those growing traffic numbers will be motivation enough to make writing at least three to ten articles a week seem like nothing at all. Of course, if you are that put off by writing articles, but still want to participate in article marketing, then you can always hire a quality article writer to take on the task for you, and you can have as many articles written as your budget allows.
