PostHeaderIcon How To Submit Articles And Never Run Out Of Writing Ideas!

Coming up with a steady stream of article ideas on your topic is always a challenge. It doesn’t matter if you’re an article marketing newbie or a veteran with hundreds of articles under your belt–sooner or later you will think:

“I’ve written about everything I can possibly write about on my topic. What now?”

If you’re wondering how to submit articles when you think you’ve said it all, I’ve got 7 helpful tips for you.

1 – Use an automatic article submission service so that you can accomplish your article marketing goals while submitting fewer articles.

Everyone has creative dry spells now and then, but if you are submitting manually and are trying to write an article a day or more, you will run into that obstacle sooner than you have to.

There is no need to write dozens of articles a month. When you use an automatic article distribution service to have your article sent out to tons of publishers with the click of a button, each article works harder for you. Each article is republished on many sites instead of just a few, which means that you can see the results you’re looking for while submitting fewer articles.

This is the easy way to do article marketing–I’ve been submitting my articles automatically for several years now, and I find this method infinitely more effective and doable than submitting articles manually. I usually submit 8 articles a month. It’s much easier to come up with 8 article ideas than 30 plus!

Article marketing is a long term marketing tool which you will ideally use for the lifetime of your website. By submitting fewer articles, you stand a much better chance of being able to market your site with articles over the long term.

2 – Use a free article writing template. I have created several of these that I use on a regular basis. When I say “template”, I mean a step-by-step method for coming up with a unique quality article.

Here’s one of my favorites:

  • The Beginner’s Guide Article Template
  • Write an article for a person who is absolutely new to your niche. Avoid niche specific words that might be confusing to a newcomer. Go with the assumption that your reader has no knowledge about any part of your niche (other than to have a budding curiosity about it).

Title ideas:

  • The Beginner’s Guide to [your subject]
  • [Your subject] 101
  • Intro to [Your subject]
  • Cover these points:
  • What are the advantages of your niche?
  • Why are people usually interested in it?
  • What are the challenges?
  • Are there any action steps that a newbie could take to get started?

3 – Do you get any frequently asked questions from your customers?

If a question is being asked more than once, it is likely that many people are wondering the same questions. You can address common questions in your articles. Writing one article per question should give you enough ammunition to generate several articles.

4 – Do keyword research to see what types of topics your target readers are typing into Google. Write articles that answer/address those searches.

5 – Get ideas from your own blog or other blogs in your niche. Look at the comments that people leave for common questions and challenges that you can address your articles.

6 – Write a “How To” article that teaches your reader how to do something specific related to your niche.

7 – Solicit questions from your customers, your list subscribers, and your blog readers.

These are just a few ideas to help jump start your creativity and get the quantity of your article submissions down to a manageable level. We all experience periods when our minds draw a blank when we sit down to write. You have not run out of article ideas though!

Use these tips I’ve provided here and above all stick with your article marketing campaign.

PostHeaderIcon Are You Putting Enough Emphasis On Your Website Content?

Search Engine Optimization is a science which is perpetually in flux. With each new day come fresh announcements which claim to revolutionize not just the industry but also the internet at large. Alongside these announcements are an almost limitless stream of blogs and articles written by self-labeled ‘SEO Experts’ which purport to provide guidance as to the definitive strategy to put your website at the top of search results. Opinions differ greatly as to the importance of various on-page factors, the worth of links from directories and all manner of other factors, whether minor or major. The one thing which is consistent throughout all of these competing claims and assertions is that they should not be the basis of a complete overhaul of your existing SEO strategy. Not only is Search Engine Optimization a highly competitive arena but also one in which nothing can be known for sure: in fact there are so many variables that it is nigh on impossible to ascertain for sure why a website is or isn’t ranking as well as it apparently should.

Rather than claim that I have it from an informed source that Google’s search algorithm contains a specific command or that I can obtain your website as many back links as there are stars in the sky: I purely wish to share one idea, and it is by no means a new or original concept, just something which I fear many people have neglected in order to pursue quick fixes or forum derived trends. That one idea is that you spend some time on your website content. By this I don’t mean contact an overseas organization who will string together reams of text for next to nothing, nor am I referring to the practice of syndicating the work of others blindly. Using a word or page count as your only measurement of quality will count for nothing: in the long term, the short term, or any other time constraint you wish to consider.

Spending time on your website content will not only mean that your website is more likely to be visible in the results pages of searches for relevant long tail phrases (which as we know account for more than 70% of all searches made through Google), but actually makes your website itself considerably ‘better’. By ‘better’ I mean that people will be glad to have found it, visitors are more likely to pay attention to your message, and a prospective customer is considerably more inclined to make the transition to satisfied customer. In short, your website content is key in terms of getting people to your website, engaging them and converting them. Great content can serve the role of ‘link bait’ and engage people to the extent that they link to it, it can be published as an article or blog to elicit interest from 3rd party publishers, it can be used to generate traffic through social media sources and can persuade the undecided potential product purchaser of your credibility and service.

Personally I can think of no other factor which has anywhere near the same impact on the success of a website than its content. Best of all: it’s been that way for years and won’t be rendered pointless by the ‘next Google update’.
