You’ve probably heard all the hype about taking your company to the Internet and how it can create a windfall of additional revenues. Most companies today are getting smart and implementing an online component to doing business because it reaches more consumers. Today’s consumers are web-savvy, using search engines and mobile devices to find the information, services and products they want to buy.
Aside from building a good looking website, as a business owner, do you really know what you can do to attract visitors to your website so that they can learn more about what you have to offer?
Article Marketing is one of the hottest ways to get the word out about your website and get more search engines pointing visitors in your direction. The smartest business owners know that search engines use a keyword system to crawl the Internet for websites relevant to the keywords being typed in by consumers. Being able to capture those keywords and effectively implement them into the content you create is called Search Engine Optimization or SEO. This is the secret to success with online efforts.
Article marketing then takes it one step further—by distributing your SEO articles
in directories, blogs, websites and social media networks you will extend your reach even further than one website can accomplish. It’s like giving you an entire sales team working 24/7 for you, grabbing consumers’ attention and bringing them to you so that they can find your website and choose you over all the competitors.
Now, if you want to take things one step higher, start writing a Blog or a series of blogs about your company. Once you earn customers, you need easy ways to keep them interested in what you are doing, week after week. Keeping a blog is becoming the preferred way that many bright business owners are using to maintain an active customer base. Not only is it easy to maintain, but it’s free, fun and keeps those search engines busy. Blogs can be a great way to learn more about your customers and share what you are doing so that they tell others about your business.
The best approach to online marketing is a combination of article marketing and blogging. By using articles
, you can kill two birds at once for your efforts. Simply post your articles on your blog, then post them on article directories, forums and social networks with backlinks to your company website and any promotions you want to highlight. Your articles and blog posts will be picked up by consumers who will most likely share them with others, bringing you more business than ever before.
