Article marketing is such an incredible way to create qualified traffic online, and highly targeted traffic at that.
But you have to write about things you know about. And you need to write about things related to your web site topic. Sure, it may require some research, but it will be well worth your time.
It is certainly well worth your time if you are writing articles as an expert – and to do that, you have to learn about your topic – and then show others how to do it.
For example, in my case, it is list building. I have gotten pretty good at list building, and have been showing others how to do it – list building marketing. But you have to write articles in your own niche, teaching people how to do what you do well.
But I have found that the best place to do that is with people who are already list building. And in your case, the best person to write your article to, is the person who is already involved in your niche, in most cases. In my experience, beginners don’t really spend money – so I target people who are already involved.
So I write articles that are not geared towards the beginner, but towards the person who is already working the business.
I write ads that target the person who is already making money online, not the people who are simply hoping and dreaming. And you need to do the same thing – write to the people who are already spending money, or are most likely to begin spending money – and that is usually not the beginners, in my experience.
