So you want to use article marketing as a means of bringing traffic to your website, but you don’t know a thing about writing an article? Or perhaps you have no idea where to start? Well, if you know how to write an email, then you will definitely be able to write an article… all it takes is a little practice! Still unsure where to begin? Here are some steps you can take in order for your article marketing ideas to start flowing:
Step #1: Find Your Niche
This is one of the most first and foremost important step that you will need to figure out before you can begin writing your article, as it would determine the type of audience that you will get.
For instance, if you were going to promote a product for skin care, then your target audience would be interested in the beauty niche. If you are going to promote a product on dog treat recipes, then your target audience are dog lovers and you would be in the dog training niche. If you are still unsure, then just choose a product and stick with it. Determine its niche, and you would have your first step done.
Step #2: Find a Problem Faced By Your Audience
This is one of the best article marketing ideas that I’ve come across, and now I’m handing you the secret. Once you have found your niche, you would know what your readers have in common. So now, what kind of problems are they facing?
Are they looking for some natural solutions to remove their pimples and have radiant skin at the same time? Or maybe they are having a problem training their dogs to come when called? From your niche, think up a problem that your target audience will most likely face and have to solve. Once you have found a problem, it is time for Step #3 to generate your article marketing ideas…
Step #3: Research and Rewrite the Solutions
Now comes the fun part of acquiring article marketing ideas! All you have to do is by using problem faced by your audience, go to Google (or any search engine that you use), and type in the problem in the form of a question. The solutions will appear in the search results; so all you have to do now is read about 5 to 6 articles and digest the information, taking about 3 to 4 random tips from those article.
After that, open a word document and start writing everything you have just read in your own words. If you find that you don’t have enough words, add more tips to be shared with your audience. Unsure about the introduction and the ending? Go back and read those articles again to get the gist of how they start, and then rewrite them in your article.
