Good Etiquette For Article Marketing

Using proper etiquette will ensure the best possible result for your efforts.

Article marketing has proven to be an effective way to promote business as either retail or online. A good presentation can increase branding for your online business as well as create consumer confidence which will ultimately increase orders.

Here are a few simple guides to follow when you engage an article marketing campaign.

  1. Using clarity keeps the readers attention.
  2. Do not use clarity to the point of terseness. Being personable is also consider polite.
  3. Features should be (between 400 and 700 words), as people simply scan until they find what they are looking for.
  4. Use headings to assist your readers scanning your article.
  5. For ease of reading online, keep the sentences and paragraphs on the short side.
  6. If you are not comfortable writing your own content then use someone else to do it for you. Make sure they know the type of writing you require and the parameters you need them to adhere to.
  7. YOU should check your articles for typos, poor grammar and inadvertent plagiarism.
  8. Ensure the content of the document reaffirms the meaning of the title of the article to avoid misleading your readers.
  9. If you plan to use your publications as thinly veiled sales pitches your are wasting your time. The public is now too educate and advertising savvy to be taken in by this old ploy.

Research Your Topics

Readers can pick off a weak presentation very easily. Choose your topics according to the current trends of what is happening in today's affairs. Research the topic even if you are familiar with it as there is always something more than what we have retained or perhaps not kept up with.

Take the time to develop a proper presentation. Rushing generally creates a sloppy read and your viewers will start to consciously avoid your publications.

Keep records of where you have placed your features.

If you are serious about this type of marketing you should keep records of where the publications were place and the date. You will remember for a while but after 6 months to a year you are going to find you don' remember all of them. It can be quite surprising when visiting them after a long spell to see how they have been received.

You should also keep a record of the response you received to each article. This will tell you of the readers interest in a topic, or the lack thereof. It will also tell you if you are receiving any results to the prime reason you are doing this to begin with - the Return on Investment for your business or your website.

Even with using best practices for article marketing, patience is a necessary virtue as it takes times to come to fruition.
