I’ve always thought one of the coolest aspects of starting an online business is the number of ways you can generate traffic to your website and some of them are free. I can’t think of any place else where you could literally start a million dollar business for no money at all. One of the best free methods online is article marketing. If you’re one of those people who are convinced that they can’t write but want to take advantage of the benefits of article marketing, there are many article marketing service companies online that would love to assist you, for a price of course.
One of the biggest benefits of article marketing is that you get to shine. You can show the people who read your articles that you are an expert. You can gain virtually instant credibility. The goods news is for those of you who are ‘writing challenged’ that a marketing service can do as little or as much as you want them to.
For example, you can hire a company that will write all your articles for you but you can then distribute them to article directories yourself. This is time consuming but if you’re on a limited budget and just can’t stand the idea of writing but still need to save some money this may be a good option for you.
You can get the whole package and have the company write and distribute your articles for you. In most cases they can even help you with finding the right keywords to target in the articles.
Besides the obvious time saving advantage of going this route, the company will probably know about more online article directories and other sites that will accept original content. Sure, it’s all online and you could find out about these sites too, but it would take a lot of your time. For many, it just makes more sense to streamline their online business as much as possible and that means hiring a firm to take care of all the ‘grunt’ work.
Before you pull out your credit card, make sure the company you are considering is qualified and reputable. One way to do that is to check for testimonials right on their website. Do they have a lot of them? Of course you have to be aware of the fact that a company will only list their best testimonials and the negative ones will most likely end up being destroyed, still this can be a good place to start.
Also compare the rates and service plans of several companies. Don’t settle for the first one you find. Make sure that you carefully consider what each company will do as well as how much it will cost you.
If you want to take full advantage on all the traffic and credibility that article marketing can offer, but just don’t have the time to do it yourself, you should consider finding a good article marketing service. This is an excellent option for anyone who has more money than time when starting their online business.
