Could Article Marketing Be THE Perfect Marketing Strategy?

Today over at, I wrote about article marketing. As my little article marketing contest is showing quantifiable results, I thought, "Hmmm, mabye it's time to revisit this old lover!" Read When Article Marketing is THE Perfect Marketing Strategy to find out if you should give this "ex" a chance.

Article Marketing Contest Update: It's 10:48 pm EST and I'm about to submit the article Avoid High Gas Prices: 3 Easy-to-Start, Online Work-from-Home Careers to right now. It's a "link bait*" article I fired off last week, but contained an interesting bit of info freelance writers should take encouragement in, as I note below. Want to know more about article marketing?

Why SEO Writers Will Never Be Out of Work

FYI, did you know that conservatively (as I wrote in the above-referenced article), it is estimated that about 100,00 new websites are added to the web each day. Most of these are businesses. And, what do they need to get noticed? Content. The smart ones soon figure out that they need SEO content, ie, content that allows surfers to find them online.

So you see SEO writers -- we'll never be out of work!

*Note: I'll talk more about link bait writing on Friday. No post tomorrow, I have a client's website to finish up -- I'm sssooooooo behind!

Hi, Yulanda:
I've been lurking for awhile. I believe i found your blog through FWG.

Your article marketing contest has caught my attention, but i've not had the time to jump in.

Will follow it, if i can get in, i will. If not, maybe your next one.

I believe article writing is a solid technique in online marketing. I need to do more of it.

Thank you Missy for being a reader. As for the article marketing contest, I understand how hard it is to do an article a day -- I'm having trouble keeping up with it!

But, it is an effective strategy, so do try to implement it as part of your marketing plan as much as you can. Even one a week is effective. It will take longer to see results, but as my mom used to say, time is going to pass -- it's up to you what you do with it.
