Introduction and Follow Up
I am pleased to have you as my reader for this new issue of the
Educational Martin Bigler Newsletter today. . Thank you for reading and
following my ideas and advise. For the past issues do download and safe
or re-reading, please see under 5) below.
Last time I wrote about overcoming distractions and how difficult it is
to stick to a plan, the won ideas, get started to do it and how to keep
focussed. If you are seriously building your online business, you at
least have had some thoughts on how to organise yourself and you have
put your ideas to paper already. That is the point to start today and
get your marked first priority done now.
If you looked at the PushButtonHealth re-opening web page, you could
see how effective and lucrative this fitness and health niche is. I am
not sure whether they still have some spots left to join. Here
is the link again. Just in
case you might be lucky to still get in.
Until now you should also have taken action and chosen your Clickbank products to market as an
Affiliate through your very own Lead Capture Page, as explained in an
earlier Newsletter which you can open here again.
Writing Articles – How To Do
Sharing your knowledge on the web is a very powerful way to establish
your online presence and credibility. First, you write a thoughtful and
informative article on a topic in your area of expertise. Then you
submit it to Article Directories (e-zines) to be read by the general
public and possibly re-published on other web sites.
At the end of your article is a resource box containing your name, a
brief promotional message and a link to your web site. Webmasters who
wish to reprint your article on their sites are required to include
your resource box along with any live links to your site.
This is the Resource Box I use for my own Articles:
Martin Bigler offers
Resources, Tools and Educational Content to
people build their internet
his Newsletter and Blog.
The benefit that you get from your article is two-fold.
- Your article will be read by visitors to the e-zine site. If they
helpful and interesting, they will likely
visit your web site to see
else you had to offer.
- Webmasters who find your article useful to their visitors may
it on their sites, giving your article
Every time your article is re-published on a web site, you gain an
additional one-way link to your site through the live link in your
resource box. This adds to your link popularity and ultimately
increases your search engine rankings. As you can see, the
true potential of your article lies in its ability to propagate virally
Keep in mind that your goal is hold your readers' attention long enough
for them to get to the resource box. If your
article is boring and uninformative, few people will read it beyond the
first or second paragraph.
These are the main points to consider when writing an article:
Give your article a catchy title
Your title is the first and often the only thing
that visitors see. Put some thought into coming up with a
title that grabs the reader's attention
right away. Words like "Secrets", "Free", and "Successful"
tend to attract more attention than others.
Your article should not read like an ad
What benefits does your reader want to
get out of an article? Cater to your
reader's interests rather than your own.
Offer lots of free, useful information
Keep in mind that your readers are
looking for specific "how-to" instructions to help
them achieve a certain goal. Offer
lots of tangible information that is immediately useful
Get to the point quickly, preferably in the first
or second paragraph. Avoid lengthy paragraphs. Use lots of
white space to separate
your paragraphs to make them easier to read.
Your article should not be too short
If your article is too short, however,
some webmasters may feel hesitant to reprint it on their
sites. They may, instead,
borrow your ideas and write their own article,
gaining authorship without having to give you
credit for your ideas. I suggest to write at least
800 words, preferably longer.
Longer articles give webmasters the impression that you
have put some thought and effort into your
work and, thus, are deserving of publicity on their sites.
Use clickable links in your resource box
Many e-zines permit clickable links in
resource boxes. Whenever permitted, you should spell out your
URL as well as make it
clickable so readers can go to your site simply by clicking on
it, and search
engines will be able to record it as a link your web site, adding
to your link popularity and search engine
Avoid hyping in your resource box
Your resource box, while promotional in
nature, should be brief and tasteful. The purpose of your
resource box is not to sell your
readers something, but to lead them to your website which does
the actual selling.
Put some thought and effort into your writing
Do a good job and be honest. If your
article comes off as half-baked, readers may make a similar
assumption about you and your
Submit your article to as many e-zines as feasible
There are dozens of e-zines on the web that
welcome submissions from independent authors. I
recommend that you first submit to only
a handful of the more popular ones.
I use Article
Submitter and Directory Submitter. However, if
you want to automate the whole process of article writing, re-writing
to up to 20 directories at a push of a button, then you should
check Mass Article Control. I use it
personally, it's just great!
But there are many, many more. Just do
some Goole Search and chose what you like.
Traffic Exchanges Explained
Traffic Exchanges are a useful tool to get traffic to your website.
However, it cannot be the only source for you to gain exposure to your
website. The best way to use
traffic exchanges is to attract people interested in your content
through a Squeeze or Lead Capture Page. After they have given their
name and email address, you guide them to your actual sales page. There
is more time to explain your business and to probably get a sale. On
the traffic exchange there are only 10-20 seconds loading time for your
