The short answer to that question is a resounding “YES”!
Writing Network Marketing articles is one of the many strategies that can bring leads and profits into your business. And article marketing happens to play a big role in all types of online marketing.
Here are just a few suggestions that can help you master the art of using article marketing as part of your network marketing strategy.
Let me share a short story with you about how I started using articles as part of my Network Marketing business strategy. After my son was born, I realized pretty quickly that I didn’t want to miss the precious years of his life while I was away at work in an office. So, I decided to figure out how to work from home and Network Marketing seemed to be my best option.
Like thousands of others, I spent lots of time, money and effort in training, e-books and other resources early on. After months of training and trying so many products and systems, reading books and watching videos, I sat down and took inventory to figure out what I was really good at.
Marketing your Network Marketing business can be done in a variety of ways. One key is to pick the one that works well with your personality and try to stick to it consistently. You can do other things along the way, but make sure you never leave out the activities that you like and excel at – as long as they are bringing you some results, of course. I actually like writing so one of my main strategies involves writing network marketing articles.
Now what you may not realize is. . . I just revealed one of the keys to successful article marketing. . . Did you catch that? Sure you did! I told you a true short story.
Your readers and potential business partners love true stories – and I emphasize the word “true”. And you’re going to have to trust me on this; people will be able to tell when you are stretching (or completely avoiding) the truth.
Make sure that your story is believable. That’s not too hard to do – just be honest. In the online world, that sometimes seems hard to do because everything is so hyped up. But telling the truth is actually easier than trying to invent something and your readers / potential leads will appreciate this.
Now let’s look at another fact about using network marketing articles as part of your strategy.
Most article marketing experts advocate that when you write articles you should keep the articles short and to the point, somewhere between 250 – 1000 words in length. Nowadays readers want their information as fast as possible. However, I would say that 250 might be a little short – the general consensus is to have a minimum of 500 words. Of course you want to be quick and to the point – But your article needs to be long enough to contain the valuable information that readers are looking for.
Many people are intimidated by the thought of writing Network Marketing articles (or any articles for that mattter). If you happen to be one of them, remember this. . .you do not have to be a great writer.
But you do not want to write any article without having some keywords in mind. Keywords are increasingly more important if you want your articles to be read. Make sure that your keyword (or keyword phrase) is in the title of your article and scattered throughout the body of the article in a natural way. Do not overuse the keyword as this could get you penalized by the search engines. It also helps to submit your article to the various sites that the search engines “like”.
If you don’t feel comfortable writing Network Marketing articles yourself, you can outsource the work to someone else without investing too much money. Take a look at Elance.com for this – There are many, many other outsourcing services available.
