Marketing your new website without spending a lot of money is what most people want to do. The internet is built on information and this is the way that you can get traffic to your site.
Sign up with some article directories and start posting articles. The article directories are online sources for content that web developers and ezine owners are looking for. Getting your articles posted in the article directories has become a little bit harder due to the changes of some of the search engines.
Writing articles for the directories can be a long term traffic strategy. Create informative articles and hope that they will create more traffic for your sites. You don’t have to spend any money but it will take time to create articles that are interesting and provide just enough content to wet the appetite of the visitor to come to you site for more information.
You have to make the decision about how you are going to approach article marketing. Are you going to create general articles that will be popular for years to come or are you going to focus in on a niche market. Writing a bunch of articles about the 2011 NFL Playoffs may be a good traffic source for traffic for a few weeks, but what happens when the season is over. The traffic will probably start to slow as a new football season starts to get going. It might be a better strategy to focus on more evergreen topics that will be popular for years into the future.
Find the right blend between writing quick articles and writing informative and helpful content. You are really marketing with your articles. Are you going to write articles off the top of your head or are you going to sit and plan your article marketing strategy?
Article marketing might not deliver a lot of traffic to your site when you are just getting started. Using article directories may take consistent effort before you start to see any traffic.
