Below are three different ways to develop content for your site.
The first and most effective strategy are articles.
Articles actually work for you in several ways.
a. Brands you as an expert so that customers come to you. b. Provides valuable content to your potential customers. c. Builds a relationship between you and your potential customers. d. Creates a viral marketing strategy for your site. e. Builds a linking strategy for you every time a webmaster publishes one of your articles.
No other strategy that I have employed has brought me more business than this one.
To find sites that accept articles, go here: http://www.jogena.com. This is one of sites that I use because it's one of oldest, and most reputable sites online for finding information on ezines. Unfortunately, there's no search, but everything is done by category, and information is comprehensive, so you will locate rather quickly what you are looking for.
However, if thought of writing your own content gives you nightmares, there's a way around this.
You can use public domain information. Public domain information is information that is free to use because it's in public arena, or copyright has expired.
To help you easily locate this information, I recommend that you download public domain toolbar. You can get it at Public Domain Forum - http://www.publicdomainforum.com/forum. You have to register for an account to get toolbar, but both forum account and toolbar are free. The toolbar is a very comprehensive resource of public domain sources.
The third content strategy you need to consider is blogging.
What a blog does is allows you to create search engine friendly content on your topic of interest. Combine this with an RSS feed, which search engines love, and you have a winning strategy.
Not only will it help you build content for search engines, but it can also help you raise your traffic and sales.
Here is a comprehensive ecourse that you can take that will drastically reduce your learning curve, as well as provide you with resources you need to implement this strategy.
Finally, to keep abreast of what's happening with search engines, you need to subscribe to Search Engine Watch - http://www.searchenginewatch.com. This site offers tons of resources, news, and a newsletter on search engine optimization.
Apply one, or all, of these search engine resources to your search engine strategy, and you can expect a major increase in your traffic and sales to your site.
