Then again maybe you have no problems writing articles but instead don't feel they are worth time and effort required.
Writing articles is VERY MUCH worth effort! Here are just a few ways:
More content for your website
Keyword rich content to feed search engines
When someone else publishes your article on their site or in their newsletter you get more traffic, more exposure for you and your site, and more links to your website
And once you put together an article you can benefit from it for many months to come. I get email asking permission to reprint articles that I wrote over a year ago!
The information is still just as relevant now as it was back then, but point is that minimal effort I put into it is rewarding me over a year later.
How many banner ad campaigns can promise that?
Also, many people don't realize that you can even benefit from posting other author's articles on your site.
I'm not saying pretend they are yours, that will get you in trouble. What I mean is that you can pick up additional search engine traffic because their articles will have keywords in them. Add some good meta tags to pages and submit away.
I have a couple of articles on my site written by various authors that happen to rank very well for certain keywords.
Since articles are related to my site content, this is free targeted traffic, and I didn't even have to go through effort of writing articles.
So get over your fears, get prepared for writer's cramp, and dive into one of greatest traffic generators for 2001!
