Looking to build your freelance writing career but don't know where to begin? Maybe I can help.
Let's start with a perspective on web exposure and your business. You know you're a wonderful writer. You know you can provide flawless copy for any number of industries!
But does anyone else on World Wide Web know?
Let's talk about page rank. If you have a website, how many visitors do you get per day? Have you ever typed your web link into Alexa.com Page Rank calculator? If so, what came up? Was it 9,547,893, or something equally upsetting?
As you may know, higher your page rank number, LESS visitors you're receiving.
Example: Alexa pagerank of 1 is usually either Google, Hotmail or Yahoo (this vascillates daily). That means that these three websites alternately swap title of Most Visited Website in World. Think you can get your website up there, or even close?
FACT: Not many writers with websites are getting much in way of web visitors. Most are getting buried by big dogs, or lost in Blogger land.
Recently, I tripped over a solution to significantly raise amount of visitors to my site. Then after I tripped over it, it took me four entire months to fully grasp concept.
Article Marketing can seriously improve your website rank, put your name out there in Internet Guru Land, and lure customers your way with scintillating copy that you include in your article!
For those who remain in dark, article marketing is like exalted link distribution. It's a way to pass your link on to thousands of websites - but in this case, you're not just another anonymous link. Attached to your link will be a free sample of your work, and a way to contact you directly.
The Article M.O.: Write an article, attach your website link and a short bio, and then submit to an article distribution website. Publishers will then come along and add your work to their website content. Interested readers will click it, and then they're back on YOUR website, learning about You and What You Do.
