You've finally done it! You've written your article, looked it over, tweaked it ....and looked it over... again and now...you are ready to publish! Now what?
Two things need to be added to your article. A how to publish statement that is added just before your article and your resource box or bio added at end of your article.
Here is an example of a how to publish statement:
"Please feel free to publish this article on your web site and/or in your e-book or newsletters with authors resource box included and without any changes to article. (Add your contact e-mail)"
If you would like to be notified if they are using your article, add "A complimentary copy of your ezine or notification you are using this article would be appreciated."
At end of your article is your resource box or bio. This is a powerful marketing tool within itself. Here you want to give your readers valuable information about your web site, yourself and-or your services.
An example using my resource box or bio can be seen at end of this article.
Next, begin submitting your article to article submission sites. These sites are specifically for articles and are where ezine publishers and web masters go for free content for ezines and web sites.
Below are a few sites to get you started. The first few Article Submission Sites are Yahoogroups. You have to be a member of group and each group will have a subscribe address. Joining and submitting is very easy. Just go to their site and follow from there.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/article_announce http://groups.yahoo.com/group/aabusiness http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ap-shorts --400 words or less http://groups.yahoo.com/group/free-content
A search on Yahoogroups for article submission sites specific to targeting types of reader you are seeking will generate a multitude of sites to submit to.
The next few groups are specific online sites for submission. Once you are on their site, there are directions for submitting your article. Again submission is very easy.
