There are lots of articles floating around online and some people think it might be a bit too much for everyone. Analysts say we are in a content overload period and they might be right but there are still ways to get people to see what you are all about when it comes to article writing.
Here are some recommendations of how to get people reading your articles:
Take your article and find some niche forum websites and start a new thread with it. You might want to reach out to the forum or possibly comb through the guidelines to make sure it is ok but if it is a well written article it will create some really nice discussion.
Take the link the article sits on and push it through your social bookmarking websites like Digg, Mixx and Delicious. There are many more you could be running the piece through but those are just a few so you get the idea. Social bookmarking is great for market penetration in the search results.
Post your article in your Twitter account even if you only have a few followers. Twitter feeds have plenty of benefits other than just having followers click and travel over to your website. Twitter postings are now also making their way into search results feeds, other websites and they come up when people search directly through the platform.
Don’t forget about Facebook either. Whether you have a personal page only or a Facebook fan page you can push that article through either area to increase exposure. You will get some members of your audience that will only give you the time of day if they see you using Facebook to communicate with your audience.
Really put some thought into marketing your article a bit further into your community. The initial platform it sits on might be a great spot for the article but often times you can gain much more leverage from your article if you just take the time and explore some other opportunities online where you can push the material out a bit further.
