One of the most effective online marketing methods in use today is Article Marketing. Article marketing consists of writing articles related to your website and then distributing them through article directories with an Author’s Biography Box at the end which includes a link to your website.
Article marketing is free, but if you have written good articles which are also properly search engine optimized then you can get great results from this online marketing method. Article marketing is a type of advertising in which businesses write short articles related to their respective industry and is basically another way to drive free traffic to your website.
Articles are a perfect way to focus your website marketing on the full range of your most relevant keywords and is one of the most powerful skills you can learn to promote your online business. Article marketing is one of the more effective ways to boost your revenue and add exposure for your product and web site without excessive amounts of time or money being sacrificed.
It’s a great way to generate traffic, but if you’re not using proper SEO techniques in your articles, you’re wasting most of your time and effort. Article marketing is arguably one of the most powerful niche marketing tools available online. Articles can be on almost any subject. From technical articles about specific products to opinions on the best ways to monetize your website and they allow you to place your identity all over the internet.
Articles are read by interested customers who are looking for information on your chosen topic or niche. They give you a reputation as an expert and grow your business accordingly. Unfortunately the quality of articles can suffer if the author concentrates too much on keyword content at the expense of quality.
So placing links within articles that are focused on the same subject matter as your website is a perfect way to increase their placing in the eyes of the search engines as long as it’s done correctly. If the search engines find hundreds of duplicates of your articles you will not get credit for the links on most of your submissions and this will severely limit the impact of your article marketing.
Over time, a Website or Blog will gradually get more and more traffic, and if you properly monetize the website, that traffic converts into pure profit. Content is king and the more articles you add, the more traffic you will get. Thus, continuously adding articles is an excellent way to optimize your website for search engines, which are a prime source of traffic.
Many people use article marketing successfully in order to drive traffic to their main website. However, others have found that it is also very profitable to use article marketing to drive traffic to various affiliate programs in order to determine which will be the most profitable.
If you try article marketing and drive targeted traffic to a niche website you will be able to find out in a short period of time if it is worth pursuing. Another viewpoint is that having articles on your site written by others can also bring traffic. It can drive traffic to your website, but it can also help you grow as a marketer and help establish your brand.
Article Marketing is a practice that no Webmaster, Blogger or Internet Marketer should ignore. It is a great tool that can promote you from the bottom rung to being on top of your game in short order and is just one weapon you should have in your website promotion arsenal.
Article marketing is probably the most effective link building tactic in existence today and is in many regards the perfect online marketing strategy for those who have more time to spend than money.

This is my new Blog and having been away from it for a couple of years it’s great to be back because I really enjoy it. Just to tell you something about myself, my wife and I are currently working with Autistic adults in the state of Maine and we love it. Although we’re from Canada, originally from Newfoundland, this is our second stint working in Maine and the two men we are working with this time around are great. We’ve become very attached to these young men and we consider ourselves to be a family. Actually our job title is that of Therapeutic Foster Parents and of course we take it very seriously. One of the main reasons we take it so seriously is that we are advocates for these young men because at times they can’t speak for themselves.
The sad part about our job here in Maine is that we have to leave the country after 18 months. The reason for this being the company who hired us and sponsored us into the US could only get us into the country by way of a Training Visa with the main condition being we have to leave after 18 months. We were here under the same circumstances in 2007 and had to leave the guys we were caring for at that time at the end of 2008.
This of course was very difficult for the three men we were working with and living with at the time and it was also very difficult for us because we became very attached and as I mentioned earlier we became a family. One of the main benefits of coming back is that we get to see the guys we worked with on our first visit and we also get to do what we enjoy which is caring for and helping these young men.
Because of our love for what we do and for the people we work with I will be dedicating a Page on this website to Autism and to the people who live with it on a daily basis. I’m hoping this will help educate people who aren’t familiar with what is fast becoming a global concern and help to raise funds for research.
The other objective of this website is to offer Home Business advice and present opportunities to people who are interested in making a legitimate living by working from home.
I’m hoping to have a great deal of relevant content added soon and I hope people will make it a point to visit often. Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to read this information.
The following two videos should give you some idea of the majestic beauty of Newfoundland:
I’ve added a video below, one of which is actually an advertisement by a local brewery located in St. John’s, Newfoundland which is where I’m from. But it contains some great shots of the area and I like to think portrays what we, as Newfoundlanders, are all about: People who care about people, who work hard and play hard but aren’t afraid to laugh at ourselves. In the following videos you will see many examples of this outlook on life as portrayed by local entertainers performing at what we call “Kitchen Parties”.
These are events where neighbours come together to have a few drinks and entertain one another through song and dance. Please take the time to have a look.
