What is Article Marketing?

The simplest way to describe the phenomenon known as article marketing is that it is a type of advertising, generally now online. With the introduction of the internet, it has never been easier to promote and advertise your product and service and Article Marketing is one way, possibly the easiest way, of doing it.

The basic way that one can explain Article Marketing, is to say that a small article is written and then submitted to the business industry that it relates to. Or, the article to be submitted over the internet, to article directories, or other web sites that, again, the short piece of writing relates to.

Once the article is written, it is distributed and publicized in the market place with one goal in mind: gaining readers. The more people that read it, the more people that are likely to want to know more and may go on to hire or purchase the product or service that you have advertised in the article, making it a great investment of your time and if you have paid for the article to be written for you, your money as well!

This style of marketing has the potential to gain the author of the article business credibility as well as obtaining possible new customers or clients. It is commonly known as free press space, especially seeing as article marketing has moved on from its traditional forms of paper print to the wonderful world on the internet, and is great for any business with a low budget for their advertising sector. With the increase of e-commerce and online marketing, it would be silly not to take up the offer of advertising with your articles online!

One thing that you need to bear in mind when considering using Article Marketing as a way of promoting your business or service, is that you will need to spend the time to write the article, or pay the small fee that it will cost to have it written for you. You also need to ensure that the article itself is up to scratch before submitting it otherwise, you will have wasted time and maybe money, to get little, or even no, possible new customers at all! However, if the article is well written, and the readers visit your link, you will get increased traffic to your website. And that can only mean one thing – more business and more money!
