This Is How To Make Your Article Sell.
Be sure to keep these points in mind:
Write a content rich article along with a resource box
I’m sure you’re familiar with article writing tips, and you may already have a good deal of experience as a good writer. That’s great. So let’s move on to the issue of exactly what makes for a good resource box.
What function does the Resource Box serve?
The importance of the resource box can’t be overlooked. It contains information about the person who wrote the article, and is usually at the end of the article. It’s a mandatory aspect of the article, because it’s an important marketing channel.
Here are some important items that you should include in your resource box.
Your name: This goes without saying. You don’t have to include your title.
Your URL address: Obviously, you want to provide a working destination web address to send your visitors to. For example, http://www.yourname.com.
A catchy slogan: This is usually a 2 or 3 sentence brief about you, and whatever it is your attempting to sell. Think of it as being a classified ad, where you tell people about your USP (Unique Selling Proposition), and what separates you (or your product) from the competition.
Your call to action: Since most people don’t take action the first time because of laziness or procrastination, you have to use the kind of motivating words and phrases that’ll get them off the sofa, and onto your website in short order. This is something you’ll have to experiment with. But you can start out by saying something like, “To find out about this product, click here.
Your contact information – Take care to include valid data about your telephone number and contact address. Remember, once your article is published it’s no easy task to retract.
Here are some dos and don’ts:
Don’t put irrelevant URL’s on your website.
Don’t go off on a tangent, and always keep your subject and product in mind. Don’t write anything about what you’ve done in the past because most people don’t care about that. They only care about what your product and/or service is going to do for them.
Your resource box should be about one-fifth of your article size.
There’s no question that boosting your marketing strategy by means of writing articles is something you should seriously consider. It’s one of the most effective ways in helping you enhance your image in the affiliate marketing industry.
