It’s no secret that providing fresh content on the web is a wonderful way to market your home based business website. One of the best ways to provide content is by writing articles. No matter whether you sell products, services, or a combination of both, there is always some angle or related topic you can write articles about.
You can write articles and submit them to article directories, such as Associated Content. This is my favorite one to use because they offer you the option to get paid for your submitted content! Aside from that, almost all the directories will let you post a link to your site, usually in your bio box. Since most of the article directories are high ranked in the search engines, your article will provide a valuable inbound link to your site. Some other article directories are listed below.
A disadvantage to article directories is that they often require your article to be at least 500 words or more – sometimes the minimum requirement is even higher. For those shorter articles, which by the way are much easier to write, you can place them on your site. On-site articles provide ‘food’ for the search engine spiders and will give your site the benefit of having ‘fresh content’ for those spiders to index.
Either way you go, article writing is one of best, low cost ways to build your brand and market your home-based business.
