Traffic Generation Tactic: Article Marketing both Manual and Automatic 

 January 9, 2012

By  Gavriel Shaw

Article Marketing has been heralded for years as the best all round traffic generation tactic, and I happen to agree.

It can be scaled to any budget, from newbie netrepreneurial dabbler, all the way up to big corporate strategies.

I suggest that anyone start off by doing manual article submissions to the following top article directories: www.ezinearticles.com and www.articlebase.com.

Become familiar with the process, the publishing guidelines, and see some initial results for your efforts from those first.

Continue to submit manually to those top directories above, but also add the following automation tools:

  • Use Unique Article Wizard to help automatically submit your unique articles to hundreds of publishing directories.
  • Use Best Spinner to help write unique articles.

Article Marketing Process

So here’s essentially how I do it:

First, I write a good original content article. I might read a few articles on ezinearticles.com for inspiration if I feel the need.

Once the article is written, I submit it manually to ezine articles.

I then go over to Best Spinner and create a highly spun article using the original article content.

I then take unique spins and manually submit them to basearticles.com and several other social sites.

From there, I submit the spinnable article through Unique Article Wizard.

From start to finish this entire process probably takes me on average 1.5 hours.

What this gets me is literally hundreds of quality backlinks to whatever site or page I am promoting.

This tactic is responsible for a lot of very quickly achieved top Google rankings where some new sites I have recently put together are already ranked in the Top 3 of Google for their target key terms. (There are some other SEO techniques used, but that’s for another topic series.)

Bottom line: Article Marketing should be used by all businesses, following the general process I have outlined above (which my FIIM members will get in great detail). Article Marketing builds short-term traffic as well as solid SEO for the long-term.

Use Best Spinner and Unique Article Wizard to make your article marketing supra-effective.
