Wise Article Marketing Strategies

Earn More with LinkConnector

If you are an article writer, you may have submitted your articles to ezines to get your name out there. Ezines are lovely in that they allow the unpublished author to market their name without the expense of advertising. At some point, you may wonder if you can be compensated for your work. The answer: yes, you can. By implementing wise marketing strategies, you can earn money for your work and receive a steady income. Here's how:

Your Website:

If you don't already have your very own website, set one up and feature some of your favorite articles. You'll create an extra set of links to articles you already submitted to the ezines. Make sure you have a contact form to allow interested parties to contact you.


A great alternative to a website are blogs. If you don't have the time or money to manage a website, you can create a blog and have links to your articles appear there.

Message Boards/Forums:

If you run a well-respected and busy forum, consider letting your members know you write articles. If you don't run a meeting, but you are a moderator, ask the forum administrator for the opportunity to promote yourself in exchange for your work.


This site is the king of all places. You can post your resume, your small business ad, look for work, join a club, etc. In most cases, no fees are ever charged, and it can be an excellent way for you to network. At the very least, any link you place in your "ad" will quickly gain you a good connection with the search engines. One caveat: most ads run between 10 and 45 days, so you will need to manage your ads to remain marketable.

Paid Sites:

If you are serious about making some income on your articles, consider investing in yourself and joining a paid site. Many will allow you to have a free trial period or a basic membership. To receive the full benefit of the site, you will need to upgrade. Guru.com is one such site for you to consider.

Trade Associations:

If you write on a specialized topic, such as railroads, contact your local trade association and see if they need a staff writer. Many associations will give you a small stipend. If not, see if you can get a free membership or discounted service for your work. Cash is cool, but free services are excellent too!

Email Lists:

In this day of overreaching spamming, getting an email list of people who will read your emails can be complex. Instead, join a list-serv and discretely share your talents with members there.

Article writing for profit can take time and will usually require a lot of legwork before you get established. Still, it can lead to bigger and more profitable ventures if you stick with it. If you are good at it, it may allow you to quit your "day job" to pursue what you want to do. What can be better than that?
