------------------ ARTICLE START ------------------
Article writing to promote your interests is a unique way to reach your niche. Different from advertising, e-mail campaigns, and such, your articles objectively inform. The intent with article writing is to impart knowledge and solutions to your readers. Whether your articles are to promote a business, interest, or cause, you "give to" not "ask of" your audience.
With that in mind, three questions arise. First, what is the best way to write articles that connect with your readers? Second, what is the best way to reach your niche market? Third, where can you find the best instruction concerning the first two questions? The answer to the third question will provide solutions to the first two questions.
Where can you find the best instruction concerning the first two questions? The answer is through an article marketing service's online education portal. A good article distribution service offers always-updated, free courses in article writing and article marketing.
The best ones dedicate a section of their websites as college or university centers. It's where they present learning modules from article and internet marketing experts. Here's what you can expect from a quality academic section from an article marketing service:
Informative Content on How Article Marketing Works
For starters, a good service will offer instruction on what article marketing is and how it works. They present straightforward, organized content that explains what article distribution achieves for writers. They also present courses that help you face the blank page or computer screen. Their intention is to allay fears of article writing and undertaking an article campaign.
The better services utilize new technology to teach their subscribers quality article marketing techniques. They make podcasts or live teleseminars available for download. This is learning convenience as you can schedule your learning to suit your schedule. With podcasts, you download them to your mobile device, laptop, or PC homepage.
Articles and E-Books
You may find that you learn better through reading. Most writers are avid readers. Therefore, the better article marketing services make article and E-Books available to writers. You then read online or print up hard copies. Whatever way you choose to read you'll gain valuable insight into article marketing best practices. In addition, you gain knowledge on writing headlines, article marketing with blogs and RSS, and more.
An efficient learning method that the better article distribution services offer, audio seminars represent convenience. First, you retain knowledge well through listening and taking concise notes. Second, you choose when you learn. The audio modules are always waiting there for you. A good service offers Audio-on-Demand with seminars on how to double your writing speed. Audio courses on using Web 2.0 and using articles with E-zines are courses a good service provides.
The key is to access an online article marketing university that provides all of the above options. This will provide you a varied learning experience that you can tailor to your schedule. It makes learning more enjoyable, which means you will make time to learn.
Education from an article service's university improves your writing skills. It also expands your knowledge of the entire article marketing process. With this education, you garner the ability to create content that builds name recognition. You also build credibility as a writer.
The skills you learn enable you to present better content to your niche market. They then trust you as an expert in your field. They continue to follow you as a means to stay up-to-date on topics that interest them. They also link to your website to learn more about what you offer.
With writing skills gained from online courses you write more and engage in more article submission. Then the article distribution service takes over. They perform wide and deep distribution of your writing to specialty publishers within your niche.
You understand what they do and why it works. This is because of online learning modules, which explained this process thoroughly. You have that assurance that the distribution service works efficiently to promote your articles. The result is increased readership for your writing. Therefore, through online courses you now write better articles, and market them better. By answering our third question above, engaging in education, you answered the first two questions as well.
Take the time to hone your article writing and article marketing skills via online education. The time invested is well worth it considering the pay-off. Building name recognition and credibility as a writer will do wonders for your business. Use an article marketing enterprise's academic offerings to help you write better and faster. Then let their widespread distribution efforts gain you that significant audience you seek.
