No business can survive without a marketing strategy. This is true even for online businesses. One of the most successful ways to promote a business online is via article distribution.

Tips on Promoting Online via Article Distribution
To succeed at article marketing and distribution there are some things that must be kept in mind. These include:
Original Content: Write useful pieces, but try to target a particular niche. These pieces should ideally be about the same thing, but more importantly they should provide information. Make sure to include keywords relevant to your business.
Choose Topics Wisely: Use topics that make readers want to read what you have to say. Catchy, interesting headlines are important in the promotion process; after all, it is the first thing potential clients will see.
Keep it Short and Sweet: Online readers have limited time so do not write long, hard to read pieces. Use bullets points and short sentences for maximum effect.
Blog: Create a blog that is connected to your website and post your blog entries there, or place articles on your own website. Quality content attracts readers, readers become customers.
Publish often: The more quality articles you have published online the better. This will increase the amount of traffic your website will get and the likelihood that you will be found by search engines.
Reputation: Build your reputation in the industry or area where your offer your services. One great way to do so is to write an eBook on the topic. This can be as simple as using your already published pieces.
Bylines and Author Resource: Make sure to use bylines where allowed when posting or commenting in forums. Place your URL in the author's box on distribution sites.
Employing a great marketing strategy will help promote any business online, not just Internet-based entities. In addition, it doesn't matter the size of the business, it can benefit from this type of promotion. Promoting a business online takes time to get it done right and achieve results, but it is worth it to achieve success.

Publishing articles is what a publisher does best. It takes time to start seeing results from your article marketing strategy, but do not give up, success will happen in time.
