Write a single article and get loads of free traffic to your blog or web site Part 1 of II

For readers who have always doubted the power of well written articles as an online marketing weapon, I recommend this one article test. When I started off posting articles, I wrote
only one article and as ignorant and inexperienced as I was in those days, I still got some traffic and response from it.

Of course I have learnt a great deal since then. This is the knowledge you are about to receive in this article so that by writing only a single article, you will be able to receive
loads of traffic to your web site or blog. If nothing else,
this should be able to help you gauge how effective articles
will be for you in the long term.

Actually all you need to do is to observe these 4 simple rules.

1) Your headline is everything

Probably the most important thing to consider is your headline. Spend much more time on your headline than on the writing of
your article.

Here is a simple example to show you how important the
headline is. When you visit a site, even your favourite
site or blog, how do you decide what you are going to click
on and read? It is from the headline is it not?

The greatest article in the world will be useless if the
headline does not cry out to be read. This is precisely the
reason why an article I posted last week already has over
100 hits at one of the sites where I posted it and an
article I posted three months ago at the same site has
hardly managed 30 hits.

If you want a single article to have an impact for you,
you will have to come up with a headline that will
generate clicks, lots of them as people click to eagerly
read what you have to say.

As a matter of interest, this article you are reading
started out as an idea and my first headline was;

“How to use articles to get loads of free traffic”

How boring. There are so many similar headlines available
already on the net. Very few people would be interested
and it would not matter how good my content was, it
would just not get read by enough people.

Look at the final headline I arrived at (above) and
learn what I am trying to say here.

One word of caution; do not trick readers with a
catchy headline and then fail to deliver. Make sure you
can fully justify what you promise in your headline.

2) What do you want your readers to feel?

The next step is to write your article and before you
do so, you will need to decide what it is you want your
readers to feel after reading your article. Excitement
is good objective to have although it is difficult to
achieve. Still if you can manage it, it will show in
your traffic by the hundreds.

Curiosity is another strong human emotion to aim for
with your article, and much easier to achieve most of
the time. If you can make you readers curious and hungry
for more information, they will have no problem doing
what you ask them to do in your resource box.

When writing most of my articles, I start out with all
these objectives in mind as I focus on the particular
subject at hand. When I finish my first draft I usually
know which emotion I will go for or emphasize on as an
objective for the article.

chris I've tried an awful lot of ways to drive consistent, quality traffic to my web sites and hands down in terms of both sales and quick turnaround, If you are even remotely interested in internet marketing you need this internet marketing tool. Now because of the results is brings me, I never let mine expire. I grab the traffic and then simply list five of my favorite affiliate programs to drive traffic to and presto! Right now I'm averaging about $345. a day as a result of this. And the really amazing thing is it only took me I'd say about three minutes to set up and no more than 30 seconds to renew my traffic when I get an email telling me it is about to expire. Enjoyed your "Write a single article and get loads of free traffic to your blog or web site Part 1 of II" post. Oh, and by the way chris, internet marketing is all about sharing things that work so I would appreciate it if you could post things here that you've found to really deliver.

Gooday chris, I was surfing around and came accross your post on Write a single article and get loads of free traffic to your blog or web site Part 1 of II quite by accident. Although it is slightly related to what I was searching for it somehow ads to ones list of lifes experiences.

I sometimes have a soft spot for blogs related to traffic generator and /or sites that have a central theme around traffic generator type items.

Once again chris, thank you for your post. :-)
