Incorporating writing as a means of boosting your link popularity
can be a turnoff for many webmasters, when in fact it can lead to
a wealth of links.
I first learnt about link popularity while researching about
many different methods that I could use to market a Geocities
site I had. After emailing countless webmasters and receiving
some dismal results, I realized that it was hopeless to get
people to exchange links with my freebie website.
Then I discovered writing. At first I was skeptical at using this
concept but after trying it for some time, the results began to
show. What was wonderful is that it only cost me some of my time.
With the help of article writing I was able to achieve a
Pagerank of 4 for my Geocities website. The more webmasters that
archived my articles the more links I had pointing to my site. As
a result of my growing link popularity I began to see my site
show up on the first or second page for some relatively
competitive search terms.
Using writing as a marketing tool can save you thousands in
advertising dollars. Imagine a website or ezine that costs
hundreds to advertise in and you have the feature article which
didn’t cost you a dime to produce. You can easily see which
generates more profit in the long run.
Through the power of the written word you can be able to get free
publicity for your business. Providing quality and profitable and
sometimes inspiring information can help you to achieve that
goal. Many top marketers have used writing to good effect.
Developing your own writing style is important. As there are many
others doing the same thing you what to differ from them. How can
you stand out in a crowd if you are just like everyone else.
Practicing and researching helped me to put pen to paper for my
first articles. Some of your first creations maybe a bit tacky
but as long as you keep going you can improve.
Writing can be a task at times. There are moments when I have
written the first two paragraphs and just get stuck. The
inevitable writer’s block can be a challenge to overcome. Taking
a break and getting into the right frame of mind can be helpful.
Can anyone become a writer? Well the answer depends on how much
effort you put into it. I have had some wonderful experiences
since I became a writer. At times when there are criticisms and
negative feedback, they can help you to better your skills if you
use them the right way.
Many people don’t like writing. But sometimes it is the things
that we don’t enjoy doing that are most beneficial to us. Try
your hand at writing, if a guy from a Caribbean island can do it
then so can you.
