Quality content is key to your online and offline success, but the supporting efforts aside from the copy you produce is how you spread the good word of your information. While article writing for your newspaper is effective and blogging for your site or others is beneficial there is another way that you can take advantage of outstanding content – article sharing websites! With that said, I have gathered a few sites with which you can submit your content for free and have a much larger audience browse through.
- ESnips — As far as sign-up goes, the site itself has a few promotional items here and there which request your password; you can bypass them by clicking on the “No Thanks” button, though. Either way, after taking a look through this site, it is absolutely worth the few minutes it takes to register because of the capabilities to share articles is tremendous with near 5 GB of web space for your articles. To top that off, they currently have a page rank of 6, and they are relatively a new site.
- Zimbio — Nice and easy registration that brings you directly to a page which asks you to link up to your current blog as well as promote the blog within Zimbio. With regard to the site itself, the network is a good size with plenty of other articles. You do get link juice from the links submitted, and you also have the opportunity to create wikizines (online magazine articles)
- Snipsly — A wordpress based site which means that you have great “built-in” search engine optimization before you have even created any content. With Snipsley, you also have access to near 80% of revenue share from Google Adsense, but the main attraction is the ability to implement an excerpt or brief summary of the post along with your weighted links.
- TipDrop — At a pagerank of 4, TipDrop provides 75% return on Adsense marketing. But that’s not all the revenue you can generate directly from the site; you also receive 25% on any tippers you recruit. The catch, though, lies with the idea that you are helping site browsers by writing a 255 word document to explain the basics of your post.
Overall (and like I mentioned above), article marketing can be a significant source of online as well as offline traffic which means that you can see an immediate (and efficient) IMPACT on your revenue and your reputation amongst colleagues/peers. Now that you have the information you need to get started in the realm of article marketing, the next step is you need to tackle is taking that next step to get something started.
