* Are you trying to promote a web site or online store?
* Are you a consultant or small business owner looking for new customers?
* Do you have an e-zine and want new subscribers?Writing articles and sharing them online can be a great way to meet all of these goals!

What to write about:

Before you actually begin writing, get out a piece of paper and write down your goals for the articles. Are you trying to bring business to your online store? Do you want to locate new customers for an offline business? Write down specifically what you hope to accomplish.

Next, write down the type of people who you are seeking. What type of people are most likely to buy from your store, for example? Are they male or female, young or old, parents or single? Write down as many characteristics of your ideal customer as possible.

Then, look at the combination of your objective and your desired customer, and figure out some article topics that would be of interest to a person in your target group.

Heres an example to give you a feel for what Im talking about:

* Goal: bring customers to my online store, which sells birthday items
* Ideal Customer: a mother with children between 1 and 10 who is planning a birthday party for her children in the next few months.
* Topics:

    – How to plan a first birthday party
    – How to plan a childs birthday party
    – Kids parties on a budget
    – Unique party ideas for children
    – How to have a _ birthday party (dressup, zoo animal, etc etc)Write it:

    Now, start writing your articles!

    Pick one of your topics to start. Develop an outline of the topics you want to cover. Dont pick too many; ideally your article will be only about a page in length.

    Write it! Keep it to the point, share as much information as you can, and keep the paragraphs fairly short. When youre finished, have someone else proofread it if possible.

    Finally, develop a short resource box to place at the bottom of all of your articles. This is only 4 – 5 lines, and tells a little about you plus has a link to your web site, an email address, or whatever else you want. If you include some sort of free gift or report for people who click through that will increase your click-through rate.

    For example, here is the one I use:

    Market it:

    There are 2 components to marketing your article.

    First, post it to online directories that publishers use to locate articles they can print in their publications. The usual arrangement is that you post your article to a database, and the publisher can then reprint your article as long as they include your resource box at the bottom.

    These are the directories I use: (if your article is business-related)

    Second, if you have time – do a search for ezines which you think your target customers might read at cumuli,

    Once youve found some appropriate publications, send a copy of your article to the publishers of those ezines to see if they would be interested in including it in their ezine or on their web site.

    Imaginary and non-existent pseudo-forex that is worthless on its own until you possibly can convince some douche bag to buy it from you and commerce it for actual currency or goods. The opposite fifty two – together with Microsoft, Expedia, Mozilla, and Shopify – all settle for BTC, while 25 settle for Litecoin , 15 settle for Sprint , thirteen accept Ethereum, 14 settle for Bitcoin Money , 12 accept Monero , and 15 accept Dogecoin In different words, Bitcoin is probably the most usable cryptocurrency as a method of payment, for the simple purpose that any service provider that accepts any crypto is almost sure to just accept Bitcoin, while the same can’t be said for other coins.

    Over the previous days, my cell phone, most probably like that of so many others, has been inundated with repeated messages by and different cryptocurrency traders spreading the pleased information that Kerċem sisters (or was it twins?), other alt coins and a number of other plucky housewives from Mosta have made 1000’s of euros on the bitcoin markets simply by following directions, taking up challenges or accepting attractive affords.
