I don't know anyone who has an internet connection who doesn't subscribe to one or more newsletters or e-zines.
Every one of them has at least one article, sometimes two that offer advice on some aspect of internet trading. It is seldom that these articles are written by the author of the e-zine or newsletter. They obtain them from specialist Article libraries that act as agents for the people who do the actual writing.What's in it for the writers of these articles? You will notice that every one of the articles has a by-line at the bottom giving you a little information about the author plus a link to some aspect of the his/her business.This is one of the most effective methods of advertising that there is. Not only that, it's free. A well written article will often be used by a dozen or more newsletters and e-zines over a period of a few months, each with a readership of thousands. Sometimes tens of thousands.

Each one of these readers is a potential customer of the writer of the article. The author of the newsletter will only use articles that relate to the type of person who subscribes to that particular newsletter. You have, in effect, access to a target audience who have opted in to read your article.

I don't know any other way of reaching so many interested people with so little effort and as I said before, it will cost you absolutely nothing to do it.

That article could have been written by you. Yes you. You can do it. Anyone could do it.

If you have never written an article for publication I would like to give you a few tips on how to go about it.
Over the next week, read as many articles that you can get hold of. Subscribe to a number of newsletters and e-zines that are of interest to you. Read and re-read the articles. Get a feeling for the way they are composed.

When you have studied a couple of dozen you will start to get the feeling "I could have done that." Now is the time to go back to the beginning and read them over again. You will soon realize that there is nothing that you could not have done yourself.

The next thing to do is to pick a headline from an article that you have not read. With the headline as your inspiration, proceed to write your own article of about three hundred words. You will probably need to do a little research to make sure that you have your facts right. That is par for the course.

When you have finished. put it away for at least two days before getting it out and reading it again. Now is the time to do some extra editing. Cut out all of the waffle. Stick to the facts. See if you can re-arrange some of the text to reduce the number of words. You may feel the need to re-write the entire article. That's good. You're getting the hang of it now.

Now is the time to read the article who's headline you used. Isn't it amazing that two people using exactly the same headline can each write an article that is so different from one-another.

When you send your article to one or more of the libraries I suggest that you use a similar but different headline. You don't want to be confused with another writer who possibly is not as good at it as you now are.

By line.
