Free reprint articles as a web promotional tool is the most popular, cost-effective way to increase the volume of visitors to your website.
Publication of these articles is a way to help the writers, advertisers, publishers and webmasters as they go about their business in the Internet.
Free reprint article means you are allowing publishers to publish your articles on their site, newsletters and ezines provided that they follow your Terms of Reprint. If they do not, you are in the position to ask for a cash payment for your article used. The Terms of Reprint is found on the top of the article.
One thing you have to guard yourself of, as a writer, is the illegal use of your article. This is why your Terms of Reprint is very important. This protects you as a writer and sole owner of the article from plagiarists and those who illegally posts or use your articles. It ensures that you will enjoy your pay for all the hard work, not monetarily speaking though, but through promotional ways like the ýresource boxţ attached at the very end of your article. This helps in generating traffic to the authorÝs website and a probable increase in sales for his own online business.
The Terms of Reprint are often very liberal in nature so anybody in his right mind can follow through. Remember, you were the one who sweat it out on your article, spend 12 hours doing it only to find out you cannot benefit a single from it. Hmmm!!!
Aside from the cash payment you may get from those who have improperly used your article, you can also call the attention of the webhost carrying the site where your article is illegally posted. The Terms of Service of most webhost have policies that prohibit plagiarism or contents obtained illegally. The webhost has the authority to officially shut down that site.
Who benefits from your articles?
´ WRITER. You as a writer benefit from your articles through the resource box you provide at the end of each article. Plus all benefits including getting published, free publicity, image as an expert, establish lasting contacts and increase traffic.
´ WEBMASTER. Free content to build strong keywords for ratings is what webmasters are looking for. Thus, it is very important for them that articles are informative and useful.
´ ADVERTISER. These people are on the lookout for websites with good, steady flow traffic where they can advertise their products. Free content and articles can provide them with these through the links attached at the bottom of each. If advertisers see that articles are posted to several good sites then they will advertise on these sites and yours. This is a way to have a good return of investment for advertisers.
´ EZINE PUBLISHER. Of course, any publisher would want good quality articles in his newsletter or publication to drive in more visitors and maintain the regulars.
´ END USER/READERS. Internet surfers come in categories ˝ students, internet marketers, online businessmen, educators, etc. All of these people have reasons why they need information about certain topics but everyone has one common reason why ˝ to learn.
Enough of the benefits, you may know all the good it will do to you but you got to start somewhere, right? What you need to know is how to do it. Here are quick, easy, anyone-can-do-it-ways you need to follow to start your pen writing now.
1. Gather your ideas, establish the main idea and focus. Articles that you will produce must have strong relevance to your website because this will direct readers, potential visitors, to your site. This is why you should create informative articles to which everybody can learn from.
Make your articles to two parts. Put the first part on other sites with the NEXT link at the bottom. The second part will be on your own site.
2. List down five or more key points and provide explanation for each. These points should give the core information you think needed by readers. How-to articles most often use this method to explain steps in doing something.
3. Simple introduction that captures and summarizes what you will cover in your article is required. Readers will know instantly if the information they need is included in the article then they would continue reading.
4. After a capturing introduction, end your article with a blast. Summarize all the main points and bring your article to a natural close. A tip would be to review some articles in an article directory and study how authors end their articles.
5. After you have formed the body of your article, except with some minor revisions perhaps, you can now add a catchy, attention grabbing title. The formulation of a good title is important because this is where you can generate visitors to your site. Publishers scan titles of articles, choose several that grab their attention and post it on their publications and ezines.
6. Be conscious of the length of your articles. Usually, most publishers accept 500-700 words with a ceiling of 1,000 words. An articleÝs quality is not dependent on the number of words but on the content and information it provides.
7. Have your own resource box. This is the reason why you wrote your article in the first place ˝ to promote your site, products or services. Do not waste it. This is the only pay you will get from your article. See to it that you make it simple, devoid of any promotional words, avoid an obvious advert and include only one link to avoid confusion.
A resource box is a bio information, you state your name, contact details, perhaps a sentence about that presents yourself as an expert to establish credibility and a sentence about your site with the link.
Do all these and you are ready to go on your way to being popular even just in the web.
