Article marketing can often seem overwhelming to those who are new to the game. You need to expend time and energy coming up with topics and then write about them intelligently. This can be time-consuming. On top of that; you have to make sure your articles are properly written and formatted. A good author coach can help you in these areas.
A good article distribution service will provide you quality author coaching. They will offer you live support so you can prepare content that publisher's desire. Author coaches help you avoid the pitfalls that lead to article rejection.
Let's look at what the different article distribution services offer. The service iSnare does not specifically advertise that they have a coaching or advice program for authors. They do promise that human editors will give extra due diligence to their paid and Platinum members work, although not their free membership. Within a week, typically, a paid or Platinum member will have their work reviewed by a human editor who can then help with flaws in a manuscript.
Another article distribution service is EzineTrendz. Again, they do not trumpet the fact that they have a specific author coaching service. They do ensure that all articles are spell-checked. They do not indicate that they provide any feedback to writers to help them improve their article writing efforts.
The Phantom Writers is another article distribution service. It is difficult to find specific author coaching services on this site as well. They do advertise that a human editor will go over articles thoroughly. I guess you can assume they will coach a writer about any article problems. If, as a writer, you are looking for specific author coaching before you write an article, their site does not promote that service. They do promise that they will review every article you submit and that they will contact you with questions or suggestions for a specific article. In this way, you, as an article writer will get helpful feedback so you can make your next article that much better.
Article Marketer does offer author coaching via their Article Marketer University. On this section of their website, they provide author coaching free-of-charge to whoever accesses their site. A person perusing their 'university' will find writing and Internet marketing help.
On their website, you will find you can attend free live telecourses led by top experts in the article and affiliate marketing field. You can also check out audio-on-demand sessions, and e-books that they provide to help you be a better article writer and article marketer. There's a plethora of resources here on how article marketing works, how to write articles, and what article marketing is all about.
In addition, as do some of the other services, Article Marketer does provide human editing of articles. They ensure that an editor will give your article the critical eye. This editor will then get in touch with a writer and explain what needs doing to make the article suitable for publication.
Checking out all of the above article distribution services shows there are differences in what they offer to writers. Some do a quick check of an article for spelling errors and then send it out to publishers. Other spend a little more time on human editing and then coach an article writer on specific problems they find. Others offer a full range of services to writers to coach them before they even write their first articles. Some of those audio-on-demand sessions are loaded with useful information.
When looking for an article distribution service, make sure at the very least you choose one with human editors. Make sure these human editors will contact you with advice for making your work better. It's best to choose an article distribution service that has an author-coaching program with a large reservoir of resources to help you be a better writer.
