As you might know, I have recently indulged my appreciation for writing in the public arena. A few months back, while working on a project case study, I came across --actually my wife came across-- an interesting platform for Article submission. I had not really heard of this style of marketing before and was hesistant to jump in.
But, as the good-people would have it, this platform has now become an incredible outlet for novice and professional Article Marketers.
A few things to learn first:
1. Article writing is not product promotion, as the product IS the article itself. The result of this becomes spam jam and gets you and others banned from article websites.
2. Instead of spamming the web or writing a blog, I found Social bookmarking the way to be seen. In fact, after engaging 5 bookmarking sites, my traffic has steadily increased from 1/4 impulse power to warp speed in less than 30 days.
3. There are 3 very useful platform for Article Writing I would recommend: Squiddo, Xomba and HubPages. In fact, this article dream is about HubPages latest treat.
Four years ago, the San Francisco based content website launch and since has amassed nearly 150,000 authors from around the world, and 30,000,000 viewers per month! Today, 5 August 2010 celebrates a milstone of four years (Happy birthday HP). Yesterday over the media wire came a surprising and awesome bit of news.
Hubpages is presently venture partners with Yieldbuilder, and integrates aggregates like AdSense, Kontera, eBay and Amazon Affiliates has now teamed up with perhaps the best platform for lightweight ad media through ClickTurn-widgetbox. This means that rich, dynamic, relevent, lightweight advertising will now appear on author articles, increasing keyword traffic, Page Impression, Customer curiousity and no doubt CPM (Clicks Per Mile) and CTR (Click Through Ratios).
The Hub Pages platform is quite unique, providing all the tools and toys any article marketer needs, from Java modules to daily real time stats, article scoring and placement, social networking share tools, inbound links, RSS, even "Hub Karma" for the supersitious folks.
Should you consider a wide platform of writing, or even niche writing, then hands down, I give HubPages three thumbs up.
