Writing content does not have to be a chore. It can actually be fun believe it or not...and within this tutorial we are going to show you how to effectively write articles for the promotion of Wealthy Affiliate.

The great thing about article writing is that it does not cost a dime. Getting traffic for free is an excellent starting point if you are on a limited budget, or you simply want to gain experience without risking money before you move into "higher risk" strategies like PPC Marketing.

Before I get into the more finite details as to how to create a successful WA article marketing campaign, I want to give you the assurance that YOU HAVE what it takes to write a lot of articles, and to succeed with article marketing. However, if you have NO interest in promoting Wealthy Affiliate, you should not be writing articles to promote it. First and foremost. If you are trying to write just to promote, then you are going to be wasting your time.

Be interested in your niche. If you are interested in Wealthy Affiliate, online business, online education, working from home, then you can successfully promote WA through article marketing.

Your writing should be natural and writing should be "how you write", not somebody else. People tend to have the excuse that they are not that good at English or they don't have writing skills, yet they write emails to their friends, write regularly on their facebook wall, on forums, on blogs, etc. Trust me, you have the skills!

A solid article marketing campaign can drive 100's of clicks (if not more) everyday. This amounts to $1,000's in free traffic over the course of a month...and likely $1,000's in earnings as well. This is quite powerful!

In this tutorial we are going to outline for you how to get a large article marketing campaign up and running, starting with the process. There really are only 3 steps:

  1. Research
  2. Write
  3. Submit
These are going to be explained in much more details in the coming pages.

This is where I am stuck at at the moment Kyle. Everyone is writing stuff easily and me well I'm just stuck here and this is why I am still not a fully fledged blogger :( I got flair and sophistication but getting started is just proving a bit daunting. Any other articles you think would be beneficial would be greatly apprecciated.

Kyle, so the articles that are submitted to streetarticles should not be uploaded on your website. Is that correct? Thus, an article that we create on streetarticles should contain links that directs the reader towards our own website?

With the changes over the years to search algorithms, article directory posting is no longer the SEO tool that it once was. This training is over four years old and doesn't reflect current conditions regarding article directories.

From Carson on another discussion about two years ago:

"Article Directories are not something that offer much benefit at all anymore, other than to help Google find your website when it's brand new. That said, the second you share your website at Wealthy Affiliate, Google knows about it within seconds.

Although we own StreetArticlces.com, it's of little value to people to post their content on. We suggest posting all content on your website, not on any directory.

Carson"

Yeah, all the content you create should go directly onto your website versus submitting to article directories like Street Articles. You get full value with your content on your website, you own it, and it will continue to contribute towards your brand and authority in the niche.

Hi Bob, what does Carson mean by saying: "the second you share your website at Wealthy Affiliate, Google knows about it within seconds."

And how do I share my website here in WA, so that Google knows about it?

And how we can know if Google knows about our websites or not?

Appreciate your help.

This has definitely been the most helpful tutorial for me! I was worried about how I was writing and about writing on a topic I have minimal knowledge of. Thank you so much! WA is truly amazing and I'm loving it more and more each day. I am a slow writer so hopefully I will be able to decrease my writing time as I practice more

Thank you so much for this tutorial. I was so worried about my writing skills (since I was never good at it) But after having a "formula" like this to stick with and follow through, I guess I'm not that bad of a writer! WA really is an amazing program so that makes my writing job easier as well :)

I would enjoy promoting WA. I have come to be addicted to the community, and the amount of training involved. Great program. I also believe I can go further doing a website promoting the WA foundation of internet marketing. You have to believe in what you are selling/promoting in order to do a good job. Thanks Kyle.

Please ensure that there are sufficient paragraphs within your article. Based on the number of words in your article we suggest having 13 or more paragraphs to increase readability. On StreetArticles.com I get this error, but I can't even indent or enter to next line, I had to put spaces between paragraphs in order to separate them. Is there a way to fix this?

When I had problems with StreetArticles I had to open in a new browser (Explorer didn't work but FireFox did). Also, I typed my article in Word and cut and pasted it into the box at Street Articles, just so I would have a copy of the article saved if something went wrong.

Tried in IE and Chrome, I don't have FF installed. Neither one is working. I do have it saved on Word, though. Hopefully this issue isn't happening to everyone.

I would install FireFox. I had problems once with another writing website not related to WA and had similar problems, They also resolved when I used FireFox. so it's worth a try. Hope it helps.

Maybe I am overthinking, but how do you decide when to post something as a page on your website versus posting it on StreetArticles or the like? Do you just alternate?
Reply
Kyle Premium
90% of all content should be going on your website, that is my rule of thumb when getting a website up and running.
Reply
LA2506 Premium
had the same thoughts...reading through these 6 lessons I began to identify that this is what I have been doing to create the posts on my website. Kyle, you are saying that some of the content on your blogs can and should be used on your website posts...perhaps in a different more detailed format? Therefore, I can do the reverse, and use the content of some of my posts to create an article to post on other sites like Street Articles?

whats a landing page.? And how is an article connected to our blog? I m not afraid of the writing Im confused.
Reply
Kyle Premium
A landing page is a page or post on your website. It is a page that people "land" on. Don't overthink it, it is just a web page, any web page.

Your article will link to your blog and you will get traffic because your article will get ranked and then they will click-through to your website.

You will want to write and submit your articles to StreetArticles.com. This is owned by Carson and myself. It achieves high rankings and has quick moderation times.

One thing that I recommend though is that you write QUALITY content with your main goal of helping the reader. Do not write promotional articles. A visitor will not read a promotional article and it probably wont' get accepted within Street Articles.

Why not within StreetArticles.com? Surely that does away with competition which makes the whole thing very difficult? And why doesn't the same thing apply to the other places?

I used the funnel to create my blog and have used "Wealthy Affiliate Review" as my main keyword already. If I want to add keywords and write more articles using those keywords, do I need to add a post to my blog so that the new keyword will be in the content? do i need to add a new page with each main keyword and use the keyword in the new page headline?

Under the section "Submitting the article," it says to submit to ONE article directory. Why only one?

For clarity, "Keyword in Heading" means Keyword in TITLE. Someone just starting out might be real technical and wonder if Heading = Title (I know I would if I didn't read other tutorials.

Hope that helps someone.

Seeing how many backlinks your competition has is also part of keyword research and is left out in many tutorials that talk about keyword research.
To do this simply go to yahoo.com, type in linkdomain:theysiteyouwant.com and the number of backlinks they have will come up.
This could increase traffic, is free, and only take a few minutes.

This is super-helpful---thx! It reminded me of simple ways to see what ppl are asking, so I can tap into the flow of questions and provide answers/responses. So good for selecting a niche. And the hint about checking what ADs already have given top ranking to an article with the same keywords as mine----just that one hint will help me winnow down how to submit articles.
