Article Marketing... Does It Work?

Immediate gratification, you have to love it. I know I do.
But when it comes to book marketing it’s more of a hurry up and wait type of business.
You have to wait while the book is being edited, and while it’s being formatted, while it gets printed and delivered. Well you get the idea anyway.
Article marketing offers some immediate gratification because once you have posted your article and it is approved you can track it to find out how many people have looked at your article. Boy does that feel good. People read your article then they go back to your web site. That’s the goal, to get them interested enough in what you have to say to get them back to your site. Then it becomes a numbers game. The more people that visit your site, the better the chance that you will sell books. It won’t happen overnight but it will happen.
It isn’t just people back to your site but you will become the leader of the pack when it comes to a Google and Yahoo search.
You also will have your article picked up by other web sites that are interested in what you have to say. That introduces you to that persons following.
Article marketing is kind of like that old shampoo commercial. You know the one tell two people and they tell two people and so on and so on. I know I dated myself but you get the picture.
So should you partake in article marketing? Yes. Will it pay off? You’d better believe it!
Remember, book marketing is a marathon not a race.

Happy Writing!
