Think about those increased sales, mainly because they are targeted.
The third best reason is that this promotion method takes little time to accomplish, maybe nine hours a week. You write a short article from 300-800 words, get it edited and send it off. You can send to over 10 opt-in ezines at once with just one click. That's exposure to over 15,000 potential customers. You may spend an hour writing at first, but soon, you will produce a great article much faster.

More Reasons to Write and Submit Articles
4. Submitting articles is 7 times as effective as advertising because when you submit many articles, you become known as the savvy expert. Your potential buyers appreciate your fre*e information and will eventually trust you enough to buy from you.
Just the sheer numbers of these articles you submit with your proper signature box at the bottom can bring 10-50 new ezine subscribers each time. This free advertising box attracts people to your Web site, where, if you have proper copywriting with marketing pizzazz, you will sell many books or services.
Start writing a few articles, keep them until you have ten to submit.As you submit them, write a new article once a week. When you submit 20 or so, you will become a household name. Ezine publishers and sites will publish them People who visit the site or read the ezine will also ask you if it's OK they use your article. Of course it is!
They will send your articles to their business associates, who, if they produce an ezine or have a Web site, will also publish your article. Talk about viral marketing! You can also write short tip articles from 100-300 words. You coach now expands her market to people who don't want a lot of information--just the facts, please.
Coach's Tip: Be sure to send a thank you each time someone emails you saying they want to publish your article. After you thank the, ask for permission to add their email to your ePublishers email list. When you keep track of all supporters in an email list, they become your 24/7 sales force. Your coach sends new articles and tips each week to over 150 ePublishers she collected emails from. Now, that's viral marketing at its best!
Entice your ePublishers to say "yes, ePub" in the subject line back to you by offering the benefit that it's straight to their email door and they will get the latest, up-to-the-minute information on your topic.

You can change the slant with another audience, or you can change the title, shorten or lengthen it.You can take a small amount of information out of one article and repackage it into a short tip. Ask your coach the best way to write a tip.

Debbie Allen, shameless promoter herself, who wrote "Confessions of Shameless Internet Promoters" took three of my how-to articles for her latest Internet marketing book. Now in it's 2nd printing my revised three articles will pull even more interest. As she promotes her book, she promotes these articles. This word of mouth buzz will bring even more new business.
9. Take advantage of your Online audience. Remember, people go the net to get free information. If you give that freely, they are more apt to become loyal customers.

You can be published in hundreds of them!
