Writing articles without readers is enough to make one throw in the towel on content marketing. Many creative writers and entrepreneurs understand how to write an article, but fall short when it comes to promotion.
“Writing is just the start of Content Marketing,” Steve Jolly says,”You cannot overlook the importance of syndicating and promoting your content.”
Some people are afraid of rejection or being labeled as a spammer. They let their fears keep them from promoting their valuable information. “What good is an article if no one reads it?” Jolly continued, “Great information is not spam!”
FastRealEstateMarketing provides tips on how to promote articles for free. There are many ways to pay to promote articles online, but most aspiring writers do not have a large advertising budget.
Social Media is one of the ways to spread a message without buying ads. Participating in Facebook or LinkedIn groups is a great way to build relationships, share valuable information and entice people to look at a profile. “It is important to follow the rules of your social group so your posts do not get tagged or ignored,” Steve Jolly said, “You also need to share more than your posts.” In order to get the most out of social media, it is imperative that writers genuinely participate in social groups. One thing that social media has not changed, relationships are the key to growing business.
Email is often overlooked as a viable way to promote. Some people think that email is dead, but that only applies to spam. Email is thriving for those who provide valuable information. Having forms on a website to collect email address is a must have. People will not give their contact information for free. It is necessary to provide information that solves problems. A compelling call to action with the form will increase the number of signups. An email service is necessary to stay out of trouble with the laws regarding spam, and there are some free email providers for those with less than 2000 addresses.
Other free ways to promote content include Twitter, Pinterest, Web 2.0, Forums, RSS and Bookmarks. For more information on promoting content and driving traffic, go to FastRealEstateMarketing.com.
