article marketing,ezinearticles,jeff herring, traffic,traffic generationFresh from the Article Marketing Round Table I led at the recent Glazer-Kennedy Super Conference in Dallas, here is one of the FAQs I got:

Q: Once I have created my article(s), how do I get traffic to my articles?

A: I really like this question, because there are just so many great answers to it. I’ve got room for only 3 in this article, and here they are:

1) – One of the first things I learned about getting traffic on the Internet is this:

“Don’t chase after traffic. Find out where the traffic is going and get your information in front of it.”

When you get your articles on you are getting yourself in front of over 30 + million unique visitors a month. These are folks searching in specific categories for your specific information. This is a great way to connect highly qualified prospects with your information and invite them back to your web site or blog.

Your goal should be to get as many articles up on this Article Directory as you can, and establish yourself as an expert in your niche or area of expertise.

Social Marketing Tips – Why Would I Want to Build an Online Presence With Social Media?

alex mandossian,jeff herring,social marketing, social media marketing,twitter,facebook,youtube,ezinearticles,linkedin,meetupHere’s an interesting Social Marketing question that was asked at the recent Niche Affiliate Marketing System Workshop:

Q: Why would I want to build an online presence using Social Media?

The question came from the notion that Social Media and Social Marketing are just about connecting with your friends. Well, it can be about that. But it is now about so much more!

Get Found. Get Viewed. Get Traffic. Get Profits

While Facebook may have started as something just for college students, it is now the number two website in the world. If the number of people who have Facebook accounts were a country, they would be the 4th largest country in the world.

And that is just one Social Marketing site. Let’s take a closer look at the value of strong online visibility.

The Secret to Getting Traffic From Articles

article marketing, jeff herring, ezinearticles,traffic,resource boxArticle Marketing is the number one source of free traffic on the Internet if you get your Resource Box right. Get this one wrong and you have wasted all your time. Get this one right and you have got it made!

What a Resource Box really is

Call it a Resource Box, Author Bio, etc., what it really is is your opportunity to create a compelling call to action for your reader. 

Even though it is called an Author Bio, it is not the time for you to tell the reader all about you and convince them you are an expert. In fact, if you have not demonstrated that you are an expert in your article, it is way to late to try to do it now.

Even though it is an official Call to Action, I like to teach my students and members to use what I call “invitational language” in their Resource Box. Invitational language can be something as simple as “and now I would like to invite you to…” and then name the next action you would like them to take. 

This is as opposed to something like “get this great new product now and all your problems will be solved by morning and if you don’t you will be broke forever!”

Sure I’ve exaggerated a bit, but not by much.

Here’s how to do it

TWITTER: No One Cares?

Nobody CaresCould it be true? Nobody cares about what you “tweet” about on Twitter?

Yes, it could be true.

IF you are just blathering uninteresting stuff about your life and not interacting with anyone.

IF you are DMing people with your latest “Mafia Wars” news (do you even HAVE a life?) or giving someone a gift of “Corona” and demanding a gift back (truly bad form).

It’s sad too, because your could be using your Twitter platform to make a difference in the lives of those who want and need to learn from you.

So then the question becomes “Just what do we tweet about then, Jeff?”

I’m glad you asked. I’ve got a new article all about what to tweet about. Here’s a hint: It’s all about tweeting about LIFE!
