One of the best and cheapest ways to market your internet based business is through article marketing. Although this is a task that many internet marketers find quite daunting, in reality once you find an easy method to use when writing articles, you will see that it can be done quite quickly and is not that difficult to do. It is also very rewarding.

In this article you will find a simple plan on how to go about getting those articles written that will improve your rankings on the search engines and begin sending targeted traffic to your website. Just one point first is to remember the importance of using your keywords when writing your articles and adding links back to your website but only in the resource box which is to be found at the bottom of your article.

Here is the simple formula to use when writing articles:

1.  Begin with the introduction. This need not be long, a simple three – four sentence paragraph explaining to the reader what the article is about is all that is required.

2.  In this paragraph explain how this information will benefit them with their endeavors. For example, if the article is about building their internet business and they need to increase traffic the dream is about how tons of targeted traffic just keeps flowing to their website and sales continue to grow. This paragraph also does not need to be too
long, just a few sentences will do.

3.   This is where you describe the problem (e.g. No traffic) the importance of having this traffic to their internet business website and why it needs to be targeted traffic, what methods they may possibly have tried before etc.

4.  The solution to their problem. Here you will explain how to utilize this method and what they can expect to gain from doing so. When people research information on the internet, they mostly are looking for solutions to a problem they may be having. Keep this fact in mind when writing an article no matter what subject or product you may be writing about.

5.  Objections. Generally people will find some way to object to any solution you may be offering them, whether it is a product you are discussing or information on how to solve a problem they could be having regarding their internet based business.

This is human nature, so be prepared and head off any possible objections in this paragraph. Discuss what you think might be a problem such as; if the article is about marketing articles the objection could be the time required in writing or posting the articles to various directories. This is where you would explain how quickly and easily this could be done.

When you face these points head on and discuss them you
are adding authenticity to anything that you might be writing about.

6.  Re-affirm the benefits of using or following the information you have previously given in the article.

7.  Summarize what you have written about and conclude your article on a positive note.

You will find that by following this seven step method to writing articles the task will become not only easier but also quicker to perform and that it is really not something to be feared.

With practice your confidence will grow and in no time at all you will become known as an expert in your field, your SEO rankings will improve and your internet based business will grow from strength to strength.
