Speed Up Your Profits: Better Article Submission

Article promotion has greatly increased in popularity among internet marketers, due to its efficiency in driving business to marketing sites. If someone goes through a link in your writing to purchase a product, you will earn a commission. Find great article syndication tips in this article.

To help attract more visitors, try offering freebies. Freebies make customers think that they are getting a lot more for their cash and they are more likely to make another purchase in the future. By including your logo on the freebie, you can get some great free advertising. Remember this and pick products accordingly.

Have your readers provide feedback to your emails. People like to feel useful and feel like they have a say in things. Letting them give you feedback lets them give you their ideas. Your readers will appreciate it, and you may receive some valuable ideas.

Avoid using an overabundance of keywords in the body of your article. In an article, if a keyword is repeated five times or more, both search engines and readers will not like your site. A safe practice is to limit a particular keyword to four times in the article.

Fill your link articles with valuable information. The key to building long-term business relationships with your visitors and potential clients lies in providing them with valuable, informative content.

Although articles written for marketing purposes definitely have ideal word counts, the middle of the first draft is not the place to worry about them. The author should use his or her judgment about the length of the article when it is being drafted. Writers can always pare articles down while editing; very long pieces may be best split into two separate articles.

Your title can make or break your article. Something enticing in your headline will draw readers in and involve them in the article, while something boring will turn them away. Think of a few ideas before you settle on the headline. You might even try using someone around you as a sounding-board, to see what they think about your headline.

Your own creativity may be your best asset when constructing your articles. Showcasing your personality in your writing will add a human dimension to your articles and draw the reader to you. Be honest and original in your writing and see how fast your audience grows.

The best product is easy to market. By doing this you will attract users with ease when you write your articles.

Allow someone you trust to review your article before you proceed to market on the web through backlinks, social media and the other sources. Many article writers become obsessed with keyword placement, and proper grammar or context continuity are sacrificed.

Add a biographical blub in every piece of content. This should provide the person viewing your site with information about you. Readers who like your article should check out your site. This link will facilitate the ability for the reader to get to your site. Articles with author bios also come across on a more personal level, allowing readers to feel more connected.

Try not to sell yourself when writing articles. If you take the time to write a well written article, it will sell it for you. Fill your article with rich content, to inform the reader and keep their interest.

The author box should contain information that is useful, relevant and engaging. Explain why you write about the things you do. You’re going to want to ensure that your main site is linked back from the author box. Make sure to keep multiple sites separate and organized, to avoid linking the wrong sites with the wrong articles.

Put a lot of thought into your articles so that they will capture the attention of the reader. You need to stand out in article advertising since it’s fairly crowded.

Make sure to consider your audience before you decide on what type of content you need. If you know who you want to reach, you can tailor your article to those individuals.

People consider their time to be valuable, make sure your articles are worthwhile. This is an essential part of article advertising. It’s not hard for readers to see when you’re writing to milk money rather than to provide useful information.

Make sure to proofread any articles that you outsource. Contractor writing varies wildly in quality — and you get what you pay for. Before posting, thoroughly read your article. Look for problem areas: spelling, grammar and originality.

Do not neglect your headline! It’s important to create attention-grabbing headlines that entice readers to read your articles. Choose phrases that pop and provoke thought.

It may be obvious, but make sure you’ve got a clear topic prior to writing. An unfocused article that does not support the topic will not impress your readers. This may very well deter them from visiting your site, which was the sole purpose for your article in the first place.

Don’t spend so much time on the text of your article that you neglect the headline. The first thing seen by your readers is the headline, so it must catch their attention so they feel compelled to read the whole article. Try to use catchy phrases that give a taste of the information contained in the article.

Create a title for your article that grabs your reader’s attention. You have to be unique and creative to rise above the crowd in the competitive business of article promotion.

When entering into an agreement to share your content, make certain you know the stipulations as far as your rights and also the reason behind the acquisition of your content. There are some www sites that claim copyright to your articles, so read the fine print.

The above tips should start you off in the right direction as you attempt to be successful at article promotion. Your marketing skills need to be at their peak if you are to compete in this market. If consumers believe your articles are better, then they will probably believe that your products are better too.

Train Status – Big Letdown!

The Train Status app has been hit hard by changes at the train enquiry portal .  The app used to fetch useful train info from trainenquiry.com which has been replaced by the new portal http://enquiry.indianrail.gov.in and I had to update the app,  otherwise it simply would stop working.   Since this new portal does not allow linking to the direct train results,  a lot of functionality has been lost, with no immediate chance to recover any of it.

Thus, as of now, the fact is that you could really just bookmark the site http://enquiry.indianrail.gov.in and use it instead – that is, unless you would like to have the links in a familiar place along with the other features like pnr enquiry and berth & seat calc.

Here is a screenshot of the new – “crippled” – version on Android, which links to the app on Google Play

Indian Train Status – Quick Tip: Paste the Entire PNR SMS!

Noted in a review for the app: “am looking fwd to pasting the entire SMS for finding PNR status”.  Well dear user, your wish has already been granted!

If you copy an entire SMS, go to the app (in Android) and hit paste, the PNR contained in the SMS alone will be pasted automatically, and the status enquiry will proceed.

In iOS, if you copy an entire SMS with PNR, and open the app, the PNR will be already pasted there, just hit Check to proceed!
