For the A to Z Challenge, I’m posting promo and other tips for writers. Today - articles.
Articles are a very cost-effective means of promotion and place you in front of new audiences.
What do you write about? If you are a writer or author, you’re an expert in SOME field! Share that wealth of knowledge with the world. Remember, the purpose of articles is to provide valuable information and/or solve problems - not to promote you or your book.
Where should these articles appear? Well, where will they be in front of your target audience? Consider:
Blog and website guest posts
Magazines and periodicals, both online and in the real world
And the list goes on…
How often? To be truly effective - 1-3 articles per week. (Especially leading up to the release of a book.)
Now it’s time to brainstorm! What topics can you discuss? How can you help others be wealthier, healthier, sexier, more informed, or save them time?
