The Internet is all about good content. We know that Bill Gates coined the term “content is king,” and it is as true today if not truer than it was when he originally said it. Each website on the Internet has content to tell us what the page is all about and this content is generally composed within articles. You may find that you have a tremendous amount of competition in your niche and your chance to set your operation apart from all the rest lies in the creation of great content. Article writing is a skill that is in high demand these days and is sure to increase. You can spend as much time as you want on design and optimisation, but if you have poorly put together content you will fail. If visitors do not like what they are reading or do not immediately perceive value, they will quickly click away to some place else.
Through article writing you definitely establish your credibility and give people a reason to buy from you. Your articles and content should be well structured and thought out and should always aim to educate, inform or entertain. This is not the Internet of old and it is no longer possible to throw up any old content, put your main keywords within as often as possible and try and gain ranking advances this way. The search engine algorithms are now very intuitive and have been programmed to decipher the content of your articles. You may never have heard of latent semantic indexing, but this process allows the engines to see if your content really contains any relevant, related or secondary keywords as well. In this way they will be able to determine if content is purposeful and relates to the primary subject, due to the existence (or otherwise) of words and phrases that typically complement the prime words.
A lot of people do not have the time, nor the relevant skill to put together and provide great article content. In this case, they are better off employing the services of a professional virtual assistant, skilled in LSI, web content composition and optimisation. Make no mistake about it, article composition must be right at the top of your list of website development tasks for the new year as you commence your Internet marketing initiatives.
Articles can be used in a variety of ways. Use them to provide content on your website development, show how your products or services may be used, target them for newsletter compilation, so important for your new e-mail lists. Remember that an e-mail membership program is one of the best ways to promote your business. Allocate a regular page or section of your website to help you capture names and e-mail addresses. When trying to collect contact details, offer the prospect something really nice in return and help to convince him or her that you can give them great information on your niche. Do not attempt to hard sell through your e-mail newsletters, but just send great and informative material with the emphasis on the fact that content is king. When you select a professional content writer, remember that you will need regular posts for your blog as well....
