Building Your List with Articles and Guest Posts

You can build your list simply by writing articles and Guest Posts for other blogs.

Simple Process for Articles

You write and submit your articles on your topic of expertise or business nature to popular article directories where eZine publishers and readers are looking for the information you provide.

Leveraging your marketing efforts on article writing can be rewarding, if done right. In the real sense, you are actually proving your worth and demonstrating your expertise about your business through the articles you write.

So, how can this method in effect build your mailing list?

The answer: the resource box you attach to your articles. In your resource box (also known as bio box), you include a brief detail about yourself and your business site together with its URL.

It is strongly suggested that your resource box URL links to your mailing list’s landing page where you can get your visitor’s name and email address, which will in turn help you build your mailing list at no cost.

Amazing content and valuable content will have eZine publishers eager to republish your articles together with your resource box for their readers and subscribers. The wonderful result: marketing without effort on your part! Start with these directories:

Top Articles Directories

  2. Submit Your Article -This started as an article submission service, but has also turned into a high-quality article directory over the years.  PR4
  3. Suite101 – Another monstrous article site.  PR7

Simple Process for Guest Posts

You write and submit your articles on your topic of expertise or business nature to popular blogs that are read by the same people you want to reach.

Start by becoming a reader of the blog, comment and/or email with writer/editor of the blog.  Create a connection the same way you would with your potential readers.   Once you feel you have created a relationship contact the writer/editor with a article created specifically for that blog.
You will be able to use the same resource box as your articles.
