Use Article Directory Submission for an Effective Marketing Strategy:Part 2

By

In Part 1 of Use Article Directory Submission for an Effective Marketing Strategy, I told our story of how we started developing ideas for writing our articles.  I discussed things we do to come up with ideas.

In Part 2, I want to discuss how you take that idea and transform it into a title.

You have your idea.  Now, one of the most important parts of your article is your title line.  Why?

  • When you are submitting to the ezines, your title needs to be compelling enough to make that reader click on your title to access the article.   The competition for reader’s time is fierce and it takes a while to build up a following.  So your title must be intriguing without being stupid.

This is an example of a title line that is getting lots or reads: “Do You Know These Seven Elements of Online Success?”

Go to Go Articles and review some articles.  Great place for ideas, by the way.

  • Also, you need a keyword phrase in your title line that will display in the search results for Google, Yahoo, etc.  Can you guess what the keyword phrase is in the title above?  My guess would be Online Success.  I took my guess and plopped it into the keyword search tool and this was the result.

So you have located your keyword, but it is important to make the title make sense.  Now this one is not as easy as it sounds.  You might find an awesome long tail keyword phrase that does not have severe competition.  But working it into a dynamic title line sometimes takes some creative license.  And sometimes, there is some give and take.  Do you want more search engine punch or is it going on your own site where direct searches may not be as important?

You have your idea, your keyword phrase and a possible title line.  What do you do next?  This is what I do.  I use this awesome site, Advanced Marketing Institute, where you can put your title in and it analyzes it for emotional marketing value based on Intellectual, Empathetic, and Spiritual criteria.

I am going to use the title of this post and show you the results.

Adavanced Marketing Institute

Headline Analyzer

Now for a little homework.  What keyword phrase did I use?  Put this headline in the analyzer and bring the score up.

Or better yet, put in your title and start trying different values to bring up your score.  I usually like to tap into at least two of the criteria, Intellectual, Empathetic or Spiritual.  But this time, I accepted this one and moved on.  This site can get a little bit addicting.

Best of luck on all of your articles.  Get started today.

  1. This really solved my problem, thank you!

  2. I have been looking around the web investigating blog designs, when I ran across this site. I like the theme, did you build or change this theme? I have a website too and my theme is kinda substandard as a result people don’t stay on my webblog very long.

      Hi Curtains and Valances,

      Took a look at your site. Looks like you have a lot of information to share. However, for me, your list is too long on the right hand side. Have you thought about grouping some of your items by category or page, so there are not so many to look through? This technique is called a silo. An example from your site could possibly be “blinds” as a category.

      Wishing you all the success, Sharon
