Writing articles is a great way to promote your business, no matter what kind of business you are in, writing articles work for you.

Many people don't realize the power of article writing, or the influence that an article could bring. It is common for people to hear about writing articles and submitting them to article directories, but it is not so common for people to do it.

Since even writing one article takes time, the lazy internet marketer won't do it. But those that are willing to take time to write and submit them willgenerate a good amount of traffic to their website.

Article Authors recognize and understand that this technique is powerful, that's why they take their time and write a decent article and submit it to Article Directories.

Here are some benefits that you will get when you start to submit your articles.

Submitting your article to article Directories won't cost you a dime.

It won't cost you anything to submit your articles to article directory. It takes time, but it won't cost you anything other than that. But this method of driving traffic to your website will have a long term affect.

You will be recognized as an expert in your field.

When you write decent articles that filled with valuable information, people respect you, they will think of you as a teacher because you know something that they don't know.

You could generate more sales.

Do you realize that writing an article is similar to writing a sales copy? Although both have different purposes, it is the same principle "One drives traffic, another generate sales". If an article would help you generate more sales, are you willing to do it?

You could build a good opt-in list.

I really like this one, writing an article could help you build your opt-in list. You simply add your link to your article and grab their email address. Of course, you'll need a more natural way. A great example is www.articleunlimited.com; you'll find an article e-course when you sign up for it.

An opening opportunity to do joint ventures or find a business partner.

I know a friend of mine has used this method to find his partner. Since he wrote many articles, people who found his articles are interested in what he is writing, and they offer an opportunity for  him to be a joint venture or business partner.

You could do much more with you article if you take the time to write one. It doesn't have to be 1000 words long, it depends on the information that you give out, that's what matters the most.

Writing articles is great way to drive traffic to your website. Don't underestimate the power of article writing. The more you write, the more you will enjoy writing, and the better your article will be.
