How to Find Ideas for Article Marketing

Article marketing is one of the best online business opportunities available. Basically it is the process of writing informative articles and submitting them to article directories and other websites that accept article submissions. It’s a great way to market yourself and your business on the internet, and it’s free.

Unfortunately, writing a lot of articles and writing them well, is not something that everyone is able to do on a consistent basis. One of the main problems most internet marketers face is coming up with ideas for topics to write about in their articles. So, here’s a few ways to find ideas for article marketing…

The first way to find ideas for articles to write is to visit forums within your niche. What are some topics that people talking about in the forums? Take these topics and create article topics from them. Not only will you have great ideas that you can write about but you’ll also be creating articles that people will really want to read since you know they are looking for more information on that topic.

Another way to find ideas for article marketing topics is to tune into the news. Is there something in the news that’s in or related to your niche? If so, write a few articles about it. The news will help pull people into the topic and then your articles will tap right into their interest.

Yet another great way to find ideas for internet marketing articles is to simply use search engines and search for topics within your niche. Obviously you don’t want to steal any content from other websites or even take exact topics from other articles. However, you can certainly get ideas from other articles and website content. So, visit a few websites related to your niche and you will undoubtedly get a few great article ideas.

Now you have three excellent ways to find ideas for article marketing topics. You can look to forums within your niche, tune into the news for stories in or related to your niche, and you can also get ideas from other websites in your niche. From these three sources you will be able to get plenty of ideas for articles you can use in your internet marketing efforts.

    I think article marketing is way overrated today, it is a flooded medium and a lot of the current articles are mechanically produced keyword fodder. As with most good things, it will come to an end and in my opinion it already has. The return for the time spent is plummeting when compared to making a worthwhile comment on a blog like yours with a backlink to my own blog for 30 seconds of genuine thought and effort.

    I do see your point to an extent but I do not fully agree with you.

    I do agree that many internet marketers are automating the article marketing process far too much these days and it is flooding the directories with a lot of useless crap. However, I don’t agree that article marketing is dead or even close to it. You can still get a lot of great links that help with search engine rankings as well as plenty of direct traffic from the articles themselves. The key is to write more useful articles than other people and stand out from the crowd by doing other things a little differently.

    Also, I agree that blog commenting has its place as a good internet marketing strategy but I still don’t think it’s better than article marketing in the overall picture. Although sometimes it can be better depending on the situation.
