I just got through reading some information from one of the top Internet Marketers around. She is someone who is incredibly successful on the Internet and I pay a lot of money for her information. Thus, I pay very, very close attention to what she says and recommends.
She wrote about increasing your visibility and opt in subscribers. One of her top recommendations to increase visibility, credibility and opt in subscriber numbers is to write and distribute articles online.
Hmmm, this is something I have been preaching (and doing) for years.
Have you made it a regular practice to write and submit articles online. If yes, congratulations. You are likely realizing huge results from doing this. (As long as your website is optimized to collect names and email addresses)
If not, why not? Aren't you looking for cost effective ways to increase your presence on the Internet? One of the best ways is to get your writings in as many places as possible.
If you have the time, you can write and distribute the articles yourself. If you don't have the time and it proves more time and cost effective, hire a VA - virtual assistant to do the detail work for you.
Whatever method you choose, as Nike says, "Just do it!"
