Write for Your Wealth

If your doctor advised you to run, jog or walk for the sake of your health, I'd advise you to write for the sake of your wealth........ from Internet business!

Since I ventured into this very interesting and exciting Internet marketing business, I've been writing for some time, something I happen to be enjoying doing. Since the day I learnt to construct my first complete and grammatically correct sentence in English, writing to covey to others my thought, ideas and opinions has been a very fascinating process for me.

For many years friends and business associates have been seeking my input to assess, correct and improve their own writings. Before I knew it, strangers from the Internet have also approached me to help them in copy writing their sales letters and web content.

Having been immersed in the intriguing English language for about 4 decades and after writing articles pertaining to Polymer Technology, punctuated with occasional feature articles, I now find myself in the midst of Internet business that "demands" that I should start to delve into the possibility of writing about Internet-online-home-based-businesses. What a refreshing and welcoming prospect!

Despite my "advanced" age, Internet online business is relatively new and foreign to me compared to Polymer Technology. A considerable amount of effort in the form of research work has to be put in through both primary (mainly interviews) and secondary market research (Library and the Web). The part I enjoyed most was the interviews I held with the so-called Internet "gurus" most of whom are young enough to be my children!

It has therefore been a very challenging, interesting and rewarding experience. Equally, the "gurus" found the interviews utterly amusing, sometimes jaw-dropping with disbelief, having to answer questions on matters that are so basic and simple (to them but definitely not to me!) which they have taken for granted for so long!

You must be agonizing yourself with burning questions in your mind at this juncture wanting to know what writing has got to do with Internet business, that is if you happened to belong to the uninitiated-soon-to-be-obsolete group of individuals. Relax, I'd put you out of your agony this very instant!

You see, I've found to my pleasant surprise that one of the best ways to drive traffic to your website is by writing articles. Of course, by “driving traffic", I'm not for a moment suggesting that you rev your car and zoom it aggressively towards some one! "Driving traffic" simply means directing the traffic flow of visitors to your websites. Needless to say, visitors are your potential customers.

Getting your own articles written, distributed and published on the Internet is one of the very best Internet marketing techniques in existence.

Once you have become an author of an article containing quality content, you become an instant authority. When visitors locate and read your article they would obtain some useful information from it. As a result they would most probably appreciate you. When appreciation turns into trust, it is very likely that they would click the link in your article resource box to visit your websites to get more information. The "resource box" is a special space at the end of your article allocated for a short description of the author with the all important URLs of his websites.

Chances of them signing up with you in one of your recommended business opportunities or buy one of your recommended products or services would be greatly boosted.

You get the idea? Of course you do!

The question is how to write the relevant articles which would demand some of your effort and time?

If you have a flare in writing and enjoy doing it, you might decide to write your own articles. You could follow the steps I mentioned above. Otherwise you could join some article cooperatives to get access to private label articles (meaning using others’ articles) or hire someone to write articles for you. Of course you know now that I've chosen to do my own writing as it gives me a sense of achievement and satisfaction knowing that my own articles are touching and benefiting many people across the globe!
