Most of us have some hobby or narrow interest shared by only a small segment of the population. Whether it is Chinese kite flying or crewel embroidery, this hobby offers you a good entry point into marketing an article. There is a publication catering to almost every hobby. Find the right one and you will also find a truly interested audience for your work.
Use plugins for your facebook page to automate pulling your blog feed into your page. A lot of people don’t want to leave facebook unless they are given a reason to. Just posting a link to an article may not be enough of an enticement for them to click. Having your content go to facebook will help you develop your readership, plus it makes it even easier for your friends to share content.
A great tip when promoting your online articles is to make an offsite directory of your articles by using sites such as Squidoo or HubPages. People who may not know about your articles will see your articles on these particular directories, which will draw even more potential readers to you.
Post your articles on the most popular article marketing sites for maximum exposure. Ezinarticles, Hubpages, Squidoo and Examiner.com are popular sites that have good reputations for quality content. This attracts more readers to your content, and ultimately to your site. Make sure you add a call to action in each article, and make good use of the author’s resource box with links to your site.
Knowing that the level of shared interest is the key, you are now ready to share your expertise with others.
