We have described in a separate article the merits of article marketing for driving free traffic to your websites. This tutorial details how you can take an article you have written and submit it to EzineArticles.com for syndication.
To complete the tutorial, you first have to write an article (or outsource to have one written by you). If you’re new to article writing, consider choosing a long-tail keyword to base your first article on.
The advantage is that you can submit the article to EzineArticles.com, as well as re-write it and post it on your website to attract further organic traffic through long-tail keyword searches.
