How to write Article Marketing Part Two

How long should the article be?Research has shown a range from 250 words to 1000 words per article. Some websites want short articles and some websites want longer articles. Creating an article ranging from 400 to 800 words would make it appealing to a wide range of website publishers. More importantly, does the length of the article fit with the content of the article. Try not to compromise the integrity of the article by artificially fitting it to a prescribed number of words.What is a resource box?A resource box is the place where you can advertise your product, service or website. It is the place where you are allowed to put links that are not directly related to the content of the article.A resource box needs to contain your name, the address of your website, product or service, it needs to have your short tagline or elevator pitch, and most importantly, it should contain a call to action. The call to action is what causes your reader to click through to your site to buy, join, signup or whatever you want them to do.Here are a few examples:More women are reading Anna Payne’s Driving with Anna devotionals.
