One method that you can use as a method of helping you write an article is by expanding a previous topic.  You begin my browsing the web to check out what topics which you can use for addressing your customers problem.  Expand this topic using your own writing techniques.  Here you will need to focus on one particular aspect of each technique.  You may want to create large number of article topics which you can then use to as a method of creating more articles so that if you are handling a specific topic you are able to give for example 4 different topics, but inter-related to one another.  This way you will get your customer’s attention by addressing in a block the various stages of the problem.

  2. Yep. Article marketing is a good way to get leads for your business. So I agree with this article very much.

    Also I realized that the leads that do tend to come from an article are much more qualified as well simply because they most than likely read the article before they went over to your website…
