Five Tips on Marketing Religious Articles

Article marketing has been around for a long time. In the early years, it began with the paper-print form. It was commonly used by business owners to obtain free publicity. Today, the more popular means of article marketing is Internet article marketing. This technique uses submitted articles to article directories to direct website traffic to their websites. For this to be successful, the author of the article must have a website. Just like businesses, religious websites can direct traffic to their websites through the use of submitting religious articles. Articles can be submitted to Christian online magazines, article directories, or simply posted on your website with appropriate meta tags.

Tip One

Begin your religious article marketing by knowing what Christian website you want to invite people to read. Is this your own personal ministerial website? Or do you want to direct people to your church’s website? Decide which religious website you want to direct website traffic. Examine the ministry of this website. Make a list of the features and benefits of this website. This information will help you in researching topics for your religious articles.

Tip Two

The first step to writing the article is brainstorming an attention-getting title. The title will be one of the first things readers will see when they scan the article directory. The readers will read brief summaries of the articles before deciding which article will give them the information they need and then they will open the article. Because of this process, it is most important to find a good, catchy title.

Tip Three

Retrieve the list of topics you gleaned from studying the website of your choice. Take those topics and see if you can break the topics into sub-topics. By doing this you can make many different religious article ideas to write about.

Tip Four

When writing your article, remember to use a conversational voice. Using a conversational voice will hold the interest of your reader. Unlike, using a formal, academic voice which will cause the reader to lose their attention and direct their interest elsewhere.

Tip Five

After you are finished writing your article, it is important to provide important information in your resource box. This information will direct your reader to your website of choice. Here is the information you should include:

• Your Name – Your name and title should always be the first thing included in the resource box
• Your Website Address – The website URL will prompt the reader to check your website for additional information
• Your Elevator Pitch – Is a unique one to three sentence summary which tells the reader information about your background, and why it is important for them to gain more information by visiting your website.
