Newsletter, ezine and website publishers are very often after fresh content. They are on the lookout for short, informative articles that will appeal to their readership. If you have the skills to write short articles then you can promote your own services by writing for these sites and zines. The only drawback is that most are unable to pay you. That doesn’t matter though. The real benefits will come from having your by-line, blurb and website address printed with the article. In fact that is part of the deal – you allow anyone to reprint your articles as long as they include an author’s box with your details.
So how do you distribute your article?
Easy..! There are websites which allow you to publish your “free” content for other people to copy and reprint.
There are heaps more of these sites. For a start try a search on Google for “free articles”.
Also checkout websites, zines and newsletters in your area of interest or industry. If they accept articles they should have submission detail somewhere on their website.
You can also put your articles on your own website then syndicate them with an RSS feed… but that another story.”
