As website owners or Internet Marketers, we are always on the lookout for the best, effective yet non-expensive way of promoting our business/websites. However, the best online promotion tactic may not be the most expensive of all. Here's why.
Having a website on the Internet without any traffic is just as good as a dead duck lying on the road. Traffic is our passion. The more traffic that we get, the more probability for increased sales/ conversion to your opt-in lists.
The problem with the online promotion is that the more traffic that you want to get the more time and money that you should be willing to spend. Think of pay-per-click war, search engine optimization or even banner advertising, which of these online site promotion tactics, you or beginners out there, are willing to commit to get long term and constant free traffic to your website?
The only best solution for this matter has always been article writing and submitting them to online article directory(s) or article submissions services. Sure this may cost a little bit of time and money to you, but at the end of the day the results you'll get are simply better than all other online marketing tactics that you've heard of.
Here are the top 5 reasons why you should write articles and submit your free reprint articles to article content directory(s).

Eventually, your website will have better chance of ranking up higher in the search engines.
Sure, you can fire up your reciprocal link exchange campaign to request backlinks from other website owners, but in reality this will never work out as effective as you would expect to be.

After submitting to articles directories, once approved, you'll instantaneously gain increased of websites (article directories) pointing to your website through the url in your bio.
Bring in Tons Of Traffics
Having multiple article directories pointing to your website is one thing.

But it has certainly brought in lots of potential competitors, spammers and nonsense jokers who simply brag about just how good their products/ services are.
