I am often asked by people who are beginning to use Area-Info.net how to use the site effectively. As I have been thinking about this, I thought the site is very easy to use. But, how do you direct people to use Area-Info.net in a way that benefits the readers and the writers. Here is where some clarification is necessary.
The first concept that you need to keep in your mind is ??????to sell something, don????????t sell.?????? This may seem strange at the outset, but if you think about it, people want information. They don????????t want to be sold.
For example, if you have a company that provides food storage products, would you write an article about your food products? Or, would you write a story about a natural disaster and the importance that a 72 hour survival kit plays in keeping families alive during a natural disaster? People will read the story and think about the need for a survival kit and food storage.
With your biography (and link to your site) at the end of the article, people will be looking for additional information about food storage. It is a natural thing for a reader to follow your link.
Another example might be the person who sells and installs solar systems for homes. A first step might be to submit a press release that is published nationwide. However, a press release is effective one time, unless you have new products to introduce, then additional press releases are appropriate.
But, if you write an article about solar power taking over a neighborhood and how much it is saving the residents of that neighborhood on their power bills, then you have a story that people will read and get insight to the value of solar power. Or, you may have completed research on adding solar power to a business and the savings that a business can enjoy for their power consumption. With your biography and link to your website at the end of the article, you are quickly becoming the ??????expert?????? in the field of solar power.
One of the things to remember is to tell a story. People love reading a story. As a piece of news, include the facts as you share the story. Don Hewitt, the creator of 60 Minutes, based the entire show on this premise. Without a story, no one will listen. And, in this case, no one will read. You want people to read your story.
Area-Info.net is an amazing site for Search Engine Optimization. Your articles will be found through searches when people are looking for information. It is incredible and in fact, I was surprised at the effectiveness of Area-Info.net.
Area-Info.net is here for you to use. Share your stories with others around you and you will be surprised at the readership you enjoy and the recognition you will receive.
To summarize in three words: ??????Tell a story.??????
