You’ve finally done it! You’ve written your article, looked it over, tweaked it ….and looked it over… again and now…you are ready to publish! Now what?

Two things need to be added to your article. A how to publish statement that is added just before your article and your resource box or bio added at the end of your article.

Here is an example of a how to publish statement:

“Please feel free to publish this article on your web site and/or in your e-book or newsletters with the authors resource box included and without any changes to the article. (Add your contact e-mail)”

If you would like to be notified if they are using your article, add “A complimentary copy of your ezine or notification you are using this article would be appreciated.”

At the end of your article is your resource box or bio. This is a powerful marketing tool within itself. Here you want to give your readers valuable information about your web site, yourself and-or your services.

An example using my resource box or bio can be seen at the end of this article.

Next, begin submitting your article to article submission sites. These sites are specifically for articles and are where ezine publishers and web masters go for free content for the ezines and web sites.

Below are a few sites to get you started. The first few Article Submission Sites are Yahoogroups. You have to be a member of the group and each group will have a subscribe address. Joining and submitting is very easy. Just go to their site and follow from there.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/article_announce
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/aabusiness
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ap-shorts –400 words or less
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/free-content

A search on Yahoogroups for article submission sites specific to targeting the types of reader you are seeking will generate a multitude of sites to submit to.

The next few groups are specific online sites for submission. Once you are on their site, there are directions for submitting your article. Again submission is very easy.

http://www.marketing-seek.com
http://www.makingprofit.com

Here you can list your e-zine, your e-book and affiliate programs as well as articles!

Join a free autoresponder and place your article on “autopilot” to be available 12-7 when someone would like to use your article. Try Getresponse.com or Sendfree.com

Place your article on your web site or create a page for listing your articles that are available by autoresponder. You will also want to create a 2nd autoresponder notice, a Thank You letter for using your article.

As you begin to write more and more articles and have more autoresponder addresses, create a list of your articles and make your list available by autoresponder also. For example readers can receive a list of my articles by sending an e-mail to mailto:articles-simplebiz@g…

Using your articles on autoresponder is a simple, yet powerful way to receive free publicity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

Begin your article submit list. As publishers and web masters notify you they are using your article, add their e-mail address to your list of names of people who have published your article. Remember to send a thank you note to each person who send you notice they are using your article. This builds great PR.

When you write your next article, send a copy for their consideration to be used in another issue. This is a win-win situation. The publisher doesn’t have to go “looking” for a quality article to publish, yours is already there, and you have another article published!

I get just as excited today when someone notifies me they are using my article as I did when I first started writing! To see an article you have written in print on someone else’s site or in their ezine is an awesome experience! That is a very high honor and compliment! I love it!

Now go ahead, you’ve checked it, tweaked it and checked it again. It’s ready! Submit that article you’ve written because now, you know exactly …What To Do!
