Myth - If I write just a few articles that will be enough to meet my needs for marketing my business and creating prospects.
Reality - Are you one of the people that believe you can write just a few articles and that will take care of everything?
So many beginning writers get caught in this trap. They labor and write a few articles, post them to an article directory, and then sit back and wait for the prospects and profits to roll in.
Of course this does not happen and then they give up on article writing and marketing, believing that articles do not work for building your practice.
Writing articles works, most people don't work it
The reality comes in two parts:
Part 1 is that article writing and article marketing does work, and works really well when done right.
Part 2 is about doing it right. Some people are just not willing to put in the time and the work to build it right.
Hitting critical mass
When I first began posting articles, a few articles brought a tiny trickle of prospects. When I hit 25 the trickle got bigger. By the time I hit 250, a good critical mass, the trickle turned into a nice stream.
Now at 705 articles, if this one is accepted, I get a flood of propects everyday, to the point where I could not stop them from coming in if I wanted to, and I surely do not.
