Publishers and webmasters can spend massive amounts of time just trying to gather their articles for publication. The simple process of trying to obtain an article can be frustrating.
The longer it takes for the publisher to acquire your article the easier it is for them to walk away. Some publishers aren't as determined as others and the simple act of procrastination can lead them to never publishing your article.
The easier it is for a webmaster to obtain your article the better chance you have as an writer to send more traffic to your website.
In the time that they could've already copied and pasted an article for publication they've spent wasting it away on actually trying to get it.
So how can you make webmasters and publishers job 100% easier and increase your chance of getting your article published?
1) By reducing their effort as much as possible. Eliminate the effort they'll have to make after they realize they want to publish your article.
2) Offer them the option of acquiring your article right after they've read it. Give them the benefit of copying and pasting your article immediately. Provide them with instant gratification. No delays.
3) Do the work for them. Give them the opportunity to be as lazy as they can be. Provide them with a preformatted HTML version of your article so they don't have to spend the extra time doing it themselves. This option is especially useful for webmasters who publish your articles on their website.
4) Don't stop there. Not only should you offer them an HTML copy, offer a text copy of your article. This makes it very easy if the publisher of your article is being published in an ezine.
5) Make them love you. Offer them the best of both worlds. Eliminate the need for them to request permission to use your article. At most, the publisher should only have to notify you that they are publishing your article.
The less work a publisher has to do the happier they are, and the more articles they can publish.
