If you have submitted your articles to EzineArticles.com you have made a wise choice. Out of all the ezines that I am aware of, this particular one is the most active and well maintained site. No doubt featuring your articles here will get you noticed. You can ratchet everything up a notch by taking some additional steps to promote your good works.
Most of the articles that I have penned have been viewed at least 100 times each. One of my articles, 99 High Paying Keywords: The Secret is Out!, is about to surpass 1000 page views. I cannot even begin to tell you how much the nearly 80 articles posted by me have helped me get the attention I need in order to adequately market my product: me! Without posting to this site, a lot of my newer contacts would remain unknown to me. In retrospect, I would consider that to be a tremendous loss!
Beyond placing articles here, the following steps have helped me tremendously. They can help you too!
1. Send URLs for select articles to those who might find them interesting. For example, a review I wrote on a local railroad museum was forwarded by me with a note to five members of the museum's board. I received back the nicest response from one member who thanked me for bringing attention to their organization. You can generate goodwill -- and additional business -- by sharing favorable articles directly with those whom you write about.
2. Discuss the article on related forums. Christopher Knight personally gave me a "big thumbs up" over my "99 High Paying Keywords" article and that gesture alone has brought me some very good attention. However, when I shared links to the article on a pair of SEO sites, the page views took off. Consider joining forums or sharing on existing forums you are a member of your expertise. If you post, they will click!
3. Link back to EzineArticles.com. Whether you have a website or include it within your signature, you can promote EzineArticles.com by making mention of their service to you. Several people have known that I was a writer; I received "added prestige" when they saw that I was published and syndicated through Christopher Knight's site.
4. Contact publishers directly. If someone is publishing your articles, alert them the next time an article is published by EzineArticles.com. Everyone likes fresh material and the publisher will like the custom service you provide by your direct contact.
All in all, the more you publish the more your name will "get out there" as an expert in your chosen field[s]. You can take everything a step further by actively marketing your articles to the appropriate people. You will help yourself, EzineArticles.com, and other authors. So, how does "that" maxim go? Oh, yes: a rising tide lifts all boats.
