There is tremendous power in writing your own articles. Let me briefly explain this for you if you are not already aware. Let's say that you have a website promoting one or many different products. You could have the best website and the best products available today but you know as well as I do that that doesn't mean a thing if no one sees that website. So instead of going out and joining thousands of safelists and posting to tons of FFA pages, which are just a couple of methods many still use today with very little or no success, I want you to try a different method.
Lets say your website sales a product for people who play golf. For this example, lets pretend it's some new type of golf club to improve your swing. You can develop what the top 5% of internet marketers create and that is called a "pre-sell" page. It can be a personal recommendation for using the product giving examples of how it worked for you and you might want to include a little history about yourself like how long you have played the sport and things you have tried in the past etc. etc... Build a little bit of a rapport with the prospective customer. Let them begin to get to know you and trust you. But never ever make it sound like you are selling something and do not mention a price.
You might try including a link casually within your conversation which will actually be a link to your website. Your customers will be much more inclined to buy from you since they didn't feel like you were trying to "sale" them. You may have mentioned something in your story that they could relate to.
Now once this page is set up, you will want to start writing your articles. I would recommend 10-20 a day if you can. Go through your website and start picking out keywords that you feel someone would try to search for. Build your articles on those keywords. So a keyword could be "Golf Swing". You will want that in the beginning of your title (this will help in the search engine rankings and also to be picked by others who will want to publish your article). Your title could be Golf Swing Tips or Golf Swing Improvement, something to that effect.
Make sure you continue to use your keywords throughout your article but do not overdo it.
I have personally been using these techniques among a couple others to see a difference in my website traffic and my sales.
