Articles, Articles, Articles?

Internet marketing people understand the value and importance of creating and submitting articles in order to generate traffic to one's website. After all, what good comes to a home based business if no one visits their website?

A good part of any marketer's day is taken up with reading and commenting on other peoples' blogs and reading articles written with the express intent of generating traffic and buzz.

At the risk of sounding like a fussy spinster school marm I gently remind anyone who is spending precious time cranking out articles and blog posts to use the Spell Check feature on your computer!

It's really disconcerting to read copy that has gross spelling errors but even more to the point than misspelled words is that poor writing makes the writer seem far less credible and less professional than the expert he or she purports to be.

Surely your grade school teacher taught you how to use the dictionary. You are even likely to have access to a dictionary from your browser's toolbar. PLEASE USE IT.

You go through the effort to research and create articles; when submitting them, it only takes a moment to make sure there are no errors. Run a spell check on the article submission site before you publish your work. Your grade school teacher will not be present now to look over your shoulder and prevent your mistakes so it is your responsibility to make sure it could earn the grade of "A."

Many internet marketers are highly adept at text messaging; this is laudable. But in article writing, text messaging is not only inappropriate but inaccurate.

Article writing and article submission is a key ingredient to the success of any internet marketer who seeks to make money online. Do it well, do it correctly and do it with style. Your rewards will be great and you can know that you gave article marketing your best effort.

Wouldn't your teacher be proud of you?
