Article marketing remains to be one of the most effective strategies that can help you build your credibility in your chosen niche as well as provide valuable one-way backlinks and targeted traffic to your sites. However, article marketing can be quite a tedious job. Aside from writing the article (or having it written for you), you need to create author accounts and submit your articles to the various article directories. This task is manageable if you only have a handful of directories to submit your articles to but what if you want to submit them to hundreds of directories? How can you possibly take care of it all?
The answer – use an article submission software. To help you choose the right article submitter that fits your needs, you may want to compare the features of the top article submission software in the market today. Here are some of them:
Article Marketing Robot
Article Marketing Robot (AMR) is considered by some online marketers to be the most effective submission software for article marketing. Using this program, you can:
- Automate the task of creating and confirming author accounts. AMR reportedly has one of the highest success rates when it comes to account creation. Moreover, you don’t even have to worry about filling in all those captchas – AMR can take care of it automatically.
- Submit your articles to about 2000 article directories. As a result, you will get a lot of backlinks and generate more traffic to your sites. AMR also updates its article directory database regularly so you don’t have to worry about outdated links.
- Drip-feed or blast your articles all over the internet. AMR allows you to schedule when you want to submit your articles. This can be very valuable in view of the recent changes implemented by Google with regards to link velocity. As you may know, Google now gives more value to backlinks created over a period of time rather than those that are created in one go.
- Come up with unique versions of your articles. AMR has a built-in article spinner so you can spin your articles prior to submitting them to various directories. It can spin articles on synonym, sentence and paragraph level so you don’t have to worry about it being discredited by Google.
- Upload your articles to all your WordPress niche blogs.
- Easily find your published articles with its live URL reporting feature.
- Convert your links to RSS so you can submit them to various RSS directories.
AMR comes with a 60-day 100% money-back guarantee.
Article Demon works in almost the same way as AMR does. It allows for automated account creation, lets you add your own article directories into the database, retrieve live URLs of your published articles and save them in a .CSV file, ping your links, and even allows for contextual linking.
The software also allows you to choose the most appropriate category for your articles, lets you submit your articles over a specified period of time, and choose your submission speed. Additionally, Article Demon comes with its own article spinner and rewriter so you can submit unique articles to each directory you choose. Article Demon also comes with lifetime free upgrades and a 60-day money-back guarantee so you can be sure that you have your investment well protected.
Brad Callen’s Article Submitter
Brad Callen’s Free Article Submitter comes in three versions – Free, Gold and Platinum. The Free Article Submitter gives you access to more than a hundred article directory submission sites while the Gold version grants you access to about 700 article directories.
However, while the free version comes at an unbeatable price ($0), it is still not yet fully automated. You have to manually select the directory you want to submit your article to and then hit the ‘Submit’ button after you are satisfied that the submission fields are all completely and accurately filled up. If you are using the Gold version, you basically have to go through the same process, but you will have more article submission sites at your disposal. On the other hand, the Platinum version is fully automated so you can submit your articles to hundreds of article directories with a single click of your mouse.
Instant Article Submitter
What can Instant Article Submitter do to help you with your article marketing campaign? Much like AMR, Instant Article Submitter (IAS) facilitates one-click account registration, allows for scheduled article submission, and gives a detailed report on your submission status. Additionally, IAS also offers the following features:
- Image verification support. This feature allows you to submit your articles to directories requiring captchas without having to fill in any codes.
- Category selection. The software allows you to choose the appropriate category for your articles to increase the chances of having them accepted.
- Directory selection. IAS lets you choose the directories you want to submit your article to. It currently has 206 directories in its database, but you can add your own directories if you want to. You can also save the directories you selected and retrieve them whenever you want.
- Resource bio inclusion. If you are submitting your articles to directories that do not have an author’s bio section, IAS will automatically add it at the end of your articles.
- Instant Article Creator. IAS comes with Instant Article Creator, a software that can help you write good quality articles in less time.
While some naysayers claim that article marketing is dead with changes in search engine algorithms, it remains to be an effective tactic that can help improve a site’s ranking while bringing in direct visitors who follow the links in the articles. In fact, with the crackdown on black hat SEO methods, article marketing may actually increase. With good articles, with varied links and anchor and responsible submissions, article marketing can only help with visitors and rankings.
