Submitting your quality written, and keyword rich articles is certainly your first step to achieving your personal or business related goals. However, many authors wonder why their articles are not being picked up by publishers and webmasters to be placed on their theme related websites.

If you’re willing to follow a few simple steps, you will be on your way to having a successful article writing campaign that will appeal to publishers, webmasters, and also your online readers.

The truth of the matter is, that many publishers and webmasters are looking for fresh, well-crafted content to place on their site that offers their readers valuable information and tips, but they don’t like to accept articles for their sites that show obvious signs of self-promotion of your own business, products, or services.

Selling your business in your article is just going to drive people away, and they will move on to the next article that will help them answer the questions they’re seeking.

An Indispensable Writing Tool

A small but indispensable writing tool if you’re serious about writing is a notebook; I mean the paper kind and not the computer. Yes, that’s right, a notebook. It should be carried around whenever you leave your home or office. Here’s why:

Make your article publishable; avoid some mistakes that many article authors make.

Sending successful articles to ezine publishers could expose your website to thousands of subscribers even millions of readers online. However, to do this successfully, you must compete with other internet marketers. They also send articles to the same ezine publishers as you.

The question is…How to make your article stand out of the crowd?

Alternatively…

Your article goes to the trash bin.

Here are common mistakes many article authors did.

Mistake #1- Wrong-targeted niche market

Many article authors sent their article to the wrong-targeted niche market. Send your article to the targeted audience. Do not try to blast your article to all ezine publishers. For instance, an ezine editor receiving articles not related to internet marketing may not publish them.

Mistake #2- No Subject

You do not write your article headline on your subject email. Many article authors send their article without a subject line. Instead of writing “New Article submission” “article for your publication,” consider “New article – 6 Mistakes You Should Avoid Before Sending Article To Ezine Publishers.”

Mistake #3- Not unique

Your article content is a blatant idea. Topic you write is like the others publishers and not much different. Make your article fresh and unique. Learn something new in your market. Convert what you learned into a unique article. You could write the article on a topic “how to,” “Tips” or anything that come to your mind. Even on article, title “how to avoid SPAM,” or “how to hack hackers back.”

Mistake #4- Advertising article

Your article is more about promoting your product or affiliate program. Writing an advertising article only will kill your business online. Give your website info only in your resource box. Give something free like free e-books, free report, or free download. Make your readers visit your website to receive their free bonus.

Mistake #5- Lack of valuable information

Your article does not educate your targeted audience. People subscribe to an ezine to receive valuable information. If they receive information on a topic they do not want, or not educate them at all, they will unsubscribe. Therefore, ezine publishers will not publish your article. Many ezine publishers provide information as best as they can to their subscribers.

Mistake #6- Spelling problem

There are too many spelling errors on your article. Submitting an article with too many spelling errors only wastes your time. Check, your article twice before publishing it. You could use spell-checking software.

Go to a major search engine and type “free spell-checking.”Most word processor today are built in with spelling check. For instance, MS Office can check the misspelled words for you with underline red color.

Mistake #7- Without format

Make sure your article format is 65 characters per line. The length of your article should be between 500-750 words. Formatting your article will make it easy for the ezine publisher to copy and paste it. You could send your article through MS Outlook Express.

Go to “tools” menu and click “Options.” Click “Send” tab and choose mail-sending format to “plain text.” Then click “plain text setting” tab, select 65 characters for automatically wrap text when sending email.

Mistakes #8- No Personalized message

Personalize your email message with a short cover letter. Personalization of your emails is very important because many ezine publishers receive hundreds of article submission every day. Also, include your article information in your personalized message.

Avoiding those mistakes above will get your article successfully published by many ezine publishers on the net. Good luck.
