Best Article Spinner/Submitter

Posted By on July 18, 2012

The first article submitters were quite inferior and had serious glitches, but internet inventors learn quickly from mistakes, and now there are some excellent pieces of software on the market.  Knowing that you don’t want a doctoral thesis, I will quickly do an introductory review of what is presently available in regard to article submission.  Of course, I will not pretend that I am coming close to mentioning all the services and submission software—not even close. But here are some of the ones heard about most.

“Manual” article submission may not always mean that a human is involved in every single step, but humans are more involved to make sure things are done correctly. For example, Article Hut offers premium service to ezines PR 4-7 (registration and one article: first time, $45; the second time, $20).  4Submission distributes three articles for $16, ten articles for $51, twenty articles for $102.

For a monthly payment, other article submission services take your wondrous articles and spew them out on the net in thousands of different nooks and crannies.  They are not super cheap but many customers feel they are reasonable and that the services deliver a lot of value if authors are churning out lots of articles. Here are a few of them with cost per year for premium service/unlimited articles: Content Crooner ($480), My Article Network ($574), Submit Your Article ($574), Distribute Your Articles ($600),  isnare: ($719), and Unique Article Wizard ($804).  I have found many positive testimonials about some of these services, but the one bragged about most frequently seems to be, you guessed it, the most expensive. Yes, Unique Article Wizard is a little complicated and klunky, but it’s hard to beat their coverage.  They claim to responsibly circulate your articles to over 11,000 sites.  It’s difficult to believe that these article services distribute your articles so widely without spewing out hundreds to spam sites.

Though a minority think duplicate content isn’t that big of a deal to search engines, most article marketers swear on the importance of quality article spinning.  The submitters above that are equipped to submit spins automatically are Magic Article Submitter, Mass Creator/Submitter, Automatic Article Submitter, and Article Post Robot.

How many ezine sites, blogs, article directories does each piece of software target?  Well, here are some numbers to crunch. However, please understand that claims aren’t everything. Some submitters that claim to reach 500 may in some cases only send to 350.  That said, Article Bot claims to send to 400, Quick Article Submitter claims over 400, Magic Article Submitter claims over 700, Article Post Robot claims 451, Article Submitter Platinum claims 374, Automatic Article Submitter claims 300+, Mass Article Submitter sends to 10, Article Submitter Pro2 claims 1,550.  It should be mentioned that some software creators claim that their submitter sends to less directories because they picked out only the better quality ones. The truth of that is up to buyers to decide.

For whatever reason, I haven’t bought Article Bot yet, but, for the price, it sure seems to achieve a lot. It’s hard to imagine the average article writer really missing the $25 that the Bot costs. I’ve probably used Quick Article Submitter the most. There aren’t that many ezines you can reach automatically, but semi-automatic is fast, and it ensures you send to the top ezines correctly. Magic Article Submitter has a smooth automatic spinner and it reaches hundreds of ezines that get your articles out on search engines fast. However, it doesn’t focus primarily on the top ezines. I like it for what it does. Mass Article Creator/Submitter had massive hype but not a ton of substance. Many still love the article creator; I bought it but rarely use it. The submitter sends to ten of the top ezines.  Automatic Article Submitter has a lot of positive reviews and it really delivers a punch. I haven’t heard a whole lot about Article Post Robot, but it could be the dark horse. It appears to offer just about every feature the professional article marketer would ever want or need. Article Submitter Platinum is very efficient and sleek.  Callen always seems to put out fine quality products. However, to my knowledge, it does not spin.  Article Submitter Pro2 seems to have lots of fans but I noted a number of vocal detractors also.  Hard to know who to believe. They scoff at the idea that duplicate content can be a problem.

Obviously I’m in a no-win situation.  Many will come down on me because I didn’t praise their favorite service or software to the skies.  However, after comparing all the various article submitters and submitter services, I’d have to say that my top choice is still Article Marketing Robot. For the money, it’s just the best option I can see for giving you great service and all the options online marketers value most.

The Best Article Submitter of Them All

Posted By on July 17, 2012

You’re totally confused. You’ve heard of a million ways to draw traffic to a website or affiliate site, but you have no idea what works. Some say you’ve got to pay big money for SEO, for adword marketing, for 25 pieces of expensive software, and you have to pay “internet gurus” thousands of dollars to train you with their videos or seminars. Others say that the free methods are sufficient to attract enough traffic so you’ll earn significant profit.
Article marketing is probably the best free method on the internet to get good backlinks, improve your search engine ranking, and promote your product. Sure it’s slower and harder work than most methods, but if faithfully and skillfully implemented, in the long term it can pay off. Another plus for article marketing is that if your content is top quality, original, and relevant, it may stay on the internet permanently—or at least for a number of years.
Scads of E-books have been published about many aspects of article writing and marketing. A lot of software has hit the market for article writing, spinning, and submitting. There may still be a few old school article marketers who painstakingly gather their own research, write one original draft that they never spin, and hand-submit these precious articles to 10-20 of the very top ezines.
However, most article enthusiasts have tried some sort of software, or they pay an article spin/submit service to replicate their articles big time. The first article products were slow, klunky, and sub-par. In fact, in some cases they hurt the writer’s effectiveness significantly. The articles they regurgitated were such a jumbled mess that few could decipher the article meaning. In fact, their combinations of words and syntax were sometimes embarrassingly amusing.
But then article submitters gradually became more and more refined and smooth running. Now we’ve got to examine the host of article submitters and decide which piece of software is the best of the best. You want me to tell you which submitter scored an A+ in my extensive research.? Sorry, guys. I just cannot include every single software package of this type. But I promise you, I did list most of the top software by price.

Article Bot $24.95
Quick Article Submitter $49.99
Magic Article Submitter $55
Mass Article Creator/Submitter $77
Article Marketing Robot $97
Article Post Robot $127
Article Submitter Platinum $167
Article Submitter Pro2 $189

In the final analysis, after assessing carefully the prices, the features, the effectiveness, the ease of use, the longevity, and overall success and testimonials of various article submitters, I decided that the Article Marketing Robot wins the battle. The software actually educates itself to spin your articles, it schedules when you want it to, it spins a unique intelligent article to hundreds of ezines. This is the software that I would advise you to purchase. Trust me, I don’t believe you will ever be disappointed. Go for it!

Where do I get Articles?

Posted By on July 17, 2012

If you administrate, own, or assist an Internet-based business or site one definite requirement is articles. Plain and simple, every one who has a site knows this. Even those who don’t have sites but are frequent Internet users realize this as well.

Articles quench the thirst for information, knowledge, and know-how. Plus, the articles provide many bonus benefits for the site. The pluses that articles provide raise a site high in the ranking in search results of keywords and keyword phrases that pertain to or are relevant to a particular site.

They also provide attraction to website visitors. They appreciate the info and link to your site from another site or newsletter. Articles provide for the increase of the confidence and trust level of customers to your site and company.

Many articles are beneficial to both your site and its traffic. When the readers like the articles, they will tell more of their friends, family and peers and recommend your site to them, providing for a larger volume of traffic. You get bigger sales if your traffic trusts and believes in you. Your product or services become easier to sell when they know you know what you are doing and talking about.

So ok, we have established that articles are extremely crucial to a site and to business. Articles are a lifeline and to keep ahead in the game, a site must have articles; it is imperative. There is one dilemma though. Not many people like writing articles. And, what’s worse, many folks don’t know how to pen a good article.

Many website owners would rather spend their time on something else, and unless you’re a big time company, you don’t have the necessary resources to use on a pool of article writers. Plagiarism or copying of other articles is frowned upon and could easily get you into trouble, worst case scenario; a hefty fine and jail time.

So what are the other options?

Well, for starters if you hate writing articles you can outsource this task and others will charge you a fee to provide them. One great site from which to buy cheap, quality article is here: http://www.freelancer.com/affiliates/stevefortosis/
But let’s say that you have zero finances and you can’t afford to hire people to write for you. A last resort is to retain free articles. The first place ce to look at for free articles is the public domain. Here you won’t have problems with copyright infringement and the resulting penalties and fines if you get caught for plagiarism.

Public domain articles are articles freely given to the public for anyone’s use. You can do whatever you wish with them. You can place them on your site, name them as yours, put them in a newsletter; it’s you decision. Always remember, though, that you will have to choose articles that are very relevant to your site.

The downside to public domain articles is that since they are free for everybody, many of your competitors may have access to them as well. Since every site needs to be original and unique, even though in the same niche, this could be a tough predicament. You may also have to edit them a bit to place more keywords and keyword phrases to make them more attractive when people search online.

Another way to get free articles is to allow other sites which deal with the same subject or topic as yours to submit articles to your site.

This would be only to augment your existing content, or else all your articles would be leading to other sites since these articles would have resource boxes with them that could link or direct the readers to the writers’ sites. That’s why it is important to have your own articles; you could use them to link your site to other sites as well.

Tip: to truly feel the impact of what a good article means to you, go for original ones. There are many article writers who do part time and freelance article writing jobs that charges only minimal fees. Check http://www.freelancer.com/affiliates/stevefortosis/
You can get good articles that have all the keywords and keyword phrases you need and people are looking for. The investment you make for these articles will be worthwhile because you could use them to gain many benefits. You hold copyrights to them and you will be able to use them any way you want.

As your articles help you in building your business and your site, you will have more articles to write and maybe then you won’t be having second thoughts about articles. Here’s to your future as a writer.  If you need your articles or projects edited or proofread, contact me at sfort1222@msn.com and check out my website at http://www.editingfactory.org

Seven Secrets of OLD-FASHIONED PUBLISHERS That You Never Knew

Posted By on July 17, 2012

You’ve spent months or even years writing your masterpiece and you sent it out to some regular commercial publishers. After many months of waiting, all you got for your trouble was form rejection letters that said “your book wasn’t what they were looking for at this time. You were heartbroken and thought there was no hope of ever getting published. Here are some facts about those traditional publishers.

1. Traditional publishers lose money on over 85% of the books they publish, so they only accept 2% of those that are submitted.

2. In most cases they only accept manuscripts from established authors who have demonstrated a proven track record and lots of sales.

3. Authors lose all control of their content during the editing process. It can be changed and some of the sections you like the most can be removed.

4. You expect the commercial publisher to pour many thousands of dollars into promoting your book for months. They usually give it one good marketing push, but if sales don’t take off, sayonara to you. They move on to the next books coming off the presses. Authors must still invest an enormous amount of time, energy, and money promoting a traditionally-published book.

5. Authors typically receive 5-10% royalty on the wholesale price of the book, and from that they have to give 15-25% to their agent. Do the math. It ain’t very encouraging.

6. The majority of books published by old-fashioned publishers go out of print within three years. Many books that are stocked on book shelves remain stocked for as little as five weeks before being returned unsold to the publisher.

7. Old-fashioned commercial publishers acquire all rights to your book and keep them, sometimes even when the book goes out of print or the publisher goes out of business! Print-on-demand publishers let you keep the copyright so you can do anything you want with it. If you decide later you want to get it printed yourself by a local printer, the POD publisher says fine.

There is a better way to publish and it is with Outskirts Press. I’ve done extensive research of the top self publishers or print-on-demand publishers.

The Top Eight Reasons Your Writings Need Editing

Posted By on July 17, 2012

Everybody thinks they’re the next Hemingway or Steinbeck. But I guarantee even those famous writers had to have their writings edited over and over before they were finally, finally ready for publication. And if they need it, we ordinary writers definitely need it!

1) Words Aren’t Speled Right
I know, I know. I misspelled a word and you noticed it. I can’t tell you how many books, magazines, and websites I’ve seen with spelling errors. Websites seem worst of all, maybe because they’re created faster and people figure no one will notice the errors. One website owner even whined that he thought a few errors were okay because they showed he was human. He had to be kidding. I’ve known individuals who tossed aside a perfectly good book because they noticed a few errors.
2) Punctuation: Is’nt in the Right Places
Punctuation is all those tricky little marks like commas, colons, periods, apostrophes, dashes and such. They’re a little like traffic signs: they can indicate contractions, lists, emphasis, pauses, full stops. The writing becomes very confusing and jumbled if the punctuation is wrong or perhaps missing entirely. Imagine what would happen if there were no warning or stop lights on our highways. You get the idea.
3) Sentences Awkwardly Are Written
Do you see how even one word in the wrong place can make a sentence klunky and awkward? The order of words in a sentence really matters. If a story or a book doesn’t read smoothly, people often reject it for easier fare. Writers should even consider whether certain phrases should be placed at the beginning or the end of a sentence. If you want to draw attention to a phrase, place it at the beginning of the sentence: “Because he was the scrawniest in a family of eight, Sam always got stuck with the dirtiest and most disgusting chores.” See what I mean, you want to emphasize that Sam is weak and scrawny so you put it first.
4) There Grammar are Atrocious
Grammar includes things like capitalization, using the correct tense, and the correct use of pronouns, adjectives, and adverbs. Subjects and verbs must agree, pronouns must be used with care, and watch the gross overuse of adjectives and adverbs. Probably the most common grammar problem I see is the misuse of there, their, and they’re (and your, you’re, and yore). Grammar matters.
5) People Sometimes Like to Tell you Their Complete, Unabridged Life Story With all the Trimmings— Know What I Mean?
As a free lance editor, very rarely do I have to tell a writer that they’ve got to add 15- or 20,000 words. Usually people overwrite. And it’s awfully easy to become attached to one’s own words. One descriptor for such stuff in the writing world is “purple prose.” More often than not, when I edit a beginner’s novel, I have to cut large portions of boring, extraneous detail from the text. And the beginners are often so in love with their words that, when I’m done, they reinsert the content right back into the manuscript. Sad, but true.
6) Writers don’t Keep it Lucid and Intelligible (Simple)
Somewhere along the way many writers embraced the idea that the bigger the words, the more complex the language, the more impressive the writing. False! The best writing is simple, written at about a seventh grade level. And, believe it or not, writing at a seventh grade reading level can be profound and eloquent. The point is, you don’t impress anyone searching your thesaurus for a bigger or more confusing word to throw into that sentence. Now, of course, there’s always the rare exception—some famous writer you’ve read who has a massive vocabulary. Well, don’t forget, that writer has probably been writing for so many years that he or she has built up a loyal audience—an audience accustomed to the vocabulary. It doesn’t mean you should do it.
I know what you’re thinking. If you’re just skimming this article, you may be thinking that I’m a die hard English teacher writing a piece for high school students. No way. This article is for anyone of any age or station in life who takes out a pad and pen or sits down at a computer to type. As a professional writer, I’m constantly aware that I can write better. And you should feel the same way. Everyone who writes can use an editor. But, if there’s no editor handy, read your pages through five or six times, looking for any of the weaknesses I’ve mentioned. Then go about your business for a day or two and come back and edit it again. It’ll surprise you how many mistakes you missed. I’m not asking you to become a best-selling author. I’m just challenging you to become a more readable writer.

And, by the way, in case you didn’t realize it, the headings are intentionally written wrong just to catch your attention. Point well taken. If you need an editor for your book project, please get in touch. I’ve prepared hundreds of manuscripts for the publisher. See my website at http://www.editingfactory.org
