If you are a blogger, or the one responsible for your business website, you know just how important content is to your website. You have to have content and lots of it for regular articles, to keep your newsletter fresh, and for your blog. Many people just panic and shut down entirely when thinking about all of the content and constant updating that their internet marketing effort needs.
So, where can you go for help? Where can you get articles for your website? Well, you have several options, each with its pros and cons.
Nicole Dean, a successful Internet Marketer, recommends these methods to get started.
1. Write it all yourself. The best option but this is difficult to keep up constantly without letting quality slip.
Benefits: You’ll save money and the material will be written in your own style.
Drawbacks: Time and energy. Not everyone is a skilled writer.
2. Hire someone to write your web content. You can hire skilled ghostwriters to write your content on your behalf that will be 100% yours.
Benefits: Save time.
Drawbacks: Costs are around £25 per article depending on your technical needs. It is hard to find someone who you enjoy working with who provides the quality that you need at a price you can afford but it is worth the hunt.
Another huge benefit of choosing one of the above options is that you can use the articles several times and submit them to lots of Article Directories to help with back links and your marketing efforts at the same time.

3. JV or Interview Others. A good way to get content for your website is to have others to write it for you, preferably for free. How? Try conducting some interviews with business colleagues, customers or suppliers and post them to your site. You can also try asking friends to contribute unique articles of relevance and interest.
Benefits: Free and provides a variety if you use voice recordings occasionally!
Drawbacks: You’re relying upon others to provide your content. They may or may not be willing to help.
4. Article Directories. Have a good look around the article directories to find some interesting articles and you can republish them on your website for no cost.
Benefits: Free and very quick.
Drawbacks: Each one must link back to the author.
5. Private label rights content. PLR articles are also useful. For very little cost, you can get content that you can edit and use on your website quickly and easily. Remember, you must ensure that you’re getting only top quality articles and that you’re not sharing them with thousands of other website owners – tricky but the more you edit, the more they become your own work. If you are lucky enough to find a quality PLR site, stick with it.
