The Benefits Of Article Submissions For Hypnosis Sites by Jon Rhodes

The online world is growing at an alarming rate, and this trend is set to continue for quite some time yet. Nothing has revolutionized our lives as the internet has done since perhaps the advent of the television. Many businesses have cottoned on to this huge global potential, and have poured massive resources into their online ventures.

Hypnotherapists too have acknowledged this potential, and have quickly joined the clamor to have an online presence. Some hypnotherapists sell their products on line, such as hypnosis CD’s, downloads, books, scripts etc. Others are content to use the web as an information resource for their practice, allowing people to look online for further information when they have read their business cards.

Not only can owning a web site broaden a hypnotherapists’ client base, it can also give an increased credibility if they have a professional looking web site that displays their knowledge and experience. What many hypnotherapists (and indeed people in most other markets) notice when they join this global phenomenon of seemingly endless potential, is that initially very few people actually visit their sites. You set up your brilliantly designed site, bursting full of great information and what happens? Not much.

Visitors trickle in at best This can be both surprising and demoralizing when you consider that there are over 1.5 billion people online in the world, and the hours of time and money that you may have poured into this online venture. In order to attract visitors you need to market your site. You need to tell people you’re there. Even if you have a great site full of wonderful content, no one will know its there until you tell them.

Just like you could be the greatest football player, singer or actor in the world, if no one knows about you, then the offers will not come rolling in. One of the best ways to improve your online venture is to write articles, and submit them to popular article sites, particularly those in your niche. There are several benefits to writing articles to market your website. It is customary for you to leave a bio and a link to your site at the end of your article. The link is very useful for two reasons.

People may like what you have written and decide to click on your link to get to know more about you and your business. They will arrive at your site already with a positive perception of you, and may be more receptive to using your services and buying your products. Also search engines heavily regard links pointing to a site as indicting that it is a quality and trustworthy site. They send automated ‘bots’ all around the web, that go around adding up the amount of links you have pointing to your site.

The search engines will then promote your site up their rankings the more links you have, giving you even more traffic. Having many good articles floating around the internet can also help establish you as an expert in your field. It helps build up your trust and reputation, which can’t be all that bad for business. People will come across your (hopefully!) intelligently written articles and hold you in high esteem. Just think, people may even start quoting you within their own articles, and telling each other about you. Many article submission sites allow people to use the articles you submit for their sites or blogs.

Therefore if you write a good quality article, the chances are that other people will take your article and re-publish it on their sites and blogs, with your link and bio still attached. This helps you automatically build even more links to your site, and further enhances your reputation. So why not give it a go? There are many great benefits to article marketing, it builds you direct traffic, helps you site rise through the search engine ranking, and is great for your reputation. Perhaps I’ve left one of the greatest benefits until last. It is usually free! It doesn’t cost you anything, except the time it takes to write the article. This is free advertising that actually has many advantages over paid advertising. Customers will probably warm far more to a well written article offering them help, than a paid for banner or Adsense advert.

They can almost feel like they know you when they read your contributions. Not only that, once you have written an article, you can potentially benefit from it for many years as new people discover it and read it, and new people continue to place it on their sites and blogs. So what are you waiting for?! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
