Article marketing is known as a very effective method of advertising and generating free organic traffic, so let`s dig deeper and have a look at some lesser known ways on how article writing can improve your affiliate home based online business.

It is also a good idea to put your publishing guidelines in your resource box as well i.e. “You are welcome to publish my article provided you include the resource box with links intact.”
Start off by doing a search for the terms ezines and article publishing websites as you will be sure to find many links on these sites to submit your articles. It is worth looking at the ezine directories as some do accept article submissions. Going off topic a little here, but if you do have an email ezine or email newsletter be sure to submit it to the ezine directories for added exposure.
