Writing Articles for Publicity

I don't know about you, but as an African American entreprenur on a budget, I am always looking for cost effective ways to promote my site. A great way to promote your product or service is to write articles for various publications. With so many online publications, there is always a demand for article submissions. Every site wants to provide informative, refreshing content to their viewers. The smaller ones in particular, are often eager to support freelance artists who are interested in free publicity in exchange for unpaid article submissions. They get the content and you get the clicks, you can’t get any better than that in the search for low budget marketing techniques. Turn your experience and knowledge into free publicity. Consider writing a howto piece, and advice column, or editorial. Just make sure that it's related to something you are passionate about, and gives you an opportunity to showcase your content.

Here are a few African American Websites that request article submissions:

Multiple Shades of You Online is always in search of talented writers and entrepreneurs who are interested in reaching our audience. Review our advertising page to find out how you can see your content on msoy.
The Griot Article Submissions
Black Electorate accepts articles
Afro America Article Submissions
Drum Beats Magazine requests article submissions be sent to:
The Minority Business
The Black Professional Network

Also get in the habit of posting your articles on African American Forums and News groups. The more quality content your produce, the more you can profit for your content!
