How to Integrate Social Media with Article Marketing

Article marketing is a highly effective method for driving traffic to your website because it provides valuable content, builds incoming links and boosts search engine rankings. Instead of relying on article directories to syndicate your content, integrate social media sites to expand your audience.

Why integrate social media with article marketing?

Why do even the large retail stores use Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to interact with their customers? Well, these social media properties are becoming more and more popular as an easy way for visitors to share content. For example if a person finds a good deal or a great article they can instantly pass it on to their Facebook friends by clicking the facebook icon that’s on the sales site.
