If you’re like most prolific writers/authors, you wear a few hats or “author name brands” when it comes to your favorite topic or expertise.
A common question I got asked 4 times a day is this:
I’m an author with 2 or more areas of expertise. How to setup my account with you so that each article does not confuse my reader with my other articles that might not be related to the topic?
Solution: Create either variations of your name or create multiple pen names for each of your areas of expertise.
Example of variations of your name that we would deem acceptable: (ficticious name pulled out of the blue for this example)
Sally Jo Wilson
Sally J Wilson
Sally J. Wilson
Sally J. W.
These are all author names that we would allow with our system. Just create an alternate author name for a variation of your name and send in all of your articles on one topic under that alternate author name.
To create an alternate author name, log in to the members only area, click on ADD ALTERNATE AUTHOR, read the rules and add the name. Then, when you click on SUBMIT ARTICLES, you’ll see a drop down box at the top. You can select which author name you want to use for each article.
Example: You use “Sally Wilson” for all of your articles on how to potty train your child and you’d use “Sally Jo Wilson” for your articles on how to improve your golf game.
Your Article Reports will then break down the traffic for each type of article by author name.
Outside of EzineArticles.com, how do you handle this in the marketplace? I’m curious. :?)
