The 40 Article Challenge

Thank you to EzineArticles expert author Suzanne Lieurance for creating the “40 Article Challenge” to her list and blog (Have You Harnessed the Power of Article Marketing?)… where she encouraged her readers, clients and friends to create 40 articles and submit them to sites like ours before the end of the year.

EzineArticles expert author Yvonne Perry was the first to complete the challenge, followed by EzineArticles expert author JJ Murphy and many more.

Suzanne told me that 22 writers accepted the challenge and have been writing up a storm this month! Nice work! An important distinction that Suzanne shared with me is:

“I think it helped listeners better understand that article marketing is not about marketing your articles. It is about USING your articles to market yourself and your business.”

Lastly, One of the Freelance writers from New York is in a member of Suzanne’s co-op, Linda Della Donna –> interviewed me on (Article Writing & Marketing Strategies). Hope you enjoy the interview.

Thanks, Chris!

We all really enjoyed the 40 Article Challenge. I’m sure I’ll start another challenge in the New Year!

The article challenge was a great impetus to get articles written and published. Plus the network of e-friends was a great support.
