Expert Author Showcase: Tiffany Godfrey

Meet EzineArticles’ Expert Author Tiffany Godfrey in Today’s Author Showcase

How do you take on a massive niche like “marriage” and “relationships”? You do what Expert Author and marriage resource specialist Tiffany Godfrey did: You start with your passion, incorporate your experiences, add a dash of personality, and concentrate on what matters most – your reader.

Tiffany found her secret to success was to target a specific subset of her niche. “While many people write about marriage, they focus on couples,” Tiffany commented. “For one, I write specifically for, to, and about Christian women, and their responsibilities in making a marriage work. As a Christian woman, I can easily identify with my readers and I am able to help them see where they can make a positive difference in their marriage without nagging or pushing their husbands away.”

After being introduced to EzineArticles in 2008 by a writing group, Tiffany found article writing to be one of the best ways to reach her target audience. “Article marketing plays a major part in my overall marketing plan because I love to write and I know my target group – Christian women love to read articles that will help them to improve their marriages,” she said. “I really enjoy article marketing and EzineArticles is a great venue for this type of marketing.”

Hi Alan:

Thanks for the question. It really depends on what topic I’m writing on. Since I do marriage articles, some that really touch the hearts of my readers include marriage communication and marriage problems.

I wish you the best in your writing efforts. :)

But people have different personalities. How could you balance relationship and try to evade clashes?

Lilibeth: I’m assuming you’re referring to marriage. The biggest thing you’ll need to do is compromise. Sometime your spouse will come from a totally different angle, but this is where communication comes in. Check out my site on marriage communcation. http://www.committedwife.com

Kudos Joyce! As you well know there will be good times and bad times, but love is a decision and thanks for deciding to love your husband and not give up on your marriage! People need to understand that nowadays. :)

Thanks for your encouragement Dr. Goodstone. I want people to see Jesus Christ and His love reflected through marriage. It’s often not seen in the Christian community, but for those of us who are able to press on in marriage happily, my goal is for us to encourage others to want more of Him.

Marriage is not a game, but a journey and the destination is growth and becoming more like Jesus Christ. It’s not always easy, but God will give grace to each one of us who will acknowledge our sins and weaknesses so we can accept His strength.

Trust me, when you marry the right person, marriage is worth it! :)

I want to target women and teens to help them feel and look beautiful about themselves without having to scar their body up permanently. Thats why I have a passion for beautiful crystal stick on body jewelry. Do you have any advice that may help me get my passion out there. I love your enthusiasm about your writing and wanting people to understand the love of Jesus.

Hi Cindy:

I’m glad you have a passion for women and teens. They really need someone to care. I would first say do your research on these target groups. You may want to start with one group first since they each have different needs. Consider who your greatest need is and which group would be more open to wanting your product. Start checking out discussion forums. Look at Yahoo answers and type in some keywords related to your target group. Find out what your target group likes to read and watch on TV or the Internet.

Start doing some article writing. Research is very important. I would hate to see you create anything only to find out that no one really has a need for your products or articles. Hope this helps.

Tiffany, enjoyed your site. I’m writing about a very broad subject, “Internet Marketing” but I’ve broken it down to “information solutions.”

From personal experience we don’t always get the whole pie, just a slice. I know that’s to keep people buying their products. I’m too smart to fall for that.
