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.”
