Give something like free e-books, free report, or free download. Make your readers visit your website to receive their free bonus.

If they receive information on topics they are not interested in, they will unsubscribe. Therefore, Article Directory publishers will not publish your article. Many Article Directory publishers provide information as best as they can to their subscribers.
Mistake #6 – Spelling problem
There are so many spelling mistakes on your article. Sending article with too many spelling mistakes only waste your time. Check your article twice before you submit it. You could use spell-checking software for this.
Almost all the common text editors today have in-built spell checker. For instance, MS Office can check the misspell words for you with red color underline.
Mistake #7 – Without format
Make sure your article format is 65 characters per line. Length of your article must be between 500-750 words. Formatting your article will make Article Directory publisher easy to copy and paste it. You could send your article through MS Outlook Express.
Go to “tools” menu and click “Options.” Click “Send” tab and choose mail-sending format to “plain text.” Then click “plain text setting” tab, select 65 characters for automatically wrap text when sending email.
Mistakes #8 – No Personalize message
Personalize your email message with a short cover letter. Personalizing your emails is very important because many Article Directory publishers receive hundreds of article submission every day. Also include your article information in your personalize message.
If you are capable of avoiding those mistakes above, you can successfully enter all the top Article directories without much fuss. Thank you.
