Content Marketing on Ask The Trainer Works!
It has been proven that publishing your content on quality websites within your niche is a key aspect of an effective digital marketing strategy. This is especially true in today’s ever changing Internet landscape.
Did you know that approximately 75% of Internet user’s use Google as their primary means of finding information? In 2013 alone there were 2,161,530,000,000 confirmed searches. Pretty staggering, isn’t it? Google also has the strictest quality guidelines in the search engine industry; therefore, it is imperative to play by their rules if you want to be seen by potential customers.
It is no longer viable or effective to simply slap your website link in directories or publish articles on so called content farm websites like EzineArticles, for example. Today, it is all about quality over quantity and most importantly you need to publish your work in quality websites within your niche. This is where we can help you!
If you’re a health and fitness professional, the benefits to you are exponentially higher when your articles are published with us since we only publish articles in the health & fitness niche. Our articles also rank very well in search engines and we proudly run routine duplicate content checks using industry standard tools to make sure your articles stay unique.
For comparisons sake, article directories or content farms as they are most often referred, contain hundreds of thousands of articles unrelated to health and fitness and the content is more often than not low quality. Definitely not a place you should be publishing your quality content.
Now, if this isn’t bad enough, articles on directories do not rank so well in search results like they once did prior to the infamous Google Panda and Penguin algorithm updates, and let’s not forget that the quality content you worked so hard to create is often duplicated all over the Web by spammers, which can lead to Google duplicate content penalties or worse.
If you’re looking to take your content marketing efforts northbound, come join us alongside other successful health and fitness professionals. We’re confident you will be impressed with the results!

Frequently Asked Questions
Our content marketing program is unique in the industry. We not only give all members the same care and opportunity for results but our approach is always quality over quantity and we even take care of all the technical babble for you. This means you don’t have to be an SEO expert or a marketing guru to succeed and can instead focus on writing quality content to wow new customers.
The first thing that sets us apart from the competition is how we handle your content. First things first, quality is of utmost importance if you’re looking to maximize traffic in Google. Remember, they hold 75% of the market so it is important to follow their guidelines to a tee if you want to succeed.
To set you up for success, each and every article you publish with us will be search engine optimized by our experts and we will personally provide images for each one. A well structured and optimized article is a must and our primary goals are to simplify and improve this process for you.
Another key area that makes our content marketing program unique is our approach to social media. Social media is what many in the digital marketing industry would call the new SEO or search engine optimization for those of you who aren’t familiar with such jargon. This means utilizing social media alongside your Google marketing strategy is a must if you want to succeed on the Web.
To help you with your social media marketing, each and every article you publish with us will not only link to your website but also your popular social media networks. In addition to this, when we publish one of your new articles we will tag your business and share it with our own social networks. This twofold approach will help you reach new customers by driving more traffic to your social media networks.
As an Ask The Trainer member, you will be given direct access to our Author Program dashboard where you can easily submit your exclusive high quality articles for publication on AskTheTrainer.com.
Each time you submit an article it will be added to our review queue, and if approved, will then be moved to our processing queue. From there an Ask The Trainer staff member will personally perform image selection and search engine optimization before it reaches the final publication stage.
We have strict quality guidelines to insure AskTheTrainer.com stays high quality and continues to rank well in Google so every time an article is submitted it will go through this process, no exceptions. For example, we check every new article using Copyscape, the industry standard duplicate content checker, and we also run routine checks to make sure published content stays unique.
Once this entire process is complete, your article will be published live on AskTheTrainer.com and it will be tagged with your social media business and shared with the Ask The Trainer social media fan base.
Do you have additional questions about our publication process? Contact us.
Most articles will be published if you follow our editorial requirements. The most common reasons articles don’t get published is because they either do not comply with our editorial guidelines or fail the Copyscape duplicate content check.
Please keep in mind that we are not an article directory and so will only accept exclusive quality content that meets or exceeds our guidelines. Keeping Ask The Trainer’s content exclusive and high quality insures we maintain a strong Google presence and pass the benefits onto our members.
If your articles don’t meet our editorial requirements, we will email you explaining why so you can then make any corrections, however, if we determine that it is an obvious violation, it will automatically be deleted. For these reasons please make sure you follow our guidelines to a tee.
You can access our current editorial guidelines on this FAQ anytime and they are also displayed directly below the post editor in the Author Program dashboard.
You can either purchase an Ask The Trainer PRO membership for $14.99/year or pay the $9.99/year Author Program access fee to join.
