Either after I've pasted my content in, or even before, I like to find images that best suit the subject matter. These will either have to be photos you've taken yourself, or are public domain. Or it might come with conditions, for example, you might have to credit the photographers name and/or provide a link to their site or profile page.
Some people rely on a Google Image Search, but those images aren't free. There are plenty of good free stock photography sites out there, just be sure to follow their rules as to attribution.
Next, think about whether or not there are Amazon products that will complement your topic. If I were writing about dogs there are plenty of products you could choose from. Dog toys, accessories (leads, collars, etc), grooming products, even books. Even more specific than that, if you published an article on say Pugs you'll find that there are books (dozens in fact) about that particular breed.
Always keep the product placement in context with the content. Go to the effort to pick and choose the products you think best fit with the theme of your article.
I'm absolutely delight to add Zujava and Wizzley to my online publishing arsenal. I wish there were more sites like these. And I'm glad that there are times I can be the one to announce the launch of these sites to my fellow authors.
I have only heard of this site recently. Had no idea it was a newer site, knew nothing about it at all until after having read this introduction to Zujava. Thanks for the heads up on another site for writers to create content.
Hello from another Zujava and Squidoo user. You are perfectly right. It is never a good idea to put all your eggs in one basket. I can add Zujava is very SEO friendly especially for longer articles (say six, seven hundred words), it is indexed very fast and being there from the beginning gives us a privilege to participate or even co-create some features we would like to have on other platforms, but don't get a chance for that.
Enjoy your Zujava jurney!
Hi Glen! Happy to be your fan here too! It looks like a cool site and I am definitely joining. Thanks for the information.
Hello Glen. Great to see my favorite avatar (yours above) again. (It's rmcrayne from HP.) I joined Zujava through your article link (either this one or HP). I've written an article on shoulder pain, just need to get my photos and video done before publishing.
Hi Glen, Thanks for the tip on having three modules on Zujava. Thanks for writing the overview here.
