Let's start by clarifying what article marketing is. When you conduct article marketing, you will submit your article to various blogs that are similar to yours, not article directories. The directories won't really help your SEO and won't result in any traffic as the typical visitor to a directory is not looking to click through to a third party site.
As for making this idea work, you will want to start by first publishing any article on your website first. As source of first publication and original author, you legally have the right to republish or syndicate the article anywhere else on the internet.
Since your main purpose in article marketing is traffic generation and not duplicate content, then you do not have to fear that republishing content will result in any penalty for the sites that it's being put on.
