When writing an article there are a few tips that you can take in and use to ensure that you’re articles are interesting for the reader and in the post I will go into detail about these so that you can write better articles in the future.
Clearly State What the Article Is About In The First Paragraph
This is a pretty basic rule, simply state exactly what you’re article is going to be about within the first paragraph, pretty much like you would with anything. For example, on this very post within the first paragraph I clearly stated what this post would contain.
Organize Your Content Before Hand
Before you begin to write content for an article ensure that you know exactly what you are going to write about and where certain content is going to be placed. This can be done in many different ways all totally depending on your writing style and what suits you best.
Have The Readers In Mind
This rule applies across the whole of content writing, always ensure that you have your readers in mind when writing an article. Don’t go off writing in great scientific detail about things,instead keep your content simple and easy to understand, however do go into detail about some things as your readers may be new to what you write about.
Explain The Points You Are Trying To Make In Short Paragraphs
Short Paragraphs are much easier for the reader to understand, as not many people like to see big chunks of content. Anywhere between three to six lines will usually suffice as much more can seem like a big chunk.
Don’t Be Afraid To Tell Some Trade Secrets
Although this doesn’t seem like a very good tip and even writing this seems wrong, as why would anyone want to use my SEO Services if I told them exactly what to do, however telling people about some of your trades secrets cannot harm, as very often it will actually lead to you brining in more customers as they can tell that you know what you are talking about and will trust in your services. The more you tell, the more demand you can create for your goods.
Give Solid Example Or Personal Experiences To Back Up Your Points
When you are explaining a problem that you have come across within your industry or any generic problems you may have experienced, ensure that you use a concrete example on how to solve the problem or even better, back up how you solved the problem with a personal experience as this can comfort people more.
Emphasize The Benefits Of Your Products Or Services
When you are trying to sell your products or services, sometimes the very best thing that you can do is emphasize and explain the benefits of what you are selling instead of trying to sell the actual product itself. For example explain that they could save time or money as this often entices the reader more and many people on the internet agree with this.
Give Resources To The Readers
When you are talking about something it can end up benefiting you if you try and give your readers some resources so that they can learn more about what you are talking about. This can be done in two different ways, by either pointing them to another page on your website, or by pointing them to another website. Although directing your potential customers to another website might some like a bad idea, it can actually benefit you as good outgoing links can boost your pages page rank.
Get Another Opinion On Your Article
Before you publish an article or just after you publish one try and get other opinions from people you know such as colleagues,friends, etc. This is a great idea as they will very often point out any mistakes that you may have made and it is better for friends to find your mistakes rather than clients.
Ensure You Keep Important Information Near The Beginning
This is vital for content writers everywhere as most people want to see the main information near the beginning as it will keep them interested in what you are writing about.Along with this ensure that you add a summary at the end to sum up everything that you have said.
In summary to all of this, you may not win a prize for what you have wrote but by following these steps you will have produced an effective and interesting article that will keep the readers reading on. If you would like to comment on this or have any more tips leave a comment below.
