Peggy I am so glad you enjoyed this post. And thank you so much for stopping by. Be and stay…
Has your mind ever drawn a blank before writing an article? You know, difficulty finding a starting point?
At one time or another, we all have. So don’t feel like the Lone Ranger.
To help you eliminate some of the common problems when writing your post the checklist below should help:
1. Always have a specific purpose in mind. Before you begin writing you should be concise about what you are accomplishing by writing your article. Does this article clarify the topic for your readers, and attract new prospects, while simultaneously improving the popularity of specific links for your website?
2. Know your demographics. Before writing an article, conduct research on a specific demographic. What are their interests, their experiences, and needs in the chosen topic? What problems are they trying to avoid?
3. First develop a detailed outline emphasizing the topic’s benefits. Methodically organize your article so that when browsing your reader will immediately see their benefits along with the more important points.
4. Stop your reader in his tracks with your title. When you put your most important benefit within your first paragraph–that title should grab the reader’s attention and ‘force’ them to read your first paragraph.
5. Start your article with the most important information. Never keep your most important information for the conclusion! Introduce it immediately and unfold it in the following paragraphs.
6. Try avoiding complex conjectures. Your articles should be written so that even a child can understand them with short and simple sentences. Thereby helping the reader avoid boredom while simultaneously allowing easy reading.
7. Make your article warm and personal. Use ‘you’ often. This speaks directly to the reader. The article should give the reader a feeling of warmth and empathy. Therefore, communicating that you have the same goals or problems as they do.
8. Allow someone from the target demographics to critique your article. You will find this of great benefit. Who else would be a better critic?
9. Rewrite and rewrite again. Not only should you design your article as a great presentation for easy reading. But you must also insure that you use excellent tools such as Grammarly to help proofread your writing for spelling and grammatical errors.
And always remember—the more you write—the better you hone that skill. And after you’ve been in the habit of writing articles for a while it will become second nature to you.
