Article Marketing: The Net Marketer's Secret Weapon

May 26, 2008
Writing a quality article is never easy. There have been those that have tried it and went away disillusioned by the results. Why? There are a number of possible reasons for this. Let's take a look at a few possibilities.

Poor quality. Folks, let's face it. The demand is for quality content. Poorly written or hard to understand articles just doesn't cut it. People demand information that makes sense and that they can use in what ever niche they are interested in.

No Clear Message. Similar to the poor quality reason mentioned above, an article that doesn't have a clear message in it will often leave the reader wondering what the article was about. That's even if they finish it at all. Odds are, if the readers doesn't finish the article, they probably won't visit the site either.

Boring. If the article is nothing but a dry presentation of facts and figures, odds are it won't get read. Many readers have a tendency to skim an article first before going back to read it again. Most readers don't want to read just facts,they want to know how it applies to them. They want to be entertained.

Presenting "just the facts" is not exactly considered light reading to the majority of readers. Keeping the reader's interest is one of the keys to being successful at writing articles.

So, what's the solution and how does one write those interesting articles?

Being organized is one of the keys to successful article writing. Being able to get your ideas across to your readers in a clear concise manner goes a long way to keeping your readers happy. With this in place, you will be able to get your message across to your readers and issue that call to action that will get your readers' interest up and keep it up.

Writing or creating an interest grabbing title is a major key. If the title is boring, odds are your article will not be read. This is the first thing your potential readers will see so try to work out titles that make them want to stop to read what you have to say.

Get passionate about what you are writing about. I don't know about you, but I have read many articles about the subject of Internet Marketing. Some promoted one technique or another as their success strategy. The articles that stood out in my mind the most were the ones that the writer was impassioned about. It was evident in how the article was written and it kept my interest.

Still others gave good information, but lacked that zeal I mentioned earlier. It was very evident in the way the article was put together. It was clear, it was concise. But there was little sparkle in it.

Another successful writing tip is to get personal with your readers. While this is not always possible, there are times and places in your article writing that you may be able to share a personal experience. It may be in the form of a tip, something you learned, or a discovery you made. The point is you are talking to your readers not at them.

Being able to write great articles does not come easily to every one. Some are gifted with the ability to express their ideas in clear meaningful ways. The rest of us have to work at it. Writing great articles is not impossible, it just takes work and development of your particular writing style. Using the tips mentioned above, you can be successful.
