Top Article Writing Tips

Feb 10, 2008
There are ways in which you can write and style your article to optimize its value to your website, and the first in which you could consider doing this is.... Pay a professional to do it for you! There are people out there who will sell you their services and provide you with an article that is guaranteed to increase traffic to your website and promote your business!

If you don't want to pay a professional to do this job for you, there are a few guidelines you should follow and the first would be to make sure you check your article before submitting it anyway! Spelling and grammar mistakes will not make you or your service look good, it will make you look shoddy and you are less likely to get any traffic from a bad article! You should also ensure it makes sense. You could get somebody else to read the article and give you any feedback, because you've written it, of course it will make sense to you!

Secondly, you should keep it short and to the point. People get bored and if your article rambles on for hours about this and that, the reader will change the internet page! In the first paragraph, you should aim to describe exactly what your article is about. If that is what the reader is looking for, they will keep reading and want to know more. You should also make sure any important information that you would like your reader to know is at the top of the article, in full view, so they will have no chance but to read it!

Write your article in points. You don't have to do the traditional:

* Point one
* Point two

Etc. Etc. If that's not the look you are going for, then don't do it, just make sure each paragraph is dedicated to another point, and have the first words of the paragraph the title (as such) for that point. Putting your article in this way will make it easier for somebody to read, rather than just pages and pages of endless words with no break.

Another thing you should add to your article, where possible, is examples to back up whatever it is you are saying. Give personal experiences so that whole thing doesn't seem too formal, but whatever you do, do not make your article an advert. Increased hype will just put people off, and you will have defied the point of article marketing completely!

Last but not least, give links to things that back up the points you are making. If you are talking about a good website, add a link to it. If there is a website with information that backs up your article, add a link to it. It's simple and just takes a little bit of common sense.

The best advice I can give you, if you decide to take up Article Marketing for your business or service, is to think about what you would like to read, and how you, as a reader, would like the article to be formatted. Use common sense, and keep it short and sweet. Follow these guidelines, and your article will be great!
