Writing for websites -- content, as it is called -- is an important task for webmasters. Your site must be current, relevant, and interesting in order to attract and retain visitors. The following are some tips I have successfully employed in order to keep my websites relevant:
1. Write with Passion. There is nothing worse than reading a dull article! If you aren't interested in what you are writing about, then please don't! Better yet: Join one of the excellent content
producing sites on the internet. Ezinearticles is a leader in this category.
2. Write with Clarity and Brevity. Do your articles make sense? Are you using too many complicated and arcane terms? Remember, the internet is visited by people for whom English is not their primary language. In addition, our attention spans online are very short. Needlessly long, verbose articles will lose your reader's attention. If you lose your readers, you will lose readership [members]!
3. Write with Purpose. If you are trying to sell a product, then sell it. Stay focused on the subject at hand and do not go off into tangents. If there is something else you want to mention unrelated to the subject, then write another article. Link it to the primary article if they are related. Never confuse or frustrate your readers!
4. Write with Style. Everyone has their own style of writing. Effective content writing engages the reader and piques their interest. Write as if you are having a conversation with your readers. Why do you think blogs are so successful?
Every successful writer knows when to quit... writing that is. Your point[s] have been made and it is now time to come to a conclusion and allow your readers to absorb what was written. Just like I am doing now!
