Over the past year alone, I have seen tons of new software and
tools come out to help article marketers. Article submitting
software, article creation software, private label articles,
and tons of ghostwriters to help get your articles flowing. But
I am still very old school when it comes to article marketing.
The best things that I use is the same thing I used over 15
A notebook and a pen.
Nothing can replace fresh ideas that pop in your head and
having the ability to write them down.
I always carry a notebook with me. You never know when an
article idea will pop up in your head.
Standing in line at the bank, waiting to checkout your
groceries at the supermarket, etc. etc
Sometimes an idea for an article pops up, but you havent
written the entire article. Create an outline.
Remember outlines. We learned them in school and thought they
were huge time wasters. They come in so handy now.
Create a simple outline that will work
>>> Here is an example of an article outline that you can use
for every article you write online.
Article Title: write down an idea of the title you would like
to write. It has to be a catchy title, and sometimes you don't
have the title until you have finished the entire article.
Subject: what do you want to write about in the first place.
What is the point that you are trying to get across.
This is your introduction, summary in one. Lead into the topic
with the first few sentences that will keep them reading.
Present your opinion or subject here and then reinforce it
throughout the article.
Give examples, and help to support your topic. People like to
see facts and/or real life solutions that have worked for you
that will work for them. Help and inform here. Remember to
emphasize your point. Anticipate any questions that people may
have when they read your article and answer them beforehand. A
true time saver is to have their questions already answered.
This is a summary of what you have focused on already. You want
to stand firm to what you're talking about, give some words of
advice if needed, and be helpful and reassuring. By now, you
should know the title of your article. Half of the time you
will notice that you started writing one article, and it ended
up into another article altogether. That is why I suggest
waiting until the end to come up with a title for your article.
When people look for articles online, they are looking for
solutions. Remember most people can find a lot of information
already through the newspapers, libraries, television, and
books. Your articles have to grab their attention and get them
to remember you in the long run.
