What do ?X-Men?, ?Jurassic Park?, ?Predator?, and ?Mission Impossible? all have in common? They are all trilogies. Trilogies, or groups of three are all the rage these days. From movie trilogies like ?Star Wars?, Indiana Jones, ?X-Men? and ?Matrix? to ?Jurassic Park?, ?Predator?, ?Jaws? and ?Mission Impossible? among a number of others, we've grown expectant of the ?Epic Saga? in three parts. Even Westerns, that on-again, off-again genre that audiences hate such a love-hate relationship with, have not been spared the trilogy format. Just ask Clint Eastwood.
There are some movies and book series which run longer. Harry Potter, James Bond, Superman and the infamous Hannibal Lector have all made multiple appearances. King Kong has climbed New York skyscrapers in multiple remakes of this classic. Let's not forget the ?Alien? series either. It did wonders for Sigourney Weaver. And just look at what Arnold started with ?Predator?. He wasn't in any of the sequels, either. I'm not even sure how many of Freddy Krueger's ?Nightmare on Elm Street? sequels there are. ?Halloween? is another series of sequels that just goes on and on. How many times has ?Rambo? crossed our path? ?Rocky? is another one that keeps coming back for beating after beating, on screen and at the box office. Remember the ?Pink Panthers? anyone?
Then you have a cascade of books and films now at two parts and poised for the hat trick. ?Legally Blond?, ?XXX?, ?Ice Age?, ?Shrek? are among those currently at this stage. Think there?ll be a trilogy for each? I wouldn't bet against it. Would you?
So what does all this mean for you? Just that you should think along the same lines and write your articles in doubles at the least. Writing them in triple or more parts would be even better. If an article draft is 750 to 900 words, you should break it into a double pack. Clean up and rework the opening and concluding paragraphs for each ?part? and Voila! Your one article has now become two web-content style pieces. With a draft of 1200 to 1400 word or so article draft, you can easily make three articles. You only need about 350 to 400 words or so to 'seed? a new article. I typically write in threes. You should too. Divide your article drafts to multiply your production and make more sales.
What about the titles? You can simply title your new pieces as part 1, part two and part three. Or you may want to come up with a new title for each piece. A combination of these might also be in order. But whichever route you choose to take, with minimal effort, you've now turned your basic research and one article draft into multiple articles. More articles mean more exposure. More exposure means more readers. More readers mean more potential markets reached. More reachable markets mean more sales. That all translates into more ?moolah? in your stash. So divide your article drafts to multiply your production to increase your writing income.
