Learn How To Write An Article In 5 Steps

Learning how to write an article is one of the most valuable skills you can learn when it comes to doing business on the internet. The value in learning this skill is important because of the simple fact that the search engines thrive on quality content.

If the thought of writing doesn’t sit well with you, don’t worry it didn’t with me either when I first started. However the more I got into to it the easier it became as with anything else. So here are 5 steps to learning how to write an article that you can use over and over again in your content production.

1) One of the first things to keep in mind is that your articles don’t have to be pulitzer prize winning pieces. A short but informative article around 350-500 words is more than enough.

2) Follow an outline. Keep this simple, just think about what your going to write about and present it in a logical way that flows from the title to the conclusion. Nothing fancy, you don’t have to use elegant words that require having a dictionary handy. The average reader reads at a 6th to 8th grade level. If you get to uppety with your words, you run the risk of alienating your readers.

3) Before publishing your article make sure to read it back to yourself out loud. I can’t tell you how many little mistakes I catch when I read my articles back to myself. The more grammatically correct your writing is the better your chances of establishing credibility with your audience.

4) A technique for writing articles that make for good reading and provide quality content is to write a list. Very similar to the article your reading now. Lists are easy to follow and good for skimmers who just don’t have the time to sit down and read a novel. You can do a “top 10”, “5tips”, “3 ways to” are a good way to generate some ideas for your next article.

5) Due to the fact that it’s easy to get distracted by the temptation to browse the internet, it may be best to research your topic collect a few key points for your article and sit down to write it on a piece of paper. This will allow you to focus and get the job done.

Article marketing is definitely a fundamental skill that will pay big dividends over and over again for years to come. For a detailed course that can teach you how to write an article and turn a profit from it, visit:
