When I first started to create articles, I didn't know what I was doing. I would just put pen to paper and write the best way that I could.
But over the past 18 months or so, I have developed my article writing skill to such a point that now most of my articles drive massive traffic.
Most of my article titles are very enticing and compelling. If you are interested in the particular niche that I am involved in, then my article titles will entice you. And then when you click to read my articles, I try to give away as much informative data as I can. It is important for me that my articles are very educational, and I want you to learn something as a result of reading them.
You, too, can produce great articles by learning and by doing. What I would suggest you do immediately is to sit down and create your first article. There are several things you need to take into consideration when you first draft your article, and when you carry out the things mentioned below, you will begin to create great articles that will generate a lot of traffic.
So how do you create great articles? What is the best way to create articles?
1 - If you are new to article writing, you want to first learn how to create titles that are compelling. You must entice your reader with a great article title. The title is your one and only chance to convince a reader that it is worth their while reading the complete article. If the reader believes that they are going to learn something new or of value to them, then they will click the title of your article and read your copy. A title that arouses curiosity is just what you need.
2 - To get your articles read, it is important that you are giving away free information. Write your articles as if you were sitting and preparing an e-book for which you expect to be well paid. This e-book should contain valuable information, fresh ideas, and it should take the reader to the next step in an effort to achieve their goals. It is very important that you avoid your article appearing as filler copy. If you articles feels like filler copy your reader will assume that all your work is written in this fashion, and they will not want to read any more of your articles. Your article is an opportunity to give your reader a sample of your paid-for information.
In spite of the above, your article is not an opportunity to sell. Do not create your best sales pitch. Your article should be full of fresh and valuable information. When the reader clicks your link found at the bottom of the article, they can then decide if they would like to further read your sales pitches, but the main purpose of your article is to develop a relationship with your reader that is long and profitable.
3 - It is very important that you develop an easy style of writing. Your style of writing should be comfortable and relaxed. Write as if you are writing to your favorite brother or sister and you wish to impart some valuable gossip to them. It's in a relaxed and chatty fashion. This will help your reader to feel comfortable and want to read more of your copy. This, in turn, will encourage them to click on to your website to find out what other valuable products and services you have available.
