Article marketing requires that you write great quality articles. Here are my top 7 tips for writing more great quality articles.
Tip 1 - Write often - Simply stated, to write more often you have to write more often. No, I'm not trying to slap some Zen-like statement on you. When you write often you stay in the flow of writing. You also avoid having to get started again. It's been said that writing isn't hard, it is sitting down to write that is hard.
Tip 2 - Use outlines - Many times I will have the outline, or the skeleton as I like to call it, of an article in my head for a few days. I write down the skeleton and save it as a draft. Then I come back and simply put meat on the skeleton.
Tip 3 - Use templates - Use mine, use someone else's, create your own. A template provides you with a structure in which to place your content.
Tip 4 - Capture your ideas - When your article ideas come, you must have a quick and easy way to capture them. Write them down, speak into a recorder, something. Do not depend on remembering later.
Tip 5 - Article Eyes - When you write often, you begin to see your world through “article eyes. " You know you are doing this when you begin to see article ideas everywhere.
Tip 6 - Find Your Time - Most writers have a best favorite time to write. Mine is in the morning, it's 8 am as I finish this article. In general you are most productive during this time.
Tip 7 - Write with Your Heart, Edit with Your Head - Write your first draft from the heart. Do a brain dump and a heart dump. Then go back and edit with your head.
Bonus Tip - Write in the article body field of your Article Directory. Every time you skip the copy and paste step you have more time to write more articles.
