You'll find many differing opinions on how to write a quality article in the fastest way possible. You'll even find many arguments about what the length of an article should be. A quality article for the web is usually around 300-500 words. Generally, if they get longer than that, readership drops because the article is too long.
If you're struggling with writing articles or want to write your first article quickly, here's how to do it:
1. Do Your Research First
It's important to research the content of your article first before you start writing it. Here are some great places to do your research: Google, books, Wikipedia, forums and online articles (like this one!).
2. Write Your Introduction
Your introduction is basically your first paragraph where you sort of set the scene. Explain what your article is going to be about in a few short sentences and introduce your readers to the topic at hand.
3. Write Your Body Copy
The body copy of your article is the main component of it. There are two ways to organize your body copy. You can write it in the form of a few more paragraphs or write it in point form like what I'm doing in this article. Your research will come in handy here as this is where readers will get the main content that they are looking for.
4. Conclude Your Article
The conclusion is pretty easy to write: all you have to do is summarize what you have just said. It's also important to call your readers to action and get them to act on the information that they have just gleaned from your article. Many article writers don't do this. But if you do, you'll be genuinely ‘spurring’ your readers to take action on the information in your article.
So don't just read this article and forget about it. Go and write your first article now, get it submitted, and have it driving serious traffic to your website and boosting your visibility by a few notches.
