Five Suggestions For Writing Articles in Direct Sales

Article marketing is one of the most effective ways to market without a financial investment. One of the most common questions I hear is “what could I write about?"

I believe each of us has something of value to offer to others. I also believe that each of us has a different way of presenting information, meaning the reader might finally understand the concept based your presentation.

I'd like to share some of my favorite ways to find ideas for articles I can write about

1. I read message boards. I belong to about a dozen message boards. They are all either cooking related or direct sales related. These are the two areas I predominantly write about and so these are the two areas where I want to hear what others are saying and read the questions that others are asking. If someone asks a question and I know the answer, I will answer their question on the message board and then use that answer as the base for an article.

2. I read other articles. I subscribe to alerts from EzineArticles.com so that when new articles in the topics I've chosen are submitted I'm notified. I very often can write a new article based on the concept of another article I've read. I do want to be very clear here, I am in no way plagiarizing anybody. Instead, if I see someone is writing about finding new customers in direct sales, I'll take that base idea and then write my own article using some of my own ideas for finding customers. I'm simply looking for an idea when reading other articles.

3 I read newspaper articles. Almost every newspaper published has an online version of their paper. Since I'm writing about cooking and direct sales, I scan the business sections and food sections of the papers I am reading. Maybe a food writer has recently written an article on the health benefits of almonds. I'll take that idea and then write my own article offering recipes and suggestions for using almonds in cooking. Again, I am not plagiarizing but rather getting a base idea.

4 Google offers “Google alerts" on any subject you'd like to be notified about. Simply go to www.google.com/alerts and type in any keyword or key phrase you'd like to have an alert for. You can sign up for as many alerts as you'd like. You can make your search as broad or as narrow as you'd like. You can receive your alerts as often as you'd like. I personally get alerts on the two phrases “cooking ideas" and “cooking tips"

5 I subscribe to newsletters. I receive several newsletters that are cooking related and also direct sales related. I read the articles and often get ideas from these articles. Just like the newspapers and message boards, I see what others are talking about and read what questions folks have. I then take those ideas and questions and write my own article.

These are all ways you can find ideas to write articles about any topic you'd like to write about. Put the ideas into your words. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how often your words will help
