Writing Articles > Essential Tools & Resources
Writing Articles Start with Your Keyword Research
OK. writing articles start with your market and "Keyword Research". This page focuses on writing articles, and the 'Article Writing' techniques, that will bring in the desired results.
You can go to "Affiliate Marketing Program", to get a very basic idea on how to do a 'Keyword research' and analyze the researched data.
I will however, cover keyword research in detail, on a separate page.
Writing Articles to Ensure Visitor Action and Conversion
What do you think would be the key points to ensure a good conversion for your articles?
Well, according to me, when writing articles, your articles should be able to convey to your reader the following:
---> Your unique voice
---> Authority and trust
---> Realistic and honest view
You will deliver all of the above when writing article. Each of them will be segregated into separate paragraphs.
But, you will also have an 'Introduction' and a 'Conclusion' to your article.
So all in all, your article will have five paragraphs, with a total word count of over 400 words. This will be just right for an ezine article.
You see, you need just about over 400 words, split into the five paragraphs.
How difficult is that?
OK. Let's see how to write each of the paragraphs in a proper way.
Writing Articles One Paragraph At A Time
The first will be your Introduction. Write your introduction in approximately 2 to 5 short sentences. Here, you will basically introduce your topic. Now here is a quick method to come up with your introductory paragraph.
Always remember your five W's, as in an audit. Who, What, When, Where, Why (and/or How). Try to answer these questions.
You see, how to structure your paragraph around the five W's. This is very important when writing articles. Your introduction is your first impression. So make this as attractive as possible.
Initially, it will be tough, but, as you practice, it will be just a piece of cake.
In two to five sentences, you will tell your story, with a unique voice to it. You see, with free 'Web traffic' sources, it’s often a 'Web 2.0' and “Social Media" situation. What this means to you is that, you will need to build up a peer to peer trust.
Word of mouth recommendations. Marketers’ recommending this website to the other marketers.
So let’s see an example.
Now, you have to remember that, you don’t know about this website yourself, and you will be upfront and honest in your reviews. This will for sure establish a connection with your reader.
This has exceeded 5 sentences, but, you see, how easy it is to come up with an upfront review that has your own voice.
And by the way, Armand Morin is the Guru of Internet marketing. He is offering a free news letter, titled 'Internet Marketing News letter', or "IMC' in short. Although, you are getting his newsletter for free, it's contents are equal to or better than $97/month stuff you get in the online market.
Now let's see how you can build your authority and trust, when writing articles. There may be cases where, you do not know how to pen the words of authority while writing articles. But, you have a 'done it, been there', kind of experience. It’s just that the words do not come easily, to put that into a good 'Web content'.
That is just an example, and don't think that I am tooting my horn.
But do you get my point? You see 'Writng articles' after all, can be fun. This will also increase your knowledge, while you are investing in a new skill.
Remember this. When writing articles, your honest feelings, even negative points about a product/service, are appreciated and come across as more realistic to your reader. So, don’t make it up, to look like a glowing review.
On the other hand, you will be more successful, to promote your products/services, or sell products/services as an affiliate, when you incorporate a slightly negative review, when writing articles.
Honesty is the best policy. Be upfront and honest, when writing articles, especially, if it's a product/service review.
Writing Articles That Concludes Well
The last paragraph of your article is your conclusion. Now that doesn't mean, that your article ends there. On the other hand, it's the beginning of your visitor's action, that will more likely end in a sale. The award for writing persuasive articles.
Ka-ching --- Do I hear the cash roll?
Wrap it up here. Reiterate why it’s important for them to get the coaching and training sooner rather than later.
By the way, although that was an example, it is a real one. The above statement is absolutely true in my case. I just let you in on my most held back secret tools, in the above example…
You see, writing articles, is a simplified process, if you follow the above guideline. I have written so many articles on different topics, using the above criteria. My articles are some times, the most viewed and downloaded, from the ezine articles directory.
You now finished your article writing in five paragraphs. So, writing articles this way, you can come up with over 500 words article every time. What is left for you to do now, is to simply add a hyperlink at the end of your article in your 'Author bio box' also known as 'Resource' box.
