Writing good articles, tps from an article directory owner.
Many people, including experienced authors and marketers dread the thought of having to write another article. There are some who just feel like it seems to be too much work and it all just goes to waste when no one reads their article anyway. To some people, reading articles seems like work too, especially if the article is boring and very bland. Well, articles are supposed to be read, that’s their purpose, to impart your knowledge, message and information. If it is not read by anyone, then it is a waste of time and effort. But all the same, articles have to be written to be read.
It’s just a matter of making them good. Making a good article doesn’t have to be strenuous and straining. There are just some points needed to be reminded of, and some guidelines to follow. Once you get the hang of it, writing articles should be fun, as well as beneficial for you and your site. Of course, the articles you write must be about a subject you know something about, that’s why if you own a site, you probably have some knowledge about the theme of your site.
When you write about it, you won’t have too hard a time because you already know what the subject is and what it’s about. It’s just a matter of making your articles creative, informative and interesting. To make sure that your articles get read and enjoyed, here are six really useful tips. These tips will make your articles readable, informative and interesting. 1) Use short paragraphs. When the paragraph are very long, the words get jumbled in the mind of the reader. Just looking at a long paragraph can get quite confusing and makes, and this makes it hard work to read it. The reader will just quickly disregard the paragraph and move on to much easier reading articles that are good to look at as well as read. Paragraphs can be a single sentence, sometimes even a single word! 2) Make use of numbers or bullets. As you are stressing each relevant point, numbers and bullets can quickly make the point easy to remember and digest.
As each point, tip, guide or method is started with a bullet or point, your readers will know that this is where the tips start. Format you bullets and numbers with indentations so that your article won’t look like a single block of boring square paragraphs. It pays to add a little bit of flair and originality to your articles shape. 3) Use Sub-headings to sub-divide your paragraphs in the page. Doing this will break each point into sections. It will also be easy for the reader to move on from one point to another; the transition will be smooth, easy and 'natural.'This way, you will never lose your readers attention as well as the point and direction of your article. 4) Provide a good attention-grabbing title or header. If your title can entice a person’s curiosity you’re already halfway there in getting a person to read your article. Use statements and questions that utilize keywords that people are looking for.
Provide titles or headers that describe your articles content, but should also be short and concise. Use titles like, “Tips on making her want you more”, or “How to make her swoon and blush” .You could also use titles that can command people, for example, “Make her yours in six easy Ways”. These types of titles reach out to a persons’ emotions and makes them interested. Once you have the readers emotional attention, you are guaranteed that person will read your article. 5) Keep them interested in your article from the very first word, to the last. From your opening paragraph, use real life situations that can be adopted by the reader. Use good descriptions and metaphors to drive home your point, just don’t over do it. Driving your examples with graphic metaphors and similes would make it easy for them to imagine what you are talking about. Making the experience pleasurable and enjoyable for them.
6) Utilize figures when necessary and not just ordinary and insipid statements. Using specific facts and figures can heighten your article because it makes it authoritative. But do not make it too formal, it should be light and easy in them and flow. Like a friendly teacher having a little chat with an eager student. 7)Don't use long, technical or unusual words. Many authors assume that their readers already know about the subject. These authors use technical words and jargon that are difficult for the reader to understand and follow. So try to keep it as non-technical as you can. After all, you want them to visit your website for a more in depth understanding of what you are writing about.
