Article writing has proven to be in the past and continues to be an excellent technique for driving targeted traffic on a regular basis to your home business website by creating back links from other websites online. As your editorials are distributed throughout the Internet on a daily basis they become available through many different sources for reading and for establishing links back to your home page for many years to come. The problem is as you continue to produce a different work every day for an extended period of time you become the victim of new idea drought or, in other words, you’re now lacking inspiration for new topics to write about. Along with this mental roadblock comes the difficulty of having to begin the time consuming task of starting from scratch each and every day with a new article which can also become frustrating. One solution to this dilemma is to rewrite your past efforts in different formats or styles so you don’t have the added stress and strain of coming up with a new brain wave each day and you don’t have to start from the beginning with your idea. This can turn into a tremendous time saver for you and your home business while at the same time creating original content for your website as well as for the search engines that are tracking your site and feeding you traffic.
There are several ways you can reformat the same work so it appears as a unique effort on your behalf to the article directories and search engines online. First of all, you can change the style of your original piece to that of a step-by-step how to commentary on how to solve a particular problem or how to perform a particular act. This type of article is one of the
most popular online in terms of both readership and search engine response. Next, you can take your new critique and restyle it to take on the form of a list such as, for example: “A top ten list of mistakes to avoid when Internet marketing” or “5 ways to reformat an old article.” Lists are also a very popular format for editorials on the web and are a very convenient way to restyle a previous work. The question and answer format is another technique you can employ to change the look and feel of an original article. When using this style you simply pose a different question related to your topic for each of your paragraphs while answering the query right after you ask it. This can give your piece the appearance of a frequently asked question section of a website for example except they’re all related to the same topic. Multimedia formatting is another excellent tactic to use to increase your website content. For example you can take your written editorial and turn it into a video with one of the many video conversion software packages available on the web today. You can also present an audio file of your work or present it as a power point presentation in a slide format. By presenting your articles in a multimedia format you will undoubtedly increase your traffic tremendously because of the popularity of these media online today as well as because of the many other distribution channels you will open up for yourself such as the many video sharing websites available on the Internet which will post your work for you.
So as you can see you can take some or all of your past articles and re-create them in a format which will make them innovative and unique while also saving you time and creating new content and at the same time generating more traffic for your home business home page.
