- Article Writing
Article writing has been the best way for me to build up my internet business. I market myself, my eBooks, and my other information products in many other ways, but writing articles is the way I continue to prosper online. You can build up your credibility and visibility by writing articles in your field of expertise. The more you write, the more you will know about your niche. You can also learn more by reading what other people have to say, and then writing another article to give your perspective and point of view. Writing an article every day is on my schedule. That way I can write and submit my article before moving on to other marketing and business activities throughout the day. If I have some extra time at the end of the day, I always write one more article. This method has served me well, and I now make a very good living online because so many people have read about what I do. You can do the same thing. You will want to include information in your article that will be helpful to the reader. Give them tips and share your experiences so they will be able to move forward in their own niche.
into the habit of writing and submitting one article every day will change how you are perceived online and within your niche. The writing becomes easier, smoother, and faster after you have done it every day for several weeks. Then you will look forward to sharing new ideas with readers from around the world. Begin to make a list of everything you can write articles about. I like to have my ideas ready in advance, so that I can just sit down and right whenever I am ready. I make a few notes and sometimes do a small amount of research on my topic, and then I just start writing. You can write articles with a list of tips, but I have moved away from that style of writing. Instead, I prefer to list each tip or piece of information in a separate, smaller paragraph. This looks much more professional, and holds the reader’s interest in a different way.
At the end of your article, write a short concluding paragraph that is not quite complete. This will encourage your readers to visit you site in order to learn more about what you were telling them throughout the article. This type of ending is known as the Zeigarnik Effect, and is a very powerful psychological method of leaving someone with an incomplete thought or idea.
