There are probably a hundred and one reasons why you would be interested in article writing. Perhaps you have your own website and you want to send out articles through an article distribution service to help promote it. Or maybe you would like to offer your article writing service. Either way the tips I will be presenting here should help you. However, let us clarify one very important thing. And that is you should always write with your human readers in mind and not the search spiders sent out by the search engines. This is because you will be creating nothing but crap articles if you just want a whole text that is optimized for the search engines and not for people readers. And why should you focus more on writing for people instead of the search engines? Simple, because when you write with the search engines in mind you tend to create a garbage article. Garbage in the sense that since you need to do search engine optimization on it, your article end up heavily laden with keywords, which is not a good thing. This is because it is usually a lot harder to understand since when you intentionally place keywords there, it becomes less natural to read.
By any chance are you cur
rently going through an SEO course? I know that it is not that easy to understand everything all at once, but if you can find out that the course has a chapter about article marketing, then go straight to that page or video so that you can learn more about it. This is because it would greatly help you if you know how to approach this article marketing business or gig so that you will be more efficient and effective even if you are just getting started with it. This other tip that I will be giving you is based on common sense. And you would be surprised that many article writers today are neglecting it. You should always do a grammar and spelling check with your article. Even the word processors have a spell checking feature, so make good use of that. The reason behind this is that there are a lot of article writers out there who are being paid very low for writing an article. And they think that since they are not getting a good rate, that they should just write and do not check their articles for any errors. Of course that is a bad practice.
So there you go. The article writing tips I have presented here should be more than enough to get you started on the right track with your writing business. These are essential especially if you are going to put up your own article submission services.
