While there are a great number of people who do not have the same attitude in article writing as others, there are still those who would rather walk over piping hot coals than do some article writing. What sets people apart from others towards article writing is that they are prepared and have some methods and procedures in place when writing articles.

One of the methods you can use to prepare yourself when writing an article is to create an outline first. Creating an outline for all your articles makes you prepared. You have an idea of what to do first and a plan for your succeeding steps. Being prepared makes the job easier and faster.

An outline can act as the design or blueprint for your article. This will guide you in creating the introduction, body and conclusion of your article. At this point, you can write down some of the ideas and sentences that you feel will look good in your article. This could be some of the focal points that could help make your article creative, interesting and appealing to a reader.

A carefully planned and fully prepared project can guarantee and ensure that article writing can virtually go without any hassles. Creating an outline for all your articles will get you ready and you can breeze through writing an article in no time at all. Here I will provide you with some tips and guidelines on how to create an outline for all of your articles.

Do a couple of brainstorming sessions where you jot down your ideas. Think of some ways that will attract the interest of your reader. Designate a time frame where write down all the ideas that you can use for your articles. By this time you should have done all your research. Review and reread your ideas and notes to gain sufficient familiarity with your topic so that writing them down later will be easy for you.

The next step is your sub topic and sub titles.You would to write a first sentence for your article, one that would immediately grab the attention of your reader. You would do the same for your sub topics as well. To be concise, you need to get all the facts that will support your point.

These are the framework or skeleton of your article. Now its time to add the flesh and the meat to your article. You will need to connect all your paragraphs and sub topics.

The conclusion will wrap up your points and drive in what you are saying in your article.

Your outline shall be perfected as each draft is written and this draft is meant for your eyes only so there’s no reason to feel embarrassed.

August 10, 2016

We’ve all heard it… “Content IS King” and for good reason, because it IS as far as the Internet is concerned.

And when it comes to web surfers, they come online for two reasons, One is to check their email and social media and reason number Two is to search the web for “Information”.

How do you think the Internet received the reputation as the “Information Super-Highway”? Because that’s what its primary purpose was before they decided to commercialize it to what it is today.

And… what do ‘Articles’ contain? The answer is quite simple… “Information”.

So, what does this have to do with you? Be the one who supplies it. It’s that simple.

Now, for the rest of this article I’m going to give you 10 POWERFUL reasons WHY you should and/or need to get started using ‘Articles’ as one of your online marketing strategies so you too can reap the benefits.

With that said, lets move on to reason #1.

Reason #1. Search Engines LOVE them.

It’s no secret that Search Engines LOVE content, so if you supply it on a regular basis you’re giving them a great reason to stop on by to take a look around your site. Once there, they’ll spider and index your website which is exactly what you want.

Reason #2. Website and Newsletter owners always need them.

I touched base on this earlier about why web surfers come online.

Website owners need fresh content to keep there visitors and/or subscribers coming back, where as newsletter publishers also need fresh content for there “email” newsletters that they publish and send to their subscriber base.

Remember the two reasons I discussed earlier about WHY web surfers come online. BINGO!

Reason #3. They generate Life Long residual Traffic.

Articles produce Life Long residual traffic because website owners, newsletter publishers and article directories archive them for there visitors to read and search through.

And since you have a ‘Resource Box’ located at the end of every article you produce with your website info and URL you’ll receive traffic.

Reason #4. Great way to get One-Way HIGH PR links.

This is probably one of the best reasons because when you offer your free information with ‘Reprint Rights’ and the website owner decides to archive your article within their article directory and if their website happens to have a High PR(popularity ranking) ranking, guess what?

You’ll be able to ‘Piggy Back’ off their PR giving your website a PR boost because at the end of every article you produce you have your ‘Resource Box’ with all your websites info and most important of all, your URL.

Reason #5. They’re VIRAL.

This is yet another great reason to start using articles as one of your online marketing strategies simple because your going to offer ‘Reprint Rights’ with all the articles you produce giving Website and Newsletter owners permission to publish them causing a VIRAL explosion and Traffic surge to your website.

Reason #6. You can syndicate them via RSS.

If you’re up to speed on the marketing technology called RSS(Real Simple Syndication) and you write ‘Articles’ on a regular basis you can set-up an RSS feed that web surfers and/or website owners can ‘Opt-In’ to and syndicate your ‘Articles’ via RSS to them, plus, you can also submit your RSS feed(s) to RSS search engines and directories.

Depending on how many ‘Opt-In’ you get, this is yet another great reason to get started with ‘Articles’ and another way to generate LOTS of Free targeted traffic.

Reason #7. Bloggers with BLOGS need “Information” to.

Bloggers with BLOGS or Web-Logs need information to.

If you provide quality information related to a specific Blog, that blog owner just might post your article on his/her blog for their audiences/readership to read. Thereby giving you again more FREE exposure for your business.

It gets better. Blogs also use RSS (Real Simple Syndication) to syndicate there content to various search engines, RSS search engines and directories giving you again more FREE exposure through their feed.

Reason #8. Info-Product developers need it to.

Ever receive a free ebook of some sort in your Inbox with related articles inside it from other authors?

When you offer your articles with ‘Reprint Rights’ and someone decides to include your article in their ebook for a Viral marketing campaign they’re working on, guess what?

More FREE targeted traffic for YOU as that particular ebook circulates across the Internet.

Reason #9. Post them to related Forums and Newsgroups.

Remember, the Internet is all about numbers and Forums and Newsgroups contain numbers too and are yet another avenue for you to gain some extra exposure for FREE for your online business through your articles.

Just make sure you read their ‘Terms’ before you start posting because you don’t want to receive any ‘Flames’ in your Inbox.(They can be Nasty.)

Reason #10. You gain INSTANT credibility as an Expert.

The best way to gain the trust of your potential customers online is to supply them with quality “Information”.

By doing this you’re stepping up and telling them that you know what you’re talking about within the niche you’re in, giving them a reason to look into what you have to offer by following the link you provided within your ‘Resource Box’ at the end of your article.

WoW! Are those 10 POWERFUL reasons to get started with ‘Articles’ or what?
