5 Tips to Article Writing for Making Money Online
In all the training on the web for flogging your niche, article writing is the number 1 suggested method. This is a simple (yes simple) process once you get the hang of it. In the following I'll discuss 5 simple tips to help make money online.
Article writing as mentioned is the number one way to promote your niche (product) and can be intimidating if you're not a writer by nature. Think of it as writing a letter. Keep the process simple, clean, and write as you would a family member just a little more informative. Let's go through five simple tips.
Know Your Niche and Your Audience
Do your home work and know your niche so you're comfortable about talking about it. Once you are interment with your niche you will have a better understanding of who your audience will be. Who are you writing to, who do you want to read your article? Write specifically to that target group be specific in your wording.
Do not Sell in Your Article
Now that you know your audience you do not want to shove your niche down their throats. The key to a money making article is to grab your readers attention. Engage and encourage the reader to make them want to read more. Be informative, offer them some advice, give something free away, all to keep their attention.
Letter Writing-Write from the Heart
I find it easier to write from the heart, be honest and let the words come naturally. Write like you talk. It will go a long way to keep the reader's attention than if you sound like a robotic fax machine.
Another tool to make this work is voice recognition program (should be on your computer) and write your article like talking to a friend.
Watch Your Body Size
No not you personally, the number of words in your article. Without you get into syndication writing most article submission sites require 300-600 words. Write your article in word pad (similar program) keep an eye on your word count and aim for the middle. I like to stay around five hundred words.
Just a reminder write in word pad but you'll have to copy to note pad. Submission boxes on article web sites get along better with note pad. You will need to do a little copy and paste steps.
Submission sites will ask for a tile and summary. Summary paragraphs should be 3-4 sentences using keywords to grab the reader's attention. Titles should be catchy and key word specific as well.
This is key to using articles to online money making.
Keywords words are specific to your niche like making money online, online money making, how to make money online etc.
Where do you find these keywords? You must do research. Say your niche is golf clubs. You can go to Google AdWords and search. It will give you a list of recent searches specific to that niche. From these you can build a keyword list. There are keyword specific websites as well.
So relax and have fun with it and most important be yourself. If you still having problems go to family and friends and outsource your writing most of the big guys do not write their own articles it's all out sourced.
