To help you write your next article, I am going to go through my article writing process. The main purpose for article writing is to drive as much traffic as possible to the site. When a visitor lands on my site, I want them to read the page content and sign up to the list.
When someone reads an article they should feel that the content was very interesting. They should feel they derived a lot of useful information. It is also important that they want more.
So if we were in the weight loss niche, one of the first things that needs to be done is to write a list of topics that people wanting to lose weight would want to know about reducing weight.
Here is an example:
– What foods will enable you to lose weight?
– What foods should be avoided completely?
– What types of food should you eat in social settings?
– What foods should you eat for snacking?
– What should you go if you go off the program?
One of the things to notice about the above is that they are all topics related to weight loss in general and food in particular.
Let’s create another list of topics focused on another sub topic of weight loss.
– How often should you exercise to lose weight?
– Do you really need to warm up before starting?
– What types of exercise will work best for weight loss?
– What are the best exercises to flatten stomach?
By writing this list of sub topics in weight loss you will not run of of ideas for writing.
Next, it time to just take one of the topics and just write a 400 word article specifically on that single topic.
Break your article into three, the introduction, the body and the conclusion. The introduction can consist of 3 to 5 sentences. The conclusion, maybe 2 to 3 and the body of the article, 4 to 5 paragraphs which discuss specific ideas in detail. Remember to insert the main keyword in several places of the article. An insertion at the beginning, in the main body and at the end of the article will suffice. These insertions should not leave the content clumsy or difficult to read and understand. If inserting keywords are difficult, then remove them.
At the end of the article you need to insert your call to action and your bio. A sentence or two about your experience or qualification would not do any harm here either.
