How To Write A Make Money Article
by Jeff Schuman. Copyright 2004.
First of all keep in mind that you are writing for your audience not for yourself. Make your article simple and easy to follow. Stick to the point of your article. You can win a Noble Prize another time. For now just be informative and if possible be enjoyable.
I like to use the AIDA format when I am outlining my article.
Here are 4 easy steps to follow when writing your article.
1. Introduction....Attention! Here is what my article is about
This can be as short as one sentence. Your goal here is to tell your readers what they can expect in your article. Get their attention.
Keep the focus on the content you are writing about. Don't jump around and get off of the topic of your article.
This can be as long as you need it to be to cover all of the key points you are trying to convey to your audience.
Use bullet points to highlight key content.
Fill the body up with keywords that relate to the topic you are writing about. Search engines crave fresh content and keywords help draw attention to your article.
It can be a whole paragraph or it can be one short sentence. Your goal is to finish your article and let the reader know there is nothing else to be said.
If you are writing an article that is pursuading your reader to take further action then you want to do that in the conclusion. Give them the desire to take another step.
The Resource Box.
Can you explain what you do or what you sell in 5 lines of no more that 60 characters each. This is a great place to promote yourself, your website, your newsletter, an eBook etc.
The resource box is basically a classified ad that in a non-threatening way leads your reader to want to learn more.
If you want to make money at home writing articles is a great way to do it. It is also an inexpensive way to do it. In our next article we will talk about getting your article read and some of the best places to submit your article online.
