It’s not a revelation that writing articles can bring considerable amounts of traffic to your website thus giving you more profits.
Today, the Internet has been flooded with articles to capture instant traffic for website owners. Millions of articles are written and published everyday.
The competition has become a fierce battle, and it’s getting tougher everyday to steer a great deal of traffic to your site.
With that being said, reason dictates that you have to do something to stand out from this crowded field and make sure that your articles are getting read by potential customers one step ahead from your competitors.
Here are seven surefire tips that will highlight your article:
1) Eye-Catching Headline
No matter how good your article is, if people do not see an ‘invite-to-read headline, they won’t even bother to glance on the body of your article.
Here are some tips on writing an ‘invite-to-read’ headline:
> Write your headline based on something that derives from personal experience. Personal experience will always arouse others’ curiosity
For example: “How I Made $ 17,917.00 In 3 Days Using Options”
> Use exact numbers in your headline:
$ 17,917 is more real than $17,000 because it is exact, and creates a picture in the reader’s mind. Ideal mental picture, one where they can see themselves in your favorable condition. In this case, readers can see themselves making that $ 17,917.
2) Simplify Your Words
Write your sentences with words that are easy to understand. For example, use attractive rather than ornamental.
If there’s certain specialized terms from your field, explain the meaning for your readers. For example, 7 PR. While this term is common for someone in the trade of Internet Marketing basics, it may be new lingo for an accountant.
Getting your articles read means you save your readers their time and making the article much easier for them to read the messages. Easy-to-read always works.
Another example: night-blooming cereus into flowering cactus. This will make a whole world change for you.
Imagine coming across two articles with headlines “7 Rules Upkeep of Night-Blooming Cereus” and “7 Rules Upkeep of Flowering Cactus.” Which one you’d rather read?
Many people have night-blooming cereus but don’t know it.
Though I don’t have one but I know a Flowering Cactus.
3) Vary Your Sentence Lengths
Make your article interesting by varying sentence lengths.
And remember, reading a computer screen makes your eyes tired faster. So shorter sentences help on that account also. Beside, it’s easier to read and devour through short sentence rather than over-crowded sentence. You can consider this article as an example.
4) Inject Your Personality Into Your Article
Write something about yourself.
How is your experience related with your article? Do you love something that related with your stuff? Or you can slip some jokes in the body of your article. This way you’ll appear more human rather than unknown behind the screen which eventually will lead to create relationship with your targeted customers.
5) Use Bullet Points
Why? For one reason only: they work.
Example: What you have to before opening any business?
> research the market
> survey prospective customers
> determine your budget
> write proposal for bank’s loan
You can express your information concisely and visibly!
6) Use Conversational Words Often
Try to use as many of contractions we use in everyday conversation as possible.
You can write “you’re” rather than “you are,” which will break the barriers between you and your readers.
