Getting into article marketing is often viewed as a pretty daunting task. If you've looked into it before, you probably already know the basics, i.e. writing and submitting articles to article directories.
And while that sounds easy enough to some, for others, the idea of writing articles is something that is very unappealing.
Whether you intend to carry out an article marketing campaign for backlinks or traffic, the one inescapable fact of the matter is that you’re going to need to be writing articles, and lots of them at that. Really, there’s no two ways around this, so you might as well get used to it now.
By writing more articles, your results will be vastly improved, as each article will bring yet more traffic, and yet more backlinks, to your website. Some marketers have been known to write hundreds of articles for article marketing – and that should give you an idea of what you’re getting into.
Needless to say, if you write slowly, at the rate of an article a day or something, you’re going to be stuck at this for quite some time. So there’s definitely a compelling reason as to why you should want to know the quickest approach to writing articles, and here’s what you should do:
1. Decide on a topic
To do this, head over to article directories, blogs, and other websites that deal with the niche that you’re in and get ideas. Choosing a topic this way is going to cut your work in half because you can then…
2. Extract facts from various sources
Remember: Don’t plagiarize. Instead, extract facts about your chosen topic from multiple sources. If you followed step 1, you should already have these sources handy, so this shouldn’t be too hard.
3. Write a great headline
Spend a little time thinking about your headline. Mull it over and try to figure out what would appeal to people and attract their attention. If you want, draft a few and then decide on one later on.
4. Clearly write about each fact that you extracted
Since you already have the facts, all you need to do now is use them, and clearly go over each one. Use a conversational tone if you can, and ‘talk’ to the reader. That way you’ll bridge the gap even better!
5. Call the reader to action
Finally, be sure that your call to action (i.e. resource box) is well written and really seamlessly flows from the body of the article before recommending a course of action to the reader. Be sure to give your readers a reason for this, and you’ll find that your results are that much better.
Simple isn’t it? This approach to article writing is really not complicated, and is something that anyone can use to their advantage. With it, you’ll find that you’re writing articles faster and more effectively than ever before.
And thus, churning out the sheer quantity of articles that you’ll need for your marketing will not be a problem at all!
