5 tips on writing better articles

The contents of this post are reproduced from an article that arrived in one of my emails not so long ago. Unfortunately, I have since deleted this email and do not know the original source. A quick Google search showed that this article is reproduced on many different websites. I personally found the content to be so precise that I would not even attempt to rewrite what the original author has written. So credits and a thumbs up to whoever first wrote this useful article.

1. Write about things that interest you or that you are an expert at. The articles will be more believable if you are coming at it from an angle of passion or expertise. You only have to hang out in article directories for a few minutes to tell the difference between a well-written article based on expertise or passion versus one based on keyword research. There are some very well-written articles in article directories today and there are some that are not worth the paper they were written on.

2. Keep your articles timely and based on what’s going on in the marketplace. Any niche has things that are topical and therefore will be more interesting to the reader. To become better at this you should constantly research for new article ideas. You should also keep a swipe file of ideas you can refer to quickly to come up with topical articles.

3. Spend an adequate amount of time researching your articles before you write them. If your articles are informative and provide useful information, people will be more likely to click on the URL in your resource box. You can tell the difference between an article that’s been thrown together versus one that is well researched. You will also find that the amount of time it takes to write an article drops when you spend a little bit of time researching before you start writing.

4. Write using words that are easy to understand. We’ve all read articles by people who are using big words to try and impress readers. Generally these words do not make any sense or don’t flow with the article. One rule of thumb is to write like you talk. If you do this, the article will be easier to understand and more appreciated by your audience.

5. Write numbered list articles so readers can scan them. Most people do not read an article word for word. They tend to skip to the highlights so you might as well give those to them. Numbered list articles make it easy for the reader to read what each paragraph is about and then read it in more depth if they want to.
