I am in fact kind of lazy and I hate to admit it, thanks to my article writing process though I seem to do ok. I am on the computer all the time but i spend a lot of time analyzing stats and markets and keywords. I sometimes think that the technology around me is one of my worst enemies.
One of the things that has made the most difference in my internet marketing success is the backlinks that I have gotten from article directories. I use the following article directories extensively:
I may have had a lot of success in the past with articles thanks to my article writing process but I have to say that I will go and write an article and then submit it and not do anything for a while. The real problem is scheduling time every day to execute the process and here is a new process that I have created and am taking advantage of this weekend
The most important thing that you can do to improve your article writing process is of course to write a lot. Write article titles with notes, write everyday at a certain time, start keeping notes. No matter what you do if you are always writing and keeping notes of things to write about then it will be really easy to improve your article writing process very quickly.
Article Writing Process
Writing article titles – An important part of the article writing process as this gets me started. Come on all we really need to write a lot of articles is the titles and then we will in fact have something to flesh out. To do this I just created a bunch of text files and then renamed them with a proposed title eg:writing articles that bring customers.txt. There are two things at work here. First is the title that I will use that is keyword rich (no research just what I would like to use) and secondly it gives me a focus for 400-500 words of content.
Writing bio boxes – This has always been a problem for me. I write articles and have a bio box but they are all over my computer in little text files so what I have done is added one text file and added all my bio box text including hyperlinks to the one file so no matter what I am writing about I have a bio box right at my fingertips. This keeps the flow going in my article writing process by stopping me from having to find the links to promote.
How else can you streamline your article writing process with bio box info? Well first Ezinearticles.com will allow you to add 3 personal bio box texts to select through so make sure to have these setup anyway. The other thing you can do to make bio boxes easier to write is to create a bunch of links in that file of mine that are <a href=”link”>keyword</a> just fill out a bunch of those with every one of your money pages and fit as needed when you submit an article.
Writing articles – I use the tried and true article writing process method of one or two intro paragraphs, 3 or so bullet points with expansion, and then a closing paragraph that will really pull it all together. This is all I need to get 400-500 words.
Most teachers will tell you that teaching should be a process of tell them what you want to teach, teach that info, and then tell them what you taught them. This is a tried and true method as the intro will setup your content and then the closing will ingrain the information to your readers. So try to use this process of
- 100 words – intro
- 400 words – content in numbered or bulleted list
- 100 words – Wrapping up the content in the points above
Pulling it all together for article sites – To capitalize on your content either on your own site or on other sites it is important to be able to rank for something. Far too many people just write a lot of stuff and post it with no idea how someone will find it (hint: Google brings most sites 80% of their visitors). Do a quick sweep through your article and make sure that you are 2% or so keyword rich and if you make sure you title and tags use that keyword as well.
Finally, if you can do your closing paragraph after your hook in your bio box. This will make your article seem like it ends after your links instead of with your links and your clickthroughs will be higher.
Article Writing Process Closing
Is this the same thing that is holding you up? You can see that my article writing process is all about efficiency so that when I get started writing I do not have to stop for bits of other stuff breaking my focus. We all know that if you break down the income that you make you can probably make a good income on just writing a bunch of articles like this very one. So far this article itself is 443 words. I bet you could do lots of these as well, am I right?
Follow this article writing process everyday and see if your production increases, I am confident that it will.
