12 Tips for Writing Articles on the InternetWritten by David McKenzie
I have compiled a list of 12 tips I think should be helpful when you are writing articles on internet.
1. Use lots of white space. People like to read in 'chunks' of information so have lots of space in your background.
2. Use short paragraphs. Following on from tip 1 keep it short and let your visitor read little pieces of information at a time. 3. Use occasional exclamation mark (!) to get your readers attention. But please do not over use this as many people now appear to be doing. 4. Ask a question so that your visitor will read on to find answer. This keeps readers attention focussed. 5. Put a lot of thought and effort into your heading. If heading does not get visitors attention straight away then they will just move on and not even read your article. Try 'The 7 Secrets to Successfully breeding Cane Toads' rather than 'How to breed cane toads'.
6. Use bullets to quickly outline a number of points that may be important in your article. Readers can scan through these. 7. Use numbers if this is appropriate for writing an article. For example way I am writing this article. 8. Outline benefits to your reader. They want to know what they can get out of reading article so portray benefits of what you are writing about. 9. Do not waffle. This is never more important than on internet. People get bored quickly and there are a million other articles they could be reading instead of yours. Get to point quickly - in very 1ST line!

Writing your own articles can often be most powerful marketing weapon you use. Believe it or not, your visitors actually want to read what you have to say at your site, not what other people have to say. They are looking for independent content that perhaps supports or refutes something they read on another site. Besides, they may have already read all articles written by other people you feature at your site elsewhere on internet. While it is perfectly reasonable and beneficial to feature “other peoples articles” at your site, you should also feature your own. Here are 4 reasons why you should write some of your own articles: 1. It is unique content that distinguishes you from about 90% of all other affiliates. That’s percentage of affiliates not writing articles! 2. People need content. For their web site or for their newsletter people are always in constant need for new, fresh content. This means articles that you write can be featured on
