3. Write 3 - 5 Major Points
The key to making your writing easy is dividing up content. Through creating these main points you can also establish a flow to article. Using a step by step system will also help you stay organized in your mind.
4. Decide on number of words, probably around 300 - 500 for ezine articles
Most ezines publish shorter articles than you what you see in magazines. The best number to plan for is to create articles that are around 300 - 500 words in length. Although some ezines may ask for a little bit longer articles.
5. Divide up number of words and create each section invdidually
If you have 5 points, each one only gets 100 words. Once you add on a short introduction and a short conclusion, then you are at about 80 words per section. If you have 3 points, then each section will have around 150 words plus an introduction and conclusion. It is easier to get started when you think of it like this. You don't have to write 500 words. You need to write 150 words.
6. Create Your Resource Box
Give your contact info such as your name, email address, and web site. Then, give one or two benefit phrases, headlines you could say, along with web site links. You will receive your absolute best results if benefit phrases coincide with article you have just written.
7. Edit it
Take a step back after you have written and prepared your article. Sleep on it. Come back to your article next day and edit it. Re-phrase sections that you can make better. Do a spell check. It is amazing what a short rest will do for creative process.
8. Email it to ezine publishers with a short covering letter.
Find a large section of ezine publishers with their name and contact emails. Send it to them with a short personalized cover paragraph at top. Personalization is a major key since most ezine publishers receive hundreds of these emails every day. You need to make your emails stand out from crowd.
