"How To Ensure Your Article Is NOT Published"

* Over-indulge On Your Resource Box

It's generally accepted that your resource box, or "Aboutrepparttar author" by-line should be no more than 6 lines in length. Many publishers will object to anything longer, and unless your article is particularly exceptional, they'll bin it.

* Don't Use The Standard Format

Most ezine editors expect your article to be in this format:

Plain text, hard wrapped at 60-65 characters per line.

It'srepparttar 129596 only way to guaranteerepparttar 129597 piece appears as intended. Anything else creates extra work forrepparttar 129598 editor, either reformatting, deleting HTML code, or fixing incorrectly printing characters. To save time, such articles are passed over.

* Send Your Article As An Attachment.

Attachments require opening, something that may be put off and forgotten about. Worse still,repparttar 129599 legitimate fear of virus infection means many people delete them on sight. Paste your article intorepparttar 129600 body ofrepparttar 129601 email, so editors can scan through it immediately.

* Send Multiple Copies

It's tiresome to have to delete 2 or 3 copies of your article each time you make a submission. And it tellsrepparttar 129602 recipient you don't value their time. A source of annoyance, your article will lose points in comparison to other articles of equal merit: The subconscious mind is a powerful thing!

Check your submission list for duplicate domains. Those from free email accounts are usually obvious, but if you're unsure, check. It takes less than a minute to paste a domain name into a browser and loadrepparttar 129603 site. How much money would you make if your article was published? Worth a minute?

* Say How Wonderful Your Article Is

All too often I receive article submissions that start something like this:

"Hi! Here's a great new article for your ezine that your subscribers will love!"

Few ezine editors will appreciate YOU telling them your work is great. Or that THEIR subscribers will love it, especially when it's obvious you don't even knowrepparttar 129604 editor's name, norrepparttar 129605 title of their ezine. This tactic might work on a new publisher, but will lead many ofrepparttar 129606 more seasoned to ignore you.


Most ofrepparttar 129607 articles an editor receives are passed over for one reason or another. The secret is to stackrepparttar 129608 odds in YOUR favor. Give editors what they want and you WILL be rewarded!
