6. Give a brief background of problem or situation you will solve. One of my book coaching clients wrote a book, "The Cure for Multiple Sclerosis." She shares that over 2 million people worldwide with Multiple Sclerosis are diagnosed incurable, that doctors are pressured to use pharmaceuticals, and that health industry is not about getting people well, but about making money.
7. Share problems that result. In "The Cure for Multiple Sclerosis," problem is that most people rely on western medicine which does not have answers. Big money is not spent on alternative or complementary ways to prevent and cure chronic diseases, so people with problems get drugs that deplete immune system.
8. Give solution. Your book offers solutions to problems. So must your article. Show your readers how to get excellent health, how they can write a book, make more money, or have better relationships.
9. Show them where to get solution and how. The article, "How to Listen at Work," needs to suggest where to go or what to do next. You may name a quality book to read (maybe your book!). Mention a seminar or training, or recommend a coach. You may even mention a web site address or 800 number.
10. Place your article on as many high traffic Internet sites and Opt-in Ezines as you can. Just as feature articles in newspapers are seven times as powerful as advertising, so is your article.
