Submitting articles to top websites and ezines two or more times a week can yield 15 or more subscribers to your own ezine each time. Read by thousands, even hundreds of thousands, your articles also bring people to your Web site to buy your products.

Knowing these benefits, you want to create and submit as many articles as you can. At times, you haverepparttar articles complete, but don't have anyone handy to edit them. While it's best to get at least two other edits from business associates, you can edit your articles yourself with a little help.

Use this checklist to edit your own work

1. Start your introduction with a question or startling fact. You must hook your readers with something that reaches their emotions.

2. Make your introduction only a few sentences. Your readers want to get torepparttar 124282 heart of your article fast. They want easy-to- read quick tips. Long stories can bring a yawn to your reader.

3. Make all of your sentences short. Since standard sentence length is 15-17 words, make most of your sentences under that number. Complex sentences and multiple phrases makerepparttar 124283 reading tougher. Make it easy for your readers to getrepparttar 124284 point fast..

4. Avoid dull, slow passive sentences. Start them with a subject, then follow with a verb to avoid passive construction. The coach marketed her business and books through submitting articles online is an active sentence. The coach's books were marketed online through submitting articles is passive. Drop linking verbs such as "is," "was," "seemed," or "had." Replace them with power, active verbs. Instead of "She is beautiful," you could say "Her beauty compels you to stare at her."

5. Aim for compelling, clear copy. Write forrepparttar 124285 8-10th grade reader. Always think "What's in it for them?"

6. Use specific nouns and names. General references don't engage your readers' emotions. Let them seerepparttar 124286 size, color, shape. Rather than say, "Write your book fast to make lifelong income," say "Write and finish your book fast so you can take that long vacation to a Caribbean island such as Tobago." Money isn't a specific pull, but a vacation is.
