All experts finally agreed on something. Writing articles about your eBook can be one of most successful ways of eMarketing.
However, one of biggest problems on online is learning how to write a great article. You should not just type any old thing and call it an article.
First, you must put your passion, your personality into article. In addition here are some steps to follow to explode your eBook sales using free articles.
Step 1: Generate an article idea that everyone will want to read about. Review your eBook and look for benefits that your eBook provides to readers. Make a list of these benefits.
Now, take one benefit at a time and create an article. This will assure you of generating an article idea that people want to read about.
Step 2: Write a simple outline. Once you have your first benefit idea selected. Take another sheet of paper and write a simple outline for that idea. This will give you beginning content for your article. Later we will "fill in blanks" of this simple outline to create article itself.
Step 3: Choose a killer title that will draw attention. This is one of most important aspects of your article. Without a killer title, your article will be passed over for another.
Now what do I mean killer title? What I mean is a title that has a benefit stated in it and draws peoples attention.
Answer these three questions to help you write that killer title.
1.Does title draw a reader to take a look?
2.Does title promise to solve a need for reader?
3.Does title offer specific information?
Another way to start writing killer titles is to write at least 20 to 100 titles for each article to start. Then review other people's article titles. Then review your list and select your best killer title. I will tell you from my own experience that more titles I write for an article, better my title becomes. I have never used any of first few titles when doing above exercise.
Grab your readers with an attention-grabbing opening sentence. You can use either a statement or a question here. The idea here is to not only grab readers' attention. It's also to keep it.
The best way I have learned to write an attention-grabbing opening sentence is to go online to an article directory and read opening sentences to articles with a similar topic. I then discover which opening sentences are attention-grabbing and which are not.
Once I've done this I find it really easy to get my attention-grabbing sentence out of way.
Step 5: State primary purpose of article by introducing a problem. By looking at your main benefit again you can turn it around into a problem. What is it like without benefit? Here it is best to use a statement rather than a question.
If you are having trouble with this step simply write out an answer to this statement: "One of biggest problems..." Use this to jar your idea centers in your mind. You can also begin your primary purpose statement this way. Look at beginning of this article for an example.
Step 6: Take out sheet of paper that has your outline on it. Now, write two to four sentences for each part of your outline. Imagine for a moment that a 7 year old has asked you about your article. How would you explain it to that child? Great! Now use that in your article.
Most ezine publishers and owners like articles between 400 to 500 words. They also want it formatted to between 60 and 65 characters per line, including spaces.
