You, too, can become a recognized expert in your specialized field. How? By writing articles that get published on internet! Millions of people are gobbling up internet articles right now. I'm one of them.
Other people's articles interest me for two major reasons. 1. I'm a copywriter, so I use them as an information resource to write my own articles. 2. I market my writing services on internet, so I'm always seeking out exciting new business relationships. Articles speak volumes about an author's intelligence and integrity. If I like what you write, I may do business with you as well as pass your good name along to others who can use what you offer.
Some articles meet my criteria for being "expert-level," and others don't. Trust me, I'm not only one out there who's judging. Position your articles at top of your category and increase your credibility a thousandfold! Read on for some helpful article-writing tips.
1. Use active voice. Move your audience to action with action words. This means eliminating forms of verb "to be" in all their wishy-washiness. Is, am, are, was, were: these sad excuses for verbs will weaken your message and put your audience right to sleep. Replace them wherever possible with action verbs, and make your message pop!
2. Direct reader. Lately I've come across articles where author tells reader what they 'could' do. What a lame way to offer advice! Which of these sentences motivates you: "You could start your own affiliate program" or "Start your own affiliate program"? People want to be told what to do; not what they can, could, should or might do. Take a firm stand, and give your reader a direction to go in!
3. Be specific. Want to know quickest way to lose your reader? Give them a broad topic and then don't follow it with any details. I speak on behalf of all information-seekers when I say this: if you have valuable insights to share, then please take care to explain them fully. You don't have to go on for paragraphs. Just a few gems of wisdom are greatly appreciated, and will establish you as someone who really knows his stuff. If you're hazy on how to do this, always ask yourself who, what, when, where, how and why of topic at hand.
