In our hectic, word-based society, it's good to know how to use words good. For instance, as a marketer onrepparttar internet, it might be good if you could use words good.

Because you might want to write an article with words, so here are some rules about it:

1. Parts of Speech Add Zest!

Parts of speech include things like nouns, pronouns, verbs, and proverbs. They can really spice up your articles, so sprinkle them throughout your articles.

2. Don't Forgetrepparttar 129792 Headline!

Withoutrepparttar 129793 headline, your article will just look like a big lump of words. Or like a bunch of smaller lumps if you use paragraphs. Try to choose a headline that tellsrepparttar 129794 reader something aboutrepparttar 129795 article, like what it's about.

3. Know Something About Your Subject!

If you are not very smart aboutrepparttar 129796 subject of your article, ask someone to read it who is or else it could be really bad.

4. Sentence Length!

Readers get distracted by different sentence lengths. It's not important how long your sentences are as long as they are allrepparttar 129797 same. When you are done writing an article, go back and take some words out ofrepparttar 129798 long sentences and put them inrepparttar 129799 short ones. This will make your readers more absorptive.

5. Include Some Knowledge!

Designing A Successful Writing Career While Standing Behind the 8 Ball

Written by Susan James

Several years ago, I received a call from a friend of mine in a city about 2 hours away. She and another had just started an new company in medical consulting and needed someone to come and do about 3 days of data entry. She asked me, know- ing I was in between careers, and familiar with Medical Terms and Technology, would I come and spend 3 days and dorepparttar computer work.

My first reaction was, "No", because I did not know anything about a computer, and or data entry stuff. I had used a lap top inrepparttar 129791 previous work I was in, but it was not "data entry" stuff. So I said, "I'd think about it."

My friend then had her teenage daughter call me, because she really liked me and so she sweet talked me into going.

I went forrepparttar 129792 3 days, and what came from that wasrepparttar 129793 begin- ning of what is now my livelihood, which I run completely online.

As I was getting familiar with their business over those 3 days, and since I have a knack for promotion, I sawrepparttar 129794 potential they were missing. So I said, here is where you are, and here is where I can help you go, if you want to go . They said yes, and I becamerepparttar 129795 VP of Marketing.

Along withrepparttar 129796 growth came new computers, andrepparttar 129797 Internet, and me learning some new things & expanding my knowledge of howrepparttar 129798 Internet worked.

Up until that time, I had taken up residence in that distance city, but ultimately wanted to return home. I had done all I could do for them as they soon began some partnership squabbles, and it came time for me to move on, as I'm not interested in that energy.

They asked me to stay. I said, "I'd stay if they would open up a satellite office in my city, and I would do my part from there."

That's when things really began to happen for me online.

During that time, more partnership squabbles, they then began to lose money because they would not agree and they were always fighting and not workingrepparttar 129799 business in a productive way.

Then they got behind in payments to me. And long story short atrepparttar 129800 end of it all, I keptrepparttar 129801 computer & other office materials to compensate a small percentage of arrears in payment to me.

I had begun playing on some Internet forums. I got to be known as someone who knew her stuff. I then decided to put out 2 of my own free newsletters, when I still was not sure what I was doing or how to do it. At this point I had not thought of writing a book, although I did have a handbook that I began promoting on line in my newsletters.

Folks wanted my newsletters, which was such a grand feeling!
