How to Write Quality Articles, Lots of Them, Without Sacrificing Your Reputation
Most online article writers are completely challenged by writing, and yet, they realize they must write more articles to stay on top of their article marketing endeavors. Luckily, over the years, I’ve created several methods to assist me in doing this, and I believe it is time for me to share those with the world.
Occasionally, online article authors email me and ask me my secrets to high-output of articles, thus, I’d like to share with you the types of responses I give. Here is how you can write a high-quantity of articles without sacrificing quality; (step-by-step)
First step: Create word files with only titles of articles you wish to write about.
Second step: Go through these “title only files” and write 4 sentences of the key points or things you wish to say.
Third step: Think on it for a while, and then come back and write the first introduction paragraph stating the problem, challenge, history, or concern of the topic, sometimes this takes two paragraphs, meanwhile you are at a 100 words. At that point you may just keep going all the way through the article until you finish, keep going as long as you feel like.
Forth step: Write a paragraph of each of the three or four points you have. You can use or re-work your sentences as sub headings, as this makes a nice looking article with a good use of white space.
Fifth step: Conclude it. With a paragraph and provide encouragement and a hook for more information or problem solving solutions, then they’ll read your byline and hopefully click in.
Now then, let me go into a little further explanation and detail;
Here is what I do now, I write the titles of potential articles sometimes 10, 20, 50, or more, then close out the files. Come back later and go through all of them writing 3-4 points, usually sentences. And I do the lead in paragraph too. Then I close each file and save the work.
Later I come back with voice software and read my first paragraph and that ditches any writer’s block I might have had and use the voice to continue where I left off, but sometimes I do not use voice, because I am not in a quiet environment or there are other people around.
Usually I finish the article at about around 350 words or so, but often there is more to say, so I just keep on going until I’ve had my say, made my point, or given the information I wish to depart.
Next, since I often use voice software, I must proof-read extremely carefully because it might use the wrong tense, or incorrect words, and it is so easy to read over your own mistakes. Which is a good thing because the key to quality is good proof reading and you cannot rely on spell-check alone.
If possible, I have someone else read it for proof reading marking mistakes in red. If not, I do it myself very carefully. After I’ve proof read 5-10 articles, I post them and do another set of completed articles.
This method of production has worked well for me. And although your brain will get very tired after 10 voice articles, you can take a break and then edit, as that uses a slightly different part of your brain. If you do more than 20-40 articles in a day, you are going to need to get out of the house or office, or get a really good night sleep to recharge. This is how you can do it too.
If you’d like me to answer your questions, then send them to me, and I will create new articles with your question as the title of the article, that is if it is a really good question. I hope this will help you become the best that you can be? This is article number 19,000 and they were all written by me.
