Class Is In Session!
It’s that time of the year again. School is back in session and discovery is in the air! Let’s get right into today’s subject and lesson plan with Professor Goudriter (pronounced goodwriter).
Today, you’ll discover some tips that will help you write quality, unique, and engaging articles, which will go a long way in determining your results.
Professor Goudriter’s Lesson Plan
First Lesson: Use All Of Your Resources To Come Up With Original Article Ideas
Here’s a short list of some places you can look for original article ideas:
- Websites Related to Your Niche
- Your Blog
- EzineArticles Blog
- Newspapers and Magazines
- Social Media Websites
Research and awareness are 2 necessities to coming up with original article ideas.
Second Lesson: Narrow Your Focus
Instead of covering your topic in a broad sense, reduce your subject to a single word and brainstorm around that word. For example, if your niche is golf, take one aspect of golf, like putting, and jot down topics you’d like to cover related to putting. When doing this exercise, you’ll find there are tons of sub-topics within your main niche you could write about.
Third Lesson: Address The Needs Of Your Audience
Your article will resonate quickly with your audience if it’s relevant to helping them solve problems and makes their lives easier. This approach will help you build rapport with your readers fast and position you as the expert that you are. Reader-focused content gets results. Content that serves only you and your organization doesn’t!
Fourth Lesson: Become Your Readers
Put yourself in the shoes of your audience. Set a clock for 5 minutes and write down questions your readers might have in your niche. Stay in the mindset of your readers until you feel as though you’ve written down every major question they might have. Each question you come up with could possibly be its own unique article.
Fifth Lesson: Start Writing!
The only way you’re going to build a library of articles that will generate qualified traffic for you is to make the time to write. Schedule one hour of writing time into each day to make sure you’re putting your creative brainstorming ideas to good use.
In closing, Professor Goudwriter leaves you with this message:
Shortcuts never pay off in the long run! Using article spinning software or stealing content is a one way ticket to solitary detention.
Creating a library of quality, original articles will make you the star of your class and allow you to drive a ton of qualified traffic to your website!
