Article Writing: An Effective Way to Generate Traffic, Leads and Sales

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.” – Henry David Thoreau

Article writing is a very interesting task. All you need is some creativity and imagination that could inspire you and motivate your hands to write. You must not only look into your very own world but you must learn to go out from your own shelf in order to discover and explore the different ideas and topics present around you.

When writing, you need to have a relaxed mind. With a relaxed mind, you can be aware of the things that are happening at present. Sometimes you don’t necessarily need to have a head full of knowledge. All you need are two very important factors –motivation and inspiration.

In writing an article, try to consider the following:

Choose a topic
Start out with a great idea. Look around you and discover what people are mostly talking about. Sometimes it is difficult to find a topic of your interest. You’ll find it boring and tedious. Consider what’s happening around, the newest trend or anything that could easily catch the attention of every reader. Try opening up your mind and everything will flow smoothly.

Keyword search
Keywords play a very significant role in generating traffic to your site. This means that you have to select a keyword that is search-engine friendly. These keywords are searchable over search engines which most of the users are searching. Therefore putting keywords in your content before publishing it is crucial for visibility.

Create a good title
Headlines are the first words which the readers could see at first sight. It must easily catch the attention of every reader and convey what’s inside of the article. The most important goal of having a good title is to lead each and every reader to take some time to read. That’s the main purpose of an article, turning viewers to become readers.

Input good content
Introduce the topic you will be discussing in your article. Make it simple enough so that the readers could easily comprehend its meaning. It is good tom make an outline of the topics and subtopics included in your article. Break each point into different paragraphs so it will be easier for readers to read. Give information which is scientifically-based and reliable. It will only make your readers doubt if you provide them with false information.

Emphasize the benefits of your product
If you are a business owner who wishes to promote your business over the Internet, it would be very important to include the benefits that your customers could get from purchasing your product. Include all the information regarding your product, how it is used and how it will benefit each customer.

In article writing, the most important thing to consider is the message you want to convey to the readers. It is not how good or grammatically correct your article is, but it is how your article communicates to the readers. It’s not how it acts but how it interacts.
