I love writing articles. Writing is fun for me, so I rarely get bored. This is why I’ve been using article marketing to promote my writing services and products for over a decade.
If you’ve been promoting yourself as an “article writer” and offering “SEO articles”, how’s that working out for you?
You may be doing well, but if you’re like the majority of writers, you’re not. You’re exhausted, frustrated, and you think that Web content writing is for idiots, or maybe people in developing countries who aren’t crippled by mortgage repayments and credit card debt.
Well, listen up, my weary friend. You can achieve success with article writing, if you stop thinking about it as “article writing.”
You need to think strategically. Bus drivers and airline pilots both move people from place to place. But consider their skills, and their remuneration.
When it comes to writing articles, you can be a bus driver, or a pilot. Your choice.
By “think strategically”, I mean exactly that — have goals for what you’re doing. If your goals extend no further than getting your next article writing gig for $5 or $10 an article, you’re a bus driver when it comes to writing articles.
One of the reasons I wrote the 100 Day Writing Challenge was to help interested writers to start thinking about strategy, rather than just hunting writing gigs. There’s nothing wrong with going after your next writing pay check, BUT if that’s all you’re doing, you’re working very hard to stay in exactly the same place.
I hope that the Challenge writers develop productive habits, and learn how to think strategically, even if they’re beginning writers, who are writing what they know.
If a coaching student tells me he or she is writing articles, the first question I ask is: “Why? What are you getting out of it?”
Ask yourself that question. Then develop some goals for your article writing.
New Article Writing Strategies: Profit Today
Angela Booth’s article writing guide: “Increase Your Article Writing Profits — Write Fast, Write Easily, and Never Run Out of Ideas Again” is for writers who are burned out and unhappy. She offers great new strategies writers can use to build their skills, and their income.
After buying the guide, one writer, Gary, said: “I wanted to let you know how well it’s working for me. I put methods 3 and 7 into use immediately, turning a couple of existing articles from “overview => subset”. Now, only an hour and a quarter after downloading the guide I’ve listed 69 article titles and written 4 new article drafts. It’s been a great investment, thanks for another really useful guide!”
