If you’re looking for a work from home opportunity, writing articles for businesses may be for you, especially if you enjoy writing. You can live anywhere you choose, and the startup costs are minimal.
There’s a heavy demand for quality content online after Google’s Panda update, so your business will thrive. The emphasis however is on “quality.”
Let’s look at five resolutions you should make to ensure that your articles are top quality.
1. Although I Will Pay Attention to Keywords, I Will Put Readers First
Yes, keywords are important. However, you’re writing for readers. It won’t matter how many site visitors your keywords attract if no one stays to read your articles. Indeed, there’s every chance that the poor quality of the content means that the search engines bury it forever.
Keep your readers in mind. Give them the information they need. Strive for clarity, and make your content useful. Add a paragraph or two of “action steps” to your article.
2. I Will Outline and Revise My Articles With Quality in Mind
If you confuse your readers, you’ll lose them. Before you start writing, jot down the points you want to make. Then, leave your article for 24 hours. When you come back to it, you’ll see ways in which you can make your article better.
Here’s an efficient work flow:
* Research keywords, and create article titles:
* Outline the titles — aim to cover three or more points in each article;
* Write the first draft;
* Revise your articles a day or two later.
3. I Will Research So I Can Create Unique Content
Quality content is well-researched. Refuse to rehash material you find online. Do your own research: speak with experts.
For example, let’s say you’re writing an article on dog training. For a 500 word article, chat with a dog trainer. For a 1500 word article, chat with two dog trainers, a vet, and a dog owner.
4. I Will Promote My Articles Because They Deserve It
It’s not enough to write your articles, you need to promote them, too. If you’re writing for clients, offer a promotional service. The Web’s become extremely competitive; there’s big competition for attention.
Social media sites like Twitter and Facebook help you to promote painlessly. Also, get your visitors onto a mailing list, so that you can communicate with them again.
5. I Will Look for Ways to Add Value for My Article Writing Clients
Once you have clients, treat them well. Look for ways in which you can add value to the services you provide.
Consider value-adds such as promotion using press releases, and content distribution. Offer to compile material you’ve written in an ebook, tailoring the content to your client’s audience.
The more value your clients get from your services, the more loyal they will be.
Developing an article writing business is rewarding, not only in a financial sense, but also in the satisfaction you get from helping your clients. You’ll have a wonderful New Year when you carry out your resolutions.
