Here’s a very simple article template that you can use to create (8) articles with less effort than you may think:
Step #1: Start with the Top 7 article template of writing an article with (7) tips, strategies or insights on any given topic centered around your core expertise. This is article #1 for you.
Step #2: Write an article expanding on each of the (7) tips you gave in the 1st article. This is article #2 through #8.
This strategy works because you’re addressing two very different audiences:
Your Top 7 Tips article gives just the strategies, tips and facts …FAST and with little more than a sentence or two as to why the tips are important. The other (7) articles you write that expand on each of the tips goes more in-depth on each strategy telling why, how, who else has done it, and gives more examples for those who want to better understand.
Notes about implementing this strategy:
- The best articles with (7) tips are the ones that include an original (7) tips that others have not heard before. ie: Use your brain, experience and history in your niche to come up with the (7) tips instead of regurgitating the same (7) tips everyone else in your niche uses.
- Do not mention the other tips or your primary article in any of the other articles. ie: Each of your (8) articles in this strategy MUST stand alone. Article marketing is not *article parts friendly* (2).
- Use a simple Introduction–Tips–Conclusion paragraph approach to help your reader understand your context.
- Aim for at least 400-500 words for each article. It’s rare when someone can deliver real value in under 400 words … yet avoid the temptation to include filler/bloat words. Sometimes this means writing 100s of words and cutting your article down in size until you’ve found the best way to deliver the message in few words.
