EzineArticles Tips and Training Snippets:

  • Two lumpy paragraphs is like eating frozen fruitcake. Break up paragraphs, throw in headers and it’ll be mouth-watering.
     
  • “Best of” lists are everywhere this time of year. Why not write an article w/ your thoughts of the “best of” your niche?
     
  • Write an article readers cannot resist! Plain articles are easily passed up – write something NEW and inspiring.
     
  • You’ll be amazed at how many little mistakes you’ll catch if you read your article aloud before you submit it. Get vocal!
     
  • Create great articles by asking questions. Fresh questions build discussion. Start asking questions to stimulate thought.
  • That article’s got personality! Infuse your persona into writing and you will endear yourself to readers: trust = traffic.
     
  • Commit to a writing schedule. You’ll increase your overall production if you set concrete goals and stick to them.
     
  • Always deliver on your promise in your title. Readers want to know the expertise you have. Don’t leave ’em hanging!
     
  • Use outlines. No one gives a speech on the fly, so why write articles that way? A little prep work goes a long way!
     
  • Linking to an unrelated site in your Resource Box is like ordering a latte and the barista serving you tea instead.
     
  • Different styles work better in different niches: Professional, casual or avant-garde. Find what works best for your niche.
     
  • Always keep your target audience in mind. Knowing who they are and what they want lets you stay one step ahead.
     
  • Identify the main point you want to get across: Write it down, visualize it, outline it and compose your article!

  • On Motivation: Keep a Brag File for your successful articles and revisit them when you’re in a slump to get back on track.
     

Misc. Words of Wisdom:

  • The power of market research = Traffic. Target your market: who are they, what do they need and what are their barriers?
     
  • Write topics you are familiar with AND with familiarity. Your expertise and natural prose will draw the reader in.
     
  • It’s never too late to try something new. Even if you’re an old hat at marketing, experiment to see what works for you.
     
  • Article marketing is like a virtual store. Stock shelves with unique articles to attract readers and customer loyalty.
     
  • Long and winded paragraphs bore the reader. Organize your articles so the reader can easily grasp the topic.
     
  • Keep up on the latest trends and continue your education. Tools like blogs, videos and courses will ensure success!
     
  • Prioritize your day for effective time management. Plan goals (x articles written by time y) and keep to your schedule.

I don’t quite understand the hash tag thing. How does that work?

By adding a “#” to an abbreviation associated with your topic, you make it easily searchable on Twitter. So by searching for something like #HAHD, you’ll find all posts associated with the 100 Articles in 100 Days Marathon Challenge which contain the hash tag #HAHD.
