Episode 20 of the “2 Minute Approval Tips” Video Series
Ready for an incredible writing session, you zero-in on your computer screen to give it all you’ve got. After typing away energetically (and maybe a little manically), your energy plummets with this message:
There is a minimum word count for the Article Body, 400 words.
You glance at your word count: “Only 350 words?!”
What do you do? Tack on an extra 50 words or fluff up a few sentences to squeeze by the minimum word count?
Watch this video to discover how you can reach the minimum word count the right way to increase your credibility.
A Quick Recap of the 20th “2 Minute Approval Tip”
- Idea Generation: Make a list by brainstorming key points you want to share with your readers before you begin writing your article.
- Adjust Your Focus: Think about how broad or narrow the subject is you’re writing about. Adjust your “lens” or focus by deciding what to include and what to leave out to create the perfect article.
- Know Your Stuff: Write in niches where your expertise truly flourishes and don’t shy away from sharing your personal experiences! Readers want to hear real stories about how the subject matter of your article has affected you and why it works.
- Bonus Tip: Add another relevant tip for your readers to think about. Offer your readers multiple options rather than just one because you never know which of your recommendations will impact them the most.
Avoid the fluff in your next quality, original article and reach the minimum word count the right way. Doing so will increase your credibility and build your readership.
