Tricks to Do X Article Template

Adding “Abracadabra” to Your Article Writing Arsenal

You may not be a magician, but the Tricks to Do X article template could be the perfect way to share the tricks of your trade with your readers.

This article template converts your specialized knowledge into a scarce resource to share with your readers. Most trick-based articles start with a task that is complicated, time consuming, and something that may require a learning process. The Tricks to Do X article template shares how to sidestep those complications and accomplish the task through tips and tricks.

There’s no magic necessary, but your unique expert advice and tips can seem like magic with this template. Here’s how:

  • Pick a Trick – Identify a trick that saves time, money, or effort on a complicated task. To pick the trick, think about activities that require a high-level of effort. For example, this may include varying degrees of a planning process to achieve a goal or milestone.
  • Announce the Trick – Use the introduction to name the trick and give it a brief explanation. Sometimes you might come across an activity that doesn’t have any tricks aside from being patient over a long period of time. You can still write a “tricks” article on these activities, but if you do, you’ll need to give very valuable tips.
  • Describe It – Describe the tips and tricks for doing the activity. This is the “meat” of the article. Be specific and thorough with your tricks. Here is where you reveal the secret behind your trick and how it works.
  • Make it Simple – Conclude the article by explaining how the trick simplifies the traditional process and reiterate why readers should be using it.

Tips to Using the Tricks to Do X Article Template

  • Audience – Consider your reader’s point-of-entry to the task and any barriers or obstacles preventing them from achieving their goal. This will help you ensure relevance to your audience.
  • Jargon – Complicated tasks in many niches require complicated jargon. Write concisely; however, ensure your article’s message is clearly communicated to your audience by breaking down technical jargon.
  • Value – Tricks are only “magical” when the audience isn’t already aware of how to perform the “trick.” Ensure the tricks you provide are 100% original and provide value to the reader.

Use this template today to add some magic to your article writing efforts, and you’ll be on your way to increasing your credibility as an Expert Author and driving more traffic to your blog or website.

This is a good overview of how to make a simple article – it also helps to make sure that one does not go off on a tangent, but keep notes on where some tangents take you for further information…

People love learning simple tricks that they can implement immediately. And if it can be shown to be simple and easy, rather than complicated and complex, that is even better.
