Use Your Expertise to Launch a Discussion
One of the best ways to show your own mastery of a topic in your niche is by writing a discussion-based article on that topic.
A discussion-based article stands out because it covers multiple angles of a topic or multiple perspectives, which are known as counterpoints.
In other writing styles, counterpoints are only mentioned as a part of the conclusion and can appear unimportant. Articles that are discussion-based, on the other hand, thrive on the evolution of a back-and-forth conversation with more than one perspective.
The Discussion Article Template is perfect for authors who understand all of the perspectives and can build a cohesive discussion.
So what do you want to talk about today?
Parts of a Discussion-Based Article
1. Introduction – Lay out the topic and context of the discussion. Include a brief summary of each side of the discussion to be explained further in the body of the article.
2. Body Part #1 – Give an in-depth explanation of one side of the discussion. Provide evidence by including your own unique insights, analysis, and commentary on the discussion topic.
3. Body Part #2 – Give the article a new dimension by discussing another angle of it. This, in essence, is a counterpoint to the original discussion. You can either lay out each part of the discussion separately or use as point/counterpoint style.
4. Conclusion – Evaluate each side of the discussion and decide whether there is a “winner” and a “loser.” If there is, name them. If not, explain why not.
Use this template today to add a new dimension to your article writing and provide engaging counterpoints for your audience.
