Top Shortcuts Article Template

Don’t Know What You Should Write For Your Next Article?

Mobile shortcuts, cooking shortcuts, business shortcuts, child-rearing shortcuts, weight-loss shortcuts … Shortcuts are everywhere. And here’s the reason why:

We all need more time.

Whether it’s too little or the loss of it, time is at the center of our troubles.

You can teach your readers great methods that show them how to better manage their time, but what they really want is a strategy, here and now, that gets them out of the time mess. They want shortcuts, so why not give them what they want?

A shortcut is a route, method, or means of doing something more directly and quickly. It may not always be the most thorough route, but it typically saves time to get the job done so you can focus your valuable time on other priorities.

Brainstorm shortcuts you have used or you currently use and then use this template as a guide for your next article writing session!

The Top Shortcuts Article Template

  • Introduction: Grab your reader’s attention with a relevant analogy that shows how your reader might be wasting time or illustrate a priority they haven’t been able to get to because they don’t have the time. Rescue your reader by introducing how your shortcuts will help them save time.
  • List: List your shortcuts. For each shortcut, succinctly describe what it is and how to do it.
  • Conclusion: Conclude on a positive note! For example, describe how these shortcuts worked for you and how you’re better spending your time.

Tip: Put a spin on this template by writing about shortcuts that don’t work!

This is a great template to use, but be sure you don’t suggest anything that is less than ethical or cheating, there is NO HONOR IN THAT> what you must do is help people learn efficiency, things which will help them in all they do without wasting their time or getting frustrated. If you show them efficiency they will show you their gratitude and be curious to find out more with a click-thru. If you do this right then you can count on it – a much higher click-thru rate that is.

Actually a template is equal to a short cut only: to save time and enhance efficiency and output. Nice template or shortcut for publishing articles on subject ” Shortcut”. Thanks for giving hints to write such articles.

Great article on short cuts. But short cuts don’t work all time. Google plays major emphasis on high-quality of content and editing.

This template does not suggest short-cuts be taken on the quality of the content in your articles. This template is meant to assist when writing an article based on tips that you have found have worked for you or your business. You are right, major emphasis should always be placed on providing high quality material to your readers!

Sure, and with a little help from Artificial Intelligence I suppose you could literally control the game, however there is a problem with all of this, humans don’t like automated control and so if one person or group uses the same standard/format/template over and over again, the search algorithms will change, making all those efforts for not, regardless of the abundance of volume. This is why article authors should use ALL of the potential templates, not just one, and so, I advise all authors to study all these templates to help them excel at their writing and then to find the right mix to ensure that the readers are rewarded for patronizing your work.

Hi Lance.

Thanks for answering to my humble message.

I said, “Give me a Format/Standard and I’ll move the publishing industry”, because as a Best Practice Researcher and as an Advisor (almost a consultant) formats and standards are everything for me.

This template is a layout whereby, if followed correctly, you give the info a structure that works and hereupon you can introduce improvements.

And is work of each one of us, to keep up to date with the use of Google and Keywords, to make every word count.

That’s basic.


Lance Winslow writes:

Right! I concur. So, as you use this template/format/standard as a baseline for this type of article and then improve upon it using the individual author’s style, then it works well. As a template studier, I definitely see the value, and if you have Microsoft Word, I will send you a whole bunch of templates for other things if you’d like to email me; Lance (AT) carwashguys (dot) com .
