EzineArticles Tips and Training Snippets:

  • Readers shouldn’t be “none-the-wiser” after your article. Put yourself in reader’s shoes: Do you take away quality info?
  • Is your article a jungle? Keep paragraphs between 3-5 sentences to ensure your readers can navigate through w/o a machete.
  • No ifs, ands or BUTTS? Use “butt” and “but” wisely. Spare yourself from being the butt of a joke, but humor is welcome. :)
  • Would you go to a theater if the projector was broken? Ensure links & videos on your page work before sending readers.
  • Sugar & spice & everything nice, that’s what great articles are made of! Variety creates uniqueness. What’s in your recipe?
  • A comedian crashing a funeral is a faux pas. Approach your audience with the right tone & content by targeting them.
  • Quality Stick: Can your audience get the same info from other sources? Don’t re-use heavily saturated content. Think new!
  • The authority of an article on diseases is questionable when the Resource Box states “SEO Services.” Be relevant!
  • Always, ALWAYS Proofread: “The gadget offers 3 potions (options).” “I new (knew) Tom.” “Your pail (pale) skin.”
  • Sign It and Put a Stamp on It: Enhance your credibility & build your brand by signing EVERY article w/ your name & a CTA.
  • Develop Solid Contacts: Networking with other authors can encourage guidance, support and cultivate experience.
  • Maintaining reader-driven quality is hugely important in article writing. How do you stay in check?
  • Errors in logic & inaccurate info can cripple your credibility. Stay vigilant & check out this video:

  • Go-getter! RT @haroldforbes: Just received my package from @EzineArticles for becoming a Plat Author. Thanks, guys. Nice thought.

Misc. Words of Wisdom:

  • Watch this comedian FAIL to see what happens when quality is not his number one objective:
  • Articles are great gifts for the curious mind! Avoid regifting to your readers by providing unique content & a fresh link!
  • Walk a mile in your readers’ shoes: Plan around your audience. Knowing your target is the key to providing quality content.
  • Just like your accessories & dress, the content in your resource box and links should coordinate with the article.
  • A budding rose can’t grow w/o water. Be sure to ‘water’ your articles with the nourishment readers need: relevant info.
  • You wouldn’t hang two identical paintings side-by-side. Your landing page content must relate, not duplicate.
  • “He shoots, he scores!” Make your article writing a success by setting goals. Success comes from planning!
  • Don’t trap readers in an old, dusty attic. Clear the cobwebs in your article by ‘sweeping’ over the content … PROOFREAD!

You know how some things just stick in your head and you remember them every time you do something?

That’s what your one that goes “A comedian crashing a funeral is a faux pas. Approach your audience with the right tone & content by targeting them.” has done to me. Lol. It’s stuck in there.
