How To Write A Wonderful Article In 30 Minutes.(4 Simple Steps).

So you want to learn steps of writing a good article and you don’t know where to start from?

Awesome article should be more informing and interesting.

The article should contain five major parts,that are;

•Title.

•Opening paragraph.

•Three major talking points

•Article body.

•Resource box.

When writing articles we have two types of tones to be considered,the tone can be either professional or friendly.

But wait,

What’s a professional tone and a friendly tone?

When writing a professional tone,the tone is more formal where you just talk about the subject matter without addressing the reader.

While,when writing a friendly tone article,you keep a conversation like you’re talking to a friend.You mostly use ‘You.’

For example;

You can learn,read,understand and write a good article in your own words.

With these techniques,you can write a catchy article.

Look!

At first when I started learning article writing,it was tough but when I tried to employ article writing steps that am about to show you,everything got well.

Here’s how you can do the same thing that I did and worked well on my side.

1.Choose A Good Topic.

A good topic is the one that you get it easy to write and after writing it attracts the reader.

When writing your article,you should tell your audience you know what you’re telling them by choosing a good topic.Let the reader feel he/she can implement what s/he is reading immediately after reading.

Don’t make it for yourself when choosing a topic,select a topic you’ll enjoy writing as topics that require too much research are sometimes hard to handle.

Don’t choose a topic that may result to overthinking while writing your article,as overthinking will make you surrender writing.

How To Research A Topic.

After you’ve selected a topic,the next supper power tip is to research your topic.

Some writers get it hard when it comes to this.

But wait…

It’s good to do research when you’ve chosen a topic you’ll enjoy writing,and the one that doesn’t need a lot of research.

I learnt some research techniques from my mentor Mr Walter Akolo the founder of Freelancerkenya.com.

This technique is working well in my side and I feel like sharing with you,I think it can help you as well.

Here’s how you can do research for yourself.

Lets say you want to write about;how to become a writer and get paid for it.

The steps are simple.

Naturally,just copy paste the keyword phrase onto google search box,then click to the site that seems to be offering the most comprehesive information.

Getting it right?

Well.For instance,if your keyword phrase is how to make money online as a freelance writer.You will see more sites offering the same information.But don’t open just one.Open about three in different.

Boom!!

Does it really sound good?

If yes,then stay with me here as am taking you to another technique.

Google the subheadings.

Let’s say you’re writing about 7 ways upgrading software can boost your business.

And one of the subheading is “Boosts productivity”
Just write onto google search box,“How upgrading software can boost productivity.”

This will give you more ideas to infuse into your article.

Note!!

Remember to jot down anything you find helpful from your research.

Lastly,choose a topic that will attract more readers.

After choosing your topic,the next step is;

2.Choose A Title.

The title grabs attention of the reader.You can get title ideas from popular article sites and bookmarking sites like Digg.

You should be contraversial and specific when choosing your title.

Before chosing a title,here is what to consider.

√The title should promise the reader a benefit of reading the article.

√The title should be clear and direct.

√The title should be specific.

I think you’ll agree with me when I say,you’ve to make a title arouse curiosity and lure the reader into the article body.

You should let the title select your audience,and remember title is the part that gets attention.

Headline is the first step of persuading your audience to read your article.

Here’s the interesting part.

The technique I use when writing a title.You may find these techniques useful in your own work.

The technique is,I always ask myself these questions.

•Who’s my audience.?

•Why will the audience want to read my article?

With this two questions,I will be able to produce a powerful and catchy headlines for my content.Here’s a good example of one of my headlines;how to start freelance writing in 7 days.

Is this helpful?

Okay!let’s jump to the next step that is;

3.Talk To Your Audience.

In order to create curiosity to your readers,your article should begin with an introduction.

You can introduce your article with a startling statistics,posting a quote,or using a provoking question.

When writing your article,remember to organise your work in a logical manner,so that one idea can build the next idea.This is to help your audience understand you well.

Now this is important part of it.

Try to remember when talking to your audience through your article,that you’re not talking to robots but human beings.

So,try to add some sipices in article,the way you add them in your vistors stew to impress them.But remember not to over use the spices as it can be ineffective in passing the intended information.

Try to avoid fluff as well.Don’t use excess unnecessary words,as clients prefer if you get straight to the point.

4.Include A Conclusion.

The conclusion is the call to action.

Don’t just end your article witout a conclusion,as this is a place where you can offer more information or a free report.

You should make this part a call to action but don’t try to sell.

Let the reader feel s/he can do what is in the content as well.

It’s upto you.

The above are my 4 simple ways of writing a good article but there are more..

Don’t just sit,it’s time to start implementeing one by one,and remember practice leeds to perfection.

On writing is a matter of exercise.So do more as you can and start writing valuable content in 30minutes.

Remember to share and leave a comment.And if you’re getting it hard to write a good article just leave a comment stating your problem,I will help you.
