Writing articles is one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful methods of building your reputation and your business. Not only do you get unlimited exposure, but it is FREE as well! If your article is well-written, you will probably get additional exposure. This will establish you as someone who knows what they are talking about and will more than likely bring you many potential clients. People will start to come to you when they need information or products or advice. This is a great way of establishing your PROFESSIONAL presence.
JUMP RIGHT IN
Writing articles is not as hard as you may think. You do not have to be a professional writer to produce an EFFECTIVE article. Below are some tips to help you get started.
DON'T WORRY ABOUT BIG FANCY WORDS
People are looking for easy to understand, down-to-earth articles to help them LEARN. They are not interested in being impressed with encyclopedia language skills.
ADVERTISE IN YOUR RESOURCE BOX
Do not use you article as a big SALES letter for a product or program. Give your info in the resource box. I would recommend you just try to get people to sign up for your newsletter or free report in your resource box. Save the selling for later.
MAKE YOURSELF ACCESSIBLE
People want to know that they can get in touch with you if they have QUESTIONS about your article, website, etc. Always make it easy for them to find you.
PROVIDE USEFUL INFORMATION
When writing your article, try to list some useful RESOURCES that your readers can utilize along with the information you give them. This will further give people a reason to want to stay in touch with you.
WRITE FROM THE HEART
Do not be afraid to let your PERSONALITY shine through in your writing. This will make people more apt to trust you and will also make them more comfortable. Write as if you were talking to a friend. I think people appreciate this more than trying to sound like something you are not!
GO FOR IT
Do not let your DOUBTS stop you from writing articles to build your reputation and your business. I did for awhile, but then took the plunge. My first article did surprisingly well and yours can as well! ;-)
