If you want to write internet marketing articles, you need to learn how to do so effectively. Everybody tries to write articles these days, and most people aren’t very good at it at all. Even people who are not fluent in English try to write articles for American, Australian, British, and Canadian readers. If you are a natural English speaker, then you will find that article marketing doesn’t have to be very challenging.

If you follow these steps, you will write wonderful, effective articles!

  • Just start. Sit down, open up a word document, and begin. You will find writing to be easier once you get started. As long as you are writing about a subject you know a lot about, you will notice that the words come out easily and naturally.
  • The article doesn’t have to be formal or perfect. You’re putting it out there for people of all ages to read, so there’s no need for you to write a professional report. Just write casually as if you are speaking to a friend. Writing too formally will only make the article appear boring, and you will be at risk of losing some readers.
  • Think about the length. Most articles are between 400-600 words. You don’t want to make it too short, or readers might not find it interesting enough to stay on the page for very long. If you make it too long, though, readers might find it tedious and boring. Think about what you are trying to convey and try to get the main point across. Keep the article length around 400-600 words.
  • Format is important as well. People find extra long paragraphs to be hard to read. Because of this, you need to make bullet points or a numbered list. People mostly look over articles rather than read them from beginning to end. They look over the page to see if anything interesting pops out at them. Keep this in mind and format the article in a way so that the most important parts are easy to find.
  • Do a bit of optimization for the search engines. Think about what keyword(s) people will use when searching for the topic about which you are writing. Include that keyword, along with a couple of variations, in the article. Most people consider 1.5% to be a good density rate, meaning you should use the keyword(s) an average of 1.5 times per 100 words. If you are writing a 400 word article, then use the keyword 6 times.

These are just a few tips to help you get started with article writing and marketing. At first, you will probably find it hard to sit down and write, but once you get used to it, you’ll find yourself writing 5 articles a day!
