Yesterday while I was writing about the one "secret writing tip" that has made my writing easier and faster (make a list) I ended up with a list of 10 steps I go through each time I write an article.
That’s how powerful the "make a list" technique is for writing. You will actually create another article while writing the first one.
So here’s my new list of writing tips:
1. Find out what keywords you need to use in your next article.
2. Write out a headline or general subject title (you will revise the title later).
3. Make a list.
4. Write one or two sentences about each point on the list.
5. Write an introduction that tells people why this is important to them.
6. Create a dynamic headline. (Use a headline/copywriter’s manual if you need help)
7. Write the conclusion. (Don’t forget a call to action.)
8. Include links in your resource box or author’s information paragraph
9. Submit to EzineArticles.com, or to your favorite article directory.
10. Repurpose the article for your ezine, blogs, and other uses (use it as a special report, which can be downloaded when people sign up for your ezine.)
The Eleventh Step
There really should be an 11th step here: What other lists did you see while writing the first article? Is there another article you could develop based on the first article? There usually is.
For example, I just created another article while writing this one: how to create dynamic headlines, step #6, is worthy of expanding into its own article.
See how this works? Just walkin’ my talk…
