Let’s talk Article Writing Techniques
Hey thereeeeeeeeeeeeeee! How are you today??
I guess I’m really going through that phase of writing like thisssssssssssssss, for some reason.
It does seem to be a good way to get your point acrossssssssssssssss.
I’m only kidding right?
So that is a technique I could use to gain and keep your attention. it is fairly annoying though isn’t it. I am even annoyed reading it. Interesting article writing technique though that a mentor of mine taught me.
CRACK! Snap out of the daydream and stick with me.
Here is a video I shot to give you an insight into writing a blog post that will rank. I rank on Google and this on page stuff is essential to do it.
5 Cool Article Writing Techniques in 2016!
So let me go into more detail…
Here is the written version of what I just said in case you aren’t a video kind of person.
Article Writing Technique 1
Use a lot of rich media. Definitely have at least one Video and picture in your blog posts. This really makes a difference and breaks up the “boring text’ so that your reader keeps digging your stuff. Like I said in the video, it depends on what your target audience is but, basically everyone likes a video.
Infographics are also cool and you can make them quite easily.
Basically just break up the layout of your blog into different sections. Shoot a video yourself or use one off YouTube and embed it in your blog. Typically put the video towards the top of your post so the person sees it when he first visits your site.
YouTube will also help your blog to rank. Ever heard of vlogging? It is a really cool way to give people info right?
Play around with the font, italics, bold and colour of your text. A mentor of mine David Wood always does this well. he just throws a little bit of this into the mix, generally not too much and it makes the world of difference to your blog.
Bold Text stands out and Italics can keep the readers’ attention. Also underline your keywords so that people and Google know exactly what your article is about.
Using CAPITAL LETTERS and different colours have the same effects.
Just don’t do it too much and all the way through your post or it looks spammy and annoying. These are also great tips for email marketing.
Here are some more tips about Article Writing Techniques.
Of course, all the well-established and long-standing rules of writing and in-text formatting go totally out the window if you’re showing a text message or email in your book. You should absolutely write and format these in a way that looks real; text messages should read C U l8tr, for example, because that’s the way people write them. Above all, you’ve got to be true to realism when you’re writing — even, and especially, when you’re writing fiction.
My mentors and I believe more in free writing though. Yes, you have to follow guidelines but grammar isn’t so important anymore. If you are a non fiction writer, doctor or lawyer or so reading this, you might be hating on me right now! I am just being myself though and on your blog, you can do that too!
Quote other blog posts to make your post SUPER educational. Google the keyword that you want to rank for and maybe link to 2 or 3 of the top search results.
This means that your reader is getting a complete education. It will also help your blog rank.
People tend to listen to other people’s ideas if you reference them. For example, you might night agree with the last sentence but if I source it from someone else’s work, you will agree more! Both of the last two sentences are true anyway so it doesn’t worry me what you think lol!
Use that tip to get your blog posts ranking to the top of Google like I do though.
The layout of your blog posts might stay similar.
Mine are typically
Headline (including keyword)
Maybe 100 words of text
Maybe 500 words of text using the tips above and bullet points, paragraphs, numbering etc.
Picture or infographic. click here to learn how to make one of them.
More text then a sign out and maybe a picture of me. Aim for 1200-1500 words if it is a keyword you really want to rank for.
Don’t be afraid to tell people to like, share or comment on your blog.
Be yourself. Like I said above, there is absolutely ZERO point in trying to be someone else. All you will end up doing is reaching everyone and not relating to anyone. Trust me, I have tried it. I come from a farming background in QLD, Australia and probably won’t relate to a hippie surfer type. Yes I love those guys but we are just different. Cheers to you if you can surf though…way cool.
So be yourself in all of your content. In your article writing techniques, videos and static advertisements.
This is the most powerful tip I have put in this blog.
