Freelance Article Writers Tips

Tip 1: Do Research

Research is a very important step of the article writing process. It gives you an idea of what is to be done and how to do it.

Topic research

Before you start writing your article, you have to carry out exhaustive research on the topic you want to write about. This will give you a rough idea of what has already been covered and what hasn’t so that you can capitalize on that.

Keywords research

After deciding and researching the topic, it’s time to choose the keywords you want to rank for. Tip- Go for those with a high search volume and less competition. You can do this by using research tools like Answer the public.

Convert your topic into the ideal keywords used by people to search and the ones you want to rank for.

Ranking sites research

Upon coming up with acceptable keywords, it’s time to check on the sites that rank for them. Why?

So as you can get an idea of what tactics they used to rank and also what they might have missed out on.

Tip 2: Structuring an Article

This is the stage that determines how an article will finally appear. Whether it will be appealing or not.

Creating a headline

In the article writing process, headline creating comes first. You should be able to come up with a headline that grabs the attention of the readers but depends on the keywords.

Structuring subheads

Depending on how in-depth you want your article to be, you can always structure it using subheads. You can decide to either use the first or second-level subheads or even both.

Tip 3: Writing The Real Article

Spend at least half of the time you use to create an article, to do the actual writing. Why? Because if not done properly it might not convey the intended message.

Grab the reader’s attention with a compelling introduction

Immediately after your headline and equally important, is the introduction to the article.

If you do it the right way readers will read on but if you don’t they’ll leave your site.

Elaborating on subheads

If you begin by creating subheads, you make your article writing as simple as filling in the blank spaces with some useful content below every subhead.

Tip 4: Writing a Conclusion

Article conclusion often takes three forms:

1. Urging readers to take action

Conclude in a capable way of luring readers into the implementation of the contents of your article.

2. Introductory question answering

Just in case you started with a question let’s say  ” Would you like to start your own butter business in Kenya? “, answer it here.

3. Stressing on the key points

Conclude by listing the points you would like the readers to recall.

Tip 5: Content Flow Checking And Editing

It’s the last but not the least step of the article writing process. Make sure you check the flow of your content and edit it accordingly to correct any mistakes made.
