Article Writing Tips - 3 Simple Tips to Improve Your Articles

By Steven Wagenheim

Not everything has to be complicated. Lots of folks who I speak to, when looking for article writing tips, expect to discover some complex formula for churning out killer articles. Well, as much as I hate to have to disappoint you, there is nothing complex about writing a good article. Writing is as old as mankind itself. There is no mystery to it. Yet, it seems that many beginning article writers don't have clue one where to begin. Well, this article is going to provide you with three simple tips to improve your articles...dramatically.

The first tip actually starts before you even write one word of the article itself. I'm talking about the title of your article. Just like the headline of your sales letter, your article title is critical to getting people to actually read your article. It's very simple to write a good title. Just tell the person what they're going to learn from reading the article. It doesn't have to be fancy. For example, the title of this article makes it perfectly clear what you're going to find out from reading the article...3 simple tips to improve your articles. No mystery there.

The next tip is to keep the article structure simple and well broken up. By simple I mean, provide the reader with a brief introduction telling them what they're going to get out of the article and then, taking a paragraph for each point, give them what you told them you're going to give them. So if you write an article, "3 Ways To Wash A Cat" make sure you have one paragraph for each way. Yeah, I know it sounds simple, but you'd be surprised how many people don't do this one simple thing.

The final tip has to do with your summary. Yes, you want to summarize your article. Why? Because people have short memories. So you want to reinforce, briefly, what you told these people in the body of your article, in the summary. The summary should be very short. Remember, you've already given them the meat of the information so there is no need for a long dissertation.

I told you it was simple. By providing a good title that tells the reader what he's going to read, a simple structure that's easy to follow and a summary that goes over the main points of the article, you'll write articles that people will enjoy reading and actually get something out of.

To YOUR Success,
