It only takes two things two write a good article, what's your content and what are the techniques you used to make your article unique?
In a growing number of content creators everyone of us has the capacity to write something and post it in social media and called it as an article. But there is always a division that separates on every content creators what is good article and what is bad article?
So how can we make our articles appealing and catchy? How can you ensure that the reader will continue to read your article? One of the first thing that you need to consider is that, you need to ensure that your article is relatable and do not use highfalutin words. Make your article simple, precise and direct to the point.
When I write an article I always follow my six rules in writing. To write a piece you need to set certain rules that will serve as a guide for you to write a good piece.
How can you make sure that the reader will read your article? What's your ticket? Of course its the introductory part, when making an introductory statement do not make it long, just choose a punchy statement that will convince or persuade the reader to continue reading your article? Let's be honest if you see a paragraph which is too long one of the tendency is that you will be discouraged to read it because its too long, but when you provide a short, precise and interesting introductory statement the reader will be motivated to read your article.
I know most of us when we write something, we want to write all the things that runs in our mind, but its not a good idea. We need to consider the side of the readers if you want to convinced your reader to read your article, you need to shorten everything just be direct. Don't beat around the bush. If you're explaining something don't use any unnecessary statement or confusing statements.
Every readers are unique we have different profession and every profession has its own jargon. And if you want your reader to relate and understand the things that you are explaining make your article simple and easy to understand. Chose the words where everyone can understand and follow.
When writing an article of course you need to put all the highlight in the content of your article. To the main topic that you are explaining. Don't add unnecessary content which is not related on the topic that you are explaining.
If you want to make your article appealing, be a story teller. When you are writing an article make sure that you write it in a way that you are telling a story. Don't just provide a description, the best way to capture the attention of the readers is when you provide an example or experience.
The article that we write is base on the title and content on it. If you make a click to bait title and the content is not related on it or you just fool the reader, in this case all you want is just views its not sincere. A good article is that when your title and content makes a good connection. Don't fool your readers instead make a way on how your readers fall in love with your article.
For me in only takes one to six rule to write a good piece. How about your rules? Do you have one?
