The basic strategy involved in writing articles which can be presented for reprints through ezine publishers as well as other webmasters is to attract large amounts of people who are pre-qualified to visit your website.
7 mistakes which must be avoided in order to make your article eligible for massive distribution or picking up by others are:
Other than proofing of your article by others, writing paragraphs which can be clearly defined is also very much necessary. Just imagine how boring it may get if you have to read a huge text blob containing 20 continuous sentences.
Nowadays, readers usually just scan the article to gather small pieces of information which are easy to digest. This is called ?info-snacking? and going into details of each article is a thing of the past now.
The whole article must be written in only one person. Whatever person you are using, be it first person (me, I), second person (we, you, us) or third person (them, they, she, he), consistency must be maintained throughout the article.
Article Content Not Concentrating On Reader's Needs And Preferences:
Always write articles by putting yourself in the reader's shoes and finding out what he/she needs from the article. Reader's wants can be researched by conducting audience surveys or doing keyword researches for search engines to understand reader's requirements.
Too Much Bragging, Self-Promotion And Hype:
The article body should never be filled with hype, deliberate self-promotion or unjustified links for visiting your sites. You can never outsmart the readers with your egotism. It is always better to conduct pitching or selling activity of your company through a RESOURCE BOX which is placed below the article body as these boxes usually get a CTR of about 3%. Hence, its advantage must be taken by not trying very hard to sell in the article body.
