EzineArticles Tips and Training Snippets:

  • Stand Out: Your article must showcase your originality, or you’ll lose your expert status fast against other authors.

  • Lure in your audience, but do NOT mislead them. Articles fall short when they fail to meet the reader’s expectations.

  • Mystery leads to disappointment: Don’t be mysterious with your title and summary – tell your reader what to expect.

  • Your readers’ time is as precious as yours. Give them only one clear call-to-action so they know exactly what to do.

  • Do a little surfing of your own. Note headlines, styles and topics that attract you – integrate them into your own writing.

  • Spell-Checker is not infallible. Remember to review your articles for errors yourself or with the help of someone else.

  • Focus on the process of writing rather than what you’ll do with the end product. Don’t lose sight of the story.

  • If you get stuck in the rut, you AND your readers will get bored. Test different writing styles to keep things fresh.

  • Funny thing about traffic. On the road, we try to avoid it. On the Internet, we always look for more.
