These days it seems as if almost everyone is trying to get published. The competition is fierce. But fortunately there is also a magazine or journal for almost every subject, whether on the internet or in traditional print. These tips will help you explore the publications available and match your interests with one of them. They will also guide you through the process of submitting your articles to an editor.
Keep it short and sweet. Your content should not be full of rambling sentences, or you may lose the attention of the person you need most- your reader! While telling stories are a great way to get your reader involved and comfortable, you shouldn’t alienate them by forcing them to read a biography. Get to the point!
Do not write a blog post and then walk away. Sometimes the conversations that can happen in the comments of a post can earn you more money than your main content. Readers are much more likely to return to a site where they can converse with the content provider. You will build trust and return visitors.
Research your topics before writing about them. You are trying to sell to people with an interest in the product so if you don’t look like you know what you are talking about they will know. Do your research at other blogs and use the actual product and your writing will reflect that.
Collaborate with other websites to get your articles published in new places. Most webmasters will happily allow you to guest blog because they appreciate the content as well. They will link back to your site, increasing your popularity to search engines. Try to get your article posted on a well-known site to greatly increase traffic.
Beginners in the arena of article advertising will want to avoid the tendency to build their back-linking networks too fast. Search engines, and Google in particular, have fine-tuned their algorithms to identify sites with highly inflated link activity from month to month. Rather than rising in the Google standings, these sites are penalized for their aggressive activity and drop from sight. Experts suggest that a moderate pace, say 15% growth in inbound links/month will help you grow steadily while keeping you out of trouble.
Try using a bit of humor early on in the article to start things off on a good foot. The key, though, is to use the type of jokes that translate well into written form. If you find the right joke you will have a good article.
Don’t use automatic writing services for article submission purposes. While they can provide you with a lot of articles in a short amount of time, they cannot guarantee quality. Many of them probably won’t even use standard English. Writing content on your own is a much better option.
We hope these tips have made your path to publication clearer. There is a lot to learn about the publishing industry. But the reward of seeing your article in print is worth the effort. If these tips help you find the right publication and achieve success as a writer, they will have done their job.Join only the BEST in Network Marketing, Join Royale!
