ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a fact. The search engines love content and the community you serve loves content that delivers value.Ã‚Â By creating value delivering article and blog posts you can kill the Ã¢â‚¬Å“two birds with one stoneÃ¢â‚¬Â. The trouble is; creating articles can be a very time consuming processÃ¢â‚¬Â¦until now. This article shows how I turn out 500 word Ã¢â‚¬Å“value deliveringÃ¢â‚¬Â articles in under 30 minutes.
Create a list of article ideas
Ideas can come at when you least expect it. I find if I sit down & try to come up with ideas I seem to hit a mental block. My best ideas come when I not actively thinking about ideas. But I would often forget the idea before I get around to writing about it.
Now when an idea presents itself I note in the Reminder app on my phone. Problem solved & I always have a ready source of ideas to write about.
Turn ideas into community value
When I write an article or blog post, I take an idea that is relevant to my business, and then I ask how I can write an article that will be helpful to the community I serve.
Use a framework to guide you through the writing process
YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re probably like me; you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have a whole lot of time to write award winning articles. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve found using t a simple framework that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve halved the time required. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve also found that my articles are starting to take on a style that my community can easily identifyÃ¢â‚¬Â¦sort of like a brand identity for my articles.
1.) Create a title that sparks interest in the idea
2.) Find a good picture that supports the idea
3.) Write an introductory paragraph in a conversational tone that outlines the key value to be gained from the story.
4.) Subhead: reiterate the main point.
5.) Paragraph: make the main point.
6.) Subhead/Paragraph: example on the point.
7.) Subhead/Paragraph: another example (if necessary).
8.) Give a strong close with clear instructions and/or Call to Action (click here, leave a comment or pose a question)
