Are you looking for some great ways to get your articles read? Do you have a lot to say or valuable information to share with people out there but you just don’t know how to make sure people are finding and reading your work?
If you want to make sure your articles get read, it all begins with the writing process. Before you put a single word on paper (or on the computer screen), there are some important things you need to know. First, do you have a hard time writing or do you find it comes easy to you?
Just as there are some people who find writing very difficult, there are also some people who find reading very difficult. If your article is boring or bland, this makes it even more difficult to read and it’s not likely that many people (if any) are going to take the time to try to read your article.
Instead, you need to find some ways to make it easier to read. Here are some tips:
· Use a bold, catchy headline title
· Write an exciting intro paragraph that hooks the reader in
· Write with subheadings
· Use bullets and numbered lists to break up the text
· Write to the average reader level- about a 5th grade education
· Use fun facts or quotes where applicable
· Use humor where appropriate
Readers shouldn’t need a dictionary beside them to understand your article. While you may think it makes you look more experience and intelligent, it actually makes your article more difficult to read and most people will be turned off immediately.
When writing for an online market, you need to make the article easier to read on a computer screen. This is where the short sentences, bullets and lists, subheadings and more will come into play. When you follow these tips, you will be guaranteed to get your articles read more.
