Discover How to Write Articles in 15 Minutes
If you want to know how to write articles in 15 minutes, then read this. One of the drawbacks many web copywriters and bloggers face is how time consuming it is to sit and write articles for their web pages, blog posts and article directory publications.
Although you can use my secret to writing articles fast for your website and blog, I mainly use this strategy when submitting articles to article directories.
Elastic articles is my name for articles that stretch from an article directory across the Internet to the author’s defined destination. It’s like a bridge made of taffy. Nice name, isn’t it? If it catches on, you heard it here first.
My secret to writing elastic articles really has two parts. You can do one for sure, but it’s up to you whether you want to do the second one, or not. It requires a bit of an investment. It has a high success rate.
If you want to know my secret, read on…
For some, it takes all day to research and write a completely original article. Top web writers and veteran bloggers report that they can beat an article out in less than 10 minutes. This is an especially valuable skill when you blog several times a day, as well as, write a half dozen articles, too.
One of the keys to being able to pound out article after article is knowledge. Top writers who have been writing on a niche topic for years are able to skip the research phase. Those who really know their industry can put together 500 words even faster.
What chance do new home business startups have to take advantage of article writing if they spend all their time guessing what to write, verifying facts, and publish?
Experienced writers can write copy like a flowing river. Some have a secret weapon, as I do, which I’ll reveal in a moment. But first, here’s a simple formula anyone can imitate to write elastic articles in 7 minutes.
If you can develop content that is informative, provides a solution, and is unique, you’ve solved a lot of problems that come with making money online.
And unless you have some capital to play with, you probably won’t be able to outsource “content creation” for a while. So you have to learn how to do it on your own.
First, let’s strike down some myths. You don’t have to be a good writer in order to write good articles. Especially articles that will get visitors to your website. Second, your articles don’t have to be comprehensive. Often times, you only need to make three points in a 400 word article. You’re not aiming to give them a thorough education.
You’re aiming to give them enough information to where they want to go further into your website… and further into your sales funnel.
All articles have three phases:
1) Research your article
2) Write your article
3) Proof Reading and Publish
Give each of these steps 5 minutes, and you’ve got an article in 15 minutes. Although, if you haven’t learn the in-and-outs of your niche, you will need to some research. Now, there are several ways to get this done. The quickest and easiest way is to visit just three sites.
Research Your Article
A. I am an avid believer in Wikipedia. If you’ve read any of my posts, you know that I quote Wiki regularly.
B. I do a search on topic at an article directory, because that’s the whole purpose of article directories. You can copy any article without giving the author credit. But you can topic ideas. So search the article directory to pick up 3 good points for your article.
C. As a last resort, search Google for similar information on the topic you want to write on.
That’s it. Write two or three dozen articles, and you’ll get good and fast at doing your research in less than 5 minutes.
Write Your Article
If you done your research well, it’s easy to use the points to write your own original article. Here’s what to do:
I write the title of my article first. Some people do this last. Then, I write 2 or 3 sentences as my opening paragraph. These sentences explain what the article will be about. One well known strategy is to write “if this, then that.” It goes like this: “If you’re looking for 7 fantastic tells when playing poker, then you want to read this article.”
For each point that you decided on, write 4 or 5 sentences. Then, sum up. Write another 4 or 5 sentences summing up what you just said in the body of the article. Tell your reader what they can do now since they’ve finished reading your article. Close by repeating the title of the article (although you may have to reword it slightly).
That’s it. Follow this process and you have a nice 500-word article.
Secret to Writing Elastic Articles
My secret to writing elastic articles really has two parts. You can do one for sure, but it’s up to you whether you want to do the second one, or not. It requires a bit of an investment.
The first part of my secret to writing elastic articles is to just write. What I mean is that when you have an idea, or finish doing research, start writing and keep writing. Don’t stop or pause to fix grammar or misspellings or punctuation. Keep writing until you finish. Then, go back and fix those problems areas. Anyone can follow this strategy. It works.
The second part of that requires an investment is to use voice recognition software. I use Dragon Software and I can attest to the fact that I can talk a lot faster than I type — and I’ve been writing so long, my fingers on my laptop keyboard.
Now, you got the strategy I use to write elastic articles in 15 minutes. My bonus tip is this. I write 30 articles at one time using a plain text file. The next day, I go back and review the articles, and make any adjustments.
I publish and schedule some for my blog and I post others in article directories. Then I write 30 more articles. All this takes me about 8 hours. I do it because it’s my job. Some people choose to write half that number and some take more time with each article. Your choice.
