Article Marketing Tip - An Easy Way To Get Started Writing Your Own Articles - Articles Surfing

It is a well know fact that article marketers bring in hundreds of new visitors/customers to their websites just from writing a few articles each week that specifically relate to various niches.

And the great thing is that, once you have written an article, it becomes a viral marketing tool for years to come.

One thing you need to understand, and that is... everybody can write.

Many people totally freeze up when they hear about writing. They believe that writing is an art that can only be mastered by a select group of individuals.

How wrong they are.

Let me explain first what an article is. An article is a short, informative piece of writing that reveals an idea or concept in an interesting, entertaining way.

A good article tells the reader something that he/she did not know before. People reading articles expect to either learn something or be entertained...and in the ideal case, both.

To write an article, you do not have to be born with a special talent. There is no need to study all the classics, or bring up high brow words from the English dictionary, just to show off how educated you are.

You just have to enjoy talking and communicating with your reader. If you write like you speak to a real person, and do not use complicated words and terms, you will be rewarded by your readers with a click to your website.

The key to getting your first article out comes down to knowing what you are going to write about.

It helps to write about something that you have a passion for. If you have a strong feeling for your niche, then it is much easier to come up with a good article idea.

Here is how I do it.

Before I start writing, I like to plan about what I will write. You should do the same.

Are you going to write a 5 tip article?

Or maybe share your opinion about a hot topic?

Or do a review of a product that you used and that may benefit others?

These are all great ideas for writing a new article that will get the attention.

It is also good practice to just start typing what comes up in your mind first. Just let if flow. Never mind grammar or spelling mistakes. It is important to get the first sentences out. From there on, you can build your story.

I like to bring up a statement at the beginning of each article, like the fact that articles can bring in a lot of traffic to your website.

Then I write about an existing problem, like why most people freeze up when they think about writing an article.

And finally, at the end of the article, I offer a solution, like how to get yourself into the writing flow by researching other articles, and taking notes until you have enough lines to start writing your article.

This simple, but highly effective, 3-step method makes a great article.

Remember, there is no rule that says you have to be an artist to write a decent short article.

In fact, you better forget being an author at all. Consider yourself as someone who likes to share his/her experience with others.

And the more articles you write, the more likely it is that you will receive traffic to your website, and traffic means sales. It is really that simple.
