7 Ultra Hot Tips To Get Your Articles Read

There are a lot of people who truly dread writing papers and writing articles. They often feel that all their work is going to waste and that no one ends up reading their articles. To some people, reading articles seems like work too, especially if the article is boring and very bland. Articles are supposed to be read, all for the purpose of imparting your important message to others. If it is not read then it is, in fact, a waste of time and effort.

All the same, it's a cold, hard fact that articles need to be written if they are to be read. Kind of a given, right? It’s just a matter of making them so good that people can barely resist reading them. Making a good article doesn’t have to be strenuous and stressful. If you learn some good article writing skills and find the things that make your articles stand out, the rest is pretty easy. Once you get the hang of it, writing articles can be a lot of fun, as well as profitable for you and your web site.

To make sure that your articles get read and enjoyed by millions around the Internet, here are six ultra hot tips to make your articles more exciting and generate more interest. Words are powerful and you must learn to command your readers with them. 

These tips are Basic Article Writing 101:

1) Keep paragraphs short. People on the Internet do not read....they scan. When the paragraph are long, the words get jumbled in the mind of the reader and you will lose them. Pretend everyone who reads your article has ADD.

If it's too long, the reader will just quickly disregard the paragraph and move on to much easier-reading articles that are good to look at as well as read. Paragraphs can be a single sentence, sometimes even a single word! A good rule of thumb is 1-3 sentences and then create a new paragraph.

2) Use numbers or bullets. As each point is stressed, numbers and bullets can quickly make the point easy to remember and digest. Short bites of information allows your readers the chance to digest it easier. As each point, tip, guide or method is started with a bullet or point, readers will know that this is where the tips start and are being stressed.

Format your bullets and numbers with indentations so that your article won’t look like a single block of square paragraphs. Add a little bit of flair and pizzazz to your articles shape. You'll keep the interest of your readers.

3) Use sub-headings to sub-divide your paragraphs in the page. Doing this will break each point into sections but still would be incorporated into one whole article. Since pages are scanned, headlines and sub-headings are important. It will also make it easy for the reader to move on from one point to another; the transition will be smooth and easy.

By creating sections with headings and sub-headings, you will never lose your readers attention as well as the point and direction to where the article is pointing.

4) Provide a good attention-grabbing title or header. If your title can entice a person’s curiosity you’re well on your way to keeping their interest for the rest of the article. Use statements and questions that utilize keywords that people are looking for. Provide titles or headers that describe your articles content but should also be short and concise.

Use titles like, “Lose 30 Pounds In 30 Days On Strawberry Shortcake!”, or “How To Get Enthusiastic Response --Even A Standing Ovation Every Time You Speak!” .You could also use titles that can command people, for example, “Make Her Yours In Six Easy Steps”. These types of titles reach out to a persons’ emotions and makes them interested.

Additionally, the "steps" type of titles are especially attractive to people. That's why you see so many of them.

5) Keep them interested from the start to the finish. From your opening paragraph, use real life situations and stories that can be adopted by the reader. Use good descriptions and metaphors to drive in your point, just don’t over do it.

Driving your examples with graphic metaphors and similes would make it easy for them to imagine what you are talking about. Use example, tell the a story. This will make the experience pleasurable and enjoyable for them.

6) Utilize figures when necessary and not just ordinary and insipid statements. Using specific facts and figures can heighten your article because it makes it authoritative. People are attracted to statistics.

7) Don't be too formal, it should be light and easy in them and flow. Put your own personality into your writing. Why else do people find fiction more fun than a dusty, old math book? Be like a friendly teacher having a little chat with an eager student. Let the passion for your subject matter come through.

There you go! That should provide you a good foundation on which to write articles that people eagerly want to read.

Here's to your success!
