So I'm thinking of writing articles as an addition to my other tasks. Today I wrote a sample article to see how much it is worth. Making quality content is every article writer's dream. Creating a large amount of content is not that easy for an individual and hence he is to buy from someone else if you are good at writing you can make some real dollars with this. Sites like Iwriter.com and Fiverr can be an excellent source of selling those articles. Your article should be neat and clean with the right amount of grammar. I would like to emphasize that you should go through the topic of the article completely before writing it. Many article writers use scraped and spun content to complete their jobs, but that would not lead you to a good number of happy clients, which is the essential thing in any marketing strategy. Here are my some good point on writing articles: ? Clarity and precision are musts You must be very clear what the article is about, research throughout about it and then write the article. I would advise you to make some short points and put them in your hand or beside the desk so that they would be clearly visible to you in the process of writing an article. It helps in reducing the time in creating the article and helps you in not missing any critical point. Article should perfectly search engine optimized Most of the clients require articles to be search engine optimized since it is the most vital thing today. Over optimization of any keyword is as bad as under optimization. Make sure your keywords are within the first lines of the article, in between, and in the last sentence of the article. Keyword density should be less than 1%, as stated in various on page guides written on blackhatworld. Provide value to the reader Although this is an old emphasized point, it holds true even today. If you provide quality to the reader, whether it be for your tier 1 links or money site, you have very little chance of going down. The old Matt Cutts clearly told this since 2011 at least. Let us give him a good farewell by doing what he asked for. Be clear about the need It is one of the important advice which was given to be by a fellow marketer some days ago. He told me that I should be very clear what my client wants. If you are going to satisfy your client everything else will be fine, he said.
