Every article you write should be as great as you can make it if you intend to market the article. If you are not likely to sell the guide but instead place it out to the web for public screen, what should the standard be?
You’re a picture painter of a good reputation. You sell your landscapes for up to $3500 each sentence rewriter. You work hard on these paintings trying to utilize the best available topic, the highest quality canvasses and paints, and also the best skills you can muster. When a painting is finished you sign it says,”I Joe Blow painted this picture “
If your standing as an artist is great, there will always be a demand for your own paintings. Can you sabotage your reputation by putting out a series of paintings with inferior subject selection, poor paints and canvas, and sloppy skills?
Of Course Not!
So think the same way about your writing.
As a few of you know, I’ll write on any topic from”aardvarks” to”zeppelins.” Most writers focus on specific related field areas such as medicine, advertising, or snowmobiling.
When you choose a topic you decide on an audience. The reverse must also be authentic. If you choose an audience you must choose a topic where audience is interested.
The Perfect Article Review
Let us pretend that you would like to sell an guide to a magazine which focuses on a specific audience. Let’s say the audience is people who raise fish as a hobby but only in salt water. The magazine is Named Salt Water Fish Daily.
You have composed a dandy article on raising guppies.
Response: No! Guppies are fresh water fish. Also they’re so common that even fresh-water fish hobby publications could show no interest unless you had developed a new strain of guppy purple in colour with pink poke-a-dots.
So that constitutes a new place for discussion, does not it? Your article should be original and up-to-date and fresh.
For example: Should I write a post on a history subject, where do I put it?
There is not any history category under Education and Reference. I study the article and choose the closest match. I may just place it under the broad heading Instruction and Reference. Often, I place such articles under”Kids and Teens.” I put my UFO posts there also as there isn’t any science fiction category.
I really don’t expect the editor to examine my titles and include categories just for me. He’s over 12000 writers to take care of. But I am one of the very best writers in terms of volume, so maybe I will find a little consideration for future classes.
When looking for an article on the world wide web, what can you do?
And now I shall tell you a secret. Knowing the keyword population used on the world wide web is a valuable advantage for an Internet author. Marilyn Monroe visited our unit in Korea. The article I wrote on the subject is very common.
This article was a really slow starter but took off and continues to dash by my other articles concerning number of readers. It just passed Bed Bug Bites or Chicken Pox: A Definitive Analysis.
Bed bugs are back so there’s a big market for bed bugs.
Here are some factors for your article:
- Does this have broad curiosity (BI) or some limited special interest (LSI)?
- If it has LSI, submit it to a publication that you have studied (more than 1 issue) that concentrates on the exact audience you want to reach. You might query the publication first and get their writer guidelines.
- Just do it! Do not contend with editors. You will normally lose. If you really don’t wish to change your little gem, then take the guide, cutting your paycheck.
- If you write your article I suggest you just start writing. When you come to an areas which you have very little knowledge, don’t quit writing. Simply put a bunch of dashes where the missing information will proceed.
When you complete the draft, see whether there’s some type of order that may be pursued. Write an outline to follow.
Now do some research to fill in the blanks.
Try to find fresh up-to-date information for your post.
Put your ideas in your article. It is your canvas, isn’t it?
Keep sending out the article to a single magazine at a time till you sell it. When an editor gives comments or proposal, think about rewriting the article and submitting it to that editor.
I have published hundreds of articles in journals and magazines. When I retired from industry, a trade magazine hired me . The reason was that I had composed engineering posts on a monthly basis for its magazine for many decades.
Know This: Editors will bend over backward to help you get an article printed in their magazines when its focus is the same as the magazines.
Magazines work on a novel plan that dictates the types of posts that it will publish in a certain monthly issue. You need to ask them to supply you with the list of articles desired for a particular matter. Then write an article for this issue making sure it gets into the editor a few months before the publication of the issue.
Here are some rules for article writing:
Do not over edit your post cutting out subject matter that the editor might want to include.
It’s better to send in a longer article than one that’s so brief it will become trite. You can shorten rather than cut.
I suggest if you are likely to cover a subject make sure the policy is comprehensive.
The editor has a pencil.
If the guide is overly broad, change it to a series of posts each covering a significant point of interest.
Editors like to conduct show. Why? Since a series of articles will occupy space which the editor will not have to fill for the upcoming few issues.
- Use short paragraphs but vary sentence length and use words known to the reader.
- Use headings where appropriate to break up the test.
- Properly place footnotes as endnotes. Practice your Style Manual.
- Never send an editor copy which isn’t clean and neat.
- That way when Magazine A yields your article, you don’t send that same copy to Magazine B unless it’s still in excellent condition.
