How to write a good and interesting article: Since most copywriters are working for electronic resources, today’s tips are devoted to the Internet article. Of course, in this area, there are certain genre differences: the content for an advertising website, blog, or online magazine is created according to its own laws.
Whether you work for money or fill your own blog with content for fun, you are obliged to write quality articles. Or not write them at all. Here are some tips from our paper writing help by Bidforwriting.com to make your article looks amazing!
Table of Contents
Consideration of your target audience. This is probably one of the main ingredients for success. Remember: no good material is written “for nothing, for no one,” because in this case the purpose of writing is lost. And what is an article without a purpose!
A target audience is a part of the audience, united by common demographics and cultural tastes, on which the creators of goods and services rely.
As you can see, it’s a concept borrowed from advertising. But even if you are creating something that is not at all about advertising, think about who you are creating it for. What gender, age, interests, and level of knowledge in the relevant area do your recipients have. Considering these factors largely determines the content, structure, and language of your article. You won’t be deciphering what a penalty kick is if you’re writing for an established fan base.
Content. When a reader clicks on a link to a text, he or she expects to gain practical benefit from the information. Respect his desire! The information you share with others must be truthful and very specific, and to do this, go through as many sources as possible or present the phenomenon as comprehensively as possible.
You can consider just one subject and describe it in detail (e.g. listing the pros and cons of an apple tree or all possible ways to buy a cheap flight) or compare several subjects, giving an overview or comparing them by clearly defined criteria (in an article about low-cost companies, this might include things like the age of the plane, the average price of the ticket, number of campaigns per year, reliability, quality of feedback, etc.).
If you feel that specific content is missing, don’t fill the gap with emotion or common knowledge facts. The “How to choose skis” section does not need the author’s enthusiasm about crisp snow and beautiful scenery.
Objectivity. You are overwhelmingly expected to provide objective information. This does not mean that the reader should be exposed to dry, impersonal content. The author can be felt in the text if it does not contradict the laws of the genre (in a blog, the degree of subjectivity is higher than in an advertising or popular science article).
Objectivity is, above all, unbiased judgment. This is especially important if you are comparing several objects or phenomena on certain parameters or describing political events (unless the client clearly states their preferences).
Of course, in an article that motivates the reader to choose a particular product, there is inevitably a conclusion in favor of a particular item. It’s not always an advertisement: perhaps you’ve tried out 15 varieties of carrot on your plot and want to share your valuable experience with novice gardeners. But, believe me, even in this case you should present the information as objectively as possible – so that the reader draws your conclusion before you do. Good quality advertising also encourages a hidden subjectivity – to avoid being too obtrusive.
So how do you make your material as objective as possible? Obviously, by removing the explicit designation of authorship.
Originality. It’s not just and not so much the novelty of the material, but the way it’s presented. Even on topics as old as the world, you can write something completely striking!
Think about what you can surprise the reader: unusual comparisons, unprecedentedly detailed descriptions, amazingly logical exposition, and easy and poetic language? The more clearly you can find your edge, the more willingly you are to be read.
Uniqueness. Simply put, it is the percentage of your text that is not unique compared to other internet publications.
Any text that exists in electronic form is checked for uniqueness with the help of special resources. (link will come later)
The uniqueness of articles is related to originality but does not always flow from it. Indeed, if you are working on the material itself, and even with a great passion then get a high percentage of uniqueness. The best result, of course, is 100 percent. An indication of your creativity and dedication.
But since resources for checking uniqueness count as a match not only large text fragments but also individual phrases, often this figure is reduced through no fault of your own. However, it can also be corrected mechanically by changing the order of words in a sentence and rearranging word combinations.
The above does not mean that the uniqueness of the text is a purely formal criterion, and the ability to create unique content requires only your editorial skills. To “earn” a high uniqueness, keep copying and paraphrasing Internet sources to a minimum. If you can’t do without them (which is most often the case), let them serve as a storehouse of relevant information and a point of reference for logical exposition. And instead of paraphrasing, use summarising. A time-lagged oral paraphrase can help.
Logicality and structuredness
Logicality and structure. Even if you are writing about cosmic chaos, the article should strive for cosmic orderliness. The logic of the story should be clear, so the reader can easily make sense of the text and come back to the right place if needed.
To write coherent articles, you need to be able to organize the information during the inspiration phase. Some creative natures do it with difficulty, but in such cases, helps plan. After all, there is a reason why writing an essay plan was taught so obsessively in school!
Create with pleasure! Good luck to you!
