How To Write Article On ANY Subject In 30 Mins

by waken 21 replies
I'm not a fan of software despite owning a few and have never actually used them seriously as the article produced doesn't pass my own standard. So, I prefer to write them on my own.

My questions is, is it really possible to write on ANY subject (even on something that I am totally ignorant about)?

Any warriors successfully doing this? What are the steps to do it? I just couldn't achieve this. I mean, how? It should start with research right?

More questions popping up in my mind..

Where to begin the research with? Is there any particular "place" to do it best? Then, what after the research?

And I've read a number of bum marketing guides teaching how we should find at least 30 keywords for the chosen product and write at least 1 article (preferably 3 articles) on each of those keyword. Is this real? I mean, how could you write so many unique articles on those "almost similar" keywords / keyphrase? You can't just substitute the keyword on each of these articles and resubmit to article directories. It will not be approved!

How are all these possible or it's just all over hyped?

Is there any ebook or course or WSO that help you with all these? I am currently considering a few WSO(s) but not wanting to spend a lot, I am still really undecided..:confused:

    there are plenty of ebooks out there that can tell you how to create articles, with time you do become much quicker. There is software that creates articles but they are a little un reliable.

    If you go to a couple of article directory sites, they normally have "how to "guides that are free, they will give you ideas on creating the perfect article.

      Wow, I was just about to share what I learned in my freshman composition courses and realized, "here's a problem, sell the solution!"

      Then it occurred to me, maybe the op is doing research for his own article writing product... *snicker* Sorry, couldn't resist.

            Of course that's easier. But is that style appropriate for your intended audience? Which brings us to the first(?) rule of composition...

                    I gotta go with the Big Drunk Greek on this one. Write it like you'd speak it. Only, leave out the curse words if your Momma didn't raise you right.

                    It's heresy, I know, but I also stopped worrying about keywords and SE rankings and all that jazz. Just write for your audience and provide truly good information. If you structure your articles correctly, you'll get a lot of views and (most importantly) a high CTR. Keep writing articles and you'll build a steady and growing flow of visitors from the articles themselves, and the SE stuff will take care of itself.

                Well it does depends on quality of work desired . If anything goes you can write a 30 minutes article on most subjects easily . But a good quality article will take a lot of research and time .

      Here's my problem Mike. 10 minutes don't seem to be enough for me. It never happen. And I really wonder how EXACTLY people do this. No worry, my English isn't that good to go beyond the conversational type of articles.

      Using the template above I begin writing without editing and let it be what it will be. When I get stuck I look at what I have and it usually enough to edit and refine until I have the article.

      Once you practice this enough you will be able to write them in 30 mins or less.

      Interesting Matt! I'll try this to see if it's universal.

      I'm afraid I'm particularly poor on these since childhood. But if there's a set of action plan to practice, I'll try.

      Just wanted to add more on the way I'm doing article marketing and a check with successful warriors to see if I'm on the right track.

      I normally go to CB to choose a product instead of researching on keywords and search for an affiliate product to promote later.

      Then, I'll check source page of the sales letter to verify the keywords that the vendor are using and expand the keywords from there using keywords tool. I'm using Adwords Analyzer and Clickad Equalizer and sometimes free keywords tool like VRE toolbar and seobook.

      I'll put them together and eliminate duplicates. But most keywords and keyphrase are VERY similar that it's really difficult to write 2 set of different articles on them. So, that's one main problem I don;t understand how people do it.

      Then I'll google those keywords and start my research. (Fact finding). Authorities site as BigMike suggest, I believe are Wikipedia, eHow, EzineArticles (where else?).

      Then, I'll start writing. But I've never had the success to really write on all those selected keywords. They are too alike, too similar. I can't just substitute it and resubmit the article, can I?

      Then, I'll go to check my keyword density to see if it's fit.

      Can any bum marketing / article marketing expert shed some light on this?

      Thanks Warriors!

        Style is an entire composition course in itself. The classic, The Elements of Style (E.B. White?) comes to mind immediately. There are many other books on the subject.

              Steven - you are the article writer that we aspire to be. We mere mortals require a bit more time. I think my best time so far is 25 minutes, and that was because I already had the research and had also just finished an article on the same topic.

              What kind of formula do you use Steve?

              I have been playing around with Dale Carnegie Magic Formula:

              1min: A real story-- "The Day I almost drown"
              30sec: Action Benefit--"So, wear your life vest and live to see your kids grow up."

              At the very least this formula will get my pen moving.

        Your template really works for me in that I can plug in the different elements and have that first draft to tweak and re-tweak.

    Hi,

    There are a lot of different ideas about article writing and I am finding that it is more important to have good quality articles to brand your self rather than 100's. I read an article earlier today that recommended writing 16 articles per day for 18 months. I do not know how this is possible. What I am focusing on is writing good quality articles and then submitting them to article directories. Focus on the resource box and the title as these are far more important than the quantity of your articles.

    Hope some of this helps.

    Hi

    For research purposes go to EzineArticles, GoArticles or any of the other article directories and look at what articles have been written on your niche. At the bottom of the article page, you need to scroll down, you will see latest articles, most viewed articles and most published ones. You can get a lot of ideas on writing styles, keywords etc.

    Still on research, visit amazon and see what books are selling for your niche, especially the top sellers. That will also give you ideas on what to write about. Also Yahoo answers, forums, PLR articles etc.

    For actual article writing read any of Steven Wagenheim's threads, plus Andy Henry has a good one going at the moment, although I don't have the link to hand. I'm sure there's others as well.

    Do a search here for article writing, article tips etc, there's been a lot written on the subject.

    The more you write the better you will get. I still can't write an article in 15 minutes but that's OK as I know in time I will get quicker.

    Hope some of this helps.

    Best wishes

    Mary
