5 Foolproof Ways to Write Better Web Articles

Everywhere you turn on the web you hear some marketing guru spouting “content is king!” Unfortunately, this annoyingly cliche little tidbit is true. If you jumped into internet marketing blindly, and are now hampered by your inability to write an engaging article that doesn't suck, well my friend, this article is for you. Even if you’re dumber than a box of rocks (not saying you are), these tips can help you write better web articles and move forward to pursue your dreams!

Foolproof Tip # 1: Don’t Be Perfect

This works in your favor right? Gone are the college English days of literary perfection. Truth is, most people don’t read above a 10th grade education level, and they don’t really give a crap if your writing is perfect. Perfection is fake. In addition, nobody wants some know-it-all telling them what they have to do. Authority on the web is important and highly profitable, but people want to decide whether or not you are an authority on their own terms.

Foolproof Tip # 2: Be Disagreeable

Here’s the thing. You have to get people to notice you. One of the best ways to do this is to play devil’s advocate. This works best if the subject is extremely polarizing, and your opinion is one that goes against societal norms. Whatever your stance, just make sure you can back it up with sufficient evidence. If you can do this successfully, sheer curiosity will win you more readers than you know what to do with.

Foolproof Tip # 3: Embrace Your Inner Kleptomaniac

You've got to get your name out there right? Maybe you’re new and you have no experience in writing effective copy. The best thing you can do is steal ideas from the big boys (or girls) and put a unique spin on them to make them your own.

There is no need to re-invent the wheel. Nobel Prize winner Camilo Jose Cela said “everything has already been said, but since no one pays attention, it has to be repeated every morning.” So say what you've got to say proudly and in your own voice, regardless of whether or not it’s been said before. No one thinks like you do, so it’s bound to be just unique enough to earn a visit or two.

Foolproof Tip # 4: Show Them That You Care

The web is filled with “me marketers” who are solely out to push their own agenda. Stand out by purposing to never be one of those people. The easiest and most fulfilling way to gain an audience is to care about people by giving them what they want. When you do this, you will get what you want without struggle.

Listen to the complaints and problems people have and offer solutions. Suffuse your writing with genuine care and concern and people will take notice. Not only that, but they will line up to do anything you ask of them.

Foolproof Tip # 5: Relax!

No, really relax. If you keep obsessing over the little things you’re liable to give yourself a coronary. Have a drink or three. Ernest Hemingway said “Write drunk, edit sober,” for good reason. OK, there is some debate on whether or not he said it (see, nobody’s perfect), but the point is RELAX! Get naked if you have to. Calming your nerves will help unblock your mind to make the words flow easier.

And...Cue Music

Writing for the web is not rocket science. Like most things it’s often easier than you think. Before you pull out all your hair and run away screaming, take a few breaths and trust yourself to deliver a quality message that will help people. Do this and you’ll be well on your way financial freedom via your sexy online career in no time.
