Using Article Writing Software – Is it A Viable Option? Advice for Newbies

When you’re starting out with internet marketing there are so many new things to learn and to do you'll certainly find yourself considering ways that you can speed up some of the jobs that you need to do. One of those will undoubtedly be article writing. For some people it’s great fun, for others it’s a chore, but however you feel about it, it can be a very time consuming activity. One option of course is to pay someone else to write content for you, but not everyone is in the position to be able to afford that, so one of the other options is to consider using article writing software. The question you probably want answering is – whether or not this is a viable option.

There are different types of products on the market. Some are article ‘spinners’ where you put in a whole article and it will ‘spin’ it in different ways and create similar content with different keywords and phrases. The idea is that the content itself is still accurate. Other article writers are different. They offer you firm structures with sentences already composed and you add or delete words, phrases and sentences as appropriate. The ideas is that you don’t have to generate so many of the ideas yourself because the work has been done for you.

Having used several of the most well known on the market, I have yet to find one that I think is worth the investment. However, people do use them. Here are some of the pros and cons of article writing software.


• One off investment cost - (cheaper than outsourcing)

• Can generate multiple articles very quickly

• Can help you organise ideas and structures

• Can help provide alternative content which you wouldn’t think of.

• Can be useful for people who struggle with writing

• Some provide proof reading help by underling errors

• Stops you submitting identical content to article directories

• Can help you get over writers block by generating ideas for articles


• The claims made by many of the owners of the article writers do not stand up.

• Can be time consuming if you have to do a lot of editing

• Can generate sentences that are complete rubbish.

• Can produce content with very poor or incorrect grammar.

• Risk of creating duplicate content if the changes suggested are not enough

• Lacks creativity

• Can lull you into a false sense of security believing options offer are correct

• Can be poor ROI (Return On Investment)

• Stops you developing your own style of writing


Is article software a viable option for article writing?. Yes it is. Would I recommend it? No I wouldn’t or certainly not when you’re first starting out. I firmly believe you’re much better off, learning the ins and outs of article writing, understanding what makes a good quality article before you try messing around with article writing software. I have used several but I have never managed to produce one article that I would happily put my name to

Thanks Shawn

Thanks for the info BIS, I have run through the 30 day challenge on SA and it teaches you how to write content quickly. I feel the tweaking and editing you would need to do with software would make the task longer instead of shorter. I for one would not recommend software especially for someone starting out. You need to learn the ropes and what works before automating tasks.

Hi Mark. Couldn't agree with you more. Learn the ropes first.

What a great article for newbies, BIS! I wish this article had been around when I started ... would have saved me a headache or two. But I am happy for the new comers who will benefit from this. Nice!
