It is difficult to understand that it’s not that easy to become an expert in something. But to be an expert in a particular area requires specific skills. One of those skills is what I call: “Being the source.” Being the source of information for an article or blog post means being able to give it your best shot and then be able to stand behind it.
Being the source: This is one of the most important skill to develop as an online article writer. It’s also one of the most misunderstood. You will need to learn how to find people willing to read your work and read your voice. In doing so, you’ll also need to be able to persuade them that they should go out and buy your products or become your affiliate marketer.
Expertise: Also known as the ability to speak the truth and show people what you know. In the context of writing an article, this skill is represented by having knowledge of the subject matter. Your articles must also show extensive knowledge and professional expertise about the subject. Example: An expert blogger writing about dog health.
Authoritatiness: Clearly show you are an authority and showcase the creator’s authority of the main article (MC) content (if the author is using one). You can then show your expertise in the area as well as your knowledge of relevant facts. This helps establish a connection between your voice and the material you’re writing about.
As we mentioned earlier, the last part of “being the source” is being able to provide good value to your readers. You must be able to provide information that’s useful to them, informative but still relevant, and that you believe in. All of these things will help build up a rapport with your readers, which helps you to be recognized and appreciated.
To become a great online article writer, these skills must be developed. Just remember that to write good relevant, and valuable articles and blogs takes work and dedication. Don’t expect overnight success.
If you want to make a good start in being an article writer, I encourage you to do a search online. There are many online resources that can teach you to write articles that get the job done and create a positive image about your online business. There are also some good courses available, and you can use these to help you on your way to becoming a professional, knowledgeable, and respected writer. The point is that it doesn’t have to take years to become successful as an article writer.
A good place to start is with the following resource: Article marketing and promotion Secrets by Mark Zunger. This is a very easy to follow guide to getting started. You should also try reading other authors’ works to get ideas and tips from them too.
Once you have a few articles under your belt, don’t forget to submit them to as many article directories as possible. Getting more exposure to your site is important, and there are so many to choose from.
