How to Put Your Heart Into Your Articles to Better Engage Your Readers

When it comes to article marketing for traffic generation, I think we ought to go back to basics. Get this right, articles aren\’t some magic potion. They\’re meant to be informative so readers come away with something. And articles have to be well written, AND come across as genuine–not some underhanded trick to throw in some keywords for the sole purpose of ranking well, but to deliver the information to the reader that is credible and helpful. If you\’ve struggled with article marketing, this article will address the common pitfalls associated with it and how to come out smelling of roses. It really is quite simple when you put your \”heart\” to it.

Nothing bothers me more than an article that has nothing to offer. I don\’t know about you, but I have to be inspired to write. If I have nothing to say or don\’t feel like writing, then I\’ll sure as hell stay well away. And the reason is simple. If your heart isn\’t in it, you\’ll deliver a half-baked article that nobody wants to read or share. In this social networking environment on the net, you\’ll really want to have people sharing your articles to double your exposure. If your article is dull, that will never happen.

Which brings me to the next pointer–be true to yourself. Write about something you know. Because when you do, the reader will be convinced that you genuinely know what you\’re talking about. It\’s easy to spot a fake. So don\’t go down that road. Write about something you\’re passionate about, or even something that irks you. But whatever you do, make sure it\’s interesting. And the fastest way (I find) to come up with topics is to scribble the idea of articles the minute they hit you. Jot down the title of the article as a reference point, and maybe write down a line or two (if it comes) about the angle or thrust of your article. It makes it easier to quickly archive ideas for articles. When you return to your notes, and you\’re in the mood AND have the time to write, trust me, these notes will trigger a 500 word article.

And for readers to take you seriously, it is extremely important you ensure that your articles are well written. If you know you\’re not a great writer (or just an average writer) but you do have a great idea for an article, don\’t be afraid to jot it down nonetheless. There are loads of writers-for-hire out there (myself included), who could turn your idea into a splendid article for you. And one more thing, go for quality. Not quantity. I good article will have a very long shelf life. It will be read by many and referred to others by many, especially when it is published online. Do you want your articles shared on social networks? Well then, if you want more people to read and share your article, you\’ll definitely want to have good content.
