Most people who gets into article marketing are facing the same problem, they don’t know where to start. If you are reading this article you are probably in that situation, and you must be wondering “how to write an article that will keep the readers reading?” the answer is by choosing the right type of article for your targeted audience. In this article I will introduce to you 6 different types of articles, so let’s take a look.
1- Tips Article
The tips Article is without a doubt, one of the most popular type of article, it provides the reader with useful information on a particular topic. Like tips to learn to play guitar easily or tips lose weight naturally. This type of article is usually formated either in a numbered list, or a bulleted list, and the title usually includes the number of tips given in the article.
2- Story Article
The story article, as its name says, tells a story that may or may not be the writer’s personal experience. It may be fiction or it may be true, but most of the time it will be about somebody else. The important thing is to keep the reader reading and not to know who the story is about.
3- Personal Experience Article
The personal experience article is very similar to the story article, because it tells a story but this time, it is the writer’s own experience related to his niche. For example, if your niche is weight loss and your article title is “how I lost 30 pounds in two months”, all you have to do is tell the reader your story about how you successfully lost 30 pounds in two months.
4- Fact Article
The fact article is an informative article, that affirm something, based on proven facts. for example, “What the sun does to your skin” Would be a fact article, because you can easily provide proof from researches made by dermatologists.
5- Recommendation Article
Since the recommendation article is often used to promote a product, you must be careful when using it, because the content of the article must still be informative. For example, if you are recommending weight loss capsules, the readers must not feel that you are trying to sell them something.
Remember, it is not the article that sells it’s the author’s bio box. The article’s main purpose is to inform. For example, you might discuss a problem of stomach ache with such weight loss capsules and use your own experience as a fact to show that these particular capsules doesn’t cause the stomach ache that others do.
It’s important to wisely choose the type of article to you write, while a list article like the tips article can be easier to write, it may not be appropriate to all situations like weight loss, where emotional triggers are needed. I hope it makes things clearer about how to write an article for your targeted audience.
