Tips to Improve Your Writing

Great writing doesn’t happen by accident. Like any other art or trade, it requires lots of discipline, careful study, and a great deal of time. If you find yourself struggling every time you sit down at your laptop (or, if you’re more old fashioned, with a pencil and paper), you’re not alone. Every great writer struggles from time to time, but the ability to push through the rough spots usually helps you emerge better at your craft. Here are seven tips to help you improve your writing.

1. Do it Often

Think of writing like you’d think of running. You wouldn’t just wake up one morning and expect to run a marathon — you’d need to train and practice for a long time before you were able to go a long distance without difficulty. The same holds true for writing. You’ve got to write frequently — every day if you can. The more you do it, the more natural it feels, and the easier your thoughts will transfer to written (or typed) words. If you need inspiration or a prompt, there are many books and even more websites full of prompts for creative writers. Pick one and get going.

2. Rewrite

Your first draft is never your best. Your second draft isn’t much better. Read, re-read, and carefully examine your drafts, using hard copies if you can to physically cross things out and write down comments. If you can, leave some time between writing and revising; you’ll have an easier time reading what’s actually there instead of what you want to be there.

3. Keep Reading

Read great writing — as much as you possibly can. Think of yourself as an apprentice learning a sacred craft. Look at the masters and see how they do it. Plot, sentence structure, character development, dialogue — you can learn a great deal about all of these things by reading great books on a regular basis.

4. Nouns and Verbs

Great writing typically means strong nouns and verbs rather than long strings of adjectives and adverbs. They’re often more specific and get right to the heart of what you’re trying to say. Remember: quality isn’t always quantity. If you find yourself using lots of adjectives and adverbs, see if you can replace your qualified noun or verb with a stronger, unqualified one. For example, you can run really super fast, or you can spring. You can eat a big whole lot, or you can gorge. For pithy writing with few adjectives and adverbs, try some short stories by Ernest Hemingway or Gertrude Stein.

5. Do it Properly

English is your tool, so it’s essential to use it properly. There are zero excuses for poor grammar, misspelled words, or improper usage. If you’re unsure of something, look it up. Lots of reading will help you learn how to use English properly, but if you want to go one step further, get a copy of Strunk and White’s Elements of Style and read a few pages each day. It’s a favorite reference book of many writers, and it explains the rules of the language in an easy to understand manner.

6. Intelligence and Honesty

Many beginning writers try to make their writing cute, trite glib, or flippant. Others go in the complete opposite direction and come across sounding pretentious. Any of these approaches is a mistake, however. Instead, show respect for your subject matter, and offer your true voice to your reader. Be smart, and be honest. It’s always the right thing to do.

7. Know and Learn

Regular reading will help you with this, but make a point to learn as much as you can. In our look-it-up society, there’s no good excuse for not having an answer, not knowing about a topic, or not doing your research. Trust your senses and be inquisitive. It’s a characteristic that will serve you well as you embark on your journey as a writer.

How to Write a Salesletter Even If You’re Not a Copywriter

 I wrote my first real salesletter back in 2002 in an effort to sell a tiny little music accessory (called an oboe reed) on the internet. By all accounts, the salesletter was terrible. Except that it sold a lot of our products. I was excited and thought it meant I knew something about writing copy.

As it turns out, I had stumbled onto the secret for writing effective copy, which I’ll reveal in just a moment.

While there are countless books written about how to write copy, many of them can be completely overwhelming. So at the risk of underwhelming you, what follows is probably the world’s shortest guide for how to write a salesletter.

It is written with a single focus: to give you a framework to follow, starting just 5 minutes from now, to write a salesletter even if you’re not a copywriter.

One tip before we jump in:

While writing a sales letter is about “writing,” it’s best not to put on your writing cap. Stop trying to “write” and simply transcribe what you would say if you were talking to a single person about what you have. That makes this process much easier.

So let’s get started…

STEP 1: Shine Your Spotlight on the Right Target

Writing effective sales copy is about making a connection, on an emotional level, with your reader. This is difficult to do if you focus only on your own wants and needs.

The way to create an instant connection is to structure what you write from the perspective of your reader. Step into their shoes and stay there.

The goal is to develop a clear understanding of the emotional condition of your reader. What are they feeling? Once you know what that is, practice feeling it yourself. This will inform the way you write and it will allow you to truly understand the perspective of your reader.

Writing a salesletter is about them, not you. Stop thinking about what you are trying to achieve with the letter and start thinking about what they are trying to achieve in their life. Shine the spotlight on your reader and keep it there.

How are you supposed to get them to want what you have if you’re not shining the spotlight on it?

You don’t have to create desire in your prospects for what you are offering. Your prospective buyers already have wants and desires. What are those wants and desires? That’s what you focus on. The trick is to position what you are offering as the vehicle to get them those wants and desires.

Instead of “trying to sell,” the goal is to create an environment where they want to buy.

STEP 2: Uncover the “Big Idea”

Building your salesletter on a single Big Idea is how you keep your reader interested. Your copy is focused on the big idea and keeps referring back to it to revitalize the reader’s emotions.

For example, imagine that you design websites for clients to sell their products/services on. This is a small idea. Your potential clients would be far more interested, inspired and excited by the idea of buying “virtual oil wells” that are setup for them to create revenue on demand. Your “web design” becomes a “virtual oil well.” That’s a big idea.

What is the big idea that your product is built on? If you don’t know yet, figure it out before you start writing.

This clarity helps your writing because it gives you the “main idea” that everything you write about relates back to. It serves as the foundation of your writing because it’s exciting/inspiring/empowering to your reader.

STEP 3: Write a Headline That Conveys Your “Big Idea” in a Way That Prompts Your Reader to Have to Know More

If you were walking down the street and your reader was approaching you from the other direction, what would you have to say to the stranger to instantly attract their attention about what you have?

Your headline doesn’t need to solve their problem in one sentence, it simply needs to get their attention. You’re not closing the sale here, you’re simply opening the door.

After you’ve written your headline, step into the shoes of your reader and ask yourself, “Does this make me want to read more or not?”

That will tell you if there’s more work to be done.

STEP 4: Transport Them Somewhere Else

You can’t sell much if no one reads your letter. So the first priority once you earn your reader’s attention is to keep that attention.

The beginning of your salesletter is not something you gloss over just to get to the part where you tell them what you have. The beginning of your letter is where you earn (or lose) the opportunity to tell your reader about how you can help them. After the headline, this is the most important part to get right!

If the beginning of the letter bores them or turns them off, you are done.

This is why starting with a story is so effective. People love stories. They love to see how stories end. Stories are a very simple way to draw your reader into a new world and transport them away from what they were just doing.

So start your letter with a story, or a little known fact, or a mystery or something else extremely interesting. This really IS important, so take time on this step.

Ask yourself, “What is the best thing for me to say right now that would make my reader want to know more?”

STEP 5: Tell Them What You Have

Once your reader is sold on reading your letter, that’s when you can move into the body of your writing and introduce what you have.

Remember, the goal here isn’t to sell them, it’s to engineer an environment where they can’t help but buy.

This is why positioning what you have as a clear and effective solution to a problem they have is so effective. People already want solutions, so half of your work is done.

The body of your letter is where you tell them what you have. It’s where you mention the features and benefits of your product or service. And it’s where you make promises and claims that you support with proof.

The body of the letter has to appeal to your reader’s mind while not losing the connection to their emotions. This is why the Big Idea is so important. Referring back to the Big Idea rekindles the emotional flame in your reader.

STEP 6: Is Your Offer Good? Is It Great?

At some point in the body of your letter, you’re going to spell out exactly what your buyer will get and for how much. This is called your offer.

Do you think your offer is good enough to sell? That’s the starting point. Good enough is not good enough. Great is where you want to aim. When in doubt, increase the value of your offer.

The goal is to make your offer such a “no-brainer” value that they want to buy it. Great offers make everything else easier.

That way you can get out of the “selling” mindset and into the mindset where you’re simply offering people diamonds in exchange for pennies.

Put yourself in the shoes of your reader (again) and ask, “Would I buy this without even having to think? Is it that good? Or would it be something I’d have to consider?”

STEP 7: Filling in the Holes

Effective copy leaves nothing to chance. Have you left any questions unanswered? Have you left any objections unresolved?

Is there any other information required for your reader to take action?

Have you made it clear what action is to be taken and given a believable reason for that action to be taken sooner than later?

You need to imagine both sides of the conversation. Writing effective sales copy is not about talking at your reader, it is about having an “imaginary” conversation with them.

The Copywriting Secret I Discovered in My First Salesletter

Back when I wrote that first salesletter for my products, I stumbled upon a big secret to writing effective sales copy.

Here’s the secret:

What you say is much more important than how you say it.

And figuring out what to say has everything to do with the person who’s going to read your letter.

Never take your focus off of that person. And do the work required to truly understand that person on a level deeper than they even understand themselves.

That’s the work to be done.

Creative Writing For Kids A Great Endeavour

If you are one of the many parents who are seeking ways of helping your kids learn creative writing, and want them to enjoy writing, you are not alone! Writing is an essential life-skill and creative writing in personal letter, blog or research paper form can help students in all aspects of their lives.

There are various incentives parents can use to encourage creative writing for kids and one of them is with regard to their particular interests and everyday lives – a daily journal! The main point is to guide them into a creative writing habit and therefore, it is not important what their creative writing relates to, provided they are writing something! A daily journal should not concentrate too much on grammar, punctuation and spelling, which can be introduced at a later stage.

The criteria at this stage of creative writing are to stimulate a flow of thought and ideas, as well as allowing kids to enjoy themselves while writing. As they start with creative writing the imagination will be activated as woould an awareness of self expression. It becomes their personal world, and with this creative writing is a means of release for kids’ frustrations and conflicts. Children can become lost in themselves while writing, and this form of creative writing should become a regular exercise. You could even use this as a method of self-imposing their particular ambitions and goals in life!

Various research conducted has shown that for many children, especially boys, the concept of creative writing does not produce any degree of enthusiastic response. It is therefore essential that they are motivated to appreciate the value of what they have written and that it is their own creation. Creative writing for kids can be a means of freedom and release that is not yet influenced by the turbulence of adulthood. This is a stage of their lives where their imagination and inherent creative writing abilities can be brought to the forefront.

With correct guidance in creative writing, kids can transfer their imagination into the creative sphere.

Encouraging creative writing in kids has in many cases resulted in extraordinary surprises. Children are frequently amazing and original storytellers, because they do not fear failure or ridicule of their work. Their creative writing is full of expression and uninhibited, because of the lack of preconceived notions.

Creative writing for kids is an adventure for everyone concerned and is something that can lead to amazing developments in the future!

Organizing and Starting Your Writing Project

Organizing and Starting Your Writing Project If you’ve ever been involved in a writing project that went off the rails after only a few pages, the odds are that the project manager did not spend sufficient time organizing the project before beginning the actual writing. The bigger the project, the more organization and planning it will take up front to ensure success. Even for small projects written by a single individual such as is done with most small business proposals getting organized up front is just as important.

In the organization phase, there are many questions that must be answered. These are all discussed below.

Who is the audience?

Sometimes, as in the case of answering an RFP (Request for Proposal) or applying for a grant from a specific committee, you have a very precise idea of who will read and judge your writing. In other cases, such as writing a report or a proposal for a product or service, you may need to gather information about the audience you will write for. Who are they? What do they already know? What do they need? What do they want to know?

You might need to do some research to get this information. If you are working inside a big organization, question the marketing and customer service departments to find out what they already know. If you’re writing a proposal, it might make sense to talk to the prospective clients or recipients of your proposal so you can be sure you understand their perspective.

What is the objective?

What do you plan to accomplish with the writing project? If you’re writing a business proposal, your goal is usually to pitch products or services to a customer. Project proposals are usually written to get a project approved by your company or client. If you’re writing instructions for users or if you’re working on a public service campaign, your goal is to provide information the readers need. If you’re writing a report, your objective is usually to document the methodology of a research project and explain its results. In any writing project, you always need to keep your objective in mind so that you don’t waste time on tangents that may be distracting and don’t add value.

What are you promising to deliver?

Are you describing a need and explaining how you will fill that need? Are you providing instructions for using a product? Are you describing all the aspects of a proposed business venture and providing statistics to show why it’s a good investment? Are you comparing alternatives so your readers can make the best choice? Make sure you understand all the elements your writing project must include. If you are not familiar with the type of writing project you have been assigned, you may want to start by looking for samples of that sort of document to see what they typically include.

If you are pitching products or services, check competitors’ web sites and marketing information, too, so that you’ll be sure to include all the information they do. If you are responding to an RFP, make sure to read all the instructions carefully to understand what you must provide and the format in which you must deliver it. If you have not been given a list of contents for your writing project, make an outline for your project and get your manager and other team members to sign off on it, and decide whether you need to deliver a printed document, a PDF file, or both.

What resources do you have to work with?

Your organization probably already has existing web site content, brochures, or other advertising or information content. If you’re describing a not-yet-developed product, you most likely have access to a white paper, specifications, or other descriptions. Proposing a new business venture? You should have statistics and financial information. Don’t forget that many of your resources may also be people who have information you need.

What tools or supplies do you need?

For most writing projects, the basic requirements will be a word processing program on your computer, but in some cases you may need more components, such as photos or charts to include. Make sure you have them in hand or know where and when you can get them before starting your project.

You may also want to invest in business packages that can help you with your writing project. A proposal kit is one such type of package you should consider: these kits are specially designed for writing proposals, business plans, reports, as well as other general business documents. A kit contains thousands of templates with extensive examples and instructions to guide you, as well as detailed sample proposals and reports for you to study. All of a pre-made kit’s templates will be visually appealing or you can customize them with your own company logo and design theme. And the templates work with basic word processing software, so using it will speed up your project instead of inserting a big learning curve into your schedule.

What’s the schedule?

If you are responding to an RFP, writing a grant application, or proposing a project to a potential client, you will have a very specific deadline to aim for. Make a schedule for your writing project. If others are providing information or producing parts of your project, assign one person as the project leader, and make sure all participants agree to meet their assigned deadlines well before the final delivery date of the whole project. Be sure to allow time for editors or other team members to review the writing in each section, as well as time to make changes and incorporate new information.

At the high end, large companies have entire teams of people working for months on a proposal for multi-million or billion dollar proposals. Most groups spend days or weeks preparing proposals in small groups. Many small businesses have a single person responsible for writing proposals. Small businesses are also more likely to be the ones who’s schedule is “tomorrow” or over the weekend on short notice. The shorter your schedule the better off you will be starting with a ready-made proposal writing kit and doing it yourself. If your idea is to hire a proposal writer be aware that many professional writers will reject clients who are not already organized or who have very short deadlines.

Don’t forget the delivery stage of the writing project. If you are delivering a printed document or a PDF that must be included in a software package, you may need to schedule time to produce and deliver the final format. Make sure you have people assigned to complete every phase of the writing project.

Now the writing begins…

After you have answered all the questions discussed above and completed any advance research you need to do, you’re ready to sit down at the computer and write. With good organization and a well thought out plan in place, you should be able to efficiently fill in the outline for your proposal , business plan or report or provide all the information required for your RFP or funding application. You’ll look like an expert when you deliver your writing project on time in a thoroughly professional manner.

How To Write A Novel In A Month

It is not difficult to write a novel in a month if you do what the professionals do. Many writers such as Agatha Christie and Ian Fleming, for example, were able to churn out dozens of novels in their life time because they followed certain basic principles to write their novels in the shortest possible time.

The following are some of the ways that have proved to be effective in getting to write a novel in a month or less.

The first thing to do is to have a two sentence summary of the story you want to write, followed by the main characters of your story. This way you will be able to maintain focus about where you want to start and end your story. Next, it is advisable to decide beforehand the number of chapters your story will be divided into. If perhaps you want to have a twenty chapter story, then you will also have index cards on which you will write the number of each chapter of your novel. Behind the card, you will have a brief summary of the contents of the chapter.

Thirdly, you will then have to decide the point of view of the novel. You will have to decide from the beginning whether it will be in the first person or third person narrative. This will then be the basic planning of your novel.It is called an outline.

Next you will have to make sure that your novel’s characters and events remain consistent throughout the story. You cannot have a character being an old man and yet have him die at the young age of twenty six somewhere during the narration of the story. In order to maintain consistency, you will have to write elaborate notes about the ages, birth dates, places of birth, death dates, educational status and gender of your characters, which will have to remain consistent throughout the course of your novel.

Start each chapter with a gripping opening and make you chapter endings as ambiguous as possible. This has the effect of making your readers keep guessing what is to happen next. In this way you will make your story gripping and riveting. This is called the plot of your novel. We can summarise plot in the following way manner:

P = for people
L = living with conflict
O = overcoming obstacles
T = transforming the lives of characters

However, without strong characters, no matter how tight your plot is, your novel will be no good. Remember, a novel is about people, which is going to be read by other people. So make sure that your plot has strong characters, who are believable and active. This is where dialogue comes in. Dialogue also helps to move the story forward. However, intermingle your dialogue with narrative.

Finally, once you have done the above, you can sart writing your novel by beginning at any chapter of your choice because you already have a summary of each chapter on your index cards – the outline of your novel. This helps to overcome writers’ block, which is the undoing of many writers of fiction which slowsdown their writing. This can ultimately lead to giving up or making your work tedious and boring.

Finaally, write everyday. You don’t have to write for hours at a go. You can divide your writing into fifteen, or thirty minutes slots. If by the end of each time slot you have written a thousand words, for example, this means that in a day you will have written four thousand words if you write in four thirty minutes slots. Multiply this by twenty days and you have eighty thousand words, enough for a full length novel. The next ten days will be for editing and polishing your novel. By the end of thirty days your novel will be complete. Doesn’t this sound feasible and possible? You can do it if you plan your work and make sure to write everyday for twenty days.

If you are writing in thirty minutes slots, this means that you will be writing for two hours everyday. You can add an hour each day to check spelling, grammar, and paragraphing after every thirty minutes of writing. By the time you start editing your work after twenty days, your work will be much easier and pleasant to do. It is possible to write a novel in thirty days.

Skills Required For Creative Writing

How does one become a skilled creative writer? This is an article which aims to explore outside the usual writing tips about technical ability, time management, vocabulary choices, etc. There are already thousands of articles and books, even classes on that subject matter.
Being creative comes naturally, for example, Frank Baum’s writings were based on what he dreamed. When we dream all the characters in the dream are created by our minds. It is said that each character in a dream is also a representation of the person dreaming. It is as if when we dream we are designing a storyline and are playing the roles of all personas involved. In this way, the skills required for creative writing can be likened to the subconscious dream-process of creating fictitious characters and being able to make up stories for them.

Anyone can dream, anyone can make up a story, however, getting in the zone, in touch with the imagination’s flow is easier for some than for others. One really should have a talent for it to start with, or else all the skills in the world will not help at all. Once you know for certain that you enjoy making up stories and can do so with the ability to intrigue and amuse others here are some actual skills to hone.

Have an idea, a seed that will grow its own story. Most writers start out with a main character then ask questions of themselves such as who are they, where are they, why are they here and what are they doing. The most important question is probably why. You can write down a series of settings and scenarios, but to be able to pin-point a motivation will be perhaps the driving force of your entire story, or at least as surrounds this particular character. If you are having multiple main characters you need to also define the relationships they have with each other, how does one affect the other.

Even those that do not actively pursue to write fiction will manage to create a story when making assumptions. If we see a person running down a road in clothing obviously not for jogging, let’s just say it is a man in a suit in this case, we will probably wonder is he late for an important appointment, or maybe he is having a flashback and running from a hallucination, or perhaps this is just a funny person that runs everywhere he goes. Each one of those imagined scenarios can be the start of a creative tale.

As I have already mentioned it is important to enjoy the process of creating stories, why self-satisfaction is important is due to the need to have patience, not everyone is going to accept your vision and want to read your imagined tales. Even if you do have a receptive audience, it also typically takes a long time to get to the point of making substantial sales. And if you are waiting for major publishers to pick up your work beyond the scope of self-publication, it is important that you still continue to keep at your art.

If you cannot produce a body of work in an ongoing sense, it will be harder to be taken seriously in your craft, by readers, your peers, reviewers and the like. You must have a love for what you do in order to persist; it is integral to being able to adapt to meet the needs of your readership. What if you are approached by a playwright that would like to have you develop a screenplay to bring your story to the stage audiences? In such a case, even with the aid of a professional at your side, you need to have the ability to stick to writing and re-writing and even learning to be flexible in collaborative efforts. It should come naturally for a creative person to think outside the box, however, a literary creation is very personal. How personal, well it is pulled from the imagination of the writer, their brainchild. This brings to mind another important skill to have as a creative writer, the ability to take criticism.

Everyone has opinions and sometimes we can learn from them and sometimes it is best to just move along. Being gracious is good manners and all, but what I want to underline here is the ability to not let it get you down or frustrate you to the point of letting it control your writing. If you get hung up on a bad comment it can create a writer’s block or a sore memory tied to a certain aspect of your work. It can even create paralyzing self-doubt. And if you love what you do, this will help you push past such negativity.

Introduction To Writing Quality Magazine Articles

 If you want to write magazine articles for a living, it can be a very lucrative industry to get into, if you do it right. Some magazines will pay several hundred dollars ( or a lot more) for a good quality and well researched article

But before you put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) first you need to know the basics of writing good quality magazine articles.

First of all you have to know your market. This means having knowledge of what type of readers the magazine targets.

For instance, you might want to write an article for a women’s magazine. But first you have to know what type of women read the magazine.

Are they career women? Stay at home mothers? Young women? Older women? Oversized women?

You see, sometimes it’s not as easy as you think to know exactly what type of readers read which type of magazine.

There are even magazines aimed at writers but some are aimed at fiction writers while others are aimed at medical writers, non-fiction writers, online writers, SEO writers, copywriters – and the list goes on.

That’s why it’s so important to first of all know the type of readers that the magazine appeals to.

Next you need to read at least one issue. You may get away with reading a few articles online. But nothing beats holding a physical copy of a magazine in your hands for getting a good idea of what the magazine is about.

If you don’t want to have to go out and buy a magazine, see if your public library has a few issues, or loiter in your local newsagents and scan through a few magazines. Or if you have to fly somewhere, the airport magazine stores are a great place for research.
Next you have to decide what it is you know (or you can research) that will appeal to the magazine editors.

But don’t make the mistake of coming up with a similar idea to the types of articles that the magazine already publishes. Come up with a much better idea instead.
When it comes to pitching article ideas to a magazine editor, it’s better to pitch something that stands out, rather than something that fits in.

But don’t be too different. Just be better.
Think about what the magazine is missing. Perhaps there’s another angle that isn’t being looked at in the current and past articles. Sometimes, articles that open a proverbial ‘can of worms’ produce plenty of feedback, which is what the editors love.

Or think about writing a series of articles of perhaps 2 or 3 articles on an on-going topic. Editors love these kind of articles too because it entices the readers to buy the next issue and the next. Just make sure that your articles end on a hook that keeps your readers wanting to find out more.

And lastly, what you must do is find the magazine’s writers’ guidelines and follow them to the max. If you can’t find the guidelines anywhere, email the editor and ask for them.
All magazines have guidelines for submissions and queries and they expect them to be followed. They don’t like working with difficult writers (and there are quite a few) who won’t follow instructions. And if you don’t submit your work correctly, they won’t want to do business with you.

So what you need to do next is look around online for websites with lists of worldwide magazines and newspapers or go to your local library and borrow the Writers’ and Artists’ Year Book or the current Writers’ Digest. Or better still look at some magazines while you’re there.

And start looking for article ideas.
You could also look for readers’ letters, handy tips, jokes, flash fiction and any other short submissions the magazines are looking for because these can earn you a good rate of pay per hour for such short items.

In some magazines a reader’s letter will pay up to $100 when published. That’s a good return for only 5 minute’s work.

So start submitting queries. Aim to submit 5 every week and that way, you’ll be on your way to a full-time freelance writer in no time.

Professional Writers

Writing VS Journalism:

Some people might think blogging and journalism are same; both are there to publish content online. But actually they are quite different.
A Journalist is someone who writes for a journal or paper, usually writing information keeping in minds every side of a tale. Journalists are needed to be impartial and to keep from expressing their views in news stories. Reporters also need to have a number of different resources before posting an article.
Blogging is not Journalism. Writing a blog includes self-expression. Journalism looks for to spread information as impartial and be as impersonal as possible. A media may run a blog as part of their operations, and allow their writers to blog there.

Hey everyone. Most of online businesses nowadays are rapidly migrating to content marketing, that’s why this post is devoted to the most reliable article rewriter on the market. Are there any explanations? Well basically because there is a plenty of these programs! Trying to choose an article rewriter isn’t easy, and hopefully this short story will remedy that case.

Numerous bloggers are not sure if they require a text rewriter to make their business more efficient. Well, the answer is definitely Yes, and No at the same time. Writers don’t NEED one, but blogger’s life is much easier with one. Nowadays there’s no doubt that internet business brings income, but the question is how to get a noticeable one. For example – essay service) has become an effective business just from writing articles. And in fact it would be impossible to create a big online content marketing campaign without any kind of automation. Below there will be useful info about the very same tool which was used to create hundreds, if not thousands, of unique texts that Google absolutely LOVES – even if I know nothing about the subject.

Sound too good to be truth? Well it’s not. Further reading will answer the questions. Article rewriters are popping up all over the internet. Why it’s so? Because people are starting to realize the real power of article marketing. It not only gives hundreds of high-quality backlinks to our sites, they can bring in a nice surge of website visitors. Best of all, the traffic is free, and will continue for many years .

As nice as article marketing is, it’s still not ideal. Google is detecting, and deleting any link that has “duplicate” content. The simple but sad case is when a website ranks for nice volume keywords and brings a lot of leads to it’s owner, but suddenly it gets banned after Google understands that its texts aren’t unique.

Fortunately there are solutions. One solution is an article rewriter or “spinner”. These handy programs remove, replace, and rephrase paragraphs and sentences in our texts which helps to make them look like original to the search engines. This is a beloved technique for many marketers. They make hundreds or even thousands of analogues of their original article and blast it all over the internet. Anyway, these article rewriters are not perfect. The texts that they generate out are easily differentiated from legitimate content. People using these programs are moving away from real article marketing. Nobody is going to read a publication if they see generic text, and that’s why nobody is going to follow the resource box link pointing to author’s site. Without traffic there will be no sales. The only thing these “articles” are doing is wasting the directory editor’s time, and cluttering up space on their server. Computers will never have the same understanding and creativity the human intellect has, and these applications will always come up short.

There are programs created for this small problem, and they are MUCH better alternatives than content rewriters. The disadvantage of these programs is that they require some user assistance, but the benefits of using these programs is much more important. Bloggers need to treat their marketing efforts as a business, and they want a computer to do everything for them then they’re definitely in the wrong industry.

For those who are not afraid of investigating in a min amount of time to create unique texts, then these programs are perfect. One can even take a topic he knows nothing about and create a unique, well written article in a few minutes. There’s no better way of getting HQ articles.

How to Write an Instruction Manual or Handbook

Have you been assigned the job of creating an instruction manual or employee handbook? Are you wondering how to go about accomplishing this task?

Don’t panic. You probably already know all the information you need to include, or at least you know where to find it. Now all you need to learn is the process and the structure.

To start, write a description of the audience your manual or handbook is intended for. What do they know already? What do they need to learn? What are their goals? What are the goals of the manual or handbook? You may want to discuss this audience description and goals with colleagues or your boss to make sure you’re including everyone and planning to meet the needs of the organization.

Next, make a list of all the topics you need to include. Do these topics need to be in a specific sequence to be understood or learned? In other words, does one section build on information learned in the previous section? Or do topics / procedures need to be grouped by category, such as “Employee Benefits” or “Troubleshooting Procedures”? If so, order your topics accordingly. Then share your outline with others and request their input to make sure you’ve thought of everything. Get approval if needed. This outline will become the basis for the table of contents in your manual. Now you’re ready to get started writing the body of your manual or handbook.

Although you could write in any sequence to fill in your outline, we’ll start at the beginning. First you’ll need a Title Page with a descriptive name, like “How to Use the ZYX Printer” or “Smith Corporation Employee Handbook.” Next should be a copyright page, which should contain the date of printing and information about ownership by the author, company, or publisher. This page sometimes includes disclaimers, such as a statement saying the publisher and author are not responsible for misinformation that might be included or for any information that was left out. If you find you have a lot of disclaimers or a lengthy legal explanation, you should put that on a separate Disclaimers page.

Next will be your Table of Contents, but the odds are that you will need to create and insert that after you have completed writing your manual, so for now, just keep in mind that it belongs here.

The first page you will probably want in the body of your manual is an Introduction, where you’ll explain the purpose and goals of the document. You can also include here any assumptions you are making, such as that all your readers are using a specific operating system or that they are familiar with standard medical devices, for example. If you need to list a lot of Assumptions, include them on a separate page.

Now you’re ready to write the main content of your manual or handbook, with all the procedures or topics your readers need to know. After you’ve written all your topics, you may want to end with a Conclusions or Summary page, and perhaps include an Index to help readers find easily find topics.

Does that sound like too much work? Keep in mind that you don’t need to start off with a blank word processing screen to do all this. Using a pre-designed kit can help tremendously. The templates in a kit can give you a big jump start on creating your manual, and help you at each step along the way. Each template contains suggestions and examples of information to include on that page.

There are more than a thousand topic templates, including templates for all those pages mentioned above in a kit. You can probably find precisely the topic you’re looking for, but if by chance you don’t, a well-designed document building kit contains templates that you can adapt for any purpose. For employee manuals, there are many company-oriented topics like Mission Statement, Organizational Structure, and Ethics, just to name a few. The templates are Word documents, so you can easily adapt them for your use, and you can insert graphics like charts, illustrations, and photos.

Any manual or handbook is likely to be read by a large audience, so you want to be sure that the grammar and spelling are perfect. It’s always best to use a professional editor if you can, but if that’s not in the budget, then enlist someone who is not familiar with your manual’s content to proofread it. Testing is an essential component of finalizing any “how-to” or informational booklet, too. You want to be sure that your instructions are clear, complete, and useful for your intended readers. You might also need to get the approval of your company’s legal department before publication, too–corporate attorneys and personnel departments are often concerned about employment issues, trademarks, and all sorts of consumer information that may cause legal issues in the future.

A business document writing kit is perfect for assembling any kind of Word document. Using the included Wizard software, you simply pick the templates you want and fill them in, and then let the assembly software do the page numbering and create a table of contents for you, as well as take care of the cover page and any appendices. A pre-designed document writing kit handles the layout and design of your manual, so getting started with a kit not only helps you write like a professional, but also makes your finished work look professional, too.

Your final manual or handbook can easily be printed and bound, or transformed into a PDF file to send via email or read on any electronic device. You can even use various tools available on the Internet to translate your masterpiece into an e-book for use with Kindle or other electronic devices.

You’ll find that using a pre-designed document writing kit is great for producing and organizing any kind of document. It’s a powerful addition to your arsenal of office tools.
