Eight Tips for Ezine Writers

Have you ever wondered why Ezine Articles have become

one of the most effective marketing techniques on the


The reason is quite simple.

People very rarely go online looking for something to buy. They go online looking for information – free information.

They want to be educated, entertained and informed. And the best way to do that is to write free Articles for Newsletters.

At the bottom of your Article is your 4- or 5-line Resource Box. That’s what turns your Article into one of the most powerful marketing techniques on the Web.

Here are eight tips to help you write your Articles

and get them published.

(1) Never allow yourself to think that you’ve run out of ideas. Instead, have the opposite thought: that there are more ideas than you could possibly write about. I heard someone saying recently (with regard to Ezine Articles) that everything that could possibly be written about has already been written about. Nonsense! The Internet is evolving so fast that even

if you wrote a new Article every day, you still couldn’t keep up.

(2) The Golden Rule of Five. Keep your Article titles

short – no more than five words. Ezine Editors love

short titles (they fit into the subject field of an


(3) Keep your paragraphs short – no more than 3

sentences. It’s much harder to read a computer screen

than a printed page – so make it easy for your


(4) Make sure your Article flows properly. The easiest

way to do this is to write down the opening and

closing sentences of each of your paragraphs, then

read what you have. If it makes sense and moves along

nicely, you have an Article that is well organized and

flows properly.

(5) Include a word count at the top of your Article.

This makes it easy for an Ezine Editor to make a quick

decision on whether to use your Article. It also shows

you’ve been thorough in preparing your Article for


(6) Check all the links in your Article before

submitting it. Then include a note that says: ‘All the

links in this Article were checked and verified on

(date)’. Again, this saves time for the Ezine Editor

and demonstrates that you’ve been thorough.

(7) Offer a Free Report in your Resource Box. When

someone reads your Article in an Ezine, they probably

won’t be connected to the Internet. So the challenge

is this: to offer something so interesting and

exciting that they’ll fire up their modem and visit

your website. The best way to do that is to offer a

Free Report.

(8) Put all your Articles on autoresponders and then

create another autoresponder that lists all your

Articles, with an autoresponder address for each

Article (e.g.: all-articles@yourdomain.com). When you

submit your Article to a List or to an Article

Archive, always include a note that says: “For a

complete list of Articles by this author please send a

blank email to: all-articles@yourdomain.com

Remember – Ezine Articles are probably the fastest way

there is of building your presence on the Web and

getting your message in front of a targeted audience.

Happy writing!
