Article marketing can be very powerful and extremely effective in generating traffic to your blog and producing sales as well, but article marketing can also take many different forms, such as, Blogging, submission to article sharing websites, email marketing and also writing reports.

These are all good examples of article marketing.

There are many well-known internet marketers who started their online businesses in exactly that way. They simply started with article marketing, found a target market and an audience who trusted them, then continued on to create their own products and build their online internet marketing empires, and these are internet marketers who you would know, especially if you’ve been online for any length of time, and I believe if it can happen for them, it can happen for you too.

However, if you are not a writer by nature, just how do you write a useful and informative article, because after all that’s what your readers are looking for?

Well, if you read on you’ll find the answer here!

So, what’s the the formula that I use to write articles?

So now, follow along with me as I reveal this simple step by step process to article writing. To start,  you are going to write a “how to article” as this is the best sort of article to write as it gives the reader generally three to five steps to follow in order to accomplish a given task, a bit like a recipe!

If you can teach your children to make a cup of tea, or a piece of toast, then you can do this with very little trouble. You just need some practice. You see, When you teach kids how to do things, the best way for them to learn it quickly and with as little confusion as possible, is to break the task down into tiny steps, (baby steps if you like), and then make sure each baby step is clear and easy to implement, and that is exactly what you will be doing here.

So you need to bear in mind something you can tell your reader to do with three to five simple steps. Don’t beat yourself up right now though if you can’t think of something now, just make sure you come when you have your article writing idea, and you really don’t need to worry because I will be writing another article soon when I will share with you a tactic you can use to generate endless article ideas.

So, lets begin!

Each article you write should have following structure. Let’s look at the structure first, and then I will talk for a short while about each bullet point!
