ARTICLE WRITING FORMULA, MY 3 PRINCIPLES TO MAKE A GREAT SELLER & MORE…
All about writing, to help, for fun or to offer ANY kind of WRITING TIPS/Tricks whatsoever. LAZY SKIM READERS NEED NOT APPLY or just to amuse others with words.
Now naturally, this isn’t going to be traffic popular since not everyone is into writing… In fact people struggle to read these days, so writing won’t interest many people either (it’s probably a bit like too much hard work to many) but I love writing, so, this will be a place where I am willing at least; to help anyone who is having writers block or any other writing-type difficulties (& I am willing to contribute constructively for free in any way I can with any writing needs whatsoever).
Here anyone can throw in anything to do with the playing of words & the idea is that anyone can contribute in any way to either improve on someone else’s comment, gig content, title, poem, statement, paragraph or any other wordy theme, with a view to offering a solution, presenting a problem or just pure & simple playing with words imaginatively for the pleasure of it.
This thread is principally to help others & to share any "What to write or what not to write tips."
I come to this forum for my breaks (breaking away from serious writing to a more relaxed writing setting). Sometimes I get so desperate to write; I come here to find any excuse to write something for the sake of writing. Therefore this thread (hopefully) will give me another sense of purpose & keep me busy.
I have one fundamental writing tip for you in my 2nd principle (see below) followed by my ever-growing writing tips in the 1st comment (made by me):
To kick off here’s MY THREE PRINCIPLES TO BECOME A BEST GIG SELLER:
- Find your niche that you are passionate about, very interested in, can perform exceptionally well at, are gifted with, that is unique, that you can apply your own unique characteristics to, can become an authority in or just plain have the means, scope and ability to perform & deliver. DO NOT EVER set unrealistic delivery times to your gig even if someone else offers the same gig quicker, add an extra day if you are unsure or need to factor in unforeseen circumstances.
Think about this! If you had a queue of buyers you would have to adjust delivery times anyway, so it doesn’t necessarily matter to them when it is delivered (within reason) only that it is delivered but well (RELIABILITY & quality matter, get this wrong & you may as well stop using Fiverr OR Fiverr gig buyers will stop using you). Think ORIGINALITY, what can you offer that others do not.
Of course people are obsessed with shortening their delivery times as much as possible because they are busy chasing money. Get it wrong just a few times & you will suffer in your ratings. I say make buyers pay for the privilege of quick delivery once you have earned gig extra ability. Otherwise returning customers will demand the same service constantly but you may have got fed up with the mad pace after a short while.
- Treat & think of customers like they were priceless. Engage with them, develop trust, bond with them, make them feel special, respond to their review/comments as in an individual sense (not as a dull boring automated repetitive response), as soon as they order greet them with a welcome message & let them know you are on the case.
Answer all messages & keep checking your Fiverr messages & activities EVERY day… COMMUNICATION is king/queen & everything that matters (in life generically too). Remember that any potential buyers will be reading your reviews including your response so that may be all that they can go on to work out what you’re like as a person. First impressions count.
- Over-deliver: Give them much more than they expect. If you are a writer increase the word count; if you deliver traffic to websites/offers then send them traffic in excess of what was promised; if you deliver digital products throw in some jaw dropping bonuses. Before you deliver let them view the finished piece for their input… Buyers like to feel that they are a part of what’s being created/delivered and more importantly; if there is absolutely any reason that could cause you to get a bad review could possibly be smoothed out beforehand (quality & value). This would include bonuses & if you would prefer to call it deliver extra value (rather than over-deliver) that’s fine too… Only I assume your gig either delivers quality & value or it doesn’t (& both really are a minimum requirement).
Apply these three principles & I guarantee you will succeed (but I stress that this is only possible if you are determined enough, patient enough & willing… It is a learning curb, so we can learn from our mistakes [mistakes are good because that’s the only way we can improve & move on] and make those effective improvements as we go).
HOW TO WRITE AN ARTICLE
There are many different techniques but this one is up there with the best.
There are 4 main parts to an article, The Title, The Introduction, the main body of content and a conclusion.
The title needs to be attention grabbing
“How To Shed 1 Stone in Weight in 1 Week Without Ever Feeling Hungry.”
This is a very important part of your article; it has to be a great opener to attract the reader’s attention, so that they have to keep reading & are hungry for more. If your introduction fails to deliver, no one is going to bother to read the rest of the article if it is dull, boring and doesn’t grab the reader’s attention.
You could start with something like
“If you want to lose those pounds without ever feeling hungry then read on.”
Ideally (but none of this is fixed rule) you would have maybe 3-4 main points (covered in the article content) and in which case here you could give a brief overview of all the things to be discussed in the article.
Give them an idea what they will learn or achieve by reading this post. This is the bait, the reader must remain interested or they won’t read any further. In this case you might emphasise the point that by reading this post they’ll be able to squeeze into their skinny sister’s trendy cloths within one week (naturally this is not going to be possible & highly unlikely if the reader is a normal male [although some may be interesting in cross-dressing]).
Main Body of Content
For each of your 3-4 (or whatever number of points) your article covers, you would give a general account of the main point. You would also make a specific statement of the main point followed by several pieces of information that backs up the specific statement. This you would do to each and every main point covered in this article.
Here you would only include ever include subject matter already covered but never introduce a new subject/topic that wasn’t included in the main body of content. Make a sweeping statement perhaps & recap all the points already covered. You should really emphasise on what the reader can now do with the information they have read & remind them then what they have learned, why this is beneficial to them.
[Then you’ll need a resource box at the end informing the reader the benefits of following the link to your website/offer or whatever the link points towards}
