Fwd: Fwd: [EzineArticles Training] Create Your Content and Beat Writers Block: Top 7 Tips Training Series: An Introduction to Article Writing

Here are some helpful tips to help you source content for new

1. Old Ezine Articles:  This includes your archives
  for articles that you have sent your ezine from
  the past 10+ years.  If you've created multiple
  articles for each email newsletter issue, we
  recommend that you break your old ezine articles
  into single article chunks rather than multi-
  topic articles. If you have large ezine
  articles from your email newsletter archive,
  consider breaking them down into 250-300 word
  chunks rather than 1,000-3,000 word articles.

2. Old Original Forum Posts:  If you've been on the
  internet for some time, there is a good chance
  you belong to a few forums that you might call
  yourself a "resident expert" on.  All of your
  old forum posts that are greater than 250 words
  in length will make great new articles that you
  can put into distribution to create more traffic
  and sales for your business, and enhance your

3. Old Blog Posts:  The whole point of blogging,
  besides posting frequently, is that you can
  easily syndicate your blog for others to read
  via the RSS reader of their choice.  Because of
  the syndication orientation of blogging, your
  blog posts that read greater than 250 words make
  great articles that you can slap on a longer
  title, add a resource box that pitches your blog
  website and put a fast 250+ articles into
  immediate distribution.

4. Out of Date Books:  Are you the author of a book
  no longer in print? If you own the copyrights to
  it, this is an excellent place to create
  hundreds of quality articles with just a short
  period of editing.

5. Current e-Books:  Take 10%-20% of your hottest
  selling ebooks and flip into articles designed
  to entice your reader into wanting the complete
  ebook.  You still need to deliver real content
  value here and not get skimpy or tease them with
  "what they could learn if they bought your
  ebook."  Keep the articles short, with
  bulleted or small numbered lists.

6. Top 10 or Top 7 Articles:  Everyone likes
  content they can read very fast.  Why not create
  top 10 lists (or any number of "Top" things)
  related to your niche area of expertise.  To
  begin, just create a headline such as "Top 7
  Leaders Strategies For Newbie Managers" and
  then number the list from 1-7. Come up with a
  sub-headline for each tip and then do (1)
  paragraph describing the tip. You'll find these
  are easy to produce and crank out 5-10 of them
  per day.

7. Keyword Research: Google Suggest
  or any keyword research tool can discover topics
  that people are currently searching for that are
  related to your expertise. Use this as a
  springboard to launch another 25 articles that
  are 250-450 words, each related to answering or
  providing short tips on how to solve or get more
  out of the keywords they searched for.

  Example: "Yoga" when entered into Google Suggest
  tells me that I should write articles about
  "Yoga Journals or Journaling" and about proper
  form or different types of "Yoga Poses."
