Road to Success


When you’re traveling across country, in unfamiliar territory, you watch for road signs to help you navigate to your destination.

Article writing has these signs too; however, they aren’t your typical roadmaps or highway markers.  If they were, these milestones would likely include signs like “Patience at Next Right” to remind you that success often requires endurance.  If you find yourself searching for a sign to help you navigate out of writing stale content, “Detour Ahead to Avoid Repetitive Content” is just on the horizon.

Whether it’s lack of time or loss of momentum, satisfaction may settle in.  This may include a lack of proofreading, not fact-checking, and using disreputable shortcuts.  The attitude of “it’s good enough,” is the number 1 credibility and success killer.  You don’t need to write earth-shattering content that could win a Nobel Prize, but you should enjoy what you do – readers can sense it.

Strive to be engaged.  Find those areas of your curiosity that you are passionate about or fascinate you.  Stay up-to-date and maintain your authority in your curiosity by getting involved: Excavate deeper into issues to find the truth, kindle debate with peers in your area of interest, and ask your audience questions.  Continue building on your experience and cultivate more distinctive insight.  If you’re affianced, your readers will be too.

Having patience can be tough.  Everyone would like success instantly; however, it rarely works that way.  A musician practices.  An athlete trains.  An author writes.  The best way to build your credibility platform and magnify your exposure is to keep writing and keep developing those article writing skills to reach and engage your audience.

Set aside time to write and then dedicate your full attention to the task to take advantage of your time.  Categorize your ideas and then begin.  Your style and skills are a work in progress – keep refining, keep building, and keep up your energy.  Have patience with your success is just around the corner.

Are your articles related to your audience? Writing articles irrelevant to readers is like moving quickly in determined way through a pedestrian crosswalk.

Ask yourself: “So what?” with each article.  Every one of your articles should matter and sway someone else positively.  Leave your ego at the door and reread what you’ve written to consider how your audience will approach the topic.

Also, consider the keywords you are using.  Integrate keywords naturally, so your articles read fluidly and reach your audience.

If you find yourself writing and rewriting the same theme, your readers will view you as a one trick pony.

Conquer this by expanding your interest and then discovering what information your audience wants.  Advance topics from different point of view and consider exploring areas you’ve always been curious about to expand your expertise.  Either way, you will discover you have a lot more to say than you initially thought.

Expand your horizons by broadening your interests and then narrow down areas of your interest in your articles to target specific sections of your audience.  Keep up with your reader’s interests!  Write fresh articles based on new events in your interest to keep your articles relevant to your readers.

As you round your next turn in your article writing efforts, remember this: You can’t say you’re an expert on horses just because you’ve rode a horse once.  Success takes practice, expansion, and respect for yourself and your audience.  Use these tips if you’re feeling a little complacent, losing patience, letting your ego lead, or find yourself stuck in a topic.  Leave these obstacles in the dust and get on the road to success.
