You may be surprised to learn that there is a huge market for article writing, both in print and online. But the truth is that there are plenty of outlets that need more content than they can write on their own—so they turn to experts in their respective fields for article writing. Those experts then get publicity and become a known authority in their field. It’s no surprise, then, that this kind of exposure often turns into sales.
So, what exactly does article writing entail? Well, unless you’re trained as a writer, it often means hiring someone to act as a ghostwriter. The ghostwriter's role is to pick your brain, write the article for you and then give you credit (this is known as a byline).
Before you get started, it's a good idea to really understand the process of article writing. Thankfully, the ghostwriter of your article writing project should make the process easy on you, taking you through a few simple steps. First, you need to determine your subject matter. This should be something that you are, in fact, an expert in. But it can cover a huge range of areas, from accounting to advertising, from restaurants to retail.
Of course, then you need to whittle down the subject of your article to a specific topic and article form. This could be a news story about something new that your company is doing; it could be a human interest story told in a narrative form; it could be a case study about a success story; or it could take the form of a “how to” or “top tips” article.
It is important to remember that the essence of any article writing project is the content; there has to be some meat to the article—whether it gives a fresh perspective, something newsworthy, great insights or useful tips.
From there, your article writing project is mostly in your ghostwriter’s hands, and your ghostwriter needs to do his or her homework. This means educating himself or herself on the topic at hand. Often this means reading relevant articles and marketing materials. And it certainly means interviewing the expert—otherwise known as you.
The ghostwriter then needs to work his or her magic to make you sound like the expert that you are. Thankfully for you, you do not need to worry about how to make the article sound good, whether it is well-worded, if it flows easily or is grammatically correct. That, of course, is the job of the ghostwriter.
Finally, it’s time for you to review the article writing project. Just make sure it reflects your expertise and sounds like you. And off you go with your bylined article!
