Are You Writing For Your Readers To Say “Yes”?

Are you writing for your readers to say yes, or are you writing for them to say no

The very reason why this blog is called persuasive article marketing is because it’s teaching you on the subject of making your articles “persuasive” and, persuasive means that we are making sure that our articles are making our readers to say YES to our message.

Making your readers to say yes to your article is not hard but, if you don’t know these three major tips, you could be wondering why your articles are not getting any traffic and results.

Here are 3 major tips for your readers to say yes to your articles.  If you practice these, your article readership will definitely improve tremendously.

Finding Inspiration Before you Write

Do you ALWAYS know what to write about?  The answer is probably no.  No writer can say that he or she always knows what to write about.  But, if you don’t know what to write about, then, just don’t write at all.  In order to be able to write anything worthwhile for your readers, you need to be inspired about what you are going to write about.

Let’s see what are the tools that you can use to get inspired to write?

1-      Research

Doing some research within your theme or topic is very important.  The more you research and read material about your own niche the more knowledge you can and will accumulate.  The information you read about will basically become a bank of knowledge that you will be able to develop into inspired articles that will make your readers say “yes” to your articles.

As a writer, research is really something that you can’t afford to bypass, because it is the blood line of your inspiration to write.

2-      Walks

This might come as a surprise to you but, taking walks to get inspired to write is an exercise that I practice myself a lot and it works.  However, this method really woks much better if you have done the first step first.

If you have no material in your mind to inspire you, even taking walks might not inspire you much.  If you do, on the other hand, the exercise of walking will bring you great inspiration and ideas to write persuasive articles that will make your readers say yes.

3-      Current events in your life

Another great way to get inspired with your writing is to use your own current events.  What’s going on in your life today?  This will actually bring up the emotion factor into your writing.  Someday we are up someone day we may be down; either way those feelings can help and inspire us to write in such a way that will touch the readers and make them they yes.

As I mentioned in another recent article, emotion is the strongest selling factor and, if you are not using it to your own advantage in your articles, you are losing out and losing readers.

Write in Simple Words

I don’t care about what you are writing about, it could be a review about a Channel perfume, a tutorial about SEO optimization or a College essay, the rules are always the same.

If you really want people to actually sit down in front of your article long enough, you need to use simple words that anyone can understand.  Do not try to sound like the brief of a lawyer and do not try to use fancy words which many people may or may not know the meaning of.

At the risk of sounding redundant, write short sentences and short paragraphs.  Long running sentences often need to be read twice to be fully understood and most online readers won’t give you that chance.  And, Long paragraphs will push your readers away as people are naturally lazy and busy.

On the other hand, when the eyes see easy to read short paragraphs, even if the article is quite long, the brain says OK, I can read this.  This basic rule will make your readers say yes to your articles.

Use Your Sense of Humor

Adding some sense of humor in your writing will definitely help your article.  People respond much better to an article that speaks to them in a relax manner and even make them smile or laugh.

Of course, you might not always have room for sense of humor in everything your write about but, you can always find a way to bring up the human factor, even if it’s not in the form of humor.

As human beings we tend to respond well to true experiences that we can relate to and honesty.  While you can’t always bring humor into your articles all the time, you can always play around with other factors that people are attracted to and make them say yes to your articles every time.

It is really a hard thing to come up with something that can please our readers, I guess, lets just be ourselves, accept criticisms and corrections, in this way, readers will love us for what we are.

Hi Sylviane, Great tips as usual my friend.

I always to keep a sense of humour and write as if i was talking to someone. Kind of picturing them in my head and writing accordingly, but so that everyone can understand it.

I always break my posts up into short paragraphs so as to make it easier to read. I hate it when a blog post is just a mass of words with no white space. I find it really hard to read and 9 times out of 10 will just come away from it altogether.

Thanks for the tips Sylviane,

Back soon my friend,
Barry

Yes, I agree Barry. I hate massive paragraphs as well. It’s so hard to read! No one want to read this type of text.

Hi Sylviane,

Great tips you’ve shared and I like that we were on somewhat on the same page with our recent posts.

I definitely write for my readers and from their responses, I believe they enjoy how I’m able to put myself into each situation. I enjoy writing most about what I learn so I share my own experiences along the way. At times I throw some humor in there when it’s appropriate. I also will throw what upsets me too, I call it my rants.

I am a very simple person so I don’t really know how to write any other way. I have learned to break my paragraphs up more so I believe I’m getting much better at that as time goes on.

Enjoyed this post, thank you for sharing. Now, I’m off to write my next post. Wish me luck!

As a reader I feel that bloggers do their home work thoroughly before publishing posts, they write keeping their readers in mind so there are less chances of readers disagreeing with them. All of us have the right to think differently, all of us have the right to diverse views and blog commenting is one of the best way to express our thoughts, this is also the reason which makes me appreciate bloggers.
