- Use short paragraphs. When the paragraph are very long, the words get jumbled in the mind of the reader just looking at it and it can get quite confusing and too much of a hard work to read. The reader will just quickly disregard the paragraph and move on to much easier to read articles that are good to look at as well as read. Paragraphs can be a single sentence, sometimes even a single word!
- Make use of numbers or bullets. As each point is stressed out, numbers and bullets can quickly make the main idea easy to remember and digest. As each point, tip, guide or method is started with a bullet or point, readers will know that this is where the tips start and getting emphasized. Format your bullets and numbers with indentations so that your article won’t look like a single block of square paragraphs. Add a little bit of flair to your articles shape.
- Use sub-headings to sub-divide your paragraphs in the page. Doing this will break each point into sections but still would be incorporated into one whole article. It would also be easy for the reader to move on from one point to another; the transition would be smooth and easy. You will never lose your readers’ attention as well as the point and direction to where the article is pointing.
- Provide a good attention-grabbing title or header. If your title can entice a person’s curiosity you’re already halfway in getting a person to read your article. Use statements and questions that make use of keywords that people are looking for. Provide titles or headers that describe your articles content but should also be short and concise.
For example, use titles like “Tips on making her want you more”, or “How to make her swoon and blush”. You could also use titles that can command people, for example, “Make her yours in six easy ways”. These types of titles reach out to a persons’ emotions and makes them interested.
- Keep them interested from the start to the finish. From your opening paragraph, use real life situations that can be adopted by the reader. Use good descriptions and metaphors to drive in your point, just don’t over do it. Driving your examples with graphic metaphors and even photos would make it easy for them to imagine what you are talking about. Making the experience pleasurable and enjoyable for them.
- Use figures when necessary and not just ordinary and insipid statements. Using specific facts and figures can heighten your article because it makes it authoritative. But do not make it too formal, it should be light and easy and flowing naturally. Like a friendly teacher having a little chat with an eager student.
