How I Write Articles for Big Companies

How I Write Articles for Big Companies

I make around $200 an hour writing articles and blog posts for websites. Want to know my process?

Here it is:

  1. I Google my topic and read! I make sure to go to only reputable sites for my facts, though. Sites run by the government, universities, zoos and hospitals and the like are a-okay.

  2. Next, I just write. Like, flat-out type. I get all of the facts out of my head and into a Word document.

  3. Once everything is down, I divide it up into sections and order the sections in a way that makes sense.

  4. I give each section a catchy (or informative) heading, then put it in H2 heading format. (The format changes, depending on the site, but H2 is usually the go-to). Adding a heading format helps the article get found by search bots.

  5. Now, it’s time to back up what I say. I add quotes from experts (ProfNet is a great place to find experts) or I link to sites where I got the information. Links will also help your article rank in Google searches.

  6. Finally, it’s time for photos, videos, gifs or any other multimedia experience I can add. People are visual creatures and they love lots of things to look at. I add at least two.

  7. Last, but not least, I go over the post a backwards and forwards to spot any typos, awkward sentences and other things that look totally unprofessional.

That’s it.
