What are the Most Important Elements for Writing Content for the Internet?

By Carl Mortimer

First – Avoid Writer’s Block.
The ability to write is not inherent in everyone. If you are sitting at your computer and ready to write but your brain is empty, or your thoughts are so scattered you cannot concentrate, you are one of those individuals that could use assistance in writing. Writer’s block will be a curse that you will not be able to get over without help from the experts.

This writer’s block curse can be eliminated from your writing if you take advantage of the knowledge others have and are ready to provide to you. That is where the phrase been there done that comes into play.

There are many resources on the internet that will assist you in learning how to write articles, business letters, e-books, and many other type of writing. The trick is to learn how to write in such a way that your product will be the most profitable to you.

Second – Improve Your Informational Data Base.
When you are attempting to write for profit is it wise to improve your information data base. What does that mean? In order to improve your information data base and write for profit it is imperative that you avail yourself of the experience and knowledge of those individuals who have tried and failed, and then tried again and again, till they succeed.

This is not to say that everyone who tries over and over will succeed. The element of education must be included in each try until you finally get it right. You may be able to prepare an article that many people will enjoy reading; but, have you prepared your product in such a way to convince the reader to take an action that will provide you with income?

One of the biggest assets you can have for writing is to realize that no matter how good you are at writing the experience and knowledge of others can always be of a benefit to you. There are many aspects to writing and I do not believe it is possible for any one person to possess the knowledge required to produce and publish products that will allow you to earn money on the internet.

Third – Maximize Income By Improving Your Product.
Writing may come easy to you; however, writing to provide the reader the enjoyment of reading is not the same as writing for profit. You are working with 26 letters that can be combined into an unknown number of words. How you present these words to the reader will determine your success or failure at what you are attempting.

Here's a website that has several resources and links all dedicated to writing content and how to make money from it.You can try many different approaches and test your articles to see if you can discover the secrets involved in profitable writing. Taking this approach of trying it on your own could take a very long time and in the end prove fatal to your success. You can improve your success at writing for profit if you accept the experience of others as a necessary part of your product preparation.

There are many products available and depending on your needs, these products can be relatively inexpensive compared with what you can earn by improving your writing. The biggest asset you can have is to realize that no matter how well you write there is always room for improvement.

I have presented three elements of learning how to write for profit. Isn’t it about time you take advantage of the knowledge of others that have tried and succeeded to reach your goal of earning money on the internet?

Please take a moment to go to my profile, add me as a friend, and ask me any questions about writing web content. I also have a free web site dedicated to presenting you with links to various sites that provide products to improve your writing for profit and how to increase web traffic through viral marketing. If you are looking to market your business or product, then I highly recommend checking this marketing system out.Thanks Carl for this article and insight.

A for those of you who have heard of Natalie Regoli the CEO of StartUpBiz.Com they had this comment to add:

Comment by, COO This is what we know that works:

1) Keep it short and break it up into bite size chunks
-Your blog is a perfect example
-People on the internet have a short attention span

2) Do not write a blog about your product or service
-Your product should be an example
-Write about topics within your industry

3) Enagage the reader
-Asking a question or opinion will get your blog read
-The answers will add to your content and make your blog better

Twitter Viral Marketing Strategies

Here's a great article from Naomi Trower that will help you discover how to use Twitter to propel your marketing to go viral. Twitter me!

Oh Twitter how I love thee! Let me count the ways…Although you might not hear those exact words said very often online, you know it’s true when you login to your Twitter account or visit someone’s blog.

The question posed by Twitter, “What are you doing?” has become almost as popular as AOL’s “You’ve got mail.” So much so that it has even caught the eye of offline news mediums such as USA Today, CNN, and ABC. This helps to make the application popular all on its own.

Twitter, twitter, twitter...Everyone is asking What is Twitter? How do you use it?

I've heard people say that they signed up but didn't catch on to it. Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users' updates (otherwise known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.

Many people use this for fun to meet new people, some use Twitter to get traffic to their blogs or websites and some use Twitter to gain more knowledge from well known experts in a certain field.

Here are some Twitter tips that I implement that brings me new followers and customers every day.

1. Post Some Interesting Things Going on In Your Life - people are interested in learning more about you as a person.

2. Target your market by searching for your niche area - find and follow people of interest that you can learn and grow from in your niche market.

3. Join Professional Social Networking Sites - find the Twitter groups and write a blurb about yourself. People that are interested will follow you.

4. Post a question with a poll - of course your poll will be on your website or blog but announce on Twitter that you have a poll.

5. Ask for help or direction in an area where you need clarification - people love to share their experience and knowledge to help others.

6. Don't just post tweets, get involved with conversations - it may seem awkward at times but join in and respond to tweets. The more involved you are, the more friends that you will establish.

7. Review your followers and decide if you want to follow them back - some people may unfollow you if they feel you aren't responsive or engaged. You don't have to follow everyone but it's a great idea to follow the ones that you feel would be a great asset to your knowledge base.

8. Sign up for TweetLater to help with automation - you can set it up where an instant thank you message is sent to all of your followers.

9. Post your Twitter link in your social networking sites like, Myspace, Facebook (has an application that automatically shows all of your Twitter updates), LinkedIn, etc.

10. Search for a big name/successful person in your niche market - go to their followers list and start following them. Most of these people can be potential customers that are looking for more information. You can follow a max of 2000 people until 2000 people are following YOU. Then you can get past the 2000 mark.

Thanks for this post Naomi and please leave your comments to this blog.
