Increase Article Production: Writing Article Sets

Writing articles is fun, but it can be even more rewarding when you learn how to produce more in less time.

Article Sets Defined: A "set of articles" is anytime you produce 2 or more articles at a time.

Types of Article Sets:

1. Article sets by topic or sub-topic.

Example: If you were writing about racquetball as your topic, you could make a plan to write 2 articles on racquetball nutrition, 4 articles that go into detail about each of the different color of racquet balls on the market and what they mean, and a 10-pack of articles on forehand or backhand drills.

2. Article sets by style of writing.

Example: One style might be all bullet points, another lists of things, another is a Q&A approach, another might be conversational or discussion of issues.

Note: Each type of writing is best when done in sets of the same style.

3. Accidental article sets.

Example: Your target is to produce (2) articles that are 400 words each. While getting started, you get on a roll and accidentally produce a fantastic 800 word article. Break the article in half, give the other half a new title and you have an instant article set ... even if it was created by accident.

4. Article sets based on customer or prospect frequently asked questions.

Example: Customers or prospects are always asking questions. Tune into them, group them by topic, and then hammer out some article sets that answer each question. Using the racquetball topic, you might have 7 questions from your audience on how to prepare for a tournament. Each of them makes excellent article topics.

The next edition of the EzineArticles Training Series: An Introduction to Article Writing and Marketing will offer the secrets to managing multiple topics.
