Here is a simple, yet very effective outline for writing your article:
1. Open – Address the problem and tell them what solution you will provide. Here is an example:
“Do you sometimes feel like life is controlling you instead of you controlling it?
Like there is never enough time to get it all done, and with no end in sight?
The evolution of technology is supposed to make things easier and faster,
but instead we just add more to our already overflowing plates. Then at the end of the day, we plop down with barely enough energy to put up our feet knowing that tomorrow brings more of the same – scratching things off a never ending
‘to do’ list.
If this sounds like you, and you are ready for a change, here are 5 simple strategies you can implement right away so your ‘to do’ list gets complete, you feel ahead of the game, and you have energy and enthusiasm at the end of your day:”
1. Body – Provide the solution by sharing a paragraph or two about each of the 5 tips. Number or bulletize your tips.
2. Close – Sum up your article and give a call to action. Here is an example of a close:
“By implementing these 5 tips you will notice a dramatic difference in your stress level, energy level and happiness level. Afterall, today’s technology and latest gadgets are designed to make life easier, not to add more things to your already
overcrowded plate. So make a conscious effort not to replace one completed task with more ‘to dos’.”
3. Bio – Add a paragraph about yourself, a a link to your website, and contact information.
4. Title – Give it a catchy title, and you are good to go. Often times when you are writing, your title will magically appear.
5. Call to Action – You may want to add a simple call to action that gives people another resource or tells them how they can engage with you further.
