Writing content that ranks and converts is one of the greatest challenges for new online marketers. I struggled with it for many months before I finally got confident enough to really produce content that I was happy with.

The main things that helped me improve my writing was to practice. Lots of what I produced back in the day was very mediocre, but you can’t achieve a 5-minute mile without running plenty of 8-minute miles, right?

Many new affiliate marketers people are completely lost when it comes to how to write a basic article for their webiste. I agree. It was tough for me when I got started as well.

So today I want to teach you the very basic foundation of how I learned to write, and how you can write a 500 word article relatively easily. The minimum word count for the content you post to your website should be 1000 words, so just double what this training shows.

The great part about this method of writing for newbies is that it gives you a clear set of parameters, so you don’t have to focus too much on “being creative”.

Thank you Nathaniell.......this was a really beneficial post. I've been having a terrible time crafting article ideas, into sensible and uncomplicated articles. This post is very good teaching for me and I have bookmarked it, as well as printed it out. My common sense viewpoint is if it works for you, it'll work for me.

Very interesting nathaniell.

It is simple, straight to the point and takes away the fear that comes with writing.

I can relate to this as a language teacher. Whenever I tell my students that we are writing a 500 word essay their first reaction is 'What on earth shall we do to have 500 words!"

But by the time I start breaking the process down, they realize it possible. Strange enough the end result is always amazing. That is holding them down to 500 words and not more. When they find the topic interesting, they always want go beyond that.

Thx for that "Easy Way" to write a 500 word article, awesome actually. Reminds me of a strategy I once learned and had long forgotten... "Tell em what your going to tell em, tell em, tell em what you told em." There is definitely some comfort in a structured approach as a fall back or simply as a go-to.

Thx Again Nathaniell

Wow Nathaniel, this is an awesome lesson and I have marked it as a favourite!

It really breaks down the process if creating an article. Before reading this I would probably have dived right in without a structure.

However, having a structure really does make it easier to write 500 words by taking it in bite sized chunks!

You are a born teacher Nathaniell, this is a fantastic post.

Nathaneil, this tutorial was really informative to me. Thank you so much also for the embedded/linked articles by kyle. Being such a newbie on the whole SEO ranking & conversion rates concept, this really opened a valuable aspect to my thinking regime relative to content readiness. Once again just simply rad.
