A Research Template To Rock Your Vessel of Words

Words still constitute the majority of the traffic online. For that, text will be around for a long time despite video and pictures being more prominent nowadays. Furthermore, for each blog, the unique voice which shares their thoughts, values and features will use text much more than images to convey themselves. Let me demonstrate this example through the commenting form.

Comment or Contact FormWhen you comment everyday on your fellow blogger’s site, what options are you given? You have the fields which asks for your name, e-mail address, URL and comment. It doesn’t say, upload a picture to share your thoughts. Well that’s besides your avatar. Until the day text no longer is relevant, we’re pretty much stuck with it and that might be for a long time.

So when I thought about writing content today, in particular, regurgitating content, I took into account how words are important towards communicating effectively online. Especially now that the pursuit of writing at least 5+ articles a day is on the radar, it is crucial to learn how to break down concepts and weave them into your own voice.

Sure copying and pasting can be done but do you want to litter the internet with thoughts that has already been seen and heard over the blogosphere? Furthermore duplicate content? If you can’t convey to your audience what you mean without sounding like a copy cat, then it’s best to start practicing the art of researching productively. This will help you down the line when you’re attempting article marketing.

The recent training with Helium is a very good example of why this is necessary.

How To Put It All Together

Writing on the web isn’t like writing a school paper where you’re compiling your thoughts through the o’l essay form. The days of looking through an encyclopedia to copy facts to quote from and cite is reserved for grades. Therefore, the message you present on your blog, article or even comment has to be much more dynamic than that. Down the line, you have to build some type of working template to constantly crank out those valuable insights.

Good thing you’re here because I want to share with you how that can be done. Through 4 simple steps, anything you want to write about can be whipped up and reserved as a swipe file for later. This is especially effective if you want to build backlinks in the future because no content is worthy without at least one relevant point. So here are some ways which you can rock the information you find.

Taking Notes In Fragments

Oftentimes, what you read will have strong keywords stand out. Take note of this because here is where your starting point to build back the main idea of your new article begins. As you continue to collect information on that keyword, find action phrases to connect together more specific thoughts. Many will tell you that this is the long tail of niche marketing. Furthermore, consider the comment section to add more incentives to your research.

Readers will oftentimes give valuable feedback that can jump start the main idea into another direction or even reference a link to which you can follow. There’s a slew of articles waiting for you to write about here. Make the most of your research and highlight the commentators who make it a point to stand out. They will definitely give you some really good gems to work with.

Start Building Titles

Once you’ve collected your great notes, it’s time to add some buzz to it. Here’s part of the process where you get to be creative and imagine the wicked ways which you can provoke emotions. After all, who’s going to click through and read an article you wrote with a title like ‘A Research Template For You To Use’?

Implementing ‘rock’ and ‘vessel’, I instilled an action verb followed by a descriptive noun to provide the reader with something to ride on. I started off with ‘You Are A Vessel of Words So Rock It’. Then as the article fleshed out, it seemed necessary to insert more specifics. Point here is, would you read something with the title you came up with? If your answer is yes, then congratulations, you’ve confirmed the first step of reading a worthy article.

Flesh Out Your Thoughts

Now that you’ve created your awesome title, you want to think about the ways which you can position your article. Taking the fragment of notes you’ve collected are there any benefits, downsides, point which needs to be stressed on or described in depth? The possibilities here are endless but write first and foremost what would provoke you. As I find that the more interested in the information I find, the better I am to flow naturally in voice.

This is especially essential if your goal is to speak to the reader on a mono to mono tone. Nothing beats an article which puts to good use a great conversation. The best part is when you can instill a human aspect to which a complex concept needs to be taken apart, you’ll find the ‘friend‘ in you standing out. Furthermore, using less of I and more of youhelps.

Don’t Over Revise

The first draft always contains the main element of surprise through which revision can strip away. In fact, if you’re not careful you can change the direction of your article. This is really daunting and much more time-consuming if you have to rewrite your content over. To prevent this from happening, sometimes you need to come back to the article at a later time. Take a short break to grab something to drink, cleanse the writing palate and look over your work again with a more critical eye.

Question the points you’ve made. Are you describing them effectively or are you still leaving something out? Add or take away any irrelevant thoughts which can distract the reader from focusing on the main idea of your article. Moreover, retaining the voice that makes the human part of conversing in humor or controversy eases the revision process. Think of it as talking to yourself. Did you enjoyed the way the article engaged you? Make it an effort to not become boring.
