Tips for writing an article 

  1. First and foremost: Keep your reader’s needs and queries in mind. Put yourself in the reader’s shoes and try to answer the reader’s questions not writing diaries.
  2. Text should be >95% unique. Don’t use Ctrl+C & Ctrl+V or Command+C & Command+V method and remember the golden rule. If you steal from one author it’s plagiarism; if you steal from many it’s research 😉. Сheck your content on plagiarism using the following online tools: https://text.ru/, https://content-watch.ru/, plagiarismdetector, or contentyoda.
  3. Keep your text structured and well-organized. Write the post in Google Docs using the Arial font, font size 11. Structure your text with Title (title сase), Headings 1, Headings 2 and Headings 3 (lower case). Use a bullet point list or a numbered list on demand. Highlight the most important sentences making them bold. Keep paragraphs short: no more than 7-10 sentences long. 
  4. Check grammar with grammarly. It doesn’t matter how interesting your text is when there are 5 spelling mistakes in one sentence.
  5. Write no less than 1, 000 words. Feel free to dig into the topic but remain strict to the point with your ideas. Writing each next sentence ask yourself if it matters. And even more important – keep it simple. Write an article imagining that you explain the topic to your younger sister or grandmother. Review the article on simplicity and clarity using e.g. http://www.hemingwayapp.com/.
  6. Feel free to use statistics, infographics, illustrations, breaking news, expert opinions, and quotes. Always refer to the sources. Choose only reputable sources checking the number of its visitors on https://www.similarweb.com. They should strengthen your article, not weaken it.
  7. Do not be repeatable with your messages. Add pictures that illustrate or complement the text but don’t duplicate the information mentioned in the text. 
  8. Keep everything consistent. If you’ve already used double inverted commas or short hyphens, please use double inverted commas or short hyphens across the whole article.
  9. Add the magic of human touch to your article by including thoughts of your company’s experts, influencers’ opinions, or stories from your own experience that are related to the topic. Remember that people don’t do business with companies. People do business with people. Use https://www.helpareporter.com/ to get experts’ comments.
  10. Last but not least: Review your articles a few times and delete all words that are off the point or don’t deliver value to readers. Remember that perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
