What's Your Angle?

By Kristi Sayles


So how can you make your article worth reading? It's all about
the ANGLE...

You are about to write an article. Your reasons are your own.
Maybe it's a promotional article to gain publicity. Maybe it's
a contribution to a company newsletter or journal. Maybe you
just want to write articles for fame, fortune, or both...

No matter why you're writing an article, it's your
responsibility to make it interesting.

So how can you make your article worth reading? It's all about
the ANGLE.

First pick your topic. For example, let's say your topic is
something that many people may find themselves yawning about.
We hear a lot about diet pills. How can you "spice up" your
topic? You need an angle!

Then you need to decide what aspect of the thing you want to
write about. Are you selling diet pills? Lots of people are.
Is there anything new or particular interesting in the world
of diet pills that people are interested in that you know
about? Is it possible to buy pills that actually make you lose
weight while sleeping? Do you have the inside scoop on how the
average guy or gal can stay at home and make money selling
diet pills? Your job is to do the research, use some
creativity, and come up with several different angles. Let's
take a look at some popular article types:

1. THE HOW-TO

People love how-to articles! They lead the reader step-by-step
through how to accomplish their goals. They also sometimes
offer resources the reader can contact for more information.

What expertise do YOU have that you could share? Turn that
subject into an interesting how-to article. A few examples:
How To Get Free Publicity for Your Website, How To Convince
People To Join You In Joint Ventures, and How To Make Money
With Your Computer.

Think of the titles that you could write about. Everybody
knows something that they can share with others. Think about
your profession or your hobbies. What are you really good at?
Someone out there could use your knowledge.

2. THE MINI CASE STUDY

Raise a provocative question and then answer it with three or
four real-life examples. Example: For an article titled,"Can A
Stay-At-Home Mom Really Make Good Money?" You could begin with
a few stats on how today"s women are making fortunes without
having to leave home. Then you could feature a few real cases,
each with different outcomes to show all sides of the issue.
Forums are excellent sources of information and interviews no
matter what your topic.

You could use one similar to the essay in my "Instant Essay
Creator." It is called "Should School Uniforms Be Mandatory?"
This was based on an actual survey of high school
administrators that have mandated school uniforms and swear by
them.


3. THE SURPRISE

"Amazing New Product Claims To Erase The Signs Of Aging!"

You hook the reader by getting him interested in this
revolutionary idea. For example, an anti-wrinkle cream. The
cream is becoming famous because of its claims to allow anyone
to erase the signs of aging caused by too much sun.
This is ideal to use when you're discussing the drawbacks of a
new practice or method that"s controversial right now. As the
reader, you get all excited, thinking you"ve discovered an
incredible new product. But the article reveals, point by
point, that too much sun exposure is unsafe and that
intelligent people will not just throw caution to the winds
and risk getting skin cancer. They will purchase "Super
Sunscreen Deluxe" from the given website! Now that's
marketing!

4. THE TREND

Whenever a trend sweeps the nation, you'll suddenly see dozens
of articles covering the topic. From the latest skirt length
to the latest exercise gimmick. People want to know all about
these trends - their origins, benefits, and limitations.

5. THE STUDY

These articles report the results of a study or survey. If you
do a bit of research, you can probably dig up a recent study
on which you can base your article. Examples: "More Couples
Admitting to Have Met Online," "Religious People Are Happier
Than Others," or "Most People Prefer Dogs To Cats."

Now that you've gotten the idea, you should be writing!

Humor Spot

Great Writer
There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his
desire to become a great writer.
When asked to define "great" he said, "I want to write stuff
that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react
to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them
scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!"

He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.
