As a content writer you are supposed to produce articles in a hurry for your organisation. Though some experienced content writers in Kolkata know the shortcuts to research well in a short span of time, the newbies in the trade are left helpless. As the clock ticks by their helplessness mounts and they produce articles that are not interesting, not knowledge enriched and neither business oriented. As a content writer first inhibition that you have to shred off is being too creative. You are not writing a piece of literature here, rather you are trying to write something that would benefit a business owner. Giving general information might be good for the first few lines, but after that you have to become business like and get directly to the point.
Then you would have a sad face and ask me: for this purpose a lot of information is required? Well, as content writer you are exposed to the largest library in the world. Internet has information of every sort you are looking for. But the trick is to look in the right places. When writing articles your best friends are the article directories such as Ezine Articles, Article Base, Article Snatch, Buzzle, Go Articles, Article Dashboard, etc. These are some of the well known article directories that you will come across. Article directories are sites that are used by the SEO article submitters to submit their quality articles. There are articles on every subject available in these sites. As they are the best in the league thus the articles posted at these sites need to be of the highest quality.
Now that you know the places where you need to look out for information, it is time to actually start searching for information. Let us try to search for information related to content writing services. We would take a look at result searches in Ezine Articles. As you would see there is a search bar in the home page of the website just below the “Article categories”. We would simply search by content writing services (as we are trying to create an article using this keyword).
Then click on “Search” button placed just beside. A page will open containing a list of many articles. Mind you this is the first page of search results and there may be many other pages full of relevant articles on the topic you have selected to write upon.
Now look through the results and try to find some results that resemble the topic you have at hand. Do not use information in one article as reference for your article as this increases chances of plagiarism. Open two or three relevant articles (which are supported by most browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome) in separate tabs. Read through the information and start writing.
But at times the topics of articles might not be simple. There might be topics that you would not be able to decipher. So in such situations the best place to visit is Wikipedia. It will provide you a basic idea about the business, product or service in layman’s term. Once you have understood the terms you can again repeat the search in article directories with their closest synonyms.
If you do not find enough information in these article directories then search using the Google search engine. Do not forget to add “article” after the keyword when you search for the relevant articles using the search. The command “article” helps search engine show only the pages having articles. This will ease your search using Google.
So research well and write articles that add material to the online marketing campaigns of your clients. Only a happy client can make your career blossom as content writer!
