There sure is a lot of difference in writing styles amongst online article writers. In fact, there is a lot of difference in writing styles between those who write on different topics. Take those who write on self-help subjects, personal coaching, or creative endeavors and pit those styles against folks who write on industry topics. They are so dissimilar sometimes that they appear to be almost a different language, and indeed, each uses its own buzz-words that mean different things to all of us readers. Okay so, let’s talk about how to create informational articles on industrial and mechanical subjects shall we for a moment?
When creating articles in this category for the online venue you must remember who your audience is. These are folks out in the real world, not academics, and they aren’t exactly interested in your flowery journalistic writing style. They want the facts, they want to know the information, and they’d like to get it in a; who, what, when, where, and how much format. It is okay to use the industry buzzwords, but don’t overdo it. Realize too, there is a big difference between white paper case studies, and simple online articles which explain how to do something, or an opinion about the future of the industry or current events.
If you are having trouble writing articles in this category maybe you should pick up some trade journals in your industry and get an idea of how things are done and the writing styles which are used. Additionally, I can tell you that there is a big difference between someone writing from an entrepreneurial can-do spirit, than someone writing from a suit and tie consulting point of view. Either type of writing style will work, but the former works better than the latter. How would I know this? Well, formerly I was in the car washing sector and I’ve also written hundreds of articles on industrial and mechanical topics.
About the worst thing you can do is waste someone’s time online, these types of readers will click on your article based on the title’s promise to deliver content and information. If you think you are going to trick them into reading your article and later clicking on the link at the bottom to come to your website you are mistaken. You have to give them real meat in the article, these are not teenagers playing around on Facebook, these are real folks getting the job done in industry. Don’t waste their time, because they would never waste yours. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
