Here’s a great question about article titles. Read on to discover some great tips you can use for your article titles.

Q: Can you help me with this article title? – From Fairy Tale Expectations to Real Life Beliefs for Young Women – Is it too long? Is it any good? And then what do you think about the article itself?

A: You have a good start to your title. There are a couple of tweaks that will help your article get picked up and use more often. One thing you want to do is to have your key words in the first four words of your title – so if your key word phrase was “relationship advice,” your title could be “Relationship Advice for Young Women – From Fairly Tale Expectations to Real Life Beliefs in Your Relationships.”

Don’t worry about your title being too long. On the internet, the longer the title the better for you since it gives the search engines more words to pick up. You can also use the extra length to include your key words again. Here is a simple formula for your titles — Keywords — Benefits – Keywords

At 900+ words your article is a bit long for the internet – what you could do is break it into three separate articles that could stand alone OR reduce the length of each tip. If you reduce the length of each of the tips, be sure to keep the extra info for other articles and for products such as short reports, ecourses, and ebooks.

You are on your way and I can’t wait to see what is next as you write your next articles!

Tom Antion – Why Publish On Kindle?

Making a Kindle version of your e-book or hard cover version is a must in today’s market.

Amazon is selling 130 Kindle versions to every 100 hardcovers on their site. This is a great opportunity for you to get more sales and more exposure for your books. Kindle versions reach more people in countries where bookstores are rare, giving authors access to emerging markets and a greater reach. Kindle versions are also less expensive not only to print, but to purchase for the customer. This can save on printing costs for the author and Kindle versions are generally 30% less in price than their printed counterparts.

Customers can also purchase more books than they could in past considering the weight and space restrictions on printed books. You may never had in the past a room to store 1000 books, but with Kindle versions you can.

Article Income Questions – What is the Fastest Way to Make Money with My Articles?

Q: What’s the fastest way to create any cash once you have an article or two written?

A: I always love it when I get questions like this one because I can tell you have not bought in to the popular myth that you cannot make money with your articles.

Having said that, I would be remiss not to strongly caution you about something important to your long term success.

It’s going to take many more that just two articles to really make the kind of money and get the kind of response I think you are talking about.

It’s great that you are thinking about how to profit from your articles right here at the beginning. Just keep writing because the higher your article numbers, the higher all your other numbers will be.

One of the quickest ways to profit from your new articles is to turn them into “Action Articles.” An action article is simply one of your articles to which you have added action questions. An action question is a question designed to get your reader to begin to take action right away.

For example, “which tip from this article can you implement right away” is a good action question.

I sell action articles on my sites all day every day for seven dollars. While I will not get rich seven dollars at a time, it is still a source of quick income. Another advantage to action articles is that it is a low priced item that people will spend without much thought at all, and now they have demonstrated buying behavior.

Great Internet Marketing Training

Ilse Wolf visited Tom Antion at the Great Internet Marketing Training Center and here is what she had to say about it.

You must constantly remember to base your humorous material on an important target shared with your intended audience. You get this information from your pre-program questionnaire and other pre-program research.

People
Use people they know in your jokes and stories. Talk about their CEO or supervisor (get permission from these people first). Joke about or insult the CEO of a major competitor, but be careful here. You may want to work for the competitor some day. Always pick BIG targets to
tease. Never pick secretaries, receptionists, or janitors as targets of humor.

Places
Quip about the places they go. Their cafeteria, the bar across the street from their plant, or the crowded highway leading to where they work are all good targets for humor. In Washington, D.C., where I live, everyone jokes about troubles on the Beltway.

Things
Joke about the things that mean something to them. Joke about their new marketing plan, company picnic, new voice-mail system, etc. Just be sure that they are joking about it themselves. The topic might be too hot to tease about.

If you have a general audience and you cannot get specific information, use general humor. Most people are married and have children and experience family conflict. They go to the doctor and dentist. They stand in line at the motor vehicle administration. They deal with financial problems. Joke about any universal problem which your audience can relate to.

Remember, always pick BIG targets. Joke about celebrities, media stars, and athletes that everyone knows. Keep in mind that there is a genuine sports interest in virtually every audience.
The best and safest target to use is the one that’s reading this blog. You can joke about your physical appearance, clothing, weight, etc., without much worry of offending someone else.
