5 Science-backed Ways to Write an Attention-keeping Introduction

By Waliyulah Olayide

Imagine you opened a shopping mall. The name and popularity of your mall have attracted potential buyers.

Entering your mall, you knew a visiting prospect would be persuaded to buy a thing or two.

Alas, your entrance is waterlogged with the rain that fell the other day!

What will a potential buyer do?

Even if your mall had the best stock in town, it won’t matter. A potential customer, disgusted, will likely pretend that they forgot something in the car, turn back and leave your mall — for good.

Your article is like that. As a freelancer, business owner or an entrepreneur who has a great message to pass to your audience.

You can’t afford to begin your article poorly.

How to Write 1,000 Words per Day Consistently (Even If You’re a Beginner)

By Charles Bordet

How-to-Write-1,000-Words-per-Day-Consistently

One thousand words a day! That was the goal I had in mind when I decided to start writing a lot more.

This plan won’t easily become a reality, though. I’d never been consistent or productive in my writing, because my usual routine was to merely write sporadically, i.e, when I had time, motivation or a good feeling for it.

Let’s just say that didn’t happen often.

As a result, I wasn’t publishing a lot of content and my website was stagnating.

I decided to do something about it and to write much more than I had done thus far. Instead of writing from time to time, I would write every day and I would write at least one thousand words.

On some days, traffic from Pinterest has even been known to surpass visitors coming in from Google and Twitter.
