Knowing how to write short reports is a skill and marketing technique that will build your online business quickly by allowing you to grow your list with targeted prospects, drive massive traffic to your blog and other sites, build your credibility in your chosen niche, and increase your online revenue. This is content creation at its very best and, hopefully, this will set you on the path of creating content regularly for a variety of uses in your business.
Increasing your revenue is a huge part of this strategy as long you think about how you will be able to monetize your short reports from the very beginning. That’s right, you must decide what you will promote before you even start to write the report, and how to make sure that it remains evergreen (information that will be good for years, not just at the present time) so that you your prospects will be able to use the information you prepare for them for many years to come without it becoming stale or outdated.
The thought of writing a ten to fifteen page report was daunting to me when I was first getting started with my online business. I had written reports of that length for the classes I had taken in order to get my teaching credential, but I typically had a full semester in which to do my research and prepare my paper on the topic I had chosen or had been assigned. This style of writing is very different. And, I’m happy to tell you, no one will be giving you a grade on what you write! Also, you can use PLR (private label rights) content to ensure that you have as much material as you need for this.
In fact, you will want to start your short report by just writing a short blog post on your topic. I recommend just letting your ideas flow to see what comes up. I get some of my best ideas this way, and I’m not sure exactly where they come from. I think about what I want to share with my readers, and then just start writing with small paragraphs, such as the ones I am using here.
Like I said in the very beginning, decide what you will be promoting before you write anything more than your blog post or article. Sometimes I am writing in order to promote one of my own courses or programs, but most often it is to promote an affiliate product or course. The idea is to present information in your short report that will explain clearly to the readers how they will benefit from the products you are recommending. It must all make sense to them, in terms of what they need to do first, and then what they need to do next to move closer to their goals.
By now you can see that writing your short report will be an excellent way to promote your own products and those of others for whom you are an affiliate. My intensive training on How To Write A Short Report is very effective.
