25 Tips For Writing At The Content Authority

  1. Carefully proofread every article before submitting it to be certain there are no errors in your writing.
  2. You must consistently submit articles that are free of errors to remain at Tiers 2 and 3.
  3. After you become a Tier 2 or Tier 3 writer, please continue to write Tier 1 articles when the queue is full. This helps us to move out the lower tier articles and keeps our buyers coming back with more write orders.
  4. Do not forget that “rewrites” are a quick and easy way to write articles without doing any time-consuming research. However, one must reach Tier 2 level to access rewrite orders.
  5. Carefully read and follow all buyer directions to avoid getting your article sent back for revisions or sent to another writer.
  6. Always make sure you use the keywords and keyword phrases exactly as written in the write order directions, and as many times as requested by the buyer.
  7. When you create a title for your article, do not just repeat the keywords. Create a title that will attract readers’ attention.
  8. Follow standard rules for capitalizing titles and headings. Capitalize all nouns, verbs, and words of four or more letters. Do not write the entire title or heading in capital letters.
  9. Write formally and in the third person unless the order instructions specify otherwise.
  10. Every paragraph should be at least three sentences long.
  11. Do not directly quote people or use quotation marks, unless asked to do so by the buyer.
  12. Refrain from using slang or other informal expressions.
  13. Do not use contractions.
  14. Only use one space after the period ending a sentence.
  15. Do not ask questions. Make statements. Instead of “Are you tired of…” write “If you are tired of….”
  16. It is fine to use subheadings, but avoid lists, numbered lists, and bulleted lists, unless specifically asked to do so by a buyer.
  17. Avoid using exclamation marks.
  18. Do not tell readers what they will find in the article – simply provide the information.
  19. Write your articles in a word document. After proofreading them, copy and paste the articles in the correct “write order” area.
  20. Save your articles and put the ID number on your copy; taking this extra step will help if any questions about one of your articles arises.
  21. Always use a spellchecker; TCA provides this for all of your articles.
  22. The structure of all articles should include using the main keywords in the first or second sentence, exactly as written, even if this poses a challenge. In addition, always use them in the last paragraph and in the title.
  23. The usual construction of an article is a. first paragraph of an article contains an introductory sentence, b.  information/details are in the middle paragraph(s), c. and the last paragraph provides a conclusion.
  24. Use the last sentence or two to summarize information presented in the article. Do not just end abruptly.
  25. If you read or type very fast, it may help to read your articles aloud; this sometimes makes it easier to spot or hear any errors or missed words.
