With any article marketing campaign, the importance of keyword research is crucial. What a lesson I learned on word choices the other day. While I was out driving with my 3-year-old grandson, he got a little “sassy” with me, to which I replied, that’s not a nice way to talk to nana, “don’t get smart with me”!
After we arrived home, I later asked him to do something, to which he replied, “I can’t do it”.
While I encouraged him to at least try before he said he couldn’t do it, he said to me, “I can’t do it because I’m not smart”. I was puzzled, to say the least as to where this came from. As I reassured him that he was very smart and could do anything he wanted, imagine my surprise when he said, “no, nana, you said in the car I wasn’t smart”.
I instantly hit the rewind button in my mind and realized exactly what he was referring to. At this point I found myself explaining my words to him, trying to explain to him what I was REALLY attempting to say. His original response, really made me think about being more careful when choosing my words.
In network marketing, it’s important that we never have our ~ potential customers wondering what we are referring to or trying to say. Make sure you are clear and precise with what you are saying. First, carefully decide what it is you want to convey within your article:
- is this informational only
- is this a new product announcement
- is it a testimonial
- an update and connect with your list
