Article Marketing Tip: Write a Top Ten List

Have you ever had a mental block when you sat down to write an article for your ezine or blog? This can happen if you don’t have a plan for what topics you want to write about.

An easy way to break through this barrier is to write a top 10 list. A top ten list — as we all know from David Letterman — is a list of 10 items on a particular subject.

Examples might be:

  • The Top Ten Ways to Strengthen Your Relationship

  • Ten Ideas to Jumpstart Your Creativity

  • Ten Teambuilding Activities for Leadership Teams

  • The Top Ten Ways to Grow Your Business

You get the idea. Once you have your specific title, it’s easy to write up a quick list. Then, just fill in a sentence or two under each bullet point, and you have your article. It’s a really quick way to break through the mental barrier of feeling that you have nothing to say.

Try it and you’ll see. It doesn’t get any simpler than that!

Here’s a great resource from Chris Knight @ezinearticles. It’s a worksheet called
