Writing jobs for HR experts.

HR-Human Resource is a department found in almost every corporate. Though my personal view is it is the most unproductive department, the HR professionals enjoy plenty of freedom in their work and receive fat compensation every month.

I came across a website that trains HR people in various faculties and the site hires writers to contribute articles for their training programs. They pay upto $200 per article!

The article contributors are called SMEs (Subject Matter Experts).

How To Quickly Write for Ezine Articles?

You know, a first timer to Ezine Article would be hurt at least 3 or 4 times when his article submissions are rejected. He would be wondering what exactly is required of from My first article to was published after 3 revisions. I am now an expert author for them is a different story.
Are you sailing in the same boat. Want some advise?. Here's how to get the lead out if you draw a blank:

1. Write your action steps first.
Forget about the catchy headline and attractive lead paragraph for now. There's no use in cleverly leading a reader into an article that has no real value to them. So start where you build your credibility, right in the action steps. Of course you want to identify your subject and then tell them how to make their lives easier. For instance, plumbers are always going to have to fix pipes, it's the nature of their business. If you have an ezine to others in the plumbing industry, write about a new technique in the industry on sealing pipes or preparing them for the winter, etc.

2. Save the best for last.
There's something called takeaway or take-home that should be in every one of your articles. It's your last chance to tell your audience, "I know my stuff." Try to put that key piece of information in the last paragraph of your article and you'll want it to be something your reader can do as soon as he or she finishes reading your article. If you're writing to accounts payable clerks, you'd tell them ways to get each department to get approvals on all purchase orders before submitting them. A/P clerks would just eat that up. It's their number one gripe. Bottom line: Give your audience something they can do immediately at the very end of your article. They'll remember your name and become devotees for life- hanging from your every word.

3. Get excited about the benefits.
After you've taken care of the credibility building portion of your article, you have to draw the reader in and whet their appetite for all this great information. By the way, if you write the action steps and take-home first, this part will be easier because you'll be so excited about the information you'll see the benefits of it. And that's what writing lead paragraphs and headlines is all about: benefits to your readers.

Your final take-home advice
No matter what you do, when you're writing to an ezine audience, always include an "About the Author" blurb (some call this a signature file) and a plug for anything new you're into. To do this, determine what you want the reader to do after he or she is finished reading. Do you want the to subscribe to your ezine? Buy your new ebook? Or just visit or site? Whatever the benefit to you is, identify it before you write your "About the Author" section. And you can write this at any time because it's separate from the article and you can use the same "About the Author" blurb for multiple articles. As a matter of fact, you could write one right now.
