Writing Effective Resource
The purpose of the resourse box is to give
your reader a call to action. It is designed
to get them to do the following:.
up for your email list
you a phone call
away for a free info packet
Next to the title, the resource box is one
of the most important pieces of your article.
You want to make sure you get this piece
right because this will determine the success
or failure of your article writing efforts.
You can have a great article that gets people
to want more, but if there is nothing else
after the article to tell them what to do,
then you miss out on the opportunity for
another interaction with the reader.

Top 3 Problems I See
With Resource Boxes.
I am a manager for an
article directory and here are the top 5
problems I see with the resource boxes of
articles submitted to the directory.
- No links/broken links - make sure you
check your links, that they are working
or that they are active.
- Links that go to SPAM sites. - You took
the time to write a great article, why
would you want to send them to a spammy
site after all that work? You completely
shatter your credibility when you do this.
- No call to action - You may have a link
that goes to a great site, but you gotta
give me a reason to click on it! What's
in it for me if I do click on your link?
Some Things To Make Resource
Boxes More Effective.
- Add a statement of credibility.. Why
should I listen to you? Stating things
like, "I have made $$$ using this technique",
or "I have been in this business for X
years", or "I am an award winning Y", helps.
- Don't put too many words in your resource
box. Publishers will be less likely to
publish your article if your resource box
is too long. Also your reader will probably
lose interest before they get to your call
