In this article, I’ll be teaching you the step by step methods to write a How-To article on your blog, your newsletter, on an essay or anywhere possible.
What are How To Articles?
These kind of articles are written with a main intention of teaching people, How-To do any kinda stuff. The name itself got the idea. It might probably be teaching anything. These kind of posts have the power to help people and make them love you like hell.
People on the internet are really in search of problem solving content and critical state solution. That’s where the Hot-To-Do-It Stuffs are going to work for you. If you have a keyword research tool, dive into it and take a look at the search volume of the keyword “How To” and see the follow up keywords too. I bet you’ll pee in your pants! 😀
Have you thought of the search traffic, relevancy and demand of your articles if you write much on it? You’ll be like sticking to a rocket that goes up.

Okay, roll up your sleeves and sit tight, because it’s going to be a tough ride for you. Follow these steps and you’ll be the best How-To do it Guru.
Know what you’re writing.
Have you ever thought of a situation on which your favourite subject teacher on your class sucks in it. Think of your maths teacher saying “5+6=10″. Epic fail, na? And you seriously don’t want that to happen. Right?
I mean, what value can you throw to your readers in a problem solving article when you don’t know about it.
If you don’t know it, don’t write it, just learn it. And if you know how to do it, try it, then write it. Don’t become an Epic Failure! – Amal.
Make sure your it’s Fail Proof.
You might think your skills are cutting edge and it’ll work 100%. But things doesn’t go well in life always as calculated. So, double check and make sure what you are going to teach is bullet and fail proof. It have to be just much more than teaching something. You have to help them to change the complete idea and give something new to them.
Think of Bonus gifts. You gotta gift bonuses on your how to do it articles.
Write like a Boss.
Who would want to read from you if your writing just sucks. No one! You don’t have to be an American born dude who can twist his tongue like hell. But you gotta be a boss on what you’re teaching and the way you write.
Avoid grammar mistakes and keep on writing in a flow. Never edit while writing, do it after the flow.
You have to Decide, Research, Examine, Scribble and Publish the content. I’ve invented a new method by combining the first letter of these articles. It’s the “DRESP method to Write Better” which will make you an even better how to do it writer.
Write in a way that it’s easy for them. Stuff in some humour and your experiences if you can.
Proofread like a Cop.
Cops are good at examining things. After you’ve finished writing your How To Guide, you’ll need to make sure your article is an Error, Typo and Accuracy Free one.
You don’t want people to hit the Red Close button when they read the introduction, Right? So proofread it by taking your time and I can assure that you’ll find some mistakes.
If you see even a small typo which you can correct, don’t hesitate to do it. Mistakes are normal for a human being and correcting them makes one better. And you really do want to become a better writer. Right?
