1. Create Marketable Content
When buyers come to a content marketplace, they look for pieces of content which can help them get more traffic to their website / blog. Hence by creating articles which are to-the-point and help sell an idea or product – you are increasing the chances of selling off your article faster!
This also means creating articles from a third person’s perspective, refraining from giving personal accounts and a first person narrative.
2. Create SEO driven Headings and Articles
While Search Engine Optimization may not be every writer’s forte – in the digital age, it’s a must to know the basics! So while creating your article, make sure that it revolves around a central keyword or string of keywords and include it in your article’s heading and summary. This way a buyer will know that article has been carefully crafted for marketing products related to that specific keyword only.
For example, if you are creating an article about ‘Five places you must see in Australia on your next trip’
The keywords here would be – Australia, places to see in Australia, top places to see in Australia and so on. By scattering these keywords through your article, you can make sure that once purchased, the buyer will compelled to come back for picking up your second article – owing to it’s impact!
The second thing you need to keep in mind is creating a summary with the main keywords included in the article. Since the article in this case is, ‘Five places you must see in Australia on your next trip’ – the places you are talking about also become keywords. It’s highly advisable to use these keywords in your summary, making the objective of the articles absolutely clear.
3. Create Timeless Content

A news piece that was written a week ago or a piece of evergreen content? 99% of the times it’s going to be the latter as buyers are always looking for articles which can add value to their blog / website in the long run.
