Resource Box Rules: Winning Tactics

If you’re writing articles to get traffic to your website then you need to know these basic but ESSENTIAL resource box rules that will make people want to pour into your site in droves. Really! Read more…..


Lets face it people use articles to send traffic to their websites.  But if their resource box is lousy and not worded right they will get minimal, if any traffic.  Thats a fact.


“So,” you ask, “what kind of resource box do I need?”


You need a resource box that is attention grabbing, heart stopping, world jolting…. Okay, so maybe thats a wee bit of an exaggeration!


What you really need is a resource box that is short and snappy that asks or tells your prospective customer to take action.


You shouldn’t make your resource box (also called an Author’s Bio, About The Author, etc…) very long.  You don’t want to bore your reader with all the details of your writing career.


Sorry to sound so harsh but on the internet people want to be entertained and enlightened.  They will only read what interests them.


If your article is informative and page scrolling (as opposed to page turning) then you will get a lot of people to read it, but if you lose them at the start or halfway through your resource box, you won’t be able to convert them into traffic or buyers.  Why??


Simply because they will never reach any link you provide them with, they will close the page and go on to read a different article.


You can’t afford to let this happen!


So here’s what you do about it.  You keep your resource box at a maximum of 5 lines long.  You tell them to visit your site for more information on that subject or to opt in for their free newsletter or report.


You give them an action to take.  Because as surely as you aren’t specific about what it is that you want them to do next, they definitely won’t do what you want them to.


So unless your resource box grabs them with the same intensity as your article you can kiss those prospective buyers goodbye!


Another common mistake made by newbie writers is to not make their website link an active one.  This can happen when you just type www.mysite.com, instead of putting http://www.mysite.com, or whatever the full address is.


In most cases people are not going to bother to take the time to copy and paste an inactive link to visit your site.


So again make sure as much as you can that your link is working.  It’s true that some article databases don’t provide this feature, but the majority of the article databases do.  One way to make your link active is to use the following HTML code:


<a href= “http://www.my-site-address-here.com“> Main Keyword Here </a>


Tip: Only use the above HTML on article websites that allow HTML.  If the site does not just type your url in as you normally would.


Try going to the article site you posted your article onFeature Articles, as a browser instead of logging into your writer’s account.  Find your article and test the link in your resource box to see if it works.


In conclusion I guess the best way to show you what I mean is to give an example.  So be sure to read my resource box below ;-)
