Writing A Killer Author Resource Box

By Guest

Article directories clearly say that when reprinting an article, the authors resource box must remain untouched including the link. The resource box is one of the vital pieces of your article marketing strategy. It is what will bring a person to your website, increase your readers and eventually your sales.

Your resource box should contain enough information to attract readers’ interest, and have an effective call to action that will motivate them to click on your link for more details. Regardless of how good your content is, if your resource box does not persuade the reader to visit your website and find out more, you have wasted an opportunity to earn a user.

Tips for writing a great resource box:

1. Don’t begin your resource box off with your bio. This means to the reader that your report is complete and that they can quit reading. Instead, begin with a question or message that will tempt them to read more. For Example: “Want fourteen more ideas to make money from home?”

2. Do not insert a full bio. Most people are not keen on your full bio or every degree and award you have received. Actually, most people will flick through it and you will lose their curiosity before they get to your site and call to action.

3. Feature at least one link, additional if allowed. Check the resource box guidlines for each directory to understand what you are permitted to include. Many directories allow one link, some two. Make sure to include as many links as you are permitted.

4. A strong call to action is a real requirement. Have a statement which notifies the reader what they will get when they click on your website link and how it will support their lives. For instance, “Download Joe’s free post now for more ways to generate income in your sleep!”

5. Answer the crucial question. When crafting your resource box, think about the question all visitors ask (if just subconsciously)… “What’s In It For Me?” (WIIFM).

6. Create a different resource box to fit every piece of writing that you create. If the article is about home interior, then draft your resource box to relate to that with a suitable offer and link. If the next post is about tool selection, get your resource box in that track. Start a file of resource boxes to help you to add an appropriate one without having to recreate it each time.

The resource box is your option to tell the viewer what you have in store and what they should do after that. If you can show a viewer what they will make by clicking on your link, you’re almost certain to build your website visitors with the articles you create.
