When someone first starts out with article marketing, they find that they are inundated with information. They are told to do this and that, that customers would rather read this, or that this topic is good.

But something that they may not know about are the different formats that are used in article marketing. So here are some of the most popular.

1. One of the most popular types of articles is the list article. They are popular because they are quick to write and quick and easy to read. This type of article is written by listing out some of the key points that are related to the topic you have chosen. Each of the points should begin with a good action word and followed by a few sentences.

2. Another popular format is FAQ articles. Like the list article, this is an article that is very easy to write and gives readers the information that they are looking for. Compile a list of the questions that customers asked and write the answers to the questions.

3. If you are looking to get a big number of articles written in one day, a good format is brain dump. The writer freewrites everything they can think about the topic for anywhere from ten to fifteen minutes, and then takes a break. Once the break is over, they summarize what has already been written and then start all over again. When the brain dump is over, you can find that there are a few pages worth of material, anywhere from 1500 to 3000 words of material. The only thing that is left is to break that down into smaller articles.

4. Another popular format is pros and cons articles. This is a great format because it shows people the negative as well as the positive, and lets them decide for themselves. It can also give you a chance to voice your opinion.

All of these formats won’t work for every subject, but they are some of the formats that people have found to be useful. Look at your topic and decide which format is going to be right for it. You want the article to make sense and to appeal to your readers.
