30 Tips in Writing a Great Article - Shared by the Brainz Magazine Community on Clubhouse

Written by: Mark Sephton, Executive Contributor

Executive Contributors at Brainz Magazine are handpicked and invited to contribute because of their knowledge and valuable insight within their area of expertise.

Over this past weekend we collectively as a Brainz Community shared valuable insights into what we each believe makes a great article. Many whom contributed have years and years of writing experience and the value generated over 2 rooms created in Clubhouse was phenomenal.

I didn’t just want those whom have clubhouse to benefit from the wealth of knowledge created and shared but for the entire "Brainz Community" to benefit from the valuable and helpful insights collectively expressed.

If you are familiar with Clubhouse, you now have the ability to create your own club. I am delighted that Brainz have now created a club "BRAINZ MAGAZINE EXCLUSIVE" for all their members to be apart of, and like Brainz I was thrilled to host the last 2 days under my new club "One thing". The essence of One Thing is to create an open conversation where each person can contribute one thing to the conversation. For example, "What one thing do you do to fill your emotional cup." My One thing rooms tend to be on a Friday at 11.15am GMT, Saturday at 1pm GMT and Sunday 3pm GMT, would love for each and everyone of you to contribute and share.

I wanted to share the 30 tips we have created together in the hope it will give you new ideas and new confidence in writing your next article:

  1. It’s all about the audience ( reader ) When you write an article always keep the reader front and centre in your mind

  2. Offer actionable advice, Information to revelation is when you tell people how to apply that which you share

  5. Be specific, really important to get to the heart of the matter
