Don’t make your title too long. Have a unique and catchy yet concise title that will sum up your ideas. Example “Your Resume Is Probably Too Long: Here Are 3 Ways to Cut it Down”

Tips for You

1. Keep the introduction short

There is no need for a lengthy introduction before getting into the core of your piece. Avoid being vague in order to increase the number of words in your sentence.

It is sufficient to have a brief introduction that consists of one to three short paragraphs.

2. Write a valuable piece you are interested with

Our goal is to provide our audience with information that is both engaging and useful. Before you send in your article, you may find it helpful to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is the information included in this article useful?
  • Who will benefit from it?
  • How would it be beneficial to other people?

3. Keep your writing simple

Reading simple writing saves time. Complex writing makes readers uncomfortable, so they lose interest. Plain language is faster and easier to grasp.
