Seeing the difference of Articles that are Educational from Articles that are Promotional – part 2
Assume that a favorite journalist of yours started to write about a particular review that says that there is a product that has recently been released. The moment that you start to read the article that you have heard about, you find it as an article that is objective, and the information provided in this article will be of good use because this may aid you in determining whether you would purchase the item being sold or not.
When you got a chance to read this particular article, there is no doubt that you liked it because of the qualities of the products mentioned however, you eventually discovered that the person who wrote the article is actually the one who invented, or the owner of the featured product, and this writer is only in pursuit of getting more sales. This may possibly imply that the person who wrote the article seems to make money from the impressions that it was able to get from the readers of the article.
In this case, the writer may say that the article is only meant to educate the potential readers with regard to this particular kind of product, however, the reader of the article may doubt about the author’s perspective possibly because the writer may gain something from the article that has been written.
If the writer of the article intends to become someone who is professional in this field, a writer who makes articles that is objective, then it must be taken into consideration that there should be any kind of conflict that may influence the interest of the writer and this may become problematic if an article presented has any kind of bias or subjectivity.
It is possible that the reader of your article would think as to whether the article that you have written is actually an article that is highly-informative or simply some kind of advertisement.
If for instance, you feel like you are not certain with the different kinds of articles to be considered and which of these are considered to be educational, then all you hve to do is to think about these:
* Would the reader think or even wonder if you wrote this article so that the product that you are offering would be sold.
* If a link is placed on the resource box, in which this directs the reader to a page wherein it would allow them to purchase products, then, there is no doubt that a reader would feel that the article was made only to have a product sold.
* If you have tried to sell products on various parts of the website, then this would also trigger the readers to feel that you simply intend to sell something.
