Article #3: The “FAQ” Article
If you have your finger on the pulse of your niche, then you’ve probably noticed how the same questions come up again and again. You see these questions on forums, blog discussions, social media, Quora.com and even in your own inbox.

Every day my inbox is flooded with questions about [general niche topic]. People want to know [how to get a specific result]. They want to know [how to get a desired benefit]. And they’re trying to figure out how to [get a good thing] without [getting a bad thing].
Chances are, you probably have these same types of questions. And you’ve probably even spent some time on blogs, forums and around the web, trying to get answers. Problem is, you keep getting conflicting answers, right?
For example, just pop onto any [niche] forum and ask this question: [insert a common question from the niche].
I guarantee that you’ll get conflicting advice. Some people will tell you to [do one thing to solve the problem]. Another group will advocate that you [do something else to solve the problem].

So you’re left to sort through the wheat and the chaff.
If you’re new to that particular community, it’s even harder because you don’t know who to trust.

Article #4: The “Resources” Article
The idea here is that you compile a list of the top resources in your niche. These resources may be either free or paid resources.
You can post a list of the same resources (such as the top 10 books in your niche), or you can compile a variety of resources (such as paid books, free reports, videos, blogs or even specific blog posts, etc).

Alternative Title: Which of These [Niche] Resources Have You Overlooked?
If you’re like a lot of people I talk to, you’re probably always on the lookout for good information and resources that can help you [get a specific benefit].
I’m the same way. In fact, my computer bookmarks are just loaded with useful sites.
Some weeks back I was telling someone about my bookmarks, and he said I should share them with other [niche group members]. It sounded like a good idea in theory.
However, I have literally dozens – probably hundreds – of resources bookmarked. And the truth is, not all of them are that great.
So here’s what I did – I just spent the last week pouring through these bookmarks.
I kicked out the outdated resources, the dead links and so on. I set aside the average information. And when I was all done, I had [number] of the best [niche] resources from around the web.
These are the best, the cream of the crop, so I know you’ll enjoy them too.

But not me.
I was always getting tripped up by [specific obstacles that held you back]. And once I started to really pay attention to what others were doing, I soon learned that they too were making the same [topic] mistakes.

If you look at this from a logical standpoint, you may feel like you should be [taking a specific step]. Turns out that’s wrong – you should be [taking a different step] instead.

Article #6: The “Rant” Article
The idea behind this piece is to push your readers’ emotional buttons. You want to remind them about some injustice, some widespread bit of information, something shady or something else bad that’s going on in your industry.
But be forewarned: this article may polarize people (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing). Use sparingly and realize it’s not right for every niche.
Title: If You’re Not Mad, You’re Not Paying Attention
Alternative Title: Every [Niche Group Member] Ought to be Upset About This…
I almost couldn’t believe it when I first [heard/read] about [description of thing that has you upset]. I thought it had to be some kind of practical joke. I just didn’t want to believe that [description of how this sort of thing could happen in your niche].
I guess maybe I’m just a little naïve. Maybe I’m not quite jaded or cynical enough to be [in this specific niche]. Maybe I want to believe that everyone is good and that no one would ever [do this bad thing that you’re writing about].
Yeah, I know – just call me Pollyanna, the one who thinks that everything in the [niche] industry is all sunshine and roses.
But come on, even if people spend a lot of time dabbling in the darker side of this industry, this whole [description of the event, thing, person that has you upset] must still upset them. I can’t be the only one, right? I hope I’m not the only one, otherwise I’m going to start losing my faith in humanity.
In case you’re not familiar with this news story, let me explain…
[Insert a full explanation of what happened. For example, did a network of affiliates use shady software to hijack commissions? Did “natural” bodybuilders get caught using steroids or other illegal performance-enhancing drugs? Did a well-respected person in the niche get a blemish on their squeaky-clean record?]
I could understand this if [some particular thing had happened to change the course of events – e.g., the person in question had handled the situation differently].
But that’s not what happened. Instead, [describe how the situation unfolded purposefully – e.g., no one did anything to stop it and/or they intentionally did something misleading, fraudulent, etc]. And that’s what has me so up and arms about this whole situation. It just makes me sick every time I think about [insert what part of the situation is particularly bothersome to you].
Problem is, we can’t ignore this in our industry. We shouldn’t ignore it. We shouldn’t let people get away with [insert description of whatever has happened in the industry]. And that’s why I’m taking a stand. Starting today, I’m no longer going to [describe what action you’re going to take, such as not buy certain products, not support certain people, etc].
It’s time we fight back against the dark underbelly of the [niche] industry. Maybe one person can’t make much of a difference. However, if we stand together, united, and [describe what action people can take together], then we CAN make a real difference. We can make sure that [some bad thing doesn’t happen anymore] and we can ensure [that some other bad thing never happens again].
I’ve already started [description of how you’re taking a stand]. Who’s with me?
Article #7: The “Encyclopedia” Article
This is an informational article, the type you might find on a site like Wikipedia.com. The idea is to give a beginner a good overview of some topic, as opposed to focusing on giving “how to” information or tips.
Title: A History of [Topic]
Alternative Title: [Niche Topic] – From [Date] to Today
[Topic] is [define the topic/word – for example, if the topic is “marketing,” then define marketing]. Often you’ll hear other terms used interchangeably, such as [interchangeable word], [interchangeable word] or [interchangeable word]. However, generally these other words are considered part of the overall topic of [topic].

However, by [approximate date], [topic] was starting to become more and more well-known, especially among [group of people].

[Insert Core Component 1: For example, if the topic is weight loss, then you might focus on four core components: good nutrition, cardio exercise, resistance training (weight lifting) and motivation.]]: [Insert description of this core component – give an overview and explain how it fits into the greater topic, why it’s so important, etc.]
[Insert Core Component 2]: [Insert description of this core component.]
[Insert Core Component 3]: [Insert description of this core component.]

Now today you can [get a specific benefit by using the topic the appropriate way].
Article #8: The “Promotional” Article

Article #9: The “Press Release” Article
This is where you share news about your industry, business or a product with the intent of having this news distributed by the media.
As such, this truly does need to be “news” – something informative – and not a promotional article.
Title: [Industry] Sees Signs of [Strengthening/Weakening]
Alternative Title: [Niche Expert] Offers Tips for [Getting a Specific Result]
Every year at this time, [niche members] start thinking more about [some specific activity in the niche – for example, “winterizing their homes” or “losing weight for beach season”]. But plenty of people put it off to the last minute. And then they’re scrambling to [finish some process], which means they usually end up [with less than spectacular results].
“Every year right around [a month or so from now] I get a big rush of people who want me to help them [get some specific result], “says [full name], owner of [company]. “But I’m usually backed up by then.

The reader will think, “If this person can do, then so can I.”
Note: Naturally, you can tell your own story to motivate readers. That’s what I’ve done for this template below.
Title: How [Person] [Received Some Kind of Benefit]
Alternative Title: The Incredible Story of [Some Person Who Got a Surprising Benefit]
I didn’t always [enjoy some benefit that you’re currently enjoying, like “didn’t always wear size 4 jeans” or “I wasn’t always free of back pain”].
In fact, it wasn’t all that long ago that I had to [endure or suffer from some bad thing, like “suffer from chronic allergies”].
Those were some of the [saddest, most embarrassing… or some other appropriate emotional description] times of my life. I can still remember what it felt like to [experience the emotional aspect of a bad thing, such as “hear people laughing at me because I was so heavy”].
Some days I just wanted to [insert appropriate description, such as cry, give up, move away, etc].
Then one day something really shocking happened to me. [Describe this shocking, life-changing or other impactful event that made you decide to make a change in your life]. And it’s at that time that I decided things needed to change. I needed to change. So I made the decision [to get some desired result].

There were days that I didn’t think I’d ever achieve my goal of [describe your goal].
It didn’t help that other people didn’t think I’d succeed, either.
You have no idea how many times I heard naysayers tell me things like:
- Why even bother?
- You’re [too old/too young or some other reason].
- You can’t do this because [insert some common objection why people can’t accomplish the goal].
It’s at that point that I realized that all of these other things going on in my life, like [describe perceived obstacles], weren’t really obstacles at all.
They were excuses.
