Good Morning Wizzlers!

I'm currently building an article called "How To Build A Product Based But Highly Informative Article - For Newbies"

Which covers MY ways of building and managing a product based informative article (the kind wizzley loves). I got to thinking about the forum discussion about PBA's (product based articles) and although overall we all seem to have the same concept for what makes a page convert, what format works for these types of articles, and we all agree the content should both dominate and inform the customer of the product...

Where we differ is in how we "think"  the perfect product based article should look, be formatted i.e. big images, small? one ad or as many as possible? are the ads better above the fold? things of this nature.

I was thinking if any of you would like to build a wizzle covering YOUR angle on how to build the best wizzle for product sales, (or for any site but focusing on ours for this) could you build a wizzle about it and make it as informative as possible i.e. why we should do this and that (in your opinion/experience).

The wizzles could all come back here and add a link to it so everyone could check them out. I'd be curious to see everyones side of this and the wizzles could help newbies create them. Maybe make this a stickie in the tips section?

My article is near complete, just adding images, formatting but I'll link to it here when it's published.  I'm also planning on building a full tutorial using a real page build (building a product based article to actually publish). I'm going to go through the steps the way I do it from finding the products to how to integrate them and create an article (same is in the article just not animated :)

Any thoughts?

My article will be at: (not published yet, maybe tomorrow)

I think that's a great idea! But I'm so new at doing them, I'll just be reading and learning! I think even just posting some good tips and linking to examples would help me.

Perhaps Simon could put a way to join a subscription if you didn't check the box, perhaps a check box like on HP "follow this post unfollow this post"

Maybe he would. I'm always forgetting to check the box until it's too late.

Yeah, we've talked about this before. It's on our to-do list but there was always something more important going on. Simon is currently on vacation until the middle of next week.

I get it, also when you change anything in a database type system it could screw other things up so just adding a check box, for example, could mess with other code if it's not merged exactly right, so they use beta test sites to create/test new features and only when everything proves stable can they release it. So on top of it being on a to do list even if they get to it it will require some time to make it work :)

By the way guys I just published my article linked to above... comments and feedback appreciated...
