Wizzley Success Strategies - Interview With Paula Atwell

by chefkeem

Success strategies for profitable online writing only develop with years of experience. In this 3-part video interview, Wizzley author Paula Atwell shares her insights and tips.

Making money with online articles is not something you can learn overnight. It is no coincidence that the word 'article' contains the word 'art'. Yes, it's the artful composition of authenticity, topic selection, writing style, and page design that attracts readers and buyers to our online content.
In addition to being an artist herself, Paula is also a smART business woman owning a successful art gallery in Cleveland, OH. When years ago she decided to become an online author, she treated this just like her offline business - with determination, industriousness, and persistence.

Paula Atwell On Wizzley

For many years, Anne (nightowl) and I had known Paula for her generous community spirit as well as her outstanding body of online work on Squidoo, Hubpages, Squidlog, and several of her own web properties. So we invited her to be our first beta tester for our new "baby": wizzley.com. Paula signed on with her familiar online ID: lakeerieartists. Her feedback was---and still is---priceless.

At the time of this writing, Paula has crafted 152 quality Wizzley articles that already made her some money. Her 212 fans (among Wizzley members) watch closely. They know that there's always something to learn from her new articles. Are you a fan of Paula, yet? 

Now, sit back and enjoy these 3 interview videos about tips and tricks, success strategies, and how to make more money with Wizzley.

What To Write About And How To Present Yourself Online

Part 1 of Paula Atwell's success strategies for Wizzley authors

Take-Aways From Part 1

  • Write about what you know; your confidence will shine through in your writing and earn you the trust of your readers.
  • Be very specific with your topics and write about personal experiences. Although people are mainly looking for factual information, they also want to be able to relate to the author.
  • Even if you don't want to show your own picture, feature a person as your profile image; people relate better to people. Then identify your personality through your writing. However, certain topics (medical; health advice; life changers) should be presented by a real person. 

Better Conversions With Highly-Specific Niche Topics

Part 2 of Paula Atwell's success strategies for Wizzley authors

Take-Aways From Part 2

  • Find a very specific topic that still can be divided into several ultra-specific subtopics.
  • Write articles on all those subtopics and then link them together in a circle (one article links to the next one, and so on), or by creating an "index article" (hub article) about the main topic, which then features links to all the subtopic pages.  

The Benefits Of Community Involvement

chefkeem, Thank you for the biography, links and practicalities. In particular, I appreciate the visual and written reinforcements through the three videos and their takeaways.
Have you held contests with cash prizes, and when's the next?

It's great to connect with the real Paula and Chef through these interviews. It brings new interest to their other wizzles. Thanks for doing this, Chef, and thanks, Paula, for sharing your knowledge so generously.

I also wanted to add, I feel its very advantageous to have a real image of yourself, the author, just as you would an authors picture in any book your write. I really enjoy giving myself to my readers, making that connection it is for this reason you may notice I end each article I write with a personal closing. I've learned my readers feel a bond with me Katie the writer, one with a name, face and personality they can depend on to be consistent. I am who I am and they connect to me for these reasons. If they were to see me on the street they would recognize me as Katiem2. Great article and wonderful interview.

Much Love and Success, Katie
