Here are the essentials to report creation:
- Prepare an outline. Start with an attention grabbing headline and then list the topics you will cover in your report. List points that you will address for each topic.
- With your outline in hand use it to get your words flowing. Start from the beginning and give accurate and up-to-date information for each section that will give your reader beginning how-to information. You want to give necessary info but not everything. Keep it useful but simple.
- Accent it for more appeal. Use good formatting – bold your titles and subtitles. If you have more information on a topic to offer, give a URL to it in the text.
- Conclude with a list of resources. Here you will include free resources as well as products you have created and have for sale as well as the affiliate products of others you recommend.
