A Step-by-Step Guide to Writing a Compelling Article Introduction

writing

Wouldn’t it be great if every single person who clicked on one of your articles read it from start to finish, unable to pull their eyes away from the screen?

I think we both know the answer to that question.

To achieve this goal, however, you must master the art of writing intriguing introductions.

Wait a second, you’re thinking. Writing introductions? Isn’t that kind of a small detail of a 2,000-word article?

Your article intro is not a small detail.

The introduction to your article is often the difference between engaging readers and having a bounce rate high enough to make a click-baiter cringe.

Think about it. If you don’t grab your readers right away, you’ll lose them.

You went through all that work of writing a killer article, right? You worked hard at it. You spent a lot of time on it. You did a ton of research.

But if your introduction sucks, your efforts will be all for nothing.

You lost before you even got started!

If you want to write great content, improve the success of your marketing campaigns, and increase the loyalty of your fans, you must master writing introductions.

Let me show you how.

1. Master the opening line

To have a strong introduction, you need to open with a strong first sentence.

The millisecond your reader hits the page, they have an extremely high likelihood of leaving the page.

image08

Data says so.

The first sentence has one single purpose: to entice the reader to read the next sentence. In doing so, it sets the tone for the rest of the article, hooking the reader in, one step at a time.

If you fail at this, you readers won’t scroll.

This is a histogram showing how far people scroll through Slate article pages. Each bar represents the share of people who stopped scrolling at a particular spot in the article. (An article is assumed to be around 2000 pixels long; if the top of your browser window gets to the 2000-pixel mark, you're counted as scrolling 100 percent through the article. The X axis goes to 120 percent because on most pages, there's usually stuff below the 2000-pixel mark, like the comments section.) This graph only includes people who spent any time engaging with the page at all--users who "bounced" from the page immediately after landing on it are not represented. The graph shows that many Slate readers do not scroll at all. That's the spike at the 0 percent mark, representing about 5 percent of readers. Most visitors scroll about halfway through a typical Slate story. The spike near the end is an anomaly caused by pages containing photos and videos -- on those pages, people scroll through the whole page.

And if they don’t scroll, they won’t engage.

Check out this article by Dilbert author Scott Adams to see how the first sentence is done.

He writes this:

I went from being a bad writer to a good writer after taking a one-day course in “business writing.”

That’s a great opening line.

Why? Because it makes me want to know more!

  • How did he become a good writer?
  • What did he learn?
  • Could I benefit from it too?

Adams nailed it. He drew us in by making us ask questions.

If you don’t know how to craft an intriguing first sentence, the remaining 980 words of your article will be a complete waste.

Save your writing introduction ideas in one place across all the document apps you use.

Luckily for you, with a few simple tricks, writing a phenomenal first sentence can be quite easy.

The first thing to keep in mind is that you want to keep the first sentence short. This makes it easy for the reader to digest the first bits of information and prevents them from losing interest quickly.

But there is more to it than that.

You have to make sure that the first sentence grabs the reader’s attention and holds it for the rest of the article.

Here are a couple of tried-and-true tactics that make for super compelling first lines.

Ask the reader a question

This is an easy way to get the reader’s attention and get them engaged without a whole lot of effort on your part.

For example, if you are writing an article on quitting your job and starting your own company, you could open with the question: “Did you know that almost 70% of Americans report being actively disengaged from their careers?”

Why does this work?

It has to do with the brain’s “limbic reward system.”

The Limbic Reward System lights up when curiosity is piqued.

When this system is activated, dopamine is released. And dopamine gives us a sense of reward and pleasure.

When we are intrigued by a question, i.e., experience a sense of curiosity, the limbic reward system lights up. And that’s why we want to keep reading—it’s rewarding to satisfy curiosity.

Writer Olga Khazan asks a question that’s on everyone’s mind, causing the reader to be instantly interested.

image13

We want to know the answer to that question, so we keep reading.

That’s why a question is a great opening line. You can even use the question as the article title.

Tell a story

The brain also lights up when it encounters a story.

According to the theory of neural coupling, certain portions of the brain are activated when a reader thinks about the same mental and physical activity that a character in a story is doing.

image03

James Clear usually starts his blog articles with a story, often a true story.

image12

The story makes his readers interested in the article and keeps them reading to the very end.

Use a shocking quote

Another great way to start your article is to use an attention-grabbing quote.

Let’s say you are writing an article on world travel. A great way to introduce the article would be with the quote from Helen Keller:

“Life is a daring adventure or nothing at all.”

Tell the reader to imagine

Sparking the imagination is an instant way to draw the reader into the experience of the article.

Notice how this article from Wired For Story begins:

image11

The reader tries to obey the imperative by imagining. This effort compels the reader to read further, drawing them into the article.

Writers for The Atlantic are experts at their craft. This writer does the same thing—asking the reader to imagine.

image01

Share an interesting fact

In a day and age when the Internet is so rife with crappy information and fraudulent “gurus,” people are skeptical. They have every reason to be.

Opening your article with a relevant fact or statistic is a great way to establish trust and authority from the first sentence and let readers know you’ve done your research.

2. Have something unique to say

Okay, so you’ve crafted an excellent first sentence, and you have your reader’s interest.

Now what?

Now, you have to hold that interest by having something interesting and uncommon to say.

Very few people take the time and energy to regularly produce new, thought-provoking content. If you do, you’ll set yourself apart from the herd in a big way.

Forget re-purposing of old articles or rewriting stuff from other people’s websites. If you want to have the reader’s respect and attention, you have to say something they’ve never heard before.

Unfortunately, a lot of the stuff you read today has been regurgitated 28 times before.

Let’s imagine you run a travel blog. Based on my advice, you write a number of 3,000-word comprehensive “How-To Guides.”

Whenever a reader opens your guide on financing their first around the world trip, they’ll expect to read all about airline rewards programs, frugality, and credit card points.

And that information is great, but it is also very generic.

A better introduction would be something like this:

How would you like to save up enough money in the next 6 months to spend all of 2017 traveling the world?

That would be pretty epic, right?

Well, this is entirely possible, and in today’s article, I am going to show you how you can do this.

It’s not by skipping your morning latte or spending thousands of dollars with your credit cards on a few hundred miles either.

I am going to show you how you can create a life of mobility and freedom by leveraging the skills you already have, tactically selecting your destinations, and using a little known tax secret that will save you thousands of dollars!

Sound good? Let’s get to it.

It’s hard to be different. I realize that.

Sometimes, in order to create unique stuff, we simply have to work harder, think longer, and research more than our competition.

Here are some ways you can develop that unique voice in your article introduction:

  • Share a personal story or fact. You’re the only you there is. You can share a story or experience no one else can. One way to tell such a story is to write, “If you know me…”
  • Get your emotions in it. People have an emotional reaction to emotions. When we convey our emotions in our writing, people tend to respond. Besides, emotion is also a unique and personal thing. How do you communicate this in an introduction? Easy: “Want to know how I feel about it? I feel….”
  • Share your goals or vision. If you have a guiding goal or vision for life, you can communicate this in your introduction. “That’s one of the reasons I wrote this post. My goal in life is to…”
  • Make a promise. A promise is a personal and attention-grabbing thing. Give your readers a promise, and it will secure their loyalty and their interest. “I promise that I’ll do my dead-level best to….”

Unique isn’t easy. But it’s worth it.

3. Keep it simple

We live in a world where most people have an attention span of only a few seconds.

Apparently, our attention span is getting shorter!

image05

After a few seconds, we get bored and move on to the next shiny object.

If you want your readers to make time in their days to read what you have to say, make sure you present things as simply as possible.

Longer articles, of course, deserve longer introductions. But it’s important to respect people’s time and attention. You can’t change what is (people’s short attention spans) by writing a long introduction based on what should be (longer attention spans).

Avoid rambling about how great your information is, and just share it already!

4. Speak directly to the reader

Whenever you are writing educational material for other people, you want to use the word “you” as much (and as naturally) as possible.

In this article, I’ve used some variation of the word you more than 100 times. Why? Because I’m talking to you! I want you to know this information. I want you to benefit from it.

By emphasizing the word “you” in your article, you show the reader you are directly addressing them and their situation and not just writing a generic article to the general populace.

But there’s another side to this. I should refer to myself as well. My goal is to convey a personal feel to this article. After all, it’s me talking to you, right? So it’s only natural that I would refer to myself too.

5. Explain what the article is about

The point of an introduction is exactly that: to introduce the content that will be presented in an article.

I cannot tell you the number of times online articles left me confused even I after I’d read a few of their paragraphs.

I couldn’t tell whether the authors were teaching me how to run successful Facebook ads, or telling me a weird story about their childhood.

Take a few sentences, and clearly explain what the article is going to cover without giving away too many details.

This will build suspense around the subject matter while still letting your audience know what they may be in for.

A great example of this comes from the Buffer blog. Notice how the introduction poses a question and then proposes to answer that question.

image02

Your curiosity stays high, but the introduction sets the stage.

6. Explain the importance of the article

Once you’ve explained what the article is, now it’s time to explain why people should care.

Everyone on the Internet approaches every new piece of information with a simple question: “What’s in it for me?”

image09

If you want to write introductions that hook the reader and help your content go viral, you have to master the art of explaining what the reader stands to gain from the information you are sharing—the benefits.

image00

How will it benefit your readers’ lives? How will it solve a problem they are facing? How will it cure a pain they are feeling?

If you understand how to quickly and efficiently answer these questions, you’ll keep your readers glued to your article till the last word.

Conclusion

Few things can make or break your article as easily as an introduction.

If you can master the art of the first few paragraphs, you’ll be able to increase reader engagement, improve sales, and earn a reputation as a phenomenal writer.

It’s not an easy skill to master, but like many things in Internet marketing, it’s fairly straightforward.

If you put in the work, you’ll get results.

What tactics do you use to create a compelling article introduction?

Comments

  1. Rich Spaulding :

    I’ve always struggled with the opening of an article. I really like your points about keeping it simple and using a shocking headline. I’ll try both of those techniques. Thanks, Neil!

  2. Hey Neil,

    Great post! I always like to go in the mind of the reader when I write my introductions for my blog posts and client work. If I can relate a story or speak about their pain and frustration, it’s easier to get them hooked and curious.

    I personally like using questions to open up my posts, but I’m working on other ways to hook a reader so thanks for these tips!

    • Empathy… You’re not b2c or b2b, you’re h2h… Human to human

      • Rupak Biswas :

        Hi Neil,

        Before I say afew words about the article, what you said here in your comment – you’re h2h – will be etched in my heart and mind forever as long as I write. I am a new blogger who is just learning not only about the content, topics, etc. but also learning the art of writing. I had a wishy-washy intuttion that I have to entice my reader, grab their attention, create curiosity, and keep them engaged.

        This post from you really helped me big time with that. It not only gave a a veteran’s insight & knowledge but also reinforced my nascent understanding.

        I’m gonna apply these diligently. thanks for showing me so many routes and how to utilize them effectively. Thanks for this great post!

        • That’s awesome Rupak, happy to hear it 🙂

          It sounds like you have the level of energy and enthusiasm you need to make this happen. Let me know how things go or if you get stuck with anything

    • Elna,

      Questions are a great way to stimulate immediate discussion. It’s also a great way for staying relevant in the mind of the reader because you’re allowing them to personally interact.

  3. Carla Dewing :

    An especially good one today Neil, thanks for the email heads-up. Your point about having something unique to say is one I’m constantly trying to make. In tests conducted on client sites, even the most random sentences – if they are novel and introduce a previously unexplored concept in a new context – result in a lower bounce rate. Go figure!

    Clearly, people are actively looking for something different, even when they have purposefully clicked on something predictable. You won’t believe how many posts and articles online even follow the same general structure. I hate the ‘page one mindset!’ If all the posts say the same thing in different ways, they all say nothing in too many words! 😀

    • Your goal is to make it so every sentence you create is selling them on reading the next line and so.

      The more clear you are on their intent, the more likely they’ll engage with you and purchase your products and services.

  4. Wow!
    You are masters of master thank you so much for this interesting article
    from now onwards I would definitely apply the 6th one in my articles.

  5. Bryan Castro :

    Great article, Neil! I always enjoy them, but this one was particularly helpful. I often use quotes and questions, but I think sometimes I’m too formulaic in my use of them. You’ve inspired me to put a little more work in being thoughtful about my introductions.

  6. Anand Kumar :

    I always struggle with different variation for first paragraph, thankyou Niel for helping with such wonderful ideas.

  7. Neil,

    Another great post. Thank you for sharing your expert knowledge. This post is particularly interesting to me in that I am currently dealing with learning how to write captivating introductions. Very informative and actionable, thank you so much.

    • It was my pleasure putting it together for you Dade. Let me know what your introduction looks like after you write it

      • Neil,
        I am a new follower and I am just reading everything I can about how to write effectively. I am trying to get people to buy solar and I am finding out that educating
        and just providing informative solar news is a good approach, instead of trying to pitch and hard sell.
        I also would like to learn how to become a great money-earning copywriter but would
        use it first to get people more interested in solar for their home.
        I don’t have the money I wish I did have to join courses like yours, so it’s really nice that
        you make yourself so available by writing like you do and making it so available. Thanks.

  8. Perfect timing, I just changed the first sentence on an affiliate article was about to publish.

    I chose to write the audience a question in the first sentence. The thought behind it is to help them know they’ve come to the right page to get there questions answered. Cheers!

  9. Abhishek Jain :

    Hi Neil

    You have made our lives easy by writing this kind of helping stuff. Introduction is what drives a reader to whole post. Amazing introductions in writings give you excellent results.

    Thanks a ton for sharing Neil!

    ~Abhishek

  10. Conversation in articles make readers feel like talking to you whereas informations only feel like some college study book. I like the way you have promoted the idea of directing speaking to readers. Practical practice it is indeed.
    Nice as usual, you are just incredible, Neil.

  11. Craig Cherlet :

    I was a terrible writer in school but articles like this one and the many others out there have upped my game.

    Thanks

  12. Hello Neil, your post is really great, thank you for sharing with us your ideas!

  13. I’ve found introductions to be hardest bits of any piece to write — either they’re summarizing the rest of the article, in which case I can’t write them until the very end, or they’re just trying to draw in the reader (which means trying out dozens of different opening lines/paragraphs). Either way, I can’t just let my writing flow — I have to edit something small over and over, and I’ve always found that to be tough. Easier to just write another sentence and another until I get to my point 😛

    Thanks for the walkthrough Neil — I found the data behind each point especially helpful. I didn’t know 50% of the article was where so many people stopped! What happened to saving the best for last!

    • Every line you write needs to get people hooked enough to read the next line, and the next line after that and so on. Be creative with it and you’ll have some fun

  14. Amir Issapour :

    I went from being a medium writer to a well done one!!!
    Spending about 10 minutes of my life on a well written and full of graphic article and got heaps out of it.
    Thank you Neil.
    I can tell that your points are really enlightening and helpful.
    Even using only free content in your website can change the future of any online business.

  15. I’m actually trying to get away from those “shocking” titles for client’s sites. I know that shocking clickbait stuff works, but it seems to also make some sites appear less like professional authorities and I’m not sure that readers take you as serious when you have baited them into clicking. It’s fine for some sites, but not for me. I want (most of) my clients to appear to be experts that give very professional advice.

    Benji Hyam at Grow and Convert had an interesting post about this recently: http://www.growandconvert.com/content-marketing/specificity-strategy/

  16. I have never really thought about the introduction before. Usually I will just write whatever that comes to my mind.

    From now on, I will put more effort into writing an introduction that gets people into reading further. Thanks Neil for your tips.

    • Having a killer intro can be the difference between someone being glued to the screen and just boucin’

  17. Hey Neil,

    Quick question for you.Since you’re discussing writing compelling articles, do you feel article marketing is still relevant in today’s digital information age? What’s your true feelings on this?

  18. S K Bal Palekar :

    Indeed a great post Neil

  19. Mayur Hazarika :

    I am a rookie content writer and a blogger. Can you please suggest me some options to improve my 1st nblog.its relationtipsblog.wordpress.com.

    I will be so glad to learn how to write good blogs.
    Thanks in advance .

  20. Great post. Thank for sharing. I always have difficulties when I write, introduce, so I often skip this step. But today I think I have some cloud to write a good introduce.

  21. Mohammed Anzil :

    Awesome post Neil. You are the real Internet Marketer….

  22. Neil,
    You have a bookmark reserved just for you on my MacBook Pro.
    I’m right now getting ready to find the rest of your articles [archives]
    so I can read all of them. You are a very sharp mind. Good for you!

  23. Thanks for sharing yet another wonderful piece Neil! I agree that the first few paragraphs are vital in ensuring the success of the blog post, and have experimented with different opening lines. What you’ve provided me are even more ways to do so. Always something to learn from you.

  24. JoAnne Funch :

    Great article, Neil. Thanks.

    I find that it helpful to tailor introductions to the audience where the article is being published. For example, that differs between an article published on LinkedIn versus my own blog versus the business2community.com platform.

    For viewers who give only a few seconds to a page to see if it is really of interest, you are so right, your introduction will keep or lose them.

    • There’s so much content floating around and people just don’t have the attention span for anything sub par

  25. Sofy Raymond :

    Hey Neil!
    Really nice post.
    Asking question from the readers really works great.

  26. uthman saheed :

    I’m good at starting my post with questions and short stories. I will try out the other methods you just enumerated here to see how they work.

    I like been given attention, and you just thought me how to do that greatly.

  27. Thanks so much for this. ANd, especially, thanks for that link to the Instagram article. YOu added value to my life today, for sure.

  28. Hamza Sheikh :

    Article Introductions are as important as the content in the article. I was ignoring introductions at first, but after implementing it in my writing style for testing. I have seen a huge improvement in the reading behavior of my visitors.

    Recently, launched a blog on an event and seeing less than 4% bounce rate on it by the help of article openers and introductions about the stuff I am going to share in the article.

    • Yep and you can continuously tweak it more and more and quickly measure the impact. The more you do this, the better you’ll be

  29. omkar nath nandi :

    True it would be really great if whoever clicks on our article reads it too. Yes opening line has been the corner stone attraction for all forms of communication to writing to advertising. If readers are kept in the loop of question and let them involve with the subject matter of the content, then we can increase traffic and acceptance of the content.

  30. Hey Neil, Great post and thanks! I used to follow the some of techniques that you mentioned here but some of them including asking a question, telling a story are new for me and its really great to follow. It will help me sure for creating great article.

  31. Neil, Excellent guide, I learned something else,

  76. Hi Neil Thankyou for writing this very informative post. Just like you’re informing how to write a catchy first sentence. Your posts first itself is very catch which made me to read it all the way down.
    I myself use some Imagine trick.

    But i will also try some other ways that you mentioned like questioning.

    Thanks

  77. Having something unique to say and keeping things simple, for me – is key. I think that in a world that’s flooded with information, there’s a REAL need for short, on point, and unique content.
    Without these, your’e just full of same dull words, like everybody else 🙂

    Thanks for the article Neil, fantastic stuff.
