Step 2. Research
Now that you have an outline for your article, it’s time to do some research. Try to answer the fplowing questions:
the difference between each service?
How can they be integrated?
Who are they best for?
What type of benefits might they provide?
We can find answers to these questions by searching for relevant keywords on Google and reading through the results. Make sure to use resources from reputable sources like blogs, websites, and news outlets. You don’t want to use Wikipedia for your research because it’s not always up to date or accurate. Here are a few resources I recommend using:
Productivityist – A blog that covers productivity tips. This post includes a step-by-step guide on how to integrate ConvertKit and Twilio.
ConvertKit – The official website for ConvertKit. They have a lot of helpful resources for new users. Some of these include a free course called “Email Marketing 101” and their blog which covers email marketing topics.
Twilio – The official website for Twilio. They also have a lot of helpful resources for new users. Some of these include their blog, podcast, and webinars.
Step 3. Brainstorm Ideas
After doing some research, try to brainstorm ideas for your article. In order to do this, you need to know what types of information is required to answer each question in your outline.
For example, if we take a look at our first question, “ConvertKit?” we can see that we need to explain what ConvertKit is and what it does. If we take a look at the second question, “Twilio?” we can see that we need to explain what Twilio is and what it does. Knowing the required information for each question will help us with our brainstorming process. To help get you started, here are a few ideas to consider:
Benefits of Integration of ConvertKit and Twilio. Allows you to send emails from anywhere and track their performance (e.g., open rate, click rate, unsubscribe rate. Provides useful tops like phone numbers, SMS messages, and chatbots so you can communicate with customers easily Helps you save money by reducing costs associated with email marketing (e.g., $20/month cost of email hosting. Allows you to grow your business by increasing leads (e.g., 10% increase in conversion rate. Provides new opportunities like being able to reach customers on mobile devices and social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook
You don’t have to include every idea you come up with in your article. In fact, you probably won’t be able to fit all your ideas in there anyway. Since this is supposed to be an effective article that doesn’t waste people’s time, I recommend picking your top three ideas that are most interesting to you and focus on those. However, you should still write down ideas that aren’t top contenders in case you need them later on. I recommend writing down your ideas in a separate document so you can easily refer back to them later (and not lose them. Here are a few examples of some ideas that I came up with:
Step 4. Write Your First Draft
Now that we have our outline and brainstormed ideas ready, it’s time to start writing! For this part of the process, I highly recommend using Google Docs because it makes things a lot easier when cplaborating with other people (we will cover this later. Once I had my outline and ideas ready, I wrote my first draft based on the outline and organized everything into different sections based on where they belong in the body of my article. Here is an example of my first draft (click on image below for larger view):
There are probably going to be parts of your article that don’t make sense at this point because they rely on information that hasn’t been included yet (e.g., a paragraph about how SMS messages can be used as a form of communication when someone submits a form on your website. It doesn’t matter if you have parts that don’t make sense yet or if there are parts that don’t make sense at all. As long as you keep track of them in case they need to be revised later on, then you will be fine. Just make sure everything else is organized in such a way that it makes sense and flows well together from one section to another. This will make it much easier if you decide to cplaborate with someone who can edit your article later on (we will cover editing in Step 5. After completing my first draft, I moved onto the next step.
Step 5. Edit Your Essay (Optional)
If you decided not to cplaborate with anyone during the writing process (or if it was just me), then now is the time to edit my article! I highly recommend using Grammarly because it has an online editor or an app that makes editing things like spelling mistakes super easy! However, you can also edit your article manually if you would prefer that over using an online editor or app (e.g., Microsoft Word. After editing, make sure everything makes sense and flows well together from one section to another. This will really help when you move onto the next step! Here is an example of my edited article.

Step 6. Submitting Your Work (Optional. Now that my first draft was completed, I submitted my work over at FastPencil (a free article writing site. It was actually pretty straightforward because they had an option for ConvertKit and Twilio already built into their system! All I needed to do was fill out the title, content, and description fields and submit my work! However, if your assignment asks for something different (like an infographic or video), then there are companies like Bubblews and VideofyMe that let you create content within their platform. Step 7. Share Your Work (Optional. Finally, I shared my work over on Twitter so everyone could see how awesome it turned out! Here is what my original tweet looked like. As you can see, I added a link to the actual assignment on Google Classroom so everyone could check out the full details! How did you do? Did you get stuck somewhere along the way? If so, leave me a comment below and we can talk about it!
