An article is a piece of writing that can be included in a book, newspaper, magazine, website or any other form of publication. It can be an essay, report, story, description, account, review, news or a blog post. It can be on any topic in the universe, such as education, finance, and relationships. In fact, any written composition that is not long enough to be called a book can be called an article. Article writing services include all the different types of articles in their various forms.
What is the purpose of an article?
An article can be written with one or many different purposes, such as to disseminate information to the general public, entertain the reader, express an opinion, explain a viewpoint or situation, explore or discuss a topic, and persuade the reader to take the desired action. Feature articles usually aim to inform, explain and persuade a target audience. In the case of businesses, the purpose of an article is to inform potential customers about products and services and to persuade (subtly) them to purchase the same.

How is a well-written article structured?
Although different types of articles have slightly different structures, the general rule is that a good article should have an appropriate title, an introduction, the main body of the article, a conclusion and sometimes an appendix. Companies that offer article writing services pay particular attention to:
•Title: Every article must have an appropriate title. The title gives a good idea of what the article is about. Since most people only read an article if they find the title interesting, it must be eye catching.
•Introduction: Every good article starts with an introduction, which is the opening paragraph. It is a summary of the main points of the article. It explains the subject to prepare the reader for the details that follow. Since many readers only read the opening paragraph of an article, it should include the most vital information.
•Main body of the article: The main body of the article is made of one or more paragraphs. It elaborates on the subject matter explained in the opening paragraph with detailed descriptions, and relevant facts and figures. These may be divided into subheadings, subparagraphs, and lists if necessary.
•Conclusion: The conclusion is the closing paragraph. It completes the article by linking the last paragraph to the first, often by reiterating a word or phrase in the opening paragraph. It may also end with the writer’s final view on the subject or a suggestion to the reader. Articles are written to be published on websites often conclude by adding a link to a relevant website or a page on the same site.
•Appendix: Some types of articles also require appendices at the end, such as references and related articles.
