# The Red Alert Article Template
When you stick a big warning sign under the nose of your reader, he’s bound to read your article to find out how to avoid pain.
You can use the Red Alert Article Template to do exactly that. This is how to use it:
1: Pick your topic.
2: Take a problem that you’re familiar with in your field.
3: List the warning signs your reader should make certain to notice in time.
“7 Warning Signs that Your Spouse is Having an Affair”
“If Your JV Does This It Should Raise a Red Flag for You”
4: Write an introduction to your article, letting your reader know what he can expect, and what advantage he’ll gain by reading it.
5: Make each warning sign an introduction to a paragraph or two in a bulleted list.
(1) Your Partner Removes Blond Hair from His Clothes, and He/She Is Not Blond. This could be a warning flag (and so on).
6: Write what your reader should do to avoid pain, if he should notice these warning signs.
7: Summon up your article in the conclusion, or lead into your resource box, if you’re writing for article syndication, traffic or back links.
