Writing the Introduction – How to Hook Your Audience and Keep them Reading

Can you write and opening that hooks the reader and keep them coming back for more? Sure you can!

Make your opening an introduction that hooks the reader with the content and makes then want to stay.

  • Begin with a question or a challenge to your reader.
  • Follow this with a good thesis statement that identifies the objective of the work, makes a point with making, provides structure for the complete work and is easy to identify.
  • The remainder of the work should be filled with stories and solutions that the reader can connect to as they continue to read.
  • Make sure that all of the remaining sections of the work are compelling, well organized and easily read.

In order to draw your reader in you have to cast out your hook with bait that makes them bite…then you reel them in with the rest of your “story.”
