How to focus on needs and examples in article

To discuss more about valid points and encourage readers through your article writing, you can narrate real-time stories. It could be a personal story or a business success or a problem-angled query, when you include it in your article, readers are encouraged.

This concept is understood as Maslow's hierarchy as "A Theory of Human Motivation"

"Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a theory in psychology proposed by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper "A Theory of Human Motivation" in Psychological Review. Maslow subsequently extended the idea to include his observations of humans' innate curiosity." (Source: Maslow's hierarchy of needs)

The five stage model is categorized as:

- Physiological
- Safety
- Love
- Esteem
- Self-actualization

Analyze whether your article is able to promote all of those five stages referred above. The satisfaction achieved by readers is connected to your success.

Article examples that you narrate should fulfill the needs of your audience and must also help them to grow higher.

Quote relevant examples in sync with your article title and retain the interest of readers. It could be any of the following:

- Incidents

- Experiences

- Happiness

- Sadness

- Sickness

- Success

- Achieving wants / needs

As long as your article is cornering one or more above Maslow;s hierarchy of needs, you are capturing the interest of your audience.


As a writer, you need to understand that readers refer articles to know, search, find and solve their immediate needs and this is why they are reading your article.
