The Secret of Writing How-To's

Be It Books, Blogs, Courses or Content -
There's a Simple Model That Just Works

Research shows that only 5 to 15% of ecourses are ever completed.  How To books, long form content, even (and especially) videos, all suffer a similar fate.  Early abandonment – way too early.

The result is a dissatisfied customer, a confused and likely demotivated learner, a lost opportunity to help someone achieve more.

But why?

Usually it’s a failure to deliver. In the title or the description, a promise is made.  Quote: “This information will teach you How To…”

The learner/reader starts thinking this is exactly what they want.  But it turns out, that’s not what they get.  So they stop and look somewhere else.

Hi, I'm Ron Murphy - Welcome to "The How To Writer"

One of my clearest memories from childhood was the day I discovered that I could learn about playing baseball from a book. I knew books held fun stories and adventures — but how to play baseball?!

Suddenly, I had a magical key. It could unlock anything I might need to know.  I was so curious.  I wanted to know how to do everything I encountered.  From how to ride a big boy bike to, a few years later, how to publish a neighborhood newsletter.

How To books would show me how to do anything that interested me.  And I was interested in so much!

This site and my work focus on How To writing.  Primarily I create digital how to courses and books that show readers how to use tech and market digitally.
