A simple way to structure a basic article is to break it down into 3 parts. (It also speeds up the writing process for you).
1. The introduction.
2. The body
3. The conclusion
In the introduction, you tell them what the article is about and/or the problem that you will be solving.
Next, in the body, write 3-4 main points relating to the topic. Discuss your ideas, and/or give solutions to the problem. You can also bullet point your ideas, or make a numbered list of solutions (Top 10 reasons etc). Keep it concise and try to write in an 'active' voice.
Then, in the conclusion, summarise what the article was about and include your link to a product/service or related site. Just make sure your keyword, which contains your link, flows naturally within the sentence structure.
Hope this helps :)
