Blog writing is the best way to share your ideas, passions, and expertise with the world. So make it your platform to inspire, entertain, and educate people. And make money while you’re at it because blogging has monetization opportunities.
Writing a blog might seem overwhelming in the beginning. You have to weed your copy through millions of blog posts daily.
But how can you write a blog that readers will read and search engines will rank? You will find the answers to these questions in this article.
Copywriting is more than just stringing together a few phrases to explain what your company does. The core principles of your company should be reflected in your copywriting. It should also leave a lasting impression on readers and inspire them to take the desired action.
Clear and concise content should be used to accomplish all of this.
Without high-quality content, your website’s design and SEO are useless. It takes a lot to write good content that is also convincing, including exceptional writing ability, in-depth research, passion, and empathy. The good news is that you can truly get outstanding results over time if you follow the rules and make every effort to improve your copywriting abilities.
The first important point to note is that copy that is keyword-stuffed is bad copy. In reality, a good quality copy should demonstrate your uniqueness, ingenuity, and capacity for perspective-shifting.
It should highlight your desire to connect with a sizable, varied audience as well as your capacity to attend to the unique demands of all your audience types.
Additionally, it should demonstrate that you are more knowledgeable than any of your primary competitors and can predict, evaluate, and present new trends and concepts with greater speed and accuracy. Simply said, effective copy demonstrates your command of the English language.
Poor copy is a blatant sign that you are uninspired and lazy. Bad copy is web writing with zero value, which doesn’t pique the attention of your readers or entice them to return to your website.
It takes the average blogger 3 hours to write 1,000 words. I started my personal finance blog just 2 months ago but have already written 193,731 words of content (around as many words as Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire).
Doing the math it should have taken me around 555 hours or 14 weeks (or 3 and half months) working full time to do this. So how did I do it?
Outsourcing. But not just any outsourcing.
Outsourcing content creation at scale, speed, quality and most importantly at a budget.
In this guide, I will share my step by step process for finding, training, and retaining freelance writers at 2 cents per word.
As an experienced copywriter, I’m passionate about writing high-quality, well-researched content that matches the tone and style of my clients.
It’s always been a passion of mine, and I couldn’t imagine having another job. However, the more experienced I become in the copywriting and content space, and the more I delve into the market, the more I find it to be a challenging and strange place.
From answering questions from budding copywriters on Quora and other Q&A sites to reading my fellow copywriters’ comments on social networking sites like LinkedIn, I’ve noticed how competitive and tough the copywriting market can be today, particularly for corporate copywriters like me. For freelance copywriters, it’s even harder, with the freelance market so precarious.
There are many different types of copywriters, content creators and journalists out there, but I’m focusing on business copywriters and content managers who write for organisations across the corporate landscape.
While I adore writing reviews of fun stuff, like food, lifestyle, books and puppies, I’ve had to specialise in business content, B2B marketing and search engine optimised website writing.
As such, this article is about my experience in these markets, and how potential copywriters who want to enter it can succeed.
