    Content Writing

  1. Even if you’re not an articulate individual, trying to ensure that your spelling and grammar are correct should be at the top of your agenda.
  2. If you’re at a loss for what to write, taking a break or using one of the many techniques to help remove writer’s block can prove indispensible to the content creation process. See the Content Strategy category for tips.
  3. A simple way to reduce the complexity of content is to take what you have and boil it down to 50%. It may seem a lot, but reductionism can seriously help eliminate the waffle!
  4. .
  5. Writing your content before you start designing your website can help you better approach the coding stage as you can pick the right elements that describe your content’s value.
  6. Content is king. If you sacrifice the quality of the content for the design of the website, your visitors may likely hit the back button in their browser and never return as a result.
  7. Much of writing for the web is down to practice. Don’t be afraid to start off small with the likes of Twitter or forum posts before building up your credibility as a web content writer.
  8. Making content fun and involving is important to being successful. While dry humourless copy might get across the point, being quirky will emote passion.
  9. Never be afraid to ask for help and feedback or get colleagues to proofread what you have to say. Often, a bit of critique will help you become a better professional.
  10. When linking to another website, ensure you notify the visitor of how the target site relates to the content or element of the website so they don’t end up at an undesired location.
  11. Break your content down into easy to manage segments. Using unordered lists, for example, can help increase the content readability.
  12. Fluff and poor quality marketing speak is unnecessary. Always keep to the point and avoid redundant technical language. We all hate junk and in the recycling bin it all belongs.
  13. Ensure that what you say is factually correct. Citing references will give your words added credibility.
  14. Don’t plagiarise or steal other people’s content. If you find people stealing yours, it’s worth taking the time to learn how to send DMCA takedown notices and cease and desist letters.
  15. .
  16. When writing content of your own, simplicity is valuable. If you can strike a balance between being informative and being overly wordy, you could avoid wasting your reader’s time.
  17. Don’t span long documents over multiple pages if you can avoid it. Such practices can reduce the readability of content as readers will be forced to break their natural flow to jump pages.
  18. If you’re planning on having a blog, ensure that you state if you’re reviewing something and have been paid to do so.
  19. There are so many fantastic CMS solutions (i.e. WordPress). If you find less technical people are going to contribute to a site you make, they can be ideal in removing some complexity and speeding up content production.
  20. Consistency is important with everything you write. Maintaining a core set of standards and values helps ensure regularity.
  21. Always try to put across information in a friendly and non-aggressive tone. Being overly sarcastic or rude can lead to arguments that can degrade the value of your content.
  22. Feedback can be just as important in content writing as the written material itself. Using blog comments, for example, can give entertaining and potentially informative extra reading.
  23. Write for people, not search engines. Your users are more important than your Google PageRank.
  24. If you plan on providing translated content for international users, nothing beats a human translator. With that said, there are some decent translation tools out there.
