Your content is your voice: It represents you and your business

Great content is what drives the digital market today: Pictures, videos, articles, blogs, and social media posts are ways to appeal to your customers and connect with them. You know this, however, knowledge isn’t enough – you have to actually produce the feed. But running a business is a lot of work. There’s plenty more than just writing to be done.

So what do you do? You find a good writer, that’s what.

Now let’s get down to business – yours and mine. The competition for writing on the internet is tough. There are plenty of us out here pitching for you to trust our work. With so many options, how do you find the right match?

Pricing might be one determining factor, but don’t be fooled. The proverb, “you can’t get quality on a budget” really does apply to us writers. Cheaper isn’t always a good thing.

Don’t fall for flashy, either. While being able to engage is a REALLY good skill, it isn’t enough. Effective content goes much deeper than catchphrases and flashy content. It appeals to your readers on a personable level. In order to accomplish this, you need a set of skills, not just one.

Qualities of a Good Writer:

- Captivates your audience

- Versatile in their techniques

- Highly grammatically skillful

- Asks the right questions upfront

- Conducts appropriate research

- Wants to know your business, goals, preferences, etc.

- Is knowledgeable of SEO, copywriting, meta scripts, etc.

In all of the work that they do for you, your goals should always shine through: Converting to sales, turning readers into email subscribers, increasing content sharing and website traffic, etc., etc.

CONTENT QUALITY ASSESSMENT

How do you differentiate good content from mediocre?

Good content should do the following:

- Engage your audience

- Provide value to the reader through factual information

- Be grammatically pristine

- Interest people enough that they want to share it with others

- Be concise and results-driven

What are the desired results?

- Improved SEO metrics

- Higher ranking on Google’s search pages

- Increased traffic to your site

- CONVERT TO SALES

That’s right. Good content is EFFECTIVE content. Because really, what’s the point of spending tons of money and time only to increase your site’s word count? Nothing.

Getting back to your business. How do you find the right match?

Always look at samples of the writer’s work, preferably in a field similar to your own. If you are looking to have webpages written, ask to see sample landing pages. If you need blog posts for a health and beauty site, ask if they have similar content to show you. Take the time to read through their work, and while you do, ask yourself these questions:

1. Did their writing make you want to keep reading?

2. Did you notice any grammar or syntax flaws?

Pro tip: At the end of the day, a really good match is not just someone who can write, but a person/team who is willing to take the time to deliver to your needs and meet your goals. This will allow you to keep reaping the rewards long after the job is done.

Now that you know all the tricks, take a look at my work to see if we could be a good fit. Remember to ask the questions above!
