Content Creation for Business Blog Writing

Sunday, December 29, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths

Content creation for blog writing can be a challenging proposition, but as in any other area of life, persistence is a crucial element in success. As more and more businesses use inbound marketing, even those businesspeople who do not feel well-suited to blog writing are being forced to get with the times. An essential aspect of successful blog writing is being able to add a personal touch to your material. Below, you will find summaries of seven useful tips on creating web content for your business.

  1. Let readers know your story. What path has your professional development taken? What amusing things occurred along the way?
  2. Write about the positive features of the city in which you’re located – let readers know about the fun sights there are to see, the fun activities there are to engage in.
  3. Talk about what you do in your spare time – this humanizes you in the minds of your readers, and also allows you to step back a bit from discussing business (this is especially useful for businesspeople whose jobs require them to have tight lips).
  4. Use your favorite professional sport to create metaphorical descriptions of how your business functions; sports have broad appeal and connect people across demographic boundaries.
  5. Within reason, share particularly useful organization tools; this will make it more likely that other businesspeople searching for tricks of the trade stumble on your website. Some grateful readers may even share tricks of their own.
  6. Discuss how social media is affecting your industry. What are the pros? What are the cons?
  7. What are ten things you wish you had known when you started out in your business?

The Next Step in Product Content Writing

Saturday, December 28, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths

A product content writing service can be a key component of successful business blog creation, which is itself a key component of a successful business in modern times. While these statements apply to all businesses, they are doubly true for small businesses. In addition to informing readers of your products and services, business blog writing also helps promote ideal placement of your business in search engine results.

Ideally speaking, business blogging reliably provides informative content to your readers while also adding a personal touch that keeps them interested. An interested reader is likely to be a faithful reader, and faithful readers are the foundation for a successful business blog. A small business owner may not have the time, inclination or compositional skill to successfully engage in writing blog posts. If you are such a small business owner, you may wish to consider using a professional product content writing service that focuses on blog creation.

Using a reputable professional product content writing service ensures that you have skilled, experienced writers working on your behalf in blog creation, freeing you up to focus on other crucial aspects of maintaining and expanding your business. Professional product content writers will have extensive knowledge of different compositional techniques and styles, and will thus be able to precisely match their output to your needs. These writers will also be able to provide your blog readers with informative, entertaining content that ties your product or products into other subjects of broad general interest, such as philosophy, history, art, science, movies, television, and music.

Adding a Human Touch to Business Blog Writing

Friday, December 27, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths

If some reports are to be believed, SEO content writing as we currently understand it is on the way out. It has been said that within two years or so, Google and other companies will have developed software that will weed out links that boost their search engine rankings by clever use of keywords and links. What can you do to adapt to the changing nature of blogging and business?

Writing blog posts successfully really comes down to three things - SEO, research, and the ability to connect with your audience. Let’s tackle these in order. To begin with, SEO is going to remain an important element in business blogging – while measures may be taken to limit abuse of SEO techniques, using the phrases readers are searching for is still going to be essential to using your blog to ensure that your business is at the top of search engine results, and thus, able to reach current and prospective clients.

Research is important in order to give substance to your posts – roughly speaking, only about 25% of the total time for the creation of a blog post should be devoted to writing it. At a minimum, you (or writers you hire) should be aiming to devote 50% of the time invested in blog creation to researching the topic to be discussed and planning how it will be presented to your readers. As mentioned above, research enables your posts to have substance – it will contain information relevant to the needs of your readers, rather than just being machine-generated web spam designed to achieve high search-engine rankings.

Finally, you (or writers you hire) need to be able to connect with your audience. You (or writers you hire) need to know what information they are likely to be seeking out and how to make sure that this information is presented in a manner most likely to reach the greatest possible number of said readers.

Why You May Want to Outsource

Thursday, December 26, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths

Outsource Content WritingOutsource content writing is something that many employers rely on these days, and it may be of advantage to those employers who don’t currently outsource blog writing. Our post about Top Advantages of Outsourcing Content Creation has a handy list of reasons why you may want to consider outsourcing content creation for your blog or blogs:

(1) Reduced time expenditure – you can hire as many article writers as needed on a temporary basis, and avoid causing your permanent employees unneeded stress that results in diminished productivity.

(2) Article writers are skilled – professional writers tend to be those who have a high aptitude for creating written content,

(3) Reduced monetary expenditure – hiring people as needed is less expensive than investing in hiring, training and providing benefits to full-time staff.

(4) Greater topical diversity – a pool of professional writers will be able to create content uniquely well-suited to different groups that you may want to reach as you work to expand your business.

(5) Amazing results – skilled SEO writers quickly produce content that is both pleasurable to read and which has immediately observable results on your web traffic.

(6) Assisting with e-advertising – companies dedicated to the production of SEO content will be able to handle all aspects of the process of planning and executing that content.

(7) You do less work – if you’re a business owner, your time and attention are probably already stretched pretty thin. Outsourcing content writing can help you focus on more essential matters and have less overall stress.

How to Write Excellent Material and Avoid Disappointing Sales

Wednesday, December 25, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths

Business BloggingEvery sensible business owner wants a sound return on their initial investment – that is simply good business, and people who ignore this cardinal rule of business will fail (regardless of their intentions). If you wish to ensure that the money you spend on content creation for your business’s website is money well-spent, there are a few things you should focus on. If you do focus on these simple rules found on our Tips to Avoid Poor Content Creation page, you will be more likely to avoid sluggish web sales:

(1) Just like in school, plagiarism makes for failure – if you see someone doing something successful, don’t simply ape them. While clever rewording of the original material can get you good search engine results, readers will see through your tricks and go elsewhere.

(2) Don’t overload your readers – when presenting information on a topic, keep it as bare bones as possible. If readers feel overwhelmed, they are likely to shut off and you will have missed an opportunity to connect to a customer.

(3) Use social media – avoid the temptation to regard Facebook, Twitter and the like as frivolous diversions. If you make sure that your website is compatible with various popular social media sites, this will make it easy for people to relay information about your company and products via social media. Needless to say, the rewards will be ample.

It really is as simple as that. Many people impair their own performance when writing blog posts because of an irrational sense that blog writing is just too hard. Nothing could be further from the truth – ultimately, your success or failure is in your hands.

Five Steps to Great Blog Writing

Thursday, July 18, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths

So many blogs out there on the Internet, but so little time to read them all! This is how the World Wide Web looks from a users' standpoint, and this is why you've got to “stay on the ball” so to speak when it comes to blogging.

There are a few steps you can take to make sure that you 1) increase the traffic to your blog and 2) keep users interested and returning.

  • You need to make sure that your grammar skills are as sharp as they once were. If not, brush up on them before publishing your blog posts. Utilize spell check if needed, and double check each draft before approval.
  • Research as much as you can on the topic at hand. A professional blogger is expected to know what he or she is talking about when they claim information as fact. Cite your sources for certain claims to strengthen the validity of what you've posted.
  • Include pictures or videos in your blog when you can. Using different forms of media to get your point across makes your blog feel much more interactive; it also sets yours apart from standard blogs that only include text.
  • Promote your blog whenever you can. Those closest to you will probably be interested in what you're doing. If they're impressed, they will pass the URL along to others – usually to people who would find your blog extremely relevant to their own lives.
  • Step outside of your comfort zone. Ask for advice and feedback on your blog, and take constructive criticism for what it is. Look for different ways to spice things up. In fact, you've already taken this step by reading this article about writing blog posts. Easy, don't you think?

Five Tips for Blog Writing

Wednesday, July 17, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths

Business blog writing, like most activities worth much of anything, requires knowing a few tips to ensure success. To help you along the way, here are five steps for creating a great business blog while delivering information that clients/customers find valuable:

  1. Define your target audience. Think about the type of service or product you provide. Who most often expresses interest in this service or product? Write your blogs as if you know your audience intimately. A great example is if you sell organic food. Likely, you're targeting individuals who feel strong about the state of the environment, so make sure to bring up these concepts in your blog.
  2. Do your research. This one is absolutely essential. You cannot profess to be an expert on a certain topic regarding your business and then publish incorrect information online. This could really make or break your company's reputation – so let's aim to make it, okay? 
  3. Make a list of blog topics beforehand. Take a few hours one day to brainstorm ideas for your blog posts. You could come up with enough ideas for a month so that you don't have to spend extra time each day to think up more of them.
  4. Recognize the areas where your product or business is most popular. An example is if you notice the majority of your live in San Diego, California. If you sell, say, used clothes, you could then start using keyword phrases like “used clothes in San Diego.” SEO content writing increases traffic.
  5. Make use of a calendar to keep on track with all of your blog posts and their editing. A calendar will keep you informed as to when blogs need to be published. This is an easy way to reduce the stress of being a blog content writer.

More Tips on Unique Product Descriptions

Tuesday, July 2, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths

Product descriptions must be unique in order to set the products themselves apart from their competition online, but the descriptions must also be technically clever. Indeed, unique product descriptions can intelligently utilize literary tropes, such as metaphorical language and references to ideas outside of the scope of the product's explicit function, in order to build a rich reading experience for the shopper. At the same time, using a trick to identify the product to a search engine and to make it appear quickly to somebody searching for specific aspects of the product is also a key to its successful marketing.

For example, including the manufacturer code unique to the product is one way to do this; somebody who is searching for an exact product might land directly on the product described by its manufacturer code. Another description enhancement is including synonyms that refer to the product that shoppers might use to describe the product that they're looking for. A loveseat is also a two-cushion couch, a small sofa; it could be mistaken for a daybed, and it's also a piece of intimacy furniture. Consider the various functions that common products can have.

A unique product description also uses words that connect the reader to sensory experiences. The sight of its colors, the quality of its smell, or the tickly feel of its unique textures are all sensations that a reader might strongly remember from a quick reading of the product description. Basic color references can be replaced with comparisons to things in nature that bear the same color, such as the particular apple redness of a product, or the extreme depth of its blueness found only in crystal clear freshwater lakes.

The Importance of Unique Product Descriptions

Monday, July 1, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths

Having unique product descriptions is extremely important in 2013 because so many distributors and vendors online are offering similar products. A unique description ensures that a browsing customer is, to put it strongly, "startled" into a long-lasting, remembered association between the product description and the product. Using rich language filled with interesting and unique ideas captivates the reader's imagination and makes for a shopping experience that stands out against all of the other shopping experiences the reader might have that day, throughout the week, and so forth (and so on).

Unique product descriptions also ensure that the machines which identify, catalogue, and anchor the content into search engines have original material that separates products and services from the competition. A listless or misleading product description can bury the product or service underneath its many competitors on the Internet. It can also drive away potential clients or customers, who can come away from their browsing experience confused or unimpressed with the quality implicit in the writing of the product description.

While using buzzwords and phrases loaded with marketing meaning, such as “sale,” “super cheap,” “lightning-fast delivery,” are all good ways to sell products, filling the descriptions with ideas that point to imagery and associations outside of the products themselves create a unique browsing experience that sets readers' minds in motion. When describing a pair of shoes, for instance, the description might point out its selling points, such as the affordability of the pair of shoes, the quality of the materials, or the good deal on its shipping. Also, try including a little story about how one person wore those shoes in a run through nature that ended with an exciting twist can make a simple pair of shoes more memorable to the shopper, who might return to buy them later on. This is just one example of the many possibilities.

Promoting Business On The Global Digital Stage

Wednesday, June 19, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths

In the present decade, business is done as readily online as it is in the traditional storefront – and the nature of that business is practically unbounded in terms of its products and services. Consulting as well crafts can be packaged and distributed on a physical, local level just as easily as it can be created and distributed to virtually any place on Earth. Blogging and business now go hand in hand, for in order to create a presence for a business in the extremely populated digital marketplace, a blog is almost required.

Blogging and business work well together because a blog is an easy platform from which to discuss the product or service, as well as to make clear the personality and professionalism of the business itself. Potential customers can look to the blog to get a feel for the kind of presence that the business intends to have in the marketplace. A poorly written blog devoid of ideas of references to ideas, or that is badly executed and full of errors, can damage the reputation of the business. On the other hand, a rich, intelligent blog, full of insight and practical advice can add value to the product itself and give potential customers something to take away from the time spent just browsing, shopping around or comparing products and services. A rich blog can leave a potential customer with something memorable that creates an association in that customer's mind between the experience he or she enjoyed while exploring the product or service, and the actual product or service itself.

Streaming Content From The Mindspace

Tuesday, June 18, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths

Using content creation tools when writing product descriptions is a tricky affair. Unfortunately, content creation tools are driven by artificial intelligences or at least rely on algorithmic processing to generate content in quantity that safely passes benchmarks to ensure its uniqueness. The solution is to write in the manner of stream-of-consciousness, drawing from a brain full of experiences on this planet and from explorations of the mind within the body itself. Putting ideas onscreen as a steady flow is a habit that takes practice but quickly develops and becomes natural. Understandably, writers are inhibited by their own fears of inadequacy and by notions of judgment by their audience and by critics which they internalize and begin to emulate in their own minds.

Instead of content creation tools that rely on essentially what amount to being robots, writers can look into the content of their daily lives to find substance worth writing about. A writer can remember an interesting encounter he or she had at the grocery store:

A middle-aged woman asks a passing stocking clerk, "Oh, well, I'm not going to buy this tomato sauce, because it says it has aspartame in it. Doesn't aspartame cause cancer or boils, something like that?"

The clerk replies, "I'm not sure about that. Where does it say it has aspartame in it?"

The woman blinks, and squints at the label. "I, well, it said somewhere here. Maybe I didn't see that? I guess I just looked at it wrong."

"There's no aspartame in that sauce," the clerk says, smiling. "I'm pretty sure nobody adds aspartame to spaghetti sauce."

"Oh," says the woman. "Well, can you make your own sauce, do you think, sort of just with ketchup?"

The clerk says, "I don't know. Ketchup is maybe the wrong way to go about it."

The woman blinks and nods her head, and then she thanks the clerk. She goes on down the aisle, the tomato sauce left sitting on the shelf.

And here content has been created, ideas infused, with little more than a quick recall of a casual encounter in a grocery store. Someone motivated enough could take this info and turn it into content on a blog (and look, we just did it). The kind of creative content that consumers actually enjoy reading is not typically generated by A.I.

The Iceberg Of Content Creation

Monday, June 17, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths

In the year 2013 products and services are available right next door, in your local market (as always); but those products and services are as accessible just as quickly even if their physical location is anywhere else on the planet. The way that those products and services now find a path through the wilderness of the global marketplace and to your attention in front of your PC, mobile phone or any other flatscreen terminal of your wildest dreams, is by leveraging content creation.

In order to bring ideas to the attention of the search engines, marketers rely on content creation to build out a presence for the product or service on the Internet. Content creation fills up the empty space surrounding the product or service with media rich material, so that human beings and robots have plenty of densely packed terrain into which they may drop anchor.

Content creation relies on human brains whose wrinkles emerge from exposure to fine art, popular culture, history, anthropology, religion and science. By utilizing a diversity of references rich with ideas and perspectives, content becomes a dynamic, living experience for its human readers and the machines who sample it. Content shouldn't just be the same recycled drivel written carelessly at the drop of a hat; instead it should be thoughtful layers of expression and critical thinking that add value to an Internet reading experience and that fill the artificial intelligences with that soulful breadth that is unique to the collective human consciousness. You, the reader, shouldn't be driven away by boring text abandoned by philosophy and commentary. That's why this particular service relies on the best minds on the planet to thrive.

Small Businesses Need Blog Writers

Friday, June 14, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths
Running a small business is fun, exciting and sometimes scary. The work can be overwhelming at times and a small business owner might be tempted to try to handle all aspects of his or her business alone. This approach just doesn't work for most people. However, a business owner can't just ignore the value of using promotional blog content. Blogs support the business in many ways, both directly and with regard to business presence in search engines.
A business blog is a refined, technical and professional body of content. It's not just fluff, gossip and the opinions of a crazy, lonely writer who sits around in a terrycloth robe. The blog contains information that customers actually find useful and come to rely on for consistency and accuracy. At the same time, with respect to the terrycloth, a good blog contains an appropriate amount of creative and imaginative material to keep the readers interested. A good blog makes sure that readers keep clicking for more and that they keep coming back over time.
Using a service that writes blogs professionally will make sure that you have people working hard to support your bottom line through content writing while you take care of business and focus on the clients themselves. Finding a good service means that you have writers who have mastered a diversity of techniques and styles in order to keep your blog as fresh as possible, rich with references to art, history, science and popular culture, while at the same time full of useful, accurate information that your readers really need.

Advantages Of Writing Your Own Blog Content

Thursday, June 13, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths
Keeping a blog is a great way to promote your enterprise. However, good blogging is time consuming and labor intensive. Due to to the work involved and because some people just don't enjoy writing or aren't that good at it, many business owners look to freelancers to handle the writing for their marketing content. 
One reason to hire a blogger is to minimize time that you spend on writing. You can dedicate the time that you save to focusing on your product or service. Additionally, you can concentrate more on your clients instead of your marketing and establish a richer relationship with the people who do business with you.
Also, you can focus on creating new content that isn't necessarily writing. You might want to produce videos, make presentations, publish webinars, or organize promotional events. If you leave the writing to writers, you'll have lots more time to promote your business in other ways.
However, it isn't always the case that hiring a writer is the best way to go about creating a business blog. Here are a few reasons why:
  • Simply put, it's expensive. Good freelance work comes at a premium and sometimes small business owners can't afford that expense. Doing the writing yourself will save money in the end. 
  • Also, it could threaten your credibility if you publish content with your name on it that in fact is not your own writing. 
  • Finally, someone blogging for you from outside your company probably won't have the understanding of your business that you or someone working you directly has. 
In the end, you'll have to decide between writing your own marketing content or hiring writers to handle the work. It's not just a black and white issue, though: You also have the option to take care of some of the work and to offload projects you just can't accommodate in your schedule to outside writers. Finding the balance that suits your needs is the key to a shared work solution.

Focusing On Your Human Readership

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths
A leading researcher of Internet search technology famously predicted in 2012 that SEO practices as we understand them in 2013 would be fundamentally different by 2015. The major players in the search industry, such as Google, would reposition the search technologies so that content geared exclusively to gain rank status in the search engines would be identified as such and its effect on search results minimized. 
That's not to say that keywords and sophisticated techniques involving linking won't mean anything anymore. However, they will only be responsibly for a minor percentage of the final results. Instead, links pointing directly to the content and direct referrals from social media will drive the search results. 
To be clear, content marketing is how businesses reach out to potential new clients and expose their brand. Blogging, social media, multimedia content (such as Youtube) and digital publications like eBooks and slideshows are all elements of contemporary content marketing. In conjunction with content marketing is SEO, or search engine optimization. SEO is the art of optimizing content and a business web presence to ensure searchers see the business at the top of the list when using search engines. This means that good SEO has to account for the many terms and phrases searchers might use to look for your product or service. Content must be optimized to match for specific vocabulary.
The best content marketing relies heavily on thorough, competent research. In fact, the best writers only spend about a quarter of their time doing the actual writing. At least half of the total time should go to research and planning around the content. This ensures that the information presented by the content is something that human readers will value and come to rely on and not just something that the machines recognize for the search engines.
The other point to focus on for good content marketing is the audience. The best content focuses on the clients, both current and prospective. That means that style, voice and context is critical when targeting your readership. Choosing the right topic, putting the content in the preferred format, and using a voice that matches the personalities of your readership are all crucial to successful content marketing. 

Why Working With Freelancers Is Crucial Today

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths
Nowadays nearly all companies need fresh marketing material in traditional and electronic formats. Many people who start up their own businesses attempt to take care of producing all of this content themselves. As a business gets larger, however, its founder simply won't have the time to do all of that work personally. That's why reaching out to professionals who produce content as freelancers is crucial in order to grow a business beyond the seedling stage. Here are a few reasons why that is:
  • You'll add professionalism to your content by keeping it free of errors. Clients need to know that your work is the best and they'll look to the promotional content that your company to uses for their first impressions of your quality. If the writing in your company's advertisements is sloppy, potential customers will logically assume that your product or your service is second rate as well.
  • You'll freshen up your image by adding diverse points of view to the content that promotes your brand. If you produce all of the marketing and advertising content for your company by hand, you'll be at risk of trapping yourself in a limited voice, style or perspective. Good freelance writers know how to mix up content to keep it exciting and ensure that it refers to numerous ideas stemming from art, literature, science, history and popular culture.
Best of all, you'll save yourself time that you can use to developing your product, working with clients and growing your business. You probably won't be able to dedicate enough time to advertising and marketing to ensure fresh content on a regular basis. Freelancers can deliver new material quickly and consistently so that your marketing material can match changing needs. In this way you'll show your clients that you have the knowledge and the resources to meet their changing demands, too. 

Knowing Your Blogging Audience

Monday, June 10, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths
Despite complaints to the contrary, the Internet is full of excellent content. The writers of that content don't always have an easy time with their writing, however. A lot of times a growing process is necessary before their content graduates from mediocre fluff to actually good stuff. One issue common to all writers is the struggle to understand their readership.
Business blogging has its own set of rules. Writers in this category must keep the consumer of the content first in mind. It is important that the writer clearly defines the type of reader that the blog targets before the writing starts. Then the writer can focus on using the right language that works effectively with the psychology of the readership. 
Many times a writer can accidentally fall into the habit of shaping his or her writing using the language and themes that he or she prefers personally. This can be a mistake, and you should avoid this pitfall by keeping the target audience in mind. If you're writing about the wedding cake industry and hoping to target small business owners whose product is the wedding cake, then don't focus your blog on how to increase traffic to your blog. Keep the focus on the wedding cake industry. If you prefer a specific kind of wedding cake, remember that your readership probably likes other kinds and styles of cakes. Don't pigeonhole yourself before you get a chance to address every aspect of the topic that you're writing about.
If you're writing on behalf of a specific business so that its readers are clients of that business, then remember to focus on the content. If the business is web design but the business owner really wants to target local small businesses, then write about topics that touch on aspects of doing business in a local setting and themes that set small business owners apart from big corporations. Don't write about the technical side of web design.
At the same time, don't let your ideas go to waste. If you find yourself suddenly in the middle of a bunch of text that is well written and rich with information, but that has lost the focus of the article, then put that writing aside in a safe place. Later you can use that writing in a different way. This not only keeps your productivity at a maximum, but lets you have material with which to branch out later on.
Make sure you pay attention to data that describes the readership of the blog. This is why analytics applications are useful. Find out where the readers are coming from, what technologies they use and how much time they usually spend reading. Also, pay close attention to comments that the content attracts. Use reader interaction to shape your blog around the personalities and preferences of the readership.
Knowing your audience and staying on track with your writing will keep your readership coming back for content that they've grown to trust.

The Best Blogs Say It Straight-Up

Friday, June 7, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths
Imagine being at your workspace about to write a new blog post. You're all dressed up in your favorite thinking clothes and you have your favorite “successful blogger” hat firmly on your head. Everything is going great so far and all the grammar is perfectly in order. The problem is that you haven't even made your point yet and you find yourself totally out of new words to put on the screen.
This happens to a lot of writers. A writer can't help but want to be “writerly” and to show off his or her unique, “writerly” voice; that is, the writer's stylized way with the language that is described by how the writer paces his or her ideas, how the ideas unfold through word choice, and which kinds of devices to use in order to show the reader ideas rather then lining those ideas up explicitly and in literal language. When blogging, readers actually want the writing to get to its points quickly and to elucidate its information clearly, without running away into metaphor land, where exotic words fill the page with shades of meaning.
Check out these quick tips to get your writing into line for maximum impact:
  • Use fewer lengthy clauses and prepositional phrases so that your sentences have impact, communicate fast and are clear. 
  • State your point quickly in the article and don't feel obligated to dress it up with extra-colorful language. Further in the text you can play around with imagery, but don't lose the reader's attention before you've made the point in a way that hits hard and isn't obscure. On the other hand:
  • Don't be afraid to explore interesting language after you've made a clear point. You shouldn't avoid descriptive or imaginative language altogether. Use it in a balanced, appropriate way to make the text unique and feel alive without going overboard.
  • Write a draft that flows directly from your brain to the page; get a lot of language on the screen that comes in your  mental stream quickly and without censorship. After you get your ideas onscreen, then change your focus to brevity and clarity. Go through the text to eliminate extraneous language. Clean up rambling, tighten up the grammar and make the grammatical logic perfect. Seeing the writing as a two-step process starting with lots of words and ideas and cutting it down on a second pass through the text ensures that you've tapped your imagination to the fullest.
In the end, you want to make sure your article works elegantly, like a well-oiled machine. Optimizing your texts will add to their value by making them into a writing product that readers trust and that your clients can count on, too.

How To Go About Blogging For Businesses

Thursday, June 6, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths
All wordsmiths understand from experience that a shiny, empty flatscreen devoid of content is one's own worst nightmare when a deadline is coming at you like a freight train. In today's marketplace, brand exposure is fueled predominantly by raw data and analysis. A writer can beat the feeling of being trapped in a sterile, impersonal assignment by using his or her creative interests to carve out the content of an article from the industry-specific or narrowly technical bedrock of the topic.
This approach works regardless of whether one is delivering content for multiple clients on a fixed schedule, or if one is aiming to launch a blog of one's own. Whatever the case, a writer needs an unobstructed view of the playing field and a plan to ensure success, all without the risk of a nervous breakdown and the need for a  mental health support team (but a team is useful, too). Here a few good points to keep in mind when planning one's strategy:
  • A writer shouldn't fear delving into the geekier side of the topic on occasion. In a business article, the writer is the expert on the offerings of the enterprise, so the writer should understand the liberty he or she has to speak out about the detailed, topical knowledge he or she has on the subject. It's true that too technical of an article can drive the readership away, but on the other hand, most readers want to learn something factually accurate and useful from the items that they choose to read.
  • A writer should have reference to a broad range of topics in the arts, humanities and popular culture. Staying aware of items of popular interest that gives his or her content a timely feel is important. The writer should be able to refer to monolithic examples of art and literature, as well as minutiae that he or she personally has found interesting throughout his or her own reading and viewing experiences.
  • A good idea is to schedule one's content around milestones in order to make sure one delivers the content on time and with a good balance of creative elements of technical elements. This gives the writer breathing room to ensure that the content is couched well in writing that reflects some outside research or complementary ideas that the writer brings to the table. It also makes sure the final product is on time. The writer can also set up the milestones so that each allotment of content is not just a quantity of words, but also an outline of creative ideas that the writer prepares ahead of time and then builds out in writing
  • In the end, one should make sure that one doesn't lose readership and push clients away by delivering writing that seems to be too repetitive.

Understanding a Content Marketing Platform

Wednesday, June 5, 2013 by Jackson Griffiths
On a regular basis, consumers are bombarded with a wealth of information. This information can come from anywhere – from Facebook to the Wall Street Journal to the local grocer down the block. The goal of a content marketing platform is to integrate all of these outlets so that the information comes in through a single channel instead of assaulting you from every direction. An example of this would be a platform which allows you to post to Facebook and Twitter at the same time while sending an email to your boss. Sounds a bit futuristic, huh?
Content marketing platforms have become increasingly important. So what is it you should think about or look for in one?
  1. The perfect content marketing platform should allow you to rid yourself of the need for notebooks, pens, folders, etc. because it will contain everything within it.
  2. If you're using one of these platforms to allow others to post writing, you'll want to allow some flexibility in the content. You'll also want to make sure you have a sufficient number of editors so that content quality doesn't suffer.
  3. The content marketing platform should fully and smoothly integrate all the platforms you need in to one. This also requires conversion from platform to platform, e.g. being able to access it via email vs. being able to access it via search.
The best platform is the one that measures results. If you can't tell that traffic has increased, workflow has improved, and transition is seamless... how can you know your content marketing platform is worthwhile?
