10 Tweetable Tips for Content Writers
Heaven knows the life of a content marketing writer ain’t easy, so we’ve put together 10 tweetable tips, in no particular order, to make your job a little easier.
- Create a visual that represents your target audience persona and have it on your desk while you’re writing. (Tweet this)
- Check out @ScrivenerApp, a great tool for organizing and writing longer content pieces like e-books and white papers. (Tweet this)
- Watch your adverbs. Nine times out of ten, you can eliminate them by choosing a more descriptive verb. (Tweet this)
- Stories are all around you. Keep a notebook handy (or use @Evernote) to jot down those moments as they happen. (Tweet this)
- Write in an easy, natural style. We’re not cranking out term papers here. (Tweet this)
- Stay current. Set up streams in an online reader like @Feedly to keep up with relevant blogs and news sites. (Tweet this)
- Always take a break between rounds of edits, the longer the better. (Tweet this)
- Best way to proofread your work? Have a trusted friend or colleague do it. (Tweet this)
- Repurpose your content: break up large posts into smaller ones and combine shorter pieces to create larger ones. (Tweet this)
- Keep an eye out for ruts. If you find yourself using the same words or taking the same angle over and over again, it’s time to shake things up. (Tweet this)
