​10 tips to create better content

Content Creation

  • Use content marketing schedule. A schedule is important to ensure that you are in line with your publishing goals. For your readers, a schedule would be so heavenly as they know exactly when the next big post is going live (minus the guessing game).
  • Keep all your ideas (regardless how small they are) in a safe place. I use Evernote to store all my ideas. You have no idea when those ideas will come in handy one day. And when you experience writer’s block, fire open your favorite note taking app and find those ideas of yours.
  • Keeping tabs on your favorite content. The next time you read something interest, make it a point to save the article either in your favorite reading app such as Pocket. I use these contents to speed up my blogging creation.
  • Use a pre-made template or blogging blueprints. I know some content writers use pre-made templates for all their blog posts. This is an excellent way to speed up your content creation (instead of staring at the computer for a while 60 minutes, wondering how to start the opening paragaph).
  • Outline your post for faster content creation. Because it prevents you going into myriad irrelevant directions. With outlining, you know exactly what you want to blog about and when you have that going, blogging will be a brisk. Trust me on that.
  • Find the best time to write. I find myself writing better and faster in the early mornings compared to any other time of the day. Writing at the best time usually allows you to produce better content (at least for me).
  • Write in advance. Always have a spare post which is ready for publication; just in case if you are out of town, taking a few days off or just short of time. I usually keep three articles ready to be published just in case.
  • When there is mood, you should keep on writing. Do you stop right after finishing a blog post? You shouldn’t! Instead, you should continue to write a new blog post if you are in the right mood.
  • Hit publish only after a few days. After checking the post for grammatical mistakes, don’t hit publish yet! Leave it for a few days in the draft and go back to it to have the last read. Most of the time, you will find additional information to add to the blog post.
  • Use a timer (or be really strict with time). I hate distraction during writing and when I write, I go into silent mode. No Facebook, phone on silent and no replying to email. It is just plain blogging … and me.

Having the 10 blogging tips above certainly felt good, right?
