Content writing is a crucial part of any marketing strategy. Writing with clarity and purpose will make your business stand out. But where do you start? How is it supposed to sound? These are questions that stump new writers – but fear not! Read on for our best tips to help you write your first piece.

 

Consider your audience

First, you’ll need to think about who you’re writing for. Are you trying to reach other businesses or the general public? Does your audience already know your industry? This will help you determine the language and tone of your writing. For example, writing to the public would mean less technical jargon and a more conversational tone. However, if you’re writing to other businesses in your field, you’ll want to use technical terms to appear knowledgeable.

A tip for writing for a specific audience is to imagine yourself in their shoes. What tone would you want to read if you were another business or a potential customer?

 

Do research

If you’re writing about something that you don’t know much about, do some research beforehand. This will save you from minor mistakes. But, you’ll need to be careful. Make sure you don’t steal any ideas from the research you do. Rather than thinking of researching as answers, think of it as a guideline.

 

Draft first

The hardest part of writing can be getting started. It might be hard for you to decide what to write or how to write it. We’ve found that the easiest way to start is to write whatever comes to your head. Even if it isn’t your best work, it’s easier to edit a bad page than edit a blank page. 

Write down the things you want to say first and follow your train of thought wherever it goes. Then, expand and clean up your writing afterward. You may develop new ideas about what you want to communicate to your audience even as you write.

 

If you’re still stumped, consider reaching out to the professionals. We offer many content writing services to our clients at Fuhrman Creative. See our website to learn more about what we offer or request a proposal.
