Do you ever feel when you open up a certain blog or an article; you feel as if you have been smacked with monotonous data that makes you fall asleep.
That’s one of the core problems with the internet lately where an array of writers has taken it up to themselves to bore the life out of you.
They have armed themselves with lackluster armor to present the already existent information without adding a story or a theme to it.
This takes away the attention of the reader from the content and he is more likely to move on to other platforms.
Quality always wins over Quantity
It’s always preferable to go quality over quantity.
One of the most basic principles of writing content is to present the information in a direct and concise manner.
In this fast-paced life of ours, we wouldn’t want to waste our time sulking and scrolling through long feeds of boring and disoriented information.
Just like in every industry, content development also demands a connection through which the writer can express the information to the targeted audience.
The connection is built through the underlying story that breathes life to your content.
Thus, a writer should always remember to write content which invokes the reader to learn new information along with making the reader’s attention worthwhile with well-placed questions,
From blogs, articles, news to press releases, it’s highly demanding that the writer is conscious of the reader’s needs.
Take the example of a famous magazine like ‘Cosmopolitan’.
Their content is highly appreciated by the readers as they use certain essentials like tonality, underlying themes and including pop culture references.
They strictly maintain their tone of voice across their content which makes it easy for the readers to register their brand language.
Words can be more than what they mean
Thousands of blogs are being published every day, but not everyone gets the desirable viewership.
Due to the presence of digital technology, everyone can be a writer nowadays.
But what separates a great content from the normal is the use of creative elements such that words can be more than what they mean.
A well-written blog can make you feel an array of emotions, help you introspect and learn more about yourself.
Such content tends to stay with you days after you’ve read it.
The art of content development is tricky.
It’s not just about writing and presenting information to the audience.
It involves the art of story-telling.
A consumer hunts for a story that can encompass information along with entertainment.
Take the example of research papers.
Most of the people who read it are scientist themselves or belong to the scientific industry.
The general audience is not much interested in such technical papers because they lack readability and simplicity.
The people prefer to consume content just like their food; well-flavored and spicy.
Quality content inspires and understands the reader
Every crappy piece of content shares the same ingredients – no thought-provoking dialogues and monotonous information that’s already lying unattended across various platforms.
It’s always helpful to make your own spin on a story, add your perception (if allowed under the type of content you’re writing) and give space for the readers to comprehend what you’ve shared.
It adds personal stories to attract the reader’s attention
Make sure to add your personal stories to your content.
It makes your content relatable and friendly to your readers.
Use your stories to share moments of your life that syncs with the theme of your content.
The quality of your content is judged by its readability and ability to connect with the readers on a personal level.
Well-written content communicates to the reader’s heart
Why would anyone want to invest their time reading your blogs or articles?
There are a thousand other places they can attend to for their needs.
The answer really focuses on what your content is bringing into the table.
From readability to accessibility, well-structuredness and intention helps elicit a deep emotion in the reader’s heart.
The content thus stays longer in his memory and is more likely to be read by other people.
For every writer and the aspiring talents, make sure your content adds to the beauty of literature.
Write not for the sake of writing and getting paid, but do so with heart and soul.
Write with as much of originality so that you can help people learn something new and get inspired.
Get out of your mental cages and innovate new styles and techniques.
