How To Do Content Writing - Right!

Last Update: October 18, 2018

I've been working hard on my niche-focused blog for several weeks now and I'm starting to gain altitude with my content. Let me share what I've learned about how to do content writing effectively!

Bold Your Headings.

Sometimes the headings are automatically bold, but it's worth double-checking them to make sure. Bold headings helps break up text and avoid having what I call "pain-point" when it comes to visitors reading your content.

Break Paragraphs Up.

Paragraphs should be 1-3 sentences to avoid having "pain-point", and it helps even more to have an occasional short sentence in bold. This section of the post you're reading right now has been set up to illustrate this point.

Images can help too.

Relevant photos or graphics can do a lot to help with this too. Pixabay is one of my favorite places to find royalty-free images to use in your posts.

Offer Sincere Help.

Too many times I see affiliate marketing bloggers with loads of potential waste it all on trying to sell instead of offering to help.

When you successfully help someone, they value that and naturally desire to thank you somehow. This can result in affiliate sales from visitors to your blog that are willing and motivated to make a purchase since you helped them!

Don't let a silly thing like money rob you of commissions.

Pamela Vaughan, an author on HubSpot, has a great (and hilarious) post on how to write horrible content. Point #2 is worth paying attention to... actually, ALL of the points are excellent.

Another great post on this topic is one that I wrote a few days ago. You can read it here.

Speaking of help...

It is my sincerest hope that you found this post helpful. I'd love to hear your thoughts and anything you've learned so far in your own journey as a member of Wealthy Affiliate.
