Today is going to be a DAY of content...you might be getting a sense that content is important. However it doesn't have to be tough and it should feel completely natural to write.
The biggest fear people have when writing...
Is not being perfect. I can tell you from personal experience that perfect doesn't convert, in fact it doesn't even exist. What you write, what ideas you have, and how you form your content is RIGHT...and it will work for you.
A few suggestions I have for you when you sit down to write your content:
- Don’t constrain yourself, come up with the ideas first and then write it out.
- Break a page down into smaller ideas, then write it
- Don't try to perfect your content.
- Enjoy what you are writing about and have fun with it.
- Exercise or get some fresh air before your write content (trust me on this one)
Writing and the creation of content is going to be quintessential to your success when getting up and running with your business. Content leads to rankings, branding, trust...traffic...and ultimately success. So being able to sit down and write content without worrying about perfection is important.
I want to leave you with a famous quote today before we get into the tasks.
"In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure."
This should apply to your writing. Don't fear a failed article, focus on your desired success. The only thing that you can do to move closer to perfection, is practice. So write regularly, write fearlessly, and write from your own perspective!
Alright, lets get into the daily tasks... :)
Task 1: Read this thread on Customer Purchase Lifecycle
If you understand who your customers are and how the lifecyle works, you are going to be able to much better deliver the content.
Who are the people that are interested in Wealthy Affiliate and how do they react the way they do within the online world. What makes someone jump at an opportunity, what would make someone join something for free (remember, there is lots of free stuff out there), and what would make them decide to become a premium member.
READ TUTORIAL: The Customer Purchase Lifecycle
When you understand the process someone goes into when joining Wealthy Affiliate, what they are thinking and looking at your processes and your content objectively in a "humanized" way, you are going to be much more successful as an affiliate creating customers! (that is, money in your account)
Task 2: Write Out Your Themed Pages
The next task is going to be writing out your themed pages. Write the content from your hip (naturally). Remember your goal here, to create content that is engaging to your customer. Sit back and read your content from an outsiders perspective after you write it.
And remember to publish it after you write it, don't try to perfect your content and definitely don't leave a bunch of pages in "draft" mode before you publish.
Here is an example of one of the themed pages I have written on my site.
==> Build a Successful Website (Written)
Task 3: Join in on the Theme Discussion if You Need Theme Help
If you need ideas or you need someone to have a look at your content, don't be afraid to post it within the followin discussion thread.
DISCUSSION: Need Help or Want to Share Your Content?
This can be great for getting feedback from others on your content and getting an outside perspective of what will constitute helpful content.
