I’m writer-heavy this week, but it’s for a good reason.
After checking out all the great posts on the web this week, I realized something (or perhaps I just finally decided to say it out loud). Every single person who is writing about whatever they’re writing about needs to know how to write well. Otherwise, no one is going to read it.
That’s not all…
Whether you’re just starting out and don’t have a ton of funds to hire a writer, and a designer, and a web developer – or you’ve been doing whatever you’re doing for a while now – you need to understand the fundamental advantages that being able to write within your industry – for your industry – brings.
Because then comes something else: after you’ve practiced your writing so that you’re writing well, (about a topic your audience cares about), then you’ll need to figure out how people are going to find your writing so they can read it.
So, whether you’re a writer, a podcaster, a web developer, a designer, a videographer or any other number of wonderful things you can be, I think it’s important to have a good understanding of what writing can do for you, for your business, if done well.
“Say what? I want to read that!” <— That’s me when I saw the title to this post written by Carrie Morgan for the Convince & Convert blog. This is a great post, especially for bloggers who might just be starting out. Carrie talks about the importance of sharing your work, and also points out 3 ways you can help ensure your SEO is spot-on.
Start with the right attitude, then add great resources – including CopyBlogger posts and timeless books on writing – and then top it off with tips on how to develop a practice for your writing. After all, we could all use a little practice. A perfect combination of all the right stuff makes this post by Pamela Wilson a must read.
You probably think we use HubSpot‘s services for how often I feature one of their blog posts. We don’t. I just love their no-strings-attached approach to providing relevant and valuable information. Pamela Vaughan shares one little secret in this post that could make a huge difference: a 128% difference. Why didn’t I think of that?
I know this is a short list given all the great content out there. What did I miss? If you read a great post on the web this week about writing, share with us in the comments section below!
