How to Become a Good Content Writer? – 7 Killer Steps

How to Become a Good Content Writer

Become a good content writer to boost your online income!

If you want to earn money online you will need to generate content. LOTS OF CONTENT. If you can do it well, you will succeed. If not, you won’t.

Today I am going to give you 7 killer steps on how to become a good content writer.

Writing is a skill that anyone can learn well. No one does it perfectly when they born but some people keep on improving and practicing and that’s why they succeed.

1.Practice, Practice, Practice.

You won’t become a writer by swimming or singing. You need to write to become a writer! The expert of every field has used 10,000 hours practicing the subject, so if you want to become one of the best writers you will need to write a lot.

I really recommend you to write every day because then writing will become your other nature and over the time you will just notice how the text just flows from your fingers. I can say that from my  own and other people’s experience.

In my opinion, practicing is the most important thing but it is definitely the only thing. If someone would practice writing for 10,000 hours would he/she become automatically the expert? Of course not!

People don’t learn a skill only by doing that. If they would, I guess that there would lots of expert singers in the local karaoke bars. You need to learn the definite “techniques” in singing and the same applies in writing.

2.Know Your Niche, know your audience.

What if I would start talking to you about the chess principles in this website? You would be at least very confused.

But when I am talking about the money making tips, the people will enjoy.

Writing about the right subject is probably the most important thing to keep your readers captivated. I am so interested in “making money online” niche that sometimes I just read the long texts about the subject even though the writer wouldn’t be even the professional.

Even if there wouldn’t be any headlines, images or some other fancy stuff, you can keep your visitors interested in your website if you keep on talking about the things that he/she is interested in.

3.Know SEO principles

Even if you would have the killer content on your website it doesn’t help anyone (and it won’t make your revenue) if now one can find their way to your website.

The best way to get visitors to your website is to get ranked in the search engines.

You need to learn to

In order to learn SEO and to get ranked in Google, I recommend getting the proper education that will explain you step-by-step how you can be #1 in Google.

Learning SEO will save you tons of money and time as you don’t need to use so much time on the paid advertising of your content.

4.Know your platform

When you are writing the content on the Internet, you need to know that the “rules” are a bit different than what they have taught you at school.

We live in the fast tempo online world where the readers want to find the information fast and effectively.

You content needs to be user-friendly and easy to skim through quickly.

You want to use the simple language that people understand and enjoy reading without many efforts. You don’t want to put the reader in the situation when he needs to ponder what you are meaning with your content.

How to Become a Good Content Writer

You are the writer. Be Personal!

5.Be personal

Did you know that you are the world champion? You are the best you (put your name) in this world!

You don’t need to copy anyone’s style. You don’t need to write like J.K.Rowling, Paulo Coelho, Ernest Hemingway or Leo Tolstoy.

People like personal texts because they are more captivating and give clear value for the people.

When you keep on writing with your personal style you are also building your authority.

6.Learn from Your “Mentors”

Although you need to be personal, it doesn’t mean that you couldn’t learn from the others.

Learning from the other writers is extremely crucial if you want to become better.

As you keep on reading the content from the Internet you can catch new ideas anytime.

Maybe you see how someone uses captivating stories that you could use yourself. Maybe someone highlights the important points in his text in a great way. Maybe some writers simplicity impresses you.

The best writer newer stops learning.

You can also ask questions from the professional content writers and many times they are willing to help you.

7.Be Persistent and Consistent

Remember that learning any skill takes time. If you want to become an incredible content writer it won’t happen in two days or two weeks. Some people give up if they don’t see the results immediately.

You just need to keep on writing the articles and all the time think how to improve writing skills.

Becoming a good writer works like earning money online. As you keep on putting the effort into your online business and study the new ways to do it better, it will become better.

Celebrate the milestones that you achieve. Your milestones can be for example,

  • 100 articles written
  • Your article goes viral
  • Your content more  sales than before
  • Your content is ranked #1 in Google
  • Etc.

Think about the goals that you want to achieve as the content writer and as you reach the goal, give yourself something special. Little gifts for yourself will keep you motivated to push forward!

    I must agree with you, writing is so hard at first but once you keep on writing everyday it will become more easy or second nature. One of the keys to being a successful affiliate marketer is to know how to write good content since this in part will determine your traffic flow. I myself am still learning this is still some what new to me but i believe that as i keep at it everyday i will get better and better. Great job on your site.

      Hi Norman,

      That’s an optimal being for an affiliate marketer when writing becomes like a second nature.

      More content -> More traffic -> More REVENUE 😉
