Read and Write More

  • Identify your niche: Niche is any topic or category that interests you. It is something that you love to read about, talk about in your social circle and you are always up-to-date about it. Health and fitness, Technology, Digital Marketing, Lifestyle, and beauty, etc. are some of the most popular niches that people write on. So, explore your personality and pick your niche accordingly.
  • Perform thorough research: Once you have identified your core niche, you can start researching it. Subscribe to newsletters from authority websites i.e., which have a good online reputation, videos, etc. As we are living in a digitized world, there’s no lack of information available. So, make optimum usage of online and offline resources before you start writing.
  • Build a structure and then write: Once you have enough information w.r.t your piece, design a proper content creation strategy relevant to your topic. A defined structure not only makes your content more presentable in the eyes of your audience but is good from the SEO point as well. As is said:

De-clutter Your Mind

  • Conduct user/audience surveys regularly to learn what your audience is thinking.

Talk it Through

Be an Unbiased Critic of your Work

  • Once I have written my post, I go back and DELETE my opening and closing paragraphs.
  • Take a break to re-look at the content doc later with a fresh mindset and perspective.
  • The momentary break enhances my productivity and allows me to create a better copy of the opening and closing paragraphs

Your Location Matters — Choose it Wisely

  • Play some music to untangle your mind
  • Step out of your workplace and take a walk-in or around nature
