15 Content Writing Secrets of Professional Bloggers

Are you a writer? Do you try really hard to write an article but still not get enough user response and feedback? You research for hours and utilize your brain to its fullest and are still not able to produce an effective piece of writing? What if I told you...you are not focusing on the things that need to be focused on? Without knowing what qualitatively affects your written content, how can you produce an effective one? Let me tell you a few of the most important content writing tips you, as a content writer, should know. These are also the various writing etiquettes and techniques used by most professional bloggers which make their writing  very effective. So, instead of blaming and underestimating yourself, focus on these 15 secrets i will be sharing with you in other to improve on your writing ability :

1. Title is what's gets you the Clicks!

For instance, let's say you wrote an amazing article. So, what do you think  that will drive readers to you? The content? The definitions/explanations you gave? The multimedia? NO, it is simply the TITLE or the HEADING that gets you the click. When your the HEADING IS unattractive,  my dear forget about getting user views on that content. Note that, the title should always be brief, direct to the topic of discussion, attractive and tempting, so as to pull the viewer to your article.

2. Write an interesting Lead:

After getting the viewer to your article, it's now the lead or the introductory paragraph that will turn him/her from just being a viewer to an avid or proficient reader. The introduction of any article always have many purposes and you can effectively fulfill them by writing an interesting one. Normally, every viewer always reads the introductory part before ever proceeding his or her reading of other paragraphs of the article. Always, what is written therein (the introductory part) determines whether the reader will further his/her reading or not. It should  be short but compelling. You should always target the reader in a way to make him/her read the whole article.

3. Write informally, where possible!

Unless in a case when you are writing something that is conventional or defined to be formal, make your writing informal and casual. In this way, you can not only convey your message but can also address the reader in a friendly manner which is naturally easy to write and easy to read. Moreover, you cannot clearly express your opinions and thoughts if you’re going formal, so choose informal instead way of writing.

4. Research, Research and Research...

If you're specifically an online weblog writer, research is your key to an effective piece of writing. Instead of wasting your time on Facebook and Twitter (or whichever you use), try to research about the latest trends and advancements in your field of expertise (also your blog's niche maybe). I'm talking about general research and not the research you do for some specific post. This will help you in writing accurate and effective content and will also increase your knowledge of the subject.

5. Take breaks while writing:

You cannot (or rather should not)  just sit in front of your computer screen and keep on writing for like two to three hours in other to accomplish an article. Don't you think that the brain would need some rest? Common...! take break quite often while writing; so as to keep your brain open and fresh always. Mind you, that will always make the brain focus more on the context and help you write better.

6. Take good care of your 'emotions':

While writing, always ensure that you feel relaxed and your mind is open and free of any stress. It is always advisable that you don't write whenever you are angry, sad or feeling abnormal. Write when your brain is free of any pressures as that is when it would be able to focus the most and produce some good quality content. Also, you cannot clearly express your thoughts in the writing if you’re feeling stressed, so think about it and make some adjustments.

7. Be precise and direct:

Never think that your reader has all the time in the world to read your stuff. Write in a focused manner and do not deviate from the subject. You might want to increase the word count by mentioning unnecessary examples, but hey - no one's got time for that. Write short but accurate and do not waste the reader's time in wondering what you wrote about.

8. Make your writing 'Robot-friendly':

It is possible that you might already know about the various SEO techniques that gets you more readers. Well, they definitely work. Try adding various keywords (which you can research on) that will make your article stand out among the others the search engine processing robot has to process. Add keywords in the title, intro and closing for maximum benefit of the trick.

9. Don't focus only on the Robot:

 This, i could have mentioned under the previous heading but did not, because it is somehow important and should be focused on separately, hence you find it here. What unprofessional  bloggers do is; putting enough keywords to blog articles thereby, make their writing useless. Yes, keywords are important, but do not forget that it's also the humans who read your article. It should be human-friendly as well. Restrict keywords to title, intro and closing only and at the same time, produce an effective piece of writing so as to be at peace with both the viewers, the robots and the humans.

10. Be honest!

Being honesty, is the best policy ever! Always keep in mind that your article would be read by many across the globe and the day people figure out that you mislead them by writing something that's not right, you’re doomed. Write accurately and be honest in what you write. You would know the feeling one gets when he comes to know that all the hype that the writer created in the article was fake. Make sure you are never the writer in such a story.

11. Have your own unique style of writing:

Writing the way you speak the language, makes writing easier. And yes, forget about the grammar and stuff unless if English is what you're writing on. Copying other's style is an unprofessional way of writing and at the same time, its makes the whole process difficult. You will need to put more effort on the style than the content. Like I mentioned before, you should write informally and in your own tone so as to deliver the message clearly.

12. Approach the subject from a unique aspect:

Note that, there are various angles in which you can cover the topic you are writing on, especially in technological reviews. You can always pick up any aspect of the subject, and then get detailed into it. But, make sure the aspect you choose is unique and interesting. After choosing the angle, go detailed into it by staying focused on only that aspect. If you are writing about the form-factor of a smartphone, mentioning the pixel density.

13. The Length to Depth ratio should be Unity:

Increasing the word count means increasing the details you are providing. The depth should be directly related with the words you write. Writing 1000 words just to give a brief overview of a device is a fail attempt to write an effective content. Giving too much detail in a short post and giving very less detail in a large post are two things you MUST avoid. You should determine the depth you're going in, by the target word count.

14. Proofread and Edit the document:

No one is such a genius to write an error-free document in the first run. There are certain mistakes that you figure out only when you're proofreading the document you wrote. Note that, proofreading also helps you in determining if there is something you missed while writing and then you can be able to add that up.

15. Focus on the Outro too!

Once you're done explaining what you needed to, never forget to write a proper closing paragraph which should either be directive, complimentary or both. This is in fact where you can interact with the user and give him/her your final thoughts and/or tell him what to do next. Make it a proper one since most of the readers jump directly from the intro to the end to see what you concluded there.

The Guarantee Trust Bank (GTBank) 737 short code, is a simple, smart, and safe way for banking at anytime, anywhere and on any device. It offers a very simple banking alternative which remarkably does away with virtually all limitations and difficulties found in most banking sectors like: (always visiting bank branches for banking services, poor customer service, staying in a queue, delay in withdrawals, just to mention but a few.). While online banking demands Internet access and a mobile application, conventional banking in the other way round, requires the physical presence of the customer at a bank branch, GTBank 737 short code requires none of the above for banking transactions. 

In this age of digital revolution, it is the very simple technological innovations that often have the most transformative impact on people and the society. Foremost financial institution; Guaranty Trust Bank plc has once again set a new standard in electronic banking services with the introduction of Bank 737.

Imagine if opening an account was as simple as dialing a number from your mobile phone or transferring funds was as easy as sending a text message, or paying bills could be done at any time of the day, even long after banking hours. 

Imagine if you need to make an urgent transfer online and your data just ran out and you don’t have your hardware token to complete the transaction. Truth is, at some point or the other we have all experienced those moments when we wished banking could be as simple as ABC’s and 123’s. Well, in this case, GTBank has made it as simple as 737.

It is not just about the wide range of services available on the 737, but how the services are delivered; by simply dialing *737# on any mobile phone.

If the simplicity of the GTBank 737 is amazing, its speed is even more so. Transactions using the 737 take less than a minute to conclude, meaning it is even quicker than online money transfer. It gets even faster with the availability of short access codes. Among these are *737*0# for account opening, *737*7# to generate token code, *737*37*Amount*Smart Card No# to pay for Star Times Subscription and so much more.

In backing up its simplicity and speed, is its security. The customer is the only one who can access the 737 services for his or her GTBank Account because it only makes use of the mobile number that is linked to the account. GTBank 737 also requires customers to personally sign off all their transactions by providing the four last digits of your GTBank Naira MasterCard.

GTBank is regarded by industry watchers as one of the best run financial institutions in Nigeria and across its subsidiary countries. The bank is renowned for its innovative financial solutions, superior financial performance, world class corporate governance standards and excellent service delivery.
