4 ways to write your content online faster
Content is the currency of any online business. Content attracts new customers, helps you get noticed on search engine results pages, and helps build a loyal following.
But content takes time to create! Although you should never rush your content online, there are a few ways to ensure that you create it as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality.
1. Don’t constantly edit
The first time you write new content, let the words flow without editing on the fly. Write your first full draft before checking for misspellings or possible changes. Most people tend to edit on the fly and again at the end. This is a waste of time and will often stop the creative “flow”.
2. Eliminate distractions
When you know it’s time to write your content, be sure to eliminate distractions. This may seem obvious, but are you really doing it? Many people tend to keep their Facebook, Twitter, email, etc. open in their browser as they type.
Even if you don’t check them, the notification sounds affect our concentration. Find a quiet place where you can focus and only have the sites that are relevant to your post research open in your internet browser when you write. If necessary, install a browser plug-in that blocks distracting sites (there are many free options available).
3. make a plan
Do some basic planning before you start writing. While some writers are talented enough to write fluently as they go along, others may get stuck midway through and have a hard time continuing. Before writing your content, write a basic outline that lists each basic point from beginning to end. Use this draft as a guide and improvise if necessary along the way.
4. Write shorter content
If possible, keep your content shorter. This does not mean deliberately writing short posts that do not add any value. Instead, it means saying what you need to say, but in as few words as possible. As long as your readers can get what they need in your post and they feel like you are delivering value, there is no difference between a 500 or 1000 word post! Many readers will lose interest anyway if you don’t focus on the topic!
Lastly, remember that it will just get faster with practice, and especially when you “bundle” your content creation process to create many posts at once. So keep writing and creating content!
