How to Write Marketing Blogs Your Clients Will Actually Read

Are you finding it difficult to keep clients consuming content on your website?

This is a common issue that many marketers face in the initial stages of their journey. It is also an issue which forces many dreams of the 4 hour work week to the grave.

Reasons being, that beyond any content which you may have within your blog, regardless of quality or practicality, the first thing that determines how your content is received, is the formatting of each blog post.

Thinking you can still get away with having long paragraphs and complicated sentences is a big mistake still made by many marketers and bloggers alike.

Studies have found that 79% of users first scan a page before deciding to read. Read More …

Did You Know That an Online Marketing Education Can Ignite Your Freelance Writing Career?

If I had asked myself 5 or 6 months ago, “ Is freelance writing a logical option for me to incorporate into my business model within the next 5, 10 or 15 years?” I would have probably said no.

At the time, I had no idea that freelance writing would have been such a great fit. As I knew not of the opportunities and benefits of incorporating it into my business model.

I hadn’t realised that in essence, writing blog posts, articles & copy etc.. was going to be such a big part of my current business model (which is affiliate marketing).

I also had no idea that my content writing ability would be a skill, which other businesses and business persons alike, would be willing to pay for, in the way which they do. Read More …

How Social Media is Making The World a Better Place

How Social Media Is Changing Our WorldIf you were to time travel 10-15 years ago and take a message to your former self, explaining what social media is and how we can facetime each other from 1000 miles away, there is a good chance you may not have seen that as a possibility.

Imagine that, today we may feel as though the internet has been around for a long time but to be brutally honest with you, the internet is still very much in its infancy.

I believe there is still quite some ways to go before we reach the pinnacle but yet we have begun to see a massive shift in the marketplace. Yes, ask yourself this question, when was the last time you were excited to go out and buy the latest edition of Men’s Fitness or Vogue?

How I Got Started Freelance Writing: Overview & My Journey

It is no secret that I have long aspired to be an entrepreneur, creating my own income & being my own man. I’ve always been a very independent person and I’ve always thought the icing on the cake would be for me to be my own boss.

But I’ve always thought different and have been seeking better for myself from before I could remember.

My journey into entrepreneurship began while I was working at a local pool company. The guy I was working for was nothing nice but his incompetence only served to fuel my idea. He had customers who he would dodge their calls and act very shady for no real apparent reason. Read More …

Why Would a Digital Marketer Become a Freelance Writer?

If you are a digital marketer similar to myself, then you must spend countless hours either creating content like me or sourcing content like my clients.

But I believe it is fair to say that as long as persons still use the term digital marketing, then content creation will always be relevant.

So one of the things I found out early in my career as a digital marketer is that persons who look to scale their businesses often have to outsource content as it is not always possible for those persons to create at such a high volume.

And one of the rules I’ve long heard of as somewhat of an entrepreneurial slogan describes an entrepreneur as someone who finds issues and fixes them. Now, this is not discovering that plants need the sun to make food but it is clear that there is a big need in the market for content creators. Read More …
