When it comes to producing large amounts of content we know just how hard it can be. I have probably produced thousands of articles in my time about topics ranging from legal advice to swimming pool cleaning products. Over time I have developed a systematic approach to web content writing that has made the job simpler for me and I am sure can do the same for you.
- Link your themes – Chances are that you will be producing articles on a range of similar themes. It might be boring, but I have always found it much faster to deal with similar topics and keywords in quick succession. Jumping around keeps things fresh, but it does not make things faster.
- Original material, repetitive themes – Your material should be entirely original, but the theme of your material does not need to be. You can write the same article as many times as you want as long as you do not repeat the material. You can give each article a different spin if you want to, but it does not particularly matter.
- As much as you can bear and not a keystroke more – Content writers suffer inordinate amounts of burnout. Don’t worry, it will happen. The good thing is that if you deal with it properly you will bounce back quickly. If the workload gets too much, take a break. It can be difficult to take a break when you have a pressing case load, but managers do often understand and might be able to pass the caseload off to give you a couple of days break.
Building your web content development skills does not take a terribly long time. As you build your experience you will get better and faster and more tolerant of heavy workloads. You can make a living from web content development, plenty of people do, but you need to be build up your skill base first. Start slow and work your way up. If you are producing web content for your own site you can always outsource what you can’t handle.
