How To Go About Blogging For Businesses

by Jenny on June 6, 2013

All wordsmiths understand from experience that a shiny, empty flatscreen devoid of content is one's own worst nightmare when a deadline is coming at you like a freight train. In today's marketplace, brand exposure is fueled predominantly by raw data and analysis. A writer can beat the feeling of being trapped in a sterile, impersonal assignment by using his or her creative interests to carve out the content of an article from the industry-specific or narrowly technical bedrock of the topic.
 
This approach works regardless of whether one is delivering content for multiple clients on a fixed schedule, or if one is aiming to launch a blog of one's own. Whatever the case, a writer needs an unobstructed view of the playing field and a plan to ensure success, all without the risk of a nervous breakdown and the need for a  mental health support team (but a team is useful, too). Here a few good points to keep in mind when planning one's strategy:
  • A writer shouldn't fear delving into the geekier side of the topic on occasion. In a business article, the writer is the expert on the offerings of the enterprise, so the writer should understand the liberty he or she has to speak out about the detailed, topical knowledge he or she has on the subject. It's true that too technical of an article can drive the readership away, but on the other hand, most readers want to learn something factually accurate and useful from the items that they choose to read.
  • A writer should have reference to a broad range of topics in the arts, humanities and popular culture. Staying aware of items of popular interest that gives his or her content a timely feel is important. The writer should be able to refer to monolithic examples of art and literature, as well as minutiae that he or she personally has found interesting throughout his or her own reading and viewing experiences.
  • A good idea is to schedule one's content around milestones in order to make sure one delivers the content on time and with a good balance of creative elements of technical elements. This gives the writer breathing room to ensure that the content is couched well in writing that reflects some outside research or complementary ideas that the writer brings to the table. It also makes sure the final product is on time. The writer can also set up the milestones so that each allotment of content is not just a quantity of words, but also an outline of creative ideas that the writer prepares ahead of time and then builds out in writing
  • In the end, one should make sure that one doesn't lose readership and push clients away by delivering writing that seems to be too repetitive. Keeping the writing diverse with good word choices and a depth of ideas, insight and references outside of the subject is crucial so that there's a little something for every reader, every time.
