Getting Past Writer’s Block and Overcoming Boredom in Content Marketing

Break the Monotony with Tips and Tricks from the Top SEO Writers in Canada
If you run a blog or website long enough, you will inevitably run into the boredom that plagues all writers and content creators. When this happens, make note that this is not a cause for alarm. You can overcome these phases by applying proven industry techniques.

Remember, too, that you do not need to struggle with content writing. By taking advantage of the leading copywriting agency in the Toronto area, you can explore ways to add a new spark to your marketing efforts. Collaborate with our team of SEO content writers to produce quality content, or you may even want to leave the writing entirely to us.

Here are 5 writing and content marketing strategies worth adopting:

  • Ask the Audience – Why second-guess what your customers are looking for when you can simply ask them? Create a Q & A template to be utilized across all of your medial pages and channels, from Facebook to Twitter to YouTube. Do not forget to include the questions in a newsletter for your email subscribers. You could also display the questions on your blog, and ask your users to post their answers in the comments section. By implementing the feedback you receive, you can continue to provide content that interests your audience.
  • Get Engaged – To truly connect with your customers and find out what interests them, you must connect with them on multiple levels. If you have not already created social media pages, you should make this a priority. Engage with your social media followers to explore what kinds of content they find compelling. You might ask your followers what appeals to them, or you may want to observe their conversations to gain insights in a less overt manner.
  • Part with Your Devices – If you really want to know your audience and create content that resonates with them, social media engagement is only a piece of the puzzle. One highly effective way to become familiar with your readers is to engage with them in the “real world.” Get away from behind the computer screen and participate in some Meetups. Meet other content creators by enrolling in industry seminars and attending conferences. You could discover innovative ways to produce fascinating content that might otherwise never have occurred to you.   
  • Post Content About Your Users – If you already engage with your readers on a regular basis, you are probably being given invaluable information about their interests and activities. If your users relate noteworthy deeds or intriguing anecdotes, request their permission to share them. This will provide a new and unique element to your content. Your audience will also appreciate that you care enough about them to celebrate their successes along with your own.
  • Stop Trying to Do Everything – Trying to do it all yourself can backfire and cause intense boredom on your part. You can be sure that this boredom will extend to your users. Make an assessment of which tasks you were born to do and which ones leave you yawning. Then, delegate as many of the boring jobs as you can. Hire a managed hosting service to take care of tedious details, such as ongoing updates and security patches. If writing is not your strong suit, outsource content writers to provide interesting, relevant content for your readers. 

To attract visitors and remain visible in online searches, your blog, website, and social media pages require ongoing content. If you apply a few simple strategies, your content need never be boring. Keep your audience captivated by engrossing content every time you post.  If you feel overwhelmed by the thought of producing an ongoing stream of content, consult the pros at MintCopy. We are dedicated to creating content that will inspire your users to remain loyal to your brand.

What You Need to Know

If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that Google is going to update its search algorithm. Some experts estimate that Google makes 500 to 600 updates annually, or once or twice each day. Most of these changes don’t have a significant impact on your SEO strategy, but every now and then, one comes along that can have serious repercussions. Learn more about two new features of Google search that help users verify and evaluate search results.

Google, one of the largest companies in the world, relies on artificial intelligence for hundreds of it projects. It can seem a little hypocritical for Google to tell businesses that they can’t use AI-generated content on their website. Back in 2010, Google’s John Mueller said that using automated translation tools to create content for your website “could be viewed as being against our Webmaster guidelines.” Here we are, over 10 years later, and Mueller just tweeted that “content generators have been around since the start of the web…Most sites…don’t need help creating low-quality content.” There’s a big discussion in the SEO industry about AI-generated content.

One of the toughest things about creating content is coming up with ideas. You can research keywords all day long, but if you can’t come up with topics around those keywords, your content may fall flat. If your in-house copywriter is struggling to keep up with a content calendar, you might be thinking about working with a content agency. Use these questions to prepare for a meeting with the project manager or as starting points to create your own content.

There just isn't a 'softer' way to say this; it's bad. Duplicate content, as defined by Google, “refers to substantive blocks of content within or across domains that either completely match other content in the same language or are appreciably similar.” Google highly recommends avoiding duplicate content. The key reason is that the ranking of the page on search engine results may suffer. This means, your audiences will not find your content, and when they do, they are unlikely to consider it useful. Understanding how Google handles duplicate content can help you elevate user experience and create a better content marketing plan.

If you just keep churning out content without reviewing what you’ve already done, you’re missing out on opportunities to make your content perform better. A content audit exercise involves systematically reviewing what you’ve published on your website and blog. As you adjust your content marketing plan to your business goals, this audit can help you find gaps in your content and see what’s been successful. When reviewing your content, look for these things that can negatively impact your content strategy.

Search has changed a lot over the years. Search results are displayed to be more efficient for users. Users search for information differently than they used to. There’s still a lot that search can’t do right now. Google aims to change the power of search again with their latest update, Multitask Unified Model, aka MUM. This new update will expand search capability to make search deliver more accurate and relevant information in seconds. Here’s what your content writers need to know about MUM.

Refine Your Content So it Resonates with Your Audience

Many websites churn out content as part of their online digital strategy without considering how their audience will respond to the content. Contextualizing content is a way of adding value to the reader. But what does it mean to put your content in context? It’s a way of approaching content that considers the why and when of your content, not just the person who is reading it. A person who needs a plumber to fix a leak needs different content than someone who is thinking about how to install a new toilet. The first customer needs access to a list of quick tips to prevent damage until a plumber can help while the second customer may want to read through a detailed outline of updating a bathroom for aging-in-place.
