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.

Hungry? Order online and get whatever you’re craving. But first, you’ll check the reviews and ratings, won’t you? Shopping online for your favourite clothing brand? What are others saying about the new Fall Collection? Of course, that matters! According to Inc.com, 84% of people trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation. Most businesses try to do everything they can to avoid bad reviews for that reason. Unfortunately, feedback, both positive and negative, is an inevitable outcome of running a business. Negative feedback is uncomfortable, but it’s also an opportunity to improve. You’re not likely to get those perfect 5-star reviews from every customer, every time. So, remember that you will never please everyone, but you can strive to please many. If you have a customer complaint or criticism, take the trouble to find out what went wrong. Take those negative reviews and use them to create quality content that shows customers you care.

You're staring at a blank page. You and your team want the best content for your landing page. It must engage. It must convert. It must really stand out. But most of all, it must resonate with your audience. So, where do you begin? Here's a tip: The best copy on landing pages reads like a customer wrote it. "This pain relief cream made my shoulder pain disappear. I slept like a baby!' is your customer writing your landing page headline.
