A question that a content writer at the leading creative agency addresses
Hmmm, interesting topic to ponder on! Well to begin with, my name is Bahnik and I am the Head of Content at the leading marketing agency that works across B2B and B2C brands. Becoming a good content writer takes time, practice, and a zeal to continuously learn and improve. Here are some tips that can help you become a good content writer and land a job at a good creative agency:
- Understand the category you want to write about
- Read widely on that category: Reading a variety of content can help you improve your writing skills by exposing you to different writing styles, tones, and techniques. Read books, articles, blogs, and other forms of content to expand your knowledge and vocabulary.
- Know your target audience: Before you start writing, define who your target audience is. This will help you tailor your writing style and tone to better resonate with your readers.
- Research well: Good content is informative and engaging. Make sure to research your topic thoroughly and provide accurate information to your readers.
- Use clear and concise language: Write in clear, concise language that is easy for your readers to understand. Avoid using jargon or overly complicated words. Trust me, that does not help.
- Use an active tone of voice: Writing in an active voice makes your content more engaging and easier to read. Use active verbs and sentence structures to keep your readers interested.
- Edit and proofread: Editing and proofreading are essential parts of good writing. Make sure to review your content carefully for errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation. As a content writer do not deliver errors, please.
- Continuously learn and improve: Writing is a craft that requires continuous learning and improvement. Seek feedback from others, take courses, and read books on writing to improve your skills.
CREATIVE INC – the highly innovative creative agency / marketing agency has been instrumental in honing my skills and making me a good content writer (I will not say great!!!). Even after 16 years, I am still learning & evolving. You know, as Charu Nathan (a fierce writer herself) puts it, stop learning and you become extinct! Writing is not a play of words… it is a weave of the right message to be communicated. A message that hits the audience where it is supposed to! Write to make an impact.
Write to stick!
