In your point of view, what are the points to become a successful content writer?
Working daily on articles, site content, press release and others? or hear from customers' feedback and improve your skills accordingly.

If you want to be a successful content writer (like a blogger) then I would suggest that you evaluate what "successful" is to you, once you establish what it means to you then I could give you feedback, however, I can't tell you how to be successful because our definitions of success could be very different.

Let me explain what "success" is to me (business oriented):
In a nutshell, to me success if the ability to help others solve their problems and reach their goals.

I believe that becoming a successful content writer is about helping your readers in any way you can. e.g. If you are writing a guide, then make sure that guide is as complete as possible and then ask yourself the following question: if I were the one looking for this information, found it and read it. Would it help me? Would it solve my problem?
If you answered no then change whatever it is you have to change in order to help people. That way you will be able to create an audience, a community of interested people around it.

One of the common mistakes I find in bloggers is the fact that they always write trying to please everyone. F**k that! BE YOURSELF! If you want to be able to build a successful business online you can't be asking yourself How can I make people like me better? It just doesn't make any sense!

BE YOURSELF! BE AUTHENTIC!

You will attract like-minded people that will stick with you in the long run. I'd rather having 100 highly interested people in what I have to say instead of 1,000 people that couldn't care less about my opinion.

Also, BE HUMBLE! Nobody likes a know it all, if there is something you don't know, it's fine! don't try to convince people otherwise or you could end up tarnishing your reputation by saying something stupid that makes no sense in an instant. Tell me is that truly worth it? I don't think so.

If there is something you don't know all you have to do is go to someone who actually knows what they are talking about and learn! After that, you will be able to have a saying in things.

Anyway, I hope you find this information useful, you don't need to push content every day. Once a week is fine, just make it worth the read and don't make people waste their time, that way you'll be a successful writer.

Have an amazing day,
Jonathan Nunez

First of all you need to choose a topic that you're familiar, make it as your subject. Make sure that your content is not just informative but also engaging so that readers will read until the end. Information must be accurate and updated. Tone of voice will always depend on you target readers so before writing make sure you have already identified who your target market is. After writing your first entry make sure that you will read the comments that your readers leave, be it positive or not for you can apply it the next time you write. Lastly, just be yourself, write the way you wanted to write. Be original! good luck hoping that you will be successful on your chosen field! :eek:
