How to Write Authentic Web Content

Posted by on Apr 25 2013 | content, Content Writing, Web Content Writing

Writing just for the sake of writing and not focusing on legitimacy of the content is like trying to paint without a canvas. One might think that being authentic should be easy, but it is easier said than done. Being truthful is one thing, but to be able to fit it in a certain frame while giving it that creative spark tends to be a tough task at hand, even for the most creative writers.

Some useful tips on how to make your content genuine and relevant:

  1. Develop your own Signature Style: Paulo Coelho and Stephen King both have very different technique of writing and they both make it work to their advantage. Do not try and copy anyone’s way of writing because that will just come out as a fake print. Write the way you would normally talk because if you do that, your writing would be smooth and expressive.
  2. Tell a Story: Relate the subject of your content to something that may have happened around you, or with you. People love reading a great story and this also gives your article a sense of integrity.
  3. Form Your Own Views: It is not necessary that you agree with black being the most fashionable color while the rest of the world thinks it is.  If you think it’s yellow, then take a stand and express why you believe it is. When you write about a certain subject, it is important to formulate your own opinions on it as this will naturally create a coherency in your content and make it an original piece of writing.

It is important to take the time and think before you put pen to paper for any topic that you wish to write on. Trying to rush your own thoughts would never give you the result you’re looking for. Originality in content springs from original thoughts, so as long as the thoughts are your own and uninfluenced, the content would be genuine and high-quality.

Picking Ideas: Thoughts for a Copywriter

Posted by on Apr 01 2013 | Content Writing, Copywriting, Web Content Writing

The job of developing copy for web content is an art of its own kind. While many have mastered it, others are stumbling on their way to it. There is always an easy way out of this, which generally translates into copy-paste method, but doing justice to a creative would require much more than that.

So, here’s what a creative writer can do:

Keep a Sharp Eye: True, a copywriter would be required to have an eye for details. No matter how small but if a word, a caption or a slogan, seems impactful, should make way to the copy bank of the writer. This adds on to ideas and gives perspective on subjects related or unrelated.

Save the Searches: This is important because there are way too many sources that one comes across every single day. So, to keep a fool proof reference to a work, it is good to save it with proper indexes. This helps in getting back to the copy and pooling thoughts out of it.

Sort the Best: It depends entirely on the copywriter as to how he likes to shape up the work based on the brief. In which case, sorting out the best is his job. At the same time, feedback is always welcome as it helps bending and tweaking the fine lines.

Improvise Critically: When nothing else works from memory and resources, the only possible solution lies in innovating. Trusting that the person is creative, this should be a cakewalk. But one may hit the writer’s block. Don’t fret, have patience. That works too. It does come along and from a very odd place indeed.

Keeping these nuances in mind can help any creative person get over the copy blues over time. However, it is important that this becomes a habit as natural as breathing for the best results.

Web Writing: A Note

Posted by on Oct 11 2012 | Web Content Writing

When it comes to web writing, people have definitely left their inhibitions behind. Talking of literary and communicative freedom, web writing has long surpassed the idea. There are no boundaries for web writing which is loosely based on the fact that the people of the world have unending queries and there is an eternity of knowledge out there to be explored. The dressing on this is the speed and connectivity feature added by the internet.

Now, with web writing being such a dynamic field, what does it hold in totality? As it is evident for every piece of work, web writing also takes into account certain key factors that are there to make sure the content is perceived the way it set out to mean.

Knowledge: Knowledge is an uncompromising aspect of web writing. The premise is set with the idea that people come to web looking for answers and the web pages need to cater to that demand, thus, the rise of the immense knowledge pool. Thanks to pages like Wikipedia people have nearly something about everything to feed upon.

Verification: With the talk of knowledge and its expanse, it becomes essential to have it all verified. Web does not really discriminate and there can be numerous sources but that’s one reason why content need be verified. A good research is always welcome in this regard.

Censorship: Now that it is content of all sorts, it is important to know what should go into appearance before a totally vulnerable audience. Web censorship is not exactly held in strict regards because people, largely, are looking for all kinds of information. But websites do follow certain code of conduct and try not to break the rule.

Security: The information shared on the internet is from both ends. Here, the information provided by the author more or less becomes a guide for the reader. This however can be manipulated and twisted for unwanted means. Thus, it is crucial for a web writer to understand the terms and conditions under which the content must fall.

Writing for the Web: 4 Things to Remember

Posted by on Sep 17 2012 | Web Content Writing

We often come across the saying that “I was born with an IQ but education ruined it”. Whilst in most cases it has been proved true that no formula picked straight out of the books has ever worked in reality, it is surprising how true it is with writing as well.

Paradoxical as it may seem, the length and breadth of an essay that made literature students fetch copious marks, are insignificant in practicality. Since the industry, today is rooted in a virtual platform and writing has taken a digital form, certain rules of writing do not work.

Writing for the web is not a rocket science. However, like other forms of writing it abides by its set of rules, too. Below is a list of 4 main things to remember while penning for the web:

  • Redefined Reading: Only 5% of the entire population on the web would be actually reading it. Well, this may not be true in case of e-books; however, as far as websites and other sales related content is concerned, people on the web “scan” the text. Also, people tend to read 25% slowly on the web; therefore, the content on the web has to be 40%-50% shorter than its print version.
  • Information Redefined: Let’s face it! No one is looking for pages and pages of content containing running text. Overloaded with content, information, data and mails 24*7, all that one is looking for at the end of the day is a bang-on solution for their search/problem. If your content can does the tricks in 10 seconds, it will not take more than a minute for the user to get an understanding of the remaining content.
  • Voice Redefined: It’s all about writing the way you talk. The only form of voice that works on the web is “interactive”. It is the only way to draw audience attention and encourage information sharing, which is the ultimate goal of web content writing.
  • Text Redefined: Crisper, crunchier and much more concise, text for the digital age has to be redefined to fit the small screen of your systems and mobiles. The text has to be focused on the message – to communicate.

When you are writing for the web, you are inviting international readership. Standardization of content, therefore, becomes extremely important.

Website Content Writing: Top 5 Things to Know

Posted by on Sep 15 2012 | Web Content Writing

The realm of writing for websites differs greatly from traditional writing. The prime reason being is that the attention span of an online user much is fairly low. In order to generate effective website content, you need to adhere to some principles:

  1. Flow: The online user is not very likely to put a real effort in going through a webpage. So, it is critical to maintain an effortless flow and cohesiveness in the content, so that the user can easily wade through it. To introduce the aforementioned elements in your writing, you must use conversational tone and direct speech.
  2. Economy of words: Wordiness absolutely mars the readability of any piece of writing. Website content must be to the point, concise and consistent. Remember that the online user is always in a hurry.
  3. Accentuate: In order to enhance the readability of your content, you must supplement it with images, hyperlinks, bullet points, headings and subheadings. There can be overwhelming amounts of content on a webpage, making an arduous task for the user to find what he/she may be looking for. Therefore, the content should be laid out in a well defined structure with clear and concise points illustrated with images.
  4. Adapt: While writing, you must be aware of the kind of user would be reading your content and where exactly the content would be placed. It is important that the content on the webpage confirms to the overall theme of the website and the audience it would cater to.
  5. Invert It: The age old principle of inverted style of writing holds good for website content writing too. Position the crux of the content right at the beginning and shift the accessorial details to the bottom.

In all probability an online users is going through a web page because he/she needs a ready access to useful information laid out in a simple fashion. A content writer for a website must serve this primary and basic need of the online user.

Nuances of Web Content Writing

Posted by on Jul 17 2012 | Search Engine Optimization, Web Content Writing

Gone are the days, when people would queue up in departmental stores to pick up their t-shirts on sale. The principle custom of being physically present to buy, hand out the cash is now a fondly remembered memory. Now if someone has to buy anything under the sun, they need only log on to the internet and shop to their heart’s desire. Technology has increasingly mobilised the social functions and with the Internet, now deemed as the new virtual residence, it need not come as a surprise that most MNC’s would want to revamp their image to keep up.

Content is, therefore, the undisputed king of the virtual world. It will either put a website on the proverbial marketing pedestal, or will drown the website to oblivion. This leaves the web content writer with an immense responsibility. He is expected to have the required foresight to be able to predict the changing trends in search engine optimization and use them to the best of his abilities.

When writing for the masses, one requires finding ways to make them click, access and treat the content as per the website’s intentions. To do this the content writer must have an in-depth knowledge of the subject at hand and must strategise his appeal for the masses. Although writing content for a website does not have a standard set of rules, but if a content writer manages to grasp the subtle nuances he will be able to produce a winning copy. Marketing is just a game played to lure in mass attention and to be at the top of this game, one only needs to understand what makes the audience click. Thus targeting the audience and shaping the content to suit the tone of voice will make the reader feel a connection. In this regard, the appropriate use of words in the required frequency and tone is what will work in favour of the content. Even with all the technicalities in place, what makes content readable at the end of the day, is the language. So the writer cannot bombard the content with difficult words and phrases. The challenge however will be to create appealing content without compromising on quality.

Web users are aware of how precious time is. Even when they choose to aimlessly surf the web, they would prefer to view content that takes the least effort to read. So the content writer cannot hope to hold their attention with volumes of text. It needs to be concise and interactive. Using an audio visual medium will do more than just enhance content. At the end of the day, establishing a connection with every John Doe is what every marketing enterprise roots for.

Content on the homepage

Posted by on Jun 04 2012 | Web Content Writing

Loose it. Don’t lose it.

We understand the question in your mind right now which is, ‘what is there to wonder about this title?’ Well, there is. When it comes to writing for web/digital space, the content is not just what is visible but what is sorted, recycled and to be taken home (No, not exactly. It’s the idea of perceiving). And there comes the thought of ‘loosening’ a bit.
Do not get me wrong with the last phrase, by loosening we do not suggest the language to be frivolous. The idea is to be smart and not uptight. Let’s just say how many times you have preferred leaving a website’s homepage because the content was not engaging enough (We get the virtual nods). Hence, you know where to set the right foot forward. Some of the suggestive tips are as follows:

•    Think beyond the rulebook. If the content has to be technical, deal with it in a separate arena and not on the landing page.(It can be troubling and often perceived with disinterest)
•    Introduce yourself right. Share the relevant information.
•    Make it personal and interactive (In the meantime, not losing the essence of the subject)
•    Be innovative at times. Talk of what is there to offer instead of figures and statistics. (Claims that are not certified backfire)
•    Bring the gist or highlights of different sections of the website on the landing page. It helps the traffic to breeze through with what might hold their interest.

Keeping these by your side you manage to let the ‘traffic’ stay and not bounce. Rest will follow, and so will the profits.

Tips on Website Content Writing

Posted by on May 18 2012 | Web Content Writing

Tips on writing for the web can be a tricky (to the power infinity) task. Well the writing part resembles much to writing for any other medium but the problem here lies in understanding the ‘core purpose’ behind writing for the web. Good web content writers and great web content writers are separated by a fine line, which is the understanding of the audience on web. Here is my personal collection of notes that I have memorized in case I need to refer the same while writing for the web:


1)     Keywords Is The Key: Writing for the web largely entails working with and upon keywords. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is what we are targeting while utilizing keywords. Depending upon the keyword density and organization into the content the rank of the webpage/content page on the World Wide Web is decided.

2)     Profound Research Is the Motive: Doing research is the most helpful way of getting an idea about what people on the net like to read. You will get a better picture regarding the language, structure as well as topics that are most searched and read on the internet. Try and follow a similar pattern but do not restrict your own creativity. Take an idea from them and don’t follow blindly.

3)     Blogging/Writing Is the Function: One you have decided your audience you need to share your work and research with the rest of world. Social media and blogging allow you to convey your message in a quick manner to a greater audience. Be crisp and clear in your writing. Use simple language and make it interesting to read. Use humor but know the limits.

4)     Sharing Is Promoting: Rather than waiting for people to come and view your works promote it by sharing it with others in the same blogosphere. Share their content as well and form a content utility network.

Writing for the web can be great fun once you know that tricks of the trade. Keep your content alive by regularly breathing freshness into it. Keep content updated and regular.

Web Content Writing – The Do’s and Don’ts

Posted by on May 17 2012 | Web Content Writing

Writing website content is becoming a big challenge these days. People pay a closer attention to what is written on the websites they visit. Therefore, it becomes important to deliver good content to the readers so that they find it helpful and at the same time are engaged while reading the content. In order to make your website content helpful it is important that you follow the do’s and don’ts for effective writing.


Keep it Short and Simple: always make sure that website content should be written to the point. This is because most of the readers would not like to spend time reading something that is long. Readers would be ready to read short and brief content, clicking on links and may end up buying something.

Follow SEO Writing Rules: it is important that while writing content for website, you keep SEO in mind. This is important because you must have written the most engaging and interesting content for the website, but until and unless it does not appear in the search engine results then no one would be able to see it. Therefore, SEO keywords are extremely important for you to be able to make your writing visible in the results.

Importance of Titles and Subtitles: It is important that you break down your content into titles and subtitles. This is will make your content appear more organised, and the readers who are just visiting the websites for a few seconds can actually read the subtitles to get an idea about the entire write-up.


Never Use Sales Language: Avoid salesman pitch when writing for web. While giving all the information about the products, your language should be action oriented and not sales oriented.

Do not Sound very Formal: Remember you readers would like to read something that answers their problems in a friendly manner, therefore, use conversational style of writing.
