The content trap

When you think of online content for your business, how do you feel?

Obliged?

Overwhelmed?

Content marketing can quickly become just another thing on your to-list. Just block out a couple of hours per week to churning out the next batch of posts. Quantity over quantity. Keeping up appearances.

But the way we read online is even more frenetic than the way we read print. The old upside-down pyramid of news journalism is even more relevant today than ever.

Every single word counts.

When you write for your audience, everything you say needs to be tighter, sharper, shorter, clearer.

Give yourself time to write it. Then more time to tighten it, clean it up and write it again.
