Have you always had a knack with words and creating content has been your favorite to-do list ever since you were a little bean sprout? If yes, then you would have had this dream to create the best content possible for your readers and become their most reliable source of information on the web.
But like all things, you may have noticed that having the skill to write, alone would never be enough to get the ‘people’ to like your work. Instead you may have realized that there are some things that you’re missing, because you’re not getting the response you thought it would have warranted.
This is what this article will help you with. Down below we will discuss some major pointers that will help you learn the best way to use Twitter and write out the content that the general community of users would love to read. It’s not that hard if you get the hang of it.
To start out your journey, you need to make a survey. Make a list of the best content creators you can find and see what they’re up to? Is there something in their content or writing style that you’re probably missing? Then search for popular topics or specific hash-tags that people are enjoying reading about. And last, but not the least, record it somewhere! You can’t expect yourself to remember everything you’ve read. Make sure to capture all the neat details right now, so that you wouldn’t have to waste your time in the future.
I’ve neatly categorized the above three pointers down below. Give them a go and start your content creation journey.
The Pre RequirementsWhen you’re ready and all set to write out your content, the first thing that you need to keep with in your mind while you write is: Your blog’s specific niche, in other words, the target market you’re trying to write the information for. Search for pointers that would relate well with the categories your viewers are likely to enjoy. Writing too much about food in a blog that’s supposed to be about novel, would call in for a major disaster. Despite the fact, that we all love to eat, it would make your reader feel as if you’re not so sure about the direction of your content any better than they would have been.
If you’re a novel blogger, you need to give recent updates about the upcoming novels or the latest series by everyone’s favorite author. You can even leave a review about a novel you have recently read and share your thoughts about why it just had to be the best novel out there yet.
List The BestDoing a little market research and knowing who’s in as the top content creator wouldn’t hurt. On the contrary it may just be the guideline you may require to get that necessary boost and write out the mot recommendable content of your life. We all have to start from somewhere, and nothing can set a better example than these ‘already successful creators of content’. So you can just whip up your speed by creating a Twitter list of these genuine gems.
For this, all you have to do is;
Click on your Profile picture and select lists from the drop-down menu and make up a brand new list. You can choose or decide to make the list private or public, whatever you like. In the end, just add in the perfect description of your list, so that you or the public (if you’ve decided for it to be seen by others) can know what the list is all about.
And the next time, you would need a good back up source as an aid to write out the content you require, just go to your list, and scroll. You can heart out the aspects that catch your attention and then come back to them later. Even if it doesn’t give you the specifics you need, it will surely give you a breather and set out your brain cells in the right direction, to write out your own content.
Twitter SearchAll topics written on Twitter have these ‘hashtags’ marked over them. A novel blogger, for instance, would have #bookoftheday, or #blymyheart tagged over their blogs. These tags make it easier for people to know what to expect in the blog and make it just as easier to get searched. All you’d have to do is search your needed category over the search bar.
You can also save the search by clicking on the three dots in the far corner to give them a look later!
With time you’ll see that there are certain people who end up posting all the good stuff and that these people are the same ‘content creators’. If you find a content creator like that, close your eyes and don’t count to ten. Just add them to your ‘Best List’.
Organize And RecordNo one has superpowers, specifically when it comes to memories. We humans tend to forget all the important stuff, despite all the guarantees we may give. It’ always best to keep the specifics recorded and luckily for us, we have many supporting apps like Google docs’ spreadsheets, where you can easily keep your data save and accessible. You can save the names, urls, pointers, sources and anything or everything that sounds physically important on this application. It’ll make it easier for you to go back and track out your steps or share the sources through either social media sites or emails.
Consolidate The DataTiming out a particular schedule has always helped me out write the content I need perfectly. Set approximately 25-minutes aside to curate your content. You can either use the ‘Pomodoro’ technique or you can just as simply add a timer on your smartphone.
Scroll down your ‘Best list’ and spend the first few minutes to get your thought process straight. Highlight the major points and see what sets their blog apart from others.
Add these points to your record and get started.
As you must have noticed, Twitter has a way of being useful for us, content creators. With the ability to save searches and list out data, we will always be a step ahead and all ready to write.
You can also join in a community for Content Bloggers- a mix of entrepreneurs, experts, and newbies and create content, with them, without risking your sanity- a journey is always better with two people then one.
