Using common sense when writing

A major part of being a ‘copywriter / writer for hire‘ and creating high quality material is to use common sense when researching and writing. Making sure you don’t ask silly questions, but do ask questions when required.

Example:

I was asked to write about a new range of products. I asked if they were an affiliate, reseller or supplier of the new range. There is a difference and it will impact the relevance and objectives of the article.

I also make sure I communicate to my clients when I notice mistakes or think there is an issue they should be aware of.

Example:

I was asked to convert a Microsoft Word document into a web page and asked also to reformat the text. I noticed incorrect contact details in the document, modified and advised my client of the changes.

There are many more examples where I discuss updates with my clients and don’t purely act as writer. Mistakes on websites will impact their performance and objectives and I don’t just create content, I use common sense to create quality content.

Another situation is using common sense when writing blog posts. I am often asked to write 300, 400 or 1000 word posts. A lot of writers would try and fill the blog post to quickly reach the required target. I make sure I provide highly quality SEO friendly content throughout my work, no matter how many words I produce. No point creating a weak post quickly, doesn’t help anyone.

Only this morning a client said they only use me to write their content. I happened to know before Christmas they were using two writers. Using my common sense when working with my client has played a part in our continued relationship, coupled with high quality content, communication and producing work to required deadlines.
