Well, hello! It’s so nice of you to drop by on this Tip Tuesday which is actually now Thursday!
Today, I’m going to be talking about how to write a good post/copy/blog that people actually want to read.
If you’ve been in the professional world long, I’m sure it’s been ingrained into your brain to write in a way that sounds professional. You don’t want to come across as unintelligent or like you aren’t quite sure you know what you’re doing. Right? Especially if you’re the voice of your company/brand/whatever.
Well, I am here to tell you to get that thought out of your head right now! Dear sir, I am writing to tell you today that this is boring and no one wants to read it.
When it comes to social media, emails, gaining clients, etc - people want to know YOU, they want to know who you are and not a lot shows that more than the words you say and how you speak - which needs to come across in the way you write!
For instance: I say hello, hi, hey, howdy! Dude, OMG, fabulous! AMAZING! And, I use exclamation marks A LOT. Because, well, I’m excited about life.
So, today my tip to you is: Write how you speak.
”But, I’m not a good writer!” you say. Well, OK, so get someone to do it for you.
Write down some things you say often, grab someone who knows you WELL, tell them what you want to say, and then have them do it.
And that’s it! Go get ‘em!
Ok, there might be one condition: if you work for someone else, definitely run this by them first! Also, do not use this strategy when you are actually writing and sending professional documents. ;)
