Writing Week: Day SEVEN

A coach writing great content = A “Contented” Coach.

Same applies to you if you’re a therapist, but “The Contented Therapist” don’t alliterate so well, right?

Anyway, I’m in a proper mood to roll out some genius-level wordsmithery hacks ahead of my Persuasive Writing Masterclass at 17.00 UK Monday (Today, if you’re reading this on Monday 30th Oct).

So, here’s a brief checklist of must-do content-writing gubbins that are as essential as counting ballot papers using sequential numbers:

  • Treat your reader’s time as more important than yours. Spending 2 hours drafting a 1-minute read is just fine, Hemingway.
  • Write like you’re having a bar-room chat with a mate, 1-2-1. Just don’t drink too much, or it won’t read as well as it looks to you.
  • Use words and phrases your ICA recognises and uses about themselves, avoiding jargon like a vegan avoiding a 32oz mixed grill.
  • Regularly poll your ICAs about what’s bugging and exciting them. Their ideas beat your ideas like Depp beat Heard. Allegedly.
  • Use corretc grammar; punctunctaction and, speeling. See how that made me look like my gene-pool had too much chlorine in it?
  • Create more memorable headlines than a corduroy pillowcase. If you can’t stop ’em scrolling, they ain’t reading and you ain’t earning.
  • For SM posts, study WHEN your ICAs are active and likely to read your wisdom. Shouting in the well is, well, gonna make you unwell.
