To be frank there are some really great content writers on the Internet who are doing a marvelous job of helping their clients sell more and grow their businesses. So the intention behind this page is not to convince you into dumping your present content writer and working with me. If you are happy with your present content writer, nothing like it, please stick to him or her.
The home page of this website gives you a fair idea of what I have been up to (in a good sense of course) but this particular page serves as a 1-1 communication. Really, why should you hire me as your content writer? What do you need that I can provide? What is your problem that I can solve?
It doesn’t really matter for how long I have been providing professional content writing services (well, if you insist, since 2004). It also doesn’t matter for how many clients I have worked so far. What really matters is, how many of my clients have actually benefited from my services. This, is the number that tells whether I have been successful or not. This is something that I understand. Numbers don’t matter. The value that I deliver does.
What helps me deliver that value through my content writing services?
My ability to understand your problem
When, or if, you approach me, that is, you decide to work with me, you don’t merely need content for your website. There is something lacking in your website and you want to eliminate that discrepancy. You know that it is your content. Somehow it is not able to convince your customers and clients into doing business with you. Maybe it’s not providing enough information. Maybe it is providing too much information, or too little. Maybe it is very distracting. Maybe it is not convincing enough. Maybe it does not use the language your customers and clients are comfortable with. Maybe your content writer totally missed the central message.
As a result, you are losing valuable sales. Just imagine how much new business you could have gained. Just imagine how your business could have grown. All your ambitions and plans are going down the drain just because the content that is supposed to bring in business isn’t doing its job.
So am I going to write content that dreams are made of? Sincerely speaking, I cannot make that claim. But what I can claim is, my content will speak the language of your customers and clients. It will understand their pain points and provide solutions accordingly. It will make them feel as if you are one of them and not just a business minded person simply trying to profit from their necessity.
This is not as miraculous as it sounds. It just needs some understanding and a desire to help people (and make money along the way). Through my content I want to improve your business. So it is not about the number of words or the number of pages. It is about the end result. The moment you start gauging the value of a service in terms of words and pages, these numbers become important to you, not your business.
I bring in a multipronged approach
I write as a writer, as a person who knows the Internet quite well, as a person who is totally comfortable with contemporary technology and how it is changing the social fabric of the world in general and the world of business in particular, and as a former web developer.
So it enables me to look at the problem from multiple angles. If you tell me, look, Amrit, my content is not doing business for me, I will understand your problem from your perspective, from your customers’ perspective, and then bridge the gap between both the understandings. Please keep in mind that your prospective customers are not bothered about how great your product or service is. They have a pressing need and they’re looking for a solution. So in order to make your content convincing and trustworthy I normally follow the following path of textual communication:
- Highlight the problem currently being faced by your visitors (that’s why they are on your website if they haven’t arrived by mistake)
- Inform them that their problem is about to be solved
- Tell them what you have got that can solve their problem
- How convincing and reliable your solution is
- How people are currently benefiting from your solution
- How easy it is to avail your solution
- What they are missing if they are not buying your product or service
In between I use call-to-action to prompt them to do what you want them to do (buy from you, subscribe to your updates, or contact you).
As you can see, my primary aim is to make your content customer-centric. Unless yours is a highly known and reputed brand (Apple, for instance), more than the name, people are concerned about what they are actually getting. My content writing is centered around that mentality.
I focus on the message, not the language
It’s not your language that does the business for you, but your ability to communicate your message convincingly. I’m not saying language is not important and you should throw the grammar rules out the window (because this reeks of disrespect and carelessness), but your content should be written in a language your target audience understands, not the way you speak among your own colleagues.
I can write content both for humans and search engines
Every website needs search engine traffic and your content plays a major role in increasing your search engine rankings. The problem with most content writers is that they can either write for search engines (senseless, keyword-intensive content) or for humans — they normally fail to strike a balance. Personally, I don’t even believe in “striking a balance”. If you purely focus on the end-user, you automatically create search engine friendly content. Think it this way – you are writing about what your customers and clients are looking for, you are using the same phrases and expressions used by your customers and clients and you are providing answers to their most pressing questions. So why shouldn’t you get good search engine rankings unless you face indomitable competition? Why needlessly use “tricks”?
I understand content marketing
In order to write content for business websites one needs to understand the importance of content marketing. Simply being able to write content does not mean that your content writer understands the importance of marketing that content. Many content marketing experts are deeming 2013 as the year of content marketing as major brands reduce their conventional marketing and advertising budgets and put that money in content marketing. The beauty of content marketing is that even a one-man business can compete with a multinational enterprise.
These are some basic attributes of my content writing service that can actually grow your customer base and consequently, build your business. While writing content for my clients, my sole purpose is to help them prominently bring forward their most compelling positive points. Some clients prefer the storytelling technique, and some stick to the conventional marketing pitch. Both can work in different scenarios. When I write content for you, I care for your prospective customers and clients so that they are convinced into doing business with you.
