Why you should hire a copywriter

Running a business is very hard and can be time consuming. Which is why I see many abandoned blogs and websites with little or no content. Their owners are too busy running their business, and have forgotten to keep their websites updated. I know it can be hard juggling all the needs of your business, especially when you have no clue on how to go about writing engaging articles. This is why you need a copywriter.

A good copywriter will be able to easily create articles regularly in line with your business. I have been a copywriter for some years now, and many of my clients still wonder how quickly I can shoot a content idea over to them and get the article written a few hours later. The simple answer is because it is my job to do so.

Here are some reasons why you should hire a copywriter –

 

It gives you time to run your business

This to me is the main reason why you should hire a copywriter. Once you hand over the content strategy to your copywriter, you can then focus on running your business. Creating constant quality content takes time and effort. So handing that bit over to a content writer will give you hours to do other jobs.

 

You can focus on what you CAN do

Many business owners are not copywriters. They have no idea on how to write engaging articles. Which is why they should hire a copywriter to do the job for them. This will allow them focus on jobs they can do properly.

 

A good copywriter can hep you rank on search engines

A good copywriter can write engaging SEO articles that will help you rank on search engines. This is good for business because your prospective customers will find your website a lot quicker. Generating organic traffic is very important and well written articles can do just that for your website.

Your business gets a social media presence

Having a social media presence is vital for a successful business. A copywriter can help you have a social media presence. Many of them like myself are also social media managers, so you can get 2 services for the price of 1 if you are a good negotiator. A good copywriter/social media manager can help you create engaging content for your social media platforms.

 

Stand out from the rest

Hiring a copywriter will help your website and overall business stand out from the rest. It is one way of stepping ahead of your competitors because it means you are taking your business seriously. The best way to stand out from the many businesses online is to have amazing content. That already puts you ahead of millions. A well updated website/blog makes your business appear more present and trustworthy.

 

These are just a few reasons why you should hire a copywriter. You can always get in touch with me if you need copywriting services. My email address is – fashionandstylepolice@gmail.com, or you can drop me a line on Twitter – fashionstylepol

So You Want To Be A Reputable Journalist?

*Collaborative post.

When you want to become a journalist, it’s safe to say that you’re never really going to want to be any old writer. You want to be successful, well-known, and great at your job too. And more importantly, you want to be reputable. A reputable journalist is famous for being good at their job. Here’s how you can do it.

 

Learn The Ropes

 To start with, you’re going to want to learn the ropes as much as you can – and as quickly as you can. When you graduate from college, get an internship – or even while you’re at college. A summer job would be great too. Even when you get your first job, learning the ropes is important, so that you can begin to establish yourself in the right ways.

 

Practice Your Craft

But then also, you need to dedicate yourself to this. It’s really not just enough for you to learn in college and then never look at a piece or writing education ever again. The best writers are those that are constantly learning. So make sure that you’re reading leading work, and that you’re practicing your craft constantly too. Practice makes perfect! Never forget that. 

 

Avoid Fake News

Finally, as tempting as it can be to get suckered in by different news articles and sensationalism. But if you know that you want to be a reputable journalist, then you just cannot get sucked in by it all. Instead, you have to make sure that you’re picking out fake news, as seen in the infographic below, and aiming to make your work a lot better. This will make sure that your career is not only successful but rewarding too. Reporting fake news never ends well. Don’t be tempted no matter what.

Dealing with anxiety as a self employed person

*Collaborative post.

Self employment has always been the dream, and I am grateful I am able to live this life especially with my kids being so young. But being self-employed comes with an unstable income. The uncertainty can be very worrying and the worry could lead to serious anxiety if you let it. I have been a mum for over 5 years now, while running my online business by the side and I have picked up many ways of dealing with anxiety as a self-employed person. Here are a few of the ways I combat anxiety.

Save the money

Running your own business means sometimes it rains with money and sometimes it doesn’t. I have always been more of a saver than a spender, so that helped me in this self-employed journey. I always put money away just incase an unexpected bill comes up, or business becomes really slow the next month. Saving the left over money means I don’t worry about paying my bills the next month.

Ageing my money helps me deal with anxiety, and it is one tip I always recommend to business owners. Save that money. It may come in handy in a few months.

 

Have faith

I don’t really talk about my faith on here because it is not a faith blog, but I believe in God. That faith helps me when anxiety comes knocking. I am a very spiritual person, and my active spiritual life helps me deal with issues that seem impossible.

It may not be your cup of tea but it works great for me. I can’t imagine living a life without my faith in God.

 

Self care

When you are working for yourself, it may be very hard to take out time for self-care. I have started paying more attention to my mental health and the extra attention helps me stay on top of my self-care, which helps get rid of any anxiety. It could be a nice long walk on a beautiful sunny day, or going for a relaxing massage at the spa, or watching a movie at the cinema.

Self care is very important especially when you are a 1 man team.

Take your work seriously

I take my work very seriously and I think that helps me get a steady flow of income. I work every free time I get (more than 40 hours a week) and I believe I am the true definition of a hustler. Nowadays I try to take the as much time as I can afford to take off but I am always working. That helps me stay on top of my bills, keeps my mind busy and get rid of any anxiety.

 

Music helps

Music is good way for me to escape all my problems. It is like food to my soul and I feed on it everyday. I love listening to good music. My Spotify playlists come in very handy. You can easily catch me typing up a post and listening to some cool songs.
