How LinkedIn Users Taught Me to Be a Quality Content Writer
I have been a quality content writer and strategist for the better part of fifteen years. Over the years, I was taught the importance of competitiveness. You have to offer your clients something that sets you apart from the competition. As such, I continuously found ways to underscore the value of my so-called “competitors.” Recently, LinkedIn users taught me a valuable lesson about competition and how to be a better writer.
I Have NO Competitors
You read that right, and no, I’m not tooting my own horn here. There are so many qualified individuals out there who offer great content writing services. In fact, I’ve managed to connect with many of those amazing writers. Through the LinkedIn platform, we help each other grow. I value them, and they value me. We bounce ideas off one another to help ensure we commit to being a quality content writer to meet your needs.
The problem with writers who claim to be better than any other quality content writer is they are offering you something that doesn’t exist. Anyone can claim they are the best at something. A highly skilled writer knows that it is important to pay homage to others out there. Those talented individuals are not my competitors because we can each benefit from one another.
Let Me Explain…
As someone who has been writing as long as I have, there are not very many topics I struggle to write. In fact, I embrace challenging topics. However, every writer has weaknesses and strength. A quality content writer can recognize his or her strengths and weaknesses. For instance, a writer may be too inundated to take on more work. Perhaps the writer is unable to approach your topic or writing needs.
Rather than falling prey to those weaknesses, a skilled writer can make connections among the writing community. That writer will then use those connections to make necessary recommendations based on your needs. In other words, rather than viewing other writers as competitors, I view them as potential partners. We can help one another grow by passing on work to each other when we know it plays to our strengths.
Find a Writer That Cares
When you work with a quality content writer, find one that cares about your needs. Do not fall victim to inflated promises. You deserve a writer that is willing to provide you with honesty, which includes recommending you to someone else if necessary. A writer without connections raises a red flag. How in touch and qualified is a writer if he or she does not have connections with other like-minded individuals?
