Blogging challenges and how to overcome them

When writing business blogs, there are several things that you need to take into consideration. They include the length of blogs, the quality of the content, information that needs to be added according to the target audience, etc. Indeed, content writing is not as easy as it seems. You may consider hiring a freelance content writer in Mumbai or simply hire a team of writers for your company. However, there are quite a few challenges that you may experience when you start with the blogging process. In this article, we talk about these blogging challenges and how do you overcome them.

Understanding the target audience

This is like one of the most common challenges faced by content writers. There are times when you may be confused about who would be reading the article that you are writing. For instance, if you are writing on a topic that talks about trucks, you may be confused about what types of trucks you should be writing about. This is because there are pickup trucks and then there are heavy duty trucks. You need to understand who is going to read your blog. If the person is an individual who likes driving pickup trucks, then your blog should be focused on consumers. But if you are talking about heavy duty trucks, then it’s mostly the business owners who are into logistics or have their own manufacturing units and want to transport the goods.

To overcome this challenge, you need to visit the client’s website and understand their expertise and the products they are offering. Take a look into what are the types of trucks that they deal in. Even after doing so if you are confused about the target audience, ask the client for clarification. This helps in knowing their target audience, and you will be on your way to writing an outstanding article.

Beginning the article

Many writers face this challenge. When you have a topic ready you often wonder “How will I start the blog? What should be my introduction?” This is a challenge for me too at times. But I’ve found a way around it. When you are confused about how to start the article, go back to the research process and read the research articles thoroughly. This gives you an idea of how other writers have written the blog. I agree that this can take more time. But then it’s better to take more time and write a better article than completing the article for the sake of it and then rewriting it because the client did not like the first draft.

Writer’s block

This is dreadful. This is horrifying. If you are a content writer in Mumbai, you already know what this means. But there’s no need to worry. I’ve found ways around this challenge. When you feel like you have a writer’s block, try switching projects. When you work on a different project, your mind starts getting free of the previous thought process and allows you to focus better. Another way of overcoming the writer’s block is by taking a break from work. Go for a walk, listen to music, talk to someone (make sure that their work is not being affected in the process), etc. Once you feel free and relaxed, go back to writing the article that you were working on. This time with a better mindset.

Failing to Meet Deadlines

I call deadlines as dread-lines. Every content writer is worried about not being able to meet the expectations and deliver on time. To overcome this challenge, you need to ensure that you have a schedule. This schedule can help you in knowing the day when you are supposed to submit the blog to the client. The schedule will help you complete all the blogs on time.

Concluding that article

Some writers find it difficult to conclude the article. So, the next time you find yourself in this situation, include a call to action in the conclusion. The basic idea behind this is the reader has read your entire article and now you need to direct the reader to do something. Therefore, you can include a call to action such as “for more information, contact us”, “book your appointment with us today”, “let the experts do the task for you”, etc. Adding such calls to actions can add more meaning to the content for the conclusion of your article. You can even consider summarizing the entire article in a few sentences.

Blogging is beneficial for organizations as they help in increasing their online presence and helps to increase your website’s SEO rank in the search results.  But creating blogs requires efforts and time. If you do not have an internal resource to write your business blogs, then it would be difficult to get the work done on time from a freelancer especially when you have several blogs to write. Therefore, to overcome this challenge it is better that you get in touch a content writing agency who will do the work for you.
