The task of writing regular blog articles for the blog section of a website is a time-consuming task.
You may love your job, but sometimes it takes up so much of your time that it doesn’t allow you to develop your work in other areas, so it can start to burn you out.
And that’s not what we want, we want you to continue liking your work as much as you did at the beginning, because that’s when you work best and things go smoothly.
So, in order for you to continue enjoying what you were so passionate about, we are going to give you some tips so that you can do it faster, and with the same quality.
We (we think) it works for us, as we write 2 posts a week, but you’d better have your say, right?
Watch out, we’re starting.
Why it is important to write blog articles fast
The importance of writing articles faster, we believe, is implicit, but just in case we are going to tell you about it.
The most essential reason to write faster is: to save time.
Yes, we know, we all often have time on our hands, so many things to do and so few hours on the clock.
And sometimes, even if we plan ahead, it is impossible to get everything done. That’s why it’s important to know how to write articles faster.
By applying the following tips, we will also be able to avoid getting stuck on the subject of the article, because everything will run more smoothly. This way we won’t get stuck and we won’t waste time.
8 tips to write blog articles faster
In order to help you reduce the number of hours you spend on writing from 4 to 2, for example, we are going to give you some tips that you will be able to put into practice perfectly.
1. Think about who you are targeting
You need to know what kind of audience you are targeting, because this will help you to know what tone to use when writing.
Moreover, if you know what their tastes are, you can attack them there, appealing to their emotions.
2. Take your time on the title
The title is the first thing they read in the article, so it’s something that has to grab them right away to make them want to read the whole thing.
There are several recipes for creating an attention-grabbing title, the most effective of which is to make it clear that it is a list of something.
Like for example “8 tips to write blog articles faster”. Hehe, yes, that’s the one in this article, but if you’ve come this far it’s because the title initially caught your attention for a reason.
3. Make a themed notebook
Yes, of course, before creating the title, you should have a notepad with themes.
You can have a space where if you come up with topics and ideas with which to create articles, you can add them.
Then, when it’s time to start drafting, you only have to choose one.
4. Solve a problem for the reader
Think about whether the topic you have chosen solves any problems or needs of the reader with the article.
If it doesn’t solve anything, it won’t be useful information for him, so he will be less likely to open it and read it.
5. Choose a keyword and target it
Before starting to write, the planning should include a keyword study, and above all an essential keyword that will be the target keyword.
You will have to take it, and attack it. That is to say, with that keyword you will know where to go.
You’ll know that you’ll have to add it in the title, in some subtitles, in the introduction, and in some alt attributes of your images, so you’ve got a win.
But don’t overdo it and over-optimise it because it will harm you.
6. Outline the structure of the article
We do this a lot in Kiwop.
To go faster, one person does the planning for the whole month, and then the person who writes the articles (present! hehe) first implements the title, the SEO meta title sections, and the H2 and H3 to have the article organised with its structure.
That way, we know what we want to tell, and the ideas sort themselves out in our minds.
Once you have the skeleton in place, you can start writing.
7. First write in one go
If inspiration has come to you, you write non-stop, whatever comes to you and whatever you want to tell.
Once you have everything written down, there is time to modify and polish details.
But never waste that moment.
8. The final ingredient of copywriting
Finally, after writing and modifying it, you should add the finishing touch: the copywriting.
Read it again and add those touches such as verbs that call the reader to action, write a metaphor or a story that can empathise with the user.
We are going to use ourselves as a practical example.
As mentioned above, first one person in the team creates a calendar for the whole month.
In this Excel, there are more fields such as the meta title, meta description, etc.
In this way, the writer no longer has to think about the topic, the title or the keywords to be targeted.
When the time comes, the writer takes the content section as a reference, creates the skeleton in a WordPress draft, and fills in the SEO optimization fields.
Then you just have to look for references, get ideas on what to write about and get down to work putting the above tips into practice.
Now you can quickly write blog articles
You no longer have excuses to say that you don’t have time to write an article and stop being consistent in publishing content.
We have told you how important it is to write them quickly and how to do it, you just have to put it into practice.
Come on, you can be Usain Bolts writing articles.
