15 Experts Discuss The Secrets To Write Effectively As Entrepreneurs

There is not a single person on the planet that doesn’t use written communication every day. If you are hiring a virtual assistant, you need to be able to give them crystal-clear instructions. If you’re trying to get a client, it helps to be comfortable using your words to get them on board. Content marketing is huge and blowing up even more in 2017. More stuff is being put out there and Google is learning how to get rid of the crap.

 Writing well is probably your greatest SEO strategy.  Think about all the ways you write to people every day: texting, tweeting, blogging, email. The have two things in common which is ‘communication’ and being able to ‘reach out to others.’

Your ability to write, convince and repair the hearts of your readers is essential to your success. No matter how much personal preparation you have made for the journey of winning through your writing talent, there will be obstacles ahead which you never dreamed of. Writing well can make you more valuable to your brand, and attract the attention of people who can help convince people to believe in your writing talent than others who do not write as well.

One of the most precious skills you have is your ability to think well and to express yourself clearly – Brian Tracy

The skill of ‘self expression’ can help you earn more and get promoted faster as much as any other talent you can develop. One vital thing to note is that ‘writing talent’ is not made, it is developed. Having an ability to do something simply means developing your skill to stand and defend what you know how to do. Before now I trust you know that the only way through which you develop your mastery of a subject is by expressing your thoughts, ideas and experiences in a clear manner and in writing.
For your sake, I reached out to some experts to help you learn to maximize your career as a writer and entrepreneur, the right way from their own life practical personal experience. Unlike some experts roundup post out there for consume, this one is exceptional and the best of its kind.
 
Are you telling your story from your unique perspective?
Entrepreneurs are basically independent problem solvers. This is so because we see an opportunity in a problem that people are having and then create something to solve it. This takes a lot of thinking and wading through a lot of bad ideas. Writing is one of the best ways you can see whether your solution actually makes sense. It’s like the pre-test to the validation test.
Your business is your source of finance and fulfillment. That should be reason enough to learn to write well. If you can’t clearly put a business strategy into words, how is anyone going to follow it? How will you follow it? How will you know if it even makes any sense? Writing will help you think about your business goals and how to get there, the right way.
It is time to get a life.
 
You’ve got so many ideas running through your brain. You need to put the ideas that have been swimming around in your head on paper and make new for the fresh ones.

My biggest mistake was charging clients too low. When I realized that I should be charging based on the result I give to clients and not the length of article, I increased my price. Of course, some clients who could not afford my new rate had to drop. Those who appreciate the value I add to their business keep giving me gigs.

2. What is the best thing you’ve done when it comes to writepreneurship?
Honing my skills everyday. This I do by reading and writing a lot. I also follow experts who are in my field.
3. If you could change one thing about your writing career, what would it be?
I will change nothing. I live and breathe writing
4. What is your number one tip for writepreneurs (writers/entrepreneurs)?
Never for one day think you’ve arrived. Read and write everyday. Always seek out for opportunities to hone your writing skills

1. What is the biggest mistake you made when you first started your writing career?

2. What is the best thing you’ve done when it comes to writepreneurship?
I got to know in the very beginning that the only way to improve your writing skills is to read and write. Nothing else can make someone a good writer as fast as these two steps of reading and writing can do.

Any system to judge the credibility of client accurately to avoid any issue later on and don’t waste my time to assess the credibility with manual methods.

1. What is the biggest mistake you made when you first started your writing career?
My biggest writing mistake was not trusting enough in my skills. I felt there are so many things that I didn’t know, thought I can start writing articles after I read every post or course about blogging I can find. The truth is that if you wait to become an expert and then write posts, you will know a lot of theory but you will lose a lot of time. Learn, apply and teach others at the same time. 
2. What is the best thing you’ve done when it comes to writepreneurship?
The best thing I did as a writer was to start using Grammarly. English is not my native language, and because of that, my writings were full of typos and grammar mistakes. Thanks to Grammarly, my English improved a lot, and my posts now look more professionally written.
3. If you could change one thing about your writing career, what would it be?
I would have started writing a long time before I did. 
4. What is your number one tip for writepreneurs (writers/entrepreneurs)?
Come up with a publishing schedule and stick to it. Even if your first posts are clumsy or too short, if you promote them well, you can gain traffic from social media. With time and practice, you will become better. 
5. One quote for writepreneurs
To learn how to write great posts, you first have to write boring articles. You can’t create a masterpiece at your first attempt.

1. What is the biggest mistake you made when you first started your writing career?

The biggest mistake I made when I started my writing career back then in 2012 was trying to be everything to everybody on my blog and social media platforms. I wrote and published virtually anything my fresh mind could conceive.

It was at the point I wanted to monetize my blog that the consequences started surfacing. It is sad most young entrepreneurs are still repeating same mistake – they write about entrepreneurship, politics, football, entertainment etc on one blog and expect high paying clients to find them. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way.

Niching down is the best thing any entrepreneur can do for themselves.

2. What is the best thing you’ve done when it comes to writepreneurship?
The best thing I have done is having my own blog. There’s a limit to how much wealth you can create online as a writer if you don’t have a blog. Entrepreneur Business Blog serves as my online office that makes it easy for me to attract clients when others are chasing them.

When I talk about owning a blog I don’t mean a free-hosted blog. You should get a self-hosted blog if you are serious to kick into the 6 digit figures writing class. I highly recommendWordPress.

3. If you could change one thing about your writing career, what would it be?
I want to have 90% of my writing clients from either USA, UAE or both. So far, I have been able to get over 90% of my Twitter followers from the West. Learn how I built ithere.

4. What is your number one tip for writepreneurs (writers/entrepreneurs)?
If you want to be relevant and stand out from the crowd, never stop sharing quality content with your audience.

5. One quote for writepreneurs

If you can think well, you can also write well.

1. What is the biggest mistake you made when you first started your writing career?

Without having a domain of my own I started writing on third party platforms.  I think this is the biggest mistake I made when I first started my blogging journey.

2. What is the best thing you’ve done when it comes to writepreneurship?
The best thing I did is that I purchased a domain for myself (in my name) and the connected activities.

3. If you could change one thing about your writing career, what would it be?
Yes, the only thing I wanted to change is to maintain a new writing schedule. At present I am doing it intermittently – need to fix this and to maintain a regular writing schedule.

4. What is your number one tip for writepreneurs (writers/entrepreneurs)? 
Even if you are a good writer, you need to continue reading regularly like you were once (I am sure most of the writers were good readers too). 
Yes, a good writer will be a good reader too! 
So do not stop that, continue reading other ‘bloggers’ posts and try to respond to it with your constructive comments.  Please do not just post generic comments or one line comments, read well and express your genuine opinion, suggestion or addition if any.  I have posted recently a post explaining a bit more on this subject. You can read that here

I am a content writer and marketer who love to writer about internet marketing. He aims to create detailed and actionable content that moves the needle and makes an impact on the user. He takes on a step-by-step approach in his articles and is obsessed with extremely detailed articles.
1. What is the biggest mistake you made when you first started your writing career?
Writing less. When it comes to writing, the more you write, the better you become. In my early days, I didn’t have the habit of writing a lot.
Writing 1000-words in a day sounded like a big challenge to me. But now, it’s just a walk in the park. With consistent writing, I can now write over 8000-words in just a day.
2. What is the best thing you’ve done when it comes to writepreneurship?
Writing content that helps people; when someone compliments your work, that feeling is magical. It makes me want to do more and help people as much as I can.
That’s why I write content that is detailed, well-researched and most importantly helpful.
3. If you could change one thing about your writing career, what would it be?
Manage time for producing more content. Time is an obstacle many people face. It’s not that I don’t have time at all. There are tasks other than writing that eat up my time.
So, managing my time is something I try to change every single day.
4. What is your number one tip for writepreneurs (writers/entrepreneurs)?
Focus on building an email list.
5. One quote for writepreneurs

Don’t write because you have to, write because you want to.

I have expertise in WordPress theme development and customization. I can set up and redesign the Thesis themes. I have been working in this field for years now.

 
1. What is the biggest mistake you made when you first started your writing career?
One of the biggest mistakes you can make is to believe in others so much that you try to adapt their writing style. Well, this can turn out to be fatal because after a few days you wouldn’t feel comfortable.
Never leave the way you’re. Embrace what you have by practicing more and more. You don’t need to be like someone. You have your own writing style which is enough to allure your readers.
2. What is the best thing you’ve done when it comes to writepreneurship?
In every business, you should always focus on the quality. I have always believed that if you want to be someone people can get inspired from then give them a reason. Show what you got. To become a better writer, you need to devote your time and efforts. Never compare your article with others.
3. If you could change one thing about your writing career, what would it be?
Well, I would change the time I started. Though it’s never too late but I could do that the way before I did. But it’s always good to see that people love what I write.
We all feel like this is not the perfect time but if you keep thinking like this, you can’t start anything. So start writing now.
 
4. What is your number one tip for writepreneurs (writers/entrepreneurs)?
Think about your readers before you publish any article. You’re writing for them, not for a robot. People like to get connect and your content should make them feel like learning something.
 
5. One quote for writepreneurs

Success kisses those who value consistency.

2. What is the best thing you’ve done when it comes to writepreneurship?

3. If you could change one thing about your writing career, what would it be?
I would like to add more humour in my writing style so people don’t loose attention in my article. Though I use a lot of pictures and videos but there is no match of class humour which relates to the topic too on which I’m writing.

4. What is your number one tip for writepreneurs (writers/entrepreneurs)?
Competitive Analysis: So you got the niche? You know how to write articles well? okay, that’s not important. The most important thing is understanding the market which includes studying your competitors as well your eventual user’s who are going to read your articles. What do they want from you?

You can’t be a successful writepreneur if you aren’t consistent in whatever you doing

Writing is something you should be passionate about and build better the more you write. That is why I encourage all writers to speak up and share their opinion rather than conforming to the opinions of others because they feel they should. It is what builds us as humans and add great value to our relationship with others.

I’d like to say a huge thank you for all of the experts above that took the time to take part and share for the benefit of this awesome community. Thank you all.

Now, I’d love to hear from you.

Do you have any insights of your own to share?
