Nowadays, content marketing has been taken into focus. Readers demand high-quality content and due to the excellent content quality requirement, the content marketing tools have increased at large. For years, several tools have existed which have now been revised, in addition to new tools. You can manage your workflow on Trello, write and save your documents on Google Docs, publish them on WordPress, and time your work or check how long do you take to complete your work via the Timely app. The content marketing tools have so much for the writers and non-content writers.
Marketing 101 says that you have to pave the path of least resistance if you want to get your audience to take action. For many marketers that means watering down a message so it’s easy for the masses to understand.
This is a mistake.
Although you want to make the decision to purchase from you easy, you don’t want to dilute your content too much. Your customer is on your website, consuming your content for a reason. She wants to learn something new. She has a problem she wants you to solve. The more simplistic your writing is, the less value you’re able to offer.

I of all people understand that small businesses have small budgets, and that every expense should be scrutinized. I am the queen of DIY, in an effort to save a few bucks.
But I also understand the value of hiring help where it’s needed. While I’m a professional content writer, you probably aren’t.
Do you really think writing your own content is the best way to reach your audience? If you’re not skilled at writing — or just don’t enjoy it — that will come off in how your brand is portrayed to potential business.
The last thing you want to do is turn off the very people you want as your customers.
As you build your marketing budget for this year, let me give you a few arguments for hiring a professional content writer.
Creating content is challenging, but figuring out how to create engaging content is even more so. In a study conducted by Moz and Buzzsumo, up to 75% of the million online articles they analyzed were not engaging content, which is alarming when you remember that lack of engagement means you fail in eliciting transformation that will convert your readers into leads or sales.
The answer to this problem, however, doesn’t rely on making more and more content and hoping that some of them resonates with your audience – it’s about making more content that are high quality and engaging – something that your audience would be genuinely interested in and would give them what they actually need to know.
