Cheap content writer versus affordable content writer

During my research for keyword analysis, I found many of those in need of articles or website content use the term cheap content writers! Well I do understand they are really on the look out for affordable content writers who can write quality articles. Ironically the phrase cheap content writers gets more attention than affordable content writer.

While cheap content writer in English could mean that the content of the writer is not of high quality. But every content writer who wants to be visible in the internet has to go by the keywords that people search for! In SEO writing the term cheap content writer really works.

Well, how do yo find quality article writers? Indian content writers are categorized among the top writers for the web. While a native English writer can cost you an arm and a leg, Indian content writers provide high quality articles at highly competitive rates. However, some of them who tag themselves as writers are really not professionals.

If you like to hire an Indian content writer, it is wise to ask for samples so that you can check the flow, grammar, and writing skills.

Web content writer versus lecturer

I had earlier mentioned that writing for the web is very different from the English taught in your school or college. In this article I shall give you a few examples of language usage in the internet.

I had been working as a lecturer in English in Nehru Memorial College (Autonomous) one of the most prestigious institutions in Tamil nadu, which is a pioneer that introduced the popular computer science as UG degree course for the first time in India.

When I was a lecturer I used to insist on the so called Queen’s English, whereas, being a freelance content writer I prefer American over the British English. American English servers better when it comes to writing for the web.

One other thing is the use of pronoun. I have always told my students that repeating nouns again and again (excluding the ones used for the purpose of clarity) in writings will result in a form of error called redundancy, which is viewed seriously by some of the orthodox teachers of English. But when it comes to writing for search engine optimization you will have to repeat the keywords in order to attain the required keyword density. If you are new to SEO, a glance at my profile will really astonish you. [However, as a lecturer I would certainly not recommend this type of writing for your term papers. This is only for article writers who write for the web]

I came across few websites that offer free web templates, free hosting services, free banners, free widgets, free articles, and even free SEO services! In fact, internet is a true source of earning a living without investment. All you need to earn through internet is a computer and an internet connection. If you are willing to do some research you can host a website of your own without spending a dime! And what surprised me is that there are various programs that help you earn good sum.

Effective content for brochures

The marketing strategy includes a definition of your business, a description of your products and services, locating your target users or clients, and your company's role in the ongoing competition. Some of the effective marketing materials include Brochures, Pamphlets, PowerPoint Presentation, Internet Ad Banners, Radio Announcements, Television shows, and Articles etc. Brochure is one of the time tested marketing tools, and this article attempts to make it more effective.

Avoid common errors in brochures

Marketing professionals write materials that emphasize the business background and brand rather than the benefits the company offers. This creates a challenge when these materials are given to the sales team as collateral. Brochures should persuade your prospects and inform people that you have something valuable to offer them.
To create marketing materials that sell, you need to incorporate the following in it.
•Define the nature of your product or service and specify all the features that would be of interest to the potential consumer.
•Position your product or service to define clearly how you are different from your competitors.
•Write your marketing content with your target audience in mind. Doing a demographic study of your prospects is always essential.
•Make your collateral easy to understand. It must be friendly uncluttered, persuasive, and involving.

Is it good to be unique?

Being unique is a good thing, but sometimes you can be too unique to be good. If you decide to create a completely new specimen, you may be attempting an experiment that many others had already tried and failed. It is sometimes better to copy successful models than to be original and sick.

Language and style

Identify your potential customers, find out the most effective way to inform your potential customers, Look closely at your target market, their age, sex, profession, income level and educational level. A positive approach always brings in a good catch. A simple language can bring better results; remember it’s for your customers to understand, and it’s not for you to expose your language skills.

Clarity and brevity

As the time taken by the average reader to glance at the cover of a brochure is less than 5 seconds your headline on the cover of your brochure needs to be eye catching. People are too busy to read and appreciate long essays that describe elaborately in a poetic language. Let your content be precise and brief so that it creates an impact at the first glance. As human nature is to be inquisitive a thought provoking content that makes them inquire is also an effective writing style for brochures.


The most important part that makes the brochure an effective marketing tool is the way you present your subject. Balance your text with graphics, use appealing colors that will attract any one. A glossy look will enhance the beauty of your brochure. Remember a thing of beauty is a joy for ever. A sturdy brochure can make multiple impacts. Add aesthetics to your brochure and beautify your effective marketing tool.
