Is there anyone here who was frustrated as I was last year for spending your time to post stuff and only a few of your friends seemed to like, view or comment on it. Well, here are some tips we can use to make content richer, likable and irresistible. Consider these 4 Cs with me;
4 Skills That Will Make Your Content Irresistible
1. Clarity – Be so clear in your mind first of what you wish to pass across. Think and clarify your thoughts well before you put them down. Most people will always appreciate well thought out posts and not irrelevant, incompressible stuff. Don’t be in the habit of quickly putting together ideas that don’t add up especially on your most serious posts. Wacha zile random za hapa kule news.
2. Conviction – this is to me the most important. Do you believe that what you post adds any value to people? Are you on a mission to empower on anything or you are just posting for FOMO (Fear of missing out) People with conviction in whatever they are out to do are so hard to resist. But copying things from Twitter to post on your FB wall to appear like you are also not small won’t help much. Identify something you have some level of authority or expertise over and focus your content around the same
3. Communication skills – let me zero in on just written communication for now since this is a wide subject. Deliberately invest a little time and improve on your writing skills daily. It’s a powerful skill you will need in almost every area from school to the market place. You don’t wake up one morning and you find yourself a compelling veteran writer it takes time. And please ensure before you post out edit your stuff properly. People are busy on social media to have time and try to figure out what you meant. And one more thing. For you to be a better writer you definitely need to be a good reader. Good readers are good writers. There are no two ways about it. Begin reading good books and your writing will improve tremendously.
4. Creativity – this is basically the ability to create provocative, educative and exciting content that your leaders will enjoy reading. Don’t just type and post random thoughts. We all fight that temptation. The truth is when you think well and piece something together people will read and be wowed. Be creative in how you deliver it as well. By the way that is why we wrote compositions in school.
To sharpen our writing skills. I will share more tips on this here a little later. Did you find this helpful in a small way? If you did why don’t you just share it for others to benefit as well.
I hope and pray that your friends will love, comment and share your posts this year because they will be inspirational and impactful.
