If you’re new to Literacy Base you may be thinking. “I don’t know where to start or what to write about but you know you want to be a part of it so you hit the ground running… Maybe you’ve been a part of the site for a while but are having difficulties, feel frustrated and it seems like it’s just not working out for you.
The big question is,”Will you still be here in 3 months time, 6 months, a year?”
Some people who joined LB were last active 10 months ago. We can’t be sure why they left but it is a good possibility it had something to do with low interaction, couldn’t find something to write about, loss of interest and so on.
If you really want to make this work for you, I’ve put together a few helpful easy tips that will turn you into a pro in no time.
Literacy Base – Writing Tips
1. Interaction is a MUST
(It’s so important to interact act with others and not just focus on the money making aspect of it all. There is no quick way to make money. It takes time, determination, and dedication.)
2. Pace Yourself
(Set a time frame that works for you and your followers will come. If you try doing it every day there are a few things that can happen, which is probably the same reason as those who were last active 10 months ago. By pacing yourself, you’ll find that your writing will improve and others will get the benefit of taking away something from your work)
3. Schedule Posts
Tuesday and Thursday Write a New Post.
Friday is Blog Day.
(By putting yourself on a set schedule you’ll find that in the long run, you can accomplish more.)
4. Brand Yourself
Become an LB Tech Writer, Home and Garden How-To Contributor. Writing about what you know is the quickest way to gain credibility and followers.
(Branding oneself is a great way to gain more followers and it can really open doors for you in the writing world.)
5. Start a Group
(You might think starting a group just isn’t right for you. But everyone has experience in something and the ability to help others. You just need a little encouragement. In fact, people write volunteer services down all the time on their resume’s and employers really like to see people making an effort, a contribution.)
I hope you found this post helpful. Let me know how it works out for you. Have other tips that you find helpful? I’d love to hear about them.
