How to Solve the Biggest Problems with Information Overload

It seems like an undemanding dream for most writers to being able to write quality content more and more. And it’s not about the topic of writing, it’s about the way content is written.

Information overload is often glossed over to the side since writers focus on keeping their articles honest, 100% original, and reader-friendly. And ever since I’ve begun writing about products, technologies, processes, etc. in different industries, I’ve come to realize that Information Overload ruined my content quality and transformed it into a mundane description with no creativity or personality. It can destroy some of your best ideas and distract readers into believing that you’ve just aimlessly typed down the key points of your article with no style whatsoever. No writer wants that.

What can you do?

It’s time we solved the biggest problems with Information Overload in content writing. And I’m here to show you how you can tackle them efficiently and productively.

ALIGN YOUR PRIMARY SUBJECT

There are a variety of different things you want to write about and the best way to combine 2-3 different ideas is by clearing defining the ‘why’ before you allow readers to jump to conclusions with your article. You want them to know what those ideas are and how they’re related to each other. Even if you write about multiple ideas in one single article- let’s say it’s a 1000 word article- your content HAS to be centered towards a single primary subject. That way your readers know what they’re reading about without getting too confused with the information you present to them and you write more transparently.

FOCUS ON NOT MORE THAN 3 FACTS/FEATURES/FIGURES FOR YOUR PARAGRAPH

To write better, focus more on the rhythm of your writing and less on broadcasting all the essential facts or features in the first paragraph. Distribute your content like you would paint on a canvas because it has to look meaningful and it has to rouse some response in the mind of the reader.

KEEP SOME RELATED ARTICLES OPEN FOR REFERENCE

Just for experimenting sakes, open some articles published on other websites about the primary subject that you’re writing about. You never know you might get some insightful phrase or word to present yours more efficiently and creatively. Allowing yourself to get acquainted with other similarly fashioned articles is a good practice to writing with more confidence and awareness. Your writing should be responsive and the only way you can make it is by staying vigilant and tuned-in.

DON’T OVERDO ELABORATION

Information Overload just doesn’t mean too much information, it can also mean too much repetition of the same subject matter over and over again. When you’re writing facts, it can get difficult to twist and turn sentences to make it look less crowded, but if you’re current on the way talented writers curate fresh articles based on researched facts and figures, you’d be surprised at how their content is well-defined and seasoned for most readers. Elaborated content can be boring and that’s why we call it ‘redundant’. The best solution here to research more about your primary subject to find some interesting loopholes that you can experiment with to make your article look more interesting and up-to-date.

New and Useful Content Creating Tactics That Will Improve Your Writing

Content is a time tested strategy with major persuasive shifts in how businesses and brands communicate, not only to sell, but to bond with people on a more personal, yet easily relatable level. Content marketing initiatives have, over time, influenced directly our online time, from planning to execution.

Normal consumers may not realize this phenomenon, but content has drastically changed how they understand and make major purchasing decisions over time. For content creation companies, good content is something that changes with trends, tactics, channels, and even with the way consumers consume content from different demographics.

With such content marketing evolution, what exactly do you need to know moving forward? Here my 5 New and Useful Content Creating Tactics to consider that will drastically improve your writing skills and make it more unique as per your professional or personal ambitions.

TURN YOUR EMAIL INBOX INTO A BLOG IDEAS HAVEN:

If you are having trouble creating new content, simply subscribe to different niche blogs and pick up their blog posts to create a well-defined blog idea calendar that can keep you buttoned up for the whole next week, or even month!

CHOOSE A FRIENDLY TONE, NOT A METHODICAL ONE:

Your writing is more understood, resonated with, and finally, appreciated if its friendly. Consider your writing a clear reflection of you when somebody wishes to speak to you, if you’re monotonous and methodical the first time- your speech is factual, but no companionable vibe, it’s a direct no-no. You want your readers to feel the same way about your writing as they would if they meet you in person- sociable and welcoming.

WRITE WHAT YOU READ ABOUT:

On a more personal note, this simple tactic has encouraged my mind into writing more often and about versatile topics. It doesn’t matter if you excel in business writing or creative writing, as a content writer, it’s the highest in personal effort when you indulge in creating many-sided pieces, each with a different approach and message.

DON’T FORGET SOCIAL MEDIA CONTENT:

This tactic is actually the method that inspired this post. The internet is bombarded with such versatile content on contrasting web pages that the kind of social media content that climactically directs one to those particular pages is often overlooked. One of the most common ways to create content that is centered around what’s happening on the internet is to look at social media content and how businesses, personal bloggers, brands, etc. are leveraging audiences on it.

ADDS NEW IDEAS/WORDS/PHRASES AS YOU WRITE:

It’s one thing to burn midnight oil to improve your writing skills, as time passes, but it’s another to quickly employ new ideas as you write. Both methods are equally rewarding and essential to do. But, this simple tactic will help you commit to memory and practice what you preach when it comes to content creation. Personally, I found this tactic to be the most helpful because when something is written down on paper or typed on a word document- it’s remembered for a long time- especially when you’re iterating new suggestions in the time of creating new content.
