How do I become a Content Writer?
Becoming a Content Writer in 2023 is easy and it’ll depend on what exactly you want to do and how much money you want to earn.
We’d suggest the following path:
- completing a few courses on Coursera and/or Udemy. These are great sources of knowledge and you can learn a lot about the industry there.
- check out profiles of Content Writers on Fiverr, UpWork and similar websites. This will give you an idea of how it works in the real world.
- do a bit of freelancing on the abovementioned platforms. You need to practice and think of this as volunteer work and don’t expect the big bucks straight away – you’re new to the field! You need to build your portfolio and get the hang of things.
- look for entry-level jobs when you feel ready. LinkedIn is a great place for that.
And last, but not least, learn about AI writing tools. This is so important that we’ve dedicated a whole paragraph to it – make sure you read it!
What are AI writing tools?
AI writing tools are programs that use artificial intelligence (AI) to assist with the writing process and they can be extremely useful. There are different types of tools that can help you as a Content Writer:
- Grammar & spelling checkers. These go through your text and identify grammar and spelling errors. Of course, they also suggest corrections.
- Content generators. These are game changers because they actually use AI to generate original content based on the parameters you inputted! You can use them to create articles, social media posts, marketing copies, web copies, and more.
- Style suggestion tools. These actually go hand-in-hand with the grammar & spelling checkers because they improve the tone, style, and readability of the text. The best one we’ve used is definitely Grammarly.
- Plagiarism checkers. As their name suggest, these check for plagiarism and that way, ensure you don’t get into any legal trouble.
It’s important to know that some AI writing tools that are used by the Content Writers are standalone programs. Others are integrated into other apps.
Regardless of that, AI writing tools are useful for Content Writers, Marketing Specialist, students, and business professionals alike.
