6 skills that can make you better than 90% of writers out there

I edited 200 blogs in 3 months (avg 2000–8000 words). Here’s what I found separates good writers from the average ones:

1. They read the brief thoroughly

2. They create an article outline before writing

And yup, you can tell while editing if someone did this or not.

3. They follow the brand’s guidelines

4. They keep the use of adjectives & fillers to a minimum

5. They optimize the article for user experience

6. They edit their copy after they’ve written it

Anyone looking to monetize their writing and make this their career field should work on these skills alongside working on improving the way they communicate. Simply building these skills can make you better than 90% of the writers out there.
