Before you hit the infographic, can you think of any common mistakes you see when browsing through online content? You’re frustrated by grammar mistakes, aren’t you? Sometimes you read a post with great potential, but a their instead of they’re ruins the entire impression. How do you know you’re not making similar mistakes? Are you editing and proofreading your content to perfection? If not, you can be sure that some grammar, syntax, and spelling flaws went unnoticed by you. Did they go unnoticed by your audience? Probably not.
Let’s think of another flaw. Do your research your articles well? Do you bother to provide an authoritative source of information for each and every argument that you’re trying to present as a fact? If that’s not the case, you’re making another common mistake: under-researched content.
Let’s try something else: keywords! You know you have to use them, so your content will drive traffic towards a website. But, are you using keywords properly? What if you’re stuffing the article with them, so Google perceives it as spam? You have to be careful with this.

Very informative article, Lucy. Being a content writer I have learnt so many things from this post. Thanks.
This is a great post Lucy. I especially like the part where you talk about “not knowing who your readers are “. I have faced this this problem in the past and it is very important to overcome this problem or else all your efforts go down the drain. Thanks for all this research and advice. I will keep them in mind for my next campaign. Keep writing. Cheers!
