    Hello BHW,
    My biggest flaw when it comes to IM is coming up with creative unique content. My writing skills are very underdeveloped and would like advise on what I or anyone can do to become a better writer. I know the most obvious answer would be to write, write and write some more. I am going to start instead of hire content writers but would be open to listen to other ideas.

    Read news (real news not the spammy shit) articles in your industry
    Keep up with trends in your industry -- be the first to write content, or at least close to the first
    Read ebooks, newspapers, or content in your industry from professionals
    To improve your vocabulary, read at least 1 academic article in your industry weekly/daily
    When you come up with an idea, write it down immediately in a little Notepad file or note on your phone -- you lose the idea if you don't write it down
    Check out social media groups like G+ communities for questions... answer the question in your own article

    These are things I do, and it's really hard to come up with ideas sometimes

    If you can qualification good writing, you can do it by yourself, but you're not good at writing. You should hire professional copy writer to support you. I think it's better.

    oh, I just thought of some place else that gives me ideas. TV. I used to do Suite101 and would write articles based on the latest pharm commercial. lol It was great. A hospital in Canada actually reprinted my article and distributed it as info for the meds. lol

    But, depending on your niche, you can sometimes get what is popular or trending from TV commercials. This probably only counts for US though.

    Write like you talk, and you'll be better than 80% of the writers around. Most cheap writers try to impress with too much technical words,

    I've hired lots of writers before, and if you really want to compare your skills. get a $5 / $10 / $25 article for your site, and rewrite each of them for a web 2.0.

    You should find the $25 one easier to work with, and you'll be able to understand your skills once you finish rewriting it.
