So, you write content. You create content. You are in the content writing business, and yet...
You don’t need to reach out to thousands of strangers on social media to create content that matters.
You don’t need to post every day to help someone see something in a ground-breaking light, and suddenly see that post go viral.
And nope, you don’t need tons of Likes and comments to know your content is helping one person out there.
Right now, you're reading this post, but will you comment on it? Chances are, you won't, and that's OK.
Those who want to have a share in your magic are likely to be reading anyway.
So if you think you aren't good enough because you aren't getting any Likes or leads this week, you are missing (at least part of) the point.
Content writing is not (just) about generating leads. It’s about connecting with people through the value you can provide them with.
Will they buy from you afterwards?
In the meantime, keep writing.
Because even when you lack the numbers that tell you you are doing awesome, odds are you're already making a difference to someone. Yourself and your brand included.
That's content writing with a purpose.
