Guest Blogger Eliza Ferree: Polishing Content

Okay, we've been talking all week about the business of content writing. Now lets talk about polishing it up. I mean you wouldn't try selling a car as is would you? Chances are if you did you wouldn't get any high bids. Sure, you'd get a few bids but most would be low. Someone looking to take it apart and sell it piece by piece, or to fix it up themselves and sell it for much more.

This is the same for content writing. Just like in the picture, you have to make the article shine. A polished article will shine all by itself, you won't have to add it to a group of other articles or a buy one get one free gimmick.

What do I mean by shining it up?
- Read all material over again (make sure it reads smoothly and there are no errors)
- Make sure it doesn't sound like anything you've ever read
- Double check any facts you may have put in.
- Be absolutely sure that it is the way the buyer wanted it. If it doesn't already have a buyer, try uploading it in a variety of different formats.

I hope these little tips will help you in polishing up your content. May you have a successful auction.
