Reminiscing My First Ever Digital Content Writing Course! Why is It So Special?
Writing has been a passion of mine for quite a while now. Unsurprisingly, I was naturally talented at it. I was pretty confident that my content/copywriting game was on point, due to all the appreciation I had received over the years. So when I first came across the Content Vidhya six-day content writing course on Instagram; I was kind of sceptical about signing up for it. Nevertheless, I had never undergone any formal training on this and thought I should take this up at least for the certificate. Boy oh boy!!, am I glad I signed up for this when I did. For the first time, I am able to ascertain where exactly my writing needed improvement and what I was not devoting enough attention to. Just goes on to show that, that there is always room for improvement no matter how far along one has come.
“It is a Content Driven world” this simple quote struck an enlightening chord with me. The effectiveness of good content was made abundantly clear to me. I learned the importance of a good headline and how to come up with one utilising the internet. In addition to his, I learned the broad classifications of writing.
On this day, I learnt how to embody passion for something through my writing. While my love for writing was evident in my content, the passion for the topic I am writing about was not immediately apparent. Thankfully, that is not the case anymore. In addition to this, I learnt to efficiently streamline my content development process, which is sure to take my content to a whole new level altogether.
The subtle differences between content writing and copywriting were discussed in detail on this day. Additionally, I learnt what effective copywriting looks like, including the various elements which constitute it such as landing page, FAQs et cetera.
The subheading above is not a typo. Day 4 was off in order to provide sufficient time for the copywriting assignment. So, with that resolved I’d like to focus on the learnings of day 5. On this day, I learnt how to zero in on my niche and the specifics I needed to focus on while doing it. I totally enjoyed this process as I had not done an introspection in quite a while. Additionally, I learnt the effective use of keywords.
Last but not the least, this day’s session began with subtleties of research for content writing. It then progressed to leveraging online graphic design tools for empowering the content. I then learnt all the other things a content writer needs to do to advance in his/her career. All in all, this was a great learning experience. One that I will cherish throughout my life. Thank you for everything Uma Madhavi ma’am, I am extremely grateful to you for teaching this course.
