Get Wild with Your Content with Oscar Wilde
If you’ve ever written online content, you know that there are some days when it’s just flat out difficult to “get in the zone” or “mood” to write. However, one of the hallmarks of a good content creator is the ability to pump out content no matter what the circumstance.
To do this, you might have to get a little wild with your content creation. Don’t worry, though, wild content is a good thing – it’s what made Oscar Wilde an icon. If you’ve ever read Wilde’s writings, you’ve probably wondered how it is he never ran out of interesting and witty things to say.
Simply integrate Wilde’s tactics for writing into your content creation, and you’ll find it easier than ever to consistently produce effective and useful content!
Wilde Was Wild
First, it’s okay to literally get wild with your writing. Oscar once said, “Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.” Unimaginative – I’d hate for anyone to use that word to describe my brand, and I’m sure you would say the same. So how do we avoid unimaginative? Get wild!
Spice up the way that you organize content. Think of a new approach to your voice or the ideas that you present. Take risks! As a result, your readers will be more entertained, which improves search engine results and makes clients happier!
It’s Impossible to Fully Know Your Audience
In content marketing, we hear all the time about how important it is to “know your audience.” However, it’s impossible to completely know how they’ll react. A brilliant blog or article that took you weeks to polish could be rejected by a client or trashed by readers in the comments section. Rest assured, however, that this is a common experience for all writers. Even someone as prolific as Oscar Wilde has experienced this. On audience reaction, he said, “The play was a great success, but the audience was a disaster.”
Sharing is Caring
Oscar Wilde championed this timeless and universal truth. He was a firm believer that the best lessons were un-teachable – that only experience writing could teach us about our voice and the deepest secrets of the craft.
However, Wilde also said that it was important to share information. Whether you share your writing secrets or useful information through your content, share through whatever means possible. Aside from creating useful content by sharing your knowledge, you’re creating good karma for yourself! It’s a win-win for everyone!
