Post #3 Can You See What I’m Saying? Paint a Clear Picture with Strong, Precise Verbs

Posted by on Apr 1, 2014 in Writing Tips | 0 comments

Have you ever read something and thought, “Wow, I wish I had written that?”  I usually feel this way when I’ve read something where the writer used the precise, descriptive words to describe action, emotion, feelings, etc. And it’s usually the skillful use of powerful, pointed verbs that make the difference.

Now, as a content marketing writer, I’ve been thinking about how I can transfer my love for writing these bootstrap stories...

Every where they turn, ads are chasing them, tackling them to the ground and making them cry uncle. Customers have gotten smart and either ignore the intrusions, delete them or shut them out by fast forwarding their DVRs. Content marketing on the other hand attracts potential customers by offering targeted information they can use. It is the new way to market. Coca-Cola is a wonderful example of a...
