Web content writing is nearly always done on a “ghostwritten” basis. That means that you’re producing content that will be published under other peoples’ names. Since your name won’t usually be attached to the final live version of your work – and since you’ll be expected to edit your “brilliant” work to your client’s specifications – anyone with an ego need not apply.

People come to your website with a specific task in mind. When developing your site’s content, keep your users’ tasks in mind and write to ensure you are helping them accomplish those tasks.

Instead, you will need to produce content fast and at a constant rate.
