Write like you talk. Don’t use corporate fluff speak. You’re having a person to person conversation, just over the internet.

And most importantly, put your passion and spirit behind your words.
Let It Sit
Before you publish your content, let it sit for a day or two. Then, come back and review it one more time before you publish it.
Often times the second time around you’ll pick up on things you didn’t the first time. These could be grammatical mistakes, or it could just be more information you can put in that’ll make your content even better.
One crucial element to having people listen to what you have to say is credibility. There are so many people on the internet giving different advice; it’s hard to know who to listen to.
Have you helped over 1,000 people solve this specific problem? Make sure they know that. Have you been featured on the TV? Make sure that’s plastered all over your website. Have you done exactly what you’re teaching, in spades? Make sure they know that.

Here’s the bottom line: If you write in a way that really connects with your readers, you’ll build more traffic, more loyalty, more referrals and more sales. Write to connect with your visitors
