Tips For Content Writing
A writer must always be in research mode to choose the topic about which the content will be written. Before writing I always research on the topic what I can add to the topic. Also how to present the topic to the user.
The best way to write content is to save the upcoming topics first and then start researching deeper.
I maintain a sheet in which I wrote the topics and then whenever I get extra time I do a little research to collect more information about the topic.
When I found a new point for the particular topic I add below it and then back to research mode. When I have a topic then I start shuffling the words to see how to represent the topic to the user.
When I have the basic idea and points for the topic next step is to find keywords that perfectly fits into the content. Keywords are the basic but most important part, as keywords will help your content to get visibility in search engine results.

So you can divide the content in form of bullet points and small paragraphs as lazy readers do not want to read large paragraphs.

Write small paragraphs not more than 3 or 4 sentences.
Your sentences must also be short, do not use long sentences.
Make the content compact for more readability by removing unwanted words.

You can change the whole content in form of infographics as people love to read infographics or you can add video tutorials where people can get practical knowledge than simple reading.
