Writing Series, Part One: What is a Content Writer?

By Forty-second street content writer

Content. The word gets endlessly tossed around throughout digital marketing circles. But what does it really mean? Content is defined in a couple different ways. Merriam-Webster says it’s “the topics or matter treated in a written work” or “the principal substance (such as written matter, illustrations, or music) offered by a website.” 

In turn, content writers write content. (Say that three times fast!) Content writers are trained to establish and maintain your brand’s voice, writing persuasively to convince people that your business is worthwhile. According to HubSpot, content marketing is “the process of planning, creating, distributing, sharing, and publishing content via channels such as social media, blogs, websites, podcasts, apps, press releases, print publications, and more.” That sounds like a lot of work! However, ultimately a successful content marketer can help you achieve your marketing goals, reach your target audience, and increase brand awareness, sales, engagement, and recognition.

Some people are searching for a copywriter instead of a content writer. Luckily, at Forty-Second Street, Inc., our content writing department also offers copywriting services. But what’s the real difference? Copywriting is defined as “the act of promoting or selling a business, organization, brand, product, or service, which makes it, by definition, a form of marketing.” Copywriters produce engaging, clear text for various advertising channels like websites, print and digital ads, social media, and many others. Duties include researching keywords, producing interesting written content and proofreading to ensure correct grammar, spelling, style, and punctuation.
