Mattes, one of our SDRs and content writing experts, remembers that writing blog articles has positively impacted me in many ways.
I remember when I wrote my first blog. It took me a week to get 1500-2000 words together. And even then, a lot had to be edited.
After a few weeks and months of writing blogs, my performance improved. I became faster at researching, understanding, and executing.
Writing blogs became a task that helped me continuously expand my knowledge, and incidentally, my typing speed on the computer improved.
Of course, I have also learned a lot about SEO and know how and where to turn the screws to increase the reach of a blog.
Besides the SalesPipe blog
, I have also been writing blogs for Unfiltered for quite some time.
Unfiltered is a software tool that is used in the field of email deliverability. I write blogs about IT-related topics like sender scores, blacklists, ESPs, etc.
Besides these very technical areas, I can say that writing about sales topics has helped me as an SDR. I was able to deepen my knowledge of sales techniques
, terminology, strategies, etc., and apply it directly. My weekly training in the sales area was and is always given by writing sales articles.
All in all, I can say that writing is an effective way for me to learn about new topics because it helps to understand information by putting them into my own words. A great task that helped me understand the basics of my tech career.
