5 ways to build authority as a writer


authority-boss-red-manThere are so many writers out there yet only a few have carved a niche for themselves as authorities in their chosen field. How in the world were they able to do that? Keep reading to find out.

Show up

An authority writer is consistent. Let people know you for a particular niche. You can be known as fiction writer, political writer, but you must keep consistent with one thing and let people know you for who you are. Write that e-book, build that online course you have always wanted to do but don’t stop writing.

Read and Research

You need to be sure of what you’re talking about. You have to constantly research what you’re writing about. Be sure of your facts and write confidently. An authority shouldn’t make so many mistakes when he is writing. Read, read and read. You can never read too much.



Celebrate your uniqueness

You will not become a trusted writer by copying another person’s writing style. Why don’t you search for that thing that makes you different and use it to your advantage. Whether it’s your sense of humour or unique writing style, you have what it takes to stand out from the pack

Attend relevant events

Apart from writing events there will be programs that relate to the niche you are focusing on. If you want to be known as a tech writer, attend the launch of new products, be the first to know about new trends. This way you’ll have relevant and timely information at your finger tips.

Be patient

Becoming an authority cannot happen in one day. If you started writing two months ago don’t expect to be seen as authority yet. It will take time. Authorities are trusted people it will take some time to get your readers to trust you. Don’t force things.
