Freelance Technical Writer, White Paper Copywriter for Hire
Long-form content is a term used to describe a blog posts or articles that are between 1,000 and 7,500 words, like white papers, or technical articles. The purpose of long-form content is to provide valuable information to the reader, and increase time spent on site.
A customer might want to read long-form content to get a deeper understanding of a complicated subject. I’m providing the most prudent information immediately because this isn’t a long-form content piece. It’s a landing page advertising my white paper copywriting, and long-form content writing service.
Your Business Needs Long-Form Content
If you write long-form content pieces that are useful to your audience, you can increase the time they spend on your website, and provide greater value to your reader. The more value you provide to the reader, the more likely they are to become customers.
An SEO will say that it’s not that simple — and I would agree — but they will also tell you that you need long-form content on your website. You don’t have to fill your blog with a bunch of 30-minute reads, but you should:
- optimize your website for search engines;
- add calls-to-action in the body of each piece, and
- provide ample content that provides value to your readers.
Long-form content is appropriate for every part of the sales funnel, and an essential part of any content strategy. But the most important reason to create long-form content is to provide readers with the information they’re looking for.
It’s always in a brands best interest to develop content that allows readers to see the business as part of the solution to their problems.
You Are The Brand That Answers Their Questions
When Google discovers that your content meets the user’s needs, it will rank your domain higher on the search engine results page (SERP). But there are few scenarios in which poorly written content ranks well.
You can’t polish a turd, and Google doesn’t rank bad content. So there’s no reason to spend money on content, if you don’t invest in a professional content writer to write it. If you want your content to perform well, it needs to be written well. End of story.

Expert Long-Form Content Writing
Before you ask, no, I am likely not an expert in your particular industry. I’ve never worked in your niche, nor am I a subject matter expert in your field. What I am is an expert writer with the content marketing expertise to push your brand to the top of the SERP. If you want a shop around for the “best _____ content writer”, you can.
But you’re signing up for a long, tedious search that will likely end in disappointment. You could be the foremost expert on a subject, but if you write like a fourth grader, no one will read what you have to say.
Ignore the content farms and anyone who claims to be both an expert in your particular field, and an expert content marketer. I will never claim to be an expert in your field, only an expert in mine.
As an expert content writer, blogger and digital marketer, I know how to turn any topic into marketable content that actually compels readers to “share”, “buy now” and “click here for more”.
