1. Know how to write well.

That's it, really. Did you think there was something else needed?

Content writing is a little different than traditional writing. It's actually best not to sound formal or stilted, but to write conversationally, like you would a friend. People respond well to websites that are friendly and warm. When people write content that sounds like an encyclopedia, it doesn't engage visitors.

That said, if your key visitors are doctors or scientists, it's better to sound like a scientist than a surfer. ;-) You have to appeal to the visitor and do what adds credibility in their eyes.

The other possible qualification is to be able to write a lot. If you don't like to write, content writing is probably not the best task for you.

The first and the most important thing is to write grammatical correct content.

You should write correctly and have a skill to tell interesting stories. You also should know how to write for SEO.

To become a content writer you should follow so many things like content should be unique, content should not away from the topic and your content should not make any grammer mistakes
