    According to the author of the Three-Step Cure for Boring, Useless Content, the cure consists primarily in thinking like a journalist instead of a marketer. No offense to the great journalists I know, but most of the journalism I read today is as boring and useless as the content I read by many marketers. The key is to think, honestly, about what you find helpful and exciting and write, putting yourself in your audience's shoes, to please yourself. I'm often reading marketing copy and saying to myself, I have to remember not to write like that. It's not easy, but you need to do it. It means writing copy, setting it aside, and then reading it as though you're seeing it for the first time.
